- Comment on Habs’ Subban expects arbitrator to decide on his contract (2014-08-02 14:06:21)
Its not the 50's anymore Ian. You keep your stars and fill in after that. Every cup contender does it contrary to your description of spreading it out over a roster. Chi, LA, BOS all pay their stars market value and then fill in with what they can after the fact. Unless you mean before the last 7 Cup winners. BTW- being "Disappointed" in PK? ugh .... He is looking out for himself, for his career and under pressure from various agencies to follow through. Careful not to get hurt falling off your soap box while preaching what someone else should do with their life.

Geez reading some of the clowns on here today talking about contract comparables from up to 4 years ago, or that PK is worth less than Markov makes me glad I avoided the site yesterday. I think I'll come back in September when most of these types have faded out.

Pretty sure Habs will have an announcement to make tomorrow.

I'll say $70M over 8 years $7.5 x 2 $8.5 x2 $9.0 x2 $10 x2 $8.75M AAV
- Comment on Eller agrees to four-year, $14-million deal with Habs (2014-07-25 06:45:00)
I expect a great season for Bourque this year. After his concussion from an Orr sucker punch he was scared to do much, but I think the playoffs woke up a desire that he had buried for the last few years.... plus he will be looking for a contract.
- Comment on Leaving Habs was ‘family decision’ for Brisebois (2014-07-24 07:23:05)
DD 38 pts /82 gms without Patches DD 55 pts /82 gms with Patches Is it really Patches who benefits from DD, or the other way around?

Hands has to be Lemieux or Jagr
- Comment on Brisebois leaving job as Habs player development coach (2014-07-21 08:16:39)
I guess when he's 28 or 29 he can move to centre? Crosby, Toews, Getzlaf, Spezza, MacKinnon, etc etc etc all played at center right away and it didn't hurt them at all aside from learning their postion at the NHL level. I'm not suggesting Galchenyuk is the next Crosby, but he is or could have been, an elite level center if he hasn't been stunted already. I don't understand the fear of allowing him to get better before his 30th birthday. If we can put up with DD at center and have some call him "the best we have" then playing Galchenyuk at his natural position should be nothing.

If Doughty or Keith were up for a contract this season do you really think they would be looking at $7M ?
