After missing out on the playoffs this year its time for Gainey to focus on next year and not just the futur every time.
First of all get rid of Samsonov and Kovalev(maybe even Huet) and clear up alot of space. Next, let Niinima walk.
Than go after names like Guerin, Zubrus, Briere/Drury, Chris Phillips
and/or Kimo Timmonen.
This is what the habs roster could and should look like in 07-08:
A. Kositsyn- Bonk- Latendresse Johnson- Begin- Streit*Perezhogin-Lapierre
(m) Grabovski, Chipchura
