I heard on french TV show 110%(which hasn’t much credibility,but what the heck…),last night,that Flyers’ center Jeff Carter is available and Flyers are shopping him around.If someone hears anything about that rumor,please let me know.Personally,if Carter is available indeed,I hope Bob Gainey will do whatever it takes to acquire him.
The Larry Robinson jersey retirement night has come and gone and as Bob Gainey’s approaches in February, one must wonder who’s the next former Montreal Canadien to get their jersey number retired and hang the Bell Center rafters.
First of all, I have been saying all along that now is not the time for major changes in Montreal, it is time for some minor tweaks though. The maojor changes I would make now is to sign some key players before the July 1st deadline in 08, and start working on some UFA’s for 09.
I have been coming to this site on a daily basis for the last 6 months or so and I finally decided to post an article. this is my first one so please be easy on me.
After about 20% of the season played already, the Habs have been playing some pretty amazing hockey for a team that many were predicting them to finish 13th in the East and I started to wonder, are the teams taking them seriously or should they? Lets look at a few stats.
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 André Roy.
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?
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.
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.
This is hard to say but I think the Leafs may have something the Habs want…
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.
