Montreal need two make 2 moves… Zus Prospal

After Saturday’s game in ottawa, it’s clear that we don’t have a shut down line, and secondary scoring.

Montreal needs to make a couple of deals that won’t hurt there current roster and there future.

If I were Gainey I’d look at aquiring 6’5” Michal Handzus from L.A. Handzus has a 3 years “12 millions” remaining on his contrat, however he is a great 2 way centerman. I remember his ”Zussss” days as a Flyer.

Instead of a high priced sniper, here are two trades the Habs need to make.

Go after a big tough D-man who can log lots of minutes and play with Hamrlik on the second pairing. Trade Ryder, O’Byrne, Chipchura and Kostopolous to Phoenix for N. Boynton and F. Sjostrom. Then Trade for one of the best face-off men in the league M. Sillinger. Trade Begin, Dandenault, Gorges and the rights to Perezhogin to NYI for Sillinger, T. Hunter and R. Martinek.

Habs, a look ahead, what are your thoughts?

After storming throughout the season so far and a 4th spot in the East seemed to be reserved, the habs find themselves in a little trouble. A terrible game against the Leafs and an embarrassment against the Sens has all of us wondering, what will happen?

Don't Panick Hab Fans, But…

After watching the Montreal-Ottawa game I had a song in my head, “Reunited & it feels so good…”. Watching Heatley, Spezza and Alfredson thump the Canadiens showed what Montreal’s weaknesses are.

What can they do about it?

What we really need!

Trades:

Ryder, Halak, 3rd for Bertuzzi and 2nd

Bouillon and 3rd for Boogaard

Trade or stay still??

Here is a simple question about the Habs??

Since the team is clearly ahead of the development plan Gainey and carbo had in mind, what direction the team must take??

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.

Gainey is willing to pay big.

Gainey is not willing to part with any first round pick and/or future prospects without having an insurance plan.

Atlanta has made it clear that they are interested in some of Montreals young guns. Any hab fan thinking it’s a Ryder /Hossa deal, your dreaming.

Atlanta needs are at center, and on defence.

The fact that Gainey is trying to extend Hossa’s contract and offering him around the same amount offered to Briere this summer cleary states that Gainey is will to give up something big.
“Chipchura, Yamelin, and a firstround pick for Hossa is what I hearing.

Who's to blame for Ryders misfortunes ?!

So we all know that Micheal Ryder is out of town for sure by Feb 26th. He’s had a less than stellar year with a mere 8 goals and 18 points. What happened to the guy who scored 25, 30 and another 30 goals the past 3 years ?

It’s easy to blame the guy for his lack lustre year but lets keep in mind all the factors bearing in his downward spiral.

More canadiens Rumors

As everyone Knows Ryder has been rumored o be out of Montreal for a long time now. On Sunday, he showed up for the game, and was simply told not to bother dressing, packed his bags, and went up to the dressing room. He needs a change of scenery like Mike Ribiero. He too can be a top line forward in this league but not in Montreal. This is the biggest trade rumor right now in Montreal:
