Don't think he has any leverage to ask for 4 years. You can be right think to think that 3 might have been what he was aiming for. Still, again, he didn't have the numbers to ask for anything, injured or not.

The only way he would have gotten 2+, would have come from Gauthier if he would have thought that Lapierre "could" become a bargain in the 2nd or 3rd year of his contract based on how good he would have become. That's a risk Gauthier could have gone for. Decided not to.

As fans, we have no idea how really bothered Lapierre was by that ankle this year. Seems that he's 100% now, we'll see what he can do.

'Cause they have more the mentality of "Prove me your worth" than taking risk and predicting what the players will be able to do in the future. There are pros and cons for every strategy. The con of that one is that IF the player ends up doing great.....while benefitting for it, we'll also end up paying for it. More a reactive mode than a proactive one. We'll need to be careful in our "predictions" though...You can't address that to every player of your org.

I'm happy about the Lapierre signing I like his potential! Now if he can just be consistent.

In regards to al lthis AK for Gagne stuff, please stop it!
AK deserves one more year or at least start the season with the Habs. He's big, Can play physical and now doesn't have little brother around to worry about.
AK has a ton of talent and is a potential 40 goal guy. Why give up on him so soon for an Aging potential 30 goal guy who more then likely doesn't even want to be in Montreal!

I dont agree with only giving Lappy a 1-year deal. The habs like giving players 1-year deals until they overachieve, then risk overpaying long-term or losing them to free agency. Lapierre has proved he can be effective in the playoffs when it counts, why not give him a long-term deal at something between 1-1.5 mill?

That's funny because it's the exact half of the team.

1 year contract for complimentary players is the way to go

He played really well for us during the playoffs and it looks like he is finally understanding his role.

having a bad regular season means he deserves a 3 year contract?

This helps him, if he does well he can get more in his next contract, plus he'll still be an RFA next summer so unless he really rips it up, I don't see the big deal.

You need to chill out. Lapierre already has proven that he can play during the regular season. He had a good regular season 2 seasons ago. Plus he showed he could play when it mattered most, the playoffs. And I'd rather have someone on our roster that finally seems to be coming into his own and shows results when it matters.

Besides a 3 yr 3 million dollar contract wouldn't be bad.

Of course...

But the guy was playing with Latendresse and Kosto two years ago as the third line, and it was the best line for many games.

He has the potential to be a pretty good third liner.

Because then people like you are going to complain that we overpaid him if he has a good year.

i totally agree, i loved his play in the playoffs, he was electrifying. I just hope he can show that same effort for 82 games.

So you think Lappy's agent would agree to a 3 year deal at 3M? Do you realize that the 3rd year he would be giving up a year of UFA status? Not saying Lappy would want to leave but that UFA's comand more money, and since he's getting 900K now, seems far fetched to think his agent would go along with signing for 100K more now so he can stay 2 years longer.

Then add bonuses for the 3rd year.

Yeah I understand your point...i would've gone with a 2 year deal..1,8 for 2 years.

BTW, with that signing, we have 20 players undercontract with a 4,743M in cap space. Lets say we sign Carey to a one/two year deal 2Mper, thats 2,743M free. So we'd have 2M to spend on someone via trade or free agency..maybe Andy Sutton for one year at 1,5-2..or any other players in that range. Any suggestions (considering we have 12 forward, including pacioretty, 7 D, 2G, including Price)?
