I swear if Skittles or MooseOAk come back in that deal, I'm going to virtually riot the HF Boards.

If you believe that, I've got some property you might be interested in buying.

It's sad, but it's true. Eklund gives voice to all our fantasies (well, the hockey related ones at least).

He he he.... I was thinking the same thing. If people believe that agents, players and GM's are not talking UFA contract offers just cause the league doesn't allow it they're screwed! Come on, of course they talk.... of course they make up things...

I want Streit back with the Habs next year, but I don't think we should give him anymore than a 2 year/$2 million deal. He had one good offensive season and he isn't that great of a defencemen. If he wants more money than that....let him go somewhere else to get it.
I'm totally with you on this one. Say what you want about his 62 points, versatility, etc. I just really don't see him being worth more than $2 per year. $2.5 maximum. He was bad in the playoffs. He's so-so in his own end. Really, I think he's a decent puck mover and has a good shot, most of the time. But his impact on the game and team is not in the $3.5 - 4 range, and certainly not in the $5 range.

Sadly, I think it's another case of a guy I'd like to keep on the team because he does have value, but we're going to be hosed by stupid GMs into either losing him for nothing or over-paying for an asset that can only be described as decent.

They do it discretely but its done....

For example say you are an agent for Streit, you probably have a ton of players in your stable.... so I'm a GM who wants streit, I call you up and say this.

"So Jim, do you know of any Free Agent defencemen out there who are good on the PP.... If you think of one we are interested in offering him a contract. Something in the range of 4million per year for 4 years.... I don't know though, he has to be pretty versatile too, maybe be able to play forward sometime too."

So they never mention the name, but its obvious who he is talking about, and its not tampering cause an agent can have lots of players that the GM is potentially calling about.

if someone wants to give striet 5 million range then forget it! let him go!

use that 5 milion plus another 1-2 million and you could sign Campbell or Redden EASY!
and you would be much better off!

Streit at 3M$ or /3,5M$ I'm ok with it...

But if he wants more, I would prefer to give 5M$ to Redden or 3M$ to Hainsey...

Wow, why in the hell would the Oilers want Streit. ???? They have Souray with the shot and Streit is not a puck moving defensmen which they need. Oh well Very weird, Streit will be in a Habs uniform next year like it or not.

Eklund has the dream job, too bad he is getting his rumours from NHL 08 for the PS3

I think Ron Hainsey will be a very hot commodity on the market. Big, strong, mobile and has a great first pass. Montréal should definitely look into trying to acquire him. I doubt they will because we have so many young defencemen coming up. However, Streit at 3.5 million to play forward is a little iffy for me. But it doesnt matter because he is a leader and he can score some clutch goals like we saw against Boston.

IMO the leaders on this club are:

Koivu
Kovalev
Higgins
Komisarek
Gorges
Price
Streit
Brisebois
Bouillon
Bégin
Kostopoulos
Smolinski
Hamrlik

Plekanec is also very important for the team chemistry as he is well spoken and I am sure he is involved with many of the teams extra curricular activities.

Streit is a very key component in our locker room IMO; so we should definitely keep him.

Forwards Gainey could be looking at include Rolston, Jagr and Hossa. I think the Habs need to acquire a player like Mike Fisher, Rolston, Draper etc..

I am 90% certain that Streit will be re-signed. He likes it in Montréal and Gainey has said that would be one of his priorities. Sorry to disappoint any poster who suggests that Streit should be used only as a PP specialist, but it isn't practical with a 20-man roster. Why? Because at even strength Carbonneau would either have to rotate 5 Dmen or double-shift 1 forward in order to ice 4 lines.

Streit is fine as an even strength 3rd/4th line forward.

Do We need Streit???

I was thinking our Powerplay really rebounded against the Flyers. I like Streit on the powerplay but what about the rest of his game. Most of the time his defence abiltity is not bad. For a 3rd or 4th line roll he is alright in those situations too. Do we need a player just for the powerplay. I would rather have Chipchura play or any of our youth on those lines.

Bottom line in my opinion we need a defensemen that can log minutes and has the shot from point. Kind of like Souray but not as horrible in there own zone. Since Campbell and Redden are the only ones availble and most teams will over pay. Also John Michael Liles is avaiable. Or should we build within for a player to come out of there shell.

It all depends on how much money Streit wants but is there anything else out there we could use instead? 3 million is still a little high for a utility player if thats the price range.

Perhaps having a utility player is not a bad thing but for how much.

You have to realize that we're not going to be paying Streit for his defence abilities but his 50+ point season.

No more Streit. We saw how bad he was in the playoffs, I don't want anymore of that especially since a team will probably overpay for his services. I don't think there would be anything wrong with a Kostitsyn on the PP. Let a rookie make the team instead of Streit taking up a spot.

I like Streit, but I would rather see a more physical d-man take his spot if it comes down to him getting 3 million.

Do you think we could go after a UFA or a young D- man in our system which could replace him. Like Emelin if we could actually sign him. (spelling?)

I think if we had that bullet shot with lots of body's in front of the net for the playoffs it would be ideal but no one is left on the market.

If Bob can unload Dandenault im ok paying Streit that much money. Otherwise we would be stuck with 5M on Dandy/Streit.
