    I don't think anyone accused the city of being Russian phobic just that it's quite obvious that Therrien is a bigoted POS.

    As far as the discussion on upsides go. Consider the fact we are gonna run out Ben ****ing Chiarot in our top four and if Romanov and Brook are capable of developing into top four guys, that will be a huge win since we have been stuck signing garbage for too long and too much.

    Moving on, the point here is that We are a small team and having bigger defensemen will be beneficial to our roster.

    I agree that with Romanov you have to throw the stats out the window, or at least take them with a huge grain of salt. And I didn't see Sergachev in the OHL at 17 so I can't really say, I did see him at 18 and early on I thought he was struggling and looked lazy, disinterested as he was perhaps sulking about being sent down.

    That said I find some around here have been dismissing his offensive skills since the trade when he clearly has produced very well in the NHL at a young age. Sergachev at 19 had double the points that Mete has in 120 games, not fair to compare them as we all know if you flip them that stat would look different but I'd be willing to bet that while fans would be on Sergachev, he would have a good bit more then 20 career points in 120 games played. The problem of course would be his D as you would likely have to put him with Weber and shelter him as much as possible.

    Romanov hopefully has anything close to Sergachev's offensive skills we are in business, as he clearly is better defensively, higher IQ, harder worker, better physical game. What Romanov can turn into is a huge wild card for the Habs future imo, as having him turn into a very solid 2nd pairing D would be great but if he can be better then that then that would be massive since it's a major hole that needs to be filled and one that's very difficult to fill

    What’s Brooks doing? I hope they can share these experiences and develop into our 1-2!

    Speaking of Romanov, CSKA has another preseason game today. We'll see if Romanov plays or is left to rest.

    Just checked the CSKA line-up for today's preseason game. It doesn't look like Romanov is in the line-up.
