De toute évidence, ce dimanche s’achève et il n’y aura pas d’annonces d’ici la fin de la journée…Mais bon, que vous voulez-vous, je rapporte ce qu’on me dit même quand des fois, j’ai moi-même mes propres doutes

Ceci dit, pour me faire pardonner, je vais non seulement re-confirmer qu’il y aura des annonces dans les prochains jours et qu’il s’agira bel et bien d’annonces toutes Québécoises, je vais aussi m’avancer en affirmant que l’une d’elle devrait être Joël Bouchard dans un rôle qui pourrait ressembler à adjoint ou assistant au directeur général.

Pour l’autre malheureusement, je n’ai toujours pas de confirmation de quoi que ce soit, on y reviendra au besoin !

Every year the NHL is moving more and more to a game where speed and skill is the way to win. Thats why i'm not afraid of Trocheck's size.

Add to that the fact that its only a matter of time before even more new rules come in to deal with things like head shots (which will lead to even less hitting in the game) and you have to see that change coming and go for it.

Speed, Skill.... thats the way to go with this team. Both at Centre and at Left Defence. An infusion of both is drastically needed.

And the more the game goes to speed and skill, all the more reason we should stay away from the Ketchups of the world.

Big, fast and skilled will always beat small, fast and skilled. Sure smaller players are triving, but if you surround them with nothing but small players, then your team becomes easy to counter. It's not like Tkachuk is a bruiser with no hands, he's actually very skilled. Probably more of a finesse player than people are willing to admit, and he skates pretty well. It takes balance on a good team, and we don't have that right now. Even our bigger top fwds like Galchenyuk and Pacs are soft as hell. I saw people on boredz actually compare us picking Tkachuk to picking McCarron, and now you brought up McCarron when Artie brought up the point about size which completely misses the point to a level where my head started hurting.

:rudy:

We need to build a well balanced team in terms of size (always holding skill to a high standard) or we'll end up second best on the ice when it matters because the best teams have that up front as well as in the back. That said, I wouldn't be against the Trotchek vs Pacs trade, but you better build a proper team than can sustain pressure and play heavy when it needs to and a team of under 6'ers don't give you that.

He needs to improve his explosiveness and his first step, but I consider him a pretty good skater. He's much more fluid than Zadina, and I'd even say he's faster at top speed.

Listening to Cassidy's post game presser, he comments on how it became harder for his forwards to penetrate into better scoring areas due to the bigger TB defence.

Trocheck is a very good player. The issue here is not his skill set, it's team make up and style of play.

What Gainey learned the hard way is that no matter how much the NHL says it wants to change, it never really does. So do we really want to film Sous Six Part Deux

When your complaints about size, and getting to the front of the net, include players like Brendan Gallagher, and Paul Byron... i have a hard time seeing the size argument.

Are they short? sure.

Has either player ever had a hard time getting to the front of the net and getting prime scoring chances against big defenders? no.

Fuck are you dense....

Are you going to compare Gallagher and Byron to Wheeler, Laine, Schief, Connors, Statsny, Ehlers....all over 6'0"? Talent and size...

Winnipeg has 9 players with talent in their top 9. Heck they have Roslovic waiting in the wings too.

Its not the size, its the talent.

If you find me a guy who is over six foot and skates like Ehlers or whoever, I'm not turning that down.

This team needs talent... and I'm not passing over a 5'11 guy in Trocheck who put up 70 points this year cause he's an inch too short. That's just dumb. Would you pass on 5'11 Sidney Crosby too? How far does it go that your number 1 C has to be over 6'0"

Also why the fuck we care about Winnipeg, we play them twice a year, and would only face them in the playoffs if we both made the cup final.

Don't build your team to beat one opponent, build your team to beat multiple opponents. Look at Tampa's forward group, Point, Johnson, Gourde are all midgets. Kucherov and Callahan are sous-six too. Not one forward on their roster is over 6'1". Their team is built on speed and skill.

is the 40 goal 70 point Laine better than 30 goal 50 point gallagher... sure... but its not size that is the reason why.

You want to turn down a Patch for Trocheck offer cause he's not big enough. That makes no sense to me, the guy has the talent to be a 70 point centre. Who cares about height.

Get a team where Gallagher and Byron are 2nd and 3rd liners (instead of your top 2 goal scorers last season), and they can fit despite their height.

Of course they aren't Wheeler and Laine and Schieffele, but the difference isn't the height. The difference is the talent.

Get me three 70 point + forwards, and i don't care what height they are.

Do you think Tampa cares that they have a bunch of sous-six guys? No cause those guys put up points.

The Habs issue isn't about lack of size, its a lack of offensive talent, specifically at Centre, and Left defence.

We are not arguing size vs. talent dumbass

We are saying Size AND talent is better that midget talent.

Let's see how Tampa fares here on in.....

On this team - yes you take Trocheck - no one would argue differently but to say the new NHL is all talent independently of size is a crock of shit. Flavor of the day for the keyboard pundits and GM's.

Fuck off.

Now who is arguing things i never said. Obviously if you have a 6'2 guy and a 5'8 guy with the same talent you choose the size.

The point is thatis rarely... if ever... the choice. Florida isnt giving Barkov.

If you have a chance to get trocheck you take it.

Really? He was already a known quantity - chosen to the 2016 World Cup under 23 team ahead of Galchenyuk.

He was a ~55 point player in 2015-16.

He started 2016-17 slow but took off in the second half of the year. That would be when i say he took the jump into being a player capable of producing 1st line numbers.

We really are seriously discussing swapping Porchetti for a 79 year old left winger from the Blues ?

Ok.

2016-17 season

January - March 32 points in 38 games
Though he did have just 1 goal in five games in April.

Also that season he was 23 points in 28 games vs West
31 points in 54 games vs East

This year.. his pre/post allstar game numbers are equivalent

33 points in 30 games vs West
42 points in 52 games vs East.


I bring the East/West numbers cause it is generally considered that the West is the bigger, tougher conference.... He doesn't seem to have an issue with "Big" competition based on those splits.

https://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/31-thoughts-karlsson-pacioretty-deadline-deals-fell-flat/

Let’s start with some Max Pacioretty. Then, we will move on to Erik Karlsson.

After Montreal’s 1-0 shootout loss to Philadelphia on Monday night, an un-traded Pacioretty passionately addressed his future. Several hours earlier, he had dropped off son Max Jr. at daycare in a Canadiens jersey.

“I’m here to tell you guys that, honestly, I hope things can work out here,” the captain said.

Pacioretty told the media that he met with GM Marc Bergevin after the deadline. While whatever was said in that conversation remains private, there is no doubt it changed his outlook. In the days and weeks leading up to Monday, Pacioretty never explicitly demanded a trade, but his feelings were well-known inside the organization.

Frustrated and tired, he was ready to go.

Bergevin didn’t make it easy. He aimed high and never wavered. It’s believed that, when Los Angeles inquired, Bergevin’s ask involved Tyler Toffoli, 2017 first-rounder Gabriel Vilardi and possibly more. The Kings quickly said no. Another belief: He asked Minnesota for Charlie Coyle-plus, also a no.

One of Pacioretty’s preferred destinations is Florida. GM Dale Tallon is close with Bergevin. I suspect the Canadiens targeted Vincent Trocheck. The Panthers weren’t doing that.

You get the idea. Montreal valued Pacioretty and refused to make a panic move at the buzzer.


At the deadline Elliotte Freidman suggested that the Habs were trying to get Trocheck for Pacioretty, but the Panthers said no.

This is why I said give Pacioretty + something to get him.
