It's time to close that thread where f*** this team was our mandate. I like what I'm seeing from the Montreal Canadiens right now. So it's time for a more optimistic thread. For the 2021 Montreal Canadiens? This f****** team is intriguing.

f****** stupid mother f****** voice to text on my f****** phone f****** autocorrecting my f****** beautiful language for f*** sake Jesus f****** Christ eat a f****** bag of dicks Google.

Ok Stink!

I've locked the old thread, so we can post in this thread going forward. I too like the direction they are going and time will tell.

This fucking team!

They build us up just to let us down.

In the ye olde thread I correctly predicted the contract may the record show.

I might actually climb down the ledge from my 8 x 6.25M Danault prediction. Maybe he's closer to a 6 x 6.

The record shall show! :P

I think somewhere between 6 x 6 / 6 x 6.5 max would be good for Danault.

As for Gallagher, he's the kind of guy you lock up even if you know he'll break down at some point. Couldn't imagine him on another team.

He has a full no movement clause and at no trade clause limited to six teams. Anybody want to make some guesses on the teams?

My guess that the list would include Ottawa Toronto and Boston. Other than that who else does he really really hate?

Vancouver would be on there although his new contract has put them out of the running.

Since 2017-18, at 5v5, Brendan Gallagher is:

5th in goals. Behind only Matthews, McDavid, Kucherov and Ovechkin

1st in shots.

1st in individual high-danger shots.

1st in rush attempts

1st in rebounds created.

1st in CF% among forwards.

1st in xGF% among forwards

End of an Era with that thread now locked.

Give Bergy credit--he made Gallagher and his camp blink with the public "leaking" that trade talks had broken off. Gallagher probably took one look at the collapsed forward market this offseason and opted to stay.

Bergevin was nearly brought to tears at the press conference explaining how important Gallagher is to the team. Brendan said this offseason was a message that it's time to win.

The confidence from both was notable. Bergevin finally has the team of his dreams, so it's all or nothing now. They have to win.

So as EL noted in the old thread of potential lines, which I will put here.

Drouin-Suzuki-Anderson
Tatar-Danault-Gallagher
Lehkonen-Kotkaniemi-Toffoli
Byron-Poehlevans-Armia

Chiarot-Weber
Edmundson-Petry
Kulak-Romanete

Pricallen

This does look pretty decent! Not sure about cup winner, but decent.

I'd say it's an overpay for Gallagher but hea, if you're going overpay on anyone it's going to be Gallagher who brings it each and every night plus some.

The timing is right, too.

Tampa has some cap bloodletting to do, the Bruins lost a top pairing defenceman to free agency and two stars to injury, and Toronto shored up their depth problems with Spezza and Thornton. The young Habs are coming.
