    Very disappointed in Bettman's complete lack of a sense of humor. He totally should have had them pipe in artificial booing while he was speaking.

     

    Congrats especially to Julien BriseBois, Ryan McDonagh, and Mikhail Sergachev. 

    That would briefly make the moment about him, and he wouldn't do that during the Stanley Cup presentation.

     

    Maybe the draft.

    It cost the Rangers a 2nd rounder to offload the final year of Marc Staal's deal ($5.7M cap hit, $3.2M in salary remaining).  There's the early market-setter for clearing money without retention.

    Is it possible he could be bought out? I'm not sure why he agreed to be moved to Detroit.

     

    Unless his plan is to get traded at the deadline to a contender, maybe?

    Franois Gagnon reported awhile ago that the Habs will make (have made?) qualifying offers to Domi, Hudon, Evans, Mete, Ouellet, Juulsen, and McNiven. The rest of the AHLers are a bit of a guess but their services are probably not going to be retained. 

     

    Don't think Bergevin has made a statement about the UFAs, but I'd bet that none of them get another contract from the Habs.

    Or not. Blandisi re-signed.

    * Domi

    * Mete

    * Juulsen

    * Hudon ?

    * Folin ?

    * Ouellet ?

    I think they’ll both be great players (along with tkachuk), problem is we needed both the centre (since forever) and Hughes is exactly the type of dman you need in today’s game.

    I have a theory, and I'm probably galaxy-braining it too much, but I don't think we get Suzuki in the deal with Vegas without drafting Kotkaniemi first. 

     

    If we don't already have Kotkaniemi in the system, do you think the Pacioretty deal goes down as is? Or does the Vegas GM look at the lack of centre depth in the Habs organization and think, "If he wants Suzuki I gotta try to squeeze more out of this deal."

     

    I know, my brain is incredibly wrinkled and the size of a house, but I honestly think Kotkaniemi was the right choice even if he doesn't end up as the better player of those drafted after him.

    Hainsey was lost in 2005 (he got claimed on the ill-fated re-entry waiver system at that after clearing regular waivers at the beginning of the year so they lost him by trying to play him) and went on to play on with Columbus, Atlanta, and Carolina before the Habs signed Murray.  Even had the Habs not waived him, there's no guarantee that he'd have remained with the organization for eight more years before they signed Murray in 2013.

    I thought he was waived to play in the AHL during the lockout but Columbus broke the "Gentleman's Agreement" and claimed him anyway?

    According to Francois Gagnon of RDS, a deal is imminent in the range of $4M per year for 3-5 years: https://www.rds.ca/hockey/canadiens/entente-imminente-entre-edmundson-et-le-ch-1.7740951?ap=1

    Edmundson shouldn't get a penny over what Chiarot is making. I know he has a Stanley Cup ring, but I have a hard time believing he's going to get a better offer anywhere else this year with something like 28 of 31 teams feeling some kind of cap crunch (either internal or the usual.)

     

    And the logic behind the signing still doesn't make any sense unless Bergevin has a trade involving Chiarot in his back pocket for Weber's LD partner.

    I would think in this instance, Mete would be on the move (though if Edmundson doesn't sign, I still think Mete is on the move).  Kulak and Romanov battle for the other LD spot with the other perhaps taking RD3 if they're comfortable moving over.  Juulsen is probably 7 by default because of his waiver status. 

    Gonna package Domi and Mete in a "Who wants to negotiate with Ferris?" deal?


  9. Okay say he signs and then go with probable pairings based on NHL work to date:

     

    Chiarot - Weber

    Kulak - Petry

    Edmundson - Mete

     

    Romanov, Juulsen, Fleury either 7th D or AHL...

     

    Plus Olofsson, Leskinen, Alzner, Brook in the minors...

     

    This has got to be a precursor to another move, right? I know you can never have enough defensemen but we have enough defensemen.

  11. I never understood the whole "Bring in guys from the same country because they'll help each other out" narrative. If I'm in another country and run into a random Canadian the novelty wears off after approximately 5 minutes.

     

    One exception to that would be if a player might need a bit of help adjusting to learning English as a second language and needing a player to translate for the coaching staff.

    my preference though would be bring in some more Finns and swedes:

    1)  Weber, Tatar and a 3rd for Laine.

    2). Drouin, Mete, alzner and a 1st and second for OEL and Hjalmarsson and Stepan, (takes out $19m from their payroll for two years when they are trying to cut costs and need picks).  Stepan becomes our third line centre for one year.

    3) Danault and Domi to oilers for Puljujarvi,  Bouchard and a 2nd

    4) resign Petry for 5 years

    1) The Jets trade doesn't completely work with their cap situation (although some salary retention on Tatar might be enough for the Jets to squeeze in their other needs.)

    2) The Coyotes trade, well, if you can convince 2 players to waive NMC's to come to Montreal then we'll absolutely need to burn you at the stake for witchcraft. However if Arizona is super intent on dropping salary as rumoured then this kind of trade would help them out. (Habs take on $17 million in salary in year one ($9 million in signing bonuses), Coyotes take on ~$10 million in salary in year one (~$3.5 million in signing bonuses.))

    3) The Oilers trade doesn't work for them personnel or cap wise. Danault said publicly that he thinks he's a top 6 center and won't give it up without a fight, so Edmonton would trade for him to play behind McDavid and Draisaitl? He wouldn't even unpack his suitcase the entire year, nor look Ken Holland in the eye.) And even signing Domi (another center) at the low end of his worth only gives them about $2 million to sign 4 guys (one of whom is RFA Ethan Bear who will take up about 200% of that cap space.)

     

    If somehow all of those trades went through though the Habs would have ~$11 million in cap space with 1 forward roster spot to fill and a better backup goalie still needed, and there would be enough expiring contracts that they should be able to afford their key guys getting raises in the following 2 seasons.
