Tanguay

When is Tanguay going to be back? I'm going to the Kings game on the 31st (Fight Night (GO GSP!!)) I was hoping to have the roster all filled up for that game. I have absolutely no clue as to when Tanguay's coming back. So will I see him? If not, when is he going to come back?


Thanks

(P.S. BJ Penn is gonna get KTFOed!!!)

Martin McGuire said, last week, that the Habs are not expecting him back before March.

PJ thinks Tanguay will be the odd man out when he's back from injury.

He also thinks he's most likely to get traded with Higgins : ...ahhh PJ..

The canadiens would be stupid to trade Tanguay.

I'm not sure you keep it once you waive it.

I don't see Tanguay being trade though, his impact is bigger than some people give him credit for.

Tanguay has great playoff experience and cup rings. No way BG would trade a guy like that heading into the playoffs.

PJ has to say sensational stuff to get listeners and make his show entertaining but you'd think a guy who's been around as much as him would understand the value of experience.

Tanguay is a pro. He hasn't exactly lit it up lately, but he's been there. You can't replace it. No way D'Ago, Stewart play in crunch time ahead of him.

Kost - Lang - Kost
MaxPac - Plek - Kovalev
Higgins - Koivu - Tanguay
Kosto - Lapierre - Lats

really? cauase Bob McKenzie has mad a a name for himself by just saying the truth and being very accurate in his assumptions and thoughts. All these qwacks that try to be outrageous to acquire viewers don't get the respect in the end and rarely last, or reach a level of a guy like McKenzie.

Tangs is going no where, i have a feeling he will be very important in the playoffs. He has been there and done that.

Koivu and Tanguay were our best duo early on. They were the reason we went 10-1 at the beginning of the year.
Koivu got injured and the lack of production on other lines forced Carbo to separate them, some players have an easier time to adapt to new linemates. Koivu adapts quickly, Lang kept producing with every player this season, Kovalev takes time and Tanguay might be another one that takes time.

But once he's back from injury, I'm sure he and Koivu will be dominating again.

IMO, Tanguay is only on the outside looking in if we get Lecavalier.

He's still got like 3 weeks to go ? Sadly, won't be back for the LA game, bud.

You have to wonder about these hockey personalities sometimes... I can forgive them for going with rumors they know are in all likelihood fake, because it gets people listening.

But when they try to analyze the team's situation and come to the conclusion that Tanguay will be the odd man out, you have to wonder why they were hired in the first place.

There are few on the team less likely to be traded than Tanguay.

1) He's one of the few guys on our team who actually has a Cup ring. There's Kovalev, Brisebois, Dandenault and him, and two of the other 3 are not locks to be in the lineup on a nightly basis. Hell, Tanguay even has a Cup winning goal.

2) I'm pretty sure he still has a no-trade clause (that is, the Habs agreed to keep it after trading for him).

3) Even if he doesn't, he agreed to waive it to come here. Now, this isn't a road block to all trades, but for a team that needs all the help they can get to attract free agents getting rid of a guy who wanted to be here in the same season you got him doesn't exactly send out the right message.

4) Who would we trade him to? Trading him to a contender, the only teams who would want him seeing as his contract expires in July, would hurt us in the present all the while making a potential opponent stronger. Meanwhile, the teams we should be trading with have absolutely no interest in paying a guy a chunk of money to end the season there and bolt come summertime.

5) Did I mention he's actually a very good hockey player?

Has there been any updates on Tanguay? Getting him back soon would be big with Langer out.

Some people have forgotten what Tanguay brought to the table while he was healthy. Of course he had a slump, but before that slump and even a bit after , he was one of the most consistent fowards in the team.

Nope, last news was on January 27th about him still being 2-3 weeks away. This means sometime between February 10th and 17th if everything goes well.

I would guess we will have more news in about a week from now, as it's been exactly 5 weeks to the day since he got injured.
