  1. :hlogo: I would go into the play-offs with the 4 centre's we now have as Metropolit is a decent centre good on face offs, & hopefully Lang will return. What we really need is more toughness to get by Philly & Boston also we need another D-man with Bouillon out as I would only use Briseboise to give Schneider a rest once in awhile. I would go after R.Smyth, I. Laperriere & J. Leoplod from Colorado. Offer Tanguay, Dandenault, D'Agostini, Chipchura & O'Byrne. We would be giving up 2 UFA's & receiving 2 UFA's but Tangauy's salary would have to be moved to bring in Smyth. Our line up would look like this: Halak/Price D- Schneider/Markov, Komisarek/Hamrlik, Leopold/Gorges depth Briseboise. Up front Kostitsyn/Plecanek/Kovalev, Higgins/Koivu/Smyth, Latendresse/Lapeirre/Kostopolous, Pacioretty/Metropolit/Laperriere. Play Pac's on third line until Lat's is back and Stewart on the fourth line. (depth with Lat's back Stewart & Laraque)

  3. This Trade is horrible! If we do make the play-offs and have any hope of getting past Philly & Boston we need to get alot tougher. So we got Laraque, big deal he'll see the ice come play-off time about as much as S. Avery will keep his mouth shut. We need d-men who can actually knock somebody down & some forwards with some grit. Komisarek our only true bruising D-man looks like he shouldn't even be playing as he looks like he's hurting big time. Kovalev & the 2 Kostitsyn's give the puck away more then our shots on goal total every game. I truely think it's time to say good-bye to Alex I'm pretty sure Washington would love to grap him to play with Ovechkin. I don't know what we could get for him but I'd take T. Fleischman & a draft pick as I don't thing we should re-sign him next year anyway, this would really open up some cap space. Go after Derek Morris, O. Jokinen & D. Carcillo from Pheonix offer Plecanek, Tanguay, D'Agostini & Gorges ( also send Bouillon if needed to get the deal done). Then go after A. Frolov & M. Greene from L.A for the 2 Kostitsyn's & O'byrne. Then finally offer Chipchura to Colorado for I. Laperriere. We would look like this Komisarek, Markov - Morris, Hamrlik - Greene, Schneider depth Briseboise, Dandenault. Up front we would look like this Latendresse/Jokinen/Frolov, Higgins/Koivu/Fleischman, Pacoretty/Lapierre/Kostopolous, Carcillo/Laperriere/Laraque depth Dandenault, Begin. Come on Bob it's our 100 year anniversary & we're sliding out of the play-off picture fast & your answer is Mathieu Schneider. I know these trades are far fetched but something big needs to me done hopefully Schneider is just the first very small piece of the puzzle.
  4. Send Kovalev & Halak to Washington for Nylander, Fleischman & B. Johnson.
  5. :hlogo: I say go after either Patrick Marleau or Patrick O'Sullivan for our first line centre. Use Latendresse, Perezhogin, Kostopolous & Dandenault to go after either of the above. Which ever one we can get the best deal on without moving anybody other then these 4. Then sign Glen Murray. We look like this up front: 1'st line Patrick Marleau or O'Sullivan centering Tanguay & Kovalev. 2'nd line Plecanek centering the two Kostitsyn's. 3'rd line Koivu centering Higgins & Murray. 4'th line Lapierre centering Begin & Laraque. spares Pacoiretty, D'Agostin, Chipchura, Lehoux & Stewart.
  6. :hlogo: Go after a big tough D-man who can log lots of minutes and play with Hamrlik on the second pairing. Trade Ryder, O'Byrne, Chipchura and Kostopolous to Phoenix for N. Boynton and F. Sjostrom. Then Trade for one of the best face-off men in the league M. Sillinger. Trade Begin, Dandenault, Gorges and the rights to Perezhogin to NYI for Sillinger, T. Hunter and R. Martinek. Then we look like this Goal: Huet, Price D: Komisarek/Markov, Boynton/Hamrlik, Martinek/Bouillon 7'th man Briseboise. Up Front : Kostitsyn/Plecanek/Kovalev, Higgins/Koivu/Sjostrom, Latendresse/Sillinger/Kostitsyn, Lapierre/Smolinski/Hunter. Throw in Milroy and Locke if needed be to make these deals. Also this leaves us M. Streit to trade to NYR as they badly need a puck moving D-man ask for P. Parenteau to play in Hamilton. Also I would make a minor league trade J. Gleed for F. Lessard and then sign Lessard to a contract and call him up as our extra forward to dress when we need a tough guy. When all is said and done we would have one of the best defense in the league with four good solid lines. And sit Smolinski if we need a tough guy dressed and go with Lessard/Lapierre/Hunter as the fourth line.
