If our centre position was anchored by a little more high-talent beef, I'd think of putting him on the third line - eventually fitting between MaxPac and S.Kost or something, leaving Lapierre, Moen, and whoever (White, Pyatt, Desharnais, take your pick) to hold down the 4th line. Gross misuse of his talent though, and a fairly inappropriate role. And the Habs would likely have to give up a bit much for a player they end up slotting in a 3rd line.

Then we would have 3 of the top 6 picks from the 2005 draft.

Price
Pouliot
Brule
just missing the 3 real good ones

Perhaps yes, but there was more talk in Montréal circles about Pouliot and Brulé. Kopitar wasn't as well known as the kids playing in Canada. As for Price, Timmins was thinking about the long-range needs of the Habs at the most important position on the ice. Huet was seen as only a temporary fix, and Halak was an unknown at the time of the 2005 draft. Gainey must have agreed with Timmins.

Timmins gave Gainey the choice between a potential franchise goalie in Price and a potential franchise dman in Marc Staal.

Why the hell would we want Brule or Cogliano, as has been speculated???:

Cogliano: 13pts. this year - has not been injured.

Brule: 25 pts. this year, has never bettered more than 45 since in the NHL.


WE DO NOT NEED ANY MORE SMALL, UNDERACHIEVING FORWARDS WHO ARE "EASY" TO PLAY AGAINST.

Go for broke Bob - make a deal with your old pals from Dallas:
MORROW, OTT, RICHARDS, ARE NAMES I WANT TO SEE IN MONTREAL. Give them Gomez, A. Kost, Dags, and Price (we will take Turco).
Do it.

And btw no. We don't need another small but speedy and skilled forward in the top 6. We need some size and grit , not more of the same we already have.

Why is it so hard for Gainey to understand (even if it's just a rumor) ?
LOL, some people dont have a very good sarcasm detector.

You should know HFboards is the most sarcastic place known to man

Here's one Brule who would get it right:

Mark Staal will never be a franchise d-man. He is a solid stay at home d-man, who can chip in offensively, his prime could be like an Adam Foote type.

It's good but not the upside of Price and Kopitar.

Speaking of the '05 draft, assuming he'd come cheap..I'd love to give Jack Skille a shot in Montreal.

6'1, 205lbs winger, who I was pretty high on going into the '05 draft. He hasn't had much of a shot in Chicago, and I think he's another player who would benefit from a change of scenery.

I see Eklund is keeping the Montreal board entertained.

That Montreal is interested in Brule thing makes no sense, unless he's a throw-in.

Good job!

I like Brule and would love to see the Habs get him. He may not have the size we need, but he does play with some feist to his game. Or at least he did. Maybe part of the reason why he was getting hurt. But still, I'd rather have Brule than Cogliano or O'Sullivan. I'd dare to dream of something better if I was going to trade Halak, though. I mean, it's not impossible that, something like Pouliot, Brule could explode his way back to his original draft potential. But if I could get a player where the "could" didn't have quite the same emphasis in the sentence, that'd be preferable. Brule and a 2nd? Hmm. I might take it...

It's funny how fans/media always focused on some players that are not really fitting the habs just because they have a french sounding name. Same thing with the Mcguire for GM, because he's media friendly and because people know maybe 2-3 popular names that can be GM in Montreal.

According to HB, Andrew Ladd left Chicago practice today with no apparent explanation. Seems like a guy we could use.
