- Comment on Canadiens recall Aaron Palushaj (2011-10-10 22:28:21)
White is injured, Gallagher can't be called-up because he is in the WHL and he has no contract, Blunden is a proven AHLer who will never play in the NHL again and Weber will play on a fourth line, which is difficult enough for a defenseman, or on D if Spacek can't play. It was between Trotter and Palushaj, and the Habs made it clear that Palushaj was going to be the first call-up when they kept him until the last minute. I would also like to see what Trotter can do, but give Palushaj the first look and let his play dictated if he's staying or if he gets leapfrog by someone else.

Gagne was almost a PPG in the last 25 games of the regular season and the playoffs. If healthy (that's a big IF) he's a player you want to have on your team. My gut feeling is that he'll go back to Philadelphia to complete their top 9. JVR, Giroux, Voracek, Hartnell, Briere, Leino, Gagne, Schenn, Simmonds. Tell me how Philadelphia got weaker again...

How could PG sign Malone, he's under contract for four more years at 4.5M per. As a comparable, Laich is the guy to sign...Do agree with Konopja though. Fourth line could look good with Moen/Konopka/White. Moen will always look like he doesn't belong in nth NHL if you give him 2nd line duty. Konopka is mean, can drop the gloves, and win faceoffs at will (almost...). As much as I would like Wiz to sign, you have to remember one thing: next summer, Price, Subban and Eller will need a new contract. You need to keep some flexibility going forward. In fact there is my projected line up for next season. You'll notice that Desharnais plays on the wing. Montreal is too deep at centern right now, and I think that, given his size, he has more chance to succeed on the wing. Cammy/Pleks/Laich MaxPac/Gomez/Gionta Kostitsyn/Eller/Desharnais Moen/Konopka/White Darche-Pyatt Markov/Emelin Gill/Subban Gorges/Weber Spacek Price Auld or Garon That leave PG with a couple million to play during the season, just in case.
