Maxim Lapierre - Arbitration eligible

Do you think Lapierre will take this way to sign a contract ? He has until 5pm today to decide that. If yes, what players are comparables for salary?

Lapierre is a good fight away of being a Neil

Well Talbot is a Stanley cup winner. The comparison is decent but I think Lapierre is a better skater. Talbot may have a better scoring touch. Seams like a good call....0.9-1.2

I can handle that, as long as we get playoff Lapierre

Lappy did crap last year. I'd go to arb with him if I was PG and have no worries. Worse comes to worse and he wins, the Habs don't have to sign him and he can try to find that price elsewhere.

he finished the season strong and was great in the playoffs, he needs to stop acting like dumb pest and get back to the game he played 2 years ago, fast skating hard hitting game

Lapierre should try to avoid arbitration as he doesn't have a lot of legs to stand on if he thinks he is in line for a big pay raise after last season.

what did Pouliot sign for? Lapierre is just about as effective.

I wish we signed our young players to multi-year deals to prove our faith in them.

Lapierre 3yrs/4m would be pretty awesome.

Too much. 7 goals, 7 assists, minus 14 last year. Awful, awful season. Aside from 2 goals in the playoffs he did nothing. No way he's getting over $1 million. He should be signing his QO and be happy that he got qualified.

Too much. Overpayment in the short term.

Everyone is quick to blame the Habs management for handing out short term contracts. But it's the players (agents) that want short term. Max will get a crappy salary this year because he did nothing last year. They're not going to lock in long term after that season. Now if he goes out and scores 20 goals next year somehow he'll get $2 million a year from arbitration and will be damn glad he didn't sign a long term deal now. Lapierre has absolutely no reason or incentive to sign a long-term deal. Expect another one year at $700k.

Dustin Boyd has remarkably similar career stats and played far better last season, and has a greater ceiling. He just signed one year $600,000. Please explain why Lapierre should get any more than that.

Lapierre's salary last year was $800,000, so I expect to be at least that.

The thing I don't get is why some of the borderline/fringe guys even bother. I mean, some of those guys are just lucky to be in the NHL and should be falling all over themselves to take their QO's or whatever money their team has to offer up.

It is a business, but... I don't know if an extra $100k or whatever it is they think they might get could ultimately be worth risking making themselves pariahs to their teams?

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. Agents.

What happened to the Lapierre that had 214 PIM in Hamilton...
That Maxim will get 1 million.

Chicago Blackhawks
Antti Niemi

that one should be quite interesting. rookie goaltender who brought his team to the cup. He has all the arguments on his side. I'm guessing he'll try to get something along what Cam Ward got.
