      Forum-specific Rules   07/11/2017

      These are board specific rules for the Trades and Rumors forum designed to provide organization and a better experience for everyone. Please review these rules before posting new threads. 
        THREAD ETIQUETTE   1. Please search for an existing thread before posting. This forum can be very fast moving, so it's understandable if redundant threads are inadvertently posted. In such a case, please use the report feature to request removal of redundant threads.    2. Provide a clearly identifiable topic title so that users can readily understand the content. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate.   3. All trades, signings, rumors and other news MUST include a linkable source. Simply posting the name of the source is not enough. Effort should also be made to copy and paste the full article, or at the very least the relevant portion of text from the source to the first post of the thread. Moderators may remove low-quality threads in favour of high-quality threads. 

      Affixed to the front of your title should be a label that identifies the type of transaction that is taking place. For all trades use [TRADE]. For all signings use [SIGNING]. For all waiver-wire transactions use [WAIVERS]. For all rumours use [RUMOUR].
      For articles or news items that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriate label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].   4. When the status of a thread changes a new thread can be created. The new thread should reflect the change and help focus the discussion on current events. e.g. Someone may create a new thread when a rumor becomes a trades. The old thread will be locked by the moderating team.    5. Do not misrepresent the contents of your thread or post false trades or rumors. Trolling will result in a permanent suspension. 

      SOURCES   The following source types are considered INVALID. Any links to posts or threads on other message boards Any links to personal blogs Any news heard on the radio that does not have a link to an audio vault or podcast Any news seen on television that does not have a link to online video Any news spread by word of mouth
      Additionally, certain sources may be be blacklisted due to poor credentials, clear traffic-mongering etc. Blacklisted sources will be posted here. 
      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM the Administrator or Moderators if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this forum.

not going to offer extension

intend to trade asap....

 

why undermine one's leverage by showing your hand like this?

 

 

It honestly seems like he thinks this is a way to drive demand and drive the price up. One more reason he is the worst GM in the NHL.

I’m not. Subscriber of the athletic. But from the context of the tweets it sounded like it was an Eklund style “source”.  Not an official statement from the Montreal organization.  Either way, the tire fire continues on unchecked.

maybe part of the problem is the lack of incisiveness of some of these sources, projected onto GMs.

Bergevin can make you wonder but not quite to the point where I can believe he's revealing both a lack of intent to re-sign and a desperation to trade asap - at the same time.

 

that said, I like the Armia deal.  So if it were just a queston of his last move, a bit of credit - but overall.....still frightening what he might do with Pacioretty whether he's rushed or not haha.

The Montreal Tire Fires? Part of me thinks that should be a name for Ottawa because of their Canadian Tire sponsorship. Also the Flames are technically a fire team. Which one works better?! Lol. Can anybody make a logo?

Bergevin does fine on smaller deals for the most part.  He cashed in on Weise to Chicago for Danault and 2018 2nd.  Did well with the Armia deal.  Picking up Byron off waivers.  Signing Radulov (we won’t talk about the subsequent mess). Benn for Pateryn (a player that HAD to be moved because of his wife’s racist rants on Twitter), I even like the organizational moves he’s made this summer (replacing Laval’s coaching staff,Burrows adding Ducharme, Richardson to the Habs coaching staff.  

 

Its the big trades, his tendency to side with the crappy French coach over a young star player, and his insistence on keeping said crappy French coaches where he REALLY drops the ball

Actually there has been zero indication that Bergevin is on the hot seat (unfortunately)

I don't get the reasoning for Bergeven to come out and say this publically. He just looks desperate and if no good offers come in he has backed himself into a corner. Not sure what the French word is for tool. But Bergeven = Le Tool.

Someone is pissed you took away his title that he earned the right way:

I agree with all of this...EXCEPT for the fact that he's siding with the crappy French coach. I kind of think this was the game plan for the Habs and they lived and are currently dying by that game plan. They wanna be tougher. Not just defensively, but period. Both of the last coach hires were conducive to this train of thought. Both didn't like Galchenyuk. They traded PK, which has not worked out well for them at all with all of Weber's injuries. The fact he wasn't fired for this is still boggling my mind as he is continuing to make moves. They made the move for Drouin, which on the surface looks like a change in philosophy, but TB kept him down for so long that he became reliable enough on the defensive side of the puck. 

 

All in all, it just seems like a GM philosophy and anyone who is going to play soft is out. Might be why Patch is on his way out. Their captain is not embodying what they want for the culture they are looking for. Nevermind understanding that what they are looking for could actually be the wrong thing.

Of course the real question is will Edler or Tanev waive their NTC's and be traded before their contracts expire?

I wonder if Patches has a conference preference. I could see SJ or ANA going after him. I know the LAK were close, but their addition of Kovy kinda kills this.

It was rumoured that he was interested in going to Florida
