I was thinking about that lineup too but I'm not so sure that we want Kovy and Kovy on the same line. Kovalchuk would have a lot more chances on a line with Koivu and Tanguay IMO.

We don't need Weber up. Dandenault and Brisebois can share the number 6 spot. The Habs could also deal a guy like Begin or Dandenault to get a number 6 elsewhere.

I'd rather keep O'Byrne if possible, but this guy is definitely not the same since he was injured in a fight last season.

Not that I disagree with what you said but I think that Weber could learn a lot this year in the NHL. Sure, he will make mistakes but he showed in preseason that he's not far from the big league.

Hamrlik would be the ideal partner for him. Weber isn't the same kind of d-man than O'Byrne but IMO, he will be better than him in a near future and for years to come.

Honestly, if BG can get more picks for begin and dandenault, I'll be fine with that. Those two want to play for the Habs, but I feel that we should let them go.

Would be nice to get Kovalchuk without breaking our key core player group, but its almost improbable that it will happen.

Kovalchuk would be perfect for The Habs.
I don't see how Gaborik doesn't fit into our system.

You need to be playing to fit in a system.

What I get a kick out of reading is how some on here say they'd forgive Gainey for dealing some of their youth to acquire Kovalchuk. News flash - Kovalchuk is only 25 years old. If that's old, then the league is in a lot of trouble.

If i was Gainey i would wait a couple of losses until i do a trade, with a standing of 8-1-1 we do not need a trade yet for sure.

The organisation promised us a superstar player for 2 years and they couldn't land one even if they tried hard. Expect Gainey to be pre-t-t-t-y agressive if he is available. As long as Markov and Price stay, I could live with any departure. I just don't want to overpay too much value wise. Could be our superstar for 10+ years. We don't have much chance drafting one of his level. I say go!!!!! Prospects are prospects...we have too many good ones anyway???? Why not throw 4 young players/very good prospects and/or Picks at the thrashers???? What's the point of great drafting if we let 3/4 of them rotting in the ahl? Or leave as soon as they can? Let's upgrade skills and size up front and ADD a top ten player in the NHL at 25 freakin years old. Gaborik, I'd be considering getting him for less than he is worth and I would need to be assured he is signed first at a DISCOUNT price. Or I'd pass. But Kovalchuk. We actually CAN throw a really good/great package at the thrashers. It's not like the prospects don't keep on coming! I don't see Timmins/Gainey become morons anytime soon!

LOL Kovalchuk is the new superstar flavour of the month going to the Habs?

As Krusty the Klown sez before they cut away to a room full of chimps at type-writers: "Who writes this crap?"

This is the centennial season and the Habs brass promised us a superstar for more than 2 years now. And they tried REALLY hard. Why would they not try to get Kovalchuk or any other superstars???? The fact is THEY REALLY TRY TO GET THIS DONE! (Hossa, Sundin etc...) Why would this be crap??? You obviously are not a habs fan and know nothing about the organisation. Be prepared to see lots of these until we land one, buddy. Because every superstar/great player available, we will be up there trying hard! Deal with it!

That would be very unproductive. Mr.Pug Hog Senior with Mr.Pug hog Junior.

Only difference is that one player is consistentely productive and the other isn't.

I'll let you guess which is which.

Kind of like Kovalev and Andrei Kostitsyn, eh?

do you think a package of Higgins+Chipchura+Dandenault+Fischer would do it for Ilya? Dandy is throiwn in there just for cap reasons because i believe atlanta would need to take on some salaryy in return

I do not think its enough, Kovalchuk is not UFA at the end of the season.

Higgins is a good start but i am sure Atlanta will want one more key player.

Also if they want Price or Markov its is a big NO, all the others could be dealt.

Being a long time (since Richer) since we got a 50 goal scorer for the Habs.

Also i have a feeling Kovalchuk will explode with us, i imagine him with Koivu+Tanguay... ouch !!!

That might be true... If only one of them wasn't a 1000+ game veteran.

Kostitsyn will be more productive than Kovalev when all is said and done.

I would not say that Kovalev is a puck hog. Sure he like having the puck but plays the give and go well.

Yeah you got me. I've only been a fan of the Habs about 45 years

Let's just say that about once a month somebody is rumoured to be going to the Habs or being pursued by the Habs. The fact that in many cases there is no cap room or the price is too high seems to get lost in the shuffle. Sometimes they make no sense at all.

You have to be realistic about these rumours, because that is all they are, rumours (check out the title of the thread). It is the media not the club making those statements

Meanwhile sit back and relax
