and it will suck for Montreal to have Bourque for 4 years and if Ramo turns into a player, its the nature of moving picks and prospects

I dont think its a coincidence he started tearing it up when his linemates did. Just like the prospect tourny he looked average at best when taken off the Baertschi-Reinhart line.

He was also a very streaky player last year.

Anyword from Habs fans on what they`ve thought of Bourque so farÉ
I don`t know if it would `suck` to have him for 4 more years, that`s not a bad contract......
What`s up with my keyboard and this Spanish E ****É, I can`t make a question mark!

They were very vocal and loved him after 5 games. Gone silent since, from what I've seen, combined with his stats, he looks worst than he was before the trade.. Which is a shame

I could agree with Bourque being streaky, although his slumps seem to be getting longer and longer the last two years. Not sure about Holland, I dont watch him at all, do you?

Have only seen a few games, but have follwed his progress regularly. He started last year off with a bang...then nothing for a big stretch, then a small streak, then nothing...
This year good start, slow middle, strong since just before the trade. I remember making a bet with someone that Ferland would outscore him this year....was lookinmg good for awhile, but this latest streak has settled that one.....

I was checking out the Hab's GDT during our game vs. them the other night... they're more negative about him than we ever were.

Thought he looked good for his first game. Moved his feet, played physical, and didn't look out of place at all.

Kid's gonna be a keeper!

Holland is 20 and playing against kids who are 16, 17 & 18. He is more developed and also plays on a line with two others who are older players. I highly doubt he can put up anything close to that in the NHL.

Go back to Bärtschi please. I just saw the game. And the commentator says:" It's hard to not be exited when we see what this kid can bring to the game" Something like this ;-)

During this game, he brought his speed and we can see he's pretty good on his skate, he can change direction very quickly. His positioning was almost perfect and he doesn't seam to be afraid any time. So, i would say his first game gives us a very hopeful glimpse for the future.

Holland is from the same draft class as Reinhart, so don't make it sound like he's some overager picking on kids. I hope hevdoesn't end up being a player we regret losing in an iffy deal. Hem's an overperformer and you can't have too many of those on your team.

What's with no umlaut on his jersey? That's not very MeTal of the Flames.

From what I saw last night, Sven looked good as I knew he would. You guys can send him back anytime soon... please? Thanks.

the Flames have never used an umlaut on their jerseys in fact I am not aware of any NHL team that does. it might be possible the NHL rule book states that the names have to be in English

Had to Google what an 'umlaut' was. Who says you can't learn anything on a message board?

Prefer his name without the umlaut. Baertschi looks better.

From what I can gather, the NHL does not allow umlaut's.

It was up to Sven to chose between Bartschi or Baertschi.

I learned what an umlaut is from Motorhead.

Baerstchi is a bit closer to the actual pronunciation, isn't it?

yes, pretty good example actually.

Motoerhead is to Motörhead as Baertschi to Bärtschi (at least in german).

Was he only up for the one game? I wasn't sure because I most emergency call-ups recently like Schenn/Kadri/Cowen have all been for one game.

Nope, He will play tomorrow against Minnesota and then will likely be returned to Portland.

yeah...it's hilarious that people put him down after he was traded.....

if he is still a FLames property, someone would have pulled out that prospect with 100pts thread again.
