4X4 is a non starter
Then tell him go fck yourself.
He is not worth more than that. 5 M for someone who score less than 10 goals now, imagine in few years?!?! We are paying Toffoli less than this. I know it is C vs F but, 5 will be another suicide move like Weber, the overrated Carey and Byron.

I could have lived with that if he was the only case but Habs already dealing with two crazy overpaying contract.

Plus why Habs drafted Poehling? The kid seems to finally be ready for NHL. He can do the 3rd C job, and at worst it is him and Evans for 3rd and 4th. Either way Dano is not top 1 and 2, and Habs STILL need someone to play as top C.

Suzuki, KK, Poehling, Evans are our future at center at the moment, Danault is merely a short term insurance policy, he can't be part of our long term vision. I'd probably let him explore the UFA market but would be prepared to give him a 2 years contract, 2x3.5 or 2x4.

I actually feel we need Tatar more than Danault next year.

Great post GW , Dano is not part of the future or insurance policy

Those 4 are our C`S , if it doesn't work you go in a different direction

But you don't double down on making a wrong another wrong on a term contract

I wouldn't go more than 1 year , that's it .

Sure... He is getting purely defensive by aging and his production will drop even more.
Will you go to give a shut down guy 5 M?

Good question....Why did they draft Beaulieu, Tinordi, McCarron, Sherbak,
They were supposed to be top pairing/lines.
Poehling was drafted to be at best a solid 3rd C.
The expectation was/is much lower for him and i am fine with that. It is actually helping the kid.

Since I have yet to see it mentioned....Is this a wrong time to mention Habs have now won their last 3-OTs, dominating possession in all of them...

Danault, ne marquera pas dans les séries éliminatoires et ne contiendra personne
He contained Crosby, Malkin and Giroux last year. I have no concerns on his shutdown ability, regular season or playoffs. I just don't count on him for much offense.

I don't see it this year , last year was a BS format

4 months off and right to the playoffs that we didn't deserve …...that's absolutely ridiculous in any sport

There was no momentum leading up to the playoffs , no time to prepare , boom drop the puck and playoffs

So they shouldn’t include TBay amongst list of a Cup winners?

While they’re at it, why not eliminate the Cup champs during WWII, the US teams from 39-41 did not have any impact to their rosters the way CDN teams did due to war efforts
