Welcome Rene Bourque!! (And Pierre Gauthier appreciation thread!)

We're suddenly one of the largest teams in the east.

I'm excited to see what Bourque will bring !

edit: As a veteran member here I'd just like to say I'm sick and tired of Goat getting ragged on for every move and non-move. I'd like to, just for once, celebrate, what looks like to me, a great trade and I'd like to give Goat some credit for it.

I don't get how you guys are happy. Bourque is slow! He only had 2 good years his whole career. He;s 30 years old and he's signed until 2015 !!

..at 3 million. That is hardly a big salary in today's day age. Certainly not that much for a 20-30 goal scorer.

Bourque should be good for his first stretch of games. After that, he'll fade. He had motivation issues in Chicago and again in Calgary.

I think you guys will like Holland. He's a bit of a longshot, but he's an excellent 7th round choice.

Cammy's been varying degrees of terrible during the regular season in all his 2.5 years here. This is actually a wonderful trade and it behooves me to defend Goat for it.

1. Bigger
2. Tougher
3. Cheaper

**** you haters.

No need to defend and protect Gauthier after every single move.

I mean, say what you want, but a good GM isn't one that you have to keep reminding everyone how good they are.

Actions speak for themselves.

Bourque is actually a player I thought would be a good fit for a while now. He's having a bad year but so was our elite sniper. Also with Gionta done for the season we no longer have any "smurf" wingers.

His Wikipedia page says he's fluent in French, but I'm pretty sure he isn't now. Shame, I was excited to be bringing in a player who wouldn't be a topic of attack on RDS.

LOL at PG he said Patrick Holland a solid young centre man from Tri-City (Price used to play there). Holland is a winger, maybe he got mixed up with the bigger one Peter.

Another point to consider, there is a very very good chance Calgary will be much worse next year than they are this year. That 2nd rounder has a pretty high stock if you ask me.

PG can't do anything right. So we got rid of some salary, for another player who shows up when he wants. **** you Molson for letting this idiot take this team nowhere.

Holy ****. Gauthier does post here.

Had a poster on the Cammy trade thread that said the same thing....that Holland was 6' 2" 195.

Gauthier traded for the wrong guy. What a turd.

Ladies and Gentlemen, this is your Montreal Canadiens on display for the world to see. And it isnt your mom and dad's Montreal Canadiens either..........

25 goals for 3.0 mil sounds good to me. Big guy too.

@ Carey Price.

Rene Bourque is bigger. So is Hal Gill.

Once and for all. We need tougher players.

You think Bourque will drop the gloves to fight Lucic for harassing Subban? What about Bourque taking on Thornton for getting after Eller?

Stop with your false projections. Thanks.

I wouldn't say destroy but I would rather have someone else. At least, even if he's inconsistent, he can still score 27 goals.
