Ris..... Fletcher interviewd saying Habs hold exclusive rights to negotiate with Sundin until July 1st!

No word on compensation for Leafs. You don't give exclusive rights without compensation.

The Tanguay trade is official and we get a 5th rounder this year while our 2nd next year goes to Calgary. I hope, and think, we are not done here folks.

I'm not to happy bout loosing our 2nd next year, and I don't believe Tanguay will bring us up to that level of playing field we need to be a contender. Thoughts?

One would assume the compensation will be based on if he signs with Montreal. Make it happen Gainey, 1 year, 8, 9, 10 million, it doesn't matter!!!

I made an OT Draft thread if you guys want to use that. It's easier to keep track of all the info.

That's why you trade Coburn for Zhitnik...

I think Tanguay gives us a 2nd good scoring line though. Let's wait and see if we get Mats.

If we're only doing that in this off-season, I agree. But just wait and see before deciding.

Tanguay doesn't exactly come to mind first when you think of what the habs need....but when you can get a player of the offensive caliber for a 25th and 2nd rounder you do it.

Good trade for the habs!

we just acquired a top 6 player without touching our roster or our prospects. And we still have quite a bit of money left. What exactly are you looking for?

We're safe. Umberger is out of the conf. Great trade by Philly because they not only get a good return, they shed a cap casualty.

So I guess we sit tight to the 2nd round? Gainey is sitting on his ass just wondering who to draft in the 2nd round? O_O or is there something else up his sleeve?

Boynton is no.5 defenseman. The real key here is Keith Ballard. The guy is a complete player, a possible no.2 defenseman.

With Vokoun in net and Bouwmeester, Ballard, Allen, Boynton and I guess two of Van Ryn, Skrastins, Murphy and Welch....
Florida's defensive game is going to be awesome.

Bob Gainey on CKAC "We're confident Mats will sign with us", ".. there will only be compensation to Toronto if we sign Mats".

Tanguay on CKAC "I'm very, very excited to be a Montreal Canadien".
