Is Dandenault really worth 1.7 Million???

Im starting to realized that the HABS overpaid dandenault. He reminds me of brisebois in some games . if we need to get rid of one player, its not BONK, but rather Dandenault.

I am wondering if you signing up to these boards was a mistake!

j/k

honestly though, at times he looks like he might be out of place, but then again, like about 3/4 of the habs they turned around there game 2nd half last year. So really we have to wait and see what dandy we get.

No, he's not worth the money, but so is almost every single UFA defenceman of the past 2 years...also, some teams were ready to give more money to Dandy.

Anyways, at the end of the season, Dandy was pretty good, and he was awesome in the playoffs...if he can put it all together for a whole season, the 1.9M will not look that bad...

He is a good addition to the lineup.... like the other poster said... a UFA will get what he deserve + a little money cause he is UFA. So it is ok.

Dandenault + Bouillon were our best duo for the playoffs. Markov and Komi on the other hand, didn't step it up.

I didn't think he was deserving of such a contract last season but after seeing some of the contracts average defencemen have been getting, I now think it was a very good deal.

Based on the regular season (especially the first half where he had major difficulties adjusting to the new game (and maybe the year off)) he's not worth it. But based on the playoffs he had, I think he deserves it.

Agreed his playoff experience alone is worth the money. He knows how to win and that is a missing ingredient on this team.

Dandenault was the best Dman available for the same salary at the time he was signed. He wasn't a failure, so why carp about it now? Is someone better than Dandenault available to the Habs for the same money right now? If not, button up and post something more constructive.

Players coming from winning teams tend to get more money too...Martin Lapointe would be another example...

When scanning over the dollar figures UFA d-men have received the past two offseasons, I would say Dandy's contract looks O.K. to me.

From the olympics on, Dandy was worth every penny of that contract.

We're lucky to have him at this price if he continues right where he left off.

Usually, when you hit the age of 30 when you have 11 seasons under your belt, you make alot more than 1.7mil.

In agame that promotes speed and mobility now, he's just that much more valuable. Granted, it took him a bit of adjusting period to get those lazy hooks and trips out of his game, but he seems like a bargain to me now.

Hummm... Did you watch the playoffs ? Dandenault was playing like a franchise d-man... Damn he was intense and hitting like he can do.

He was good in the last 30 games. Yeah he deserve 1.7 millions for his work, leadership and playoffs performance, its cheap price for a average good 4-dman who win the cup.

Dandenault is better value than the overpaid Pavel Kubina and Bryan Mccabe on your Laffs.

There's something sick about an apostate who defiles his former beliefs. But don't declare a fatwa against Zon, faithful Habs fans. Something tells me he'll flunk out of medical school.

It was a lot at the time. Mark Eaton just got a deal for almost that much money, though. Brian Pothier got a ton more. Etc. It looks like the UFA market massively overtook us there. As long as he plays more like he did in the latter stages of the season (doesn't even have to be as good as he was in the playoffs, I doubt he can keep that up) then it'll be good for us. The pricetag for UFA defensemen isn't going to go down. Having him locked up for 3 more years might save us the pain of having to sign somebody even less impressive for even more money for a while. And it might nicely bridge the gap until our own D prospects start to step forward.

I could write a whole bunch about this...but all I really have to say you switched teams because of fried chicken and overpriced signings.

Now that I think of it, I have a nice piece of bottom land I could sell you for cheap...just don't ask me what its at the bottom of

i think we pay him fair money for today's nhl,
but i don't like having that kind of team on our D squad, either be offensive minded or sut-down opposition, i don't like these average over-all, Rivet passes the test but he's much better to start, Markov is also both.... I think if we want a better we need Defensmen that excel in a certain way( Komi in front of the net, Souray on the pp...) i'd trade Dandenault for someone who can pass the puck very well.
