I'm clearly a fan boy criticizing Bergevin and the management.
Every team in our division except Buffalo has managed to either stay strong or pick up interesting new pieces. Bobby freaking Ryan just joined the team that beat the crap out of us and you're not the least bit annoyed at how incompetent this management is looking?
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?
Most teams in the division have lost significant pieces of their team and have been forced to overpay in free agency to fill those voids.
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.
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?
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.
