Im pretty sure these are not the lines for the team right now, and last seasons team but if they were, which line combo would you rather have?

I just forgot to say that I would take Cammalleri/Gomez/Gionta. I think they can score more goals than Tanguay/Koivu/Kovalev but they are most certainly smaller in size.

Who the hell cares? Seriously... Gomez is bigger than Koivu and Gionta/Cammalleri play like 7" giants compared to the wuss that is Tanguay. This leaves Kovalev, who struggles mightily.

Before I made this poll, I kinda already knew the Cammalleri/Gomez/Gionta line would win but I just wanted to know what some people thought but so far 10 - 0 in votes for the Gomez line.

Tanguay/Koivu/Kovalev for that small stretch at the end of last season was brutal.

Koivu is really slowing down and he is now a borderline 2nd line center, Tanguay is done and Kovalev is... well, he is Kovalev!

Is this a serious question?

Polls like this are kinda stupid, the salary that the Koviu line would take in would be marginal, and you would essentially be able to another top 6 forward.

It's also something you get in exchange for a 1st round pick...

The Alex Tanguays

Males of this arctic tanguay species have both an inflatable skull hood and nasal balloon. When aroused, angered or simply showing off, male Alex Tanguay can inflate their sacs that are a foot or more in diameter. The nasal balloon can be inflated through one or both nostrils and is bright red. Unfortunately, due to global warming affecting the arctic environment, Alex Tanguays are now considered by many scientists to be endangered.

Go Go Gomez line !

There should be a poll option that says "Do I even need to answer this, it seems pretty obvious"

hmm lets see:
Gomez, Gionta, Cammalleri = 18.4 million. With all that money tied up in those guys, cap issues means what you see with this team is what you get for 4 more years.
Tanguay, Koivu, Kovalev = 10.75 million and there is no long term commitment there.

Would have been nice to re-sign those guys and add Cammalleri..

And no commitment on the ice either, aside from Koivu.

The 18 mil you talk about is overblown. Gio and Cammy could easily be traded. The cap alarmist diatribes are becoming quite pedantic and dull, and especially quite overblown. All teams would rather spend to the cap and you actually NEED to fill the roster.

Yeah... pretty easy to say now.

Habs fans would have been crying all summer long that we didn't have any 1st line center.

One way or another, I'll keep our core. Koivu is a great leader but he isn't the player he once was. I would like him to finish his career in Montreal as the 3rd line center if he could sign at a discount. It will not happen but it would be great!

Option #1 is at least interesting... although the contractual elements of it are only speculative, it at least would give us the potential for improvement over Option #2. With risk, of course.

Somebody posted that the old guys have 20 fewer points. But they also have only $5M in salary committed past this year, compared to $18M+ x 4 years. 20 fewer points isn't a lot. The holes in Tanguay and Kovalev's games in particular make me think that there's more of a downgrade than just the points.

The playoff race is already close, so probably there is enough difference there to ensure that we wouldn't be in the playoff race if we had Option #1 in the lineup instead. But the tradeoff to that is that we'd have $70M to play with over the next 4 years, and a higher draft pick. Possibly enough money to find even better players. Possibly a better odds of a stud player in the draft. (And possibly not).

I dunno. If this team does miss the playoffs, however, or gets bounced hastily, then the attractions of Option #1 are enhanced.

I think you're one of the best posters on this board.

As usual I agree with you. At least with option 1 we aren't stuck with bad contracts for the forseeable future and we still might've snuck into 8th with them as well. You're able to look at the big picture here and I think a lot of folks don't consider this.

The weakest link in this discussion is Tanguay. I wish Gainey hadn't given up a first and second for him. Unlike some former Habs, he's done nothing with his new team to show up Gainey's decision not to re-sign him. If Gainey had simply dropped Tanguay and replaced him with Pouliot the Habs would be no worse off than they are now but would have had more money in the bank and greater flexibility in signing free agents.
