it's not good or bad... just reaffirms that any thought of getting him at sub-5M$ is HIGHLY unlikely.

I wonder what the multi-year deal would have looked like? 3M? 3.5M? hard to imagine anything more than that...

could've, should've, didn't... thank you St-Bo.

I could just imagine the smile on the face of Pleks agent after seeing this, All I hope is that PG doesn't match any crazy offers from other GMs. Le gros max should be 5.5 and to anything more then 4years i'd expect around 4.5 per year.

If not then " hello Marleau! would you like to play musical chairs on a line with Cammy this year? ”

I had no clue he was UFA! That's wild!

This is me getting off the Volchenkov wagon and sitting on the Michalek wagon. (Though I'll still be jacked if we nab Volchenkov)

I think we should go after one of Martin, Volchenkov or Michalek.

That'd automatically bring sexy back to our line up.

Step 1: Let Plekanec go if he wants more than 4.5. Which he most likely does.
Step 2: Trade based around Halak for Pavelski.
Step 3: Offload Hamrlik and/or Spacek for whatever we can get.
Step 4: Sign Michalek (Or Volchenkov)
Step 5: Sign Evgeni Artyukhin
Step 6: ??????????
Step 7: Profit.

Hard hitting and hard shot from the point of Johnny Boychuk would be nice in the top 4 too, and would be more affordable than the ones you mentioned.

If we could shed Hamrlik and Spacek some how and have the following;

Markov - O'Byrne
Subban - Boychuk
Gill - Gorges

That would be a nice D.

If Montreal can't sign Plekanec, they should go trade mode and get Patrick Sharp from the Hawks as he will be a highly sought player this summer with the Hawks needing to shed salary and the Hawks only want prospects in return, no salary.

People think he won't be available, he will be as he is older than Versteeg and Big Buff and will net a higher return.

Sharp as the second line centre with Cammarelli would be sweet, more added value in leadership and affordable.

While that's all fine and good,

Markov-Michalek
Subban-O'Byrne

-OR-

Markov-Volchenkov
Subban-O'Byrne

is just ridiculously delicious.

It is, but I wouldn't pair a young player like Subban with O'Byrne who is still getting his feet wet. OB played almost Komisarek like at times when paired with Markov. Subban with a good defensive type like Volchenkov or Michalek would be wise and better.

With our dire need for size and skill in the top 6 to assist our skilled small players I see the money a Volchenkov would command spent there first. Meaning if we could shed salaries like Spacek or Hamrlik we would only be able to afford a 3-4 man like Michalek or Boychuk.

...
1. Plekanec is worth more...5 atleast is very reasonable for him (especially comparing him to Gomez)
2. Trade our #1 goaltender?
3. Trade one of our top 4 defence for nothing?
4. Over pay another d-man like we did with Hammer and Spacek.. how long til we trade them?
5. People have gotta stop having a boner for a 4th liner... he will fix no important issues

lol @ the Volchenkov dreamers.

We couldn't afford to keep Komisarek last year, Volchenkov isn't even in our pipe dream range.
