Are The Canadians Talking To Hossa's Agent???

There has been reports that the canadians are talking to hossa’s agent on a deal. The ATLANTA TRASHERS so they say has given permission to gainy to speak to his agent…. Well i think this is a good thing for both sides especially ATLANTA unlike gainy will not let an ufa hossa walk for nothing especially when there not sure even to make the playoffs.

Atlanta is seeking dman and a rw if hossa is traded and a prospect and a 1st rounder very steep but why not do it ryder is a goner anyways, dandenault doesnt want to be in the press box, 1st rounder we have enough depth to skip one 1st rounder and these 2players could help atlanta make the playoffs

People that say that montreal is dealing garbage for greatness pls learn your hockey a player thats having a ruff year for a team with depth thats a 30 goal scorer isnt garbage and dandenault has won stanly so vet wit speed isnt garbage at all he plays Dea AND Off , a 1st rounder and maybe a prospect like d.milroy that won’t get a chance to play in montreal and if montreal is still looking for a fighter they have boulton

let me know what you people think but i dont think there’s another team that can match what the canadians could offer we could offer help for atlanta to make the playoffs now and in the future… try and match an offer like that from montreal with other teams…..A proven 30 goal scorer RW, A dman that is a vet with speed, A 1st rounder and A prospect for hossa and maybe boulton
THEN OFFER HOSSA A 3 to 6 year deal worth 7.7 to 8.5 million per year

    Atlanta is still trying to sign Hossa and they have not given MTL the rights to speak with him.
    Gainey has stated that he is looking for a defensive centremen who can win face-offs and protect a lead.

    I think Hossa would work well with Koivu and Higgins and give the habs 2 strong lines. But it doesn't address the need for a strong face off guy. I think sending Chipchura and Ryder to Edm for Stoll and Torres would be better in the long run. Once Torres is back from injury, the Habs would have a skilled winger with grit and the face off man they need. Edm would have a scoring winger, and a center in the mold of Stoll, but 3 years younger. If the hbs really want a big name, they should try Jokinen. He would give them size, drive, and if Koivu would move to wing, a great line with Higgins. Jokinen is a solid two way player, but would cost the Habs. I like the nucleus they have developed and don't think they should trade away too much for a potential short term gain. Any major players traded off the roster could mess up the chemistry too!

    We don't really need a 3rd line, faceoff winning, defensive center. We have quality young centers up the wazoo. What we need is more fire power up front. A hundred point man with size. I like the idea picking up Torres (adds much needed toughness) strait up for Ryder. We could do without Stoll. We need to forget about this year's playoffs. I'd rather seee the Habs give up a Stanley Cup this year for a hundred point man next year and two or three Stanley Cups in the next five years. We need to use the depth we have to go get "the guy" ASAP. The problem is who and for what. It might be too hard to do this year given the cap and the tightness in the standings. We're well positioned as it is but expendable (I consider Huet expendable right now, many disagree) players with value could be lost. It needs to be the right player at the right time. If we finish high in the standings and do well in the playoffs, it might attract some serious free agents. I'd make the trade for Hossa now and see who wants to come here in the offseason. Preferably a big, strong Canadian born center.

    Koivu on the wing? common.

    i agree that he is looking for a center faceoff man but who said he can't make 2 trades one for hossa and something like a perreault that will cost nothing to get but if your looking at center maybe gainey was talking to waddell for holik big center faceoff player wich i really dont like but hey who knows and stoll is a good player but isnt a defensive center if you could get him why not stoll won't cost alot because he has a huge contract for his play something like ryder

    We don't need a third line center. We are being worn down by other bigger tougher teams and we need size and grit going into the playoffs. At center we have Lapierre, Chipchura, Smolinski and the best 3rd line center in the league in Saku Koivu. We need a first line center born in Canada who can put the puck in the back of the net and his fist in the back of someone's face.

    If the Habs are to pick up a first line center, either Koivu would have to move to the third line, meaning another centre would have to be traded or move to anothet position. Or Kouve could be moved to wing, trading him would have an adverse affact on the team. I don't know of any big strong Cdn born centres that will be UFA's this summer. And I doubt that there are any teams willing to trade one unless they get way too much in return ( Thornton, Lecavalier ) Marleau is not the answer. I do think if Mtl could get Jokinen in a rumoured three way deal with Edm, and still get Hossa without giving up any young roster players( Plekanec, Higgins, Kostitsyns's, or Komisarek ) or any of the top prospects such as McDonough, Valentenko, O'Byrne, then it may work out. If Mtl could send Ryder and Halak to Edm for Stoll and Horcroft, then send Stoll, Horcroft and 2nd round pick for Jokinen.

    Then maybe Grabovski, D'Agostino, Gorges and Emelin for Hossa, if he agrees to a new contract first! This way, there would still be the same nucleus and the top prospects would still be in the fold.
