  1. I think if Price can play and a team is willing to not over work him to save him for the playoffs, then it would have to be a 3 way trade were us and another team can eat some of his contract so the team getting him isn't getting a big cap hit. For example We trade Price to a team like Arizona. We take on 4mil of his contract and get picks or maybe a prospect back. The Arizona then flips Price to lets say Edmonton and Arizona takes on 3.5mil, they get back picks. So Edmonton would now Only have a 3mil cap hit. Which is a lot better than it would be if it was just trading with us. But anyway I think that's the type of trade we would need to do. But I guess it all depends on if Price can handle a playoff load. If not best thing might be to retire (which would be sad and suck) .
  2. Dadonov Drouin Byron Should all be traded at the deadline as they all have 1 year left Petry Gallagher Price Hopefully sooner rather than later. Man i was hoping for this rebuild 4 years instead of that retool so we could of gotten more for Weber and Price. But man if we finish last again and get the first pick and get Bedard along with Wright I would be one happy habs fan.
  3. Price Gallagher Petry Byron Drouin Hoffman All next so the strip down starts
  4. Man why is this draft day taking soooooo long to come.
  5. I wonder if with their 2nd round pick they should take the top available goaltender. I mean we see what a team can do with a top goaltender and what it can't with just an average goaltender. So at the 33rd pick i would go top available goaltender and with the 26th pick top available player.
  6. I would call up Nashville and offer them this trade To Nashville Hoffman To habs 2023 1st round pick Hoffman is on a cap friendly contract and locked up for 2 years. They could lose Forsberg to free agency, so having Hoffman would lesson the blow. Plus if they can resign Forsberg adding Hoffman would be a big plus for them.
  7. If anyone picks up Hoffman it's going to be a contending team. Chicago is not looking to add vets but trade the ones they have. Look at team's like Florida Toronto Dallas Pittsburgh Washington Nashville To be the type of team's to make a trade for Hoffman. Edmonton Colorado Calgary Blue's Carolina Also depends on how they're playoff runs go. But these would be the team's I would look at that would be interested in guys like Hoffman, Petry, Gallagher, Armia, Drouin, Byron. With that being said , I can see a team like Nashville going after Hoffman especially if they lose Forsberg.
  8. A trade that could be good for both teams would be us and Vancouver. They're a bubble team that wants to make the playoffs but have little cap space we have Weber's contract that would help them. Vancouver picks 15th how about this trade Vancouver get Calgary's 1st round pick and Weber's LTIR which would give Vancouver $7.8mil in cap space Habs get Vancouver's 1st round pick 15th overall Think it works out good for both teams.
  9. I don't believe management will look for anymore pics in this year's draft trading players regarding our players. If they move up Calgary's pick and our 2nd round pick maybe in play to move up. I think they're going to be asking for picks in next year's draft. Drouin Byron Petry Gallagher Hoffman Savard They're going to be asking for picks in next year's draft.
  10. In order to get the result you need to lose. So the process has to be the same especially if we're in the bottom 10 come all star break.
  11. And this is why you tank if you're in the bottom of the standings by the all star break. We did everything WRIGHT this year to give us the best odds and chance at the top pick. Now let's do this all again next year 👍
  12. Watching these playoffs I can see why we were always called a soft team.
  13. Put in the zamboni driver to ensure we finish last again and get a chance at Bedard 👍
  14. How did we ever let GERARD GALLANT walk away I will never understand. I've always liked him as a coach.
  15. At what point do we draft a goaltender? With the news on Price not looking good we need to find his replacement. So is it this year's draft or next year's draft we draft a goaltender?
  16. Man can't remember as a habs fan being this excited about a draft.
  17. Good thing is we're either going to pick 1st or 2nd. I'd be okay with 2nd this year and 1st next year's draft 😹
  18. No reason to play him, I think they just wanted to get him some games before the season ended. Now there's no need to risk anything.
  19. We should of traded Price and Weber when Bergevin made the decision to retool. When you have a Price and Weber on your team that can still help you win now you don't rebuild or retool you build a winner around them. We would of got a lot more value for them. But now we have lost out and hopefully we can get a good return on Price.
  20. Well if his first game back showed us anything, its on a good team needing a goaltender Price would put them over the top and potentially help them win a cup. On a bad team he isn't helping 💩. So those team that need a goaltender like Price. Colorado Toronto Edmonton Pittsburgh Caps Florida These team's if they don't win a cup in the next 2 years because of their goaltenders will be in the market for a guy like Price. Now the problem cap space. Contract length won't be an issue since it will only be with in 3-2 years left depends on when we trade him. So I would tell those team's a 1st round pick a 2nd round pick and prospect for Price and we take back the max amount of his contract that we can. Price at $5.5mil for 2-3 years these team's would jump all over that. Now with Florida they have BOBROVSKY big contract so you can take them off the list because I would rather keep Price then take on Bobrovsky contract over Price contract.
  21. Man feel bad for Allen what a season from hell he has had and this team for that matter.
  22. I know Price and Allan are good friends and all, but I would look at trading Allan and his contract to save cap space and go with Price and Montembeault as our goaltenders. I think Montembeault has earned a spot on this team for next year. He's been a nice surprise this year.
  23. I agree with you, I think this year was a right off year do to lack of depth and a weak D. If we can address those issues I think we can make the playoffs next year. We have a lot of picks the next 2 years which we can trade to fill holes or add to our youth. We have added a lot of younger guys also with the guys we picked up. I truly think we don't need to rebuild. We should of rebuild this team and blow it up 3 years ago Instead of the retool. If we continue to trade our ufa's that we don't plan on resigning and using those assets to add depth to our organization we can become a playoff team on a regular bassist.
  24. What last year Stanley cup finals taught us is that we need more Playmakers on D. After Weber and Petry got hurt there was no one who could put the puck on the net or had a good shot from the point. After we trade Petry I would make a play for Chychrun. We have the picks and young talent on D to make that kind of trade. Then I would try and add a vet playmaker on D via UFA. Chychrun / Romanov Edmonton / Barron UFA / Savard Much better well rounded Dcore
  25. A great scouting team, great player development and depth on all levels. Smart trades and UFA signings. That's the blue print for a long successful organization and team.
