Long shot signing anyways. See ya
In the end, his cap space is 30,000$ (more or less). So that gamble failed... like all of us knew but he will do nothing in the long run.
Will someone ask Marc Bergerien and his friends why the **** he was signed in the 1st place? Was he supposed to replace Markov?
Wait, no one wanted to trade for him?
I think they saw 'hey... 27 pts last year, worth the gamble'.
Wasn't there a small minority convinced he was an adequate replacement for Markov?
But, 62 points tho...
If they are making decisions based on the stat sheet then we are in worse hands than I thought.
Perhaps but they certainly didn't see him play in the playoffs cause if they did they wouldn't have touched him with a 10 foot pole!
If MB had been paying attention during last seasons playoffs when Streit couldn't even crack an injury riddled Pens D he would've seen this as a terrible move.
I don't see any other reason... they were so sure that Markov would come back on THEIR terms that they had to sign a replacement and the only one was Streit.... not signing Markov is one of the worst move Bergevin did.
Excepts it uses a contract space up for for nothing and everyone knew that except MB it seems. One can only hope he retires or heads to europe not to mess with the playing time of youngsters in Laval.
I expect Streit and Habs to terminate the contract (a la Semin) for Streit to return to Europe. His NHL career is done. I think this is why he's ''already'' on waivers today.
Not getting claimed tomorrow at noon... they will put him back there but on unconditionnal waivers to terminate the contract.
Hemsky should be next
Isn't Laval starting to get stacked with veterans? Don't they have to sit some guys because of the 5 veteran limit or how does that work?
What? A #9dman couldn't replace a #2dman? I'm baffled.
How are people still defending this. Meh its ok it didnt hurt us. He signed him to pressure markov. Dumb move that takes up a roster spot. Shocked it didnt work as intended on markov, nor that he was even NHL ready anymore. Just like we said in july. Does this mean our cap goes higher? Thanks bergie.
So Mete is staying uh
More likely he'll either get claimed, mutually terminate the contract or clear and get waived and then traded to another team.
Of course they are not, however his playstation rating were still high, so they took a shot
The gamble didn't work (and it was a long shot given his play in the NHL playoffs .. or non-play last year), but it was nothing. Again, who cares ? At least, they are going in another direction fast. The big problem remains.... we lost Markov for nothing.
Unless the plan is:
But Mete should stay. He's been Montreal's best puck mover on the blue line. That's pretty sad in its own right, but he deserves to stay.
