I read on the Leafs board (what the hell was I doing there?) that Lindros is pretty much signed. The sources are on the Leafs board

Extra years as options (player or team) aren't allowed in the new CBA, as I recall.

granted, they have a different style, but I don't see Sykora producing more in MTL then Zednik did. This is what I was thinking in my comment.

Samsonov is also a playmaker so Kozlov on the line with Kovy would have a different role. The line of Kovy, Sammy and Kozlov would be enetrtaining.

Sykora played like a soft Zed last year.

Samsonov is a viable option, and he has been productive when not injured. In this year's postseason, he was injured and still produced. We still need to round out our Top 6 which is looking pretty bad at the moment. Our prospects still need polish, they are too raw. And Perezhogin needs to learn or remember how to finish before he can hack it. Even now, he's in the nebulous zone; third liner but not really since he's not a checker.

Sykora; if he's to perform, it needs to be a one year contrat. He needs to find his game again. But if he does, it'll be the biggest bargain ever because he's one hell of a warrior... when he's on.

Kozlov: Underacheiver, yes, enigma, yes, worse than Ribeiro... no. His skillset is quite amazing, has good size and is deceptively fast. Big problem, he dissapears for months at a time. When he gets it together, he makes Kovalev look like a pee-wee (I exagerrate barely). But he almost never does.

Kozlov is a big Forward who is definitly more of a presence on the second line than anything we currently really have

May be it's me but I don't remember any signle shift when Kovalev and Kozlov played together

Ribeiro and Kozlov skill wise are kind of the same except Kozlov has a better shot and hes 6'5 and shoot right...come to think of it id give him a one year deal, trade ribeiro and bring up Grabovsky next year.

I have no problem with a guy like Kozlov or Carter for 1 year. These kinds of players are perfect (for 1 year) for a team with a lot of rookies that still need to try and make the postseason. Another teams will always be interested in a veteran type during the year on a 1 year contract. If you see your young players are progressing to the point where they NEED more ice time, it shouldn't be difficult to move a guy like Kozlov or Carter (assuming they have performed at decent levels).

1- Samsonov : I'd pass.Already have too many small forwards like him.I'd rather see Perez , Kost or Latendresse in the spot instead.

2- Sykora : Coukd be a decent replacement for the Z man even though i'm not very high on him overall.

3- Carter : Wouldn't mind him if the price is right.Scored 33 goals last year.Would be an good replacement for the Z man.

4- Kozlov : I have read too many horror stories about this guy from Florida and NJ fans.I don't think that it would be a good idea at all , especially if he wants a long term contract.Only way he could be interesting is if he accept a 1 year/low money "tryout" contract.

5- Lindros : Do you want me to go on a rant ?

Not much interest in most of them, but Kozlov would be interesting short term. Lindros, though, is a different story. Gainey is too smart for that. Besides, my hatred for him was complete when he signed for the Leafs - homecoming for the big momma's boy - please don't destroy that.

Must say that Shanahan is the guy that will fit the best the Habs needs in offense, he's big, has a good shot and, the more important, he stays in front of the net and provides loads of goals in PP...
