    Stan Bowman and Pierre Gauthier have a lot riding on their chosen goalies this season. Both opted to ship out the popular kids. Price is like the kid who's wicked smart but hangs with all the cool kids and doesn't apply himself. Turco is like the ex-football star who still hangs around the school because he has no future and wants to hold on to the past. "Back to school...back to school...to show my GM I'm not a fool..."

    S Club 7? are you serious? I mean, you could laugh off the Lady Gaga but S Club 7 is digging deep in the memory box for Louis.

    You're JM...what is your 2010-11 lineup?

    Cammalleri - Plekanec - Kostitsyn

    Pouliot - Gomez - Gionta

    Moen - Eller - Lapierre

    Pyatt - Boyd - Darche

     

    Markov - Subban

    Spacek - Hamrlik

    Gorges - Gill

     

    Price - Auld

     

    Others: Pacioretty....I'd love to see him make the jump back into the lineup this year. If he were to get time he'd probably bump lapierre down to the 4th line and Darche to the bench. Guys like Trotter, Maxwell, Palushaj could all see some time as well while Darche will be on the bench ready and willing at any moment. O'Byrne, Weber, and sometimes Carle will see some 7th D action.

    Boone,

    No doubt looking back on it that Perron is better but do you think Max Pac can turn into the PWF he was touted to be? If he can add 15-20 lbs on his 198lb frame he might be able to compete harder. I felt he got tossed around last season too often and needed to work on his balance.

    Based on everything the scouts say, this kid has top leadership qualities. So, as I said "if all goes as planned" he could one day be captain. As Mark C said, maybe we'll just leave it at "great future leader" for now.

    Cheers,

    Not a chance in hell that the Habs trade Tinordi. This is their future captain (if all goes as planned) while Bieksa is a 3rd/4th D in the league. That being said, I like Bieksa and if we were giving up Hamrlik, Spacek, or Kostitsyn it would make sense. Otherwise, it's a load of crap that people have speculated as usual.

    Markov - Subban

    Spacek - Hamrlik

    Gorges - Gill

    O'Byrne

    Where would Bieksa even fit his $3.75 million salary?

    Our bigger need is to get a big RW to play with Plekanec/Cammalleri or a big LW to play with Gomez/Gionta. Pouliot has said he's trying to put some lbs on his lanky frame but that line needs a Ryan Malone type of guy. Would TBay do this? Malone for Hamrlik + 3rd + Maxwell? They're a bit lit on D and C after the top two lines and Malone's spot could now be replaced by Gagne. Just a thought.

    It was rumoured to be a top prospect so AK would be out of the running. I'd say Max Pacioretty because his development has taken a bit of a hit in the last year. Personally, I think once he fills out his frame he'll be able to compete more on a nightly basis but I could see him going the other way. Another name could be Carle or Weber. With Subban cracking the NHL this year, the Habs have a one too many right handed OFD in the system which they could move without breaking a sweat.
