- Comment on Habs’ Subban expects arbitrator to decide on his contract (2014-08-01 15:41:57)
So there is a very slim chance that they could get a deal done, but it would have to be before the Arbitrator comes to a decision on salary. The offer made on PK's behalf for one year of RFA value at $8.5 million makes me think that he would want a ton more for his UFA years. Looking at the Eller contract it seems that MB negotiated fairly and that the final hit was higher than what Eller had asked for as a one year deal, which makes sense. Everyone is painting MB as the "bad" guy here, but I am not sure that this is the case. We will possibly know once the dust has settled. Once PK is signed for this year, is there any ruling in the CBA that prohibits the player that has gone through arbitration from being traded?

If he consistently plays like he did during the playoffs it will help with our 5 on 5 play.

Yes. I liked his speed and forecheck when playing with Pleks. I hope he continues to surprise and comes to camp ready to make the move off the 4th line. He has too much talent to be stuck there.

Any one else try this quiz and after answering the first two questions correctly get told that you've already taken the test? Weird.

Good thoughts on Max. He also has dedication to come back from injuries. And signed for a very fair term/$ hit.

Maybe they think that Crisp is ready to take a spot on the 4th line. A bit more size and hockey sense. White took a lot of bad lazy penalties. Not disappointed in this move.

I don't think Emelin will be traded. MB said that Markov and Emelin would be good mentors for our first round pick Sherbak. When Emelin plays on the left side he is much better.

Thanks. Great read. Not much out there to replace Markov with so he will probably get signed.

My 2 cents on Markov... He would be a great mentor to the young D assuming two things. First that he communicates better with team mates than he does with the media. Some guys are great players but lousy coaches see Gretzky as an example. Secondly, that they bring up and play the young D rather than re-hashing old vets. We have enough old vets. Play the youth and they will get better. Beaulieu would have looked better with a few more games played during the regular season. Pre Olympic break I thought he was on a roll, and then they bring up Tinordi after. I know a lot goes on that we as fans don't get to hear, but it did seem odd. If Markov isn't a good mentor or if they don't think the young D are ready to play, let Markov walk. Save the cash for a forward to play with DD and Patches.
