You mean like 26 year old Price, nearly 30 Pleks, over 30 captain Gionta, 36 Markov, 24 Pacioretty, 24 Subban, and 28 year old Gorges?

It's almost as if we have maybe 4 young players and a team-core chock full of established NHLers that should be supplemented with TALENT AT ALL TIMES.

Give your head a shake, and then your buddy's head a shake, and then your own head a shake. Quit defending the management with concepts you clearly don't understand.

You want to wait until when exactly? How young is our core?

Sometimes you have to grab proven players.
Of course, there's no garauntee. With good scouting and a good front office (as Chicago has), you can come pretty close, which the Hawks proved was good enough for 2 Cups in 4 years.

What's the point of hiring so many people up top when they're all idiots?

Gauthier had it right, I tell ya.
Did Boston strengthen themselves... just wondering?

The Habs so far have largely stayed pat with the young team that got them the division title. Yea we lost badly to the Sens but we also had a ton of injuries. Things aren't as bad as you make them seem.
What is the real weakness ? Weak wingers and weak defense... Was this addressed ? Nop.

Jeez this board is depressing.
Everybody knows we needed an enforcer. It's such a small and minor move, but one that was needed. Instead of wasting roster spots on two players like Kaberle and Weber that weren't even preferred to AHLers, then might as well have a big guy that can punch.

Can't believe people are whining. Some of you guys must have very boring and unfulfilling lives.

Who is that ?

And no because they're likely not reliable and just taking ******** from others.

Our team is WORST right now.

Gionta is injured and Emelin also. We are replacing both of them with Parros and Tinordi.
Briere replace Ryder.

This is not better. This is worst.

Even more when you see that you have 4 of the 9 smallest nhl players on your top6. And that boston, ottawa, toronto and detroit got all better

Did this management bring those players in? Unfortunately, nearly 30 Pleks, over 30 captain Gionta, and 28 year old Gorges won't be part of any Cups here. People cried for a rebuild. We have one, and people are still crying.

I'll be patient with this management, since it's all of one year old.

You mean Bergevin didn't have any assets whatsoever? Is he that bad at asset management?

I'd do that 10 times out of 10. However I feel Philly does it 0. Maybe if we throw in a pick or two.

Horton will be replaced from within. I agree about Ference although Hamilton might be able to step in.
