Dan Girardi and Devin Setoguchi could be good acquisitions for the Habs!

Vanek or Steen to inject some scoring threat in our forward group.

McClement or Ott for 4th line center duties. Other than that, nobody, let the kids develop.

Callahan would be great. Setoguchi for realistic chance.

That would be nice.

As someone mentioned, Girardi too.

If we could keep Emelin too it would be nice, but we'd ave a lot of defensemen... Considering the number of injuries in the last years, I guess it's better to have many anyway.

I'd throw the bank at Vanek. He's a reliable player and hasn't show any signs of slowing down. And he's 29, to boot!

Gaborik would be nice but the guy has had a history of dealing with injuries, especially with his groin. Nevertheless, he's another player, I'd try to get with a 5-year contract.

HOWEVER...

Next year, the only forward whose contract will run out is Gionta. Sure, 5 million is a lot of money, but PK Subban will need to be re-signed and that 5 million cushion will be going towards that.

Meanwhile, Markov's (almost) 5.8 million contract will end. I'd be weary to sign him at even half of that amount, now. Emelin's contract would also need to be re-signed as well.

Bottom line ; I don't think the Habs will be in any position to go after *any* high-profile UFA. The Brière and Desharnais contracts will make sure of that. Bourque's contract doesn't help either.

Obviously we'd re-sign markov and emelin...i'd also look into Steen and Downie (and buyout DD)

Emelin - Subban
Markov - Girardi
Tinordi - Gorges

not bad.

No. I don't care how pretty the sisters passing is.. just, no.

Emelin
Girardi
Markov

Kostitsyn
Much needed secondary scoring, and he hits like a freight train when he wants too. Gionta can take his 5 mill, his "character" and play killing slapshots from 50 feet out and MTFO.

Agree with the Girardi idea. Great pickup.

When somebody calls them "Sedin sisters," they automatically lose all credibility.

Is it possible to be in a credibility deficit?

IMO, Steen should be our main target.

Ryan Reaves to replace Parros.

Vanek, Callahan, Sedins, Thornton, Marleau....arent realistic acquisitions.


I would look for players like Nikitin or Ericksson who wouldnt cost that much.

This makes the most sense. Sorry but habs just don't have the money to throw at Vanek. Instead habs are stuck with dead weight like Desharnais and Briere for 7.5mil. There's your Vanek money.

Not really, I was just trolling on the Sedin bit. They'd be costly and do not fit this team in any way shape or form. MB is building a young team and trying to get tougher, that is no secret. The Sedin's are none of those things and come with a price tag they also have no room for.

Kostitsyn will produce just as much as Gionta at this point for way cheaper, already has chemistry with Plekanec and Eller. Many people would agree he would look great with Galchenyuk too.. The blind hate for AK because he didn't pan out to what everyone wanted is ridiculous. Scorers are streaky, period. If he wasn't he would be a superstar. Take him for what he is, secondary scorer who has a lethal shot and can throw crushing body checks. He improved his defensive game a LOT the last year under JM and I think he would be pressed to work hard with MT.

Montreal is on a tight budget with Subban and Eller needing new contracts. Not to mention Markov and Emelin + being stuck with DD and Briere for 7.5 Million. AK would fit, Sedin sister's don't. I get the original poster understood that too..but as a huge Vancouver and Sedin sister hater, I threw up in my mouth a little at the thought.

Niskanen would be my top target. Other than him, wait until the end of July and see who's available cheap (a la Raymond and Boyes this year).
