I think Sam might be a good fit on Chicago. In times when he's not produced as well, he usually seems like he's making smart plays and playing hard. I like him so I want to see him thrive somewhere.

Good deal for both teams...Samsosoft will be much better as a Hawk than a Hab...Carbo just didn't know how to get the most of Sammy...hopefully he will rebound with the Hawks!

nice work
Havlat didn't really turn it around, he's still basically the same player when he was with Ottawa. He just got a chance to play a lot more.

As for the deal, hopefully Samsonov can get it going. It looks like a good deal for both teams I guess.

Lets put it this way: he cant do worse than last year with the Canadiens, Chicago knows that and he can only get better with the Hawks!

I like the deal.

There was no place for Cullimore on the team and Salmelainen can't play.

Samsonov has to do better than he did last season and it's his contract year.

Good deal for both teams! Sammy is a legit top six foward and Montreal will buyout Cullimore. I am happy.

Mark me down as yet another Hawk fan who likes this trade. This deal is one where both teams win.

I'm just so damn glad that I'll never have to see Cullimore or Salmo play for the Hawks again. Both guys truly were worthless.

Sam son-of-a-.....

After some 40+ years, I give up on the Hawks. They can continue to suck forever!

As a Habs fan, I like Samsonov (when he was not in Habs uniform).
I am sure Sammy will do well in Hawks uniform. It's that the Habs have too many skillful small forward who also play defence that made Samsonov fall out of favour.
Good trade Hawks!

No it isnt. It's because he flat out sucked and was making too much cash on top of it. Not to mention the fact he stated that he made a mistake signing with the Habs(wouldnt have been one if you were any good buddy) and you cant trust having a player play for your team if you dont know whether or not he's going to do all it takes to help that team...seeing as how he doesnt wanna be with the team.

BTW, we need something other then skilled small forwards. Morer like size and grit for the Habs, thank you very much.

I'll second that. As good as Samsonov can be, I thought some teams would learn from the big bad Ducks that you'll need at least some size on the wings. And haven't Chicago had its fair share of failed russians on their team over the last 10 years or so...?

With that said, lets hope he can turn it around...

here is the deal with samsonov and the habs.

The habs got him to put with Kovalev.
Kovalev is the key guy on his line. Kovalev is a great passer with lots of smarts. The Habs already have Kovalev, what the habs thought it was buying with Samsonov is a player constantly on the move and heading for the net. SO Great perfect fit with Kovalev the passer.
but Samsonov wanted to stay along the boards and be the passer, so what we all saw was both wingers along their half boards waiting for ? to go for the net.
Well try looking at this for 10 games and you start to understand why Carbo was not a happy camper with Samsonov. Samsonov was being told 10 times per game to skate and go for the net HE DID NOT, instead he banged on Gainey's door demanding a trade.
yes, demanding a trade 10 games into his 2 year 3.5 mil contract.

The Hawks might get some production from Samsonov, but only if he dictates the rules and not the coach. you must let him be the passer
and let others charge the net.
If it works out for you GOOD, but we hab fans can't wait to replace him.
Don't be fooled by what Samsonov says in public, ( it's not me, I bring my A game every night, things will get better, it's only a slump, I love the city and my team)
Just rate what he does not the ice, I mean actual production and not just some fancy skating in open ice.

obviously, this is a case of fans not seeing much of the teams from the other conference.. because anyone who's seen Samsonov this year knows that it was just a good deal by the habs to get rid of his lazy azz.

This guy has no heart, and not much in his game at this point in his career. If the Hawks' goal is to make the playoffs, then they took a step back with this trade. I feel sorry for hawks fans (and no, i'm NOT a habs fan).

Watch them turn around and become the most hard working, highest scoring line in the NHL.

I can't decide if this post needs a "" or not...

you decide.

I really hope there's no substance to that speculation. I actually like Yashin and if it wasn't for his huge contract I don't think people would've pointed him out as much. I would NOT like to see him on the Hawks though, especially not this year. With the 1st overall + the young prospects Chicago have I see it as a chance to a fresh start. A Yashin like player isn't what this team needs... the kind of player who only thrives on winning teams and really disappoints on losing teams. I'm not saying Chicago will be a losing team this year, I'm just saying it's in a transition period, a change isn't always as easy for the players and the staff and the franchise... usually it's only the easiest for the fans .

Who would I like to see down the middle for the Hawks? Scotty Gomez. He'd be a perfect fit. Or Chris Drury. I think that would be awesome.

After all the injuries, Sammy is terrified to go to the net now. He turns the puck over every single time he touches it. Don't play that drinking game, it's too dangerous.

But he's a skill guy who is fun to watch when his running around accidentally makes something happen (rare).

Chicago is just stalling until their superb kids are ready.

I hope Sammy turns it around for the Hawks. He'll certainly have his work cut out for him to return to his earlier form. As for the Habs, they clear more cap room, to hopefully get the players they need. Good deal for both teams.
