You can protect only 7 habs... Who are they?

Hi,

Just for the fun of it, I was thinking.....

Let's say there's a draft for 2 new clubs coming in and you can protect only 7 players from the current Habs roster. Don't bother about AHL players & prospects in the juniors they're all protected....

I chose seven, because it gets interesting after the first three which are obvious.....
Think of players you want to build your team around, salaries, etc....

Price, Subban & Paccioretty are obvious choices..... then it gets interesting...

Cammaleri is one I want to keep.... he's a killer in the playoffs....

Plekanec is another one.... he's not a superstar but he can do everything on the ice

Josh Gorges is a keeper for me.... a strong leader who works his ass every night.

Lars Eller would be my 7th choice. This guy is coming on.... he looks like becoming a bigger Plekanec for me..

These are my 7 choices.... who are yours?

I don't think that's exactly how it works, but okay.

1. Carey Price
2. Max Pacioretty
3. P.K. Subban
4. Lars Eller
5. Tomas Plekanec
6. Josh Gorges
7. Andrei Markov

PS. I think healthy, we are Stanley Cup contenders if we had signed a guy like Scott Hannan over Hal Gill. A guy who lays the body and plays a good style of hockey.

1. Price
2. Subban
3. Pacioretty
4. Eller
5. Pleks
6. Scott Gomez.....LOL I totally couldn't write this with a straight face
6. I'd have to say Gorges
7. Cammalleri only way I trade Cammalleri is if we are getting solid value that we can build around in return.

My honorable mention has to be Markov, followed by AK46.

I know we've been trying to trade AK for the longest time, but assuming we actually get a #1 ppg center and Pleks goes to the 2nd line? or Pleks is no longer in our plans and Eller is our 2nd liner, or if Eller becomes that PPG #1, it would do wonders for AK, he already has quite a bit of chemistry with Eller.

Gorges is UFA at the end of the year, would be a waste to protect him. He can just leave the team who takes him and come back here in July. Only reason I protected Cammy is because he has high trade value. I don't think he's a guy you build your team around.

Then protect someone else, and trade Cammy before the roster freeze.

Considering contract:

1. Price
2. Subban
3. Eller
4. Pacioretty
5. Plekanec
6. Cammeleri
7. Cole


Gorges would likely be in the mix but he's a UFA after the season.

No one is untouchable, but my top 7 keepers would be :

Price
Markov
Subban
Pacioretty
Plekanec
Cole
Eller (by a hair over Gorges, basically because he's young and the other one is a soon to be UFA)

Agree I can't believed we did not go for him. And we have 1.5 mil more left on the cap. The exact player missing on the blue line.
