Plekanec will leave ...

Hi ,

We are now less than 3 week from july first and plekanec is not sign yet. I think at this time , he will wait to see what he can get on the UFA market.......And obviously some GM will give him the money he want .


Plekanec will be hard to replace , but still good ridance ( specially if he asked more than 4,5 M$). That means we loose an other good player for nothing.....Did it worth keeping plekanec to get to the ECF ?

Slow down a bit here, Gauthier and Pleks might already have a deal in principle, and are just looking at other roster options to free space ect.

If I were Pleks I would wait and test the FA market, I won't lie, but I think Pleks is a hab through and through. I could be wrong, but I suspect a 4 year deal to him in line with Gio, Gomez, and Cammy

That's not mean we won't sign Plek but don't be shock if he receive something like 5.5 millions a year, Gauthier will have to make choices and he don't have alot of options

I know it will be really hard to replace him but i'm tired of his play in the playoffs or lack there of so I really don't care if we resign him. But I doubt we find any replacement near his talent

I don't see the habs signing Plekanec before the draft. They probably have plans to try to trade for a top-6, they want to see if they can do it before settling on Pleky.

Plekanec camp have "le gros bout du baton"(don't know how to say that in english) They know what Plek can have on the market and Gauthier will have to give him the money or pass on him

Except that Plekanec wishes to stay in Montreal may actually be legitimate. It's the only place he knows.

Reportedly, Plekanec's camp demands are very high, in the order of 6M. I really don't see Gauthier giving him this kind of money. If they don't change their position, pursuing other options become more interesting; it may involve a trade, but it could also make our team better than we are with Plekanec. All this will have to wait for draft day, or around draft day.

Ouch, I guess he could aim for close to 6 on the market.

Habs should run a covert negative campaign throughout the league. The «little girl» comment alone should bring his value down to under 5... plus add the fact that he wears a turtleneck at all times and you get an acceptable contract at 4.5.

I bet you Plek want to stay if they can pay him, the thing is at July 1st after Marleau he is the best center available some teams will throw alot of money at him

Habs might not give Plek 6Mill, but someone gave Gomez 7 a year for a long time, so someone is going to be shellin' bucks to Plek.

That someone is Glen Sather. He's notorious for being an idiot July 1st.

Gotta make a move for that big centre. Potentially, Carter, or Staal could be available, but you'd have to pay. If we did get Carter for one of the goalies, I'd do a ****ing backflip.

I don't know if have the wingers that would interest Pittsburgh for Staal.

If faced with plex at $6m or kovalchuk at $7.5-8m, I'm taking kovy assuming he wants to come.

El cloun. So your milleage may vary. But anyway, it's not important, because we still almost have a month left. Plekanec's agent could be asking for the moon on purpose.

He calls himself El Cloun because he is one.

I like Pleks, but we have Gomez --- too much of the same.

Plekanec + Gomez locked-up down the middle for 4 years min. = 13 M + = poo poo

Yeah, Sather's wallet has a huge hole in it, but come July first, there are so many dumb GMs with millions to spend, if I were Pleks, I'd have dollar signs rolling back in my eyes, and wait till the monster offers flock like the salmon of Capistrano.

He has to get himself into the social pipeline first.

Well then let's agree to disagree. I don't think any GM will pay him more than Crosby. Fortunately, until he signs, we re both right

You are nuts. He's got 9 more years on a deal and he is in decline.

I would love to say that Pleks can take his 6 mil request and shop it to some other sucker - but you know what, some idiot GM will give it to him.
