Hi there and welcome to what may be a regular “reality check” to Montreal Canadien fans. This will basically depend on the fury that will strike their heart next season when Brière/Drury/Any UFA who will sign will have a bad two week period.

Michael Lambert was not given a qualifying offer, and has now become a free agent.
I’ve done a little research to find out just how much Cap room the Habs actually have. As of this very moment (June 26, 2007, 3:22 pm) the Habs have $31.034 million dedicated to the Cap. Thats also with Ryder, Plekanec, Milroy and Gorges not signing yet.
We all now as Habs fans the situation in Montreal. UFA’s are hard to come by for the many reason’s we have all heard before. Until now our minor system has been not very good, so now that is looking promising some of us want to trade it all away for a potential quick fix!! then there are those who think we can make a deal and give away nothing!!!!
Since I began submitting my thoughts on the Habs on this site, i have come to realize just how ignorant Canadiens fans are. We demand too much from our best and when they don’t perform, we demand they get traded. Everyone’s drooling at the prospect of having Marleau or Briere but i guarantee that if one of them does become a Hab, once they go through a slight slump, every single person on this site will demand they get traded and demand Gainey’s head.
Draft is done and the spectacular blockbuster involving Marleau didn’t happen. Some say it’s because the Sharks want to make sure they will get Drury others say it’s simply because Marleau isn’t going anywhere.
Ok, Draft day has come and gone and as everyone now knows, Patrick Kane is a Blackhawk. But, what did Montreal do? Well, for what seems like a long run of “terrible” drafting, the Habs, yet again, took a defencemen in the first round.
With the emergence of Carey Price and the lack of quality goaltending on the free agent market, Mr. Gainey should entertain offers on Huet.
Montreal has tons of solid prospects in their organization and will be a great team in the years to come. This is my first post so feel free to tell me what you think.
This is only my opinion, but, I think there won’t be any major trade involving the Canadiens this year at the entry draft pick for 2 reasons.
