2 things....one of my Q man crush Antoine Roussel already have 5 goals. I tell you...if we would have had some serious Q scouts, there's just no way we would not have handed him a try/contract. The guy was a pinball machine giving some of the hardest checks I'd seen. And skating like the wind. The offensive ceiling was obviously questionable. And he might not keep it going....but we should not have missed on that kid. Just for the record though and for people who'd say "we're not the only ones who missed (actually Bruins were the first team to gave the guy his chance and didn't feel he was worth it...), well I say, again, that to this day, there are still teams that aren't interested in that league. And we should concentrate in making it a league were some gems could be found which means better scouts and more present. I believe that's going to change with Bergevin. Let's hope so. And I'm also please to say that my Patrik Berglund obsession was a legitimate obsession. Already 11 goals for the kid. Patrik...it's about FREAKIN time. Now you can pass the puck too if you don't mind....

And just to be sure that we are human....I can't say that MY Sergei Kostitsyn isn't doing too well right now...

We can't sign every Quebec prospect there is. Roussel is hardly a big "miss" a 5'11" 190lbs energy player.

Thanks.

Kind of hope that the Avs don't offer him a contract, so that he can sign with the Habs.

Holy **** Getzlaf for 8.25 million/year...

If we go after Perry, I really hope he doesn't cost anything like that.

What was weird in this article is his direct "attack" about Georges Laraque's unusefulness. I hope he won't met Georges next Summer in Montreal..

If getzlaf can make that money, perry can even have more. But I guess he will re-sign with Anaheim for that very same amount Getzlaf got. like Crosby and Malkin in Pittsburg, or Brodeur and Stevens back then.

I see no reason for Perry to not stay in Anaheim.

The Ducks are only spending 55mil on this year's team. Next year Getzlaf, Fowler and Fasth are getting raises. Maybe Hiller gets moved? I'm not sure what the ownership situation is like in Anaheim, not sure if they are in a position to spend more on next year's team?

Aside from Anaheim's budget, there have been reports that Perry would like to live closer to his family, but I don't know how seriously to take those...

Their ownership has never spent more than 60 M on payroll, usually right around 55 M.

I expect Perry to get atleast what Getzlaf got and maybe even a little more if he hits UFA and teams start throwing offers his way. Perry is really gonna cash in after what Getzlaf got today from the Ducks..

Stupid GMs are stupid. I'm happy we have Bergevin now.

Yes. Perry is going to get more. My guess will be around 9M for at least 6/7 years. It will be too much of a contract for the Habs. I think it's safe to say that we are not going to see Perry in a Habs uniform.

'Cause that's EXACTLY what I meant...to sign every Quebec prospect there is.

A 5'11 energy player that might actually be a very good middleweight fighter and "might" have some 10-15 goals scoring seasons? Yep...I wouldn't mind those.

I can't ever picture that high of a salary for a player on our team, that would be hell. If the player does not reach PPG or is not always in contention for an award at seasons end then it would be a bloodbath with the media, not to mention our "quick to flip" fan base.
