Apparently, Antropov wife loves Montreal. It's unconfirmed right now if the Habs are interested but Antropov would definitely be interested to play for the Habs.

Unless Gainey is going to go with plan Z, I don't think it will happen.

He needs to keep the focus to sign Beauchemin, Havlat/Gaborik and Kovalev/Tanguay. If he can only sign one of the last four, I think (hope) that Gionta would be next on his list. Then (I hope we won't be forced to go there), Antropov could be an option but not at 5M$ per.
Well maybe we can get Antropov at a discount if he (and his wife) wants to play here.

Antropov at $3.75M for 5-years would be fine by me. And not as a Plan B.. the guy is a good player. Even though he's slow, if you watch him, he works hard. He digs, he goes to the net, and he'll play in front of the net which is exactly what we need. Size. He's got it.
