Gordie Howe coming to Montreal for signing?
 
Hockey/Inside Out said he would be coming on march 24th, and more news would be announced, but nothing else has been publicized. Can someone please give me more info including price? Thanks.

Edit: he's coming for an autograph session. Have to clarify for the smarta** posts below. :)

We signed Gordie Howe ? Isn't he past his prime.

Tribu 03-18-2012 09:01 PM

He's a bit old but he'd be better than Campoli (even if he's not a def)

Watsatheo 03-18-2012 09:07 PM

Decent career numbers.

BeBen* 03-18-2012 09:08 PM

I'd give Gomez to have him

Forget Howe: I'd freakin' give Gomez period! To ANY team!! :p:

Howe couldn't play in today's game. he would get suspended in the first five minutes with his dirty elbows.;)

WeezyHabFan 03-18-2012 09:40 PM

Everybody loves a good come back story, I can imagine his first game he gets his own hat trick

ROSSter 03-18-2012 09:52 PM

We better not overpay, PG will probably sign him to a 7 year 6 mill deal that will screw us for life. :sarcasm:

Bloumeister 03-18-2012 09:58 PM

Finally, a big, no-nonsense wingman to play with Pleks :yo:

It may interest you to know that Gordie Howe DID play several games at defense. It occurred many years ago (of course), when Ned Harkness was coach of the Red Wings. Look it up. here's another bit of trivia for you: He used a flat-bladed stick and although he was a right wing with a right-handed shot he occasionally switched hands and shot left to get a better angle.

"Gar'Dehors s'il mouille"....That's probably the first joke my father told me 39 years ago....Only the francos could understand (please use a heavy accent..you might come to Gordie Howe...)

RaMMuT 03-19-2012 10:40 AM

**** it, I say we sign this proven veteran for a longterm deal!!!

MAKE IT HAPPEN GAUTHIER!

Madam Kadri 03-19-2012 10:50 AM

He can fight and is tough as nails. We must. :naughty:

Valois 03-19-2012 10:51 AM

Some of you are crazy if you think we actually have a chance of signing a proven UFA like Howe. Howe is a guy who wants to win, he's gonna go somewhere where he thinks he has a shot.

Well to be fair with the smartasses, your title is kinda misleading and troll-friendly...:handclap:
