TSN just reported that the habs have signed buffalo sabres defenceman Jaroslav Spacek...I can't find this on the web anywhere yet..but if this is true, what the heck is Bob thinking? I know I've been Mr. Positive so far with the Gomez stuff...but this is out of hand...a 35 year old 5'11 D guy..just what we need!

He has decent size being over 200 lbs, 45 points for a D-man is pretty good and is +25 in career +/-, Under 4 mill$ a season. Not a bad signing as we need the help on D. The Bruins have been doing some great things in recent years and aparently tried to sign this guy as well but we got him so it can`t be that terrible of a move. Not to mention he wore the ''A'' in Buffalo so he must have some leadership qualities which we can definatly use. I don`t know much about him but as far as I can tell this is not horrible by any means.

Welcome to the Habs Jaroslav.

Yeah, what you said Weep, I am really suprised about this signing, especially for this kind of money. Sure he is a good D man, lets hope he can stay like that for a few more years to come.

Welcome to the team Spacek.

I would have gone after Ohlund and Montador myself, and yes, there not "BIG NAMES " but in saying that , at least BG is addressing the need on the blueline . I do think there is a change in direction by management , either they are dealing with something else in the dressing room , or the landscape of the Eastern Conference , the way Philly changed with Pronger, Burke getting T.O. tougher, Boston with Chara and Lucic , there seems to be no direction, but more panic than anything , why ???? you tell me .

This and Gill ar not that bad...two relatively solid dee for a grand total 5.5.... I think you will see spacek hit double digits with Markov feeding him on the power play.

Gill play rather well on the backend for Pittsburg during the playoffs.

It gives time to the young players like PK, Obryne, Fisher, Weber etc

This is a decent signing, however 3 years is a long time and we have a lot of D prospects.

Not anymore. No Yemelin, Valentenko, or McDonagh.

We've got Weber and Carle immediately in the pipeline and that's about it. Subban will be good but isn't ready for prime time. By the time Subban is a Hab, Hamrlik will be gone.

That's for sure... I just wonder if Spacek was a good decision. At just under $4 million I would hope that he can contribute the same amount of points that he had contributed for Buffalo last season. I don't really know much about Spacek... Perhaps this is Mark Streit, take 2?

At least we won't have to worry about Spacek scoring on Price anymore...Correct me if I am wrong but I think 2 of his 8 goals last year came against Price. One of which was a bomb from practically the center ice line.

He's going to be responsible for alot of goals with Price in nets this year.

Spacek is a great pick up! He's at a very good price, and he brings us a lot! He was the leading scoring D on Buffalo! 45 points is nothing to snuff at. Hamrlik and Spacek will be a great pairing to sure up our back end.

This signing does nothing but helps the habs!!!
