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!
Enough with the 40 goal potential for AK. 4 years with the habs, 2 in hamilton, 2 in Moscow and he reached 25 goals once.
Who cares...it's Lapierre..
I don't see anybody crying over the fact Boyd was signed for a year. Likewise for Pyatt.
900K/1y is a great deal and it will add to the cap space Gauthier is giving himself for next summer.
Anybody realize that PG will have a lot of money to work with next year...??..
I care deeply, and became overjoyed with tears.
Never noticed the money thing, can acquire someone at the deadline with an expiring contract for a push too. That would be what a 6 mill salary or so. If we have about 2.5 million free. Which is just a guess assuming price signs for under 3 mill this season.
It's still twice as much as Price deserves, considering the kind of contract Halak got WITH arbitration rights.
Wouldn't be that hard to try and find an upgrade on Kostitsyn (Kostitsyn+ for Gagné?). I'm not a huge fan of Quebec-born players, but even if there are injury concerns with Gagné, there are just as many if not more with Kostitsyn. At least, Gagné would bring even more speed, and a good two-way presence with 30 goals potential to our lineup.
That's like Bertrand Raymond, but inverted... as worse.
