Problem is, Habs need a top 4 defenseman -- or so we all assume -- and not another 5-6th defenseman.

Just got home. Looks like I haven't missed much.

At least I didn't get any infractions today!

Did you guys really expect anything?

1-UFA pool is the worst in years, i bet an expension draft would have more quality.

2-The contract thrown away so far are brutal

Not really. I hated Mike Komisarek when he was with us even if people here thought he was the next captain.

I was thinking the very same thing. John Lu doesn't have any rumblings of it or LeBrun or McKenzie.

Can someone check via twitter and get a response back from LeBrun or McKenzie if it is true or not.

Think of who we like. That's who the Flyers want. They don't want our bad contracts.

Maybe Philly wants McCarron
I was thinking picks for next draft but yeah I have no idea what Philly would want for a huge package like that.

Rene Bourque - Max Talbot - Wayne Simmonds
Ryan White - Gabriel Dumont - Brandon Prust

Josh Gorges - PK Subban
Andrei Markov - Braydon Coburn

No idea what that means for guys going back though.
Looks like we lost both Beileau and Tinordi in that one.

1- it's decent

2- I agree they didn't learn anything from the lockout

We need a lot of things, what matters is it makes us better, not that it isn't ideal. Those are completely different things.

I like simmonds a whole lot, a whole lot and it might be a homer pick but I think that gallagher has a bigger upside.

I highly doubt LeBrun or McKenzie is going to reply to any of us today.

I'm just convinced that any big name coming here from Philly includes Pronger so he doesn't count against their cap at the start of the season prior to being placed on LTIR

That's a fake Bob McKenzie account Tweeting the #Habs Plekanec to Flyers for Simmonds and Talbot deal. No truth there. #GoHabsGo

I am sorry, but I disagree. Gallagher is just as likely to become injured due to the way he plays than Simmonds

I would be more than willing to move Beaulieu. He's a headcase.
