Hejduk or Tanguay?

Who would you rather have?

Not that it's going to happen but it is based on this:
"If you're into history repeating itself, there has been talk, at least in Denver, about Montreal sending Jose Theodore to the Colorado Avalanche. The Habs would have to get a quality player or two in exchange, even if moving Theodore would clear precious cap room. Montreal's wishlist would likely be topped by Alex Tanguay, but maybe, just maybe, they'd settle for Milan Hejduk, who's having a disappointing season in Colorado.

If the teams need a salary match to make it work, Theodore and Mike Ribeiro combine to make $5.678-million and the duo of David Aebischer and Milan Hejduk is on the books for $5.6-million. Just a thought."

I like Hejduk more.

I don't want him if it means getting rid of Theodore, though.

I think they're both too small. Now that the NHL has abandoned its "let the skilled players shine" movement, we should be looking to increase our size again. If anyone thinks the playoffs aren't going to be the usual clutch-and-grab fest, you're kidding yourselves.

Hejduk is a RW and Tanguey is a LW, we already have two great RW why do people insist on getting another RW? Do you want to start putting players in positions they may not be comfortable playing in (moving a RW to LW) ?

With Dagenais in AHL, our need for a good LW is bigger than ever so there is one choice and it is Tanguey. Hejduk will not score +35 goals without an elite center (Forsberg, younger Sakic) so most of you would be disappointed with his production anyway.

Hejduk for me (although im slightly biased)

The guy is a good goal scorer, good set up guy, right hand shot and his value is relatively low right now. Even though he had that injury at the start of the season, i'd still love to have this guy on the Habs. No disrespect to Tanguay, i'd like him on our team too, but i've been a fan of Hejduk for a few years now. Regardless of his current struggles, he has the talent and im fairly sure to desire to perform better. He may even be able to re-create some of that offensive production with Bulis they had last year in europe.

Alex Tanguay without hesitation, he could be a local hero with the Habs, he would fill our need in LW and he is still young

Ideally, of course I would love to have Tanguay.

However, if you look into the situation, maybe Hejduk is better.
a) He has a 5 year/20 million dollar contract, so no worries there.
b) Tanguay will a RFA and will demand at least 5 million.
c) If we get Hejduk, perhaps we could get more out of the Avs bc Hejduk has been struggling.

Tanguay - just to see how much better he would be playing closer to sea-level altitudes, with less sinus problems.

Prefer Tanguay cuz he's younger and being a star Quebecquer would make losing theo not as bad in the eyes of the media.

Are you implying that Hejduk is a third line player?

I prefer Hedjuk, but his damaged knee and the length of that contract is a concern.

so I go for Tanguay simply for the fact that he is healthier and signed shorter term.

I think Hejduk's contract increases his value, but also decreases the likehood of him being traded.

He took a pay cut this summer to sign this long term deal because he loves playing hockey in Denver. If PL ends up trading him it's a slap in the face which will hurt this team in it's ability to sign it's of RFA/UFA's or attract other UFA's. I don't think PL will do that.

But yeah, this season Milan has been pretty dissapointing, but he's still trying to come back from that injury. As we've seen with kariya and Selanne this season it can take a while for players to get back into form. I think he'll be scoring 40 goals again by next season

I would go with hejduk. One of the reasons this guy is having a sub par season is because of the lost of frosberg. He was one of the best passers in the league and hejduk benefited a ton from forbergs. Look at simon gagné. Hes having a phenomenal year and most of that comes from peter.

Koivu is alot like forsberg. Hes great at making other players urond him better. Maybe with a center like koivu hejduk could find the magic touch he once had. Kovalev is a much better player when he plays with koivu then when he plays with ribeiro. I mean can you imagine a kovalev-koivu-hejduk line. That line would strike fear in other goalies.

Alex Tanguay - no question. He is younger, we could use another LW, and I think he can do more by himself than Hejduk. Hejduk seems to be a bit more one-dimensional.

I hope not , I think he means we can finally have a french player who isn't 3rd lin material ala Begin.

What I'm interested in is Laperriere. I think the Habs could overpay for him also.
