Unlike you, Gainey and Holland are good judges of hockey talent.

Same here, although I do see how Erat can be a very appealing top 6.

Kost Bros, and our 3rd, for Radulov and Erat

I think Nashville was said to have offered Belak for S. Kosty. That's how BAD they want him.

Yeah,

I can say Chris Osgood - who has won - let's see is it 3 or 4 Stanley Cups?

Fact is......Osgood has won more Cups than Gainey's Habs have won playoff rounds!


GO HABS GO!

You're right. It has nothing to do with playing on the most dominant team of our era, nothing at all. Detroit is so good because of Osgood, who needs:
Lidstrom
Rafalski
Kronwall
Ericsson
Stuart
Datsyuk
Zetterberg
Holmstrom
Franzen
Williams

From what I understand all those players are dead weight that Osgood is carrying. Bunch of floaters!

So in the end I say with great humility, you're right, Osgood is carrying the Redwings. What was I thinking!?

Have you thought about rooting for the Redwings instead of the Habs?? You seem to like their team better then the Canadiens.

I would settle for Hamhuis, a very reliable d-man + a conditional pick.

Isn't Hamhuis an UFA after this season?

When did I ever say that Ozgood is carrying the Wings?

Yeah, Ozzie has had tremendous talent in front of him - not exactly his fault!

I have never said or implied that Ozgood was another Patrick Roy
- all I said was that Ozgood was a good enough goalie to win multiple Cups - Hell, Gainey's Montreal teams can't even win multiple series (even over a 6+ year stretch)!

I have seen great teams not get very far in the playoffs because they lacked good - or even adequate - goaltending......not so Detroit.

Ozgood may not be as good as Roy or Brodeur - but he has proven to be better than any thing Habs currently have in goal!

And no - I'm a lifelong Habs fan - I just appreciate good hockey - and wish the Hbas could be half as consistant as the Wings at winning!

I'd love to see Erat beside Plekanec. And Legwand would give us serious depth at center.

That being said, Nashville wouldn't give either of these guys up for either Kostitsyn or both.

No. With the way Radulov left the NHL his rights are worth less than Sergei Kostitsyn. At least with Sergei you know he wants to be in the nhl.

Price couldn't win backstopping a dominant team(see: habs vs. Philly - the worst goaltending playoff performance of all time!).

Osgood is more successful than Price will ever be.

That dominant team couldn't score against Martin Biron.

Osgood is an average goaltender at best. The fact he plays for the most prolific hockey team of the past 15 years has EVERYTHING to do with his success.

He was horrible when he played for the Islanders and the Blues. He was a backup until the Wings were up against the cap and had no choice but to play him. They sent him home last year for several days because he was playing so poorly and this yeat he has been nothing short of terrible.

As for him being better then Price, let us not forget he is 22 years old. Most goalies don't develop until their late twenties, mid twenties for the really good ones. So for Price never being as good as Chris Osgood well you must not watch much hockey. If Osgood was on the Canadiens now he'd be worse then Toskala. Even on a great Detroit team that's defensively responsible he's getting lit up like a Christmas tree. Is he always being left alone on defencive breakdowns? All the time! Can Price play better? Absolutley!

I'll take Price over Osgood any day of the week as would 30 GM's in the NHL, save for maybe Milbury who would trade him for Osgood.

Right now before trading anyone we should bring up Sergei and give him say 25 games to show what he could do,then mid season if both don't perform I wouldn't mind if Gainey looked to see what is out there in return for them,but at least give him a last chance,I'm sure he could still help this team out offensively

Getting sergei back here is something we need to do. What if he has a fire lit under his ass and ends up being a legitimate contributing top 6/top9 forward? I believe we have nothing to lose, in fact, it'll raise his value on the market at worst.

Pacioretty and andrei are playing slightly better than they did when the season started .... but chipchura/stewart/dagostini ... they have been terrible ... just awfull ...

dagostini is like Casper ... you never know when he's in or out of the lineup ... barely touches the puck once... or twice ... it happens fast, between Brunet saying ''guillaume'' and MAB falling on his ass... unfit for bottom line duties and not good/determined enough to be top 6.

stewart and chipchura ... well when I see them play in their own end, I really wonder what they have to bring to the table ... pp?,pk?... they struggle 5 on 5.

meanwhile plekanec alone is providing secondary scoring, with the help of metropolit and moen...

go all in with sergei ... he can't possibly be worst than Dago ...
