No place on the top 6. It's the D we need to improve. We need an overhaul.

Am I the only one who noticed that it simply says Gauthier COULD target Boyes? Nowhere does it say he wants him.

It's pure speculation by the author of the article. The thread title needs to be changed...

It's been changed to "Gauthier could target Brad Boyes".

Could target boyes ? We need to get this man arrested.

He'll probably do nothing, as didn't he say earlier he was content with how the team is ?

I don't remember him saying that. I do remember Gauthier saying he wasn't looking to move Halak or Price though.

Am I the only one who thinks Brad Boyes in Montreal would be awesome? The guy is a pure sniper.

I didn't listen to his press conference just before the roster freeze, but a brief summary from it was saying he was fine. I remember making fun of him, because Domenic Moore is really a big piece.

So is Cammalleri, Andrei Kostitsyn, Gionta too and seems to be Pouliot. Brad Boyes is different from what we already have how ?

Montréal doesn't need Boyes, they need a Dustin Byfuglien, or Ryane Clowe type player. David Backes should be more focus from St. Louis than Brad Boyes.

Yes, Boyes is a little physical, but not overly. We need a guy who goes to the net and when he isn't scoring, he's creating energy with hits.

Every night I pray that the Habs send him on waivers. I don't get why it hasn't happened yet.

I will, I will.

On the other hand, I think i'd rather drag him behind the arena of the Bell Centre and end our sufferings.

Yes, Boyes is a little physical, but not overly. We need a guy who goes to the net and when he isn't scoring, he's creating energy with hits.

I do agree that we lack size and grit up front but I also think Brad Boyes brings something else. A right handed sniper shot on the top 6. Outside of Gionta that is non-existant in Montreal. I also think he would be an upgrade over Sergei for now anyway. I would be careful trading Sergei though I really am a big fan of his.

As far as the Ryder comparison I don't see why if Ryder turned into a bum as you put it you would assume Boyes would do the same. Not sure I'm following the logic there.

Anyway, I'm not super keen on Boyes but I do think he'd add some really interesting scoring depth and that right hand shot. I don't have Youtube here but there are a few vids of his that clearly show he is a natural goal scorer à la Mike Cammalleri.

I think some people might be underestimating Boyes a bit.

Boyes has been scoring significantly fewer goals every year since he potted 43, I'd stay away from him especially if were giving up Sergei who has so much potential. Horton would be interesting, though.

these are pretty much our top 6. I dont see where we could fit Boyes. Of course he will help our scoring but hes gonna play on the 3rd line at 4M$, its gonna be a waste of talent and money.

David Backes on the other hand is exactly what this teams needs but i really dont see why the Blues would trade him.

Mueller could be interesting aswell.
and Mueller's value is low right now

Pouliot-Gomez-Gionta
Cammalleri-Plekanec-A. Kostitsyn
S.Kostitsyn - Moore - Mueller
Darche - Lapierre - Moen

looks pretty good

Can't wait to hear the Lil Wayne rap about Mueller and Bueller in the next remix of Forever if the Habs are able to acquire him.
