I was just watching the Rangers/Flyers 24/7 again and what Paul Holmgren said about trading away Carter and Richards is something the conservative Habs front office need to think about..
This is what the Habs need to do.. The entire mentality around the Habs just needs to change but management doesn't seem to have the balls to take risks so we're stuck with mediocrity..
Who would be our "Carter and Richards"?
Those are two top end talents that garnered a lot of interest. I guess It could be Cammalleri and Plekanec if they weren't both playing poorly but they are. We have been saddled with dead weight from gainey and now have to deal with it.
I don't know what's the deal with Edmonton, it seems they are going to keep on drafting first overral for eternity. I mean shouldn't they start winning at some point?
This is actually fairly typical of a "scorched Earth rebuild", especially if you don't replace the craptastic management that precipitated the team sucking in the first place: you end up stagnating at the bottom of the standings.
the habs should draft a goalie in the 2nd, 3rd, 4th round. This will help there depth a bit.
And dont they still have Karri Ramo, but hes in Russia. Maybe Emelin should convince him to come over. and Erik Cole can pay for his flight.
