    Serg has looked solid in his limited role in the playoffs. Got alot of time with all those PP we had :laugh:

    Wonder if Drouin likes it in Montreal.....? (With the way Point has developed we don't miss Drouin in our lineup)

    Serg is starting to push again, the way he did early in the year. Carrying the puck a lot, beating guys one-on-one.

    I'm just hoping he snipes 4 or 5 playoff goals in this next series so we get to watch HF Boards melt down due to a Habs infection.

    I like how they're bringing him in to the playoffs slowly, but giving him more time as he gets comfortable. They're putting him in a position to succeed and that's exactly what a young d-man needs.

    Soooo glad we have him!!

    So in today's "Down Goes Brown" column over at Sportsnet, under the "Maximum Chaos" draft lottery selection, I saw a subtle nudge to the Sergechev deal....

    2. Montreal Canadiens - Marc Bergevin with a franchise-quality young defenceman? What could go wrong?

    Down Goes Brown: 2018 NHL Draft Lottery power rankings - Sportsnet.ca

    Just way too damned funny. :laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh:

    Man I feel bad for Bergevin. Sergachev is advancing like a boss, so is Subban, who is another Norris candidate.

    Meanwhile, Drouin is boo-hooing in his beer thanks to a poor stat line somewhere on Rue Crescent and Weber looks like C3-PO when Chewbacca was carrying him on his back.

    Talk about a guy who should do the decent thing and resign before he causes the franchise more damage.

    It will be a sad day and one of the darkest moments in Lightning franchise history when Marc Bergevin resigns or is fired.

    I'm not being mean or trolling when I say this, but I honestly think Bergevin still has a job because he speaks French and is a snazzy dresser who "looks the part" in a metro city like Montreal. Either that or he has some compromising tapes. I can't think of any legitimate reasons for him still managing a storied franchise like the Montreal Canadiens. He traded Subban and Sergachev. Signed Price to a 7,021 year deal. Didn't insulate his captain, when he knew (or should have known) he wasn't prepared to handle the savage Montreal media, and he enabled his coaching staff to toy around with Alex Galchenyuk to the point where he doesn't know right from left or if he's coming or going.

    I haven't said this in at least a week, but thank you once again Habs. At least you got Drouin who can speak both languages and sulk in both languages.

    We'll see if we have another disgruntled young'un for you again if you draft anybody worth trading for.

    P.S. - Thanks once again for Serge. He's going to be a D1 much sooner than we thought.

    Loved seeing Serge going at it with Chara after the whistle at one point in Game 5. Kid's got some nerve!

    His composure during the Playoffs has been amazing. On the day Drouin was dealt, I was very upset. He was one of our only consistent players who could gain the blueline on the PP and control the puck, and he really stepped up during the Pens series the year prior. But with Point's emergence, Drouin's absence is not felt in the slightest. Serg's composure with the puck is world class. On top of his strong shot and skating abilities, his strength at 19 is what has surprised me perhaps the most - he seems to be fearless, too. Serg is going to be a horse for us for many years to come.

    I was upset for about 24 hours after the trade. I started reading blurbs about Serg's skillset and potential and quickly realized that this type of defensive talent trumps a small forward every day. Drouin's lack of maturity really hindered his development and then Montreal's idiotic decision to try him at center has probably sealed his fate of ever becoming an elite player.

    Serg gets to learn from veterans like Hedman-Stralman-McDonough and is a track to be a top 5 defenseman in the entire league in a few years!

    After watching him for this season, including the playoffs, it is safe to say that we won the trade by a wide margin. Sure, Drouin may one day be a 70 point winger if the stars align. But he likely will continue to be a 50-60 point defensively irresponsible center who is merely a PP specialist.

    At this point, it is clear that Serg’s FLOOR is extremely high. I think he already is a 3/4 D by the league’s standards and he has a very reachable 1D ceiling given his rare combination of skills. He may not become Chris Pronger. But Serg looks to be a world class puck moving D who likely will one of the best in that specific category in a few years, while still being extremely above average on the back end.

    Deploying Hedman, Serg and Foote will be a tremendous D core for years to come.
