According to a Montreal radio station called the Team 990 and also reported by rumoursnhl.blogspot.com the San Jose Sharks and Montreal Canadiens may complete a deal soon. Here’s the proposed trade
The Habs roster, assuming that noone does better or worse this season, is upgraded 37 points. Now, assuming that people are going to improve over last season, due to chemistry and maturity, Montreal will be a major contender for the cup this year. Just imagine how many games those 37 points could have swayed in the Habs favour last season.
According to a the Team990 radio station in Montreal, the Habs apparently offered Alexander Perezhogin, Andrei Markov and a 1st round pick to San Jose for center Patrick Marleau.
Ok….this is only my second post, and for my first I forgot to mention some of my thoughts and there were a few comments left that encompassed the things I left out. This time I will try to be more selective with my thoughts.
Now that Daniel Briere is a 5 million man seems like he is now all a sudden on the market. Montreal, Los Angeles and Atlanta are among the teams in the mix. Could it be that a possible trade can be made by Bob to aquire the speedy foward.
Here’s some good promising news for Habs fans. No it’s not some big signing or wild trade rumour. According to a report on Sprotsnet.ca, the independant scouting service “The Red Line Report”, rated the Habs #2, behind only Chicago as having done the best at the ’06 draft.
Ladies and Gents, the dust has settled for the Habs this off-season. With the exception of Ryder who will be signed within the next 2 weeks, one way or another, the roster is set. Assuming that Gainey does not pull off a trade involving Abby anytime soon, which could involve multiple players, these are the Montreal Canadiens we will see opening night.
rumorsnhl.blogspot.com reports that Gainey is still looking to improve his team. The Montreal GM apparently just offerred Souray-Ryder-Propect-1st Round Pick to Sasn Jose in exchange for Marleau-McLaren. Washinton, who is still under the minimum cap, are apparently also looking to acquire Radek Bonk.
OK well lets start…Gainey made a great move by signing Samsonov…we all know that. We also know that he didnt adress the issues that needed to be adressed (big Center, stay at home d man).
Thus far, Bob Gainey has pulled off much of what I have been waiting for during the 06 off season. In order to capitalize on the offseason and produce an extremely strong team for the 06-07 season, Gainey needs a large centerman. Many habs fans had hoped for the Shannahan deal to go through, myself included, but when he acquired Samsonov he gained the teams offensive strength although we still lack size.
I for one have critized montreal canadiens gm Bob gainey on sleeping during the first couple of days of this month. But gainey has offerd many players contract but got the bad end of the stick. Gainey was not able to sign players because player prefer not to play in montreal. They are many pros and cons playing with this organisation. But unfortuantly there are more cons playing for the habs these day.
According to tsn.ca
The Montreal Canadiens have secured almost all of their restricted free agents for the 2006-07 season, agreeing to terms with forward Alexander Perezhogin on a one-year contract.
Montreal is believed to be interested in signing Yanic Perrault or Martin Rucinsky if trading for RFAs who are having a difficult time resigning with their clubs are not an option for the habs
