I can't say I feel sorry for guys like Neuwendyk and Roberts ( among others ) who would rather go to Florida to finish up their careers ... of course once the '' boredom '' kicks in ...

Probably because he (and the team) were IN Montreal when he said that?

Well think of it from Newendyke's point of view.

My career is almost over.
The Panthers are not going anywhere.

The Habs need a center.
I would get to play with some very good talent.
I would have a shot at a cup one more time.
I know Carbo.

Jumping from the Panthers to the Habs at this point makes sense to me for sure.

yep, please Mr. Gainey, get me the hell out of Flordia.

Like Dubé mentionned on the pre game radio yesterday, the minute Jacques Martin lets a guy like Nieuwendyk go, it sends a strong message to the effect of: we give up.

If you do that in december...the rest of the season is VERY long...he will probably wait till the last minute.

They have 8 wins in 26 games, including the worst road record in the league, they ain't going nowhere. They might not officially want to say they give up, but the Florida Panther's season is already gone.

Well, I wonder if Gainey could make a trade offer for Nieuwendyk as the trade deadline approaches. If the Panthers are out of the playoff picture, then Joe could be the second line centre the team needs. He's a good 2-way centre.

I'm quite sure that Gainey will go for Nieuwendyk for the playoff run. Hopefully he won't deal another Jarome Iginla for him.

yes, probably.

i was just fanning the flames.

i really couldnt care less if he came here or not.

from what i've gathered he's a slow poke that would probably just hold the line back.

but maybe that assessment was wrong.

at any rate, if we trade for him it certainly wont be now.

it's a shame that the panthers cannot stop sucking.

i mean people kept saying how much this year the panthers were gonna be a much improved team. guess they were all wrong.

Yeah I don't think I can explain it. It's pretty evident how hard they work and the effort they put in. But they are terribly inconsistent, the offense is there one night but the defense isn't. Then the defense/goaltending is but the offense is not. Guess it's just not in the cards.

Well you guys are still missing Bertuzzi who can be a difference maker.

I don't see Nieuwendyk has a solution for the second line. I see him has a guy who could play 10-13 min. in key situation (taking a faceoff in the zone; playing on the 2nd unit of PP) But I rather see someone else on the 2nd line. He's always a question mark for each game because recurrent injuries to the back, hip and knees. But I think he could be a tremendous addition in other areas mentionned.

If it gets us the cup, no price is too high.

He probably wants some revenge on the Leafs for not resigning him also. He was willing to sign there for practically nothing and they turned him down.

Last year during Nieuwendyk was recovering from an injury I saw him skate with Stumpel at the University of Ottawa sports complex. From what I saw I did not think he would ever play again he could barley bend over, but he was skating with his back straight up and down, but he battled back from that. I do not think he is the solution for the Canadiens but he has proven me wrong in the past and has a cup ring which never hurts.

From what he said it does sound like a cry for help to Bob.

I think they officially said they give up when they traded Luongo in the off season. They traded away their only shot to make the playoffs or even be a respectable team. He kept them in every game and now there are stuck with old backstab Bertuzzi.

Exactly. This POV that says prospects are worth more than a Cup makes so little sense it's depressing some people actually think like that.

Ask a Dallas fan if they'd rather have Iginla or Cup. Does Carolina regret having given up a 1st for Doug Weight? Ask any rational hockey fan if he'd rather see his team win the Cup or amass a nice collection of prospects.

Sometimes a highly touted prospect is the price you have to pay get that player that pushes you over the top. And the way the buisness of the game is today the window of opportunity is smaller than it was 30 years ago. So if you have a chance to get a veteran player that will put you over the top, you go for it. Any GM should be able to see this and hopefully if BG sees a player who he thinks can help us win, he won't be afraid to pull the trigger.
