He better be francophone, and not another American taking the university route.

According to new information from other scouts on the Habs board, here is the new possible draft rankings list for the Montreal Canadiens:

1.Duke49 (consensus number 1 pick)
2.BTN (Global Moderator)
3.Chipper (Montreal as preference, top-5 prospect, speaks French)
4.Kevin Oneel (Moderator, helped organize this draft)
5.Juzmo (9.58 ppd)
6.Shameus (Global Moderator)
7.Sunshine36616 (Top-5 potential, female)
8.BreakTheWallsDown (Montreal as preference)
9.ManifestoDestiny (Montreal as preference)
10.Gern Blanston
11.NetMinder17
12.John Cena (troll, high PPD count)

What changes should we make to the list? Who should be higher on our rankings, or lower?

Then he finds some of the worst rappers I've ever even heard of, guys that make Lil Wayne and all those scrubs sound like microphone gods. (Don't get me wrong if you like Wayne it's cool with me, I understand he has some good beats and sometimes has had good rhymes, but he's far from notably good at rhyming/writing songs. He likes guys that are by far 100x worse in every department, or at least he claims to by saying they're the best rappers ever etc, again to get a rise out of people)

I've seen this kind of trolling on other boards and online in games time and time again. People will claim to be fans of Bieber, Catholicism(To religious extremes), say WWE is real, say that Soulja Boy is the best rapper, etc. They say things that are generally counter-norm for internet forum dwellers in order to insight a rise out of people. It's just the way people troll these days because it's freedom of speech and though it isn't really their opinion they can claim it is and who are we to tell them it isn't? But I've seen it repeated so many times it just gets old. He's trolling and getting away with it cause that's what the "smarter" trolls do these days apparently.
Meh. If he's such a high-level troller, I probably want him even less than if he's the idiot he passes as. More so, I've seen him post way too much just in the Lost threads for him to be a troll. He probably does say stuff to rile people up but I believe some of his opinions are genuine. Anyway, I'm sure we won't draft him so like I said, it's a non-issue. Either way, I don't think he'd be a beneficial asset for us.

Yes but we picked up an admin. Now we can rule HF. *Evil laugh*

Besides, our scouting department felt that btn would be gone before our turn. Our only opportunity to move up, would be adding Whitesnake to the deal.

What we lack in elite trolls, we make up in depth. We have many 2nd line trolls at best.

It's pending RWF removing his NMC.

Pffft. He never asked for one.

I'm not trying to say the guy has never made a post that wasn't an effort to troll, I'm just saying that he is a troll and adding a troll to our roster might not be as classy as the habs org has in mind

Obviously the guy isn't completely fake I'm just saying a lot of what he posts is.

Another example is DeathFromAbove, it isn't like the dude is a complete troll and only posts for the sake of trolling, in fact I've had a few random legit discussions with the guy. While neither are 24/7 constant trolls they both troll quite often in terms of what I was saying above. Obviously everyone on an internet forum is going to have a differing opinion with regard to certain things and all but it's when you're saying something purely for the sake of getting a rise out of others and not due to opinion that imo you cross the line of opinion and enter the troll world.

I'm not saying that's all they're good for though, just want you to know the prospect well before you make a decision

I love an active GM!

While we're at it, any chance we can offer a package to Columbus for viqsi? I've been downright astonished by the potential she's shown lately and I don't think I'm the only one...

If you want a legit troll then petition to get Jumbo brought back and sign him over from the Oilers. Otherwise the ones listed in this thread won't measure up to your standard

Who is sending our first round pick a Habs jersey?

From what I've seen, I would be more than happy with btn or chipper. btn has the experience, and I'm sure chipper is going to be a fan favorite down the road.

News from the combine: btn knows what L'Antichambre is.

Can't decide if this is a good or bad thing character-wise.

After recent returns and signings, HF Habs has no money for the likes of Duke, Oneel or btn.

And if my signing bonus bounces, so does you, H10H. Or is it H18H now, lost a bet?

With the trade for RedWingsFan I don't think we have much of a chance at getting anyone like Chipper or BTN now. I don't really know who RedWingsFan is but hopefully he is a very good poster
