    How did you come up with $23M? Is that without signing Rads, Markov, Galchenyuk and getting rid of Plekanec?

    21m LEFT TO SPEND........

    Rads 6.25M @ 4 yrs
    Markov 4.25M @ 2 yrs

    We need a a top 4 D, at least 1 C amd 2 C if we manage to trade Plekanec. I would personally trade Pacioretty.

    There is no way Bergevin improves the team this summer.

    It seems the target is a dman for that money. So far linked to Scandella, Methot and Alzner

    I agree. I just don't see it happening. If he can do it i'll give him credit but it's far from done.

    We need a strong top 4 LHD. I can live with one of Schlemko or Benn in the top 4 if we spend the money saved on a very good dman. Quickly the only one i see right now available july 1st is Shattenkirk. And i'm really not a fan of him. Many teams will want to sign Shattenkirk anyway. I don't see any other dmen who might be available july 1st who would justify having Benn or Schlemko in our top 4. And this includes Markov. I love the guy but he'll be 39 ... It's really not an ideal situation.

    It's the same for center. There's not much available this summer. There's Hanzal and maybe BigJoe. That's pretty much it.

    It's really a weak year for UFA and to be honest two of the most interesting upcoming UFA are Markov and Radulov.

    We don't have much assets to trade. We are super strong on the wing (if we resign radulov) so we could use a winger to solve one of the two main issue (top 4 LHD and 1st center) but after that the only assets we have to solve the 2nd issue is Juulsen maybe.

    People are drooling over the cap space we will have if we don't sign Radulov and Markov. I really don't understand. There's pretty much nothing available july 1st worth drooling about as far as i'm concerned. Maybe if you can land both Marleau and Thornton but that's a big gamble. They will probably resign in SJ anyway.

    That's awful. If this is what we get from the money saved might as well fire MB right now before it happens.

    It's tomorrow. It's a 5-day window to talk with free agents and from tomorrow to Friday (day before July 1st), it's 5 days.

    Galchenyuk can't test the market. He's an RFA. Habs still own his rights.

    He could go to arbitration (I believe he qualifies) if he doesn't like the offer. One step closer to UFA.

    If he opts for arbitration and they go through the process all the way and the arbitrator gives their verdict on a contract, it's the Habs that have the right to refuse, not Galchenyuk.

    You don't see Drouin improving the team? That's major coup.

    I'm talking about refusing a contract offer from the team, then going to arbitration. I thought that was obvious. Why would a player go to arbitration otherwise, unless he wants to leave the team?

    If the team refuses the arbitration award, the player becomes UFA. If the player accepts the arbitration award, he can go through the same process the following year, which is one step from UFA.

    Yea. I know how it works. I misread your first post I quoted. In my head I thought you wrote that Galchenyuk can refuse what the arbitrator gives as their verdict. I just re-read that you meant if he refuses it now and then takes Habs to arbitration. My bad.
