Welcome Giant Defenceman!

Hal Gill, 2 years, $2.25M per. Now TFS (tm) won't be taller than all of his defencemen.

So it's looking like this for next year:

Markov-Gill
Hamr-Jaro 2.0
Weber/Rhino-Georges

Buh-bye Breezer. Rejoice!

$13 million in cap space left. One of Koivu, Tangy or Kovy has to be gone now.

Daniel Plainview said...

as much as everyone is going to cry about this signing, he compares pretty well to Komisarek statistically and he was good enough to play on the Stanley Cup champions. Seems like Babs is saving himself for a big signing.

Ok so a 5 year deal worth 10M for Koivu, 2M cap hit.
Then 4,5M for 6 years for Tanguay.
That makes 6,5M, which leaves 6,5M - throw that at Havlat, for 2-3 years, and we'd be good to go.

You'd have a first line of Havlat-Gomez-Tanguay... not too shabby.

Last post is, obviously, wishful thinking on my part - not even rumor worthy

HFF33 aka Panger said...

According to cap central at Eklund's site (I know, I know) the Habs have $18 plus left, not including Patches and Weber who would add about $1.7M. So if the 2-year 9M for Kovy is true, that leaves Bob about $12M for a top 6 centre and winger. Realistically the winger could be Tanguay and we could still trade for a big centre.

I'm starting to feel a bit better about Bob's strategy.

Where oh where did all our lovely cap space go?

offspace said...

still would luv to see a big center man, first line, down the middle. make it happen boob please.

Shutdown said...

Sooo. sportsnet has cammaleri close to signing with the habs... 5'9.

Anonymous said...

@Fear of small centres: Remember Detroit? Not exactly the biggest down the middle, and, uh, they're not bad. I would rather someone who can score over someone who's just big.

James said...

LOL that's becoming hilarious. Wouldn't it be great if we iced a first line of Cammaleri, Gomez and Tanguay?

Daniel Plainview said...

he's small but from what I've seen he isn't soft.good signing. now get Komi signed.

James said...

FUCK YES!

James said...

So no comment by anyone?
We just signed a 5'9 'gritty' Canadian boy, who scored 39 goals last year... I think it's great.

moeman said...

heh, I was still posting in the original Canada Day therad. Yes, heavily drinking.

I likes me the Cammi signing. $till time for another 2 new players.

Daniel Plainview said...

ok so I know I'm not supposed to say this word but Pierre Maguire is a fucking cunt.

msevigny said...

Things seem to be coalescing towards a rumour that Komi's got a big offer from the Leafs. I am going to kill myself.

moeman said...

KRex a leaf. Go fuck yourself you fucking dirtbag.

James said...

Holy fucking Hell I can't believe it. I feel like committing a murder. This guy spent years spewing this shit out of his mouth about how he liked it here and that the Habs were a premier organization and he FUCKING DEFECTS to the Leafs?
And we fucking thought about him as 'C' material? Fucking shit-filled douchebag.

Boob Gainey said...

Komi is an idiot. He is playing for a hopeless team, and he'll still face the Looch 8 times a year.

But I don't see why we couldn't have paid Komi the 4.5M?
