Bulis Leaving the Habs?

Forward Jan Bulis had a career-high 20 goals last season but the Montreal Canadiens won’t bring back the 28-year-old Czech Olympian. His agent Jiri Crha said Friday that a deal was close at hand with another team.

“There are a few teams that want to sign him,” said Crha. “I think something will happen very soon.”

    I see Bulis as a lesser version of Martin Rucinsky. Apparently, Rucinsky wants 2 years and the Rangers want him for just one more year.

    If those talks are done, then i’d like to see the Rangers get this guy. He’s pretty decent, not that good. Has his flaws, but does the job for the most part as he’d fit in very well with the philosophy of the Rangers right now.

    Not a bad player to get for any team. Montreal is going to need a LW though, soon.

    i just read the possibilty of the rangers aqcuiring havlat, i’d like to see him playing as a left winger.

    but i have a feeling the rangers are done with free agency, theyve gotta keep the roster spots open, to keep the competition high, and the possibilty of new guys coming up at high chances

    Guess hes going to the czech republic ranegrs then

    It’s been known for a while that Bulis wanted to try his luck elsewhere and that the Canadiens were not planning on keeping him.

    Gainey had Bulis as a healthy scratch for long stretches in the season, despite career high in goals (20) and also 20 assists.

    Bulis was disappointed with the ice time he got, and I can see him signing in NY, might be a good fit for both.

    I don’t think this is a surprise to anybody…eith so many Habs fans that post here, are any of you surprised by this? I thought it was a foregone conclusion that Gainey was done with Jan Bulis.

    I meant *with

    heh, sather is trying to put an end to it

    This is old news, this decision was made litterally after game 6 of the series vs Carolina. Bulis shouldn’t have any sort of trouble finding a nhl team willing to sign him. He’s still young and holds some untapped offensive potential. He’s also one of the best skaters in the nhl with great balance. The only problem with Bulis is that he wasnt very good at finishing compared to how much he created. He also is known to play like a girl. However at 1.2-1.5 million/year he would be a solid pickup for anyteam, especially teams that lack players more suited for the new nhl, teams like philly, toronto, Vancouver..

  12. AfroCon says:

    Whatever team picks him up, they should play him at center and give him wingers that’ll go in corners because he won’t.

    If he play in such an environment, he could be pretty effective.

  13. garyroberts07 says:

    Apparently he’s leaving because he wants to be on a playoff team next year.

  14. Lint07 says:

    so cross Toronto off the list then…

  15. Lint07 says:

    it’s a given Bulis is a goner.

    before the season ended last year, both Bulis and the Habs made it clear he wouldn’t be back with the team.

    He’ll probably sign in the Western Conference.

  16. garyroberts07 says:

    Yeah, we don’t want crap players. Oh sry for dissing your top winger.

  17. LeafsLeafsLeafs says:

    I bet Bulis back to Washington to play with Ovechkin, can you say career year for Bulis?

    70-90 points easy.

  18. Hanzo says:

    Because he would be the top winger on the Leafs means that he was on the Habs. And i’m not even kidding.

  19. habsoverserver says:

    Fans want to dump three of Montreal’s top eight offensive players but Montreal hasn’t been able to land anyone to replace them.

    Given their chronic anemic goal production, Montreal doesn’t have the luxury of going it without their troika of streaky soft scorers – Bulis, Ribiero, and Zednik.
