With the cap increase.. I'm more than happy about this! Guaranteed same top 6 as last season plus Eller. Very good imo.

I guess it could have been worse. We need some more size though.

5 ****ing million...after his disappearing act for most of the playoffs.

No one would have given him more than that on the open market, disappointed the Habs didn't push for 4 or 4.5.

I like the guy, but I'm not entirely sold, and this is big money.

It'd be nice to get a more physical winger to play with him and Cammalleri now... was hoping it'd be closer to $4.5.

I wish we went for Marleau, but that could have left us with nothing, which was obviously unacceptable.

Good job Gauthier. Fine deal.
His playoff stats are what worries me. He's great and I'm VERY happy he's staying.. but 5 million? 4 mill would have been right for me.. ATleast it's not 6 million that's what I thought he'd get on the market.


I'd rather have him then Marleau though.

This guy is only going to get better and better with the Habs....now we just need to find him another winger (Frolov) to play with him and Cammalleri and he'll put up 90 points a season!!!


I'm very happy today....this helps make up for the awful Halak trade....a little bit anyways.

If we can surround him with a Gritty forwards he will look that much better.

Let's say that Plekanec signed a 5 year deals and Gomez is here for 5 more years too... So Eller is our third center for 5 years? Comon...

Excellent! At the very least PG was saying the truth about the Halak trade being cap driven for good reasons. Now if we could only off-load one or several of Hamrlik, SK or AK, we could have Moore back and perhaps a bit more cap space to play around with at the draft.

It's hard to convince people on this board... Eller will start as a winger! There's much less responsibilities and much less pressure in a winger role.

With Plek and Gomer signed long-term...seems like Eller will be that big guy on the wing in our top 6.

Do all the people who are whining realize A. This is Montreal, we have to overpay, and B. He's the top center available, and a lot of teams needed a center..

I'd think so. Or having 3 scoring lines might not be so bad.

Eller can play left wing as well.

overpaid by 1 million, but at least Montreal could focus on other priorities now that Plekanec is signed. Price will be next and gauthier will make some moves that he knows how much cap space he can maneuver with.

Great news!

5M is about market price as an UFA.
I believe he would have been offered more money elsewhere on July 1.

Let's hope it's not for 10 years. Five years would be fine by me...
I'd be okay with a limited NTC, but anything more than that would be too much.

He's had 20+ goals in the last 4 seasons and has been a regular for 5 seasons. He would easily of gotten 5M if not more on the open market becaus there's not much out there this year. But who cares if no one would give him more, we have nobody to replace him with.

How about Gomez our 3rd line center when eller gets better? Whichever one is out performing the other one... We have 3 good centers now. Lets get the fourth in Moore!

4.5-5M was my ballpark. 5M is fine by me with the cap being higher. I'm fine with people saying he's 0.5K overpaid, but it's not a huge deal at all. I like it personally, he was the only option barring a trade which would have cost assets.

Plekanec is a homegrown player that is a hard worker who doesn't create waves and accept whatever job he's given. He fits well in Martin's plans and has chemistry with Cammy.

Glad to see you back gangsta.
