Kid has some serious talent, needs to work on shooting and face offs and he's set.
I Agree.. He played hockey in Denmark. It's not like they have the best hockey schools.. His talent may still be very raw.. He should a lot of heart and he seems like his potential is yet to be reached..

It's worth the wait and time to let him develop.. I can see him become a Koivu with time... I hope I'm right..

Give him Kostitsyn and DD as wingers for a whole season and you'll see what he can become.

I honestly see Eller as a play maker that will put up many assists but not many goals.
He's only 21 and he won't reach his full potential for another 4-5 years.

In 4-5 years, do you beleive that he will still be playing with the Canadiens ?

Not many players have played 5 or motre years with the habs in a recent past, especialy the youngsters.

Eller must have 30 to 40 points this year and be ready to have a top-six role the following year.

More non-credible rumors.

Less non-credible lineups.

Due to the anomaly that was Gainey's rapture in the summer of 2008.

IMO Lupul is softer than any of those players.

The only person i see softer than Phil Kessel is Nathalie Portman when she plays the white swans.

I know. Saddest thing about Lupul was how he cried like a little lamb to the press after PK Subban cleaned his clock. Pathetic.

Nothing new here but still. Blog by Eric Engels :

http://www.hockeybuzz.com/blog/Eric-...aders/82/37016

- Spacek and Gomez will be traded at some point...

- Gorges will sign 4-6 year deal at around 2.8-3.5M per.

nope, nothing new as usual. We still need more scoring. Cole alone will not pole vault us out of 26 in scoring. Hopefully Pacioretty and Markov have a huge effect which they should. Still need another scoring winger IMO

Yes! Hope is the word. There's a lot of "if" this season.

Imo, we would need also a top3 D and someone who could drop them and good on the PK.

Everyone has their opinion. I respect that. But I don't think Gorges is a top 3.

And yes I think we'll be lacking scoring again this year. Too many 40pts type of forwards. If possible, a trade or two could help this team.

Gionta, Cole, Gomez and Akost are (or should be) minimum 55pt players. Pleks and Cammy should get 65+... It's just that Markov's injury and Gomez's off year really screwed everything up last season.

Pacioretty, Eller and DD are wildcards too, so don't forget them either.

How do you figure.

Andrei has never hit 55 points in his career, Gionta and Cole have only done it twice over a 10 year span. Taking that into account, how do you grant them 55 point seasons, and then follow that up by considering it their minimum production?

I'm willing to bet that out of the 4 guys you listed as 55 point players, only 2 hit even 50 points.

I agree with you. Un real expectation on AK. He is 45 pts at the max. We will have a bunch of 40 -50 pt guys. Offence will still be our downfall
