Gagne an Habs ?

Source : Mix 99.7 FM Radio Station

The Montreal submit a 5 years / 25 Millions dollars offer to Simon Gagne.

The Habs will have to give in compensation to the Philadelphia Flyers : Two First Round draft choice, One Second Round Draft Choice and One Third Round Draft Choice.

Over 5 millions per years, it cost 4 FIRST Rounders…

Take it easy on this one…

My Two Cents : Gainey got nothing to lose with that… The Habs draft so bad… But if it’s the case, the war will start in the NHL… ouf… touching RFA…

But Luongo was offer 8M from an other team so… everything could happen.

    Didnt we Just hear about how the Habs had “made an offer to Elias” or about how the Habs “had made an offer to Tampa for St.Louis”????

    and what happened there???

    MY GOD, I HOPE THIS IS TRUE!!! IT WOULD BE LIKE TEN CHRISTMAS’ TO ME AND IM SURE MANY OF MY HAB BRETHEREN! PLEASE HAPPEN!!!

    Gagne is, in my esteem, worth a price like that…although that is DAMN steep. Do I believe it? Not really…Gagne just said he wanted to stay long term with the Flyers, avoided Arbitration to do so…and Gainey would only really make an offer like that if he thought there was a decent chance that it’d work.

    Nice…it’d be overpay, but still nice. Reality? Hopefully, but most likely not.

  9. Les-Habitants says:

    That’d be awesome, but…

    OFFER DRAFT CHOICE(S)

    $400,000 OR BELOW NONE

    OVER $400,000 TO AND INCLUDING $550,000 THIRD ROUND

    OVER $550,000 TO AND INCLUDING $650,000 SECOND ROUND

    OVER $650,000 TO AND INCLUDING $800,000 FIRST ROUND

    OVER $800,000 TO AND INCLUDING $1.0 MILLION FIRST AND THIRD ROUND

    OVER $1.0 MILLION TO AND INCLUDING $1.2 MILLION FIRST AND SECOND ROUND

    OVER $1.2 MILLION TO AND INCLUDING $1.4 MILLION TWO FIRST ROUNDS

    OVER $1.7 MILLION THREE FIRST ROUNDS

    EACH ADDITIONAL MILLION ADDITIONAL FIRST ROUND, UP TO MAXIMUM OF FIVE FIRST ROUND

    PICKS

    This is the info I’ve been able to find concerning RFAs…and all I’ve read in the new CBA is that “draft pick compensation will remain the same as in the expired CBA.” I’m not sure if that is just for unsigned first round draft picks, or what, but I haven’t been able to find anywhere a site or URL with the actual draft pick compensation for an RFA…like where is this two 1st round + 2 other draft picks coming from?

    You are wrong… this is the draft compensation scale as found at page 38 of the new CBA:

    Up to $660,000 – No compensation

    $660,000 to $1 million – One 3rd round draft pick

    $1 to $2 million – One second round pick

    $2 to $3 million – One 1st and one 3rd round pick

    $3 to $4 million – One 1st, one 2nd and one 3rd round pick

    $4 to $5 million – Two 1sts, one 2nd and one 3rd round pick

    Over $5 million – Four 1st round picks

    Habs do draft horribly. And NO I’M NOT A LEAFS FANS.

  13. Les-Habitants says:

    Nice, cool thanks. I kept on trying to find it, but I guess I always came across the old CBA

  14. TheWho says:

    Who ever said that the habs scouting suck is a complete ignorant. The habs scouting has been great since 2001 and if they were so bad, why are the habs prospect considered to be #5 in the league?

  15. habsoverserver says:

    Who gave Gainey his start as a coach with the Stars? With whom did Gainey go to the finals against Pittsburgh? Who is one of Gainey’s closest friends in hockey?

    Why would Gainey try to screw his buddy Bobby Clarke?

    This rumor is so stupid, so impossible as to be laughable.

  16. habsoverserver says:

    i can promise you gainey won’t poach from clarke. they are buddies.

  17. 100_years_of_glory09 says:

    It does not matter if there friends,its business.Anywyas, Simon Gagne stated that he was staying with philly.

  18. hab_o_holic says:

    I wouldnt say they draft ‘bad’. BUT in Gagne’s case…Habs took Eric Chouinard (a formers major Junior linemate of Gagne) before Gagne got drafted. At draft day 1998, it didnt seem like a bad draft, but over the years Chouinard has never lived up to what he should have become. aaaaaaaanyway, Gagne to Montreal…I wonder if he can put in 40 goals on a line with Koivu and Kovalev. Would definately be entertaining to watch but for 4 first rounders, I’d cancel off the negotiations (if there is any).

  19. N25philly says:

    Good, do you think the Flyers can spend the money they offered Gagne to someone who is going to play like he gives a sh1t?

  20. blarneylad says:

    habs have been drafting fine buddy, sorry for the assumption

  21. Komisarek says:

    Not saying they should, but if would really want to take a shoot a him, without paying the maximum price….You offer him a 4-5 years contract for $4,999,999.00/Yr plus incentives for about another million a year…..You would force Philly to either make a trade to free up cap space to keep him or accept the package ($4 to $5 million – Two 1sts, one 2nd and one 3rd round pick ).

    The question is:

    Is Gainey willing to sacrifice that much for Gagne ?

    Would Gagne accept the Habs offer, therefor forcing Philly to react?

    Would Gainey break the unwritten rule of not touching a RFA ? Someone already did it this year by offering a contract to Luongo (rejected by Luongo)

  22. Les-Habitants says:

    An article came out this week where Gagne was asked about this rumour, and said that he was hoping to remain with Philly and even if Montreal made an offer, he’d hope Philly would match it. He wants to stay.

    The article goes on to say that apparently Gainey and Clark are friends, plus offer sheets are pretty taboo in the GM circle, so this most likely won’t happen.

    You can get the link for Spector’s page (that’s where I think I saw it)

  23. FlyersfanKyle says:

    just because the Habs make an offer dosnt mean Gagne has to take it they could offer 10million but he dosnt Have to take it this isnt 2k6 where they take the best offer given the habs could offer 5mil they flyers could offer 4 and Gagne could the 4 not saying he would be he could
