Aebischer here to stay.

Just watched RIS and there was an interview with Carbonneau. Carbonneau said Huet only had 80 games of experience, that he wasn't a Brodeur or a proven starter so he and Aebischer would have to compete for the starting job.

Fair enough. Doesn't mean he's "here to stay," just that he will start the year with us, which many of us though would happen at this point / were hoping for anyway.

Rumors have Florida being interested. I think Danis is more than capable of competing for the starting job

Yesterday Pierre Lebrun said on "The spin" on channel the score that he thinks Aeby will stay for the start of the season and if Huet proves he is a starter and not a one year fluke Aeby will be traded in Jan. Gives the Habs more time to evaluate their needs as well.

Good news , have 2 number1 is a luxury a lot of teams can't affrod. Even if i like Danis another year in the 'A' wont hurt him.

Funny I remember an awful lot of quotes like this about Garon too. And Conklin. And Markannen. And Grahame. And Raycroft. Consistent goalies don't grow on trees. So when you get a couple you hold on to them until the right deal comes along. Particularly when the bar was set spectacularly low by the Cloutier deal.

Aebischer is a cheap, and proven insurance policy for Huet. And if a team gets desperate for a goalie at the deadline they would probably overpay for Abby because of his friendly salary.

OK,

Gainey need a good center. Want to deal from a position of strength.
A few have inquired about Aebisher A few about Sauray.

Gainey knows he must add a prospect along with one or both of these players to land his center.

Gainey, ( thinking way ahead) hides Grabovsky by telling him not to show up on time. Tells Latendresse to show up with a bandage on his foot. Tells Kosty not to show too much at the camp(drag his feet)

Do you think scouts are not eyeing some of our prospects? at the open camp.

Gainey tells the press he is done his dealing for now ( and waits for the phone to ring )

Carbo tells the press Abby will stay ( fake message )

Gaineys phone rings, it's the Panthers and the dealing starts, the Panthers dont realy want to part with Horton, but gainey adds a prospect along with Abby and maybe Ribs. Ribs actualy has more points then Horton.

It's a Spy vs. Spy game right now.

Possibly overanalyzing...I don't think BG and Carbo have the time to come up with this stuff...

I know I'am way out there with this, just thinking outside the box, way out the box.

Just taking known facts and moving the pieces around.

There is nothing on this team that could get us Horton.

A draft pick would probably do it. The habs roster is pretty much set as is, and I don't see any prospects Florida has that would be terribly interesting, though I admittedly didn't look too closely (and I obviously didn't count guys like Stewart or Olesz).

The only roster upgrade that it would make any sense for the habs to do is an upgrade on Ribeiro. Looking at Floridas roster, there are actually a surprising number of guys who come close to being a fit. Jokinen would obviously work, but....well, you know. I'd love to get Weiss, but Florida probably wouldn't do that either. That leaves Nieuwendyk and Stumpel as options, and neither thrill me, to be honest.

Anyways, I think the only thing that would be mildly interesting would be either draft picks, or one of Nieuwendyk and Stumpel (with Ribeiro either going to Florida, or somewhere else for a pick). You would also have to convince Gainey that he actually wants to move Danis, which he may well have no interest in.

You forgot Horton. Which is exactly what we need as 2nd center
He is a natural center, big strong, skates very well, shoots right.
He played rw last year but he is a true center. He is now just comming into his own. He is a TOP pick. This is the guy I want, even above Weiss.
Samsonov Horton Kovalev, IS HUGE

Hehe... can't believe this guy traded Luongo and Jokinen for DiPietro and Parrish.
He traded Chara, Spezza... for Lazy Yashin

And the list can continue with Bertuzzi, etc, etc...

Yes, sabotage our private rookie evaluation in order to cheat a team out of a #1 centre! It makes perfect sense!

I might be mistaken but wouldn't Danis need to clear waivers if he's sent down? If that's the case, and if Aebischer really does stay with the Habs, I figure Gainey would be happy to take a mid round pick for him instead of losing him for nothing.

The habs have the cap space to keep him on the roster if they have to, like Buffalo did last year. It would mean getting rid of Downey or Streit if they fullfill their promise to open a roster spot for a rookie. But if they'd rather just trade Danis, yeah, I think a draft pick would do it. I'm also under the impression he would have to clear waivers, but I'm no CBA expert.

p.s. I ignored Horton because there's no way in hell we can get Horton.
