I really don’t like this. Montréal really, really needs a C and a RHD, so I have no idea why they’re putting so much money towards a one-dimensional winger. By playing Hoffman we’re having to scratch a pretty good player (like Byron or Lehkonen), so that makes this even worse. I really hope we can land someone like Dvorak or Suter, because otherwise our C spot is looking really rough.

It's about what he's worth and for a team that struggles scoring (PP included), Hoffman is a perfect fit.

Good luck Montreal… not sure what everyone sees in this guy. Never in a place longer than a season or two. Should tell you something.

This also makes it very unlikely that Perry returns, which is sad.

Best comment I’ve heard on Hoffman : I have never seen a wider gap between a player's skill set and sense of positioning. Guy has no idea what he's doing unless he's on a breakaway or hitting a one-timer.

That's way too much money and term for a PP specialist

MTL def needed to spend 4.5 on a winger and not a center

Bergy collecting locker room cancers like Thanos collecting the infinity stones. I'm sure all the MTL player's wives will love this signing.

I like this deal a lot for the money and term, but this is not what the Habs need. They should've used this money to sign a center instead of a winger.

Hoffman is a only still effective on the powerplay at this point. He shouldn't play anything above limited 4th line minutes and on the man advantage.

This signing is bad and directly the opposite of the possession strong Anderson-Tatar-Gallagher mould of winger Montreal has been successful with.

So the PP is looking like:

Gallagher
Caufield - Toffoli - Suzuki
Petry

Anderson
Kotkaniemi - Armia - Hoffman
Drouin

Saad would have been so much better 😭😭😭

Will they dare put him with Suzuki and Caufield?

He scores goals and that's what Montreal desperately needs

Is Drouin out long term? Don't see why Montreal would need Hoffman, and that AAV is too high. Hoffman is great at scoring goals but he is 31 and with that term AAV should be about 3M

Hoffman is a great scoring help and it’s a good deal, however, MB what are we running 12 wingers and no centers??? Because we have a plethora of NHL wingers

Drouin is expected to be at training camp, also how’s the AAV too high, this is a good deal

Decent enough deal, but I'm not sure Montreal needs this. They need a high end C...

huh? How does this address any of the needs of the Habs? not to mention it eats a lot of cap space- and the questionable locker room issues.
So i guess Perry isnt coming back? thats a mistake.

You have a lot of wingers, and Hoffman is a defensive liability. You just lost Danault, shouldn't have spent his money on Hoffman

While we do have a lot of Wingers, Hoffman helps our PP and brings us the goal scoring we desperately need. We still have money to add a center too

I think the habs are gonna sign Ryan Donato. Heck I even have you as a dark horse Eichel candidate (Don't expect it though). But you coulda had someone better, maybe Cizikas
