I remember reading this...if the Monster is turning towards Dallas cause of Brunstromm (sp?), a former teammate ...bringing the captain from his former team would be a great move by Burke, plus the guy seems like a quality forward and could easily be one of our top 6 forwards and he won't cost us much either

I could be one of the leafs top 6 forwards at this point.

LEAFS SIGN Francois Beauchemin to a three-year deal believed to be in the range of $10 million...what a bargain for a young defenseman who will be on team canada in 2010 ...with all of the defensemen the Leafs have now, Kaberle must be gone for sure and there must be a package in the works...Brian Burke getting it done

Young? In terms of hockey life, that's not young. And there's no way Beauchemin is on team Canada in 2010. Now you're being delirious.

Well, he's one of 16 D-men invited to camp, so it isn't that far-fetched.

Yeah but on that list, he's probably #16. There's a reason why he got the salary he did.

When Kovi's on, he's one of the best, unstoppable, but when he's off, he's really off, he's invisible. Clouston's gonna have to really press some buttons to get the most out of him.

True, but maybe a change is scenery is what he needs at this point of his career. Or at least that's what I'm hoping for. He'll look great playing beside Spezza.

Now we just got to get rid of dipshit Heatley.

wow that's gotta suck for Habs fans...they lose Komisarek to us and they lose Kovalev to the Sens, a day after the parade too ...as for what Mango's saying, the Leafs were lucky to sign him for that much, he's probably one of the most underrated D-men in the league, he'll make Team Canada...book it.

Habs fans are going to be pissed too. Just yesterday they held a protest outside the Bell Centre to pressure Gainey to re-sign Kovy.

Rumour has it that its a 2 year for $10 million deal. That I don't like.

Habs are happy with what they have, they spent their money. Kovalev is hit or miss, Komisarek hasn't been the same guy since he got lambasted by Lucic, so Hab fans were more than happy to let those guys walk and hope and pray that the moves they made are good enough.

Beauchemin isn't THAT underrated. He's got a hard shot, he hits hard, but he gambles too much when going for the big hit. He gambles a lot in the defensive zone too. He's good for about 30 points a year. The one thing that you have to look at because he doesn't have a whole lot of speed and can be beaten in a 1 on 1 situation is how his knee bounces back (if it does). Have you looked at the preliminary list of invitees to team Canada? Beauchemin won't be making the trip to Van City. You're hyping him up WAY too much. The deal he got sounds about right, especially if he can bounce back to the player he was pre-surgery.

The good thing about it being a 2-year deal is this: You'll know he'll be on this year because he wants to impress his new bosses and he should be on the year after that because it's a contract season.

Was watching sportsnet and Nick Kypreos, don't know how reliable he is but i guess he's alright, said that Jonas Gustavsson will sign with the Leafs tomorrow...if he does sign with the Leafs, he'll be another solid pickup by the leafs ...now we just need some top 6 forwards (trade Kaberle, Wallin, etc.) and it should be an exciting season next year.

Trust me Doc, have FUN with Kovalev. He's a bum. The fans who were petitioning for him to return were morons. He's incredibly frustrating to watch because he's immensely talented but he never really plays hard every shift. Takes alot of shifts off.

Personally, I'm happy acquiring Cammalleri, Gionta and Gomez. I'd be even happier if we could somehow add LeCavalier. I'd be willing to live with that contract and it'd give us a bona fide Centremen. Right now, we're still a 7th seed in the East.

5Mil/yr for a chicy 2yrs, how is that a bad thing. Then again it's the NHL where 5Mil is big payday, obviously due to the size of the roster.
