No...that's a 37 year old thinking over if he really wants to spend an other year grinding his body down playing hockey or if he should retire and spend time with his family and money.

Dreger says perhaps the 25th is for Tanguay.

Is someone even slower than me?

Tanguay and Sundin makes Mr. Nasty very happy. Kiss Streit goodbye.

There has to be more to this deal no? Only a 1st rounder?

Well, the 1st rounder may just yet go. Dreger on TSN just said the rumour is that the Habs and Flames just swapped Tanguay and the 25th pick. Wow, with Sundin in the fold, I wouldn't mind Tanguay. He's no gamebreaker but could play a good complimentary role and serve as the local hero. We have the cap room I guess. When you look at the youngsters and prospects coming too, it seems the Habs have just turned themselves into big dogs in the East for a while to come. We're aiming for Pittsburgh, clearly. I just hope it's not the usual letdown that follows all this rumouring.

It would still be a disappointment with all the names that have been thrown out there.

I also don't think Tanguay would put us over the top like a let's say Sundin would.

That could explain the hold out.

Does Tanguay waive his NTC??

Sounds more like it...couldn't quite take in the Sundin for 1st round pick because he doesn't know if he will play next year

Is it just me or does it look like we'll miss out on Sundin due to the fact that he won't sign with a team for another month and we won't have cap space...

I was just about to say, interesting how everyone knew about Sundin waiving the NTC, but no-one knew about Tanguay.

Tangay is only a $5.2M cap hit and for next season alone. We'd still have alot of money left.

Tanguay is pure speculation! All they know is that the Flames and Habs were talking.

He did it in a defensive-style Flames system, it's safe to say he'd score more in the Habs offensive system.

Depends. They need and want cap space. How many teams wants to take Tanguay at 5.75??

Might be the deal they got and they need to move him now?
