  1. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    And today Eklund it is according to three sources... "On Ryan Nugent-Hopkins... With the Leon Draisaitl deal done it is no surprise to hear RNH's name being mentioned again in trade rumors. Before trading for Ryan Johansson it is amazing how close the Predators came to trading for Nugent-Hopkins. But now there is a team which makes a ton of sense and honestly I believe it would be the best thing for RNH: Montreal. The Habs need a No. 1 center and RNH needs a fresh start, and according to at least three sources, it could very well happen." I wouldn't put this in rumours seeing who posted this; but just would like to see Habs add Nugent-Hopkins. Obviously Gallagher would still seem biggest piece going West for him.

    Eklund babbling about Duclair from Ariz to Habs of course aint happening but would Duclair help Habs? Still a fairly unproven winger, but what should he cost the Habs? A 2nd pick and mediocre prospect (say a Scherbak)? He had one full year in NHL and got 20g 44pts. http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/pdisplay.php?pid=143840

    Ulaanbaatar is 7800km from here, but Montreal is 4000km away, so wouldn't be a huge difference for me...and maybe Mongolia has a nice low tax rate, Yaks for everyone, Cheerleaders and could attract some $$ hungry free agents?

    Well, have a perfect example of that; NY Rangers had ZERO 1st picks in 2013, 14, 15 nor 2016. Did Sather dig a big enough hole for their new GM.

    Sounds like Sakic still dangling Duchene but assume still asking too much. http://www.hockeybuzz.com/blog/Rick-Sadowski/Sakic-discusses-Duchene-Zadorov/188/86964
  7. Kinda thought he might be like Prust.
  8. Permanent Rumour Thread

    Whos said anything about mailing it in, in the post you quoted? Safer to say that the guy loves money, hockey is simply means to end. He is a Jedi now is he? Also past his prime years, like Malkin & Crosby who put up several 100+point seasons in their 20s and now is at 31/30, injuries has taken toll and still ppg players but not 100pt+ guys anymore. And Radulov put up 18g 54pts as 30 yr old...so that is likely what to expect, not a game breaking or even all-star calibre player. Dallas overpaid and will regret contract is my guess.
  9. Permanent Rumour Thread

    Radulov in public "I love Montreal, love the fans..", behind closed door to agent "Get us the most $ you can...somewhere with low taxs, lots of sun and no f'in snow!" And those who think all Habs needed to do was offer up more $$, how sure are you that would even do it? "Either Alexander Radulov is trying to be extremely cagey in his contract negotiations, or he has no intention of returning to the Montreal Canadiens come the start of the 2017-2018 National Hockey League season. "
  10. Permanent Rumour Thread

    I think he is gonna mail it in now that he has his pile of gold and wont last till end of contract, but who knows you could be correct.
  11. Permanent Rumour Thread

    I think you are in the minority on that one. $7m+ for 18g scorer?

    Would Da Costa be worth going after? Would he sign with Habs? http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/pdisplay.php?pid=107539
  13. August 15 College Free Agents

    I doubt he can play 20+minutes for any team but a crappy one who is looking to the 2018 draft more than 2018 playoffs and an 82 game season is quite a step up from short NCAA season.

    Does the kid return to friggin Wisconsin every summer, no? But I suppose who would, even Belorussia is more appealing.

    Someone said Habs 'may' be a target for Butcher, but I don't think is an open spot to offer him icetime right away. https://www.spectorshockey.net/2017/08/nhl-rumor-mill-august-16-2017/

  17. August 15 College Free Agents

    From Lyle Richardson rumor bit; THE DETROIT NEWS: Ted Kulfan reports the Detroit Red Wings are expected to be among the suitors for former Colorado Avalanche prospect defenseman Will Butcher. The 2017 winner of the Hobey Baker Award is now an unrestricted free agent. In addition to the Wings, Kulfan reports “Pittsburgh, Chicago and Minnesota (both close to home for the Wisconsin native), Buffalo, Toronto and New Jersey have been linked to Butcher.” SPECTOR’S NOTE: Because of the constraints on NHL entry-level contracts, money won’t play a role in where Butcher goes. He’ll likely sign with an NHL team that can provide him what Kulfan calls “immediate playing time.” He could get that from Detroit, Buffalo or New Jersey.

    A Russian kid...who also may not be with organization much longer.

    So from 2008-2009-2010 & 2011 drafts combined, Habs will have exactly 1 player left with organization (I assume Didier is gone). (Gotta assume Nattenin basically gone also)

    And Gallagher could get 40goals, but neither scenario is realistic.
  21. 2017-18 Line-up

    Someone asked if 40pts is too much to expect from Jerabek this year. I think is way too high an expectation.
