    He just loves life.

    Haven't seen a dude so happy about scoring since Radulov.

    I guess that wasn't that long ago.

    I hope the trade just works out for both teams. If Domi becomes a legit top 6 center I'll be nothing but thrilled. Still hope to see Chucky tear it up with the Yotes though. Both players had issues with the team they were on and if both of them can turn it around then more power to them. To see how excited Domi gets and how much work he puts in is incredible. WONDERFUL addition.

    Look back at the thread created when Domi first got traded here.The amount of vitriol and hate for him was sad and amusing.I defended the trade from day one.I watched a lot of late night Coyotes games and saw the player that he was and was always impressed.He is an excellent player and never takes a game off much like Gallagher and Byron.Some people even said he was a useless grinder etc etc.He is the furthest thing from a grinder.He is Tahir Domi's son but isn't Tahir Domi, who could actually play hockey pretty good when he wanted to.

    They were awesome lol

    I didn't know Tie was a die hard Habs fan as a kid either, must be surreal for him having his kid play for us.

    The fact that he can play the center position, at least for now, has been huge for us this year. Drouin was horrible at center. So was Pleks at this stage of his career. Adding Domi and KK has been huge.

    Let's just say that Domi is at least as good a center as Galchenyuk was, and likely better.

    I don't get into Domi versus Galchenyuk debates because I like what both players bring (although admittedly Galchneyuk still has to improve his defensive game/turnovers).

    But yes, I don't see Galchneyuk being as effective out of the gate at center as Domi. But if the trade weren't made, Galchenyuk wouldn't have been playing center under Bergevin anyways.

    Going down a slippery slope here...

    Let's bring it back to hockey...

    Might be time to spend some well earned cash on a Domi jersey, that's the kind of impression he's made on me.

    For a few laughs I went back and read thru the thread here made after the Domi Chucky trade. The few of us who liked the trade were slammed pretty good.

    I'm trying to remember another trade that was so universally hated when it happened, that turned to universally loved quicker than this trade.

    My issue with moving Galchenyuk was that last season there was no reason not to have played him at C and I would have liked to have seen him at C given how even CJ said his 200 foot game had improved. As to who we got for him, I was underwhelmed by the 9 goals but I really did not know much about Domi, so was open minded and hopeful.

    Well like basically almost everyone else I am surprised and thrilled at how Domi has played, and that he might be a 2C ? That would be incredible. Now its still early days yet, but better that he is playing this way than not.

    As for his father Tie growing up a die hard Habs fan ? Well I guess I feel a little guilty for having previously referred to him as Tie Dummy, though I generally respected his game.

    I don't know about that...

    I too would have liked it if he got more of a shot at center.

    But to suggest there was no reasons is not accurate iMO.

    I won't bother reading that thread but what I clearly remember is that most people were pissed because what did we get? A WINGER again, against someone who could have been such a centre, and who did more goals in his career. Now myself I stand corrected about this because I can see now that he play centre most effectively. And he can score. But if he was playing on the wing I would still be pissed at the trade.

    Of course Galchenyuk can play at center, but out of any position, that is the one where you are expected to cover the most ice and be the most complete. Sticking your feet near the faceoff circle waiting for someone to feed you the puck for a one-timer is not the definition of an effective top 6 NHL center. Galchenyuk was obviously a talented player but he was lacking in many respects and lazy. Some people originally tried to pin this on Therrien and I guess they didn't know any better than to continue blame it on the next coach after that.

    One of the reason Claude Julien is a highly regarded coach (well, maybe not here, but everywhere else) is precisely because he is known to develop a complete 200 feet game in his players and generally gets intensity out of them. Now any coach can make mistakes. And no coach can get the most of all players. Maybe Galchenyuk was unlucky. Maybe he felt stuck and needed a change of air. But that's on him. He's got a chancefor a fresh start with fresh faces around him and that is usually the last resort for getting a player going. Good for him if that works but it's been pretty obvious to me for a while that it wasn't going to happen here.

    Drouin was a sub optimal experiment attempted due to lack of options. But after years of seeing a guy floating around and spreading his skates, anything was better than sticking to the old recipe. Looking at Drouin this year, he is a better player after that trial by fire but he's much better suited to be a winger. I look at Bergeron and Marchand and figure Max Domi is *exactly* the type of player Julien is going to bring to the next level. That was never going to happen to Galchenyuk here. And it will take a huge wake up call for it to happen anywhere else.

    on paper it looked really bad, it's funny to go back but it doesn't mean much

    I hate Galchenyuk and still slammed that deal pretty hard, should've sticked to my guns
