What does Gainey do… Part 2

Latendresse or Perezoghin ???

Canadiens' Cristobal Huet to receive MBNA Roger Crozier Saving Grace Award

Montreal Canadiens goaltender Cristobal Huet will receive the 2005-06 MBNA Roger Crozier Saving Grace Award during an on-ice ceremony prior to the Canadiens preseason game against the Boston Bruins at the Bell Centre tonight

First Boillion and now Cote

I was reading our local news paper today and it reported that JP Cote went down with a knee injury during a scrimmage recently.

Habs rumors mills spin again!

Many sources come with many rumors…

110% tv show said that Habs was looking to get Roberto Luongo but with the performance of Huet, the withdraw all offer.

Markov May Take Off

Andrei Markov is in the last year of his contract and is scheduled to become an UFA at season’s end. This is a tricky situation for Bob Gainey and the Canadiens. What should they do?

What Does Gainey do ???

After hearing Saku Koivu talk at yesterday’s golf tournament, Habs fans should have reason to be worried. As much as the Habs brass show’s confidence that Koivu will be fine, inside they are shaking in their boots. What does Gainey do. Does he go into camp and see if any rookie is ready to make the jump ? Does he see if Kovalev or Higgins can play in the middle this year ? Does he look to make a deal ? Does he put his confidence in Bonk to play on one of the top 2 lines ?

110% Think Daze deserves a shot

After watching 110% last night, I cannot believe that Bob Gainey would not at the very least give Eric Daze a crack at making the Habs roster this year. Michel Bergeron or perhaps it was Enrico Ciccone said that this guy was the fastest player on the ice practicing with other NHL players at a local rink. Daze says his back is 100%,his conditioning around 80 and is ready for training camp.Now,I know this guy is injury prone,but with his size and skill,how can the Habs lose with an incentive laiden contract?.

Ribeiro nearly a Blackhawk last Season?

Matthias Brunet reports Mike Ribeiro was nearly part of a major trade last winter involving the Canadiens and Chicago Blackhawks. The deal supposedly would’ve seen Ribeiro, Jose Theodore and Pierre Dagenais shipped to Chicago in exchange for Nikolai Khabibulin and Adrian Aucoin, but was nullified when Theodore broke his ankle. I think that this would have been a great trade but then again if that had happened Huet probably would never have gotten the chance to become the star he is at the moment so I guess it all worked out, especially since Khabibulin was just as bad as Theo last season it would of been a struggling star goalie for another struggling star goalie, maybe they were hoping the change of scenery would change that. Who knows but even though Aucoin had a sub-par year last season i think he would have been a great addition to give us more blueline depth.

Should the Habs look at Daze ???

I was thinking maybe the Habs should sign him at a base salary of let’s say 500,000 $, and throw in some incentives like games played, goals and so on.

Canadiens not among suitors for Dumont

UPDATE to the Malkin Rumor

Here’s more from Eklund on this crazy rumor… (The only reason I’m posting this is because he was one if not the only guy who had rumored Samsonov signing to Montreal)
