Second, we can't sign Kostitsyn, he has a KHL contract for this year...not just a lock out contract but a regular one. He signed KHL before the lock out.
Third, Galchenyuk can't paly in the minors as he is 18, so it's OHL or NHL. I hope he stays OHL but he can play nHL and contribute right now, I just think it would be best for his development to finish the year oHL and make the jump at 19.
Fourth, I don't see how the Bourque trade looks bad, cammy has a huge contract and the cap is dropping, even with a late resurgence in Calgary he isn't worth anywhere near a 6 mil cap hit in the new CBA. With any kind of bounce back bourque will be worth his cap hit. PLUS we got a good prospect and a 2nd rounder. Great deal for us.
You have better news than I have, glad to hear Plekanec is OK.
Too late now then. I think they should have made him an offer. I thought AK was generally good, just didn't avoid hits well. I suspect he played half his career concussed. He got seriously hammered every game or two. Every time he'd get a streak going he'd get creamed and slow down for a few games.
Bad choice of words on my part. 9 games max unless it looks like they have a chance to do some damage in the playoffs.
Geoffrion may be out for good following his hit. I really hope Bourque will bounce back but I don't expect it until he gets to the last year of his contract. No more long term deals for him. Cammeleri had one bad year in what was a crappy year for the team. I hope the deal looks better a couple of years from now but I'm not counting on it.
If Plekanec and Markov are healthy and productive it could be a good year for the team. If not the draft is pretty deep and any top ten pick is likely to be good. If Plekanec is out the habs may have a chance at Seth Jones. Definitely better to play the season than pick a ball for draft placement.
