OUr 5 year window !

I think, our teams' 5 year window starts now. We do need to fill some holes but we are ahead of Ottawa when they started 6 years ago. Pitts also started their 5 year window last season. Sign 1 of the 2 Pitts will not be able to sign. There are some FA and UFA coming up we could land now that we are perceived as a contender.

BTW, one small change in our coaching, I want to see Larry Robinson over here in some capacity. Let him coach our young, big and mobile defence minus Briseboise and add either Valentenko (sp?) or Yemelin ( ?)

P.S
we would have beat Philly if we hit them as much as Pitts is !

Not really...

we have

McDonaugh, Pacioretty, Fischer, Yemelin, Valentenko, Maxwell, Chipchura who have yet to MAKE the team

you have

Price who's 20, the Kost brothers are in their 1st full season...

and we still have our scouts who continue to draft well...

more then 5 years, unlike Ottawa who didn't have a Goalie and Pitts who doesn't have youthful quality depth, just frontloaded on superstars

we have a lot of young guys, but eventually we wont be able to afford all of them, so you'd have to think that our window wont last a super long time ..

Our core is not at the same level as Ottawa's at the beginning of their run or Pittsburgh's now. I love our young talent, but there's a big difference between Higgins/Plekanec/Komisarek and Spezza/Hossa/Havlat/Redden/Chara or Crosby/Malkin/Staal/Whitney. Our goalie is probably better (9undecided between Price/Fleury as of yet).

We are not going to sign Malkin, Staal or Crosby. Live without.

I see exactly what you mean and I can agree to a certain extent but as you go forward you will lose some of the veteran talent already in place, we showed we can skate, score and to a lesser extent defend with the best in the league this year which means we have started now.

I was not thinking of either Crosby or Stall, but Malkin or Hossa.
Our core today is stronger than Ottawa was 6 seasons ago.
If you look at our core and compare it directly to Ottawa you will see what I mean. Markov>Redden etc..

Is Larry still employed by Jersey? I did not realize that but still would love to see it happen.

Well you can't say that about Brisebois and Quintal. Some people are better technicians of the game than players. Just because they weren't the best defencemen doesn't mean they don't understand the game outside the ice surface. Look at Gretzky, it's not like he's the best coach in the world.

Give those guys a chance before putting them down.

If we keep drafting the way we are, we'll be competitive for much more than 5 years. If we maintain a steady stream of young talent into the team, we'll be able to let talented players go if they get too expensive.

Ideally we draft better than what we need, so we can afford to purchase playoff rentals, putting us over the top during key years.

If you have a good organization, your window should never close.

I agree with you
However , IMO, Brisebois obviously has a lot of experience and can teach that tho those younger ones, but any other good D coach would do the same too.
What I feel that Brisebois is good at, is PowerPlay, and first pass, sometimes he screws it up but that s his own judgement, the player that he ll teach it to might not do the same mistake, but those 2 things, especially PP play, we have already 3 specialists they ll do the job.
Maybe, as you said, he might be good at showing at it to other people and tell them the right thing to do. I wouldnt mind giving him a chance, it might work, but I d prefer if they aim for the best guy there is in there or a guy that was known for being a very solid D man in his own zone.

I agree that I would try and go for the best guy. Clearly Robinson would be that guy considering he was one of the best defencemen of all time AND he's a Stanley Cup winning head coach. The only problem is the fit. Being a head coach in the past might mean he's not willing to take a minor role as a defence coach. Granted, I don't know that for sure.

The Habs had Andy Murray as a scout when he was let go by the Los Angeles Kings and he did a great job. Then he was offered the head coaching position in St Louis and felt that was a better place for him to show his skills. If it were up to me I'd have Pat Burns as an assistant since he understands the game more than most. But is he willing to take a back seat? You never know.

I would try and look for an actual defence coach for sure. But I wouldn't turn down Brisebois or Quintal if they offered.

Re-quoted for formatting. Still not great, sadly. Is there a way to increase the width and height inside a CODE tag?

BTW, one small change in our coaching, I want to see Larry Robinson over here in some capacity. Let him coach our young, big and mobile defence minus Briseboise and add either Valentenko (sp?) or Yemelin ( ?)

P.S
we would have beat Philly if we hit them as much as Pitts is !
save your exclamations.. jeeze

We are not going to sign Malkin, Staal or Crosby. Live without.
When you talk about our young talent how do you forget to mention AK, SK and Lats. OK maybe because Lats has only shown glimpses, but the kid is 20. Our vets Koivu, Kovy, Markov and Hamrlik are much better than Ottawa's at the time ie: Alfredsson, McEachern, Leschyshyn.
Pittsburgh is a different story, their main pieces are incredible. We'll see what happens to that team next season, they could lose Hossa, Roberts and another UFA or risk losing Malkin or Staal

Never mind this 5 year window stuff... The Habs will be contenders for much longer than 5 years.

I agree with everybody who say we gonna be competitive and contenders for more than 5 years. But it's where we gonna see how great is our hockey mind. We gonna choose between some talented and loved habs players. It's where a team like Detroit make wonderful job.

The other difficulty is that our young players take the load in the same time. This year, Komisarek became a monster, Andrei K. played like an all-star, Plekanec became a 1st line center, Carey Price a no1 goalie and Sergei K. show us is a diamond in the rough. And we have to sign Koivu and Kovalev next year too. The prospect to come will not cost us big at the beginning, but with time it will be harder and harder.

we have a lot of young guys , but no real superstars like Ottawa/Pitts or even Detroit.



Crosby,Malkin, Datsyuk, Zetterberg , Spezza, Heatley*Hossa, Alfredsson.



IMO that's the big difference
