With the signing of Mad Max Laps Lappy Lapierre to a one-year, $900,000 contract, the Habs now have 12 forwards and seven defensemen under contract for the upcoming season. Backstopped by legendary goalie Alex Auld, the Habs are sure to win... some games.
First off, congrats to the Habs for not giving Max a contract of any length whatsoever, at a price I can live with. I think we can all look back on the regular season last year when he sucked. No doubt the Bertrand Raymonds of this province will take this as one more sign the Habs hate francophone players, but this is smart. When he has another sucky regular season, we won't be stuck with him.
Now what's left? Hmmm, ahh, let me think. Nobody really comes to mind. Oh right, a certain Franchise SaviourTM this franchise has pinned its saving hopes on. Cap Geek has the Habs with about 4.7 mil left, so that is more than enough for Carey, and maybe even someone else! Dare to dream, kids! Suggestions?
