habs after Martin Grenier?

http://www.spectorshockey.net/

Thanks to "Frank" for the following on the Canadiens: "From a article in a north of Montreal news paper...Bob Perno and Martin Grenier from the NY Rangers has been seen in a Laval area restaurant last week talking about a possible signing with the Montreal Canadiens.

The Rumors his that the Montreal Canadiens are very interesting signing
Martin Grenier (UFA july 1st)to make him # 7 D-man in Montreal or maybe team capitain in Hamilton. Bob Gainey like his toughnest that make him the most fear player in the AHL last year. Gainey also think that you don't need to spend millions on tough guys in the new NHL..."

Grenier isn't NHL caliber. Tough guy that can fight.

I don't care how many times I see this thread, I always read 'habs after Martin Gerber' at first.

Mark Streit has a one-way contract and owns that #7D spot.

I think it could be a good move. For sure he can play in the AHL and play well out there, and he can play some games in NHL. He is still young, can learn the game and could develop into a decent 7th def. His best quality is toughness but not the same toughness as Vandermeer or Downey. Grenier can fight and intimidate the opposition, he is a legitimate heavyweight. It is better than what we have now.

So... would that mean that Gainey *hasn't* learned from last year's Aitken and Paul mistakes?

I think gainey wants to add more toughness to habs, no doubt, but is Grenier a solution...I highly doubt it. maybe for Hamilton though, but no more

He is a better skater than Downey. Come on! Get him up here.

Good news. Gainey wants to add some home players on the depth chart. That's not bad.

Don't take this as a given. This is from a guy named Frank who read it in an unnamed newspaper. You can't trust guys named Frank. Has anyone seen this article?

The players added as "depth" could barely hold their own at the AHL level. There were far superior players available to sign for AHL depth. There are again this year far superior players to Grenier to sign for AHL depth. It's not that we don't need the depth... we do... it's just about the specific players.

Maybe that's just me but I could care less about what's happening in Hamilton when it comes to players like Paul, Aitken, these guys has never been supposed to play in Montreal and were supposed to have enough experience to play in the AHL... Too bad if they didnt but BG probably had all kinds of reason to believe they could, Paul had alot of AHL experience and even if Aitken was awful in the NHL, I believe there was reasons to believe he could do better in the AHL... It didnt happened ? Ok but I dont believe that's a problem lol
