Ok Doc.

Markov should be back something in Feb, and if he isn't back at all this season, I agree that would mean that his career is done, and in that case, we can sign Suter for 6.5M.

Depending on who sings, and whatever interesting UFA's are available, i think LL will probably have good pre-season, will force management to keep him up and will grind his way to being a lock, on whatever line he will play on. Guy wants to achieve big. Was really fond of his adaptability to the NHL game this season, and no way did i predict him even playing a game with MTL, let alone 14 games with some impressing play. Finishing the season with the dogs will probably be enough for AHL him imo.

Now
- Gill/Moen/Campoli to highest bidder
- Kaberle to highest bidder
- Kost/conditional pick (1st 2013 if he doesn't re-sign, 3rd if he does) for Radulov/G.Bourque

UFA signings:

short term, defense is a little suspect, but with Tinordi/Beaulieu/Ellis/Pateryn/Nash all in Hamilton next year, and Bennett/Dietz/Nygren in the pipeline, we have some quality young depth that should be pushing for spots by 2013.

and with an offence like that, who needs defense anyways

Give me a break. Can the people stop whining about Darche, and orgasm on players like Clifford/Winchester, what the hell is happening with our fanbase. Darche is a 4th line guy that works hard and does the little things well. In addition, this year he added block shots to his play and dives more often in the PK especially (ala begin) to block shots = heart and commitment.

Me too. I don't understand the whining about a 4th line player paid 650K and doing his job with heart and honestly.


Maybe folks here are tired to see him on TV. Too bad. There is only two French-speaking guys on that team and DD doesn't give interviews much.

He's okay as a 13th/14th forward but he should never be playing every game for a NHL team. He's going to be 36 next year, he's slow and he's not overly impressive on the PK. I would've rather just kept Pyatt as he's young, has tons of speed and was great on the PK, but apparently I orgasm on players like Clifford and Winchester despite not mentioning either of their names before on this board.

I think they were generally speaking, when talking about ppl bashing Darche and wanting other guys that do pretty much nothing also, ex Winchester. I really don't mind Darche, like you said he shouldn't be playing every game, but I think that has a lot more to do with injuries. I think going into the season he was the 13th forward with White being the 12th, but injuries happen.

In regards to Pyatt. I disagree, I think it was the right choice in keep Darche, he uses his size to gets in front of the net, that got him 12 goals and 26 points last year, pretty good for a 12/13th forward.

Sadly for him, I think after this year, he probably won't get an 1-way contact, and if he can't get one else where, I'd like back with the Bulldogs on a 2-way contract to help some of the young guys coming that will be coming to the Bulldogs next year, Gallagher,Tinrodi,Kristo etc

Over the roster limit, but I think it's safe to assume there will be injuries. Otherwise, LL and BG are waiver ineligible, so they can be sent down temporarily.

The top priority has to be a top 4 dman. Brad Stuart would be good, but I assume he will stay in Detroit. I'm guessing we'll have to trade for a defenceman. I'd expect an overpayment either way.

If we can get AK for a bargain, I wouldn't be opposed to bringing him back, but I wouldn't break the bank. I think we could get by with less offence from that position, seeing as there often isn't enough PP time to go around anyway.

There are a lot of UFA candidates for those bottom wing positions, including but not limited to Moen, Ponikarovski, Tootoo, Slater, Hagman, Fedotenko, Campbell, Paille, Taylor Pyatt. There have also been quite a few useful bottom six forwards made available on waivers this season, I'd expect this to continue. This is a position for bargains.

I'd stay away from Parise, Kovalchuk, Carter. All these shiny pieces either come with overly long contracts, or will require overpayment. We are also somewhat locked into top 6 forward situation. Our 5 highest paid forwards each have a NTC.

Kaberle/Tinordi-Diaz

Is this going to be our line-up? Probably not. But I think this is a well-balanced line-up that basically has no hole in whatsoever.

If I would go major fantasy route, Subban and Plekanec would be traded, 1 with a pick would go to Anaheim's favor for Perry to play on the RW on the 1st line and and the other would be traded for a young future stud at center position, i.e Huberdeau or Couturier.

I like your trade ideas but the posted lineup looks extremely similar to this years team. I think we can all agree that this years lineup is not good enough. Your only changes are to the 4th line and we are not a good 4th line away from a cup.

I am not trying to pick on you specifically because you did then suggest some bold moves. Just seems that a lot of fans are reluctant for change and not willing to make big changes in order to move forward.

Trading a good player should yield a good return as long as our new GM does his job.

The point you make about not having enough PP time to go around is a very good one that people seem to forget when they make up lineup sometimes. But I disagree that it means we could do with less offence from that position, it just means that we need to look for good 5-5 players. That's a big reason I want to keep AK, he'll give you top 6 ES production from the "third line". People are too obssessed with numbering line sometimes, what we need is 3 lines that can produce at a top6 rate 5-5(that's about 30+ ES pts). If Leblanc makes the team and we keep AK he should be the one getting the spot next to him and Eller since it's pretty clear that the organisation wants to make him a winger(and his game fits better there) and as much a love White in a fourth line role he shouldn't be anywhere near a scoring line long term, not over Leblanc anyway(this goes for Blunden too). If they plan on keeping Leblanc in Hamilton, Ruutu would also be perfect on that line. Also, it's the Eller bia in me talking but I don't want Eller end up with something like Blunden and Darche or White, he's proving he can produce at a top6 rate on ES (on pace for 30+ without PP time and that's counting a long stint where he was playing with only grinders since AK was either injured or on another line) and he's clearly reached the point in his devellpment where he deserves better than grinders and plugs as wingers.

