That would be fantastic.

Would have been better if Le Roi Des Bonnes Bargains would have signed Radulov, but I'd still do it nonetheless.

As many are saying, I also believe Galchenyuk, Drouin, and Lehkonen are the future. But I also predict Hudon being a part of that future. They'll most probably be the 4 best forwards on the Habs. The beauty, they're all 23 and under right now.

I would have also preferred keeping Radulov at 30 than having to extend Pacioretty at 30. And I would trade Pacioretty because he currently holds the most value in the organization and will fetch the Habs a real solid return.

But yeah, I think Pacioretty will play with Drouin. If Radulov had signed, they could have kept the Patch-Danault-Radu line, but it's not happening, and Pacioretty desperately needs a playmaker on his line.
The pacioretty danault Gallagher line was the most productive p/60 of all the danault combinations last year

Lehkonen chucky drouin

Has there been any insight as to why he chose number 92? Seems really random to me unless I'm missing something.

Patch - Danault - Gally
Drouin - Chucky - Lehk

isn't the end of the world. But we have so much cap space there's no way we don't buy low on someone maybe with a big (but expiring) contract...

Well, he was born in '95 and he was picked 3rd overall. So 95-3=92.

Sounds good but as Ringo would say, it don't come easy.

Sam reinhart would be so sexy. Defensively responsible center.

I'll take two shots at the dark on this one:

I'll say that there's no other 92 in the NHL and he wants a number that becomes synonymous with his name as he feels he will be great.

or

He thinks he's Montreal's 2nd coming of Maurice Richard.

Mackinnon is his best buddy and is #29 I think this is why drouin picked #92. Bromance indeed

I like the lines except they're unbalanced defensively. Swap Gallagher and Drouin perhaps. They (Galchenyuk and Drouin) should obviously play together on the PP.

I believe Galchenyuk needs to be at C or RW, preferably C. We still need a #2 C. Danault makes Plekanec redundant. His $4 after retention can be used to help pay that #2.

Ryan Johansen, Evgeni Kuznetsov & Gabriel Landeskog all wear 92 actually

A Drouin-Galchy-Lehkonen line could work. very quick wingers. Drouin would be the playmaker. Galchy, the sniper. Lehkonen, the pitbull in front of the net and in the corners.

Then: Patches-Danault-Gallagher

Byron-Plekky-Shaw (Hemsky ???)

DLR-Mitchell-McCarron-Martinsen ???

Uhhhh, I hope Drouin doesn't learn how to become an nhl player from Pacioretty. No celebrations and only perimeter plays.
I hope Drouin plays with Galchenyuk and Lekhonen. Pacioretty with Gallagher and acquired C. Makes the top 6 tolerable with the loss of Radulov.

Danault can easily be that second line center.

Who is available out there ? What would it cost to get one ? Bozak ?? Little ?? RNH ??

Given Byron scored 22 goals last year and Shaw, Hemsky could positively surprise, our offense is really not that bad.

The biggest issue right now is how little transition support we are going to get from the defense.

Danault is a 3C. He got 40 pts playing Radulov and Patches. Honestly I don't know who is out there, Bergevin needs to figure his crap out and get a top 6 C. Buy low on Bennet or Reinhart maybe. He 100% cannot go into next season with C and LD as it is today.

I hoped Drouin would play Lw and give the team depth on the left side with Patches, Drouin, Shaw, Byron but with Radulov gone not so sure. RW looks much uglier now so...
