Habs #1 pick Louis Leblanc to Highlight 2009 Stanley Keg Tournamentsorry 'bout the hockeybuzz link.
@LDude, that'll make N31 happy.Also, what's with the extra $3k for Gui! Maybe $100 for every extra check he'll throw?
So the schedule is out.Won't be seeing Saku at the Bell Centre this year. That's kind of sad. Starting with a 5 game road trip followed by 6 at home. Kovy's in town Oct. 17th. Everybody can dress up as Doucharek as the Leafs visit for Hallowe'en.Don't play the B's til Nov. 5th....counts months on fingers...2 1/2 to go!
Tenderness is going to score 32 goals this year if he plays with El Niño and DonGion. I'm suprised he signed for under 1 mil. He obviously likes being a Hab
Like it or lump it, Latendresse brings phenomenal value at $800K...Begin and Kostopoulos are both making more, scoring fewer combined goals per season than Gui!Am I the only one who thinks the $'s are somewhat unusually low on this contract?
@ JC: He scored 14 goals last season playing on the third line and missing 20+ games due to an injury. Its a hell of a deal for 800k!I read somewhere that last season, he had the best rate for goals scored 5 on 5 per minute. Or something like that. I'm way too lazy to look it up.
Speaking of jersey numbers .
Dou$harek will be in town with his fucking leaf on BOOctober 31, December 1, and April 10 (the day he polishes his golf clubs). Get your lungs primed 4HFers. I expect game thread comment records to be shattered and splattered, all over 4HF on those fucking dates (unless of course Dou$harek hurts his girlie (apologies to our beautiful 4HF gals but not Zombiepleks) shoulders and/or gets ragdolled by Lucic).Habs at the fucking CotU: October 1, December 26, March 20. cbc/hnic wads get drained in their usual blue&white sploogefest.Kovy will visit Montreal on October 17, January 16, and March 22. Will he be invisible?In Anaheim: March 7. Probably for the best that Saku isn't returning home this season. Some/most of us couldn't bear or grin it anyways.
A bit sad that he signed a 1 year only deal... at that price I would take him for 3-4 years easy. He can only get better and even if he tops like that, he's still a 15-20 goal scorer who can hit... not bad for 800k.
@ Moeman, The worst part about his doucherism is that he's so excited to be a Leaf. Is he that stupid? It's Burkie this and Burkie that, gag me with a frakkin spoon.
I really think that Gui is a bargain at that price. Then again, I've never thought he sucked, so I may not be coming from the same place as everyone else. (too perfect) Word verification: rearmea. As in, Komo will be "rearmea"d all over the ice on Oct. 31st.
@Montrealiste:Herehttp://www.behindthenet.ca/2008/basic_5_on_5.php?sort=10&mingp=&mintoi=&team=MTL&pos=He's actually second (1.08 per 60 min) behind Tanguay (1.14/60) and in front of AKost (1.03). Pretty good, but Tanguay and AKost are more impressive. The other important column is "Qualcomp", wich is an aggregate of the +/- of the guys a given player was up against. AKost at 1.03 with, by far, the highest qualcomp is actually pretty impressive; it was even more impressive up to when Carbo got canned (around 1.25 for most of the year). AKost litterally disappeared under Gainey; don't ask me why.Gui! was up against softer minutes, but it's not anything to be held against him. Having guys able to rip apart the other team's non-first liners/first pair defense is very, very nice. I'm eager to se what he and Max! will do with a RW who can actually, you know, score from time to time (D'Agostini? I think Moen is due for 4th line/ PK / pestering duties with Metro...)
Anybody else worried that Gui will have a big breakout year (define that however you want) and then sign with the Leafs for a minimal increase in his salary?I'm considering flying down for the Kings and Ducks away games. Should I bother with going to the game at the Big Owe?
Oct 6th !! Habs and Flames at the Saddledome !!!!!!
gui will still be a rfa next year.
Great! So Brian Burke can sign him to a 6M offer sheet...At least we'd get draft picks in return.
Gui!Gui!Gui! Ah I love the kid. I still find it hard to believe he's pretty much just a kid. Too bad his brother doesn't seem to be coming back this year with the Bulldogs, though I wonder if his own shoulder injury was the reason (as it was a season ending injury, just as he was warming up).And Shawn Belle is back! Woo!What's up with the schedule? Getting that horrid Western swing out of the way early?
@Bryan: you gonna hook me up with Tiks again this year?
Gui has potential and $803k for him is a steal. Last year he worked his ass off all summer and started the season on fire, playing more than adequately beside Koivu and Tanguay. But I swear he got slower and weaker throuhg the season. With our new conditioning coach maybe all that summer skating is going to pay off...
