Why should they be throwing money to the wind ?

They don't need Thomas tonight anyway.

At worst, if there is an injury to one of the regulars, they can use a 7th d-man who got NHL experience, not a smallish guy who played ONE NHL game so far in his carreer, especially against the Bruins.

I wasn't arguing the point. I was just saying we have more cap than they originally thought. I wasn't freaking out, don't matter to me if Thomas is called up or not.

Maybe he's just bad so they scratched him.

Doubt it's anything. A trade has been "incoming" for the past two months.

Kristo would be a nice trade bait right now.

Too bad Bergevin and his pro scouts are clueless.

Totally false. They sign Wheeling guys to PTO's all the time when the D gets depleted. Not to mention the team is going on a long road trip.. they need the bodies.

If it's all about experts, why don't we shut the forum down? A fan gave an opinion, he's not running for anything. We can agree to disagree.

When the Habs traded Kristo for Thomas this Ad came to mind. Also came to mind when the Habs signed Briere.

it seemed odd though that they already had 7 guys under contract in HAM, but then someone mentioned Ellis is injured so that is the reason why they gave this guy a PTO.

you right he did and so did HCH.. someone gave a cliche jab at Bergevin over trading Kristo.. which happens every time Thomas is mentions any where on HF boards ...

and to segue way a bit here.. I get it people I really liked the idea of Kristo and was really really hoping to see him with the Habs some day, and I as well as most others suffered from great shock upon hearing the trade... but i got over it as really Kristo and Thomas are not that different of prospects except that Thomas is younger and an inch or so shorter i think.. wow big deal! small skilled sniper for small skilled sniper.. neither of which has shown anything in the NHL, might one day and might not .. until then let it go FFS. but i digress..

back to my original point.. every time someone insults someone or something to do with our team in a cliche and over used to the point of nausea manner we inevitably get someone express (completely understandable mind you) how sick they are of hearing it over and over from the same people with some little "how original" or "not again" and the best " something something expert" comment.. to which we are then treated to the extremely recycled "well then lets shut the board down since only its only about experts" comment..

which leads to people like me having to sift through pages of arguments and personal opinions based on the secondary topics and not the info and discussion we entered a particular thread for in the first place ..

this isn't meant to pick on you its just the millionth time I've seen this little forum dance of wit and finally had to say something about .. guy 1 says and opinion... guy 2 say opinion of guy 1 opinion. guy 3 say opinion that guy 2 should have his opinion, and guy 4 states his opinion that we should get the **** back on topic.

so can we please end the madness? no need to close the board. no need for anything extreme.. just stay a little more on the thread topic ...

ah who am i kidding it will never happen and i will still be here daily reading and inevitably have to deal with this ****. oh the joy of first world problems lol
