Hockey Crunch – Stick a Fork in the Habs for 2020 – Time to Trade Price & Others. By Jamie Gilcig JAN 28, 2020

Right now Hab fans have to be wondering about owner Geoff Molson? Either he’s calling the shots and Bergy is a puppet, or he’s simply letting a really really really bad GM ruin a legendary franchise.

Hockey Crunch by Jamie Gilcig Trade Deadline – Bergy & Habs #epicfail Dorion Winning – Toronto Stands Pat – Winnipeg Panics – Flames Choke – Canucks Confusion

It’s been a busy trade deadline in some ways. Ottawa was facing the biggest challenge. Out were Duchene, Stone, and Dzingel. Duchene was a disastrous mistake last year.

HOCKEY CRUNCH Best Result From this Season for Hab Long Term Health is to Trade Price & Weber by Jamie Gilcig 022019

I know crazy. While there’s some play off fever going on in la belle province the best situation that’s evolved this season is the recovery of high priced Goalie Carey Price. The man has value even with his contract, heck if LV can give a 30+ goalie in Marc Andre Fleury $7M per for 3… Continue reading HOCKEY CRUNCH Best Result From this Season for Hab Long Term Health is to Trade Price & Weber by Jamie Gilcig 022019

Cornwall Ontario – It’s going to be a sad season in Montreal.   Like many others I have no idea why such a legendary team has run itself into the ground.

Will Vegas Flip Pacioretty After Habs Trade? By Jamie Gilcig 091018

Cornwall Ontario –  Oddly enough this will go down as one of Hab GM Marc Bergevin’s best trades. It wasn’t a great trade, and barely was a good trade as the team diminished its asset as it seems bent on doing.   Will they be trashing Carey Price and his near untradeable contract next if the… Continue reading Will Vegas Flip Pacioretty After Habs Trade?

Cornwall Ontario –   Yes, it’s that time!   Sadly the Habs didn’t make the playoffs because GM Marc Bergevin totally blew it this season and it seems that owner Geoff Molson might actually let him have a seventh kick at the can which is way too Rejean Houle scary.
