Wooo yeah gonna get drunk.

Excellent! I think he is going to fit beautifully with Plekanec and Cammy. He is that net presence that can also be physical, that we needed so much on that line.

LyricalLyricist 07-01-2011 02:33 PM

We need to round out bottom 6 now.

Stradale 07-01-2011 02:33 PM

Yes! Our top 9 is improving!

Now take a gamble on Gagne.

Good!!! Finally Something

Interesting. I like Cole, but I question his play outside of Carolina. He's also had injury issues.

That said, I think Cole addresses a lot of Montreal needs.

The Kremelin Wall* 07-01-2011 02:33 PM

Erik with a K i believe too

Franky Gee 07-01-2011 02:34 PM

At the right price that would be great.

YES! YES! YES!!!!! Not only we sign a good player but we remove the Hab-Killing part!!!! Imagine him signing with the Bruins.....

Noice! I like it

WhiskeySeven 07-01-2011 02:34 PM

Not a fan at all. He's not overpaid but I just don't want him. I'll be okay with it if Gagne signs though.

Bill McNeal 07-01-2011 02:34 PM

Great deal in this market.

Big body. Excellent 5-on-5. If the usual suspects hate this, then there's no pleasing them.

LeHab 07-01-2011 02:34 PM

We needed scoring with size. Would have preferred 3 years deal but still a good signing.

stides* 07-01-2011 02:35 PM

4.5 is overpayment, no?

We Want The 25 07-01-2011 02:35 PM

Yes Woooooooo So Happy About This

Crimson Skorpion 07-01-2011 02:36 PM

Top 6 looks nice, now time to round out the bottom 6.

Marchy79 07-01-2011 02:36 PM

Key point 22 of 26 goals were ES :yo:

Pascal 07-01-2011 02:36 PM

1 yr too much but we'll see how it goes.. If we thought Markov was fragile..

He does plug a lot of the holes we had, but let's hope he stays healthy.

In this market? Not really.

It's a lot, he wouldn't have gotten it last year, but it's right in the acceptable ranger. Especially for Montreal, who has to overpay a bit for FAs.

Whitesnake 07-01-2011 02:36 PM

Said 3 years at 4.5, 4 years at 4.5 is fine with me!
