I know its early to start makeing predictions on how the season will play out and the order of finish for the conferences however here is how I see the Western Conference shapeing up for the upcoming season. Of course this is subject to change given the remaining freeagent signings and possible trades.
I have been following the Habs for many years and I can’t remember a time of such change and speculation. As sad as I am to see Koivu, who gave everything, go, I can’t say that I am surprised to see Kovalev gone. With all the skill and talent, came the over questioning and inconsistency. Last season he seemed to be getting caught from behind all too often. Tanguay has had too many injury problems and his shoulder is suspect. Would you pay the type of salary that he was making on a player who may only play half the season. Now it is like paying double the salary!!

I finally was able to get a hold of free-agent winger Alex Tanguay’s agent today for a few minutes on the phone.
Tanguay’s agent, Robert Sauve, said the Panthers are one of five or six teams he’s talking with that Tanguay is considering signing with.
