  1. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    I can get behind this. It would have to be a long term fix (like a player in his early 20s that would be with us for a long time). Habs aren't likely to be serious contenders for a few years so it would be nice to have players that will be just entering their prime around that time. Lets make the future window of opportunity to win a Cup (or several Cups) as long as possible.
  2. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    When was the last time that they weren't buyers at the deadline when in the playoff race. It's just what they typically do. If they are still in the race for a playoff spot at the deadline it will interesting to see if they continue the rebuild.
  3. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    Agree. If the Habs are close to the playoffs I could see them being buyers at the deadline.
  4. Disappointing that another Habs first rounder doesn't pan out. I guess these things happen though.
  5. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    As much as I'd like to see that happen, the Leafs would surely say no. Marleau is worth more than Plekanec. I also doubt Marleau waives his NMC to go to Montreal. If Marleau were to waive his NMC it would likely be to a legit contender. The Leafs have a better shot at the Cup this year and next than the Habs.
  6. Habs acquire Gustav Olofsson

    I'm a little disappointed with this one. Not that I don't like Olofsson, he's fine and could end up being a decent cheap bottom pair guy real soon. I just think Bitten is a better prospect.
  7. Byron Re-signed - 4 yr, 13.6

    This is what I expected a Byron extension to look like. He certainly has earned this.
  8. Max Pacioretty traded to Vegas

    For me it's because I thought the return was going to be worse. Given the circumstances, I think the Habs did well to get this much. Look at what Skinner netted for the Canes and he has similar stats to Pacioretty. Suzuki is better than Pu, the 2nds cancel each other out. Tatar is probably worth more than a 3rd and 6th if/when he gets dealt (unless he has a horrible year). Ideally the Habs get a 1st rounder instead of the 2nd rounder, but with no guarantee that Pacioretty is going to resign with Vegas, I can see why they only gave a 2nd. I see where you're coming from though. I wanted a 1st in the worst way.
  9. Depends on the return. If someone is willing to give a return that just can't be refused (in other words huge ridiculous over payment) then I would move Price. As for Weber, I would just need an over payment for now (because I see the value in having a veteran like him on a rebuilding team). I would like to see Weber moved at some point in the next couple years before his value starts to take a nose dive.
  10. Max Pacioretty traded to Vegas

    I was really surprised by this return. I thought the Habs would get less considering all that has transpired in the Pacioretty saga. I wish the Habs could have gotten an additional 1st rounder in the 2019 draft (because of it's depth), but Suzuki and a 2nd will do (plus the Habs weren't getting a 1st and Suzuki in a trade like this). I like Tatar as well. He may not be as good as he was earlier in his career, but I still see him as a serviceable 2nd liner (maybe 1st liner on this team). Hopefully he has a really good season and gets flipped for a good return (1st rounder 2019 ). Overall, I'm fairly happy with deal. I voted that I liked it on the home page (I would have voted that I loved it if that 2nd rounder was a 1st).

    Apparently the Flames have placed Troy Brouwer on unconditional waivers for the purpose of a buy out according to a few sources (Sportsnet and The Globe and Mail).
  12. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    I thought the Habs should have tried to trade for Mascherin from Florida prior to the draft. They probably could have had him for a song considering he wasn't going to sign with them. McCarron for Mascherin would have been a good deal for the Habs. As far as Pacioretty to Dallas, I like the ideal. I would try to move Pacioretty (with some salary retained if it gets a the Habs a better deal) and take Spezza back (again if it gets the Habs a better deal).
  13. 2018 NHL Offseason Thread

    I'd add Juolevi and Hughes to your list of targets. However, like Pettersson and Boeser, I'm guessing they're untouchables as well. I'm right there with you on DiPietro having also seen him guite a bit. I don't see him as main piece of a trade, but I'd be happy with him as part of a package where he would be a secondary piece.
  14. 2018 NHL Offseason Thread

    I'd be OK with a deal like that. I liked Hutton when he first came into the league. I'd be willing to give a little more if need be. A prospect that doesn't look like he'll amount to much or something. McCarron or Rychel if need be?
  15. Habs re-sign Phillip Danault

    Good deal. Fair cap hit and term. Glad he's locked up.
