Hamrlik for Wayne Simmonds of LA KINGs. 21 yrs old, rookie season, +22, 40 pts, 6'2", a little on the light side, but he's only 21 and can bulk up over time. I don't think Hamrlik would say no to playing in sunny LA, especially since it's a blossoming playoff destined team. That's a cap saving of about $4.5 M, let Mara walk, and voila, we can afford Plekanec! Pair PK with Markov, Gorges with Gill, and Spacek with O'Byrne. I wouldn't mind having another look at Alex Henry on D as the 7th; he's big, strong and is willing to drop the gloves. Plus he can play as a gritty forward come playoff time.
I'd trade Sergei to any taker---at his best potential, he's Koivu, and he's as inconsistent as Kovalev. I'd look into signing Manny Malhotra at $1mil per for 2 seasons. Put him on the 4th line with Darche and Pyatt, let Metro walk. I'd give Pacioretty one last shot on the 3rd line with Lapierre and Moore. As for AK, he's in a contract year, with his brother gone, the book closed, he has a shot of getting his head straight and playing good hockey.
If Pouliot can put up consistent numbers throughout the season and boost up his value, I'd consider trading him for a high impact playoff performer. I think Latendresse would have played better in the Flyers series.
The Habs have made the playoffs 5 of the last 6 seasons. I'm pretty sure they'll make it again. What they need are the missing pieces that made them unsuccessful vs a physical and skilled team like the Flyers and retain what gave them success vs. strong teams like the Penguins and Caps.
Retain both goalies, expect a raise to 2 million for Halak.

the CURSE OF THE GOLD MEDAL
Every remaining playoff team besides Montreal has a member of Team Canada (Detroit has Babcock in case you were wondering).
This "Canada's Team" crap is just another reason why we're underdogs, and besides, everyone loves a Cinderella story, especially in sports.

I hope they write this on the board in the dressing room.
