If Gainey signs Brière, I hope he will convince Saku to be traded to SJ (and his best friend Rivet's paradise) for Marleau. Then, we have the right centermen combo with Brière-Marleau-Plekanec-Lapierre or Chipchura.

Now why on Earth would San Jose want to trade Marleau for Koivu? Did Wilson suddenly wake-up a ******? Jesus-Christ please think before making posts like that.

Makes sense to me...
THe key is to get size and BRiere. I think we should also try our luck with Hanzus and Hartnell.

Why this many weaknesses in the team not one player can solve everything. That said, when a player brings part of what you need and the opportunity is there you need to take it.
Getting a player of that caliber is rare enough, along with not having not give any assets besides cap space, and many teams realise that. I believe we have less than a snowball's chance in hell at getting Briere but there's no doubt however gets him after july 1st will have to go through us and will overpay dearly.

Briere is like the kid in The Sweater. He got the wrong jersey under the tree and had to wear that ugly sperm buffalo.

I would trade Marleau for Koivu in a heartbeat. Marleau is a gaping kitty-cat. Koivu is a warrior. Big difference. San Jose needs defense though (and not Rivet...lol).

I have never said that, even during the lean years. I feel really strongly that Briere will be a worse signing than Samsonov.

Believe it or not, Samsonov had more of a track record for the contract he signed with Montreal, than the one that Briere will get this off-season (Datsyuk money).
You nalied it on the head. The same fans that are clamoring for Briere will be screaming for the Habs to chase him out of town by Christmas. Briere is 30 years old and has had one and half good years. He was on waivers. Briere is a good player but no way does he deserve the money that's being tossed around. Samsonov has had a better career than Briere.

Anaheim isn't a slow team they could keep up with Ottawa and had the advantage in size that's why they won.

Of course. My fault but I wasn't implying that the Ducks were slow. You are right that the Ducks were fast enough to keep up with the Sens and were much more larger team, so yes, I know why they won. Just commenting on the creativity part. The much creatively superior Sens looked like the Leafs against the big strong Ducks, it was rather disheartening in that sense. Frankly, the Habs would have had absolutely no chance to beat the Ducks if they so happens to make it to the finals (unless Huet becomes god in net...).

I was at the tourney, and the shirt stuff was just a joke. Most of the people attending the golf tourney were hockey people from the GAtineau area. And most are Habs fans. Nothing to it. Wow, talk about making a big fuss for just a joke.

Besides, forget about Montreal. He's not that fond of it.

By the way, he signed a deal with a local car dealership, Kollbec to be precise, and got a new Nitro. Does that mean that he just dropped the Lexus deal he had in Buffalo? Mmmm....
