Habs could sign all 3 D!!

Didn't see this thread anywhere around here but the NHL salary cap is expected to go up by 3.5 M $ (www.tsn.ca)

so we could have enough money after all to keep Markov,Souray and Rivet

3.5M = Rivet salary, nothing less ! So Yeah, if it up by 3M we DO will have money for Rivet, Souray and Niinimaa. Oops I meant Markov.

Of course they can. It was never in doubt that they can. Wether they want to at the price they'll be asking is the question.

i think souray will be the only one asking for a huge increase...

Markov will probably want around the 3.5 range and rivet will probably take 2-2.5 mill to stay a hab for life

Why would we want to keep the exact same defense?

Am I the only one who thinks our defense, as a whole, sucks and that Huet usually makes the defensemen look better than they really are?

if we get Markov for 3.5 it would be an absolute steal i'm thinking more around 4.5min

Why would we want to? Souray is a pylon with a slapshot, and Rivet is horrible. As for Markov, he's nowhere near the level he was playing at last year; I'd go as far as to say that he isn't even looking like a top-pairing defenseman right now.

This blueline needs a major re-write.

Blind loyalty...

Markov and Komisarek are the only two I'd keep out of this bunch. I'd try to get something for Souray and Rivet. The third pair doesn't matter as much. It's ok right now and ok is fine for the third pair.

What matters is finding two other two-way defensemen who can move the puck properly. That's if we want to take a step to the next level, of course.

Potential free agents: Timonen, Rafalski, Hamrlik, Salo, DMarkov (slim pickins')

Not a good sign if we want to keep Andrei Markov. Two-way D are hard to come by. Which is why we should have signed at least one this offseason and taken off the band-aids when we had a chance.

If he gets it, he will be officially the most overpaid player in the NHL. Basically the closest comparable players are McCabe and Gonchar, and most think they are very overpaid at 5.75per and 5per respectively and are much more proven commodities than Souray.

sure as hell hope all 3 are back, though I'd be satisfied if only Markov and Souray are back.

Geez. If you listened to Dr. Doom over here, you'd think we were in last place in the NHL.

IMO, Souray will ask for 5M to 6M, Markov around 5M and Rivet around 3.5M. If we keep 2 of 3, it should be Souray and Markov.
