They’ll be bad next season.

 

Might as well get good value for vets while freeing up cap space. They’re in build mode you’re right which is why they’ll need draft capital, prospects, and cap space.

They already have all of those things.

Cap space? :lol:

 

They also need more prospects to fill out their pool. They’ve got a couple high end guys but not much else.

With LTIR they have rough $7m in cap space for this seadon.  The cap is expected to rise significantly next season. So yes. They have cap space.  As far as prospects go they have a top 5 prospects pool right now.  They have NHL quality prospects at every position.   They're still lacking superstar talent but moving Savard isn't likely to bring in an asset that will get them that. 

 

Draft capital wise they have 21 picks in the next 2 drafts.

Montreal doesn’t have a superstar talent. So why do they think they are done with a rebuild?  You can’t win a cup without a superstar. 
 

Montreal should be tanking hard for Celebrini. They should also have drafted Michkov. He’s going to be a superstar. Maybe the reason they didn’t draft him is because Price would have forgotten his first name too.

They also have the kind of depth vets with shorter term that GMs seem to love at the TDL they can shed like Perron, Petry, Gostisbehere, Sprong, Fischer, Reimer.  Not terribly positioned for a middle of the road year but also not terribly positioned should they slide again towards the TDL to recoup assets

Habs missed on two high picks in a row. Slafkoski is clearly a bustaroo. The books still out on Reinbacher, but passing on a superstar in Michkov to select a (hopeful) second pairing D man was Benning like stupid. I love Suzuki. He’s a wonderful player. And if the Habs would have been smart they would have made sure the got PLD and drafted Michkov. Then the rebuild would be looking really good. As of now, it’s puck suckingly bad in Habsville.

Yup. Woo will almost certainly get claimed. 

I'd like to see him get a good 10 games or so at the start of the season, playing regularly. Give the guy the opportunity to show whether he has what it takes to play in the NHL, before losing him to waivers.

Michkov seemed pretty set on Philly, can't blame teams for passing on him imo.

Montreal should have drafted David Jiricek. He’s going to be a top pairing stud RHD. Then they should have drafted Michkov this year. Both players will be superstars. 
 

Suzuki is no Pettersson. They need to tank this year for Celebrini. Jiricek, Michkov, Celebrini. All of a sudden you have 3 superstars and your rebuild is complete. At least Benning was able to get his superstars. He even got a stud goalie. Maybe two with Silovs. Montreal doesn’t even have a goalie in their system.

Still spending way too much for a team that could (and should) very well finish bottom 10 again.

 

Top 5 prospect pool? Hardly. They barely have a better pool than the Canucks. I would say we have prospects just as good in every position except maybe center.

Then draft him and trade his rights for a haul. Don’t draft a hopeful top four D man instead. Hughes is terrible at the draft. He was awful with the Rags and it carried over to the Habs. Six big misses with top 10 picks. Might be the worst ever.

Alf hates the Habaroos so is glad they are seriously messing the bed.

Canucks have two superstars, plus a 40-goal scorer and a top goalie.  Montreal doesn't have any of that.  They MAY have a 40-goal scorer in Caufield, but he hasn't even hit 30 goals yet.  We already have 3 players that have hit 30 goals and effectively Boeser was the 4th if you add one more goal.

 

You can't win a cup without superstar talent.  So, you shouldn't be stopping your rebuild until you acquire one or two.  Montreal should be tanking hard for Celebrini.  Not sure why they are maxing out their cap, they should be opening up cap space and weaponizing it for more picks and prospects.  They literally have negative cap space right now and are operating in LTIR, which is exactly what you should not be doing if you are still trying to rebuild...

Habs suck pucks. They are the puck suckers of the east.

Not how that works, especially if there is a specific team he wants to sign with which all signs indicate Philly was that team.

The Philly can wait 7 years. If clubs allow players to dictate who drafts them, then there is no longer any point to the draft. The Habaroos made an egregious mistake in the draft two years in a row. It’s why they are puck suckers.

Exactly.


Isn’t this exactly what Benning was doing? :lol:
