Yep. Pleks should be C. Unless we trade him. Then, no idea.

"and trade Subban for a defensive defenseman and a scorer". For the record, I am a HUGE SUbban fan for the following reason. I believe that Subban is WAY bigger than just his talent on the ice, which is quite formidable I might add, and therefore do not think I would trade him 1-1 with anyone in the NHL, including Crosby. However, to be fair, please enlighten us. With whom would you be happy in return?

Can someone watch the video of PK after the hearing and let me know if he has learned anything about the process? I think he mentions that this is a process he respects. Also, this process is a process that has been processed...

"Subban is the greatest player this franchise has ever seen" You are either insane or in love.

"our number one player is Carey Price (no one should dispute that)" Disputed. PK is practically irreplaceable. Price is replaceale. Simple exercise: Think about who you would be ok with trading PK for 1 for 1. Example: Would you trade PK for Crosby? Maybe - but you had to think about it. Would you trade Price for Crosby? Ummm...YES! No brainer.
- Comment on Subban, Habs submit salary figures; Lacroix new assistant coach (2014-07-31 10:56:34)
First three years 5.75 million. This is to appease the idea that Markov is his equal. Years 4 through 8, nine million per year. Total cap hit 7.81 million

You are all missing the big picture. Signing Markov will allow Bergevin to tell Gionta that we can't afford to sign him!!!

The expression 'Hindsight is 20/20' has never been more appropriate. Reading some of your posts that he was a huge bust and mistake is just so irritating. He was ranked very high by all scouting agencies, and there have been links here that confirm this. This happens all the time to every team. Just go to hockeydb.com and pick a draft from ANY SEASON, and you will see teams that are kicking themselves with a late first rounder they should have picked. Go to 2007's draft and look at some of the players picked before Pacioretty, and even more so before Subban on that same year! Did the Habs draft suck that year too? Just give me a break already.
