  1. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    Two way centre with size that continues to improve. Trading him would be like Winnipeg trading a 19 year old Mark Scheifele.
  2. 2018 NHL Offseason Thread

    The rumour right now is Hunter becomes assistant GM in Detroit and replaces Holland when he finally leaves.
  3. 2018 NHL Offseason Thread

    Hutton for McCarron sounds pretty logical. Benning loves his size and grit.
  4. 2018 NHL Offseason Thread

    That was everyone's thought originally but Hunter wants to be a GM and everyone knows that Lou is in NYI to train his son to be GM.
  5. Habs re-sign Phillip Danault

    It's fine if that happens. Look at Kadri in Toronto. Great contract, would be a #2C for any team with a #1 but now he plays 3C to Matthews and Tavares. Also Danault makes only $3M so if he does get pushed down it ain't like he is a heavy load eating up bottom six space. It's also possible that the guys we drafted at centre don't pan out for whatever reason. So we have to be aggressive in how much depth we create there and let them see who is best. If we don't have a C that plays a two way game, Julien will rely hard on Danault even if he isn't as offensively skilled as Poe or Kotka and that means top ES minutes.
  6. Habs re-sign Phillip Danault

    The question with him is if he can be a 2C. He's an excellent even strength scorer so if he adds to that on the PP he very well could be. But three years at $3M means he knows he is in the middle six and doesn't mind.
  7. Habs re-sign Phillip Danault

    Exactly where it should be. Good deal for him.
  8. Joel Armia signs a one-year deal

    Opening lineup and the lineup with Shaw/Byron is... ugh it's confusing. We have too many wingers. Pacioretty, Domi, Armia, Gallagher, Hudon, Lehkonen, Scherbak, Shaw, Byron, Deslauriers... That's 10 right there. For 8 spots. Pacioretty and Byron are clearly the trade targets (I hope we see Byron and Peca together as they'd be the fastest Habs duo since Bure/Koivu) and if we move them early then maybe we could start thinking about Drouin back on the wing. Drouin - Peca - Gallagher Domi - Danault - Armia Hudon/Scherbak - Plekanec - Scherbak Deslauriers - DLR - Shaw Yeah it sucks down the middle, welcome to the Habs. At least that's a skill first line, a two way second and third line, and a grind line. Good for tanking while players still maximize effort/potential. My real headache is Hudon vs. Lehkonen.
  9. Joel Armia signs a one-year deal

    Wasn't sure about it until I found out he's still an RFA after this deal so I'll say good.

    Gimme Bernard if we're trading with NJ.
  11. Joel Armia signs a one-year deal

    Armia avoids arbitration for a one year $1.85m deal.
  12. 2018 NHL Offseason Thread

    No money to re-sign him with Schmaltz coming up as an RFA next summer. Looking at the league my targets would be Dallas, New Jersey, both New Yorks, Vegas, and Vancouver for long term deals and Pittsburgh, Nashville, and Washington for Patches as a rental.
  13. Permanent Rumour Thread

    Yeah, he's a speed demon Q wasn't a big fan of. Coyotes likely hoping he becomes their Arvidsson. I could see him playing with Galchenyuk.
  14. 2018 NHL Offseason Thread

    True, I'm still thinking everyone is like Montreal where if a guy even said he wants to play centre in a videogame he will get the shot over Galchenyuk. EDIT: After talking to Blackhawks friends, Hino is less Danault and more Byron. Super fast.
  15. Permanent Rumour Thread

    Bergevin still highly values him. He won't give him up for cheap, but I could see that happening.
