Moen for McGratton or Peluso Or, sign Staubitz or Barch to two-way contracts Mike Rupp (Prust's former teammate) is also a UFA.

PK for Captain is tempting, though we have to be careful about thrusting too much responsibility on a talented, though exciting, player. See Ovechkin, Alexander. Frankly, I think an "A" for him at this point would be plenty respect and acknowledgement of his importance on the team. I'd give the "C" to Markov, with "A"'s to Prust, Pleks, and Subbie. (Other teams have three "A"'s, some even have four.)

Wow, either would be great. Big Mac is 6'6", 265, a total beast

Each forward line for the LA Kings was over 600 lbs. Here's how the new Habs fare: Max-DD-PAP (580) Chucky-Pleks-Gally (579) Bourque-Eller-Weise (642) BournID-Malhotra-Prust (610)

For a part-time goon, how about: http://www.hockeyfights.com/players/52/fightcard/reg2014

Remaining needs: 1) Sign PK 2) Sign Eller 3) Trade Moen ($1.8m for a 13th forward is not worth it) 4) Trade Budaj (Ticker > Budaj) 5) Obtain a goon Would be nice: 6) Obtain a scoring RW

HH, I agree with you that Moen and Budaj have to go. I'm afraid it won't be easy to shed their salaries. I suggested we trade Moen and a 2016 2nd to Chicago for Versteeg and Danault. This gives Chicago some more cap room, which they desperately need. It also gives us a RW who can play on the 3rd line (assuming PAP and Gally are top-6).

Shayne Corson's son, Dylan, invited to the Habs camp Shayne was one of my favorite players growing up.

What do you think: Moen and the 2nd from Buffalo for Versteeg and Danault Chicago is trying to shed salary and weren't happy with Versteeg. His cap hit is $2.2m, Moen's is $1.85m. Max-DD-Gally Chucky-Pleks-PAP Bourque-Eller-Versteeg Prust-MM-Weise Extra: BournID, goon

I'm happy with MB's moves so far. In my view, he's not done tinkering: Moen and Budaj have to go. Here's how I see our moves, and I think they're all upgrades. Gio -> PAP Gorges (4 year deal) -> Gilbert (2 year deal) (and a 2nd) Briere -> Malhotra
