  1. Habs sign Lindgren - 750k per for 3 years

    Wow, that's quite the bargain. Hasn't proved much, but his NHL numbers were pretty nice. Given his age, i figured he'd be looking for more. But i guess being surrounded by Waite and Price isn't slumming it either.
  2. The media appears to have NYR also in sellers mode, but they are in the WC race, so i don't really put much into speculation. McD is 28 going on 29 this summer and is a lefty. While i agree there is some politics there, i think Bergy has made it clear he doesn't give a 2 F's about unpopular moves if it helps the team. NYR probably don't have a replacement in the pipeline for him, and their bottom 4 isn't really amazing either. I can't see their motivation for this unless they were stacking up for a run.
  3. I don't know how you guys feel, but i would do a Pacioretty / McDonough straight up. Maybe throw in a 4th or 5th just to sweeten it. The back-end needs such a retooling, and i see nothing of a top 2 on the left-side in our cupboard. Free agent pool looks like crap too.
  4. Bergevin......

    ... and 20 assists, which puts him in a 3-way tie for top 10 in points for a defenseman. Not bad for a 39 year old. 0.5pts/game isn't too shabby.
  5. Another trade to announce

    Another great indicator of their priority on developing their prospects, eh?
  6. Another trade to announce

    Are we needing to make space for a #1 center in Laval? Were we deficient in RW, somehow? This is a head scratcher - Holland had 18 pts already.
  7. Permanent Rumour Thread

    Wasn't there a two-year offer made at some point too? Anyone know what the numbers were for that, or has it been mentioned here already?
  8. Alzner Signs With Montreal

    This is a decent upgrade on Emelin. $500k more for a helluva lot less turnovers and brain farts. We'll miss the hits, but as The Cucumber stated, he could stabilize the 2nd pairing quite well. Petry can take some more liberties offensively now.
  9. I want to down vote this.
  10. Defence woes

    Ugh. Chalk it up as due dilligence and nothing more? Stats-wise, he's a bottom pair, and we've already got Schlemko for that.
  11. Defence woes

    Markov is apparently asking for $7m over 2 years and Bergy hasn't signed that yet. WTF. We've had him on the cheap his entire career and we can't give this last contract to him?
  12. Schlemko a Hab...

    He was a waiver claim twice (which doesn't bode well either, mind you), and the other two times he was a free agent. Technically, this is his first time being traded.
  13. Schlemko a Hab...

    Seems like an expensive depth player, but maybe that's just me. I guess he'll be paired with Benn and battle that spot with Davidson. Looks like he gets injured fairly often, though. I guess Jerabek is likely to slot into the top 4 now? Or will it be Schlemko/Jerabek/Davidson for 5/6 spot?
  14. Keep Galchenyuk!

    Agreed. That is the cheapest goals/$ in the NHL, by a country mile. It would be poor asset management to dump that before his contract is up, unless you are getting the moon in return. Throw in Mars for good measure. Gally for Leddy + Beauvillier is flat out too good to be true. I'd almost think it would be just Gally straight up for Leddy. Leddy, as mentioned, is 40+pts per year lefty signed at 5.5m for almost his entire prime, cheaper than Markov. That's a steal in itself. Beauvillier went straight to the NHL and seems to have legit upside (i admittingly know nothing about him). I would have thought they'd give Strome instead, seeing as he's been a bust so far, given his pedigree. The question must be asked: why the hell would Snow do such a move? He just spent a 1st rounder to protect his forwards, and now he's going to give that to Bergy?
  15. Agreed. Like most folks around here, I've been very skeptical on The direction of the farm team and our success rate of NHL graduates from the last 5+ years now.
