The Team 990 in Montreal is citing a “reliable source” from the Dallas airport that Montreal are the front-runners in the Peter Forsberg sweepstakes, followed by Detroit, Anaheim, San Jose and Colorado. Reportedly, Montreal is offering an unnamed mid-level player and a 1st round draft pick.
L.A. Kings down 2 goalies, Montreal Canadiens probably the team with the most depth in goal…. A huge oppurtunity for the habs?
After that embarassing loss against the Sens on saturday, Montreal needs to shake something up. It seems that alot of players aren’t playing with much heart. Give Samsonov one more chance and put him on a line with Koivu and Latendresse. If that doesn’t work after 2-3 games I say put him on waivers and hope someone picks him and his contract up. Try Bonk with Kovalev and Ryder. Dandenault seems to be in a daze. Rivet is giving the puck up too much and Bouillon isin’t playing physical anymore. Somethings gotta give.
Ok so we have one of the best powerplays and one of the best penalty killing, but 5 on 5 we SUCK. Gainey can’t wait no longer he has to make a move. Samsonov is a big bust, he works hard but nothing to show for it. Ryder, a proven 30 goal scorer isin’t playing well. Plekanec is a hard worker but he’s no 2nd line center.
We have alot of assets we can move. Too many players that all do the same thing. Plekanec, Samsonov, Perezoghin, Kostisyn, Grabovski. That’s 5 players who do the same thing, and they are all very small.
I like are defence, but we won’t be able to sign are 3 ufa’s. Everyone says that they think we should move Souray, but I think we should move Rivet. He makes to much money for what he gives. There are plenty of teams out there that are looking for a solid stay at home D-man.
This is an online petition condeming the CBC for there lack of Montreal Canadiens games. Montreal only has 17 games that will be shown on the CBC this year, with 4 or 5 of them against Toronto, a few others against the western teams, and the rest only regional viewers from quebec have the right to watch.
After watching every Habs game so far this year, I know Guy can not be happy with his line up and hopefully is asking Bob to change it. Watching Samsonov do nothing game after game after game is pissing me off and hopefully Guy also. Two teams that I think we could swing deals with are St.Louis and Vancouver. With Legace out and Tkachuk probably walking at the end of the season offer Samsonov, Aebischer, Murray and maybe throw in a guy like J. Gleed for Tkachuk and J. Mayers.
I really like the Habs this season. They’re playing well and seem to be all on the same page. Aside from a bit of inconsistent play, I only have one complaint:
Now listen. 30 goals a season is relatively good, and Ryder’s accomplished that for Montreal, and that’s good. I’m a Montreal, and Atlanta fan. The only player which I hate on Montreal is Michael Ryder, and why?
What’s up with the Canadiens. The last 8 games for sure, they’ve allowed over 35 shots per game. We can’t expect to win if we’re going to give up that many shots.
