all i want is another minute eating defensemen. One who can play 21-24 solid minutes a night. Doesn't need to be an offensive dynamo. A good first pass and responsible play would be great.

The only thing is: how many of these types of D men are available on the market?

Andy Greene?
Jan Hejda?
Eric Brewer?

And I'd also take a look at Eric Cole(yes I know he's old and banged up) for more of a tertiary scoring role on a line with Eller. I think he could come relatively cheap. Also, if the expectations stay tame with him he can be a good pick up. He averaged pretty significant even-strength minutes. I think he and Eller could play a really strong puck possession game using their size along the wall.

while I'm at it, i'll just make my wishlist(a semi-realistic one)....I'd be satisfied with acquiring any of the following, even if just one player

Brewer
Hejda
Greene
Higgins
Joel Ward
Eric Cole
Kopecky
Dupuis

Part two of this earlier post here at HFBoards: http://hfboards.com/showpost.php?p=3...&postcount=140

Pierre Gauthier: Answering the Habs’ needs



In part one, Pierre Gauthier: A busy off-season, we looked at the work done by the Canadiens’ GM so far this spring, with the signings and negotiations with some players on the team who are scheduled to become RFA or UFA this summer.

Today, we will have a look at the other options available to the Canadiens’ General Manager. But first, we must determine the team’s needs and that’s where it can get dicey. It goes without saying that deciding on the team’s needs is based on opinions. You will understand that those will be based on my personal opinion and that yours may be completely or partially different. After all, when we see 30 NHL GM’s disagreeing on the value of a player or a prospect, it’s even more normal that fans like us could see things a bit differently.

Under contract

The Canadiens have several players under contract. They are, with their cap hit:

Scott Gomez ($7.357M), Mike Cammalleri ($6M), Tomas Plekanec ($5M), Brian Gionta ($5M), Andrei Kostitsyn ($3.25M), Travis Moen ($1.5M), Lars Eller ($1.27M), Mathieu Darche ($700K), Jaroslav Spacek ($3,83M), Hal Gill ($2,25M), Alexei Yemelin ($984K), PK Subban ($875K) and Carey Price ($2.75M).

I know it's fun to speculate, but realistically, I don't see Gauthier changing the team that much from last year.

We'll have to overpay to acquire Laich, but he adds size and strength to the top 6, which we desperately need

Konopka provides good face-off numbers (57 %) and adds immediate toughness to our team

That leaves Desharnais on the outside looking in, but he'll be the 3rd line center until Eller returns from injury, and then if Gomez is still stinking it up, he might get a look at the #2 pivot spot.

This lineup will also give us a pretty good PK squad

PK unit #1
Pleckanec - Laich
Markov - Subban

PK unit #2
Konopka - Moen
Gill - Gorges

3 lines that can score instead of 1 and a 1/2, and probably a top 5 PP if Markov can play a full season, and possibly a top 5 PK with the additions of Talbot and Handzus (both top PKers on the #1 and #4 ranked teams last season).

Eric Cole put up 26 goals last year, 22 at Even Strength, which would really help a team who got shutout frequently last season, and he had 225 hits. On the top line with Pleks and Cammalleri, he would be able to put up similar numbers, and he may want to test FA to make more than he could with the Canes. Fits 3 needs, size, scoring, and physicality. I'd take him ahead of Laich b/c I think Laich's numbers are inflated playing on Washington.

Talbot is a great penalty killer, and would be a significant upgrade on Pyatt because he can chip in some offense, and even move up a line or two if needed. Same applies to Handzus, a big center, who has turned into a defensive center, played the most PK mins for the Kings, is better than 50% on the draw, and can relieve some of Pleks' defensive responsibilities, which would help Pleks' overall game tremendously.

I'd roll the dice with that defense because Markov and PK would be on the ice for 20 - 22 mins a piece on separate units, and Spacek's role would be manageable for the final year of his contract. Markov's offense replaces Wiz, and PK maybe improves on his output. There is cap left over if they need to bring someone in mid season, but I'd like to see Emelin and Weber get plenty of ice time as well. Pouliot for a prospect or pick, and Pyatt could probably clear waivers to Hamilton if re-signed.

Free Agent talks...

With some speculation a couple a weeks ago when Pierre Gauthier and Don Meehan agreed on a one year deal with prospect Alexei Yemelin, there was some buzz that Markov would also get a contract in the next week or so... well it hasn't happened yet and don't be surprised if it doesn't happen within this week.

Habs that should be signed:

Pacioretty
White
Markov
Gorges

Other Free Agents Habs should look at:

Joni Pitkanen – Carolina Hurricanes
Tomas Kopecky – Chicago Blackhawks
Ryan Jones – Edmonton Oilers
John Madden – Minnesota Wild
Marcel Goc – Nashville Predators
Joel Ward – Nashville Predators
Steve Eminger – New York Rangers
Eric Brewer – Tampa Bay Lightning
Christian Ehrhoff – Vancouver Canucks
Tanner Glass – Vancouver Canucks
Brooks Laich – Washington Capitals

Jones is signed, I believe Edmonton signed him like a month ago(2 years 3 mil). Madden is finished. We already have Tanner Glass, his name is Ryan White. Goc doesn't bring us anything we lack.

Kopecky would be an interesting fit if we don't get a trupe top 6 UFA. Ward also.

Why Montreal does this- Pyatt really isn't a loss as we have guys in the AHL screaming to play, who can also play the PK. Pyatt was indeed a scratch for a few games toward the end of the year. Montreal also gets exclusive negotiating rights to Konopka, in which he said he would be interested in playing for Montreal. Konopka would immediately replace Halpern on the faceoffs, add size, and add a physical presence to a team that desperately needs one.


Why New York does this- I've heard that the Islanders were going to let him walk, so they atleast get something out of him. They get a younger guy who plays his heart out 24/7.


