jedimaas Posted June 29, 2016 Report Share Posted June 29, 2016 ^^ I think there's a lot of smoke about the Habs being very interested in Stamkos, so it's likely true. Big names like Dreger, Lebrun, McKenzie, etc. all suggesting we're in on him. However, those same sources suggest Detroit is the front-runner and that Toronto, Tampa, and Buffalo are all very much in as well. Again, the money will likely be comparable everywhere, so it's up to Bergevin to sell his vision and product. If I'm MB, I'm pointing out 1. No other team has a goalie as good as Carey Price. 2. Very few teams have a D man as good as Stamkos' friend PK Subban, and those that do aren't among the list of likely suitors. 3. Montreal's core is in the same age-range as Stamkos, making this an ideal group to make repeated runs at Cups. 4. Montreal is a much better team than last year's finish. This team could win Cups with Price and Stamkos added to last year's roster. 5. Montreal will spend to the cap to provide Stamkos with the supporting cast he needs. Good ownership, good spending ability, no concerns about budget. 6. Montreal is a hotbed for hockey. Opportunity for extra money from sponsorship revenue is high. 7. Opportunity to be the undisputed #1 center and play with Pacioretty on the first line. 8. No having to sit through a re-build.
