All this Perry/Getzlaf talk is driving me nuts. I'd love to see both players in Montreal but I doubt it would happen. Perry is a low key guy, likes the quiet aspect of being a star in a small market. If he leaves Anaheim, it's definitely not for the jungle of Montreal/NYR/TOR/etc. Getlaf if a guaranteed sign for the Ducks. Why would they let him go? Size, smarts, leadership, talent, etc. He's also expressed publicly his intentions to stay.
What we need to look at in two other FWD's and one D with size.
1. Most importantly, Ryane Clowe of the Sharks. He's got size, can put the back of the net and knows what it is to play hockey in Quebec (played in the Q for Rimouski). UFA this summer. He's having a rough start for the Sharks this season and needs a change. I can easily seeing him score 50-60 points with Plekanec, Galchenyuk or Desharnais, depending on what you're line up is to start next season. Honestly I'd have traded for him instead of Ryder, even though the latter's got something good going for him right now. Let's just hope that keep going on in with the BleuBlancRouge.
Im sure everyone has seem this video. Great team player.

2. If that fails, David Clarkson is another guy similar to Clowe who is very hot right now and UFA this summer. Similar style and size, but with a little less points banked up throughout his career. He killing right now and had a good season last year (breakthrough year), but was a 3rd liner prior to that for the Devils. Here's how he scores most of his goals

3. On the blue line, Douglas Murray. He's very physical and drop people on the daily, similar to what Emelin is doing for us right now, though Murray is much bigger. He'd be a perfect 5-6th D for any team looking for physicality and defence.

I guess well see how Ryder performs but I'd prefer Clarkson and Clowe over him any day.

Clowe/Clarkson/Ryder - Desharnais - Pacioretty
Galchenyuk - Plekanec - Bourque
Gionta - Eller - Gallagher
Prust - White - Moen
perhaps Armstrong, or Dumont or some other FA/Trade as 13th

Subban Gorges
Diaz Markov
Emelin Murray

and as 7th I doubt Weber will be back but who knows. Probable Tinordi though.

That's my 2 cents.
