    I agree, I think Budaj's cap hit needs to come off the books along with Moens. That would leave us with over $5M in cap space, which means we could go after a solid scoring winger either before camp (trade?) or pick someone up at the deadline ala Vanek. ____________________________________ "You will not regret picking me” – PK Subban.

    Fantastic read as usual UCE. And you're bang on about Michael... if his head is in the right place, and he's dedicated in the gym and on the ice, he'll work out just fine. ____________________________________ "You will not regret picking me” – PK Subban.

    That's exactly how I feel about him too... not hating on him, just feel that we'd be better off as a team if he was moved. ____________________________________ "You will not regret picking me” – PK Subban.

    I see that the DD vs Pleks debate is stall raging today... allow me to jump in (I'm a glutton for punishment). Personally, and having watched both play closely for years now, Pleks just has a more well rounded overall game. He can produce offensively (you don't get 70pts by fluke), is consistently a 20-goal guy, plays shut-down against other teams' top lines (no debate there from the HIO crew), kill penalties etc. Basically your solid 2nd line C, a Bergeron-lite. DD is mostly a one trick pony... that trick being offense. I'll give the DD-lovers the benefit of the doubt and concede that he's better at it than Pleks (although many already debate this stat, what with DD getting the best winger(s), offensive zone starts, PP etc). But if you're a one-trick-offensive pony, you better put up huge numbers in that role...cause, you know, that's your main job on a teams first line with its best forwards. Now ask yourselves: does DD produce like a 1st line center in the NHL? I'm not hating on DD, but I also don't see the huge love for this guy. For those who think he's so awesome, think about this: what would DD fetch in a trade? What is his value? Is it the same as what other 1st line centers around the league fetch? The answer is no... I doubt many GM's are lining up to take this guy, and give us a huge return (that's why people keep saying Pleks would fetch more in a trade). So... why is everyone so high on him?! ____________________________________ "You will not regret picking me” – PK Subban.

    Freddy... that's exactly my worry, as I mentioned in my post. Songles... you still have to pay players an appropriate amount. Just because he's the best Hab player in a generation, doesn't mean we should give him 15M or 20M a year, if you understand what I mean. ____________________________________ "You will not regret picking me” – PK Subban.

    Ok, I realize Eklund is a troll and none of his E1million-level rumors ever come to pass... but this Letang rumor, and the fact that PK is still not signed, has got me thinking and to be honest a little bit worried. I think most here assume that PK will get something fair, like 8-8.5M a year as most seem to throw those numbers around. But, what if PK (and more specifically his agent) feel that with the cap going up in the next few years, that PK deserves a lot more. Imagine for example that PK's camp are asking for 8.5 for the next couple of years, but then a jump to 10M for the following six years. Most of us, and probably MB too, would feel this is an outrageous demand, and too much to pay him. So PK sticks to his demand, and MB doesn't want to budge... so they go to arbitration. Knowing all of this, MB would HAVE to trade him if he feels the demand in salary is outrageous... even if the arbitrator gives PK 8.5M for 1 or 2 years, if MB knows PK is looking for 10M a year he would HAVE to trade him... and hence the Letang type rumors. I would absolutely FREAK out if we traded PK.. he is a generational player and I wouldn't trade him for a number of reasons. I'm just hoping that PK's not forcing MB into doing something none of us want to see happen. Worried, indeed. ____________________________________ "You will not regret picking me” – PK Subban.

  • Comment on ‘I feel like it’s my home,’ Habs’ Markov says about Montreal (2014-06-25 18:34:48)
    If you look at his history, Andre has been a (near) elite, puck-moving, all-star calibre defenseman who has been loyal to the Habs many times, and has been the best D on our team for the past decade (except recently with PK rising to the top). I'm glad they signed him... these types of players don't grow on trees, and teams would have thrown more money and term at him on UFA-shopping day. ____________________________________ "You will not regret picking me” – PK Subban.

    Lots of talk about what to do with Chucky, now that he's ready. I have faith that MT (along with the whole coaching and management group) will know exactly when to plug him into the lineup. But the best part, for me at least, is that having a guy with such special talent chomping at the bit to get in, means that it will keep everyone else in the lineup honest...cause they know they have to play well or get pulled out. That just makes the team so much better, cause you know the effort will be there. ____________________________________ "You will not regret picking me” – PK Subban.
