That's pretty great value for Deslauriers.

Over $13 million in cap now, I wonder if an RFA is being targeted with all the draft picks being acquired?

That's a lot of picks in 2020.  Wonder if they will package a few to move up in the draft that will be in Montreal.

Something is definitely happening.  

 

Habs now have the money and the contract spots to add two people... one big and one middle tier.

Meanwhile Hudon is trying to fit into either Shaw or Deslauriers' suitcases.

I realize he’s basically an energy guy. 4th or 5th liner. But a fourth rounder has a what...6 or 7 percent chance of making it to the NHL? Again, it’s just opening space for Mitchell who will likely shift to the wing this year.

Deslauriers is an honest player, but hoarding picks is good strategy; the more you have, the greater the odds of hitting. Good minor trade, albeit sllightly odd for the Ducks, a team that needs to get younger and faster, not older and slower.

Finally, I’m seeing really good asset management from MB. Moving a player like Deslaurier for a 4th rounder is excellent. Cap space and draft picks are now the premier currency of the NHL. Conversely, long term over payment for free agents is a killer. I hope that M. Bergevin remembers that tomorrow.

Great value for DLO, in my opinion. I’m happy with this trade.

The value is better than what I thought.  Good trade here for the Habs.
