- Comment on Fans pack Bell Sports Complex to watch final scrimmage at development camp (2014-07-14 20:09:55)
Why the pk bashing today. He isn't get a penny over $8 M. I am hoping for $7.5 times 8....pk knows he'll screw up our cap if he takes too much of it. he'll be a hab for a long long time. rumor is we are a million apart....not sure what that means....my guess is 7 vs 8.....but who knows.... Bourque for Sharp....forget it....won't happen.....since hawks are trying to trade oduya to get space....they'll want one of our three young studs in the deal.....we need to dump salary too....get rid of moen.....I am sure we'll have to give Nathan B and Bourque to land Sharp....obviously ok with bourque going but not sure about giving up a future puck moving top 4 dman also.....WE better get a second rounder if we trade N.B. in this transaction. rumors are going rampad.....I do believe we have a deal in the works for another top 6.....as we need one....not sure which UFA we are targeting now but I suspect a trade is in the works.....I heard Marleau was a possibility but we don't have the cap space....the pk settlement is holding lots of balls in the air for bergey.....an extra million will go a long way in landing a big piece via trade. other rumor is Derek roy signing with the habs.....another smurf....I say no way.

No way PK is getting $8.75 M. I think the habs will win in arbitration as the highest paid dman in the league (or the top 3) are all under $8 M are they not? I hope it doesn't get to arbitration cuz that will mean the end of PK in Montreal down the road. 8 years for $60 M is my guess. Eller is going to be interesting. I hope we sign him for 5 years times $3 M. He may want more but let's get serious - he had a horrible season. solid playoff which is what matters but no way is he worth $4 M like I hear he "wants". saw it off in the middle and all is good....$3.5 M times 5 years. Done. Now we know how much we have next year for the other BIG boys coming up....Gallagher and Galchenyuk et all.....CAH CHING....sign these two LONG term like the Oilers did with Hall and Ebs and Nuge.....it will save us in the long run....and both are our future....although I would trade Gallagher for E. Kane in a second.

Flyers are trying to dump cap space so it would have to be prospects/draft pick and one of our cheaper younger NHL forwards. Gallagher and Pateryn could get it done......probably have to throw in a third round pick as well.....but we would have to say good-bye to Eller or Gallagher or Galchenyuk or Tinordi to get this done as a START. I would definately part with Gallagher to land Simmons.....wouldn't blink or look back..... Let's see what Bergy has up his sleeve - he knows he has to land a top six before camp begins.....

Steven O. Wow - U sure know your stuff. NOT. Habs have done great today. U must be a leafs fan.....cuz your knowledge is very weak.

Timo....U R from Calgary just like me. You must remember Gilbert from his time with the oilers....one GREAT season....then he couldn't play any more with no help......had a horrible year.....he had a great season in FLA....he can move the puck....fairly soft player but certainly not as soft as Weber or Diaz in ANY fashion.....he can skate...and has size.....can kill penalties but to me he will be on our second unit pp. at $2.8 M I would say we over paid by $300 k.....with taxes so high in Montreal....and UFA season....to over pay by that much on a two year contract.....right handed Dman.....NICE. I wanted Robidas....but he is what 37? Gilbert is 31 I think? I like the signing.....I love Gorges - but yup he was over paid by $900 k.....and also shoots left.....we have tinordi and belieau coming thru as well.....FOUR years of Josh takes their spot next year and after. I love the Weaver signing as well....over paid by $250 K....but got the one year deal....heck if booey and murray got $1.5 M on one year deals.....this is the best signing of the day so far for the habs......awaiting Vrbata.

Hey Steven O. Go sign on to the Leafs sites....we don't need you as a fan. You are way too negative and not a fan....C ya. No knowledge what so ever about the game or signings based on your comments........just shooting your mouth off..... Please sign off NOW and take your useless hockey knowledge and cap mgmt. else where. thanks so much....take care.

Glad for Gorges.....feel bad he is going to a rebuilding team but he'll be able to be a leader there....too bad we have to play him 5 times per season....it will be tough for him. Gilbert is a solid Dman....31 years old.....he will replace WEAVER not Gorges.....Bergey knew he wasn't getting Boyle a half hour in (Rangers...sheesh).....he shoots right.....haven't heard term or dollars yet - hopefully nothing more than $2.5 M. I wanted Robidas....Gilbert can skate people....

Great signing.....yup upgrade from White AND leadership. Leftie centre though vs white as a rightie.....not much more of a goal scorer but one of the best faceoff guys in the league.....WAS at least - still solid....big who can skate above average...I love it....BUT we better not be done today. oilers just did a stupid signing with pouliot....he is a flake who takes stupid penalties....great signing on fayne though....wish the habs would have signed him...sheesh....
- Comment on Gorges stunned by Habs’ desire to trade him, now waiting for next move (2014-07-01 00:20:10)
People it isn't Kadri that was offered. Besides - doesn't matter....not going to happen. I heard it was Gardiner.....but again don't care cuz it doesn't make sense and really who cares.....deal isn't happening. move forward people......two Cdn teams I assume are Vancouver and Winnipeg that he added....he is a Western boy.....can't see it being an Alberta team.....but then again it may be the oilers cuz he knows they are up and coming.

Can we please stop bashing our Assistant captain who has bled red white and blue for us since he got here? Ok his cap hit is large but is that HIS fault. He gave it his all every night. His wife is about to give birth in the next week and he just found out this stuff today as well (ok maybe yesterday). Josh was our number 3 Dman this past season. Like it or not. Is he over paid. YES. But let's not BASH him. Let's support our players instead of cutting them up. This is a free country so say what you want but seriously guys / gals let's show some class for our players. Especially Josh who tried and did his best with his talent every night......let me see you block shots coming that hard all season long and sacrifice yourself for the CH like he did....and remember he got one in the head just last year that could have ended his career....sheesh guys.
