Here's my idea ; what's your?

I made my mind now about what, as a fan, I'd like to see for the Habs during the next season. It seems drastic, but it is time to do some real moves.

STAFF

-Melanson fired. Bring Allaire.
-Bob Hartley : 2 years deal.
-Keep Bob Gainey one more year.
-Bring Charron and Proulx to assist Hartley ; Muller and Jarvis fired.
-Bring Claude Lemieux and Vincent Damphousse in the organisation with some basic jobs for now.

RE-SIGN

-Kovalev. Give him the 'C' for one year. One year option.
-Komisarek : max offer 3.75M$ or too bad.
-Tanguay : give him 4M$ / 4 years deal.
-Lang : one year, major paycut.
-Kostopoulos : 2 year deal.

LET GO :
-Koivu
-Dandenault
-Bouillon
-Schneider

TRADE :
-Higgins
-Halak
-O'Byrne
*Kost Bros. if we can get a major player ('ala' Lecavalier or Kovalchuk)
*Plekanec if we can get an other center ('ala' J.Staal)
-Some prospects (time to move for some established players)

AIM UFAs :

1-Gaborik or Havlat (injure prone, but explosive players, if they accept decent salaries) ; Hossa if he doesn't resign with Detroit.
2-Top 3 defenseman : Beauchemin or Ohlund. I can live with a Boynton, Leopold or Kalinin.
3-A hard-nose player. I definitely see Knuble here. If not (and if we can't get a number one winger), one or two of these guys :
Forward : Antropov, Cole, Moen, Laperriere, Bertuzzi, Kotalik.
4-Backup veteran goalie (Fernandez, Garon, Roloson. I'd like a Biron or Khabibulin but they still can be number 1).
5-One more D-men (for depth):
D-men : Gauthier, M.A.Bergeron, Spacek, Boucher.

Guess I'm dreaming... But if they decide which direction to take sooner than later, I hope we will see some major moves from my list.

2008-2009 season made me puke my balls through my mouth.

We need a coach with experience. I guess you haven't enough memory to remember what happened with : Tremblay, Vigneault, Julien, Carbonneau and Therrien.

Why keep Gainey? We don't need time to lose. Draft and UFAs are coming, players NEED to know what's happening in Montreal now or it will be too late.

If you guys are geniuses, then propose your plans. Or maybe you are just good at criticizing... Ah, that explains the more than 1000 posts....

Respectable? Really? Look some playoffs games, you'll see respectables teams. With respectables prospects who aren't drunks or stoned and that are men enough to do their job with passion.

There's a reason all of us are on message boards, and not running professional teams. I don't see a point in saying "what I would do" because... no one cares what I would do.

I said SOME THINGS I'D LIKE TO SEE. I'm a long time fan, I can have my opinions, and I can share.

Name a playoff team who advanced past round one who had injuries to their #1 defenseman, #1 forward, #1 powerplay threat, leading scorer at the time of injury, etc.

A healthy Habs' team is better than what we saw versus Boston. Is it an excuse? Sure. But it's also a valid one.

We made the playoffs 4 of 5 years under Gainey, when's the last Habs GM to have that kind of track record?

Absolutely. I said I don't see a point in sharing my opinion since I know no one cares about it. You could share yours 'til the cows come home, though.

So what's a forum's for? Insulting people? Get a life, or a gun.
