He ripped the coaches and management when he hurt his wrist, saying he was rushed back, never got checked up on, understands why free agents are now avoiding Edmonton, etc. So they buried him in the minors for the rest of his contract.

Of course, but I don't remember anyone making a suggestion to bring him back in the summer.

When was this? I don't recall him saying that outright but maybe he did. I seem to recall he preferred to sign with Edmonton after he left the Habs because its his hometown (or close to) and because he wanted to play on the west coast to be closer to his wife and where she works (LA). Anyone else recall that or am I getting confused?

Another concussion for Latendresse! I hate these concussions and that fact that neither the NHL or the NHLPA has the intelligence to start laying down the law.

Don Cherry and his disciples should rejoice

That is how I remember it, too. Maybe we are right or just equally confused.

Always liked Souray. Would have taken him back in a heartbeat at any point since his departure if it weren't for the salary.

Every GM in the league had a chance to add Souray to their squad last season... I believe multiple times. Given what he's shown so far, he probably could have been a difference maker for some playoff teams.

Sheldon's having a great year, but he had a pretty poor year offensively last year in the AHL. If anyone could've predicted this kind of production before the season started then good on them.

There has been studies showing that the magority of concussions in the NHL do not occur via hit to the heads but from simple hits to the body.

He doesn't need a puck-mover next to him like even more recent shut-down defensemen, such as Komisarek or Regehr, though he'd probably benefit in having that (as he does with Girardi now).

I forget where the discussion was taking place on McDonagh and where he'd fit in the Habs' depth chart, but he seems to be a legitimate #3 right now in my eyes.
The guy was my favorite Habs prospect from the last 10 years. I had never been so impressed excited by a young player in a while and knowing that the Habs had him was giving me goosebumps. And I even placed him above PK. And his strength to me was always his vision. PK is a natural but McDonaugh is like the opposite of him in that he's not the most quick, not the strongest but he does everything well. Sort of like Markov but more physical? When Gainey traded him my heart pretty much sank. I kept imagining him both PK and Ryan on the D squad together and the futur couldn't have been more brighter.

He wanted to be closer to his ex-wife (who lived in LA at the time) so he he could see his daughter more. Apparently his relationship with Montreal management was still good on his way out, he made a point to call Montreal as first rate organization when he was slagging the incompetence of Edmonton's front office.

I had high hopes for him, too. You see, we can agree son some things.

No luck since the trade, really. If it's not concussions it was his groin. It sucks because it'd be nice to see what he could do on a consistent basis.

Interesting. Do you have any links handy for these studies?

He was in juniors. Fell in the draft because of that.

Laying down the law against who? They don't even know when he got the concussion....

Anyway, it was a bad move past, present and future. And going back to the Rivet deal, well the great move was to get a 1st round pick. Not Pacioretty. A 1st round pick. Pacioretty was Timmins'.

And it's just only ONE who got away....

And people who bring the Kovalev vs Balej deal as a steal for the Habs.....you can clearly put it on the "miss" by the Rangers. It is common knowledge that Plekanec was ALSO offered and THEY chose Balej. But I'm always a fan of the end-result so it ended up as a good deal for us no matter how some think of Kovalev, in the last years, he was amongst the guys that gave us the greatest show. And he elbowed Tucker....what's not to like.

Like it or not, since 2003, it is NOT about win some, lose some for the Habs. It's more about losing the deals and "some" wins along the way.....Timmins did his best, with his own misses as well, but a whole lot of his good to great picks were shipped out for not a whole lot....not his fault.

Reason why if they HAVE to remain in the same "family" and don't want to make drastic changes if PG has to go, TT remains my choice. He will be able to assess a good pro player and will be able to determine who will be doing a good job as a head scout. Something tells me Jankowski will be the man...remains to be seen if he would do an adequate job.

I don't know if anyone watched the St. Lous gme, but D'Agostini had an unreal first half the game. He was less noticeable down the stretch and didn't manage to score, but he was all over the place.

I did and you are right. Reason why stats doesn't tell the whole story. He doesn't even have a shot on goal. But he's the player I noticed more during that sequence. That's what confidence does to you. People keep underestimating confidence even if they have tons of examples of that every day.

Does anyone know why O'byrne isn't getting minuted in Colorado? He's getting the lowest minutes out of all 6 defensemen. He's averaging 15 minutes a game.

Let just say that if there's something that could turn on in our favor...it's that trade....

Saw O'Byrne a few times lately....seems to me like his confidence is something very fragile and I've seen the Habs O'Byrne more often than not lately. The only problem with trading O'Byrne was that we were trading something we didn't have in our pool. Yet, Bournival has the highest upside. My concern for Bournival and it's not based on actual events....it's how injury prone he is. He's in tremendous shape and yet and had all those injuries, even the ones who made not him miss games, yet, was subpar because of it.
