  1. Permanent Rumour Thread

    Do you think Hudon would work in this scenario? Habs are looking to move him anyway.
  2. Not to worried about the back up job this season so I wouldn't trade any assets to address it. There will be plenty of goalies available on July 1st if the Habs want to give Lindgren some competition for the back up role next season.
  3. Permanent Rumour Thread

    I'd rather gamble on a pick than acquire depth, but it's not like Hudon has much value anyway.
  4. Permanent Rumour Thread

    Pretty sure the Chiarelli had shopped him before he was fired. Considering a deal was never made with any team, I would guess there trying to a lot for him. I'd speculate that they would want Mete or another player of that caliber. Personally I wouldn't trade for him this year. He's one more season like this away from having Yakupov value (3rd and a minor leaguer). That's when I would pounce. Of course, he could turn things around too and be worth more than he now. It's a gamble either way.
  5. Primeau will be 26 when Price's contract expires (Price will be 38). So Primeau should be entering his prime by then assuming he gets to the NHL and continues to develop well like he currently seems to be. Goaltenders are notoriously difficult to project, but if he has starter potential at the NHL level he could possibly take over as the starter some day. Spend 1 or 2 more years in the NCAA, another year or 2 in the AHL, and then he could spend some time as Price's backup until it's time to take over. It's good to have a succession (not sure of the spelling on that) plan for Price. Not saying that Primeau will ever be as good as Price, but might be able to be the team's starter one day.

    I thought Bergevin wasn't getting into the rental market. Hopefully the Habs aren't giving up much (or just a depth player going the other way) for him. Maybe Hudon is going the other way.
  7. I was wondering if this trade was going to happen. Seen some people suggesting this trade on another site (well the Schlemko for Weise part anyway). Overall, I don't mind this deal at all. Weise is Claude Julien type of player and Folin is solid depth (like dlbalr said he's an upgrade over Alzner and I would say he's an upgrade over Schlemko as well).
  8. Trade Deadline Planning

    It's funny that you mention Vanek. I just read an article on The Hockey News site last week where the author was suggesting Bergevin rethink his plans to not go after rentals and suggested Vanek as a possible target. The author was saying that the price likely wouldn't be that high when you look at what he was traded for the past couple of seasons.

    I'd rather not give up Brook, but you have to give to get. I'm wondering if Philly would want a 1st as part of that deal instead of the 2nd. As far as the Hudon deal goes, I think I'd rather have a 1st rounder in 2020 (with the idea that anything can happen, like a major injury that makes it a lottery pick and a shot at Lafreniere) or something instead of Joseph. However, if we can get anything of value for Hudon, I'd be happy. Not sure Callahan waives his NTC to come to Montreal though. It's tough to say. I'm sure he's going to try to block as many trades as possible since he's playing for the Cup favorites right now. Solid deals though if they were to happen.
  10. Trade Deadline Planning

    I'd rather keep Alzner. Lucic has a NMC and needs to be protected in the expansion draft.
  11. Permanent Rumour Thread

    What would you have the Oilers add to make it better?
  12. Permanent Rumour Thread

    I like the Hudon and Niemi for Talbot and 2nd deal. That's not bad at all.
  13. Permanent Rumour Thread

    If the Oilers are dumping salary I would try to do Hudon for Spooner. Maybe the Oilers throw in a late round pick (or whatever seems fair) or conditional pick if Hudon plays in 95% of the games remaining in the season or something. Spooner clears $3.1M off their cap this year and next. Maybe he gets back to being a good producing middle six guy under his former Bruins coach Julien? As far as forward help I would dangle Tatar for Edmonton's 1st with some sort of protection. Could be something like: Edmonton Tomas Tatar Charles Hudon Montreal Ryan Spooner (for cap reasons) 2019 1st rounder (top 10 protected) 2020 Conditional 2nd rounder (if Oilers make the playoffs)
  14. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    What do you think is wrong with him? I was really high on him (as were many teams) in his draft year, but he just doesn't seem to be developing all that well.
  15. Hudon open to being traded

    What kind of value does he have? Mid round pick?
