    I agree that Hudon has shown some good things. A player like him though is not likely to get more opportunities from Julien. CJ has a very limited view of what a good player does, and he's not likely to deviate from that any time soon.

    When Byron and Armia will be back, Shaw will drop back on the 3rd or 4th line but at least it's good to know that if there's injuries or a shake up is needed in-game, he can still do the job. Right now, he has earned a stay on that line....as long as he don't take dumb penalties again.

    Totally agree with this. He's a very under rated player.

    I think Shaw is wising up now. He knows it'll only take one dumb penalty and he'll be in the pressbox once again. Pretty sure costing Mete his first NHL goal is still on his mind. I don't think he'd want to be benched again.

    Hope he keeps this up.

    If Shaw continues to play like this, he won't be demoted
    Byron and Armia don't have a top 6 spot locked in

    I would much prefer Byron on the 3rd line. But then again I just at least hope he gets a shot. Then, let the better player of Armia or Byron play on the 3rd line. It should be earned

    Hey, if Shaw keeping it up he won't be demoted for sure but that's where i have my doubts.
    But ride the wave as long as possible, that's a given.

    Lol 2-3 games and everybody forgot about all his dumb play, his dumb penaltys & his absurd contract. If yall really see Shaw as a locked in top 6 foward theres a serious problem in our team.

    It’s been proven that Shaw draws more penalties then he takes them

    Having said that, I’m liking this new and improved Shaw....limit his yearly fights and stop trying to run over everything. If he can play a Gallagher type game with a little more nastiness, he’ll be very effective for us moving fwd

    Can we stop talking about his contract and concentrate on what he brings to the team ? He's one of the most popular player in the team always give all what he have on the ice I prefered a player that take penalties because of his high intensity then a player that is lazy ! You will never see Sherbak take this kind of penalties ! Drouin and Domi are really producing with Shaw and that's the important thing !

    Shaw playing better with Drouin and Domi. Looks like he did with the Black Hawks. That line certainly makes things happen out there

    He's productive right now, but I think his best form as a hab was right before the concussion on that play with Krug.

    Don't get me wrong though. I'm like this Shaw too for the time being.

    Shaw continues to rack up points with Domi and Drouin.

    He might not remember the price we paid to acquire Shaw. Two high 2nd round picks was ****ing overpayment from day one, without knowing how good Debrincat and say Girard would become. And then you have the contract.

    That being said, Shaw is playing great hockey lately. But as soon as he is back on the 3rd-4th line and taking costly penalties, fans will bring the abovementionned back in the conversation. With good reason. And sadly for Shaw, he will take some heat, but that’s all on MB.

    Let’s keep Shaw in the top 6 in an offensive role. He’s our 2nd best option at RW after Gallagher.

    Andrew Shaw is a way more effective top 6 player than Phil Danault.

    The contract is irrelevant...we are nothing close to the cap, and it’s not standing in the way of us acquiring talent or us having to trade away talent. If and if it ever does, I’ll put the blame on the Alzner contract, that one deserves all the criticism it gets.

    Yes, we lost out on Debrincat, in hindsight, we never should’ve done that deal.

    But this is the risk you take when you trade second round picks for established players.

    It worked out for the habs with the Vanek deal and Petry deal....the picks and prospects we traded away amounted to not much if anything......this time, in regards to Shaw, it did.

    We will not come on the winning end of every trade, this I can guarantee, and this goes for all teams. Look at McPhee, he was regarded as a genius last season, but it was grand larceny when we acquired Tatar, Suzuki and that second for Casperetty.

    If I had to redo it, I’d take Debrincat and Girard for sure, but what the hell, maybe we are better and don’t end up with Kotkaniemi. Then maybe Pacioretty is better with Debrincat and we end not trading him....no Suzuki

    Kotkaniemi/Shaw/Suzuki/Tatar

    Or

    Debrincat/Girard/Pacioretty

    We’re at where we’re at!!

    Shaw has been underrated since he's been here due to the price we paid to get him and the salary he earns, he's a solid player who can play any forward position or in any situation.

    He seems to up his game when promoted. But when he plays 4th line, he looks average. I never did get the criticism towards Shaw. We needed right handed shots and when you add his versatility (LW, C, RW), he fit our needs when we acquired him. Staying healthy has been an issue with him on the Habs.
