What

Is

Wrong

With

You

Carolina?

 

If Calgary doesn't make the playoffs now with that roster? Fold the whole team up.

Nice win for Calgary. Hanifin and Lindholm would have solved some problems here in Montreal.. oh well I guess

Looks like a solid trading of skill for character - Canes win due to increase in character

trades are hard. 

 

the habs don't have a package to get hanifan and lindholm unfortunately. 

 

they have 3 chips in reality, Price, Weber and Pacs.

Maybe I value Hanifin too high but this seems lopsided for Calgary

That’s exactly what you need to do with a guy who had a career year and is really not likely to repeat.  If that was MB he probably would have resigned him to a Shaw type deal, while playing hardball with Subban/galchenyuk type players.

:lol: I haven't laughed so hard at a post on this site in a while. Thanks, Saku!

 

I believe it was Habs29 who urged the Habs to swoop in on Carolina and see if we couldn't profit from their confusion. He lives in Calgary, so I guess the Flames got the memo instead.

The thing with trades is that it takes two teams to agree on the deal. Do we think Bergevin didn't inquire about those players at all? Swoop in and make Carolina take the deal? We should hire Habs29 to be GM.

Doesn't top Burkes comments yesterday about Toronto and Montreal being the two hardest markets to GM in.

In Montreal you're stupid twice ... You're stupid in English and French 

In Toronto you're stupid once but all the time. Best line ever.

Really.  I think CAR got the better of the trade personally.  Hanifin/Lindholm are underachievers and overrated IMO.  Time will tell as they say!

Xavier Ouellet is getting bought out by the Detroit Red Wings. He's from France but played in the Q.

 

6'1" former 2nd rounder who played for the Junior and Armada (Bouchard and Ducharme both coached him as assistants), 24 years old, left handed shot.

 

45 games for the Red Wings and only seven assists. Only one goal and two assists less what Bergevin did with the Red Wings in 95-96 in 70 games.

I am going with a no, I've had enough with the 6th/7th D pickup after pickup , quite frankly it is time to let Mete, Rielly, and Juulsen take the ball and run with it. We should only be targeting a legitimate top 4 D or nothing, because nothing else will help us improve anyway.

Toronto getting him would be interesting. Offence down the middle is something they have in surplus. Adding Tavares would mean a lot of guys getting shipped out to make room, likely for low cost youngsters in places they need like defence. 

 

But if they get him they got him. It was inevitable. Tavares is only coming here if he wants to. He certainly isn't coming here because it's the best team in the league. Or even 20th best.

They could max him for one year without having to do much to their roster - they have a ton of cap room this summer but will be restricted to one-year deals with Marner/Matthews coming up next season.  Would Tavares do one year at $15.9M and then hit the market again next offseason?  It's an interesting idea.
