But he signs Ales Hemsky as the 10th top 9 guy with Hudon in the minors.

 

I'm pretty sure Hemsky will be slotted in the LTIR...

Here's a good read of an evaluation of the habs moves this summer.

have to say - it's pretty much exactly how I feel

From that article:

The battle with their 38-year-old career-long Hab on his contract might be the most puzzling thing of all — especially when you take into account the rumours that Montreal was sniffing out the possibility of bringing back expansion draft pick Alexei Emelin.

 

Is the writer advocating that the Habs should just cave to Markov's 2/12 demands?  That wouldn't be very smart.  And Alexei Emelin was traded to Nashville more than a week ago so no, they're not sniffing around the possibility of bringing him back.  That's pretty lazy writing there to miss something that obvious.

That article is dumb. 

 

It calls the Habs the third worst team in the off-season. 

 

Then it looks at Washington and goes all advanced stats, posting Sean Tierneys GAR advanced stats chart as its reason why for the bottom two teams.  Look where the Habs are in that chart. 

So Washington and Chicago are the two worst cause the advanced stats, but the Habs are third cause other reasons, even when the chart shows that they have small improvement.  That chart also assumes Markov is gone and the Habs don't spend their remaining $9.5 million in cap space.

75-76-75gms in 3 yrs before hip surgery last year, so who knows, but that is still a nice pessimistic outlook you got there.:popcorn:

Why thanks!

 

Honestly, I carry a grudge from 2009 when I had drafted him pretty high in all of my fantasy leagues... and he played all of 22 games.  Can't shake the feeling that he's a bandaid boy, but sit corrected to see the decent GP the last 3 years.

Hey, for the price, even if ends up injured, is worth the risk that he can be a solid 3rd line RW and don't they say he is pretty good defensively, so at least he shouldn't hurt the team when out there. Will need to wait and see if surgery has slowed him up too much though?
