Habs Sign Chris Campoli

Recommended Posts

My first thought was: excellent addition. Next thought: does this mean Subban or Markov are seriously injured/having setbacks? :cry_smile:

I hope not :angry:

Nice pick-up. This guy replaces Wiz as the hired help. I wish you guys would stop worrying about Markov. He's finished...

Like many of you already mentionned, this is a good pick up and for 1.75 million over one year, it won't cost the Habs too much. The bad news is that this probably means Markov will miss a few games at the start of the season...let's hope that he doesn't miss more than 8-10 games.

I think someone tagged it right earlier. We're getting some proven experience without giving up 2nd & 3rd round pics that impairs our future growth. There has been a lot

of rumours going around that the Team is about to do some sort of deal with Weber + ? going somewhere. I just hope that a) we get some muscle( not a goon) who can play physical

in front of the net and in the corners without taking penalties and not letting anybody "run" Price anymore without knowing there will be full consequences for doing so. and b) another

physical presence up front with some scoring ability. I know that sounds like asking for the moon but we are still too small, too soft and JM is too stubborn to change course on his way

to the same predictable game plan.

I don't know if this Gallagher kid will stay around more than the 9 games but maybe he will light a fire under some of our "UMT's" that limit our teams abilities to move into the top echelon of the league.

Oh...UMT's....Under Motivated Types..... :rastapop:

HA HA HA

At some point, you either have to laugh or cry.

Well, all you folks who had enormous faith in Emelin/Diaz will now have your initial optimism put to the test. Either these guys can step in and eat major minutes, or we're basically boned. :flaming:

At this point, it may be less painful to even remember he's on the team. We're in the exact situation we were 2 weeks ago, nothing has changed...aside from a bunch of cap space going up in flames (the Habs aren't in a spot to use LTIR since they're still under the cap so help likely isn't on the way from that avenue).

Bryan McCabe?? Or a trade? Whats next.

The fact that we signed Campoli told me they weren't happy with having to play 2 of Emelin, Diaz, Weber every night.

There's only 1 contract spot left on the 50-man roster so I'm not sure it'd be a signing. If they do go that route, it'll be Paul Mara in all likelihood.

Is that including removing Woywitka?

Yep, he gets subtracted but Callahan was signed to his spot.

Uggh, those two spots wasted on Masse and Lefebvre are burning us. I don't know what they saw in either guy.

There was actually a bidding war for Masse's services after his solid playoff run, though I don't think he's as bad as you do. I'm not sure he's primed for a breakout campaign but he's still a useful piece for Hamilton. Lefebvre I didn't get then and I surely don't now. I sadly suspect their pickups had something to do with the fact they were locals (especially Lefebvre's after some of the media tore a strip out the Habs for not drafting locals). The saddest part about Lefebvre is that this is the 3rd year of a 3 year deal...and there's still 2 years left of it...long live the slide rule.

Fortunately there are teams who have contract spots available; if the Habs had to get rid of someone I'm sure they could find a taker for a giveaway price (futures).

Masse to me will always be the guy the Habs signed due to media pressure. The signing came days after they lost out on Riendeau to the Bruins, and Masse has alwasys seemed like a bad consolation prize for that.

This would be my first choice. I always liked Mara, and wasn't happy both times they let him walk.

Just let Subban play 30 minutes a night until Markov is healthy. Problem solved.
