Well, this is an interesting idea. We could keep our new, youthful core TOGETHER.......in Hamilton!

What an inspiration!!

Higgins? Not really ready, only has 3 goals more than Lats despite LOADS of time with Koivu and on the PP.

Komisarek? Needs to work on his offensive game. Personally, I'd make him pay his dues next year in the AHL. If he can get 60+ points there, he will finally be ready, mature and confident to be a real top 3 D in the NHL in 2008-2009 without any ifs or buts.

Plekanec? Needs a chance to play somewhere where he can be the LEADER and CAPTAIN. Why continue playing in the big show for a weak team, when he can dominate in the AHL? Send him down, and let's hope for 100 points next year.

Kostitsyn? Obviously needs one more year to improve his consistency.

Lapierre? Needs to improve his defensive coverage down low in his own zone and also to pass more. A stint in the AHL should do wonders for him.

Anyway, the problem will be how to find enough guys to play in the NHL, what with the above 5 guys, plus Halak, Price, Grabovsky, little Kostitsyn, Milroy, O'Byrne and others not ready yet.

We could keep Niinimaa, Downey, Murray, Aebischer in the NHL and get a few more of those types to tide us over until the kids are ready in a year or two.

Hmmmm.... dammit, the problem is Markov. He is going to get mighty frustrated in Montreal playing for a lifeless, energy-less team that loses every night. Especially after taking his Canadian citizenship, giving up his chance at free agency to re-sign with the club that means so much to him. Oh, what the heck, send him to Hamilton, too. He'll be with his buddies, they'll gain a lot of success and they'll have a blast!

I almost thought you were serious (even though it didn't make sense - Komi at 60 pts) until I saw the 2 smilies at the bottom.

Yes, SOLR had posted that he would send Latendresse to the AHL for all of next year.

I found a way to accommodate that request while keeping our core together.

No you went FURTHER. You said that Latendresse would have to score 30 goals in the AHL to be able to come back here.

My bad: Let him get 30+ goals, it was more of prevision of his success than anything else.

Kidding aside. I would like to see a list that would show in how many years each of our young players can become UFA.
