But those excuses were never bad ones in and of themselves. They actually do apply in certain situations, Whiskey. Standing pat and being patient is not necessarily a bad thing. It got to be a bad thing with Gainey because he did it for years. He wanted to build from within, but he didn't even do much to acquire picks or sell off potential UFAs. We basically started over a year ago. If Bergevin is making these excuses in two years then we have something to worry about. I know that's frustrating. But that's where we are.

So far he's been arrogant and full of excuses. Prices are too high? Too bad, make our team better or get bent, we're into winning, we're not in the excuses business.
He obviously isn't going into detail and showing his hand in a PC, but he's been making a lot of good, clear statements which at least keep us informed. Gainey was pure silence until after. (EX: "It wasn't we lost on VL, let's get Briere"). He's making a real effort to show he is making his rounds and asking around/ shopping guys aggressively.

As for the prices being high: He is being smart and not taking crappy offers. What do you think some GMs are trying to pry from montreal? Like I said in another post, I'd rather he have to wait than to have another Gomez disaster. And I don't think he's been arrogant in the slightest.

Rumeur. Échange Montréal-Philadelphie. Coburn, Simmonds et Talbot pour Plekanec, Beaulieu et Moen.
That's a trade that plugs a couple needs but opens another really big one.

No C on the habs can fill plekanec's shoes right now

Doesn't Philly have 4 centers not even counting Talbot? The Plek plus for Simmonds trade makes no sense for anyone besides twitter rumor mongers.

Not even close to being as bad as Stéphane Laporte. At least Gagnon only talk about hockey.

That's me, and I disagree. Don't feel like getting into a debate on HFboards though. If you disagree that Eller is not more than a 3rd line center (even though he's being played as one), then I don't know what to say... We have a difference of opinion - no point in butting heads.

Giroux can play wing, maybe they want him on a line with Vinny and Voracek? And keep Read and Schenn as wingers?
