When grazing over the impending ufa list a couple months ago, 2 names came to mind.

1) Brooks Laich - He can play in every situation be it pp, pk or even strength and is versatile enough to play on any line and any position. My only question is whether his lack of speed will hurt him in this system but I think he's got the smarts to overcome that.

2) Scottie Upshall - Here's an energy guy with tremendous speed and work ethic, who I think has more scoring upside than he has shown. I think he's a great 3rd line fit, and shouldn't be expensive based on his numbers.

There's so many ways that the habs can go on defense but I think they can be fine without adding new faces.

Markov-Gorges, Gill-Subban, Spacek-Wisniewski

Andrei Kostitsyn won me over again this season. This is the most satisfied I've been with him since his last contract season... hopefully that wont continue to be a trend.

I want to keep pouliot around a bit longer to see if he can figure things out, but nothing will be handed to him.
