I would like to know where players stand in the fans eyes. Post your top 10 guys on the team (in order) that are a must stay.(Unless in some cases it's a mass overpayment of coarse) Prospect don`t count except of D'ago because he is with the big boys has we speak.
Here is mind
Kovalev has slowly been going down my list but I still have hope for him
With the chemistry he showed early on with Koivu, I think he's a lock. Canadiens style of play obviously fits him better. Montreal seems to need a quebec born superstar...and i'm guessing Tender won't be it...(This is not Latendresse bashing, it's just the way i see it)
Tanguay is a very good hockey player and hes playing really well with Saku,so if we are going to re-sign Koivu,why the hell wouldn't we re-sign Alex?
I see where you are going with this but my argument would be that production has been good but in traffic is where I'm concerned. But he is not that type of player.
Also, I'm not sure if he will be worth the ticket that he could possibly get or ask for on the free agency market.
His pay is over 5.25 a year and I dough that he would take less then 5. So 5.5 to 6 a year is a lot for a good 2 way player with little grit.