I would have to agree about not being a fan of signing big name ufa. The exception I would make is for Sutter since I feel tend to feel safer with dman, especially defensive dman.

I think you make a lot of good points.

Regarding big UFA signings working out more often with defencemen (Chara, Rafalski, Gonchar with the Pens, Niedermayer...) - something I agree with - maybe it's as simple as dmen hitting their prime later than forwards?

I also agree that 5 on 5 production is very useful deep in the lineup. It just becomes a question of budget, at a certain point. The way I see things, the Habs have already overpaid on their top 6 forwards, and have a need on the blue line. Kostitsyn is definitely a better player than, say, Repik, Taylor Pyatt, Ponikarovsky, Omark... but if he costs 3mil more, forces the team to take another skilled player off the PP, and the Habs go into battle with a 2nd pairing of Emelin-Diaz, is the team in a better situation than if they go cheap at his position?

I guess the other consideration is, how fast does the team think Leblanc and Gallagher will be ready for the top 9? Maybe Palushaj also gets another audition?

Not bad. I kind of like the 4th line, it's a true 4th line... not like ours with lame players like Darche.

- I don't see Plekanec and Desharnais as similar players, at all.

- IMO, Plekanec and Eller will be considered 1-2 sooner than later.

- The other 1-2 combos in our division are Krejci/Bergeron, Connolly/Grabovsky, Roy/Leino and Spezza/Turris. The Penguins and Red Wings' situations are extremely rare, and required a lot of luck.

I don't think AK will cost 3M more than a good bottom 6 player if I look at what those kinf of guys got last summer. And signing him doesn't force us to take anyone off the PP, he only gives us another option. AK is a player that usually get about 45pts a season. If his prod was something like 20-25 ES and the rest on the PP I would agree that keeping him doesn't make that much sense but it's not. His prod tend to look more like about 35 ES pts (and usually good for 15 ES goal too) with the rest on the PP.

And I really don't know what they'll do with the D and we probably won't get an idea until we know if Markov is okay.

About Leblanc, Palushaj and Gallagher, I think Leblanc is the best option on a scoring third line. He looked pretty good this year and I think he could manage close to 30 ES pts playing with Eller and AK. If we play him with grinders on the fourth line he won't, but with those two this seems more likely.

I think Gallagher gets at least one year in the AHL, probably a couple of callups the following year and he'll be there full time when Gionta's contract is done. He looked good in preseason but I don't know if he's ready yet for harder opposition.

As for Palushaj, I don't think he got a good chance this year, he was never going to be the kind of player who shined on a fourth line and I think it's pretty hard to say what the organisation has in mind for him.

Personally the goal I would have in mind with next year's lineup would be to have all top 9 foward capable of reaching at least 30 ES points. It gets lost in the middle of a bad season but a positive from this year is how we've become a much better 5-5 team, it's the powerplay that has sinked us. And luck, since we actually get our chances on the powerplay but somehow happens to be the only team in the league with a worst % on the PP than on ES (wich is ridiculous and pretty rare).

Let's say for a top 9

Pacioretty-DD-Cole
Bourque-Plekanec-Gionta
Leblanc-Eller-AK

People will say it's almost like this year's line up and we suck so...
But if we can fix the powerplay (And I know people are sick of hearing that but the % shouldn't screw us up as much next year so just that should help a bit) that is actually a pretty good group 5-5 considering that:

1. Well it's a lot like this year and we are actually good 5-5.
2. At the beginning of the year alot of the other lines had to sacrifice scoring (remember that Darche-Eller-Noke line playing against top lines?) to give softer minutes to the Pac-DD-Cole line, it may seem stupid but having them able to handle tougher minutes than they did at the beginning of this season will help greatly in the case of injuries, on the road etc.. putting them against soft oposition wil be more of a luxury than an obligation.
3.Cammy for Bourque, I don't know how Bourque will look for the rest of his contract (at least the caphit is low) looking at his previous seasons he seems to be a pretty solid ES producer while Cammy was maybe more a PP guy.
4.Leblanc is the question mark to hit 30ES pts but if we look at comparable last year Eller had 17 ES pts. That was from the fourth line with non-top 6 talents and low minutes. (Altought I think more than half of his prod came in the 20-25 games he played with AK and Moen ). I think Leblanc can get at least close to 30 playing with Eller and AK, altought maybe having a rookie there means Plekanec has to take the harder minutes wich we at least know he is good at.
5.There is no way we can lead the league in man games lost to injury halfway trough the season again next year, right? I mean we could, but

I agree with a lot of your post, especially that our PP and injury situations are bound to improve next season.

If I'm AK's agent, I think he can get a contract comparable to Leino's on the open market, $4.5mil/yr. A home town discount might be around $4mil/yr.

Last season, I look at Gordon, Halpern, Reasoner, Pouliot, Torres, Fiddler as solid depth forward signings for under $2mil/yr.

You could switch Moen with Blunden but they would both then be on off wings... makes a better line-up, though. So, that would be my team... too busy to look up numbers and I know it's probably unlikely to sign Weber but whatever... just for fun.

Dustin Penner??? No, no and no.

Also Pacioretty-Desharnais-Cole needs to be together.
