Desharnais and Plekanec's Potential, Breakout Player, Meszaros and More

David Desharnais - Montreal Canadiens v Boston Bruins
Good AM Hab fans!

Over at my previous writing haunt, HabsWorld, the guys have begun again rolling out their Fantasy Focus series — an attempt at projecting the statistics of the Montreal Canadiens' top players.

So far, they have touched on Tomas Plekanec and David Desharnais.

All this notion of predictions leads me to a question: who do you think is poised for a breakout this year in Montreal?

Habs and Hockey News

- TSN reports that Philadelphia Flyers' defenseman Andrej Meszaros is out indefinitely with a torn achilles tendon. Given that the Flyers already have Chris Pronger sidelined and lost Matt Carle to free agency, this is certainly a hard blow to the team's blueline. Who knows, they might even target P.K Subban with an offer sheet given their holes in the backend.... just kidding. Sort of.

- Donald Fehr says he feels there is still plenty of time for the NHL and NHLPA to reach a deal on a new CBA.

- Stu Hackel reports on the possibility of advertisements appearing on NHL jerseys.

- Former Hab Hal Gill says he is happy to see Shea Weber return to the Nashville Predators.

I don't dismiss the notion of PK leaving, however I believe he is destined to be one of the best D in the league so the return would have to be big enough to compensate for that

What's to lose? We need impact players an we need them now! Enough of this future talk....


With negotiations dragging on like they are, I somehow feel his departure is a more real (albeit still less than likely) possibility.


Right now, future is all there is. There are no impact players readily available on the market. At the end of the day, that impact will need to be grown internally.
