    It's to soon to say for sure that the team will miss the playoff by a wide margin. But the team don't look good and i think it's safe to say that they will not win the Stanley Cup this year with that line-up.

    So you either start the rebuild because the team is not build the right way or you sell your UFA and go all-in on Tavares in the summer because Tavares will not sign with a rebuilding team. The safest way to success is the rebuild as long as competent hockey people are replacing Bergevin and Molson as president of the team.

    Impossible to take what you say about Bergevin seriously because it's personal with you......

    Starting a rebuild is not going to happen I'm afraid...the path has been set...MB has to own it. And I think it will get even worse before it gets better for us.

    Andrighetto up to 3g and 4pts now. So glad we got to witness Martinsen's excellence and now Baun in exchange for him.

    Looking forward to MB trading Galchenyuk for Cal Clutterbuck.

    Fire this plug of a GM already. It's not even funny anymore. "Class of the league organization" now the laughing stock of the league.

    It seems like Galchenyuk's time is coming to a close. What scares me the most is that Bergevin is in charge of trading him!

    This is my biggest issue. We're at the stage where as a fan you can't really trust that the GM will make a good trade. I remember when Gauthier was scrambling to fix his mistakes and how terrified everyone was that he'd just make things worse (he did).

    The way you defend even his absolute ****tiest of moves makes it seem like it's extremely personal with you.

    Watch them do like Andrighetto and trade Galchenyuk without ever giving him a chance on one of the offensive lines because "he has to deserve it".

    Can we try him with Drouin? Let people with skill play together and you know, maybe we won't be so predictable?

    Exactly. It's the "round peg in the square hole" syndrome that appears to plague Julien much as it did Therrien. Vanek is a great example. Andrighetto to a lesser extent. Now we're seeing an extreme case with Galchenyuk. His regression, whatever the reasons for it, has been nothing less than startling.

    Sure, some of it is "on the players" but when the whole team is in the gutter maybe, just maybe, some blame aimed towards the GM who's in his 6th year and the coaching staff that is 80% leftovers from Therrien is in order here. I still can't understand why Julien didn't bring his own staff in, but that's another discussion entirely..

    When a young player gets traded elsewhere and does well , we can talk about a development problem. - Marc Bergevin

    Andrighetto is going to be one of many , Chucky you're next!

    And i also see that Nail Yakupov also has 5pts in 4 games.....
    He was huge gamble, but i would have take that gamble way ahead of Hemsky or Streit.

    But Andrighetto, since being traded he has 20pts in 23 games.
    So far Bergevin lost that trade big time. It could change, but it looks terribly bad.

    Just letting go of NHLer and not getting NHLer back (or at least great potential) is bad.

    It probably can't change. Martinsen is gone. Baun is an AHLer. Even if Andrighetto drops off the face of the earth (more likely he settles in as a competent middle-6 winger) it was a bad trade.

    Sad state right now, who in their right mind, would trust Bergevin to make a deal??

    Cracked me up to read the Habs are shopping Streit?? Sorry MB, no one wanted him for free...just you...what a joke of a GM he has become in such a short time frame...

    You can sense a dumb trade coming. I really hope he doesn't pull one of those panic trades and ends up hurting us even more down the road.

    He probably is shopping him so that we could give less than a 3rd round IN ADDITION TO Streit for somebody to take him...

    A couple of more losses and that scenario becomes increasingly worrisome. Many fans are becoming wary of what this GM is doing to the long term picture of the franchise.

    If we were 3-1...we'd all be sitting here saying not to get too excited based on our last 2 October's.

    Well we're 1-3, we shouldn't be thinking the sky is falling either.

    Yes I change my opinions based on 4 games. Not a declining product since his second year on the job.

    You talk 4 games, I'm talking about 3 seasons + 4 games.

    Even Rejaune Tremblay is done with MB. He destroyed him today with an article on JDM.
