I feel for RC because he's basically on an island all alone because he doesn't speak french, and because he's a rookie, but come on? If Plekanec isn't going head to head with opposing teams' top lines, RC will see more of what happened tonight.
Maybe he's just listening to HFboards, who think Plekanec sucks and we should go into next year with a DD, Eller and a rookie tandem.
on top of the tank they need to bring up some young guys who will compete, gel as a team and create internal competition.
bring up schultz and play him with white on 4th...
let leblanc play in top 6...
get rid of gomez asap
they need to bring up Henry ,to play rest of season out .
The overreactions here are priceless. One bad season and people want to blow up the whole thing. Thank God management doesn't listen to the fans.
Lets hope they don't listen... this team is better than their record suggest ( especially if you factor in injuries ). The only players I'm willing to trade ( unless someone severely overpays ) is Moen, Gill, Campoli, Kaberle, Gomez ( wishful thinking ).
Starting fresh next year with a couple of key additions ( top 3 draft + off season UFA signing ) will do wonders IMO.
Exactly.. when we send Gomez in the minors, we clear cap space for a high quality UFA (hopefully Suter), add a top end talented foward picked in the top 3 of the next draft and this team can get back on the right track quick enough, especially considering our prospects pool on D, thats promising.. and there is still the possibility of Markov coming back at an interesting level at some point...
Exactly right. We just need to get rid of some dead weight, make some smart moves at the deadline and during free agency and we'll be back in playoff contention next year.
We are getting Gaunce next year or Galchenyuk forget Grigorenko or Yakupov we are going to finish 11 th in the east.
If we are lucky we are Getting Forsberg.
I want Moen Gill Kostitsyn (only because of the return we could have for him) Plekanec (same reason) Gomez (you know why) gone at the dealine or as soon as next year.
Kostitsyn i'd like to keep him but i guess he will never have the real shot the get a top 6 role on the habs with those two jokes of a coach that we have.
Cunneyworth is not horrible but we need a coach that will kick the ass of our heartless players. Bring in Roy por favor.
1. Even if we were to tank, we only need to draft at #2-5 so we can still be afforded ~10 wins or so. That way we can still get Forsberg or Grigorenko. Worst case scenario, we get Girgensons.
2. Roy is going to cost us big, if we somehow signed Roy, perhaps even more than Subban. Because not only we would want Roy, don't forget the Avs who also have a chance to snag him, let alone the Blue Jackets or the Islanders (if Capuano gets canned at the end of the season and that the Isles somehow decided that a better coach was what they needed)
Its been that kind of season. The moment the devils made it 3-2, you just knew that the habs were going to find a way to lose, and there was never any doubt about it. The only thing you wonder at that point is whether they can pick up a loser point.
