Two players that intrigues me if there team thus not resign them are

C. Daymond Langkow
and

d. john-michael liles

Daymond Langkow has always been a very underrated player in Calgary just like roman hamerlik before he came to Montreal. Damon langkow has put up some interesting numbers and is a + 79 in career + -.That very interesting for a player that played out west and for a player who has had allot of minutes playing along side of Iginla. With the amount of centers there are a guy like langkow might fall under the radar and right into are laps. Hopefully a guy like hamerlik can convince an old team ate to chose Montreal if the Habs go after him. At 30 he still has some hockey left and brings winning experience.

John micheal liles is a offensive minded defense men with some good puck control abilities. With the wade redden,rob blake, adam foot, brad stuart of the world liles is another one of those people that could fall under the radar if colorado thus not sign him.

These two would be some solid additions to a already strong core of players. There the types of players that will help chemistry instead of breaking like some big names that are out there and best of all there players that are not going to brake the bank.

I'm not sure where this notion that Hossa is likely to re-sign with Pittsburgh comes from. He's made noises about a pay cut, but even a pay cut on Hossa's considerable moolah will make him fit in the Penguins' salary cap picture unless they unload money somewhere -- and doing something like trading Ray Whitney will hurt them more than keeping Hossa will help.

Nevertheless, to play the game, I think Montreal should try to get someone of Sundin's (or Hossa's) caliber. Rolston may also fit into this category.

Montreal doesn't need any more "good" top-six forwards, so if they don't get a "great" one, they might as well not bother, unless they feel they need a veteran replacement for Ryder, or a center for more offensive flexibility (a la Morrisson). But that would be a bit of a depth or lateral move -- there's no crying NEED here.

Montreal is set on D, is already spending enough money on D, and has plenty of young defensemen in the system, so beyond re-signing Streit, I don't think they should look at defensemen at all.

As for goaltending. I think going with Price/Halak is fine, but a Lalime-type veteran might be a good addition if there's spare money. Again, this is not a priority.

Pretty much the only thing Montreal is missing right now is a top-flight even-strength forward. All their other bases are covered and covered well. So yeah, it really does look like Hossa/Sundin or bust, this year.

F: Bobby Holik - Big frame at 6'4 230lbs and does use it. Has offensive abilities, kills penalties and plays a good two way game.


D: Adam Foote - Right handed shot with cup experience. Plays very physical and has great leadership skills. I think he would be a good compliment to Hamrlik.

O: Sundin
D: Nobody

I don't see the point of adding another defenseman, O'Byrne needs to play and will get much better if he plays full time. Sundin would center another offensive line and take much pressure off Koivu. Besides, all three can play a defensive role as well.

I would sign a veteran goaltender for Hamilton but I'm not sure who would agree. I would keep Halak in Montreal.

bad idea... No way we spend the last young good center we have while there is nobody in the system that could replace Sundin in 2 seasons and koivu in 3

F: Sean Avery - he's the type of jerk that I'd rather have playing for us than against us
D: Chris Chelios - there isn't a better option out there for a veteran d-man to work with our youngsters

I have to go with Sundin as my forward. There's nothing else to say about that. As Plan Bs, I'd consider Langkow and Holik, but I'd be wary of overpaying or oversigning them beyond their usefulness.

I think the team could use a top 4 defenceman. I've officially started lobbying for Redden. A re-signed Streit and one more year of Bouillon would cost almost as much as what he's likely to get. I wouldn't hesitate to take Redden over those two, despite his fall from his Number 1 D-man status. He would give the Habs 3 solid pairings and someone who can also play the PP and PK. With Gorges and O'Byrne and the prospects, the Habs would maintain some cap flexibility and still have room to grow their own talent over the next few years.

There are 3 rules to follow in your answer so as to
make the answers as brief and succint as possible.


1 - Name one forward you'd like us to have (Not Hossa).

2 - Name one Defenseman/Goalie you'd like us to have.

3 - Hossa is not to be included in any of the choices
because of the high likeliness that he will stay with the Pens.


My two choices are:

1 - Brooks Orpik
2 - Patrick Lalime


Your turn now:
Wow , so restrictive.

goalie need not be on this list, it's funny to think the team needs anything in that area.

Sundin is the only must-catch fish. Langkow is plan B.
Streit is optional.
Hainsey, if stories that he's grown up are accurate, intrigues me.


The rest - slugs or overpriced.

Don't need to trade Pleks... thats a bad idea, considering he's the current number 1 center... and Koivu and Sundin are older....

You just roll three offensive lines... nothing wrong with that...

AKost - Pleks - Kovalev
Higgins - Sundin - SKost
Tender - Koivu -
Kosto - Chipper - Lapierre

The 3rd line RW spot is open for
a) another FA
b) Camp battle Streit/Grabovsky/D'ago/Stewart/Lapierre/Chips/Max Pac/Wyman/etc....

D: Wade Redden
F: Brian Rolston

Two Experienced Forward for our youg lineup.

My Lineup:
S.Kostsitsyn, Koivu, Latendresse
A.Kostsitsyn, Plekanek, Kovalev
Higgins, Chipchura, Rolston
Begin, Lapierre, Stuart/Kostopoulos

On D:
Markov, Komisarek
Hamerlik, Georges
Redden, Obyrne

All three pairs would be pretty good defencively and gifted for a good transition game.
