You shouldn't be, since this topic was created 2 minutes ago. ;)

That said, Tanguay should be a good acquisition; he came pretty cheap in my opinion :)

eheh I just realized that the thread was just created since in the French side it was open a few minutes after the trade was done ;) Imagine Tanguay and Sundin with the Habs !!! Wow, can't wait the beggining of the season.

Actually, I see Tanguay playing with Saku. Why break up our top line from last year? This is the best winger Saku will have had since Mark Recchi! :blink:

I agree. Of course things change big time if BG lands Sundin or Hossa or another big UFA.

u could be right but it all depends what Gainey and Carbonneau decide to do with him and depends if they decide to make another trade..because if they plan to trade either Higgins or Lats then yeah I could see him playing left wing...other wise he may play behind Plekanec and Koivu as their third line center and unless they pick up Sundin he could very well make up an all french Canadian line with Lats at LW and Lapierre at RW

Welcome,

Tang / Koivu / Sk

Ironically I think S.Kostitsyn moves to the 3rd line and Higgins remains on the Koivu line. Koivu and Tanguay can both score goals but prefer to be playmakers. I believe this statement can be made by S.Kostitsyn that he prefers to be a playmaker. Higgins is more of a scorer IMO especially if he has two playmakers like Koivu and Tanguay.

Of course I hope that Sundin or Hossa or another top UFA is added to this mix allowing two current line #2 to move to the 3rd line making the Habs a very good team. :):)

I'm pretty excited about this. Its been like a month since any Habs news. He'll probably be good for 25 goals this season, he knows what its like to play for a canadian team, hes french-canadian and will probably be motivated by the change of scenery. Work hard for us Alex, I know you will.

I actually agree with you. Especially since Tanguay is more of a playmaker then a goal scorer. Higgens had 27 goals and with these two he should easily put up 30+ goals IMO. Sergei Kostitsyn is likely to play with Lats and Laps on the third line as they were pretty good together last year when Sergei was playing there. If the Habs had gotten a pure goal scorer to play on that line I would say Sergei would be the one to stay on that line.

I think I like this deal. We will need to shed some salary so that it does not effect our ability to sign some "impact players".
