There is a fresh crop off UFA's this off season and while the Habs may be strapped for cash, I thought I would take a look at some players that I think could help push their game to the next level.
For the purposes of this exercise, I am not going to resign Tomas Plekanec. His regular season totals were healthy enough and he was one of the few who didn't get hurt, but his playoff performance was invisible. At a time when most players were wearing their hearts on the sleeves, he was a no show.
I am also keeping Darche, Bergeron and Moore. Please also note that I do not expect to sign everyone listed, it is just a look at some guys that could help out. Obviously, the Kovalchuk's and Marleau's are out of this equation, unless of course the Habs could somehow unload A.Kos or Hamrlik.
I hope you enjoy the list and feel free to share your thoughts.
