Well he didn't help him on the ice... so it must have been in the dressing room or discussing plays while they were on the bench. Gill should be a coach... I think he would make a great one.

The press conference was a whole lot of taking to say... nothing! A whole lot of hot air, in the land of make-believe. The fact remains that we're talking about predictable Habs: This year, like last year and like next year, unless…

For those who are still wondering about Andrei Markov and Habs. As per my tweet back March 25, A.Markov was offered 1yr deal by Habs. 5.75m.

Markov wants 3yr deal. When I mentionned that to P.Gauthier yesterday he didnt say not true, did he? Habs offered 1yr; Markov wants 3yrs

bert raymond's not drinking the kool-aid. i'm not a raymond fan but he basically says that at some point molson won't accept just making the playoffs..also said Gauthier can feed us what he wants, but habs aren't built to win 4 rounds

here is a idea, go out and get size,

enough of the guys that can't go on rides, cause they walk under the bar,

cammy and gionta are gold, but enough

Neither are 29 other teams each year. Only one team is "built to win 4 rounds". That's a silly statement now that we're eliminated. That's like me saying "the Dallas Stars aren't a playoff team" a minute after they get eliminated from contention.

We are only concerned with one team: ours.

I couldn't care less about the 29 others.

Agree 100% with the Bertrand article.

If the Molson's like having a guranteed 21,273 every night and one of the highest revenue teams in the league, then expect higher expectations.

I'm still wondering why Marinaro is still relevant. I hate his arrogant attitude over the past little while. He has very little reason to be.

Him and his Pierre Mcguire pumping on the team 990. My guess is Mcguire feeds them information so long as they promote him and a GM candidate.

I don't think Betrand Raymond has ever said anything positive about the team(until they proved him wrong about negative stuff he said earlier, he then just pretends like he never said anything at all).

Gauthier has had the team for a year and 2 months, very little cap space to work with and a lot of injuries to plug this year. Very hard to evaluate his work.

30 million dollar offseason is where we'll evaluate him.

i think pimping is the word you're looking for and i totally agree. Its so obvious too. It'll take more than a radio stations pimping to get him a job. Theres a reason why its almost 20 years he doesnt have one.

The radio pimping is enough to have fans believe that he should be.

I don't know what's sadder people who want Pierre Mcguire as our Gm or people who give a damn about the royal wedding.

Actually he was on RDS the other day and was very positive about what he considered 4 cornerstones/younger players of the franchise.

Price, Subban, Eller and Pacioretty.

Just saw this in Hickey's article about Gauthier:

Quote:
But as proud as Gautier is, there will be changes next season and the first will be in the coaching staff. Gauthier ducked a question about assistant coach Kirk Muller, but he'll be moving to the Dallas Stars. His appointment as head coach is on hold while the team awaits a new group of owners.

So now Eller is a cornerstone for Raymond. During the Halak trade Eller was a nobody and Gauthier was an idiot.

How these media people have jobs is beyond me.

Posters on this forum are much more informative and knowledgable that most on rds.

how much further along would that development be if Martin had allowed him more opportunity to learn and grow during the regular season (as opposed to waiting until Game 6-7 to give him minutes down the stretch in a close game).

If I'm Eller, and I hear this, I'd be shaking my head and hoping I don't have to deal with this coach for much longer...
Have you ever heard the expression `pay your dues?`

Or are you one of those people that expects everything to be handed to them?

The kid made mistakes on a regular basis, took stupid penalties, gave up the puck, and was not strong enough on his skates.

But according to you, he should be given premier minutes right off the bat.

Its called protection, progression and good coaching.

I also like the fact that your mind is so deluded that you think Eller only got 4th line scrub minutes until the very last games of the season.

**** me.

Just responding to your post stating that he nevers says anything positive about the team, which is just ridiculous.

I also said in that post that the only time he says something positive about the team is when he proven wrong. When he is, he just ignores what he says previously and acts like he knew it along.

Like I said. Raymond during the trade: Eller is a nobody and Gauthier is an idiot

Raymond at the end of the season: Eller is a cornerstone, Gauthier is still an idiot

Better yet. Ask Asterix why he disappeared when Andrei was on his game for the last like 25 games of the season. I guess like Gauthier, Asterix blows a lot of "hot air"

Can you point me to his article that mentioned Eller is a nobody? Also where Gauthier is an idiot?

He's paid for opinions, he isn't paid to agree with everything the organization does, like people do around here.

He's allowed to be proven wrong. It's not a crime.

The question from RDS was: who do you consider to be the 3-4 young cornestones of the franchise? He answered with those 4 names.

His opinions are crap. He provides no insight and is a whiner.

People here don't agree with everything management does and still provide much more insight without sounding like bitter whiney babies like Bert. Whitesnake, Ohashi, E=Ch, MathMan. They dont always agree, but they provide well structured arguments as to why they don't and don't whine in the process. These posters are also highly informative.

When I read bert I feel like I get dumber.

I'm surprised that nugget was buried inside a long article about something else entirely - maybe it's Hickey's (well-educated) conjecture? Seems like something that would have gotten its own headline.
