Who's bashing French people? Oh, I see. Hab fans = French people. That would make you the ignorant one, wouldn't it...

I don't want Lecavalier(well i do just not for the price).

Montreal would have to part with Markov+ in a deal involving Lecavalier imo, no thank you!

Agreed. There is no Consideration. I'm not burdened or forced to do anything at all in this situation (or anything that I wouldn't normally have the obligation to do). It is a promised action, or omission of action, that the promisee did not already have a pre-existing duty to abide by. Meaning that a contract needs us to do something or not do something in order for it to be valid. Saying I'll give you $100 if it rains tomorrow is technically not a contract. Saying I'll give you $100 if you run a mile in 4 minutes is a contract. Saying I'll give you a Ferrari if you get an A is not a contract because you're already obliged to do well in school. Saying that if you go to Harvard and graduate I'll give you $1 million is a contract because you were never obliged to go to Harvard.

I took business law like 3 years ago, so my law may be rusty .

Me neither, especially when he's one of the core reasons why some people still attend their games.

In that second stint in the AHL he was scoring at nearly 2 PPG.
Compared to the other names that were being mentioned, yes he is as bad as I am claiming. Of course if you think he deserves being mentioned amongst the likes of Lecavalier, St Louis, Stamkos, JT then by all means

Ok point taken, although I dont think he is that far from Prospal this year (mainly because this year is the off year, cant wait till next season to see good Prospal again)

While they were both here, Stevens was more important.

As long as Lecavalier is on Tampa we will always hear Lecavalier-to-Montreal rumours. Its just a fact of life. I suggest you get used to it, lol.


Hey, as a habs fan I don't like it either. Just a big tease...

If Tampa wins the lottery and drafts Tavares, I can see trading Vinny as an option(having 3 centers, Vinny + 2 which are potential #1s probably not the smartest way to go). The thing I don't get why is it always to Montreal, if the Lightning were planning on trading Vinny, I think there is much better trading partners out there then Montreal(I would be looking for either good young potential all star defensemen or wingers in return, only trading Chip of any value to Tampa would be Price from Montreal)

Neither Stamkos nor Tavares are proven, big-time talents. You stockpile talent, not trade it away. Plus, given how small the contracts for Stamkos and, potentially, Tavares will be, it's insane to move him.

That bum Markov wouldn't have any place in Tampa huh?
