Sometimes it's better to go for doubles.
That's why I want Rozsival and Fedorov....

A triple and a single..... will be only one HR away from a carousel, not so bad at all.

He definitely wouldn't be my first choice. But he is a big name to the american viewing audience. I think that is one of the reasons he was considered over more qualified options.

Not saying it's right, but after going to a couple of Tampa games last year. Management has a lot more to worry about than just improving the product on the ice. They also have to concentrate on actually getting more fans interested in coming to the games.

No not yet, it's reported that it should be confirmed tomorrow. So as of right now, this thread title is a little misleading.

The Bolts ranked 8th in the NHL this year for attendance and were 3rd in '07.

The problem is in Sunrise, the Panthers aren't very popular.

And if it's correct you'll never use that kind of argument again right?

I actually wouldn't mind trying to sign Rozsival. He could be used on the 2nd pairing and on the 2nd PP unit. O'Byrne would be the #7 and would fill in for injuries and etc.

We'd have one of the best D-corps in the league... and we already had the best offense fueled by a good transition D... imagine if you add Rozsival and Tanguay... and Fedorov as 3rd centerman.

Thanks for the correction TS. I was only going by the two games I went to last year. There wasn't a lot of people at the games, and not a lot of people talking hockey on the streets. Next time I'll definitely do more research.

Florida was actually brutal this year, we (Canadiens fans) out numbered the Panther fans 3 to 1.

I'd sign Fedorov as a last resort if we didn't get any big fish but i'm more worried about defence because if Markov ever got hurt I don't know what I'd think about having Hamrlik and Bouillon as our top 2 PP defensemen.

Look at this : http://sports.espn.go.com/nhl/attendance?year=2008

The Panthers did fairly well for a non-traditional market but when Keenan traded Luongo the attendance went down the drain.

Habs game in Florida are always fun to watch around christmas, always full of snowbirds cheering for the good guys

Aren't you forgetting Komisarek or are you talking on the left side exclusively, cuz anyway, Rozsival is a righty and would fit well with Hammer.

That's why I think that Rozsival should be part of plan A, as he's the most logical choice to upgrade the team's overall at a fair cost.

Thanks for the list TS, I definitely would have guessed that Tampa was much lower.

Oh it was great, the only time I've been to a game where I felt sorry for the opposition fans.

I never forgot about Komi, I just left him out because he's very rarely used on the PP even on the 2nd unit and Hamrlik & Bouillon both get more PP time. That's why I think we need a puck moving D to replace Streit and Rozsival would be a good choice.

He'd be the most logical and perfect choice as we are missing a 2nd pairing RH D.

And he's Czech like Hammer..... 6'2 210

sign at the bottom PLEAZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZE

Yeah sure Tampas attendance was that high but I was down there for a habs tampa game this year and got two seats 5 rows from the ice for 100$
There was a guy trying to sell me seats in their version of the club desjardains section for 45$ each.

That's true, he can't sign before July 1st.... but it seems like it's only a matter of reaching that date.

For all we know, everything Lavoie says may happen... but right now, NONE of it did...

and considering Lavoie barely speak english, I really wonder who his sources could be...
