Prust - Dumont - White

Plekanec would be able to play against the top offensive line and gives us some offensive output occasionally.
If we sign Vinny, DD won't stay center Plekanec won't be 3rd line center

I dont think he can handle the pressure here


I remember when he got an ovation during the ASG in Montreal, he really looked scared

Yes agreed...I don't really think money is the issue here as much as its term

Vinny wants a contract int he 5 year range...Habs don't want to commit to anything over 3 it looks like.

You'd think if both parties have a willingless to committ to each other, they'd find a way to get it done.

3 years would be perfect. I like that MB is only offering that. Vinny wants 5..

Just meet at 4 and if he really declines by that year just buy him out.

Yea I forgot about them. Everything to do with Karlsson has just made me really dislike their fans. I'll be pissed if Vinny goes there.

Very smart move by Bergevin to not roll the dice on 5 years...I think that would look quite bad in about 3.

Think he does some kind of show for CJAD or used too. Think he posts here too. Don't really know how good his sources are though.

I don't think pressure has anything to do with it

Money and how long it's going to be paid to him does though...

I want no part of a five year deal with Vinny. Hopefully Bergevin continues to stand pat.

I can stomach 5 if we're paying him 4 per tops.

If Vinny wants 5 and the Habs want 3, meet at 4 and sweeten the pot with an extra 500K per. You'll make your money back in a week Mr Molson

You didn't get the memo?

Eller is our best center NOW. He will move to the 2nd line about 10 minutes into next season's opener only because Galchenyuk will then be ready to assume 1st line duties.

Pleky is expected to retire during the 2nd intermission and DD will be converted into a 3.5M coffee table.

Oh, and about halfway somewhere during the season, the Habs lineup will consist uniquely of players under 25 years old that are actually with the team or in the pipeline.

I'd be fine as well. Perfectly manageable contract, IMO.
