Regardless of Gillettís financial situation, the Montreal Canadiens are an extremely lucrative business and should have no difficulty whatsoever taking on Lecavalierís monster contract. The only thing that would give the Canadiens pause would be Lecavalierís impact on the salary cap.

Wow. Stop the presses ... I agree with Larry Brooks

Well, at least when it come to the nhl draft lottery proposal. What a great idea to give the non -playoff teams a shot. My Sabres had the most number of ping pong balls coming out of the lockout (tied with Pittsburgh and NYR). Of course, Pitt got Crosby, NYR got Staal and we got Marek Zagrapan. :

Those results non-withstanding, what a great show it would be to have a lottery each year.

Seeing as how most of the players are UFAs, the Habs should have no problem absorbing the contract. Plus, I can't see any new owners not wanting to take on the contract seeing as how everybody in Montreal thinks Vinny is a God.

The habs will make money regardlessly. Why would he want to spend money then?

The report over here in the UK is painting a bleak picture of Gillets situation

Even in North america we are to believe that Gillette is in financial difficulties currently. He is rumoured to be selling the Canadians as well.

If Gillet's financial situation is so bleak that he has to start cutting payroll from the Montreal Canadiens in order to stay afloat, heís going to have to sell the teamÖend of story. If he is indeed in dire straights then selling the Montreal Canadiens might be a good option because a lucrative business like that is going to attract a lot of attention on the open market. Ultimately, I just don't think the ownership situation is going to have any bearing on whether the Canadiens acquire Lecavalier or not.

Part if his problem is how he financed his take over of Liverpool, there is a reported hug debt on it

That is really how the economy works. Most of these billionares have little liquid assets and are heavily invested in debt. To say that the Habs can't afford Vinny because Gillett may be in financial troubles is like saying Liverpool wont be able to afford to keep Torres. The Montreal Canadiens are a financially sound organization and are going to spend to the cap regardless of player's contract situation.

He is assuming that Tampa gets the first overall pick I think because if they do and get Tavares they have

Tavares,Stamkos,Lecavier,Prospal,Malone

You forgot St Louis and Downie.

Malone VL4 St Louis
Stamkios Tavares Downie

Stamkos did play wing with Tavares in the past.

I think it is less a case of him forgetting Downie and more a case of Downie sucking too much to be mentioned amongst the guys he was listing.

St Louis has been by far the best player on the team this year and Stamkos has taken off with MSL and Malone as his wingers for the last few games.

agreed I was just thinking of possible the lines for next year

Prospal VL4 St Louis
Stamkos Tavares Malone

Is not a bad top 6

It certainly looks much better now that you have taken Downie out of it

Downie isnt as bad as you are claiming, in the time he had in the NHL, he showed he had some chemistry with Stamkos, showed that he was decent in the corners and as a playmaker. He isnt a top 6 player yet, but he could possibly become one. The only reason he was sent down the the AHL was to get 20 minutes+ a game rather than 12 minutes and so work on his conditioning. In that second stint in the AHL he was scoring at nearly 2 PPG.

If Tampa wins the lottery, I could see them maybe being open to moving Lecavalier. Stamkos, Tavares, AND Vinny doesn't make a whole lot of sense. Then again, simply drafting Hedman does. I suppose it depends on the return. Whatever Montreal offers plus Tavares would have to > Lecavalier plus Hedman.

1.33/24 = $.0554/hr

Tampa Bay isn't guaranteed to win the lottery, and it would make more sense to go for a defenseman with their first overall pick.

Maybe we should all sign a petition saying if Lecavalier isn't traded at the draft, we want Brooks to make a 0.23 cent donation to the HF boards for ever poster who read his blog and wants his or her money back. It wouldn't be a large sum (500 names would only amount to about $1.15), but it would be funny to see Brooks called out and interesting to see if he actually paid up.

We will see after the lottery result,if the Bolts are drafting 1 or 2, I can see them trading Vinny and rebuild with all young players + Stamkos and either Tavares or Hedman
