Habs Inside/Out - Plekanec re-signs with Habs: TSN

As Habs Inside/Out pointed out, the signing of Plekanec leaves the Habs with $9 million to sign Carey Price, Maxim Lapierre, Glen Metropolit, Tom Pyatt, Benoit Pouliot, Marc-André Bergeron, Sergei Kostitsyn and Dominic Moore.

Things are getting pretty tight folks so hold onto your hats!


Yes yes yes yes yes! I'll do the fist pump with ya Tomas!

OMG! Was that a POSITIVE comment I just read from Tyg?

I must be dreaming!


Yikes $5 Mill per.........I think They shoulda gave him 3 or 4 but not 5 cause now they've only got 9 mill to sign 8 players.....ouch........well all I gotta say is good luke Pierre Gauthier.......Good luck!!!

No question the price is a little on the high side. IMO, probably $500K-1MIL more than it should be but the sick reality is that Plek would likely have gotten aroound 6 Mil on the open market.

Ridiculous, but true.

While I agree that it is an overpayment to Plek, it is nice to see the Canadiens retain a player that they drafted, for a change.

Thanks for the comments!
