MTL fans tend to blow things way out of proportion.

586383790[/snapback]

I don't blame you. I'm one of those guys. If a player screws up in one game, i'll have a voodoo doll of that player made with pins in his brains. I'll wish for the player to get traded or executed. I guess it comes with the territory. We demand perfection. Richard, Lafleur, Roy.... we have a dynasty, maybe one of the best in all of sports history. So don't get mad at us if we get a little picky. I think we deserve it, especially after Ronald "McDonald" Corey single handedly ruined the franchise for a decade.

althought many rumored players don't end up going to MTL, look at the leafs, i think they've more then blew things out of purportion, every big name that comes up is rumored to go to the leafs

Ya, well most of the rumors call for French Canadian players comming to play for Mtl. I dont think we're as optemistic as Leafs fans though. At least its not like a Leafs rumor which sounds something like... "so and so wants to play for toronto because he loves the city and the fans and the team cause Toronto is the best and there is no greater honor than playing in TO!!!" LOL give me a break. There has been no honour for almost 40yrs. PS not trying to flame or anything, just adding some comic releif cause we all know its true

wats with mtl fans hateing on leafs every year i mean it gets annoying after a while

586385637[/snapback]

A friendly rivalry never hurt anyone. There are tonnes of them. Mtl vs. TO, TO vs Ott, Cal vs Edm vs Van, Det vs Col, Pit vs Phi etc... it makes the game more intense

*edit* and all those Lecavalier rumors comming to Mtl should be forgotten

Leacavalier re-signs with Tampa, 4yrs $27m

NYI sign Brent Sopel

That it WAY too much money for a guy with a degenerative hip. I thought he would get less than half that.

Yes, the young guys in the system are very good for the flyers, and I can't wait for the Flyers/Pittsburgh games, I'll be at the first one. Toronto will have a tough time this year, but next year will be very good as you said because many contracts expire. Boston and Pittsburgh are in excellent shape right now, and Washington, is ... well ... Washington, always rebuilding :)

You read my mind. I thought he'd sign for $1 to $1.5 million with someone. Devils overpaid.

Anson Carter signs with Vancouver for 1yr $1m. Pretty damn good price if u ask me.

Also anyone else think Lecavalier making $6.5m for the next 4yrs is ridiculous?

That would be a steal if that were the deal. Alas, it was not.

27.5m for 4yrs, breaks down to 6.875m a year. I think Lecavalier is a great player, very exciting to watch but he's not a 50 goal scorer. He will definately get better, but he's worth about 3.5m max if u ask me. Not until he can prove himself, which i have no doubt he will. but its still to early

i think Cujo's contract is full of incentives though. If he performs well he will get bonuses etc.

From hockey trade rumors:

Apparently the deal will involve the Canucks shipping Jovo, Cloutier, and Kesler for Florida's Luongo, Bouwmeester, and possibly Van Ryn as well. I really hope this rumour is true cuz Luongo is exactly what we need in Vancouver. Plus paying 4 million for Jovo who's been hurt the last two seasons hasn't really sat too well for me (despite his skills and talent). I think Bouwmeester and Van Ryn are gonna play solid D for Vancouver...but who needs D if you have Luongo as your no. 1 goalie.

i think its a bit ridiculous but not entirely impossible

Florida would seriously be retarded if they really wanna give up Luongo and Boumeester. Seriously, these 2 are going to be top tier players in a couple of years. Much better than Cloutier, Jovo and anyone else they might trade for. Of course, i also think Mike Keanan is an idiot.

yeah i believe someone commented that boumeester was off of the NHLPA website...could that be a sign of the trade actually happening?
