New Jersey looks primed to make some noise in the postseason.

Canadiens?

Not so much.

But they made it interesting

    gainey was looking for a top six forward that was the rumour not a second round pick.

    not sure  there HAS to be conflict, at least not right away.

    both goalies will get a nice raise as restricted free agents.

    both are still young.

    both will get a chance to play next year

    I think the extra money might calm them down – I know I would be calmer if someone gave me 2.5 million to play around 30 or 40 nights a year.

    Very true,i just want to ice the lineup that i feel gives us the best chance to win every night. We haven’t clinched anything yet. We can play maxwell,laps,pyatt or any other call up they want to after it says “x- montreal” in the standings in order to rest some vets for the playoffs.

    Did Shiloh sign you to fill in for him while he seems to be a prolonged abscence?

     

    - I shall always remember Captain Koivu.

    Actually I met him at the preview screening this week at the CBC and he was really nice. I even wore my Canadiens tie and he had a good laugh about it. He said i was better looking than his father in law so I can’t hate the guy.

    its true that they both will want to be the #1.

    its ALSO true that the Habs control the contracts – because restricted free agency is controlled by the team.

    at the end of the day, unless the habs can get a top 6 forward or a top 4 defenceman, why would they just give another team a top prospect young goalie??

    the habs are in the driver’s seat on these 2 contracts.

    Didn’t Ottawa get skunked in the Battle of Ontario against the Leafs four games to zero? Not very elite of them.

     

    “Hey Richard, two minutes for looking so good!”

    Based on W-L, Price’ll be out the door.

    the offer sheet is a declaration of war against the other GM.

    the GM”s have to work together – and yet compete – at the same time.

    the offer sheet for halak declares a direct war against the habs -AND indirectly its a declaration of “non compliance” against the other GM’s as well.

    no – I don’t think we’ll see an offer sheet.

    I still can’t believe that Gainey was ready to ship halak to Philly (of all teams) for a 2nd round draft choice.

    can you imagine philly with halak?
