Fantastic deal fro the Canadiens.....Love this kid.

Trade Desharnais or Plekanec , Kristo and a 1st in 2014 for Kane! (prefer to send Desharnais)
Sign Semin to a three year 18 million dollar contract
Send Kaberle and Gomez to minors if they can't be traded

Pacioretty Kane Cole -------Pure power forward line------- One of the top lines in the league
Semin Plekanec Gionta ------Speed and talent------ 90 goals from this line!
Bourque Eller Gallagher (ten game tryout) --------- Solid third line------
Moen White Armstrong -------Forth line that can score and shut down at the same time-------

But your cool, cuz you tried to cut me down. It doesn't matter to me. But keep making excuses for only having 3 years of NA experience. When Pleks had 3 years of NA experience, he was outproducing Eller. Oh, look I am right again.

Keep trying to make fun of me though, I take soltace in being right, you can keep making fun of people to try make yourself feel better if that's what you need.

He's confrontational with everyone mac, not just you, you know what to do about it, others already have.

What is this obsession with putting DD on the wing or trading him?!

A guy who never quits, hometown boy, homegrown talent, and you want to get rid of him?!

Excellent cap hit. I love it. I think Eller's ceiling is higher than pleks, I disagree with mac there, but respect his opinion none the less.

IMO Eller will develop into a good 2nd line center at worse. He is already defensively capable.

Are we trading for Patrick Kane or Evander? If it's Evander, then you have three wingers on your top line. Personally prefer Patrick on the wing as well, but he did play centre last season. Either way, your offer wouldn't actually get either of them.

That's a pretty mediocre offer for Semin, he must be really keen to play in Montreal to sign for that. Need to add more dollars or more years to actually sign him imo.

And you appear to have disappeared Brandon Prust. Did he get sent to Hamilton too?

I must say, I like these lines. Still need help on defense. Make some more trades.

One of the most solid 3rd lines in the NHL that year and certainly the best 3rd line the Habs have had in many years.

And he's cheap as ****! In a cap world these guys are priceless. With Eller and DD making pennies and Gally coming up in a few yrs, Pleks is the guy to go. That way we can sign big expensive wingers.

My thoughts exactly.

I figured anything under 5M total would be allright and probably turn into a steal next year. Less than 1.5 per ? Wow!

About Leblanc, I see it that way too.

If his offensive skills are not enough to make him a regular then he can be a defensive cornerstone for sure. He is just so smart out there, using body and position so well, it's not perfect yet but you can see the goodness seeping through !

Great deal for Larry. He and Moen (akost too) seemed to click and be a good friends.

Hopefully he can get 15+ goals again.

Desharnais isn't from anywhere near Montreal.

(I know what you mean, but it's just a pet peeve of mine, sorry)

And the move to the wing isn't about disliking Desharnais, it's because he's the weakest of the Cs defensively. Also, I think he'd adapt better to the wings than Eller has (which is a good thing, I think he's adaptable)

Your nuts if you thought anything under 5m would be a steal. The guy got what he deserved. I just don't get the over inflation on Eller...but this is the Habs you know.

His contract with a cap hit of 1.325M takes up 1.887% of the 70.2M salary cap.

Legit steal for what he brings.

Laurier-Station isn't in Montreal...

But I like Desharnais, I don't think he should be traded, but why not trying him on the wings. I mean that wouldn't be the first center that change position and be successful and he was good playing on the wings the games he has done so.

Anyway great contract, I thought he would be signed for a cap hit of 1,5 to 1,8. I'm a big Eller fan he was pretty good in the playoff and he is a well rounded center with size. I predict a 40-45 pts season for him and I hope he play with better linemates and have at least 1 minute a game on the PP.

He also has a real winner attitude and good work ethic.

Great contract. I expected $1.5M, at minimum and more like $1.75M.

The only guy he's overpaid slightly for is Prust, and from what I gather there was a lot of interest in him.

I don't see what the fuss is all about, 1.3M is what he deserves, nothing more, he don't even have 50 career points in the NHL yet, he's not gonna get 2.5M thrown at him like the people on the first few pages were saying.

It still boggles my mind how anyone would want to trade Plekanec when there is literally nobody else on the team who could replace him.

Anyway, good signing for Eller.

What's funny about the complaining about Plekanec's cap hit is that if DD and Eller continue to improve, without Plek (and his contract) as a reference point, the organization will lose leverage in negotiations.

wow what a steal for the habs!

he plays with grinders for the most part with no pp time and had 16 goals. if this kid wasnt strong mentally he might not be progressing as well as he is.

what sucks this year is he will start off with less offensive help than last year since AK is gone.
