    but he's also the guy that drafted Carey Price, PK Subban, Ryan McDonagh, Max Pacioretty & Jaro Halak. with your logic, all scouting directors should be replaced every few years ------------------- "Talent is a gift from God, but you only succeed with hard work.

    just throwing this out there... but why not bring back AK46? He's played with Pleks, & from what i remember reading last year he was a glue guy that was "willing to take a discount to stay in montreal". ------------------- "Talent is a gift from God, but you only succeed with hard work.

    Firstly, he's the habs property until he is traded or bought out - so no other team can "call him up". he would have to pass through waivers to make it to the AHL where any team could take him at his full salary (5.5 mil i believe) & cap hit (7.3) this may be an option for teams trying to get to the floor. If we were to call him up after a demotion, he needs to clear re-entry waivers from the AHL. any team that took him through re-entry would only pay half his cap hit (and salary), and the habs would be on the hook for the other half of the cap hit & salary. ------------------- "Talent is a gift from God, but you only succeed with hard work.

    if we buy him out during this period, a partial cap hit stays on the books for the next 4 years. speculation is that there will be a amnastey buy out (like the NBA had) in the new CBA where it won't count against the cap... so it will be better to buy him out during that period. ------------------- "Talent is a gift from God, but you only succeed with hard work.

    1493! gotta get to 1500! on therrien - everyone thought LA was crazy for bringing in Darryl Sutter, and look where it has gotten them. Lets only hope the same can be done with this team! ------------------- "Talent is a gift from God, but you only succeed with hard work. Yvan was proof of that." - Jean Beliveau