  7. :hlogo: After watching the game last night and seeing Ryder bring nothing to the table again as has been the case game after game, please BOB go get Koivu & Higgins some help. I thing with the way we're playing and with Huet's goaltending we can really make some noise in the post season, but we need an impact winger to play with Koivu and Higgins. Watching Koivu discussing something with Ryder on the bench last night ( more then likely one of Ryder's many poison shifts) and seeing the frustration on Koivu's face and Ryder sitting there all smiles I think Koivu is fed up with him. Here is a list of players I would move to go find an impact winger for them. Of course Ryder, Dandenault, Halak, Grabovsky, Locke and a draft pick and maybe move Streit with them for a solid, rugged, mean right handed shot on D to take some of the weight of off Komisarek's shoulders when it comes to getting nasty. So could this group of players and a pick bring these 2 things back in a separate trade or 2 trades. Here are some possibilities of impact wingers I would love to see become a habs possibly one of these A. Frolov, M. Hossa, M. Cammalleri, T. Ruutu, E. Cole or N. Zherdev. If none of these could be gotten then some other cheaper choices would be J. P Dumont, N. Hagman or F. Sjostrom. As for the rugged D, possibilites: S. Weber, N. Boynton or P.Boucher. Anybody agree with these 2 things being needed #1 being a winger for Kovu & Higgins.
  8. :hlogo: I agree with a couple of post, one being we need a good two way player and puck handler to play with Saku & Higgins & a right handed shot on D to play with Hamrlik, someone who can play the PP & PK. I thing we can get both guys in Dallas in N. Hagman & P Boucher. What we would we have to give up to get them with out hurting our line up I'm not sure, but here's a handleful of guys that we could move from our line up Ryder, Streit, Dandenault, Halak as Dallas could be intersted in another goalie to back-up for Smith if they do in fact move Turco. Also Grabovsky & Locke from the AHL. I'm not saying all of these players, 2 or 3 for the above mentioned. Maybe Ryder, Streit & Halak could land them or Ryder, Streit & Grabovsky. Then we move Dandenault somewhere for an enforcer. Call up Danis to back-up Huet if we move Halak. We would look like this going into the stretch run: Goal: Huet, Danis D: Markov/ Komy, Hamrlik/Boucher, Bouillon/Gorges 7'th man Briseboise. Forward: Kovalev/Plecanek/Kostitsyn, Higgins/Koivu/Hagman, Latendresse/Lapierre/Kostitsyn, Begin/Smolinski/Kostopolous and an enforcer as our extra man. Possibilities: D. J King, D. Hordichuk, F. Lessard, Z. Stortini ????????
  9. :hlogo: Okay, we are rolling along pretty good again, but after seeing the Bruins game can we last thru a seven game series with teams that are going to manhandle us. I think we would come out on top of a best of seven with Boston but we would be so beat up how much farther could we go. We need to add some toughness and a winger to play with Koivu & Higgins. Also it's about time Bob tried to redeem himself for his Mike Ribiero For Janna Niinamaa trade. Two trades I would like to see is with Chicago & the Rangers. First to Chicago Ryder, Halak & O,Byrne throw in either Milroy or Locke if need be in exchange for T. Ruutu, D. Byfuglien and P. Lalime. Ruutu gives us a winger to play with Higgins & Koivu, Byfuglien gives us some toughness on D and a bombing shot for the PP. Lalime gives us an experienced back up for Price next year. Second trade : Streit & Kostopolous to N.Y.R for Ryan Hollweg, F. Lessard & P. Parenteau. Hollweg gives us an everyday fourth liner with speed and grit, Lessard gives us an enforcer to play when needed (Boston) & Parenteau gives us depth in Hamilton and takes the place of either Milroy or Locke. We end up saving a million and having a line up that looks like this. Goal: Huet, Lalime D: Markov/Komisarek, Hamarlik/Byfuglien, Bouillon/Gorges (7'th man Briseboise) Forwards: Kostitsyn/Plecanek/Kovalev, Higgins/Koivu/Ruutu, Latendresse/Smolinski/Kostitsyn, Hollweg/Lapierre/Dandenault (Lessard & Begin) Dress Lessard instead of Dandenault for games where we need him and let Begin get healthy for the playoffs These are just a couple of trades I would make if I were Bob, They might not be possible to make, but who agrees we need a winger for Koivu, & Higgins & some toughness.
