1-Duh! It's UFA time...why the **** are people keep saying it's too much when they want to see some movement at that time, and when the UFA period is usually about paying people TOO MUCH. Then, you add the fact that once people realize Montreal is not THAT hot of a destination based on the fact that we don't win cups every year, that's there are taxes and pressure and so on well again...super duh!, yes, it's too much. But either you want to pay too much, either you shut up about wanting some players at the UFA period. You can't have both. And the day you have both it will mean that you're living in a WINNING city, with WINNING condition. We most likely NEVER going to have winning conditions, so we must build a winning team before hoping we don't pay TOO MUCH.
2- That's the price you pay for things YOU DON'T HAVE. And most likely every team will end up doing it. Some with better results than others. But when you are looking for something in specifics, can't draft them, can't wait for them, or whatever, you pay a little more to be sure you'll get a better mix.
Great signing, this guy is not goon, can contribute, plays on the PK, with Moen and Prust, you do have at least 2 guys that might diminuish some of our "stars" PK time so that they concentrate on scoring goals instead.
Best post of the thread! Agree 100%
