I'm hoping Carey Price will advise them on some of the pitfalls of being a single Montreal Canadien.

Like that crazy-sexy girlfriend you had in College, this city can love you too much.

Good news!

Damn I wish I was one of Anna's favorite Gally's (especially the one that is not the brother)

Eller trade?
Honestly its rare that a team doesn't have at least one injured player...Don't need to worry about that right now.

That's Bergevin's problem

Personally I think Nokelainen should center the 4'th line and be our face offs specialist, move White to wings. And place Armstrong on waivers, although armdog might have a strong influence in the locker room as a motivator and Therrien loves that, whereas Nokes is the quiet leader type.

Eller is going to be taking Pacioretty's spot on the DD line, so we're okay for about 2 weeks there as far as experiments go.

I liked Weber yesterday, but was it enough to dethrone the almighty Kaberle from a regular spot? I don't think so. The best option is to rotate them in and out of the defensive lineup, that way we can increase the value for Kaberle at the trade deadline, while Weber still gets learning minutes at his natural position.

When Subban signs, I have no clue what is going to happen. That will be an interesting issue.

Surprised they didn't add "see it all unfold on 24CH next week"

'gratz to the Gallys!

Only applies to Galchenyuk. Gallagher is on his first year regardless (NHL or AHL)

Good news for the Habs, and great news for both of them, they've been playing at NHL level so far this season, it would have been a shame to send them down.

Oh... awesome..

Or is it?!

You do realize we'll have to resign both of them at the same time...

With bridge contracts

Yes in 3 years from now and plenty of players will have been gone by then and signing them won't be a problem

Galchenyuk's ELC cap hit is over 3M with the bonuses. Considering the Subban 'bridge' issue, the younger Galchenyuk burns ELC, the easier it'll be re-signing him to that bridge since he will be 21 and likely not established as a top line player yet.

Prust and the Gallys. All season long.

I think quite a few lines in the Eastern conference are going to be very pissed after games against the Habs.

While I still would have preferred to have Alex burn his 1st year of eligibility on a full 82 game season, now that the decision has been made I will be looking forward to seeing what the Gally's continue to bring and their development. Grats Gally's!

The sooner their ELCs burn out, the sooner we can lowball them with bridge contracts.

Pretty sure 1 of Kaberle/Weber will be moved (hopefully for another 2013 pick) once Subban signs, but like others said, the odds that this team will ever have a fully healthy roster - ESPECIALLY in a 48 game season - are slim.

Congrats to the Gally's. We better see them getting the news on 24CH.

I expect a lot of giggles and a bro-hug between the Gallys.
