So much this; Gallagher's a hard worker, he's not a 30 goal, 70+ point player though...
I would love an announcement come across the board.
Headlines would read.M.B and M.T have both been released form the Habs.
That would be my cup for this season.
The loss of Gallagher destroyed any semblance of balance of our low scoring forward group. He not only provided balance but was an inspiration as well. Galchenyuk cannot play on 2 lines nor can Pacioretty or Plekanec. The forward group as constructed will never win a cup.
The forward group as constructed is far better than 1-11.
The forward group as deployed however...
And who would bet Pacioretty, Plekanec and Subban would disappear into a scoring black hole at same time??
The minute Desharnais and Weise were on the top PP unit is the time it all went downhill (I don't actually know if this is the exact time, just makes me angry) I could have bet on it!
With the Galchenyuk,Carr, Eller line nobody can balance the lines . Go ahead , without Gallagher you can put xxxs whereever you want the forward group sucks.
The best we can hope for as fans with this move is that for some reason Scrivens acts as some sort of stabilizer that helps get the vets of this teams heads out of their *****!
And that's the best we can hope for. Yeesh.
3 top 50 scorers from last year Pacioretty,Plekanec and Subban (the $20 million trio) have fallen into a black hole. Hold them accountable.
Wish we had a like button. Bang on. I thought MB would be a breath of fresh air. He is right up there with Gainey and Gauthier who at least drafted Price and got us Galchenyuk. His love for MT, his extension for DD and MT, extension for Plecanec for two years at $12 million, reclaimation projects of Briere, Paranteau, Semin, Kassian and now Scrivens are laughable for a once proud franchise.
It happened...and was very bad press for the Habs brand.
No choice but to move on ...
Well losing Gallagher hurts but that should technically only affect the first line but the coach rather changes every other lines to compensate the loss of Gallagher. MT could have just put Carr or Andrighetto on the first line and keep the 2nd and third line intact.
And I bet if Subban could start scoring again it would it would be a great help. Getting scoring from back end.
They did not fall into a black hole, they just crawled under a rock until MT is gone.
he was on pace for 33G, 70pts though
His point is, Kassian is getting ridiculous treatment in contrast to other players doing similar things. Because NO other NHL player has ever partied, with girls, drinking, ever.
For anyone that doesn't know, that Patty Kane in Vancouver after a game, in a limo and some local girls. This is 3am after the bar. BAN HIM FROM THE NHL! ZOMG!
If you think they quit on a coach you are 100% wrong. Its been done before sort of but the players were banned for life. Its called throwing games.
The fact you think the TEAM has played well concerns me.
1 line has played decent.
1 line doesn't not make a team.
The "puck luck" crap, ya I'm done here.
And DD was on pace for 82... How's that pace now? Sub-40? That's right.
What? So goalie sucks on a bad team, don't look at that. Goalie plays well for 19 games on a good team, LOOK HERE HE'S GREAT!
You don't see a problem here?
Yeah, he was on fire, but I doubt he would've kept that up for the whole season.
Ok, I am pissed off. Seriously pissed off. This is a ****ing joke... trade a kid with a ton of potential because he has a problem for a total ****ing bum that won't solve jack **** - goaltending is not this teams problem anyway, its scoring... and we just dumped a kid that might have helped fix that for a ****** ****ing AHL back-up goaltender with zero upside? I'd done with this team.
2-6-1 in the AHL!
Partying wth booze is completely different from dependency on booze.
You don't throw a guy into rehab twice because you caught him having a beer after a game.
Yet this trade increased the cap...
