    So the Habs are looking like Cup contenders this year. They've added Tanguay, Lang and Laroque. Goal scoring and toughness. What else do they need? My opinion though says they are still weak on Defense....it was exposed badly in the playoffs. Subtle, not overtly mind you, but enough to cause confusion from Carey Price who probably wasn't used to seeing defensemen react to plays that way since Price was in Pee-wee hockey.

    Rumour is Gaborik(who still hasn't signed anywhere) may end up in MTL if Sundin goes elsewhere.


    Although, I find it hard to believe Detroit doesn't have the inside track on the cup this year. Barring injury, those guys gotta be the favourites.

    Huh? Gaborik was never a free agent. He is the Captain of the Minnesota Wild. He becomes a free agent at the end of this year.

    Anyways, in the east I like Montreal, Pittsburgh and Tampa Bay. In the west, I think San Jose, Anaheim and Detroit should repeat as the Conference kingpins.

    Ya, Gaborik is a Free Agent at the end of the year and hasn't re-signed. He'll definitly be outta Minny before the trade deadline.

    You set up fantasy hockey. Me and Darv did baseball and football.

    I made a thread looking for fantasy players already and no one responded.
