Add O'Byrne and Gorges and our defense cost 24 000 000$

That's a lot for 6 players. And you need a #7 D-man too.

I don't think Komi is scared of anyone and he hasn't been in the past. Why would he have to fight anybody if he doesn't want to? He's the one that went after Lucic because the team was losing and looked terrible. If anything he needs to let go of Lucic and concentrate on Savard, Kessel, Bergeron etc as they are the ones beating us.

I can't see trading Plekanec plus 2 good prospects for this guy. The only way I'd do it is if he had a decent contract and we had a contract signed with Sundin.

Right. but that gives us a awesome defense.

we might not need Kovalev, Lang next year and Begin, Dandenault, Bouillon, Brisebois and kostopoulos are all gone. A total of 16 000 000$ that can be use for guys like D'Agostini, Chipchura, Stewart, to sign Plekanec, Higgins, Komi, Koivu, Tanguay and Latendresse.

Id do plekanec halak and Obyrne for JBo. Would suck if he didnt sign with us though. Make room at forward for Chipchura, D'Agonstini or the like

Me neither, but he brings way more to the table than any of the guys you named, so numbers are pretty much irrelavant. Few more points, but more solid in his own end, and can eat up big minutes.

You got to think long-term. Price will probably get 4-5M at the very least in his second pro contract. Sergei will get a raise too, this will be very hard to fit all of them under the cap.

That would leave us with huge holes up front and in the net. No thanks.

I agree. People are too quick to blame him for the team's underperformance while others get a free pass. I think if we can get him at a reasonable price for 2-3 years, keep him.

JB is good at both ends...not great at either aspect. He has great physical tools but I don't think he is super dedicated or thinks the game very well(doesn't read the play like Markov).

I think if you offered Plekanec straight up Florida would jump...but I`m not sure that really helps us. Kovy will never have the year he had last year with Lang.
