I mean, there is definitely a good chunk of blame that goes towards the Habs piss poor scouting and player development departments who seem chronically unable to draft and develop star players, and who absolutely destroyed any confidence Galchenyuk ever had with the constant position/line drama, but at the end of the day an even larger chunk of the blame rests on Galchenyuk's shoulders. He had lots of talent but absolutely no head to match it. Just a complete mess all around.

Refs called this a penalty in 2OT, yikes... Northeastern wins on a PP goal by 2018 Habs pick Jordan Harris. NEU with the Beanpot threepeat.

I wonder whether the Habs are going to end up fleecing Poile out of the entire Preds roster, or if Shea will just up and retire to screw Nashville

Predators have some big contracts that aren't paying off but at least they aren't saddled with NMCs like the Sharks.

Johansen, 5 years left
Duchene, 6 years left
Turris, 4 years left

Forsberg and Arvidsson are in their middle 20's but Josi, Ekholm, and Ellis are 29 and Josi's new contract kicks in next year, leaving them with $70M spent on 15 players.

They aren't in trouble yet (still have all their 1st round picks) but their window is closing fast. Plus the Weber thing.

Holland reuniting with Tomas Tatar. Hearing he wants Andreas Athanasiou too. Can the wings just give him all his old players for draft picks?

Shesterkin got pulled after taking a nasty hit to the head. Lundqvist is in while he's getting checked for concussions.
