5 M cap hit.

Agreed, he's not an ideal fit. But this could be a good buy low situation.

So Clarkson in 2013, then drop Gionta and go after Callahan, Brown, Datsyuk, or Malkin?

Sounds easy enough.

Perry was never really a realistic option anyway. I think the priority needs to be to lock up the young guys we do have first.

I'm kinda happy that perry re-signed just because now there's no chance the bruins or leafs get him.

He'd probs be worth 9m on the open market...although it would sting, I don't know if I would mind him handicapping the Bruins or Leafs salary cap for 8 years. Personally I don't think he'll live up to his contract after 3-4 years...he turns 28 in two months, same with Getzlaf

Glad Perry signed. I'd rather not have him at that cap hit

I wonder how cheap we could get Jagr? Although I have a feeling that would never happen based on him saying he wanted to sign here and MB not being interested to begin with.

in response to #2 I agree. MB will play it safe an acquire solid pieces, but won't go for the homerun until he's ready. Montreal is in no rush to sell the farm or break the bank. Our depth and our prospect pool are solid enough to allow us to wait until the right opportunity. I think you're also right about Gionta. When he goes, they'll make a splash with his 5mil.

Plus, we've been fooled by anomaly years before. I'd rather see this team compete consistently and do well in the play-offs before we start selling picks and prospects for players.

I agree.

And if you're looking to trade/sign, try to identify a player that has yet to reach his full potential so that you don't have to overpay.

I'd be curious to see what it would take to land Kyle Clifford from LA... At this point, i'd like to aim for sandpaper and grit but with someone who can also contribute playing hockey.

Prust is the prime example of the type of player I'd be trying to get.

They would probably want our 1st since they do not have one. Even then, I am not sure they would do it. Guys like Clifford are so hard to find.

I don't want anybody....top player would cost too much , we have enough depth at the defense.

I would consider a better 4thliner but not enforcer ( wait until this summer for that )

I'd like to see more toughness on D and maybe a FO specialist but depth on D could be nice too. Maybe Ian White for a late round pick. He's getting scratched in Detroit but would be a better option than Kaberle or Weber arguably.

We can easily pick up Jagr at the deadline if the price is right. And we should.

Lapierre and Lats I would definitely approach in the off-season, homeboys who've grown a lot since leaving. Damn Jacques Martin.

They aren't good enough to make the HABS this year. Maybe Maxim is better than Armstrong but that is it, Lats couldn't play on this team is he so slow/lazy/soft.
