    I can agree on this, although, I think you would be surprised when it comes to Thompson especially.
    He actually isn't your typical "nasty big guy"....but he DOES go about his business in such a casual "just another day at the office" manner, that it may SEEM like he is timid out there....until he knocks someone's jock strap clear into the 4th row!

    Guy is so big and strong (and yes, especially on the puck), that I sometimes wonder if he knows his own strength when he puts checks into people.

    The Habs should take LA to court for that deal as it constitutes fraud.

    Everytime they put King on the top line with Kopitar I would die a little inside. You just don't punish your top center like that.

    Bergevin has no vision or plan.........alot of this stuff is done, like throwing crap at the wall. Some of it now and then sticks...he is a GM in way over his head. He has openly admitted, he does not believe in windows of opportunity, and quite often admits, there is no plan B..............he swings and misses alot.

    Domi, Tatar, Armia, Reilly are his last trades before these. He keeps hitting it out of the park recently.

    Total BS, yeah no plan - lol. Domi & Tatar were home runs. PK for Weber a wash. MB's problem was not recognizing earlier that this team was all smoke and mirrors (Price) and should have been dismantled many years ago. Its fair to bash him when he makes a mistake but not to give credit when makes a great deal is BS

    Some nice one's recently, but his body of work over 7 yrs is nothing to rave about. As I said, throw enough at the wall, and now and then, some will stick. I hope he can keep it up, but it's gonna take more than one nice summer to erase 6 yrs of being a clown.

    How many thought in 2013-14 they were a contender - practically everyone on this board. 20/20 says the team should have been dismantled then.

    Montreal MB moves since the summer have been good and this one may continue the ball rolling in that direction. This is a quiet maybe not so quietly good move. We will see.

    I suggested he got lucky with Tatar and Domi because they were doing nothing before they came to MTL. They were easily traded away by their respective clubs. They found their game here and MB passes like a genius now. What if they didn't find their game?

    Oh yeah, what a catastrophe trading a fourth rounder for Dwight King was.

    Definitely worthy of nightmares.

    Hard to believe the team has managed to recover as well as it has from that "disaster."

    I realy that move. Cant tell much about his years in LA, but was realy a game changer in Tampa. With Plekanec out, we never find a replacement for important face-off. Here he is!

    Officially the Habs slowest player now. Barely and NHLer and will not contribute much. Didnt cost much though.

    Not sure why everyone is complaining so much. Kings fans have been complaining about Thompson because he was playing on the second line and the second-unit powerplay over guys like Kovalchuk and some of the younger guys, but let’s not pretend like Thompson is worthless. He’s a solid veteran that can play on the third or fourth line. Good defensively. A fourth and fifth round pick is basically nothing, and Thompson isn’t signed after this year.

    I can’t believe this many people are upset about this trade. He’s a guy that can help Montreal this season, and they got him for basically nothing.

    Thats funny. He's a scrapper, not a skill guy. Still very slow, no matter how hard you argue the point. He won't battle or do better than our entire 4th line. He will not battle harder than Hyman, Brown, or Kadri for that matter. The league has gone away from fighting and is a skill/speed game. The NT's of this game are a dying breed. Even our smallest player Ennis battles harder than him. Hell, I'd argue Marner battles harder than him.

    Deal with it.

    He'll bounce Marner around for a joke. Both Nylander and now Matthews are perimeter players you know shy away from contact. Your team is full of powderpuffs and will get rolled in the playoffs.
