I hope Bob Gainey gives an offer to Bergeron. Who cares about a first rounder, he's most likely much better then anything we could draft.
No one will make an offer sheet to anyone. But if you do you can expect other teams to target your kids, it's not worth losing Higgins, Komi and Latendresse over one player however good he is. Our drafting is good enough that this would work against us.
Bergeron hates the Habs ( he was a big Nordiques fan ).
He's a good player but if i have to loose my draft choice for a player , it would be Spezza .
I think Spezza is gonna ask for quite a bit more though. And even if Bergeron "hated" the Habs, he's an NHL player now, he goes where his interests lie. If he wants to be closer to his family and in his home province, then he'll come with the Habs. I think Iginla isnt an oiler fan anymore, wouldnt you agree?
All of your proposals are unrealistic but if i had to take someone it would be Nathan Horton by far.
I think that he has the most potential of all the players you listed and he would fit like a glove into the Habs system.He's going to be a beast in a few years if he develop into the player he is projected to become.
