my pick is Tanguay with his big one year contract he will have high expectations especailly if Sundin doesn't sign here.

If Koivu takes a bad penalty, it will be him. If Kostitsyn takes a bad penalty, it will be Koivu's fault for not being enough of a leader.

I'm hoping to see Dandenault get the **** out of here.

Lats will stay and score over 20 goals this year. Bob Gainey wont make the mistake of letting him go.

On the other hand, if Patches pulls a Sergei and looks too good for the AHL, Lats becomes a hot trade bait.

Sundin.

Seriously? Gorges is going to become the new old whipping boy.

Pacioretty has played at most only 42 games in one season, he needs to get his body accustomed to an 80+ games schedule. and a lot of GM's would gladly do a 'John Leclair' deal to get Lats and Gainey knows that so i dont think it will happen.

Two years only of NHL experience and 32 goals before turning 21 playing with mostly offensively untalented players and we'd want to trade him?

No way.

I'd say Kovalev. But it's ok, I just think he'll get less points but there are many other wingers to take some of his production on their shoulders.

Interesting considering it's an 82 game season. But even if that was the case the Montreal press would still find something to gripe about.

Inaccuracy aside, some Hab fans would still complain.

Well, it's 16 more wins for the SC. It's true that would give the Habs a 98-0 season, but I think the league would probably award the Cup after 96 wins. It's probably written somewhere in the rule book, or maybe the CBA.

Saku Koivu will be run out of town around Dec 26th on Christmas Day he "only" recites a 5min intro to the fans completely in French when the media and some fans complain that he could have done more, like write a book about the geopolitical climate in Quebec and translate and revise the 2007 edition of the Brittanica Encycopledia from english to french.

Hopefully BG learned his lesson with Ribs. Pleks is good both ways. If he was dished the puck more he would score more.

My early favourite.... Lats. `

Dandenault, Latendresse and Begin. I would put Koivu on that list if he performs the way he did last year.

i think it will be tanguay, if he doesn't perform early on, he will feel the heat real fast.

I think there is no doubt it will be Dandenault, but if doesn't do anything to attract attention to himself in the press box it will certainly be Begin who will soon after find himself alongside his buddy. Once they are both off the ice, your guess is as good as mine.

For the same reason, I'm going to go with Sergei Kostitsyn. Hope not though.

Kovalev could be a whipping boy if he doesn't do as good as he does last year. Wait till we start to hear that last year was a fluke and he's back to his old self again.

And then all that talk about letting him go UFA, he's not worth it, we shouldn't give him that big contract of his....

I obviously don't think it will happen, last year of his contract, he'll do good. But if for whatever reason, it doesn't work that way this year.....watch out....

And Koivu will be his share of the same comments....too old, we should let him go.....
