What should the Habs do in the off-season?
Thu, June 5, 2008

Having a big, tough team suits some NHL clubs, but isn't the top priority of the Montreal Canadiens.

So don't look for general manager Bob Gainey to dismantle his smooth-skating club after their playoff defeat to the bruising Philadelphia Flyers.

Gainey and Carbonneau met with the media to discuss the season that just ended, in which the unfancied Canadiens finished first in the Eastern Conference and in goal-scoring in the 30-team league.
Full story: Gainey will be busy in the off-season

What do you think Gainey should do with Canadiens over the summer?

"The Price is NOT right"

GOOOOOO SENS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

They can beat everyone in the East except Ottawa, they just don't have the players to shut the big line down. Price is a real pro, calm, cool and confident. Habs vs Sharks for the cup.

Carbo and Gainey are great leaders for the Habs. As far as the goalies, it is unusual for a young goalie to step in and start winning cups right away. Montreal has had the exceptions with Dryden, Vachon and of course Roy. Both goalies are capable of leading the team, as long as there is strong Defence in front. Montreal needs a signature defenceman; if they use the draft pick they got for Huet wisely we should have a cup in 4-6yrs.

well, they sure looked ready yesterday...

It was a good long term move. It's 50/50 whether or not he will be their Eastern conference saviour.

No Eastern team has a good chance to take the cup.

I like the way the team has developed.I was very surprised by the Huet trade but I think Price & Halak have what it takes to get the job done.

The Habs should make it to the second round of the playoffs at the very least.With a little luck (no injuries,etc...)they could make it to the final round.

Note:It'll be refreshing to see Habs games again on CBC since their precious Leafs will be out of the picture!

GO HABS GO!

Rogie Vachon. Ken Dryden. Both were rookies thrown in late in the season, and they both took this freanchise to the Promised Land. The road is a little longer these days, but the methodology has proven sound. Can Price do it? It's going to be interesting to watch! One thing you can never do is count Montreal out. They are not my favorite team, but you have to respect the franchise. Only a fool would bet against them.

Habs have a good team but the Cup team is coming out of the West Division, the teams out here are tougher and stronger.........

Dear someone, the pressure is getting to him? lacklustre play? are you watching the games through a coke bottle. I agree he`s young an don`t expext them to win the cup but the kid has shown that he eats and spits out pressure, at least give him that. For a young kid he`s pretty amazing, everybody in the hockey world has taken notice. Another guy says they have no depth. COME ON PEOPLE..HELLO. This team is set for the next decade.

Habs are the real deal. Gainey did what he did to baptize Price by fire - they know he's got it in him, and by throwing him to the wolves - he can't hide behind Huet. It's worked so far and will continue to work. The team is solid from GM - coach to assistants and now they're playing the system. Gainey is a dynasty builder and Carbo, Kirk is Work and Dougie J will stear this ship to a cup within the next 5 years.
