Brad Richards to be Habs

I just heard on Les amateurs de sports by Michel Bergeron (ex-rangers and nordiques head-coach)and Michel Villeneuve that Canadians and the Lightning has been talking trade. But none yet. For Tampa Bay : Michael Ryder, Jaroslav Halak and S. Kostystin (Andrei’s little brother at Hamilton). For Montreal: Brad Richards and AndrĂ© Roy.

Halak and the supposed Montreal/SanJose talks.

Rumors have it that Jaroslav Halak has threatened to leave Hamilton and play in Russia if Montreal does not trade him. I can see Halak fitting in on the San Jose roster just fine, but what would we get in return?

Two Words: SCRATCH LATENDRESSE

The Habs have started off pretty well and are playing better than anyone expected. Yet still, there is always room for improvement and they have a few problems to fix.

Surprising star – balanced power play

The Habs are not at the bottom of the conference like most professional analysts predicted. They are doing quite well in fact. Mainly because of the Power Play.

MTL needs a big man who can score

This is hard to say but I think the Leafs may have something the Habs want…

Halak demands trade?

Yvon Pedneault confirmed before the game between the Montreal Canadiens and the Philadelphia Flyers that Jaroslav Halak asked to be traded. He also mentioned that if Halak is not trade he might go to the Russian Super League and earn approximatively 1 millions to end the year in Russia.

The Huet 'Conundrum'

What to do with Cristobal Huet? Many people say trade him away at the deadline, some say let him go at the end of the season in case we do make a playoff run, some (although few) say get Price starting right NOW.

While all of these people have valid points, I believe that trading Huet will be a gamble no mater what.

Possibility of Modano to Montreal

Before everyone jumps all over me..listen to what I have to say…According to RDS a couple of days ago..Montreal may be looking at Modano to fill the first line center position we have available. He would be a great fit because we need a first line center.

Canadiens Review, 6 Games In

Early on Montreal could perhaps be called a pleasant surprise. They have looked much better than most people expected, myself included. Here is my analysis of the Habs six game into the season…

Atlanta perfect trade partner

If Bob wants Price in the big show for good he’s got to give him the #1 job and bring up Halak for back up. With Lethenon out for Atlanta this is the perfect time to move Huet who has really helped out his value with the way he’s been playing. But I say if we can add more offense then lets go with Price and Halak.

This Years Habs

First post so please don’t destroy me if you don’t agree.

So far the Habs have a 2-2-2 record and that could be worse looking at the teams they have played so far not to mention only 2 home games.
