Do you want Jovo?

Do you want Jovo? No habs D can pass the puck other than Markov. I think Jovo could help our team a hole lot. Would you sign him at around 4 M for 3 years?

I'd be ready to pay up to 4 millions for Jovo... but i doubt he'd come here.

Jovo is a good Dman, big and mobile, the type of Dman Montreal needs.

One big mobile Dman and One Scoring Centreman and we would be set. That and resign Huet.

I generally like those high-risk all-out type of D. But realistically, Jovo will be a $5M+ player, and I don't think he'd be the best use of those funds for us. We can get better bang for the buck with lesser players.

To me it's obvious we need a lot more to spend on a goal scorer or a big foward who can do damage big time, a lot more then we need a D. Our defense when healthy is pretty good, and we got a couple of rookies coming along, I have no idea why people insists on improving the defense so much when we've had difficulty to score more then 2 goals all season long

If the Habs miss out on the tier 1 guys that may be available (i.e. Redden, Chara & Lidstrom) which I think they will, they should be looking at tier 2 players like Jovo Cop or McCabe etc..

Funny how opinion is varied about him. Personally, I really like him, but I don't see him 80 times a year like Canuck fans. Hasn't Florida been strongly rumoured ?

The only thing that would put me off acquiring Jovanovski is his injury problems, which ironically may keep his asking price in the reasonable gamble range.

I don't want McCabe. I saw a lot of Leaf games being in Hamilton, and i even have McCabe on my fantasy team.

He is a good fantasy defenceman (pts and PIMs) but a bad real life dman. All he has is a point shot. Kaberle is much better in his own zone and is the guy who makes the Laffs PP run IMO. If it wasn't for all those passes right on McCabes tape for the one timers from Kaberle then McCabe wouldn't get the points. With the new rules McCabes defensive game is shot all to hell. He doesn't skate and pass near as well as Kaberle. Laffs made the right move in the dman they locked up long term.

if we can trade Souray. Both players are similar, they give giveaways and are bad in 1on1... but of course Jovo is better offensively.

Only because his sticks are STRONGER.

I see a lot of Leaf games as well (living in Toronto) and I completely agree on Kaberle's passing being the primary catalyst for the Buds PP, unfortunately he's not available. I think Markov could be just as good a setup man and would compliment a guy with a decent shot, doesn't necessarily have to be McCabe (Truth be told I just threw out McCabe's name because it popped into my head). Making a move for a blue liner with a cannon would make the Habs a lot more dangerous on the PP.

What you saw in the Olympics is what you would get with Brian McCabe.

Jovo is a good defenseman for sure, but his injury history worries me.

We're a team that tends to have a lot of key injuries, as Saks, Markov, Souray, and others do go down from time to time.

So I'd take him I guess, but he isn't an ideal fit.
