Anyway with those players we will never win a cup.

Get the TANK ON!!!
Patofqc does this mean the Habs can add Drouin,Gauthier,Wennberg,Mantha & Carrier and maybe Compher,Hartman,Lazar & Dauphin.Ah what the **** I'm tired of losing to the Refs anyway.I'm in!

One year is enough.

Btw how does tanking works for the Oilers? They tanked about 4 times more than us and they still suck. I'm not blind enough to say they will suck forever but man, I don't want to wait 3 more years to be competitive. There are other ways to get more competitive.

I didn't want to be the one to bump this thread, as I feel it's still to early to tell.

At the beginning of the season, before games were played, I predicted 11th-15th place. However the improved play in the first few games made me suspect that bubble team status was possible.

We'll have to see, obviously finishing 14th is better than finishing 9th.

My guess is they will have a cup before us.

Yeah, just like the Blue Jackets, Leafs, Panthers or even the Jets (ex-Thrashers) have a great future because they all saw close to no playoff action since the lockout?

I prefer trying to upgrade our team through trades, solid draft (no matter where we pick) and UFA than to suck for an extended period of time with NO guarantee to win the cup in the end. See Washington, Capitals.

Well, I'm not posting in patofqc's 'tank thread' because that guy is basically a troll who wants the club to lose for the sake of it.

You are wrong. I have been a Habs fan longer than i have been a Nords fan. I have been a Habs fan ever since the Patrick Roy trade in 1995 i believe. Thats almost 18 years going. Was a Nordiques fan for 10 years. Of course i would love for my beloved Nords to be back. But i will still root for the Habs, equally.

They drafted poorly. We have Timmins has head scout, that wont happen to us. We will be more like Pittsburgh and Chicago.

In the playoffs, IF we make the playoffs, this team will not win with guys like DD in the lineup. Things get rougher and tougher, and DD is not meant for that. Our entire D is not meant for it, we have a very very very soft D. Guys like Diaz, like tonight, are no match for bigger guys. Even Markov has been very soft this year.

If this team wants to win for a while, we have to trade vets and dump players that are not in the long term plans for this club. I just don't know if there's any demand for anyone we have, that's the big issue.

Yet, you to totally ignore what I said about the Caps. The sucked for a long time, drafted fairly well but still have no cup. And it doesn't look like they're going to win one anytime soon.

You can't just say that we will be like the teams that have successfully tanked to prove that it's a good way to win. You have to take into account that it may fail and we may suck for nothing in the end. Or else, your argumentation isn't worth *****. The same way someone who says that tanking would absolutely lead to nothing would be wrong.

If we're not going to make the playoffs, then yeah I guess lets tank, it's better than finishing 9th. But the thing is that so far it looks like we'll make it to the playoffs this year. We have a pretty good team.

We finish last year with all those player we should trade to get picks. It wont be worst without them in the lineup and younger players will be able to play more.
