Category Archives: Montreal Canadiens
We’ve a lot of youth on this team. What do we need to become a contender for next year?
What exactly are Gainey’s objectives? Is he trying to setup the Habs for a playoff run this season (whether it be successful or not)? Is he willing to set up the team for the next 5 years if it means sacrificing the rest of the season?
The Montreal Canadiens, in desperate situation, are negotiating with western teams, like San Jose Sharks and Anheim Ducks, to sell Sheldon Souray to them for prospects, draft picks, and 1 centremen, according to http://spectorshockey.tripod.com/spectors_trade_rumours.html.
Forget it. Mike Cammalleri coming to Montreal could make sense. Let me tell you why it doesn’t.
The Canadiens are without Kovalev due to an elbow injury he has been feeling since Christmas, according to RDS.ca. In addition Huet may be out with a pulled hammy, he will find out this afternoon.
First off I am a huge Montreal fan and I will stick with my team through the good and the bad. But something has to be done, take last nights game for instance Koivu(or captain hook) has been taking far too many penalties lately, not blaming everything on him the team took 9 penalties to New Jersey’s 3. It’s nice to see them playing hard but they have to use their heads and avoid the pointless penalties.
Fan of the Montreal Canadiens are probably starting to panic and they have good reason to be! From resent interviews from the press….many of the canadiens players are stating as well as coaches that the team does not need any change and they have a crew fit for a come back…
Canada.com reports that the Canadiens are in real trouble. According to their latest article the Habs have some players such Craig Rivet that may be on the trade block. It is speculated that the Canadiens have several players that could be moved for players such as Guerin however Gainey is reluctant to move young prospects for rentals.
It’s done, it’s over, cooked, fini. I thought maybe after the 30 minute meeting Saturday after the game, and the guys airing their dirty laundry, they would come out flying. Also the supposed cancer of the team Kovalev wasn’t playing some of the players would have steeped up…..no.
“I am also hearing more Zherdev to Montreal Rumors, and I am about to go into a meeting with a montreal source in the next few minutes to discuss a rumor I am chasing that the Habs may be in the verge of something bigger. I will report back.”
In light of the Montreal Canadiens complete collapse, Bob Gainey should be a seller and not a buyer, come trade deadline day. Let’s face it. The Habs are not Stanley Cup contenders. They are not conference finalist material. They are, if they make the playoffs at all, the same as last year. Maybe win a round and if all the stars are aligned, maybe win 2 rounds but thhhaaattt’s all, folks!! With 6 impending UFA’s (Souray, Markov, Rivet, Bonk, Johnson, Abeischer) and several other players the team would likely move (Perezhogin, Ryder, Samsonov) if the right deal was on the table, Gainey is holding the cards that could set up the Canadiens organization for the next 10 years.
Not a chance! Local Edmonton newspaper states Kevin Lowe says he wants nothing to do with Sergei Samsonov. Maybe the Habs should try and talk with the Blue Jackets if they intend on keeping Samsonov and Kovalev. Certainly something needs to be done here. Go Habs Go!
According to hockeybuzz.com Montreal is the leader in the Doan sweepstakes. Calgary is also pushing for Doan but Montreal has much more to offer. Hopefully Gainey gets off his ass and doesnt let this one slip away.
