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!
