There was a rumour that Tanguy would be moved to the Huskies to make room for an extra D, and I crossed the Ts with Brisebois back from RN.

But instead, another player left and an OA Carrier comes in on D.
Great move by the Armada.
I now have to place them in first above Halifax and Quebec.

Where's their offense?
Yes. Now the league has a clear cut big 3.

Their offense was pretty good last season, alittle better than Halifax, and they now added Carrier...
They have a very deep lineup also.

IMO this is crazy but Bathrust is right, they are clear cut #1...

Before it was arguable, but they add arguably the best OA OFD in the Q, to an already deep lineup...

The can score and play D...

BLB's offense is better than Hali's?

I really need to stay off these boards in summer. WAAAAY too muh analyzing this off-season makes me want to shoot myself after every second post. Bathurst is top-5, BBA is a clearcut #1, Ross Johnston has hands... All things that make me want to pull my hair out and scream...


Start the season!! Lol

Obviously you are getting itchy and for reason.....your plan is to see your team win it all and now you can see opponents coming up the horizon....and Cam did nothing significant so far.

He said BLB's offense was a little better than Halifax LAST YEAR

Maybe you should learn to read instead of pulling out your hair

In terms of depth BLB's offense is the best in the league...

And if J.B doesn't like his offence or defence we know that he'll change it.

Depth is not everything, but it is important indeed.

However I am surprised that you rely fully on J.B to make changes if necessary, and not on LGM to do the same.
LGM proved in the past that he can make changes pretty quick and the Titan got all the necessary ammunition ot do so.
For the same reason you are confident in your GM, so am I....

Mike Kelly is my GM.

The Armada can roll 4 lines.... All of which can hurt you...

They remind me of us, just we were pretty hot, they also have a brick wall in nets... There no SJ, but I truly believe they will win the Q.

Barhrust has a ways to go..
1 1/2 lines isn't enough, even with one or 2 solid D...

The goaltending is sketchy...

They would need M.M to be lights out at 16...

A D man, and a complimentary scorer... Just to be in the same breath...

They have an outside shot, if LGM is will to pay a heavy price, (which the addition of Hynes indicates) then the Titan will have a go.

Halifax has similar depth AND better firepower.

I think Boisbriand has better depth than all the other teams though.

As I posted in another thread Clapperton, Roy, Paquette, Giroux, Lebel, Jevpalovs, Matteau, Hodhod that's 8 forwards with 40 points potential and we havn't talked about Tanguy (might be traded) or Aquin (injured) yet.

Halifax is 3 lines deep, with a monster 4 guys..

And a sleeper in Ciampini.

Cam brought in Fournier. And i've been aware that there's opponents on the horizon for awhile now. A long grueling summer . BLB and Quebec were the teams in my eyes to compete with Halifax and yesterdays trade strengthens that opinion. And for the past couple months each team has brought in one 20yo player (Fournier, Brisson, Carrier.. Quebec with Kuch and Shea too) so have fun with your "Cam is sitting still" theories

Oh and what have the almighty Titan done? Acquired a good scorer and traded your starting goalie. Sounds like a bonafide contender. Although i've never seen a team win 68 different 9-8 games

hey guys, sorry to interject, a couple friends and i will be in downtown montreal in october and it looks like we wont have nhl at that time. how easy is it to get from downtown to the rink in boisbriand? are the tickets easy to come by as well? would be cool to get to a junior game as i enjoy college hockey here in the states, i think they are of comparable levels.

A complete pest, fans of opposing teams are already calling for his head and it's only pre-season

In other words; he is amazing

It's a pretty easy ride from downtown Montréal to Le Centre d'Excellence Sport Rousseau, home of the Blainville-Boisbriand Armada. It's about 30-45 minutes, depending on traffic.

Just use google map or something alike, you can't really get lost.

If you'd rather watch the Drummondville Voltigeurs, le Centre Marcel Dionne is about a one hour ride from Montréal, it's also pretty straight-forward getting from downtown Montréal to the arena (if there's no traffic).

To be honest with you I HIGHLY doubt it

There might be but you'd probably have to transfer once or twice

Probably be able to go from Montreal to the Terrebonne terminus and then catch another bus to Boisbriand

Someone else could definitely be more useful than I though as I rarely if ever use public transportation

I'm getting the feeling you'll be in Montreal on vacation and will mostly use the subway or bus, so you might actually have a pretty hard time getting to Drummondville or Boisbriand... especially after the game at 1030 PM, good luck finding a bus back to Montreal...

As for tickets you might want to buy them in advance especially if it's against Quebec, Halifax or Gatineau

Hearing this as a Devils fan makes me grin big. It's been a while since we've had a player like that. (Of course this is assuming he develops into a good NHLer and makes sure not to cross the line with his pest-ness ;P Which I have faith he will)

Good luck with the upcoming season, will be following Armada closely.

Actually I view Matteau's upside as somewhat David Clarkson-like. Isn't Clarkson pretty much a pest that can grind it out and score, like Matteau?
