Do you know how many players they have to sign (espacially RFA)

Our 10,8 mil could almost all go to one UFA... we only have Gorges and O'Byrne to sign... together, they shouldn't cost more than 1,5mil, which would leave 9,3mil on one player... and that's with Dandy in the mix...

Montreal will not land an impact player and here's why...

Hmmmm.....can't quite put my finger on it.....

I actually "noticed" Finger during the Avs/Wild playoff series. Not in a spectacular way, (he didn't stick out like a sore thumb) but I did ask myself "Who is this Finger guy?" To me, he was very steady. No, not even remotely near the 3.5 million dollar range, but I thought he was fairly decent.

You can't get an upgrade on Bouillon for less than 5 mil and those guys want 4-5-6 year deals...look at Rozival, 20 mil over 4 years, a contract like that would make it hard to keep Plerkanec, Higgins, Komi, S.Kost, A.Kost, Markov and Price in 2-3 years.

Look at Wade Redden, he'd be #4 on the Habs based on his play last year and he got 6.5 mil on a 5 year deal...ridiculous!

I could see Sundin going to Detroit.

Let's face it, Detroit still has enough in the tank to win another cup. Sundin is a perfect picture in Detroit. The prime players in Detroit are swedish, many of Sundins friends. Detroit needs another big body with good skill, both of what Sundin consists of. Detroit is definitely a cup contending team again, and Sundin needs a cup. Sundin needs Detroit, and Detroit needs Sundin.
I dont understand how Detroit manages to sign all its players and how they win without star goaltending

We have 10M now and then next yr we have to re-sign:

Koivu (?)
Kovalev
Tanguay
Komisarek
Plekanec
Higgins

In the meantime we lose Kosto/Begin/bouillon/Dandy for around 4.5M..

how are we going to be able to fit say Hossa @ 8.0M and re-sign all of these guys?

Here's a nice addition for a 4th line. Craig Weller to Minnesota for 600,00 a year for 2 years. Might be the best acquisition cap wise.....would have liked him if we compare to Bégin or Kostopoulos.

If we can't sign any of the top 3 forwards, I'd try for Fedorov. He would be the perfect 3rd line Centre, but I think he'll ask for 4M+ seeing what's happening today.

But man it must suck to be a Buffalo fan. They never sign anyone and continually lose assets on the open market. Who's next? Roy? Stafford? Miller?
Roy is signed long term... They should be worry about Pominville...

"impact" player is a player who has very high expectations. Here are the characteristics of an impact player.

- Is in the top 10 scoring list over the past 3-5 years.
- A player who is between the ages of 22-34. Any player over 34 may still have "impact" skills, but age does play a factor.
- Finally impact means franchise player, and there is none out there. Sundin and Jagr were once Impact/franchise players, now that there both over 35, you can bet they will be retiring within the next 3-4 years. Franchise player usually means he will last a dynasty (a good 8-10 years with the club). Hossa was never an impact player, although he was in the top10 scoring over the past few years, and certainly has the skill of an impact player, he lacks the leadership. I've never seen Hossa pick up a team and carry them on his back.

Gainey is smart, and he will not waste his money on a guys like Sundin, Jagr or Hossa. They're not worth it, he should keep his money, and wait ti'll next summer. Most of the 22-24 year old stars' contracts will be expiring. Guys like Malkin, their entry level contracts will expire next summer. Malkin will no doubt be traded next trade deadline, unless Pittsburgh is in another cup contending era.

Gainey will surely wait ti'll next summer to sign his "impact/franchise" player.
Sounds impressive but self serving since you created a list to exclude the guys gainey is already actively chasing.

Trading to get malkin will surely gut a team. Furthermore since they will have a hard time making a deal for him I suspect they will do everything to keep him. Recent trades by P'burgh underline that point. Trade deadline deals usually involve top end older not younger players, for developing players or high picks.

You get to a certain point and then you need to put the team over the top to win somehow. BG will make the deal he can get without sacrificing our core group. It is what he said last yr and i think he sticks with that

If Montreal's youth didn't look so promising i would be worried if they couldn't land a big name. If Montreal "strikes out" so to speak, they are in no different position than the last year.

Talent moves around, some teams get stronger others get weaker. People were in a panic when Montreal didn't land the big name last year and all we heard was "this team got better, they landed gomez, drury etc" and Montreal still succeeded.

The only disappointment is maybe because its the 100 anniversary. Otherwise, it be nice to grab a marquee player or players but frankly, i am quite confident in the team in place today.

7:54pm ET - Oilers offering around $9 million per year for Hossa, while Wings and Pens offering just over $7 million. Habs are believed to be in the middle. Canucks and Rangers have also inquired.

Not sure that any of these guys (except Higgins and Komi) will ask for a MUCH higher salary. Anyway, if we have too many qualities players, it would be a nice problem to select the best ones.

8:10pm ET - Streit and Hainsey have become pretty popular now that Redden and Campbell are off the market. Montreal wants to re-sign Streit, but they're waiting to hear back from Sundin and Hossa.

when did that happen?

we still dont have anyone to replace him.
