Well, if anyone is going to trade Draisaitl, it's Big Pete!
I think I'm of the same mindset now. Trade Price & Weber along with Pacioretty, and do this thing right. Get more picks for this draft coming. So that the prospects are all in the same development process. Having Kotkaniemi, Poehling and co. are wonderful. But another wave of solid prospects could set this roster up pretty nicely in 2-3 years.
Hey maybe we're wrong and they'll go Hasek & Chelios-esque into Canadiens lore.
..but I have a reeaallllyy good feeling about Lindgren. Part of me really wants Price traded for a monumental return. These next 2 years are basically botched. Give Lindgren the starts, let him get experience for when the roster fills out properly. I'd love him to sign a 6yr 2m per. Just to be a solid backup, but I think he's too good for that, and he knows it. If anything I'd be trying to gouge Minnesota for thier local Lindgren. I'd be ready to move on from Dubnek very shortly.
