Then MTL decline, it’s 8th OA or nothing, we’ll keep him then
We don’t need Montour when we have Weber Petry 2X better than him

Lmao Jt Miller in 18-19
75 GP, 13 goals 34 assist 47 points 51 point pace over 82

Max Domi,
71 GP, 17 goals, 27 assist 44 points 50 point pace over 82 games. It’s the same situation. Plus Petry’s contract is expiring so Montreal might want to grab another RHD.

MTL is probably going to give new deals to Danault and Gallagher this offseason (probably at a combined 14-15M)... they are going to need the cap space with a flat cap coming and cheap talent. I can see Bergevin making this move.

Drouin was injured for most of the year, Byron too.....this is not a % based list. Armia and Suzuki were probably his most used linemates thoughout the year but that was not even for a majority portion of the year as it changed so many times it was no wonder he had an off season.. Suzuki only started playing bigger minutes towards the second half of the year only. Armia was probably Domi's most used linemate.

Now lets all be reminded of the fact that the Habs top line of Tatar/Danault/Gallagher stayed intact for most of the year with Danault having only 3 points more than Domi.........

If you add up all the non top 6 players playing time who played alongside Domi this year, they'd be close to if not equal to the top 6 players playing time. Drouin, Suzuki, Kovalchuk. The others were Armia, Lehkonen, Cousins, Weal and maybe a few shifts with Kotkaniemi. Why is this falling on Domi's shoulders? The two players Domi played with during his 72 point season BOTH had career years and were healthy for most of the season and the line stayed intact for MOST of that year.

44 points playing with 8 different players on his wing/as his center, half of which are not top 6 players, is astounding IMO. Domi's only valid criticism this year was his temper for taking bad penalties and his slightly lacklustre defensive play. Don't know how anyone can criticize his offensive game. He produced no worse than any other Habs forward.

Never said you were criticizing? Only that the list you were showing wasn't in any order which may be misleading. Was just trying to add some context to the linemates discussion.

Thanks for sharing the link though, I was trying to find a good site for that but yeah it shows what I was trying to convey. Domi 19-20 was a blender of linemates, most of which were not top 6 players.
