You get better, younger and save cap space to go after free agents to complement this new core while focusing on size, toughness and speed.
While giving the Habs one of the most talented young player's rights,it in no way insures he will come over to play.With the Habs stating Moen isn't being traded there is no way in Hades they will trade Plekanec.Kuznetsov is a real showboater just like Ovechkin and if Ovie continues to play like he has since the Olympics,well he may find himself in the AHL.Yashin and many other very good players have come to the NHL saying it's their dream to play here.My thought is the Olympics are far more important to them than honoring the commitments made to owners for the millions their paid.The IIHF has in mind that they will gain the benefit of the income from the Olympic Hockey in Russia,while using the NHL and its players to draw huge revenues.Well they will be sadly disappointed if they think they can pressure the NHL into doing their bidding somewhat like the WHA was so many years ago.
