    Continue…

    Karlsson?
    Duchene?
    Gardiner?
    Edler?

    Let's just hope Bergevin doesn't sign a Sheahan and call it a day...

    Think much chance we move couple of big contracts for extra picks, and venture deep into UFA? Shaw, or a Drouin, Petry? Gives us over 20 million in cap space. Plus many picks for '20 draft.

    We are not signing anyone of significance but it has nothing to do with saving money.:sarcasm: You would have to be delusional to think that a billion dollar organization like the habs even care about saving millions of dollars and it's not even the reason why they hold on to a crappy gm.:sarcasm:

    I’d like to win the lottery (not referring to hockey) too but after years of trying, I know my odds when trying. Even then, we can’t afford all that, another unfortunate part of life cap wise. Tired of mediocre crap, we have to keep rebuilding/retooling and get lucky like all the rest who’re consistently contenders. Luck is a part a lot of fans who’re trigger happy don’t want to accept, or neither don’t want to try because they’d rather watch the team be mediocre then take the chance it takes to win it all in a 31/32 league team.

    How about UFA players NOT wanting to play for the Habs. Could it be that simple ? They have 31 teams to chose from in the chocolate box.

    It was the same thing with trying to trade for centers, they are just not available.:sarcasm:

    A trade is a totally different ball game.

    I don't know what to make of Duchene. He is a good player and I don't think we should be passing up on good players for free. On the other hand, I don't know if he is a GREAT player. People may say that he played for a ****ty Sens team, but he played with Stone, Chabot and Tkachuk with all the ice time he wanted. I think he will get around $9 million and I have serious doubts if he is worth it. A fast, goalscoring centerman that can win faceoffs would be nice, but I don't know if he scores 75+ points playing on the Habs. He could very well end up being a 55-60 point player here.

    You do know teams always overpay come July 1st. To me the only legit FA in the past few years I would have signed for 7 years was Tavares and it’s clear he had no interest. This year is no different, I’m not sure I want to spend top dollar and overpay for 7 years for any of this years crop of FA. I like Panarin but not sure we have a centre to play with him. Karlsson health issues really scares me...5 years I’m in but he will want 7 years.

    He's a 60 point Center who's going to get $8M. We should pass

    Edit:After seeing what Skinner is going to get, Duchene is getting more than $8 now

    Bergevin said that there weren’t any centres available via trade and then he limited the choices to just Joe Thornton.

    I love the condescending tone that accompanies “you do know “. If we can’t find what we are looking for this year in free agency , when will we find it? “You do know “ that we haven’t exactly drafted or developed it either. We are a team that should/needs to be creative and aggressive because we lack scoring and defence and there is no immediate help on the way.

    He did say that good centres weren’t available and there were countless posts that Detailed guys that were traded that would have been a perfect fit here.

    You heard it here first. We will overpay for Korbinian Holzer on the UFA market.