Montreal's lines would look like this (with the team looking like the way I want it):

Pac-Gomez-Gio
Moen-Plek-Cam
Pouliot-Eller-AK46
DD-Konopka-White

Markov-Subban
Gorges-Gill
Yemelin-Weber/Spacek

Price
?



- We resign Pouliot for 1 more year, give him a chance with two youngsters who have tredmendous potential. Sign Konopka.

Now, maybe not this offseason, but this would be Gomez's buyout:

TEXT CAP HIT BREAKDOWN

Scott Gomez buyout from CapGeek.com

■2011-12: $1,801,587
■2012-13: $3,801,587
■2013-14: $4,801,587
■2014-15: $1,944,444
■2015-16: $1,944,444
■2016-17: $1,944,444
[/URL]

- I think it could be worth it. Our forward lines next offseason could be:

Pac-Plek-Gio
Cam-Eller-AK46
Pouliot-DD-Palushaj
Moen-Konopka-White

- And that's just from the start of the offseason.. Once we resign Subban and Price long term, we have a lot of money to invest in a top 9 forward, maybe move Eller and AK46 down to the third line like I think will happen this upcoming season.
Finally an intelligent post, I see everything you just wrote the exact same way. Havent really looked into it but im pretty sure there are some good FA available in 2012-13.

Buying out Gomez is a bad idea on may levels, most of which is that it would be a big hit against the cap for 6 years including a year at 3.8 and another at 4.8 when our young guys need new contracts.

I agree you lol but i was just skimming the post basically loooking at the rosters and implying was i liked about that and our future. Buying out Gomez is definitly not bright, as IMO, he is going to have a bounce back campaign and score 60 points.

Even if he never bounces back, you're better off to ride it out another year and bury him in Hamilton the last 2 years(10 mil) if you can't move him.

■2012-13: $3,801,587
■2013-14: $4,801,587

Having that against the cap in 2 and 3 years will make it hard to sign Pacioretty, Eller, Subban, Price to extensions and still keep decent depth.

100% agree. The buyout hit is a little less if the team waits until June 2012 to buy him out but it is close to what you have here: (2012-13 onward: 4.5, 3.5, 1.7, 1.7).

So if after this season the team is convinced Gomez is toast and they cannot trade him, options are

-Keep him on the roster for 2 years. Salary = 10M, Cap = 14.7M
-Buy him out, replace him with (in theory) a UFA who signed for 2 yrs, 6.5M. Total salary = 16.5M Cap = 14.5M (i.e. same cap hit as just leaving gomez on the roster). Chances are this 2 yr/6.5 UFA won't be any great shakes so you are just spinning your wheels AND have to eat 2 further years of 1.7M less available on the cap.

Sending him to Hamilton and spending that 7.3M cap space on players is the only feasible backup plan if Gomez' presence on the roster is just not doable.

Plan C I guess is that maybe the new CBA will address this to allow teams to sever ties with these albatrosses.

CAP SPACE (22-man roster): $154,491

Desharnais, Pouliot, Pyatt used as trade chips to obtain Troy Brouwer. Probably not all three will be needed. What is left could be used in a pasckage to move Spacek.

Maybe Pheonix, who is desperate for a number-1 centre, would take Gomez?

What's the general idea here?

We don't need to dump Gomez this season. In fact it's probably better we keep him because we have no center depth without him. Hopefully Eller and/or Desharnais breakout this season so trading Gomez next season would be possible. The habs are going to need all the cap space they can get to sign Price and Subban

Tomas Kopecky – Chicago Blackhawks - Would love it.
Ryan Jones – Edmonton Oilers Already re-signed
John Madden – Minnesota Wild No thanks
Marcel Goc – Nashville Predators No thanks.
Joel Ward – Nashville Predators Not physical enough for the bottom 6
Steve Eminger – New York Rangers Not a bad option
Eric Brewer – Tampa Bay Lightning Depends on how much he would want.
Christian Ehrhoff – Vancouver Canucks If we sign Markov, Ehrhoff will just soften our d core up even more.
Tanner Glass – Vancouver Canucks IMO we have better options/ there are better options out there.
Brooks Laich – Washington Capitals Would be awesome to get.

If the habs could manage to dump Gomez, you can bet they'd take a stab at Richards.

The way the contracts are already set up with Moen, Spacek and Andrei on their last or 1 yr contracts. Also if the cap goes to 63m as expected. Next year cap using the 5% cushion will add another 3.15m to the cap. Therefore PG should be able to use the rest of this year remaining cap money to really reinforce the team. PG can give multi year deals if need be. Rumor has it that Gomez is training with Cammy. Gomez knows he had a terrible season. He should have a better upcoming season. Maybe not a 70 pt season but if PG adds another top 6 forward, this team will have more balance and depth and Gomez won't have too.

I've been on the Jagr bandwagon for a while now, but in the last few days I've turned over to really want Brooks Laich. I would easily give him $4M, but I guess Montreal would have to give more than that to be able to sign him, but I actually think he would be worth around $4.5M aswell.

*Only missed 4 games in his last 4 seasons.
*Averaged 53p the last 3 seasons.
*Good size (6'2", 209lbs) and 113 hits.
*Can play both wing and centre.
*Scored over 20 goals in 3 of his last 4 seasons.
*Led Washington forwards in penalty killing with 2:18 min/game.
*Seems like a really good guy that would fit in well with Montreal (ala Gionta, Gill etc).
*Feels like the kind of guy you win with.

But after writing this I can't see why Washington wouldn't sign him...

Anyway, he is my 1st of July dream!

I could see that happening next summer, right now they probably don't have the budget to spend 8 mil on a center. The NHL has no guarantee taht someone will cover the operating losses any more.
