    This is a good deal for the habs. Zednik is an important part of the team and they didn’t sign him for a ridiculous amount of money.

    If Savard is able to pull off a deal by trading some of the surplus talent they have in the form of small speedy forwards (ie. bulis, petrov) in return for some additional size… then the habs are going to be looking really good this year!

    I think the Habs will dominate in 3,4 years.

    i would love to see the habs become a powerhouse again. but there are still a lot of questions marks: long-term health of koivu, getting some size up front, whether prospects such as komisarek, hainsey, and hossa pan out etc…

    but i’ll definitely say this, the future looks interesting for the habs.

    Are you referring to the number of games that the Habs will actually have a chance of winning this year?

    I agree that the Habs are looking better than they have in year’s past. Thank-fully they have a GM that doesn’t screw everything up! However, they aren’t serious Stanley Cup contenders and will struggle to make the playoffs. Last year was amazing and it was great to see them do well, but it doesn’t mean they have arrived. Everything but the goaltending is seriously in question. Their offence could be very effective, but due to their size it could be easily contained. Their defence hasn’t much to offer, no real number 1 or 2 players all 3,4, 5, or 6 type players.

    Anyway, enjoy the dreams, I hope they do well, time will tell……….

    Nice deal for the Habs, they didn’t overpay him like they have overpaid players previoulsy, i.e. Trevor Linden. Zednik is part of the Habs’ core and he is a very important asset to the team. Hopefully he will prove himself as a steady 20-25 goals scorer to earn this deal.

    In order to bring up Ron Hanisey effectively, the Canadiens would need to pair him with an experienced defenseman. Quintal looks to be the best fit on the current habs roster, but hopefully Savard can deal either Petrov or Bulis for an experienced defenseman like….Brendan Witt? He is a big hitter and would help the habs’ defense alot, but I don’t think Washington would ever agree to that trade. Jason Smith would be the player I’d like to see join the habs the most, but I think I need to be realistic here….

    20-25 a year? That’s what he does now. I’m hoping for 30-35, and the slim chance of forty one day.

    The Habs need the money to bring more quality/skilled veterans in to then mix up with these youngsters.

    I think the Canadiens have the best prospects than any other team.

    30 might be possible, but I think 40 is pushing it a little bit. It all depends on who he gets to play with.
