Go after a big tough D-man who can log lots of minutes and play with Hamrlik on the second pairing. Trade Ryder, O’Byrne, Chipchura and Kostopolous to Phoenix for N. Boynton and F. Sjostrom. Then Trade for one of the best face-off men in the league M. Sillinger. Trade Begin, Dandenault, Gorges and the rights to Perezhogin to NYI for Sillinger, T. Hunter and R. Martinek.
After storming throughout the season so far and a 4th spot in the East seemed to be reserved, the habs find themselves in a little trouble. A terrible game against the Leafs and an embarrassment against the Sens has all of us wondering, what will happen?
After watching the Montreal-Ottawa game I had a song in my head, “Reunited & it feels so good…”. Watching Heatley, Spezza and Alfredson thump the Canadiens showed what Montreal’s weaknesses are.
What can they do about it?
Ryder, Halak, 3rd for Bertuzzi and 2nd
Bouillon and 3rd for Boogaard
Here is a simple question about the Habs??
Since the team is clearly ahead of the development plan Gainey and carbo had in mind, what direction the team must take??
There has been reports that the canadians are talking to hossa’s agent on a deal. The ATLANTA TRASHERS so they say has given permission to gainy to speak to his agent…. Well i think this is a good thing for both sides especially ATLANTA unlike gainy will not let an ufa hossa walk for nothing especially when there not sure even to make the playoffs.
Gainey is not willing to part with any first round pick and/or future prospects without having an insurance plan.
Atlanta has made it clear that they are interested in some of Montreals young guns. Any hab fan thinking it’s a Ryder /Hossa deal, your dreaming.
Atlanta needs are at center, and on defence.
The fact that Gainey is trying to extend Hossa’s contract and offering him around the same amount offered to Briere this summer cleary states that Gainey is will to give up something big.
“Chipchura, Yamelin, and a firstround pick for Hossa is what I hearing.
So we all know that Micheal Ryder is out of town for sure by Feb 26th. He’s had a less than stellar year with a mere 8 goals and 18 points. What happened to the guy who scored 25, 30 and another 30 goals the past 3 years ?
It’s easy to blame the guy for his lack lustre year but lets keep in mind all the factors bearing in his downward spiral.
As everyone Knows Ryder has been rumored o be out of Montreal for a long time now. On Sunday, he showed up for the game, and was simply told not to bother dressing, packed his bags, and went up to the dressing room. He needs a change of scenery like Mike Ribiero. He too can be a top line forward in this league but not in Montreal. This is the biggest trade rumor right now in Montreal:
The Canadiens lost 5-3 to the Rangers last night in a game were they were up 3-0 with 10 minutes left in the 2nd. It is clear they need more offence and it appears that Bob Gainey will make a deal.
RDS has reported that the Canadiens have sent Halak back to Hamilton. With the Habs having to play the Sens twice this week, as well as the leafs, are they about to call Carey price back to the NHL to relieve some pressure from Huet?
After marrying a girl from Montreal and saying that he wanted to play in the eastern conference and wanted a shot at the cup could Forsberg suit up for the Canadiens?
I am a huge Habs fan and right now the team is sitting in fourth place in the East 5 pts back of Ottawa for first overall.
So alot of people are saying the Canadiens should trade Koivu this year or next cause he’s not what we need. Well check this out.
The Montreal Canadians have surprised everyone this year and are likely to continue to do so. Still they are not considered cup contenders and the only way they could be is to pickup a couple key players and fill some holes at the same time. The problem is that they are often out-classed when playing the teams with franchise players like Jarg and Spezza but that could change with a couple serious moves.
The trade deadline is quickly approaching, and many Habs fans are wondering, what will Bob Gainey do? The question we should be asking is, what should Bob Gainey be doing.
The short answer: Be a limited buyer…
When was the last time the Montreal Canadiens were ranked 2nd in points in the east…It’s been a hell of a long time. So what do the Habs need to remain contenders in the East ? I would say a power forward and a right handed D-man. So how bout this…
In Montreal speculation is beginning to arise about the possibility of the Canadiens moving Dandenault.
I truly believed (hoped) that Price would step up and gradually become the number 1 goalie as the season progressed. Maybe it was just over excitement based on his ’06/’07 perfromance, however it has become apparent that although a potential superstar, the kid needs more time to develop, mature and gain valaubale pro experience.
