    I must have missed Jersey acquiring a #1D.

    They got Mirco Mueller, remember? :sarcasm:


    I honestly think he either stays with the Islanders or comes here to San Jose. The Sharks have a huge amount of cap space, and can offer him a Scrooge McDuck money bin level of deal, if that's what it takes to entice him. They can also pitch him on a team that is a perennial contender, and has a good mix of vets and youth. The biggest thing the Sharks need is a true #1C going forward, since good as Thornton is, he's not going to be that really in the future. Tavares is literally the perfect fit for what the team needs. Depending on how much Tavares' contract ends up being, the Sharks could actually afford to get Tavares, keep Kane, and even bring back Thornton to be the #2 or #3C. I hope it happens. Still think odds are highly in favor of him staying with the Isles, though.

    NOT this again.

    Remember to check how much you are paying these 3 guys because you need a couple more to win a cup

    If they "aren't nothing special" that means they ARE special because of the double negative. I'm surprised you would praise Habs players like that.

    No doubt in my mind that the Canucks offer him 12x7+NMC+front loaded+max bonuses.

    Whether he takes it or not is the question.

    Probably not though.

    Proven core,
    Bergeron, Marchand, Krecji, Chara, Rask, Backes, Krug.

    u25 core, McAvoy, Pasta, Carlo, DeBrusk, Heinen.

    Youth depth, Grzelcyk, Vaakanainen, Bjork, Frederic, Donato, Senyshyn, Zboril, Lauzon, JFK.

    You're welcome to explain how Montreal is anywhere close to Boston.

    Montreal has 0 franchise players(u25), 0 elite prospects, Bergevin has made a mess of things yet none of these are true somehow.

    I apologize for my mistake.

    I'd say Montreal. Only way I can see Bergs selling Molson on keeping his job. Bergs and his agent are best friends, sounds like there is a chance there. Can't see him staying on Long Island after they never added at deadline despite being in playoff race at time. Not the kind of message you want to send to your star free agent.

    As a neutral fan, Boston's group is pretty easily better. Even with Tavares.

    He's struggling in the AHL. Still getting some wins on a horrible team but his GAA and S% is really bad. He might still be in the ECHL next year if Niemi stick around. He's probably available for trade but no one is interested.

    Yeah that's not a top contender.


    Not even close to Bostons group, not even close.

    Boston has +ppg player, ppg players, the best shutdown C in the league and McAvoy/Chara/Krug on defense, Rask in net, and ton of quality depth on the youth group.

    Yes, surely the Bruins hate their team and wish they could have missed the playoffs by a mile with Bergevin at the helm to right the ship. You nailed it.

    Yeah, you’re not really a good evaluator of talent or the parity of the league

    Montreal has 4 guys capable of putting up 30 goals. The best goaltender in the best **** down defenseman in the league who also scores about 20 goals every year and a plethora of talented young defence and forwards on the cusp of breaking out.

    Your bias and hate for the habs is so obvious, just stop man. It’s kinda sad tbh

    Oh man, I'm amazed Bergevin still has defenders left.
    If you think Montreal is anywhere close to Boston I'm speechless.

    Feeling Montreal and not just because I’m a Habs fan. I think there is a want from both sides potentially there.

    Bergevin will give him max years for security and also give him a blank cheque tell him to fill it out with his number.

    Plays first line center which the Habs have needed like forever. Plus Tavares wants to be the go to guy in the team he goes to IMO. He is captain material in case Pacioretty is dealt his off-season.

    Potential playing with:

    Drouin/Pacioretty Tavares Gallagher

    A lot of promise for a line like that. Not saying Weber and Price would sway him to go play there but it is nice knowing they have a top 15 dman and top 5 goalie in the league.

    If they were to win the lottery we’re talking a huge boost of potential interest and re-tool as well.

    Drouin Tavares Gallagher
    Pacioretty Galchenyuk Scherbak
    Byron Danault Shaw
    Lehkonen Deslauriers Hudon

    Dahlin Weber
    Reilly Petry
    Alzner Mete
    Juulsen

    Price
    Lindgren

    That’s potentially solid but there is still other free agents that could be signed to fill out better depth. I do like the adding of youth in the backend.

    Sexy lol. But I doubt we win the draft. Still. So many great young puckmovers available. We can draft one to play with Weber or draft a pacioretty replacement and trade him for a dman. Exciting for sure. With all that cap space you know something big is coming in. Hope it’s johnny T

    Who in their right mind would want to go to that tire fire in Montreal?

    Montreal is not a tire fire. Its a team with a solid core that just did an admiral tank job and is now in position to add to that core with: a log jam of talent at left wing enabling a potential hockey trade, 15-20m in cap space to sign ufa's, and a 50% shot at drafting top 3 plus 4 more top 60 picks.

    I know it's fun for you to feed into habs fans disdain for the current management but your statement has no basis at all.
    Montreal has an extremely high quality of life and a uniquely hockey-centric culture. There is no reason any ufa wouldn't want to sign here unless they're some wussy scared of the limelight type, which i do not believe Tavares is.

    50% odds at drafting top 3??

    More like 70+% odds of drafting 4-7.

    Definitely not NJ. Same deal as the isles. Great forwards no defense or goaltending. If that’s what he wanted he would just stay
