Your spelling of Darche isn't exactly all that brilliant either.

No other team would of signed Darche for league minimum? Please excuse me for a moment.

Wow that's dirt cheap. Glad he's back, one of the few who's not afraid to go to the net and give everything he got every shift.

Seeing how it could be the final year of his career, if I were him I would have tried to sign else where for more money and less taxes

but then again, there are pretty big benefits for a francophone to play in Montreal, particularly when closing out your career.

Darche probably has 2-3 more years in the role he has now. He's a committed guy who keeps in shape, no reason he can't play until he's 38-39. Maybe there won't be room here indefinitely, but at his current production he can help 3/4 of the team in the NHL. Cap strapped teams love guys like him in the bottom 6.

He asked for a 2 year contract, but PG said no. 1 year at a time, which is logical for a guy is age.

Darche said himself that he loves it here and did not want to go somewhere else. Did not care about more money and less taxes. He wants to play where he's happy and desired. Refreshing attitude in this money oriented world.

Corson played much bigger than what he was, Ryan White reminds me of him at times.

Using Bellows to say we had a big team is quite comical, Bellows played like Cammalleri but 2 inches taller. He played at 190-195 until late in his career when his conditioning came into question(hence the 210lbs) and drop in production.

Muller played most of his career at 195-200lbs. The highest listing I found was 205...that's hardly WELL OVER 200lbs. Gomez is 5'11" 200.

Skrudland is listed at 6' 200lbs.

That post was like using Gomez Darche LeBlanc and Bournival to say we have size.

Darche will be the type of guy who stays with the team, after his playing years, asst coach, scout etc. He had said the grass isn't greener on the other side, it's greener here...great guy!

I could see him starting out as an assistant in Hamilton in a few years.

I think gomez is usually listed around 200, but he seems kinda tubby from what I've seen.

Just curious how old you are? Had you ever seen Bellows play? It sounds like you are just reading stats, and taking them as fact. He was incredibly hard to knock off the puck, very solid. Have you ever stood next to Cammy? If he's 5'8, I'll eat my hat, probably more like 5'7.

Bellows played like Cammy? lol? Comparing Bellows to Cammy now?

Here's a refresher course on Bellows if you have time :

I heard him say on Nos Canadiens and on l'antichambre that he is more interested in the management department. He also as a diploma from McGill in management, so I can't see why the Habs wouldn't hire him in some kind management job.

Well let's be honest, he's made probably over $2M in his NHL career. That's not a lot (hell most guys make more than that in one year) in NHL terms - but that's more than enough to buy a nice house, a nice car for him and his wife, put money away into RSPs for his children's schooling, and have a decent stack of cash left over. He's probably going to have to get a job after hockey (coaching - trainer, etc?) when he's done playing hockey but I don't think he minds. He's living his childhood dream right now.

Did I say 'power forward'? I just can't believe you ever watched him play, there's no way you would compare Bellows to Cammy.

Your right about one thing, you would never mistake him for Wendel Clark, since he had about 400 more points than him.

Not worthless, just overpaid.

He's probably looking for youtube videos to see if he has Bellows and Gary Leeman mixed up...

There are going to be injuries galore this upcoming season (as usual in the modern NHL)

Darche will be needed.

You got issues bro. Constantly belittling posters.resign please. That is 700k less we have to sign a needed player.If he's sought after why is he signing for short money? PG taking the easy way out with another min. wage mid 30's journeyman.
