If he sign him this summer and think he would look good on the Habs then i will trust his judgement.

But give me 1 or 2 D first. I will be disappointed if he gets a forward but we start the season with the same D corps we have now.
You are correct. Forward next year looks...decent. We have Chucky and Gally, possibly Kristo makes the team, you never know, and Dumont, my future favorite Hab, might stick. Add a tough young hungry son of a ***** on the fourth to help Prust. Dump Moen if possible.

Maybe re sign Ryder, but not likely. I think the kids can provide enough scoring. Should be good until deadline. Go for the sniper at the deadline if we are top 6 in conference.

D? Not so good. This is where I agree with you. Markov will need to drop to no. 4-5 next year, PP specialist and depth. Tinordi needs another half year in AHL, same with Beaulieu. Ellis not ready I think, if ever. We will be short a top 4.

We need a top 4 cruncher, and we need to pay big money for him. I will have no probs with this, as we are entering cup window, and we need more depth on D.

This summer is the time for Bergy to go big time for a big tough top 4 D man X, no question. Sign 3-4 years, no probs. There are always D injuries, always, and with one more tough guy, that gives us Emelin, Tinordi and X as tough depth. One of them will always be hurt, but it always leaves us 2 tough D men healthy for 3 years, and we will need it.
