I have to say... I did like watching Murray throw around a few Bruins. If we're gonna stink this season, might as well do it with some brawn.

And even if he wasn't making the Habs...wouldn't it be great to have a guy like that with the Dogs?

We waited for Kristo for 4 years. We saw him improved and dominating his last year (as most seniors do, I know) But he improved all spheres of his game. I personnally think that Kristo has much more hockey sense than Thomas. And to me it's key for an offensive player. And like I said before..that's coming from a guy who like Thomas....but, I know, coming from a REALLY big Kristo fan for having followed him all 4 years....
I see..but we're supposed to take two periods from Thomas in his first exhibition game seriously......much more seriously than Kristo playing actual pro games in Hamilton, and rather poorly.

Did Kristo look ready for the NHL six months ago? No. What else am I supposed to base it on...his USHL play? I saw him develop for four years too....five actually as he played a season in the USHL after being drafted too. Yes he just had a big year in college..finally...at 22 1/2 years of age.

Before doing that he manage to alienate the organization on at least three occasions - i.e. getting so drunk that he couldn't find his shoes so he decides to walk home without them in -20 weather; not signing with the Habs after his junior season so he could keep the party going despite the Habs wanting him to sign..rightfully so after waiting four years for their top pick in 2008; and then Kristo staying true to his word and being suspended by his club for excessive partying...then going to Hamilton and not doing a very good job of impressing the staff with his play or his attitude on and off the ice.

Kristo never really improved one other facet of his game needed to truly help the Canadiens - he never put on much muscle....the kid is still a skinny rake...the club does not need another forward lacking size, particularly a slight one with a questionable attitude and hockey sense. He didn't hit the gym like the team would have liked...for five years!! He's now 23 attending his first NHL training camp..still slight, still naive, still a long way to go IMO.

The club didn't see him as a fit in the future..so they picked up a younger player who was drafted higher. Maybe Kristo gets a better chance in New York and he takes advantage of it...maybe he's a better fit there. these things happen. The Habs' brass, after five years of the Kristo Wait..decided it wasn't worth it. I'm pretty sure it wasn't a willy nilly decision that simply came out of the blue.

Doesn't mean the trade made no sense - you aren't in the front office WS - you weren't in Hamilton or in negotiations with him, you weren't part of the Habs' development staff who tracked his progress in person and interacted with him, his coaches and teammates....if you look deeper beneath the surface...there were definitely reasons why he was traded..several of them.

Tarnasky disappointed me, I was expecting a little more from him.

Why i feel Briere's signing was not a good fit:
-Can't play with Desharnais, because they'll never get on a consistant basis good puck possession
-(probably) Can't play with Plekanec, for defensive reasons
-Who knows if he can play well with Eller

He should be playing on the 4th line and can we please unshackle Max Pac from this midget. Just because they were good together 2 seasons ago doesn't mean you should keep them together for another season.

I thought these posts were all jokes but now I'm scared that someone is actually being serious.

The pre-season literally means nothing. We can lose every game and it wouldn't matter at all once the season starts.

He doesn't stop working, which makes up for his lack of skill. Hell of a skater too.

FYI when the blackwawks won the cup in 2011 they lost 4/7 preseason games, not saying we'll win it this year. But there is no reason to think stink after losing a pre-season game.

He basically says the same thing after every loss, so it's nothing new.

He never played a *BAD* game imo... He just never can do anything with the puck that ends up a + rating or can he be a significant physical presence.

Bad 3rd, and I can't wait for the real season to start. But we're definitely going to need a better PK to have a good season.
