    you clearly don't deal with a lot of Habs fans and their "24 cups" it seems lol
  2. 6 Years ago today... one of the best comebacks happened

    this video makes me miss so many things from those years... Kovalchuk skating the puck up and blowing by everyone... Zach plays on the boards, Zajac scoring often, the goal song, Zach jumping like a little kid when we'd score, Brodeur etc etc
  3. i think people here sees the Rangers "upcoming disaster" with some blinders. It's the same thing every year.. when they traded for Nash... "they gave up all their depth and prospects bla bla bla"... they havent got a first round pick in 10 straight years""Brassard will never handle #1 C, etc etc we heard them all. Yet gotta give them credits cause they always seem to make it through somehow, that its guys like MSL who just want to be traded there, prospects like Kevin Hayes deciding to sign there, etc etc they always find a way. We got lucky getting Schneider but they could very well pull a trade out of their asses or get an UFA goalie signing there and they wouldnt skip a beat. Same with all the posters here saying this and this team was gonna be in cap hell because of this and that. And boom, new CBA and compliance buyouts. Those teams are laughing lol  Not saying the Rangers WILL recover but to say they are done once this guy is gone or wtv is really more hopeful than stating the truth.

    I dont really want to talk about this again cause anyone will just go "ah there he goes again!" but it's not as much about where we were with Clarkson. It's about not meeting the players to know what he wanted for a new contract AT ALL. Waited after the season to have that talk and once he heard what Clarkson wanted he gave up on him within a few days knowing it was too much for him.  I'd be fine knowing  they met and talked contract before deadline and he figured it was a good gamble to keep him. But Clarkson somehow had good value at that time after a 30 goals season and he was on pace for a good season that year too. We could have got something pretty decent. Really frustrating to see Lou waiting and giving him on him once he heard what he was looking for. That's not smart business and Elias confirmed that thats the way Lou was doing things and that he was frustrated by it too.

    The Drouin situation is really weird. There's all kind of contradicting stories / rumours / reports. here's everything that i've heard, some source coming from around here since he played juniors close and still has friends and people connected to him.  As the whole world know, he asked for a trade. Heard about various teams calling for him. Heard many teams eventually dropped of the race cause Yzerman was asking way too much and wouldn't accept anything. Heard he wouldn't trade within the division or the conference. Heard that some GMs were calling Yzerman telling him NOT to trade him and open a can of worms so that we see rookies asking from trades all around the league. Heard some GMs were calling Drouin's people directly to let them know that they made multiple fair offers but that Yzerman won't take anything. Walsh said that Yzerman told him a trade was close. Yzerman said he never said that. Walsh suggested that Drouin stop playing in the AHL to avoid injury and compromise a trade. Yzerman refused. Then Drouin decided not to play and got suspended without pay. So not all of that stuff is confirmed it's simply nuggets that i read here and there. Some can be taken with a grain of salt. To me it just seems weird. Sure Drouin might just be a diva... but i really don't know you don't think he'd go as far as making a move that would cost him THAT MUCH money for a kid his age. His agent must have told him what would happen and if he still decided not to play and throw all of that money out of the window... maybe there's more to it. Now im thinking of other players from that organization. Martin St-Louis was always a real deal to me until that trade request. To the whole world he was suddenly just a whiny bitch. What if we were wrong and that Yzerman is actually a pain to deal with? I'm not saying that's the case but what if ? Lecavalier was traded... Martin asked for a trade... Drouin asked for a trade... Stamkos.. god knows but it doesnt look like he wants to re-sign and he might just leave the team saying sorry not sorry. Again it might be nothing but it's fair to at least consider that point of view. Maybe in reality for Drouin it's like "good for sticking out for yourself kid", who knows. I certainly don't. He might just be a diva, but i'm still giving him the benefit of the doubt here. Cause imagine being jerked around... and on top of that Cooper is really Deboer'ish the way he handle his young skilled players... we all know how frustrating it can be... sure it's easy to say that he should just play and suck it up. Normally yes, but it's not always as black and white and we don't know everything so we can't really judge. Then once Yzerman said he'd trade him... and if he's really asking too much that it doesn't make sense... well sure he's trying to do what's best for the team but as we saw with Vancouver... it can fvck you over more than anything if you chase away any trade partners, teams move on and you end up losing players like Schneider or Luongo for not much. And at some point as a player/agent it must get really frustrating to just wait and wait knowing that the GM just won't accept anything. At the same time, i totally get that he doesnt want to rush things to much and make sure to get the right deal. Bottom line i don't really know what's happening but i'm not ready to just pain Drouin as a problem kid. There's too much smoke and extreme situations happening.
