To add insult to injury, Alex Chiasson is a HUGE habs fan (I know this b/c my mom worked with his parents and gave his sister english lessons) not to mention that he's that big Quebecois power forward we've been looking for.
Well actually no one is crazy as there's no indication that Kristo won't be an important player as well. And I do think he will be a key player in the NHL. Now, it's all great to think that Chiasson will also be great....but he won't be a goal a game till the end of his career. Dallas didn't have that much pressure after trading Ryder and Jagr, kid came up and with not a lot of pressure is just lighting out right now. Will indeed be a very good player, but let's not analyse a deal that wasn't made based on what's happening right now. At least not yet.

Absolutely. I still believe Kristo will be very good but I think, in terms of size, we need a guy like Chiasson more than we need a guy like Kristo right now. And if Kristo comes to match Chiasson in production, I'd still take Chiassson over Kristo any day due to his size element.

Either way, whether Kristo was involved or not, the Habs should've been trying to trade for Chiasson last yr when he was still in the NCAA. We could've easily traded a 2nd rounder and a prospect(s) for him.

Kristo will be good to replace Gionta. The sooner the better.

Gallagher is already replacing Gionta... I'm not counting on Kristo to replace anybody tbh, and it'll be a nice surprise if he does contribute at some point.

Gionta is still on the team, thus is not replaced, yet?

Pittsburgh close to acquire what is probably the most interesting NCAA goalie in Hartzell. I wished we would have got him....

He's suppose to be one of the best goal tending prospects in the NCAA.

We need goalie prospects, don't we ?

If you tried to sign him and he choose Pittsburgh, no harm there. If you sat on your ass and didn't even try...

How unfortunate it is for us not to know one way or the other.

Well aside from his last game....he is a big goalie, good glove, very agile and fast legs for a guy his size, athletic. Really good project to work with.

Don't know whether to be an angry mob, or a sympathetic fan base.

Would be sick to snag Laganiere.

Nashville losing to Detroit, those 2nd rounders just get better and better.

Rinne had a really good game, except those 2 goals that seemed unstoppable to me (similar to the goals Price let in the second to last game against boston).

I wonder if Det is going to make it. They certainly helped their case tonight. Det-Chi would be awesome.

Seriously, sometimes it's better to just jump aside and let the goalie stop it.

They're playing the Canucks tonight. I can't see how they can win with all those injuries.

Forsberg played his 1st game last night but he didn't look ready to breakout.

Thanks guys, sucks I guess we could have used him since we aren't that deep at that position

Well maybe not back to back but the Flames and Preds pick aren't going to be far from each other, hopefully both in between 30-35

Replaced by MacTavish, with Scott Howson taking over for whatever Mac-T was doing.

Reminds me so much of when we fired Gainey, got all excited for a big change, and then got his right-hand man Gauthier as a replacement.
