Actually most top end talents that have been traded in the last few years went for peanuts.

As for the wrench in your payroll, Detroit, Bruins and other good teams have at least 1 player costing them so much and they seem to cope. Keep in mind that Higgins + Plek will make at least 6 mil next year. Add those two + dandy and you just made your 7.7 mil.

He just might, but I don't think Vinny would accept it out of respect to Beliveau.

The reports from people who have some credibility, like McKenzie and such say that like half the team would be going for Lecavalier.

"Ce soir, le Jeudi le 22 janvier, Lecavalier et Madame prennent le souper avec Brisebois et Madame. Selon ce que j'ai appris, les joueurs Québécois du CH seront appelés à mousser l'équipe à Vinny. Une visite des installations de Brossard est prévue ainsi que dans le vestiaire du Centre Bell, et ce avant tout le monde, avec une place portant le nom V. Lecavalier 4, au côtés de Kovalev et Komisarek. L'état major du CH ne peut lui parlé pour ne pas être accusé de maraudage. Une rencontre en face à face est prévue entre Len Barrie, Oren Koules, Georges et Foster Gillet, Bob Gainey et Brian Lawon ainsi que deviné qui....... "call me gary" Gary Bettman. Je connais le ieu et l'heure de la dite rencontre, mais je vais en rester là, je ne veut surtout pas nuire aux négos! Désolé. Je sais que c'est BIG, mais je n'écris jamais ici pour rien! Je vous tiens au courant des développements."

Translated in English..
Tonight, Thursday Jan. 22nd, Lecavalier and his wife are going out for supper with Brisebois and wife. From what he has learned, the french players from MOntreal have been told to "sell" the team to Vinny. A visit in Brossard is expected as well as a visit into the Bell Centre dressing rooms, before anyone else with a stall that has the name V. Lecavalier 4, between Kovalev and Komisarek. The Canadiens management cannot talk with Lecavalier without being accused of pilfering. A face to face meeting is expected between Len Barrie, Oren Kouleas, Georges and Foster Gillet, Bob Gainey and Brian Lawton as well as guess who...."call me Gary" Gary Bettman. I know the location and time of the said meeting, but i will leave it at that, i certainly do not want to ruin the negociations! Sorry. I know this is BIG, but as you know i don't write here for nothing! I will keep you guys posted as i hear it..

El Chouin vs Ecklund?

Chouchoune should know that Komisarek and Kovalev are not sitting next to each other in the room.

My point is the reason "V. Lecavalier #4" is hanging in the Bell Centre locker room right now is because of the All-Star game.. Kovalev and Komisarek are obviously beside his name (maybe in an attempt to persuade him to come to MTL) or maybe just by luck.

The article doesn't say they are giving him #4, it just says they are going to show him his stall with his name and number.. which is obviously for the All-Star game.. but maybe to give him the feeling that his name could hang in this locker room all the time.
Thanks, I was a little confused.

Whoever this is, should probably also know that Vinny isn't married....

Because the regular season doesnt matter.

Because Bob knows there is something, just one little thing this team needs to be a great one.

Because Montreal wants a cup this year or the next, not in 5 years.

Because the regular season doesnt matter.

Because the regular season doesnt matter.

ok so who e-mailed 110% this story?

The host said he had heard that lecavalier was going to the Brossard training center and was gonna meet with Gillette, Tampa owners and Bettman.

It was pretty much verbatim, but that guy (the host) is know as a rumor monger and probably just saw it on chfans and took it as a "source".

How reliable is this guy anyway? I could just claim hes the former poster "Sevil" but do we have anything to pin this guy and can we actually call him reliable?

The guy posting that over there has like 15 posts. It wouldn't take much of a search to find out if he's called stuff in the past.

Lecavalier, as a member of the Eastern Conference All-Stars, has a stall in the Montreal Canadiens dressing room.

Because Kovalev and Komisarek are also All-Stars, they will be using their stalls. It appears Vinnie has been placed in between. And for the All-Star game, Vinny can wear whatever number he likes.

So...Lecavalier is using Koivu's stall?

If Saku sits between Kovalev and Komisarek, then yes, that's what the OP is saying.

So far this season:

0-2-1 vs NJ.

1-2-1 vs BOS.

1-2 vs WSH.

There's your answer if it ever does happen. The Habs have shown they are not a true contender in the East...
Yeah, well, we also went 4-0 against Philly and 8-0 against Boston last year, that did nothing for us. Regular season series don't mean anything when the playoffs start.
