    It's not MY job to find a replacement for Markov. That's what MB's paid to do.

    If I couldn't get a long term option on D via trade, and wanted a 1 year stop gap in the event that I couldn't get Markov at a reasonable cap hit/term... Brian Campbell was paid $1.5M last year. He has played 80+ games the last 4 years and has scored 39 less points over that time with limited to no PP time. Save the 4M+ and spend it elsewhere or spend it at the deadline.

    Not ideal, but not awful IMO.

And that's the problem...you are trying to teach them Lemaire system....no shit none of them graduated in past 5 years. You shut down all creativity....

    Every year we hear how bad the Habs are going to be. They've won the division 3 of the last 5 seasons. I'm truly not worried about the team for next season as long as Price is healthy.

    Campbell sucked last year.

    The hawks had to put him in the press box... use him at forward and find other creative ways to shelter him.

    Im not interested in that.

    Just give markov his one year deal at 6 million.

    No one is going to give Markov two years, it seems.

    Not sugesting this is a Markov replacement...

    Has there been an update on Simon Despres? Is he done?

    Exactly.

    Go back to him. Give him a one year offer at 6 and say we will talk next year andre.

    1 year 6M doesn't appeal to me either.

    And who are we competeing against? Nobody is giving Markov 2 years. Who else is paying Markov $6M for 1 year?

    The last thing i saw is that his buyout included an extra settlement approved by the nhl/nhlpa so he wouldnt grieve it for being hurt still.

    The impact #1 center we need is Tavares. Bergevin needs to align his cap to be in position to make a play for him when he becomes UFA in a year. Of course, he could always offer sheet Drisaitl but we know that will never happen.

    If he wants someone decent for this season he'll have to swing a deal for RNH.

    I am well aware of Markov's elite hockey IQ and puck moving skills- they will be sorely missed on the Habs D should he not return. Fact remains however, even with Markov's passing skills the Habs PP has been piss poor last few seasons.

    Drouin' QBing ability on the PP is also exceptional, plus his lateral mobility and speed are far superior to Markov's in the present. Only stated Markov's loss on the PP will not be as great and in fact the Habs PP may improve due to Drouin's mobility & QB capability.

    Ideally want Drouin and Markov (at the right cap hit & term) back.

    I have no issues w paying Markov $6M or even $6.5M but it has to be 1-year with $3M-$4M in bonuses; make that money payable at signing of contract if need be - limit actual cap hit to max $3M.

    With Galchenyuk & Markov signed for a combined cap hit of $8M opens up potential to address the 50+ points of not resigning Radulov using the $6M of free cap space by targeting a cap dump team using only picks as trade bait - (assuming $1M of margin and Plekanec's $6M remain)

    The concern is always the playoffs.

    As we've witnessed on several occasions it's hard to address needs in season.

    This is when MB should be addressing the needs we have.

    You use the trade deadline to get depth and complimentary players as the top end players hardly get moved in season.

    If he doesn't improve the team at center by getting a legit #2 center at worse I have no hope he will be able to do that during the year
    Go Habs Go!

    But this year we don't have the Dolt's genius to power us to his incredible patented amazing season starts
