    MB has the cap space to give Joe 9 or 10 million reasons.

    Habs are one of the few teams that can throw a 40 year old 9 Million cap hit.

    And they're the only team that would even consider throwing that much cash at a 40 year old player but even Bergevin isn't this stupid.

    Thank goodness Bergevin was never a drinking buddy of Thornton's dad is all I can say.

    He got 8 last year.

    MB aint nobody, he is the guy that will be willing to give Joe 9/10/11/12/13 Mill a year. If Joe was 30 maybe he wouldn't pay, but how can he pass on a 40 year old Joe?

    Who says what he is worth. MB wants a C, Joe is 40 years old, MB will have to pay out the ass to get him here, MB has a crap ton of cap space.

    After habs strike out on JT, don't trade for ROR and Bozak/Statsny sign elsewhere it will be his final hail mary.

    Or you don't think MB is the type of GM to overpay for an old over the hill player whose production will fall off a cliff? Joe and Pleks our new 1-2 punch.

    1- Big Joe never won a cup
    2- He wont join a bottom 5 team in the league
    3- he already got the money from previous contracts
    4- he wont move in a ****hole town and gm with snow when hes in CAL
    5- He will join a contender team for 1-2 years max like Toronto reunited maybe with Marleau or a TB kind of team

    Literally 0 reasons for him to join the habs.
    0 reasons why Bergevin should be on him also.
    We wont make playoffs for the next 3 years anyways.

    He won't sign cheap and MB will make sure of it. He has the 9 Million dollars waiting. He might throw Joe a bone and up it to 10 Million.

    I mean you guys can't see 40 year old Joe making 10 Mill next to Weber and Price on this team. All that is left is Lucic for Max straight up 1 for 1.

    We will see.

    I bet you MB is going to back a truckload of money to Joes doorstep and Joe will have to chose between big bucks for his last year , or less money and winning.

    But I don't doubt for a second that MB will be desperate enough to try and sign Joe to the biggest contract he can.

    You could tell ROR is only a no. 2C.

    A no. 1C would have made the opening smack in the middle of that wall. :sarcasm:

    Broken enough for you? :skeptic:

    I'm not sure I would do it but what's the problem with giving a guy alot of money on a 1 year deal. If we are just going to go into next season with 10m+ like last year then why not spend it on a 1 year deal?

    Zadina seems like a promising scorer, Kotkaniemi a possible Kopitar, Dobson a potential Petry.

    Tkachuk looks to me like Chad Kilger. Only 8 goals playing in a weak US College league. I see very little upside taking him.

    Bouchard looks like a Mike Green, Boo looks like a more talented Ellis and Hughes like a mini mix of Markov/Subban
