MY plan for Les Canadiens, Trade: Plekanec, Gorges, Moen, White to Winnipeg for Byfuglien, 2nd round pick in 2013 Sign: Boyd Gordon (right handed centre, good in the faceoff circle); Anthony Stewart (RW); Brendan Morrow (LW). 2013-14 Line-up Pacioretty/Eller/Gionta Morrow/Galchenyuk/Gallagher Bourque/Desharnais/Prust Leblanc/Gordon/Stewart Markov/Emelin Tinordi/Subban Diaz/Byfuglien Drewiske/Boullion Price Budaj Trade Deadline 2014 - deal Markov, and Gionta.
- Comment on Prust will definitely play against Rangers (2013-03-29 20:01:30)
Is Kovalev an option?

There is great debate over who the new GM (whomever it will be) should select with the first pick. No real clear cut choice after Yakupov. What about trading that selection to Scott Howsen in Columbus? TO COLUMBUS: 2012 1st round selection Lars Eller Tomas Kaberle Rene Bourque or Danny Kristo TO MONTREAL: Rick Nash Marc Methot With a few additional moves/signings/buyouts, our line-up would look like this: Nash - Plekanec - Gionta Pacioretty - Desharnais - Cole Leblanc - Stoll - Parenteau Staubitz - Geoffrion - White Gorges - Subban Markov - Emelin Methot - St. Denis Diaz - Weber Price Budaj

Eller looked great on a few rushes and looks solid in the faceoff circle! Keep Eller as your third line centre. Package up Plekanec in the off-season for Kopitar! Kopitar, Desharnais, Eller, Geoffrion down the middle. Then sign Weber from Nashville, and voila, Stanley Cup!

Hemsky is a UFA at the end of the season he can be dumped. Eager gives the team some much needed toughness. I like Cammallerri, but he really seems frustrated right now. Do the Habs keep him at the risk of trading him for nothing? I believe either Cammallerri or Plekanec will be moved. Plekanec to Colorado for Statsny?

What do you think? Cammallerri and Moen to Edmonton for Hemsky and Eager?

Some wise predictions G-Man! I agree with some of the players being moved, but a combination of picks and players in return is what we're looking at in the salary cap world. The organization will also need to ice a team. The first order of business is firing Gauthier and the coaching staff. The new GM? Perhaps, this Brisebois character deserves a shot. Coaching? Start with Carbo and Larry Robinson. Players I would keep? Price, Pacioretty, Plekanec, Emelin, Leblanc, Diaz, Subban, Eller, Desharnais, Gorges, Markov, and Cole. The organization has some assets to move. Most believe that these contracts can't be moved, but teams get crazy around the deadline. Gomez, Gionta, Cammalleri, Moen, Gill, and Kostitsyn should provide some positive return from teams looking to make some noise in the playoffs. Kaberle and Campoli could also be attractive to teams needing some depth. Now is the time to make these moves! Forget the playoffs! If these moves put the organization in a lottery pick position, even better! Take a step back to move three steps forward!

CALL THE DUCKS! WE NEED ONE OR BOTH OF THESE GUYS: PATRICK MAROON or J.F. JACQUES! We can’t have P.K. fighting and out of the game. Subban for Marchand is not an even trade off! Both Maroon and Jacques can play, and they will keep goons like Thornton and Lucic honest! Marchand is tougher because he has those guys are around! I just hate watching goon teams like Boston, Toronto, and Philly try to bully our best. To the credit of our players they hang tough, but we need some muscle!

WE NEED ONE OR BOTH OF THESE GUYS: PATRICK MAROON or J.F. JACQUES! We can't have P.K. fighting and out of the game for long stretches. Both guys can play and keep goons like Thornton in line! We need a deterent NOW!
