So what UFA signings would we have made?
Would Koivu/Kovaleav/Tanguay even want to resign here if we hadnt made any moves by now?
If they didn't then where would we be?

Personally I don't mind having small forwards who are also fast and exciting to watch, in the top6 at least.
I prefer our bigger players to be in the bottom 6 and on defense.
MIGHT being the key word here, and reguardless of who we got after Gomez we paid waaay too much for him in the first place. Dont tell me we couldn't have gotten him for next to nothing.

I didnt see a problem keeping Koivu, Tanguay and maybe one/two more. You know the face of the franchise, the longest serving captain & the guy who dragged this ******* team for years? A guy pours his career into this team and he doesnt even get the option to retire a hab, he gets to wait by his phone while some overpaid POS with no stake in the Habs walks in and takes over.

I have watched and stood by this team for years while they were terrible but I always thought they were at least respectable but that is all out the window now. Habs are no better than the miserable leafs. What I saw today makes me want to puke.
