- Comment on Markov as next Habs captain? (2014-08-18 13:06:10)
Go with some natural historic chemistry. Pleks with Sekac - Czeching line Pacioretty with Desharnais Bourque with Eller Guys that can change with chemistry- I try Galchenyuk with DD and Max, time for him to be on the big line. Gallagher with Pleks and Sekac - he could work on any line. Parenteau with Bourque and Eller. This kind of line with size and physicality worked well in the playoffs. Anyone slips I throw in Bournival in their place. In a pinch Prust and Weise have moved up.

Did you really type that? Do you really believe that? White got a marginal two way deal. Vanek got big boy money. Vanek has 277 career nhl goals, Ryan White has 5 In the palyoffs Vanek has 20, white has 1 Vanek had 4 pts in 6 games against the Rangers. We wanted more, but he was part of some scoring. Try to be less silly. It'll be good for your heart.

That's a neat visual of crease clearing for sure. A lot less deflections and messy goals for sure. The goals Carey is giving up are right in his face. Thanks very cool!

We've gotten a lot bigger this year. Only one D-man under 6 ft (weaver) Tokarski is small for a goalie, but he's the back up and a goalie 4 forwards under and Pleks and Bournival are listed at 5'11 gallagher genrously listed at 5'9 and Davey all of 5'1 So can we officially put to bed the smurf business? I always hated that monicker.

White was eligible to be let go of. Moen is not. There wasn't really a choice, unless you can trade him. Kind of a valuable spare part though, disregarding his pay is too high.

I can't watch every Canadians game here in America.

That will probably be enough to sign our RFA's and fill out our roster. Doesn't leave much of anything to add a player.

They like the cube, and he's part of the system. He's an MT guy. He would accept sitting in the press box as well like a good solider. The room matters too.

Looking at next summer there will be interesting cap issues arising. We are pretty locked into this team for two years. Next year 4 million comes off the books in Budaj, Malhotra, and Weaver. All three will need to be replaced if they aren't re-signed as well. So if there is any savings it would need to be by getting three players for these roles that add up to less than 4 million. Tinordi, Galchenyuk, Gallagher, Bournival, Beaulieu are all RFA's. They currently make a shade over 4 million. Gallagher will certainly command a good raise, probably Galchenyuk as well. We have about 2.5 million in cap space, and MB is one to sign another veteran d-man. So 10.5 million + cap rise to sign (or call up) 1 goalie 2 d-men 1 centre 5 RFA's It's certainly tight. 2016 - 20.5 million comes off the books. This should be our next big change.

There's a tipping point. I became a Met fan when Carter was traded for the time he was there. There is a tipping point. I am not a lemming.
