5 million for Gionta was too much
6 million for Camm was too much
2.2 million for Gill was too much


Whatever to the haters...

I would have been very sad to see Turtleneck Pleks leave. Glad to hear this is done, and I look forward to seeing the cap hit... Hopefully the 5mil estimate is MAX, and maybe a bit lower, but eh, he would have gotten more if he went UFA so there is no way around it. Even if he took 5mil he is taking a paycut to stay in Montreal IMO.

Plekanec is a homegrown player that is a hard worker who doesn't create waves and accept whatever job he's given. He fits well in Martin's plans and has chemistry with Cammy.

Glad to see you back gangsta.

I agree with you. Overpaid by .500K-1 million max, but not that bad. We have a lot of stability in the lineup now, Pierre can move to other things.

This is just what I was telling "coldplay" over msn. He has time to become a playoff performer he's still young. Don't worry guys this is great news imo

No one would have given him more than that on the open market, disappointed the Habs didn't push for 4 or 4.5.

I like the guy, but I'm not entirely sold, and this is big money.
Funny that we were able to shut down 4 of the best players in the NHL and Cammalleri scored a bunch of goals yet Plekanec disapeared

I guess "knowledgeable" Hab fans would rather have a guy putting up a point per game and floating at center ice than playing a team game, plying both ways and shutting down top players on the opposition.

eh 5M is a bit much. Trying for Marleau would have been nice, but seeing how going after Sundin screwed us a bit, i guess its ok. Now to get him a good winger.

I hope we deal the Kostitsyns, they're talented, but they wont flourish with us. Too much media drama, too much attention, get rid of em. Get somebody else to fill in.

I hope this means we are looking at shipping the Kostitysn Bros out and bringing in some size and grit to the wings as the division got that much tougher and bigger with Horton and Campbell in Boston.

The only way we can get to a cup is if this kid Eller turns out to be a legitimate 1st or 2nd line center in a few years.

Plek
Eller
Gomez

Gauthier knows what the open market would give him, he is wise to retain Plekanec as like many have said there is nothing better out there. This correlates with Halak being traded as the money was not there for both. I am no cap expert but I think this means that some guys from the farm will be seeing regular duty in Mauntreal this upcoming season. Pacioretty, White will see regular duty next year. I think Eller is our current answer as the "big" center and the rest of the UFAs are gone. I would like Moore to stay but maybe he is as good as gone.

Exactly. He wasn't a COMPLETE no show like Semin was. People completely go overboard with the "disappearing act". I predict Plekanec being a solid player in the playoffs next year if we make it.

Roy, Horton and Staal signed as RFA...
I didn't mean as a bad thing. I meant at worse he's only overpaid by 1 million. It's worded terribly, but that's what I meant. Good signing.
