  1. On paper, I'd think he would be. Considering they dealt Eaves yesterday for a 2nd, I also think they haven't been offered that yet or he'd already be somewhere else.
  2. Bozak may not play for the Leafs tonight (game-time decision); Ben Smith was in his spot during line rushes at their game day skate. Worth noting, Babcock noted it's not an injury-related thing which has resulted in all sorts of speculation. Him being out would be a nice break for the Habs though.
  3. It depends on what they want, really. Do they prefer a pick or an already-drafted prospect? They could use a goalie prospect but I don't think the Habs would move Lindgren and I can't see them wanting Fucale while McNiven/Hawkey are too far away from being NHL-ready. I imagine they'd want a 2nd rounder at this point, especially if they're eating salary or taking a cap dump back.
  4. I think they like the idea of that Plekanec line (which, based on recent ice time with Julien, I'd probably call #2) being a checking unit. They can't do that if Gallagher and Shaw flip spots.
  5. It would make more sense now as a rental player. Whether it's down the middle or on the wing, the Habs need another player or two capable of scoring. Sharp isn't a front liner anymore (and his concussions this year are a concern) but he could fit in as a useful secondary scorer. That said, they can't afford his salary outright so either Dallas would have to retain or they'd have to take someone like Desharnais back.
  6. Eaves has 21 goals which slots him 2nd on the Ducks. That's why Dallas was able to get the 2nd for him. Between that and his cap hit, I'm not too shocked with a 2nd (though the conditions that could make it a first is more than I thought they'd get). As for Jurco, he's only 24 and probably won't be a rental so that's why he gets a 3rd despite his struggles. He'll be added to the mix of cheap young forwards they have in the hopes that a change of scenery will make him a serviceable middle six forward. (I'm not overly optimistic that will happen but you never know.)
  7. So, who wants to take today's GDT against the Leafs?

    Believe me, I'm not getting my hopes up. I would still like them to sneak in though, if for no other reason than to keep the prospects skating for another couple of weeks. Brampton looks safe to make it but there won't be anyone of consequence prospect-wise other than Fucale playing for them.
  9. Wideman's a righty so he wouldn't help as a Weber partner but he could be a possibility to take Pateryn's spot on the third line I suppose. I imagine the Habs were also keeping tabs on Vrbata, Sharp, and maybe even Hudler out of the Arizona-Dallas game.
  10. Scout watch - the Habs have two scouts at DAL/ARI and CGY/FLA tonight.

    That can't happen if this team wants to make the playoffs. Utica is picking it up and may very well get a boost with Vancouver likely to sell a player or two at the deadline. It's time to start playing something resembling a full 60 minutes instead of showing up for a good few minutes here and there. Enough is enough.

    Mark MacMillan makes it 2-0, the one and only Yannick Veilleux gets the helper.
  13. That 2nd for Eaves becomes a 1st if Anaheim makes the conference final and Eaves plays in half the games. That's a nice haul for Dallas for a player who has been a bottom six guy for most of his career (but is having a really strong season this year). The biggest story today is out of Vancouver as Troy Stecher has the mumps while four others are showing symptoms.

    Hudon scores to open up the scoring for St. John's, Scherbak with the lone assist.

    One of those was supposed to be Broll.
