I guess it is time to wake up

Ok .... i'm going to get flamed by everybody here...

First, I do not think the canadiens will go in playoff.. And even IF they do, I do not think they will go far.

Do you guys realize we do not have a chance to win the cup with this current team? Do you understand that if we sign souray,markov and rivet, those 3 guys will cost us about 15 millions ?

Let's say :
Souray 5.5 millions
Markov 5.5 millions
Rivet 4 millions
15 millions

Scott Niedermayer 6,750,000
Chris Pronger 6,250,000
Francois Beauchemin 500,000
13.5 millions

You understand Souray-Markov and Rivet will cost a lot of $ and doesnt provide the same defence quality like anaheim.

This is a huge problem, we need to solve it NOW

Here's a solution, I dont pretend it's the best one, but at least, i try to be realistic

Luc Bourdon

I think Vancouver need a guy like Souray to perform well in the playoff.

Kristopher Letang

Pittsburgh will go in playoff, and i think they are going to do very well, they would like top pairing d-man .. Markov and Gonchar could be dominant on pp.

Just like that, we traded the 2 best defence-man on the team for nice prospects, who , i think, are nhl-ready.

Bourdon and Letang played together at WJC, they are dominant and francophone.

Saving money at d-man position would put us in better position to sign Komisarek,Higgins,Plekanec because theirs contract will cost more and more.

We need to think for the future,.. 2009!