  10. :hlogo: The best tough guy available that can also play a little is Francis Lessard, he used to be a D-man but has been moved to wing. The Bulldogs just played Hartford and the guy was first star of the game. Send Milroy & J. Gleed to New York for Lessard & P. Parenteau. Lessard stays with the Habs & Parenteau replaces Milroy in Hamilton. Milroy may even join the Rangers.
  11. :hlogo: If Bob wants Price in the big show for good he's got to give him the #1 job and bring up Halak for back up. With Lethenon out for Atlanta this is the perfect time to move Huet who has really helped out his value with the way he's been playing. But I say if we can add more offense then lets go with Price and Halak. Trade Huet, Ryder, Kostopolous, & Grabovski (as Atlanta also needs a European centre with speed to play with Kovalchuk) ask for Hossa & P. Dupuis & 2 minor leaguers G. Desbiens & B. Valabik or even one of the 2 minor leaguers. We give up roughly 7.6 mill in salary and take on 6.8. Dupuis would be a good fit for our third line with Smolinski & Latendresse he brings more speed & offense to the table then Kostopolous and still plays with lots of grit. Then that leaves Koivu, Hossa, Kovalev, Plecanek, Higgins & Kostitsyn for our top 2 lines. Also there had been a rumour ogf Kovalev to Calgary for Tanguay I'd make that move in a heart beat. Then our top line would be Koivu, Tanguay & Hossa with a second line of Plecanek, Higgins & Kostitsyn as they were great together at the end of last year and I can't understand why Carbo hasn't put them back together. There is one more piece I would try and get and that is a fouth line tough guy to play when needed. Zack Stortini who policed the baby Habs to the Calder Cup last year would be good. Maybe trade Milroy or Locke for him. Then we look like this: Goal: Price, Halak Defense: Markov Komy, Hamarlik-Briseboise, Bouillon-Striet, depth Gorges & Dandenault Forward: Tangauay- Koivu-Hossa, Higgins - Plecanek - Kostitsyn, Smolinski - Latendresse - Dupuis, Begin - Lapierre - Dandenault and maybe rotate Gorges in on the fourth line and also Stortini when needed. I guess you also figured out Chipchura is gone back to Hamilton to play everyday as I think Lapierre got the message and has played awesome since being sent down. This also leaves Murray in the picture when he gets back and he would be a fourth line file in also. Go with Murray, Begin & Stortini for the fourth line for extra toughness when needed.
  12. :hlogo: Ship Ryder, G. Murray, J. Gorges & D. MIlroy to Edmonton for F. Pasani, Z. Stortini & M.A Pouliot. Then we look like this upfront : Latendresse/Koivu/Kovalev, Higgins/Plecanek/Kostitsyn, Pasani/Smolinski/Kostopolous, Begin/Lapierre/Pouliot(Stortini) Depth with Lahti and Streit. Getting Stortini would be great because we need someone for a fourth line enforcer and we have nobody now. Plus the guy is a great energy player and won't hurt us defensively.
  13. :hlogo: After we sign Markov and Souray (or maybe before we sign them to show them how serious we are about winning the cup) we should go after Nik Antropov I think this guy is going to be the steal of the UFA's and he would be a perfect fit for Koivu & Kovalev for our #1 line, it might ignite a fire under Kovalev and maybe he would play a full season. Then the next guy I see helping us the most is Corey Sarich. Pair him up with Souray & we have a great top four along with Markov & Komy. This would make us an instant contender if we could afford all of them. We should save some money by letting Bonk, Johnson & Aebischer walk and maybe trading Ryder & Dandenault. We would look like this for next season. Goal: Huet, Halak D: Markov - Komy, Souray - Sarich, Bouillon - Streit, depth in Cote, Gorges & Biron Upfront: Antropov/Koivu/Kovalev, Higgins/Plecanek/Kostitsyn, Latendresse/Grabovski/Perezhogin, Lapierre/Begin/ Murray or a prospect or maybe another UFA like Pascal Dupuis. Actually what I would like even better is trade Murray with Ryder & Dandenault to Colorado for Marek Svatos & Ian Laperierre. Then play Svatos with Grabovski & Latendresse & Laperierre with Lapeirre & Begin. Have Perezhogin as our depth guy so we can rest Begin quit abite thru the regular season to keep him healthy.
  14. :hlogo: Next year they need to me left together and go and sign Nik Antropov to play with them.
