    I still can't believe MB would waste time and resources on this trade. Completely worthless.

    The Habs need a slump buster. Id be happy with Stamkos even if its next year. And Pacioretty can coach if he wants. I dont care who coaches really but get what this team really needs someone with top 3 talent.

    The Habs were +31 or something in goal differential before Gallagher went down.
    I highly doubt Gallagher made up even half of that total. It's an excuse.

    Good teams win under any circumstance, bad teams find excuses.

    No, actually the best thing fans can hope for is the team loses another 5 games and MT gets fired, doesn't make the playoffs.

    Do you know what sells tickets for a sports team? The play. Not the players off ice attitudes. If the team sucks, the bottom line suffers. If John Doe slaps the Pope, people will get over it pretty quickly once the said player produces.

    Example. Todd Bertuzzi.

    Becuase Scrivens doesn't solve the issue of the moron behind the bench with the yellow fingers.

    When you say trading this guy is our main objective... that implies that it needs to be done now. Why does it need to be done at all?
    Upside is never irrelevant when you go out and make a trade. A trade is a balance between gives and gets. If the Oilers get all the upside and we get nothing in return, then why the hell should we make this trade?

    We'll see man but if we wanted help in the net, I'd have expected better than Ben Scrivens. We'll see how it goes I guess.

    This is probably a situation where if Price can't come back soon in 2016, he'll probably require surgery and won't be available at all this season, in which case you can kiss our cup hopes goodbye with/without Khudobin. So the real solution is for Price to come back. If Price can't come back, we're ****ed anyway.

    Crazy hysterical stuff. :popcorn:

    Houle trading Roy was a 'disaster'.

    This move is sideways, at best.

    If Scrivens can stop pucks, its genius. (a big 'if')

    The general premise is we never gave Kassian a shot within our organization.

    Scrivens has yet to play a game.

    I'm not sure Scrivens was supposed to solve any issue besides giving us a better option than Tokarski.

    As long as Byron, Flynn, Mitchell, and DSP are out of the top 9, I don't think even MT can screw things up.

    Pacioretty – Desharnais – Weise
    Fleischmann – Plekanec – Andrighetto
    Eller- Galchenyuk – Carr
    Byron – Mitchell – Flynn

    These aren't the lines I'd choose. But it's much better than the past few games. DD needs to be back on the 3rd line.

    Yeah, but nobody picks a team jersey up off the ice better than Scrivens.....this streak keeps up, he'll be a busy man.

    Anyone who throws their jersey on the ice is a joke.
    I hope they ban anyone who does it for life.

    Get over yourself. The season is not even half over and yet you have proclaimed it a disaster.
    Finishing bottom 3 again and losing Price for the entire campaign would be a disaster. Not even close to that yet. Players need to be accountable. They won plenty of games earlier in the season, and they can do that again. Blaming the coach/GM is low hanging fruit and too easy. The veteran core needs to shape up or ship out, including one very invisible captain. I never thought I'd miss Brian Gionta......
