2012 Free Agents

The Habs currently have $20 Million in cap space going into the off-saeson, but they have to sign Price, Subban, Eller, Geffrion, White, Emelin, etc. But assuming they can get rid of Gomez they should still have $10-15 mil. available. Assuming Parise and Suter won't come to Montreal here's my list of free agents I'd like to see them go after.

Forwards:
P.A. Parenteau
David Jones
Olli Jokinen - Not sold on this, but on a short term deal, he would give us some size down the middle.

D:
Jason Garrison
Filip Kuba
Matt Gilroy
Matt Carle
Dennis Wideman
Willie Mitchell
Michal Rozival
Aaron Rome

Thoughts?

Seriously they're all crap. If we overpay for any of them I'd go nuts.

Suter is a must. I'd be pissed if we don't go hard after him.

IMO 2012 IS NOT the year to go spending ridiculous amounts on so so free agents... I would be a little more patient and open up the chest in 2013:

Crosby, Sidney » F PIT 24 $8,700,000 2013 (UFA)
Iginla, Jarome » F CGY 34 $7,000,000 2013 (UFA)
Perry, Corey » F ANA 26 $5,325,000 2013 (UFA)
Getzlaf, Ryan » F ANA 26 $5,325,000 2013 (UFA)
Staal, Jordan » F PIT 23 $4,000,000 2013 (UFA)
Clowe, Ryane » F SAN 29 $3,625,000 2013 (UFA)

and the list goes on... Right now, it's the deepest UFA pool I've ever seen. Granted there's lot's of time for that to change.

If I was Habs GM next July, I would go for cheap UFA to fill bottom line and bottom pairing on D.

Aim at the cap floor instead of ceiling and play the cheap youngsters.

Suter/Parise are the #1 targets.
Semin if he wants less than his 6M$
Wideman could be interesting on a short term deal.

Otherwise keep the money and tank once more. MacKinnon > any UFA

Yes.

He would solidify our D core so much! Don't think I ever wanted to see a FA in a Habs jersey since Giordano was supposed to hit the market (and never did ).

Between Suter and Parise, I choose the former 10 times out of 10!

It's either Suter and/or Parise, or the Habs will have another top 5 draft pick in 2013. What's on the team right now is pathetic.

Maybe, but you have no way of knowing that. If Anaheim has made Getzlaf available, according to numerous reports, than maybe resigning him is out of the question.

I have a 3 man wish list...

Zach Parise
Jason Garrison
Zenon Konopka

As much as I'd love Suter, I think he re-signs in Nashville.

At forward, McClement is just about the only guy I'm really interested in. Not really any other player worth giving a lot of money and term, just depth signings.

On D, one of Carle or Wideman would be nice, but I'd really like to see some size added, so these signings aren't helping a lot. Move Weber and Diaz to get a big, physical guy who can play the PK (sadly, only Sarich is a really enticing option in that regard) and then we might be able to sign one of them.

Didn't Willie Mitchell sign a 2 year extension with the Kings just before the trade deadline?

Look where that got us. You just described Gauthier's moves going into the season. Glad to see you approve.

Wow, you set high standards. I would be surprised if they sign with any one team, let alone with Montreal who has problems signing even after good seasons.

Crazy not to go hard after Suter and Parise. Suter especially would really be a huge add.

Need an upgrade at 4C, maybe Gaustad. Thought I heard good things about Tim Stapleton.

Would go after Tanner Glass for the 4th line/13th forward.

If we don't get Suter I'd look at Hannan for a 1yr deal.

Rome would be a nice depth add.

Not that I'm saying they shouldn't go after Suter and Parise, but I find it hard to believe any top free agent would want to sign in Montreal right now unless they're giving them a ridiculous amount of money.

I think Garrison is pretty interesting, he has some size and 9PPG goals this year. I also depends on Markov too, I'm kind of under the impression that he's done.

David Jones might be a good fit as a guy with some size that can score.
