No tanking required. The fact is the team we see before us is not good enough to do much else than win a few games here and there. Hopefully they can be spoilers if they have any games against the leaf or phylers or, hey! - the flightless birds...but I don't expect many more wins. Draft picks are a lottery and Buttman has the system rigged so the Habs will never get get a top pick (unless there really is a credit owing from the BBJ debacle (something that bbb has never really been pushed to explain btw!)...so I say, let the kids play - feed KidA so he gets at least 30, Play GCHyk at centre a bit, and see where this takes us. Go you fucking Habs Go!!
Semi kidding on the tank job.I had a GF who was really into Tank Girl and she had an amazing Cosplay/Halloween get up. She also loved to swear.
I never read Tank Girl. I agree with K3X, they'll win the odd game as the teams that are safely in will take their foot off the gas a bit and rest players here and there. Yes, let kid G(C-in-waiting) get 30.As a side note, I've decided it's time to start purging the old comic collection again. I think I'll put the proceeds aside to save for future traveling. I am going to hang on to a few select favourites though, just for sentimental reasons.
I have a box that contains over 300 MAD/Cracked (and some Vampirella). Might eBay them.
I did the eBay thing years ago, I was quite successful moving out collections of Hulk, Conan, Jonny Quest and some other stuff. It's a pain in the ass though and shipping got really expensive (heavy). My Local Comic Shop is interested and they will treat me right.
Mrs. K3X is an expert Ebayer - only issue is she never sells stuff...only buys!
I liked Tank Girl I want this team to max tank, I want an impact player, please dont win anymore. Dont win next year. Then we can go for the cup.
M your going future traveling, got me beat I just do dimensions.
So Big Mac is called up but won't play tonight...looks like Annttii gets the start
Big Mac, good luck. If he could be a good fourth line center, that would be great. However that almost means JDR is gone. To be honest who really cares about the bottom six.
uh.... big mac = MM?what do you guys think of him? is this his last CHance before our (latest) idiot gm trades him away so he can become another 'what if' #17?
I think he can not NHL skate bye bye
a good list from the Big Smoke.
ok... so if he cant skate, then why did those idiots take him in the 1st round? surely something like this kinda important flaw coulda been spotted earlier?
there was a time when being heavy negated skate skill. Big Mac was a home run play. I am sure and he has said it Timmins was not on board with the pick.
oh thank god
If DBMB cant do playstaion, I can understand, but tankathon, its one click!!
just u and me tn steve...what I dont get/like is why waste a 1st rounder on a home run pick? sure, those actually happen, but a 1st rounder?!? personally... im meh on tanking purely cause drafting means so little. I think theres more value in developing what u have, so I guess im all for the kids running the table!
McM was a late first round pick. There wasn't really a miss I think he was the best gamble. Shea Theodore taken right after him perhaps a better option but MB would have traded him by now.DLR and Leko each taken in the 2nd of that draft and Ghetto in the 3rd.Reway in the 4th and had great promise but his health got the better of himIf we had a system in place to better develop young talent, these players would all be better nhl players by now.
you know I dont know how bad that is with CHud and Mango (LFN) GEM. Maybe we are all stupid and the management actually knows?
fiver, we are going to be the best team that did not make the playoff and got a lously lottery pick.
Well Joey V should be available at 12 or so.
I really think thats our pick. Its Karma, its Dennis Savard all over again , I hope so.
M when you do future traveling you will get tired of winning the persent day lotto. I only need20 mill to conquer this dimension. Crowdfunding opportunity folks. Little Rocket man, I will be Jones Spaceman. Google it fools and it will tell you, google is very very smart but stupid.
hahahahaa! I was just gonna say that I think they DO have a lot of good young talent! auto, DLR, leko, sCHerbak, delorean, fraise, flynn, droolsen, vic, CHarles, audette...
oleg comment more often
Habs fans always over value their team's players. It's a known fact Montreal has one of the weakest prospect pools in the league. Years of rebuild await. They will have Price, KidG and an AHL lineup next season and I'm including Drouin in that bunch. gCHuk will be traded for a #7 defenceman on a bergy whim.
How crazy can Steve be? Do not take it personal because I have done every personality test and they all had the same conclusion. Multi dimensional traveler. If you want to win now, and dont give a fuck about the future, your in the Trump Cabinent.
I forgot to include Weber in the Nhl list. Steve, my comic book cash is going to get me on an Elon Musk test flight...
Mars baby, once you go Red your dead
Thinking of failed 1st round picks got me wondering whatever came of Tintin after the John Scott trade. Turns out he played 7 games for the Yotes and has spent the rest of his time in AHL, currently in the Pens' organization.
steve: not sure if ure jerking me like they do to CHuyk, but my point in listing those guys was yes, I over value our talents, but I did that to patCHes, tintin, komi, lego (before he got brokened)...my grief is that if only the mgmt didnt screw up these kids, the team would always have a steady talent pipe like pgh somehow does yr after yr.
I think my penis is 8 inches. Just what your talking about. If I only knew it was six inchesI would have worked a lot harder to screw.
I am in such a good mood on the threshold of thermonuclear war. Trump may hire me to pump up morale.
I didn't watch but sounds like the Habs played a decent enough game against the Pens. Saw the highlights and Anti was hindered by some deflections and generally poor defence in front of him...but the kids up front did well Leko with another goal...Deslaurier with a rocket and LB with a Patches (who?) type goal from the dirt. Entertaining game with a loss is about all we can hope for right now.
Tiger with a 500 yard drive and a 70 ft putt!
