Bergevin never tendered an offer after finding out what Hall was looking for so yes it's on him but we have no clue what he asked for from Montreal.

I think there a decent chance that the Habs are better than the Leafs this year.

Where.

Hyman-Matthews-Nylander ----- Gallagher-Danault-Tatar
Mikheyev-Tavares-Marner ------- Toffoli-Suzuki-Drouin
Vesey-Kerfoot-Simmonds ---- Armia-Kotkaniemi-Anderson
Engvall-Boyd-Spezza -------------- Lehkonen-Weal-Byron
(Robertson) -------------------------------- (Caulfield)

Rielly-Brodie -------- Chiarot-Weber
Muzzin-Holl -------- Edmundson-Petry
Dermott-Bogosian - Kulak-Mete
(Sandin/Lehtonen) - (Romanov)

Anderson ----- Price
Campbell ------ Allen
Dell

They may have a better third line and backup goalie. But worse in every other area. Maybe that makes them better.

Apples and Oranges. Habs will be thrilled to make the playoffs. Leafs will be disappointed if they don’t win the Cup.

More or less correct yeah.

It's time for the Leafs to enter legit contender status. All of the pieces are there (other than in net...but whatev). Maybe not win a cup, but play in the playoffs like a group that is a legitimate threat for one. Win a couple of rounds minimum after a 105-110+ point regular season.

The Habs should just be pleased with getting in the playoffs.

You really suck at Habs lineups you know that? Weal? Caufield? LOL?

Kulak and Mete won't be the bottom pair either.

And they will be. That's their only goal regardless of what Bergy pushes. The mandate is to get back in the playoffs.

Hall didn't sign there = Hall didn't want to sign there
I think if the exact $8M offer was made by Bergy, Hall goes to Buffalo anyway. I get that covid is a big thing but proximity to Toronto is favorable to him. Not a hard concept to grasp.

Habs want him to play in Europe if he doesn't play for Wisconsin this year.

He's not ready for the NHL yet.

Likely opening day lineup

Tatar-Danault-Gallagher
Drouin-Suzuki-Anderson
Lehkonen-Kotkaniemi-Toffoli
Byron-Evans-Armia
Weal

Chiarot-Weber
Edmundson-Petry
Kulak/Mete-Romanov
Kulak or Mete

Price
Allen

I believe it will be Mete over Kulak early but that could change. They will also move Romanov to Petry's pair if Edmunson bombs. Romanov is LHD but plays the right side mostly and is very capable on the left as well.
