    Around The League: 2021

    I meant it was a bone headed move if they didn't look at Hughes closely, not because they didn't draft him (I wanted Zadina after all) I would have liked to think they had the foresight to evaluate all of the top 4-5 fairly before settling on Kotkaniemi. I, on the other hand, had really only...

    Given the choice of the four, Habs would have drafted Boudreau.

    Its moves like that and signing Edmundston that continually makes me me wonder just how bright our brass is.Even when they make good moves, some boneup manoeuver will get thrown in there. Sure you lose some but the intent is sound. But these type of moves can be smelled a mile away.

    Yes, very much so in style to Bobby Smith. His offensive game trails off more than Smith's in the zone of course, but we'll see...unlikely he'll ever produce Smith-like numbers but it was a different time.

    Unfortunately, there doesnt appear to be another top tier prospect.

    Good effort,and nice we got a deserved point. Sometimes talent just wins out, as on the last sequence. 3 on 3 is garbage pond hockey.

    Very impressed after watching a period of Romanov on offense. Guy Lapointe passes come to mind.... how long has it been

    World Juniors 2021

    I still think we should have traded down with multiple picks to pick up Kaliyev (or Lavoie for that matter) when they were still available into the second round in 2019. Both had issues that took them out of the first round but were intriguing. The kind you take a chance on at that point,instead...

    I thought you meant it would be time to bring Matthew Darche back as a player. Last time we did that he 33 years old and had played about 100 NHL games. He then lasted three years in Montreal (to his credit for sure). ......if things get that rough this year it will surely mean the end of...

    Les Habitants Prospects Thread

    We got Michael Ryder in the seventh round I believe. Now that was value, despite his flaws. Hoping for a little more from Caulfield, given his draft position but the risk is there he won't be as good. Back in those days a rough skating kid from Bonavista., NL with one year of junior didn't...

    Its funny. The also ran countries probably develop more NHL players than they ever did, yet the tournament seems to have gotten even more lopsided the past few years. There was a time when you could count on some of those countries throwing an upset, or at least keeping the games close against...
