    The past 3 years have been an embarrassment, how will this be any different? At least we will be playing players that we should try to grow.

    this past year has been an embarrassment. NOT the two before.

    The past 3 years have been an embarrassment. It took a coach firing and Price to go god mode only to get 2 wins in the playoffs. Year before was pretty awful.

    And that would be a problem.

    If you own a business, hire 15 advisors and experts, yet one of your competitor is able to reach pretty much the same result with half the personnel, wouldn't you say there is a big problem?

    The point of saying we have double the amount of scouts wasn't to argue more is better, it was to show how we have a much bigger budget than some teams. I don't care if we use 20 scouts or 5, but there is no reason why we can't take advantage of this budget and spend it on the most qualified scouts.

    It was embarrassing. We were lucky to have had the early start we had, eventually it lead to having to fire Therrien to prevent another collapse. Quite remarkable we still ended at the top of the division, true testament to how weak our division was. Once the POs got rolling...we couldn't buy a goal. Was lame.

    Vejdemo and Evans are probably the two most interesting prospects who'll be coming into Laval for their first season. Gotta hope one of them can surprise.

    Really interested to see how Fleury will do too, especially seeing his progression on the defensive side this year.

    Did he sign yet? As of now, he'd have to be the best NHL prospect if he does.

    And both may be able to play C at the NHL level. Excellent!

    No he hasn't signed yet. I'm expecting them to sign him, though.

    I could easily see Vejdemo beating out DLR. I'm not saying he will, I just wouldn't at all be surprised if he does.

    But I wouldn't mind seeing DLR on the wing. If we're going to go with him, he needs to play. DLR still hasn't reached his potential. having said that, his lack of offense is significant enough that I'd rather see if he can be converted to a dman.

    If he comes to NA this year, I want him in Hamilton, not in Laval.

    Last year we got bounced by a crappy Rangers team in the first round. We couldn't score and were a one line team.

    Yet at the deadline what does our GM do? Trade Andrighetto and picks for Dwight King, Ott, and Martinsen. A total embarrassment.

    And Bergevin topped it off by calling last season a good season at the end of the this year. Horrible.

    So what did he do in the offseason? Let Radulov and Markov walk because they wanted "too much money" and yet Shaw is untouchable and Alzner deserves 4.6 million. clueless.

    It would be wise to send him to Europe for the year. You do not want a good prospect like that going to Laval.

    Why? Bouchard is an excellent coach.

    Lukas Vejdemo finds an extra gear under Bouchard's tutelage, becomes a 1C, and then we get to hear the dumbest ****ing argument of all time: ''just because immediately after Sly's arrival our prospect development improved doesn't mean Sly was a problem!''

    I can't wait.

    It feels so nice to have Bouchard in Laval. Julien can seriously **** off after next year, Ducharme or Bouchard will take over.

    You are aware it's not the same coaching staff in Laval anymore, right? The "don't let the guys in Laval get their hands on him" line is no longer applicable.

    I hope CJ is smart enough to listen to Ducharme in the sense that he can help him change a bit of how he approaches a game plan.

    Nevertheless, I am relieved it's no longer from Lefebvre to Therrien and it'll be from Bouchard to Ducharme/Julien.

    As for Vejdemo, I'm happy he will stay here even if they send him to Laval. We'll have a new coaching staff, but also a lot of new faces in Vejdemo, Evans, Bitten, Alain, Verbeek, and Pezzetta to name a few. Hoping no injuries to halt some of these players' seasons like Addison last year. And speaking of Addison, it'll be like he's a new face also since he didn't play much last year due to missing out nearly the whole season.

    It actually does. It feels like an itch that's finally been scratched to finally have a highly qualified and credentialed coach in charge of our farm team.
