James Neal would be a perfect fit in Montreal.

Erik Johnson can't get an offersheet, and the Habs don't have a 2nd Round pick so they won't be able to offer a contract big enough that wouldn't be matched.

In order:

Bobby Ryan 4.5 million
James Neal 4 million
Marc Staal 3.5 million
Erik Johnson 3.0 million
Chris Stewrat 3.0 million
Niclas Berfors 3.0 million
David Perron 2.5 million
Martin Hanzal 2.5 million

Give Andrei and Sergei kostitsyn Hamrlik Spacek away for peanuts
DO NOT resign Moore, Metropolit, Mara, Bergeron, Plekanec

Montreal should trade Halak for Neal
Sign Bobby Ryan to offer sheet 4.5 million 5 years.
Sign Eric Staal 3.5 million 3 years

David Perron/James Neal would be great fits on Montreal.... i also think UFA David Clarkson would be a good fit with our top line!

Ryan or Neal is what we need. Too bad the Math doesn't work if were keeping Pleks.

Clarkson also would be great, I can't see NJ not re-signing him though.

Hanzal. A big centreman. Defensively responsible and has some skill, hits and fights (if need be) Say byebye to Pleks.

Clarkson is a RFA

He is 26, he only has 3 NHL seasons, can't be in regular UFA category. And he played way over 80 NHL games, so he can't be a a group 6 UFA for 25-26 y-o with not enough NHL experience (Like Belle & Benoit with us).

I would try trading for Hanzal with the Kost Bros. Might be able to get the 22th pick in this kind of scheme instead of 27th. And this would make us a lot bigger. Too bad Hanzal is still just an experiment.

The Habs do have a 2nd rounder. It's a 3rd rounder that we're missing and we would need a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd to give a competitive qualifying offer to EJ.

It's a 2011 2nd that you need and if I'm not mistaken we traded it to the Panthers for Moore.

You can't make an offer sheet until July 1st, and the compensation would be for the 2011 Draft, which we don't have our 2nd Round Pick because we traded it to Florida for Moore. And if I'm not mistaken EJ can't get an offer sheet because he missed one full season due to injury so he doesn't qualify to receive one.

Any of those players would be good, but I'm sure every team would match.

I wouldn't mind trading our 1st this year, and AK, with Joonas Nattinen, to acquire one of Neal, M.Staal, Johnson, or Bobby Ryan, I think its a desirable package, and equal value for both teams.

A late first, A floundering player that has hit 30 goals once, and an 3rd or 4th tier prospect will NOT net you anything close to those players. If im the GM of those teams I laugh and hang up the phone.

You guys are right. I had my head in the clouds.

i really like how you people are talking about signing any of these guys that hit a minimum of at least 3-3.5mil.. knowing that they are RFAs at 3 to 5 mil offer sheets to these players will also cost us 1 to 2 first round draft picks, or a combination of 2nd rounders and 3rd rounders; but for sure we'd lose at least 1 1st rounder in any of those deals... To be honest I'd love to have a Bobby Ryan or David Backes, but we'd be sacrificing a whole lot and it would take considerable cap space too.

I'd sacrifice a draft for Erik Johnson or Bobby Ryan. But thats it.

The rights to those players, I still have to sign one of them.

lol, so. They are viewed as huge peices of the future for their team like Pk Subban is to us. No way in hell does it happen. They are all in their early 20s. Theres no reason for those teams to do it.

OFFER COMPENSATION

$994,433 or below None
Over $994,433 to $1,506,716 Third-round choice
Over $1,506,716 to $3,013,434 Second-round choice
Over $3,013,434 to $4,520,150 First-round and third-round choice
Over $4,520,150 to $6,026,867 First-round, second-round and third-round choice
Over $6,026,867 to $7,533,584 Two first-round choices, one second- and one third-round choice
Over $7,533,584 Four first-round choices

This is for last year so I expect these numbers to go up with the presumed 2 mil increase in cap next season. Also the draft picks would be from the 2011 draft or later (for successive first round picks).

However, we don't have the cap room and even if we gained some, the only teams that might not be able to match an offer sheet are the NYR and SJS. Even then I wouldn't put it past the Rangers to bury Redden in the minors, and Nabokov and (possibly) Marleau look to be leaving SJ, thus creating cap space.

It's not happening.
