Habs - I believe - Off-season Edition

This board is getting crazy with the off-season Free Agent Frenzy... I just wanna say.

Signing a UFA or not.... Adding pieces or not....

This is still a damn good lineup...

One that has added pieces to a team that finished first in the conference last year

We are gonna be a cup contender next year

I believe in Bob Gainey... and I believe we will be better as our young players are maturing...... 2009.... 25 in 100... .its our time

I believe

Well, be more shocked if we sign anyone besides our own players.

I think Gainey wants to wait for Sundin before he goes after anyone else....

not a smart idea.

Because then if Sundin decides to sign elsewhere, it may be too late for the other players Bob had in mind.

unfortunately, with all the hype, i think we will all be extremely disappointed if we dont sign a big name. However, its happened to us so many times, i dont think we'll be surprised.

we do have a great lineup, but i think we are missing a few key pieces, we def wont be worse then last year though.

i believe, regardless of what happens!

man.. its not even july 1st (well over there) and we're resorting to the rally caps :O
gotta love the habs board haha
btw
i agree with you fully beaker, we have the same as last year except we've replaced ryder/streit with tanguay/s. kost (for a whole season) and that automatically makes us a better team and thats without adding anyone else

I also believe... Young guns will get better with one more year of experience... That's something a lot of people forget about when they only compare names between last season and this season...

I believe in the core the Habs already have. I believe they can do this with or without big name UFAs. And I also believe the pieces of the puzzle will be brought in, even if they aren't the pieces we were anticipating or hoping for. Gainey knows what he's doing.

Nope, it's not. So, I hope he doesn't and gets out there and makes offers to other players too.

if hossa and some of the other upper level FA's are smart they'd wait on sundin and see what happens with him because then they'd be better situated for a better pay day by creating a bidding war

the only exception however is campbell who i think will sign pretty quickly and where he feels is best (apparently he has some family considerations) so in that case, he'd sign quick but not necessarily where the moneys at (unless someone goes nuts of course) and where he feels comfortable to travel home easily and what not

By the way, the Church of Koivu is holding another meeting. Stephen Locke should be sending out the flyers sometime soon.

I believe ! UFA or not, our team is still better than it was last year on paper with the addition of Tanguay (we may lose Streit though...), and with the great experience our youngsters had, we just can't be worse.

I believe in my team, I believe in their leaders, I believe in our Canadiens !

GO HABS GO !

A young team that is only getting better. It's not like it's an older team that HAS to win now, it's a young team that CAN win now. I love that.
