Not the best guy out there, he is solid in all 3 zones. Pretty good shot. Decent price.

I think he plays the left side.

Weber Hamrlik

Spacek Gorges

I guess they need someone to play with Markov

Good signing, addresses a definite need. I think Spacek will do well here, and the price is more than decent for what he brings to the table.

It helps that he is coming from a division rival too. weakens them a bit.

Why is everybody knocking this signing already? A decent dman for 3.75m. Leaves some money to be spent at other places.

Gainey is making moves, improving the team, and people are never happy.

I agree totally, drive for 25.

The habs had one of the worst D cores in the league and people complain when thye get a good solid player.

Spacek is fairly decent, but he is 35, although his numbers seem to be going up with his age.

Anybody know if he's ever been paired with Hammer? They are both Czechs of similar age, so maybe they've played together with the Czech team?

Is Bob specifically targeting Czechs? Is Sykora next, then Jagr? ^_^

Newf, have you ever seen Spacek play, he is not soft. He'll surprise you.

this is not a bad move.

don't forget that we lost Schneider, Bouillon and Dandenault (9M total)

Spacek is replacing those guys.

I'm still expecting Bob to replace Komi in another signing or from within or from a trade.

Spacek replacing Schneider, Bouillon and Dandenault is very good for me. I liked Schneids, but I'm not a pro scout. :P

geez newf I am of the opinion that no matter who Bob signs you ain't gonna like it. and we haven't lost Komi yet.

Ok upgrade over Schneider offense/defense, upgrade over Bouillon too.

Good all around defense. , first pass. No problem

Bad thing is the lenght of the contract In 3 years he turns 38.

Not a soft Dman by any stretch. He's a great 2nd pairing guy. Get somebody to play with Markova nd pair him up with Gorges or Hammer (likely Hammer as they are both from the same country I believe!)

I think this may help wake up Hammer too.

hmm...

Markov Beauch

Hammer Spacek

Gorges OByrne/Schneider

Seems preety decent to me!

Don't you guys think you are going a little nuts on Komi. He is a stay at home Dman. He is NOT Scott Stevens or Bobby Orr.

They could sign McKee for a year, he'll block shots and take the body.

That is going to be a small non=physical defence. Bruins and Flyers will feast on that.

I agree with you habsrule. I am not sure where these guys are getting that he is soft or not physical.
