  1. Exactly. I'd be pissed off if they bought him out, because then we might as well have traded Garon for Huet :nono:
  2. I like the price, and I like the contract length. This is basically gonna be a one season audition. He has a chance to show his dedication to the team and his improvement. And quite frankly, I think he'll impress those that aren't so negatively close-minded about him. Whether he is worth sticking around for another year is dependant foremost by the production of youth behind him and, to a lesser degree, just how much better a hockey player he is. I'm glad he's back...for now.
  3. Talks with Theodore are supposed to start today (monday) but other than that it's been silent.
  4. Nothing so far. I like every move Gainey has done (aside from drafting Price, but that I have learned to accept.)
  5. And given the chance, I would. However, I don't have that chance, so I do the next best thing... I ask you guys :/)
  6. I know he spent some time in Europe, but not much. What was he doing the rest of the year? Was he sitting around playing NHL 2005 and wondering why there wasn't a Create a Player? Or was he working on his skating? Shooting? Interviews? I'd like to know, cause it would really help me gauge his dedication to the Habs, and to the sport. If he spent the summer working on his skating, I'd be ecstatic. Let's face it, if the guy could skate and play D, we'd love him. So any word?
  7. Wouldn't "angles and odds" hinder a big goalie adapting to the new changes? They've been relying on taking up more space rather than having the speed and reflexes of a smaller goalie. All they've had to do was pad themselves like the Michelin Man and then learn the angles. I think the smaller, faster goalies will do better than the bigger guys because they won't have to adapt as much.
  8. I can see Bulis having a breakout year and getting the 2nd line job... But 1st line is a tad lofty
  9. I expect Gainey will go after a backup goalie for the league minimum. I think Danis should spend the whole year in Hamilton, playing as many games as possible.
  10. Thank you! I see I'm not the only one that thinks Dandenault was signed as a winger first, D man second. Until I see a trade, Dandenault is the fall back guy if one of the defencemen can't cut it. However, I disagree with you about Bulis. There is a spot for him on the Habs. If there isn't, they should make a spot for him.
  11. We don't have 8 defenceman. Dandenault can play wing. If any of the defensemen suck, they can be traded for a bucket of pucks, and have Dandenault take over their spot on D
  12. What is it with the Rangers hard on for Habs talent lately? We trade them Balej (and a 2nd round pick?), we trade them a 2nd and 3rd round pick to move up in the 2nd round, and now they sign Jason Ward days after being released. Maybe Hainsey/Hossa is next?
  13. The brilliancy behind the Dandenault signing is that he can start as a winger and replace any defenceman that proves he doesn't have it (Streit, Hainsey.) If the D flourish, Dandenault stays a winger. But if Hainsey or Streit suck, Dandenault moves down to take their place. Just a possible scenario to consider
  14. Where does he fit? I see he plays both D and the wing, but how good is he at either?
  15. Cancel Gonchar off that list, Penguins picked him up at 5 million for 5 years. [Edited on 2005/8/3 by Trizzak]
  16. Alright, take out the word "monumental." Even if Gainey screws up (in my opinion) he still deserves his job.
  17. Boston had to make a big splash in the free agent market. I believe at one point they had a roster of 3 players!!! Not to mention, they have to surround Thorton with talent if they want him to stay.
  18. hahahaha yeah! Fisticuffs for the final roster spot!
  19. Believe me, I'm trying to wait it out. But the more D men that get signed in rapid succession, the more I'm going to be grinding my teeth. Top forwards we can wait for, there are enough to go around (not to mention the steller crop available next year) but defencemen are a pressing need for the Habs, nearly to the point of desperation. If we wait till all the top D are overpayed but signed, and end up with "Joe Shmoe" for exactly what he's worth, I'll consider it a monumental failure by Gainey.
  20. oh, and Brian Leetch and Brian Rafalski. That's all I can think of at the moment.
  21. I think Dan McGillis and Jiri Slegr are still available
  22. Niedermayer and Gonchar spring to mind. But I'd consider Niedermayer to be untouchable
  23. I'll admit, I'm a tad nervous. Quite frankly, as much as I'd love a talented winger on the top line, I wouldn't want the Habs to overpay him. Or at least not too much. If we can't get a winger cause the numbers don't add up, fine. What concerns me is the number of defencemen signing happening within two days of free agency. Breezer leaving was supposed to give us freedom to improve. Now everyone on my wishlist is gone - Foote to Columbus, Aucoin to Chicago, Zubov back with Dallas, Therien, Hatcher, Rathje to Philly. The top guys are dropping like flies. I'm all for giving Hainsey ice time
