Gagné would be alright at the right price for the 3rd-line. I also wouldn't mind Stewart, Bergfors, or Miettinen if the price is right for one-year and you're willing to switch Kostitsyn to LW.

It all depends on what Gorges gets mind you. Habs have about $6-6.5 million to spend and leave a bit of a cushion under the cap.

I wouldn't say no to Pyatt back at the league minimum either.

I would love Stewart....can play a few roles and would fit in nicely with our team. Still think we need one more "grit" player.....Jacques?

I feel like the Flyers will do something...

Bogosian to Flyers? for Carle and a 1st?

Maybe. I do like Bogosian but I think Philly will hang on to their picks.....they have a good pool of young players and accumulated a few good top picks (1st and a couple of 2nd) and if I was them, I would keep those picks.

Assuming we'll re-sign Ryan White and Josh Gorges and that the current 7 D is the one we plan to use, we have 2 forward spots to fill with UFAs.

It looks like lots of teams are done for the day. Which means Konopka, Winchester, Stewart, etc will all be there when we wake up.

Press conference right now. Dammit I hate how Gauthier always end things so soon. He act like there's a shark infest water and he dips his toes in the water for one second and then say, alright i'm done!

So trading Gomez for Vinny is bad because of math and cap management.....guess talent and productivity and size means nothing in your book.....it is too funny really to continue this discussion.

I'd be shocked if he wasn't still working the phones tonight. A presser doesn't mean he's done, it means he gets the media out of his face so he can work. Why do you always jump on the most negative side of every story?

Year round scrutiny of every move by the player? Yes Toronto has that, and that's exactly why he won't sign in Toronto.

Rangers and Philly don't have that type of rabid media/fanbase.

And its not like he doesn't have subordinates that can hold down the fort for 30 minutes or so.

Wow.

Stewart is worth 1.5 max.

Boulton is AHL caliber

O'brien is a 7th D-man.

I do not agree with your choices.

Because the guy is a walking ghost and I want a conqueror in charge of the Habs.

I mean last year at the Trade Deadline day he gave out excuses that "we can't make trade to get better because with injuries we only have to fill the holes". I mean what kind of philosophy is that?
