    When he joined in, McCarron himself said that he wanted to be the next Lucic. He tried to play like that...and looked stupid. Then, Bergevin and Co wanted their big centerman and thought it made sense. Lefebvre didn't think that. Bergevin wanted it. He was dumb for doing so. McCarron can't even process a game on the wings, can't imagine he can do it at center. Tinordi? Was seen as this shutdown d-man type of guy with some fighting abilities. Yes, they surely exploit that trait too much....but I doubt the kid wanted no part of it. BUt he was terrible at it. But in none of those cases were those guys drafted to be top 6 or top 2 on D. Scherbak was picked up for his top 6 abilities.....but they forgot to watch if he knew how to play hockey and not just be the hockey version of Globetrotters. I have absolutely NO idea what Lefebvre could have done more with Scherbak. Actually, last time he played with Lefebvre, he was PPG and more.

    I totally agree that you do not put a guy on a 3rd line in the AHL 'cause you have already determined that his ceiling is the 3rd line in the NHL. That's not how it works....and Lefebvre did that for quite a few players......but again....to a point to COMPLETELY destroy their future and transform them from potential superstars to beer league players?

    But in the end, being able to draft 3rd and 4th liners are not what makes a team great. Yeah, they could at least be that.....but it STILL wouldn't be enough. The ony reason why people in here thinks Timmins is a god is because he drafted Price, McDonagh, Pacioretty and Subban. Those guys are stars. Lately, we bring up Gallagher, Galchenyuk and Sergachev. WE now often are talking about Fleury, Brook, Poehling....none of those guys are seen, as of today as fillers.

    Right now, there's nothing from Hudon's development that indicates he shouldn't be a NHL regular. Lefebvre did what he could with them. So...why can't he take that extra step? Maybe because...he's just not good enough? Thing change quite fast....not that long ago, people were saying that they only success story was a guy that wasn't developed by Lefebvre in Lehkonen.....well...thank god he just started scoring 'cause it again looked like a really bad season for him. In the meantime....Pateryn would look incredible in our lineup. Especially compared to what we have.

    I was told not that long ago that it wasn't Timmins fault for drafting Tinordi and McCarron has he was caught off guard 'cause the league has started changing. Which for me is pure bogus, other teams had catch that up sooner and adapted but......To the question....how come he looked better from 03-07 and not after....isn't it possible that he, himself, had trouble adjusting to the new game? If the guy picks up Tinordi and McCarron 'cause we were supposed to still be in the tough era, maybe that was his problem post 2007? Not recognizing the new era?

    There were no superstars in that group to begin with but like you mentioned earlier it's up to someone in the organization to determine if there is a role for the player in the imminent future and if not to get something for them. DLR is actually a great example of keeping a redundant asset if we weren't going to use him at center. e.g. If Danault made Eller dispensable what did it make DLR who was unable to take Eller's place under Therrien?

    That and the fact TT had some precedence of success. Lefebvre had nothing to go on. It was normal to point the finger towards development. It did buy TT way more time.

    Thank you @Bloumeister I am glad you took the time to do such great work and portray such a supreme leader. I think that this image should be stickied. I cannot stop looking at it, I am starting to believe, can't fight it, my attitude is even changing. What have you done?????????

    That's not just a gal, that's Jean Harlow.:nod: I knew there was a picture of her similar to the toast, I just had to Google for it. Amazing isn't it? The mind can really play tricks on you.

    No one..

    Negativity infringes my right to a safe, harassment free internet space on this forum. :tmi:
    Just accept that Marc is amazing and that those other 6 years were fake news or some conspiracy to make Marc look foolish. He's the real deal. Best GM of 2018

    The drive for 25 is alive friend :nod:
    we are just one piece away from contending for a cup... anything can happen in the play offs. Marc said it so it must be true.

    GO HABS GO!!!:toothless:towel:

    I had looked up "image of the virgin mary" Lots to choose from, but a grill cheese that is half eaten is pretty funny.
