Don't hate Holland, now he can't go for Sundin anymore.

Before the Hossa signing, teams after Sundin
Best team: Detroit
Best Offer: Vancouver

Now:
Best team: Montreal?
Best Offer: Vancouver

If anything, our chances of landing Sundin got a little better...

So if Rags resign Jagr now, very strong team next year IMHO.

Scary thing is..he was already starting to reach his potential playing with likes of Jiri Novotny and Manny Malholtra.

Because I believe he stated publicly that he wanted out.

Don't give up Filpulla is a good idea at 2.6 But for the choice to make sense we need to get him for at least two or three years.

The idea is so good that if Gainey does not do it. someone else will.
Detroit is now a Prey.. Funny!
Someone PLEASE fax this info to Bob Gainey STAT !! I would love to see filppula in a habs jersey.

Personally, I find this free agency less boring than last year.

I'm calling it the CHELIOS effect...

GM's are thinking that all these 32 - 38 year olds will play into their 40's.

Meanwhile the 29 year old...well he may not make it to 30 so we'll go 1 year with him.

Why? All they are doing is burning cash. The signing doesn't strap the organization from rebuilding. It doesn't make the team that much better if at all. There is a chance he may actually become a very good player later on. Besides, if they can't buy out McCabe, at least they won't need that money he's strapped with till after his contract is up. More time for the Leafs to get good draft picks. Really, all this is doing is burning MLSE's money...which they have loads of.

What is the taxation rate in quebec and how does it compare to some other cities for example?

Also how exactly do you determine if a player becomes UFA or a RFA?

Which would you rather: Sign a huge name player and pay 100 times too much or sign a few lesser players for a lesser amount and have more to work with?
I'd perfer the latter. I think it's great we have a GM that won't overpay for someone like Hossa. We have great prospects and young guys to develop. We don't need a Hossa.

Question: Why Was Hainsey Wavied by MON?

Thrashers fan here. I'm sort of ho-hum about the Hainsey signing but I wanted to get the facts straight. Why did Montreal waive him a couple of years ago?

IIRC the Habs had great depth on their blueline and Hainsey was too old to be sent to the minors without passing through waivers--do I have that right?

I'm assuming he was let go because of his generally soft play in his own end? Is that fair?

Wow great move by the Rangers. Two nice acquisition by New York, definitely the team to beat this year in the Eastern Conference IMO. Theyve added Redden, possibly a sure 1st or 2nd defensemen in any team plus a top 6 forward. Add that to the likes of Drury, Gomez and Lundqvist and you have a pretty darn good core of players right there.

He's just a complimentary player anyways, and he obviously doesn't care about winning, he wouldn't fit in Montreal...

But seriously, Ken Holland is a jerk. Resigning Stuart for 3.75 went unnoticed yesterday but was probably the best deal of the day when you consider the price paid for other dmen. Probably the best top 4 in the league with Lids, Rafalski, Kronwall and Stuart.

Then he gets Conklin, who looks to be a serviceable backup, for 700K and now his top 6 just got more dangerous. With Datsyuk-Zetterberg-Hossa you're looking at a serious possibility for 3 guys on the same team breaking the 100 point barrier.

What's also genius about this move is that Holland knows this is a one year chance to repeat the Cup. In the summer of 09, he's got to resign Zetterberg and Franzen, which will probably cost upwards of 10 million, so why not take a shot this year when a lot of guys are still under lower contracts.

They got Redden but don't forget that they lost Straka, Shanahan and Avery up front. So at the moment their top-4 wingers are Zherdev, Prucha, XX and XX... They still need more.

But their defense is very good now, if Redden returns to shape.

He was claimed on re-entry waivers. Streit beat him out for a roster spot at camp, Hainsey started the season in the AHL. Injuries forced a recall and he was claimed on re-entry waivers.

That said,

4 500 000 $ for 5 years

sorry.
