If Lecavalier signing in MTL causes a parade atmosphere then people really don't watch much hockey. He would be the 2nd or 3rd best center on the team.

No sense in trading for Letang. Yes, MB has stated that you can never have too many D, but he also states that he wants to look within the organization first.

Lecavalier can only be signed next week.

Could possibly be the draft. It would cost an arm and a leg, but imagine if they got their hands on Drouin? Woah.

Letang makes no sense, next season we'd have to pay both Subban and Letang around 8 millions each.

We do have enough defensemen, problem is, we need BETTER defensemen.

Vinny may not be a star anymore but he's a very solid player and it blows my mind that some people can't see what this would mean for many people in Quebec. I'm not even really from there besides heritage and I even understand this. It'd be huge.

He also sent me an interesting article.

One interesting thing to quote from the article was this...
Patrick Roy might be interested in Desharnais, no?

Tinordi & Beaulieu are getting better...much better...and hopefully Pateryn continues to make strides to get better at the physical game, he & Tinordi together could be an awesome shutdown pair if he brings it...I have a ton of faith in our D-system...

This is true, but we also have defensemen that will likely only be getting worse with age.

Cube was only signed to "reward" him for his effort and to be the 7/8 depth guy who keeps the pressbox warm, same with Drewiske...and I'd start shopping Markov now, he's valuable right now...and if we got the right offer, Diaz as well...

Also Cbj have what? 3 picks in the first round?
Im sure they would top an offer that includes our first and 2 seconds for the 1-3 overall spot.
CBJ needs to fill their prospect pool. Not impossible that they try and move up, but I would think they would rather stock up on multiple first round prospects instead.

"If Habs can pull __ off this weekend"

Many Habs fans haven't stopped pulling off since Vinnie was bought out.

That rumor doesn't mean anything. Whether we land Crosby, Letang, Drouin or anyone depends on the price we pay. To have a parade, we'd have to land a dominating player for scraps. The only reasonable likely possibility for an almost unanimously positive move would be signing Lecavalier for cheap on a 2 year contract.

Or trading with Feaster

Forget Drouin or anyone else in the top 5 (or even top 10). However, Bergevin has enough playing chips to move up 5 or more places in the 1st round. I just hope he doesn't use up too many of them because the Habs also need more depth.

I don't think moving up 5 spots warrants a parade.

Gainey is the source, he thinks we will trade for the french sensation Luongo! Don't worry we will only give up our 1st and Galchenyuk.
