for game 1 of the playoffs
 
lats should definitely be back by then unless i missed something.

even without any trades (which i feel will come) we would be able to ice a great lineup (IMO)

tanguay-koivu-akost
patches-plekanec-kovalev
latendresse-lapierre-higgins :yo:
stewart-chipchura-kostopolous
---
laraque-begin

(d'agostini goes back to hamilton, sergei stays there)

markov-schneids
hamr-komo
gorges-dandenault
---
boullion-brisebois

we should all cross our fingers and toes in the hopes we have a healthy line-up come mid-April.

and no, i dont fear our not making the playoffs :)

lol...I think that's kind of obvious Le CH Sont La. But what happens to your line up if Gainey decides to make a few trade deadline deals? Or do you feel that Gainey will stick with our current roster?

Obviousman to the rescue...

That Habs Fan 02-25-2009 10:48 AM

my point was, that given gainey's track record, i think we should all appreciate the fact that we could ice a very good lineup even sans trades.

again, that is only my opinion, but it is certainly better than what we've had in past years heading into the playoffs

Wow, you didn't come up with this all by yourself did you? :sarcasm:

My question was did the OP think that Gainey was done and that will be our final roster.

Thanks Le CH Sont La, I wasn't sure. But this is what I thought you meant.

One Man Rock Band 02-25-2009 11:06 AM

I think we could really use a center and without losing big pieces. A guy like STEVEN REINPRECHT out of Phoenix may be a possible target. I think, we could fit him in our CAP, without trading any warm bodies, though Phoenix may look at a guy like Stewart, but I'm sure they'd rather have draft picks.

Tanguay - Koivu - D'Agostini
Pacioretty - Plekanec - A. Kostitsyn
Higgins - Reinprecht - Kovalev
Latendresse - Lapierre - Kostopoulos
Begin, Laraque

Markov - Scheinder
Hamrlik - Komisarek
Gorges - Brisebois/Bouillon/Dandenault

Price
Halak

Call-up O'Byrne, Stewart, and Chipchura should Hamilton be eliminated from the playoffs.

Netro 02-25-2009 11:27 AM

The guy to get even though he is hurt is Doug Weight. A centre who plays the point on PP unit #2. UFA at year end and I would think would not cost too much in assets

Tanguay-Koivu-Dago
MaxPac-Pleks-Kovalev
Latendresse-Lapierre-Kosto
Higgins-Weight-AKost

Extras:
Begin, Laraque, Chips, Stewart (minors)

Markov-Schneider
Hamrlik-Komi
Gorges-Dandenault

Extras: Bouillion, Briseby

Price
Halak

Jakomyte 02-25-2009 01:15 PM

Without any extra moves?

Tanguay-Koivu-D'Agostini
Pacioretty-Plekanec-Kovalev
Higgins-Chipchura-Andrei
Latendresse-Lapierre-Kostopolous

Markov-Schneider
Hamrlik-Komisarek
Bouillion-Gorges

Price
Halak

I have been very happy with the reconnection of Plekanec/Kovalev, but still think that Andrei could do more damage on his own line without them. Give him some nice complementary players (Higgins/Chipchura) and I think he could help give us a real 3rd line threat. He would still get good PP time of course. Also eager to see the Lats-Laps-Kosto line again as an awesome 4th line once Lats is healthy.

GoHabsGO252006 02-25-2009 02:10 PM

Get Pronger.

Markov Schneider
Pronger Komisarek
Hamrlik Gorges

WOW.

I think it's important to mention ''on paper''.

We'd ice a very good team on paper.

WOW.

YES!! if bob can some how get Pronger i would flip out.

DO IT!! ok down to reality, never gonna happen.


That is where the upgrade will come if it does. were good everywhere else. We will be getting guys coming off injury(tangs,Lats, lang if we last long enough) to help up front. Halak is holding the fort, price is chompin at the bit and will be ready if called upon after a run by his veteran partner in the nets;). I have faith in Price.

The 6th defence position of Brisebois/Dandeneault/O'byrne/Weber and injured Bouillon, needs the upgrade by getting a Pronger and moving Hamrlik and Gorges down the depth chart or by going out and getting a guy like Kuba.


Koivu- Higgins,Tangs

Pleks- Kovalev,AK46

Lappy- Lats,Max Pac

Chip's- Kostopoulos,Stewart

Spares: D'agostini, Begin, Dandeneault, Laraque(if he isn't traded)

Move Lang in the lineup when he is available.


The defence above with Pronger or another.

bib 02-26-2009 01:43 AM

let's focus on playing good hockey, being consistent and actually making the playoffs right now. the 9th place team is only 4 points back.
