No shooters from the point (Remember when Hamrlik said he would replace Souray? bahahah) other than Subban, no mobility other than Subban, no nothing.

Taking Hamrlik out and replacing him with Paul Martin, Hamhuis or Volchenkov would be ideal.
Slow with no offense and you think replacing Hammer with Volchenkov will help that?

Pleks
Gomez
Eller/?
Eller/?

We need a veteran 3rd or 4th line center since I don't think its very smart to have two rookies centering our bottom two lines. Do we move Laps to center again? Some say he is better on the wing.

Belanger could be a nice option if he is not asking too much. Maybe Lombardi but I don't think he would want to play on the third line.

if he accepts 3 mill he will ask for more than 2 years. But, I would love to see him in Habs jersey than Pleks with his 5 mill.

I'd rather take a chance on Jokinen for a year than pay $5 million for multiple years for Plekanec.

I want Plek so much just to have homegrown boys in the lineup.

With him gone, we would have
AK
Price
Markov
Subban
Lapierre
White?

That's not good.

Plekanec >>> Lombardi, not even close. I know it might sound crazy to some people, but if you count on Free agents as your source of success, eventually you're going to get screwed over when you're up against the cap, or if the players you need are just not available.

Really? You'd rather have Lombardi than Plekanec? Maybe if Pleks wants crazy money (5.5+ million) and Lombardi could be had for 3 million or so. Otherwise -

Would be happy to see Plek come back

We can always try and get Belanger if it doesn't workout for Moore

And if Plekanec comes back, Eller will be centering the 3rd line but the lines get shuffled alot here in montreal. Eller would push Plek in his rear

Jokinen will get a lot more than taht as a UFA, plus he is nowhere near Plekanec in terms of being a complete player...plus he has a bad reputation as a teammate.

You take him on a short term deal and don't look back. IMO, if all goes well, Eller will be 2nd line center in 1-2 years and guys like Leblanc will be in the system. Maxwell/Engqvist will most likely be on team at that point as well.

Not a terrible option.

To me the only upgrade over Plekanec out there this year is Marleau, but we are unlikely to be able to land THE big fish.

Plekanec to me is a good 2nd line center, but its been said many times over our top 6 could use more size...the mix might not be right to commit to him (along with Gomez, Gionta and Cammalleri) for the next 4-5 seasons.

Matthew Lombardi is a decent Plan C, but he is a downgrade. However signing him would allow the Habs to add a winger.

Plan D of giving Jokinen 1 year at a reasonable dollar figure isn't a bad one. Hopefully there are UFA centers available next summer that would be a better fit for our organization.

I'd rather over pay in a Carter or Sharp deal.

I hope people don't forget that Pleks' value isn't limited to point production when looking at other candidates. He was also one of our most defensively responsible forward last season and was used in every possible situation. Replacing his versatility will not be easy.

i doubt we can find a gm dumb enough to take Gomez's contract....the only way i could see is someone that is just as overpaid as Gomez...and that wouldnt help in freeing cap space for Plekanec

Being ready doesn't mean Eller will play on one of the first two lines, and not necessarely as a center.

Jeez........
Who should they have brought back last year though?

The only ones that may have helped to me would have been Bouillon and maybe Lang. And they're debatable.

The rest Tanguay, Schneider, Brisebois, Dandenault, Kovalev, Koivu, Kostopolous, etc don't really see it. And I wonder if Komisarek's shoulder is a chronic problem?

Don't see much lost, last year anyway.

Streit is one of the very few of recent years should have been kept, in my opinion.
