Antropov isn't tough and for being 6'6 he plays like someone who's 5'10.

The Habs are like those lawyers who have adds on late night infomercial TV...

"Are you soft? inconsistent? underperforming and overpaid?

Then call Bob "The Hammer" Gainey! I won't stop until you have a 5 million dollar deal! I WILL NOT REST until you have the contract you don't deserve...

Antropov would be a great fit depending on the contract.

He may not throw his body around with authority but he sure knows how to use it (i.e. protecting the puck, board work).

Haven't CKAC mentioned the Habs being interested in like 90% of the UFA forwards so far?

Renaud Lavoie report that it's not Montreal interested in Antropov, it's Antropov that would like to play in Montreal.

NYR should give Habs Zherdev as well. They can have the whole Rangers line.

Exactly, once again, the rumor is false.

Apparently, Antropov wife loves Montreal. It's unconfirmed right now if the Habs are interested but Antropov would definitely be interested to play for the Habs.

Unless Gainey is going to go with plan Z, I don't think it will happen.

He needs to keep the focus to sign Beauchemin, Havlat/Gaborik and Kovalev/Tanguay. If he can only sign one of the last four, I think (hope) that Gionta would be next on his list. Then (I hope we won't be forced to go there), Antropov could be an option but not at 5M$ per.

Well maybe we can get Antropov at a discount if he (and his wife) wants to play here.

Antropov at $3.75M for 5-years would be fine by me. And not as a Plan B.. the guy is a good player. Even though he's slow, if you watch him, he works hard. He digs, he goes to the net, and he'll play in front of the net which is exactly what we need. Size. He's got it.

Some nights, it looks like he doesn't care... I really hope that Gainey will look elsewhere and take him only if he doesn't have any other options...

Definitely can see him going there, especially since there's nobody else signing there.

Apparently, there have been no discussion between Montreal and Antropov (according to his agent).
