    I'm with you on that. Until I see Pacioretty and Weber traded with talk of Price asked to wave his no movement this is just dipping toes in the shallow end.

    Pacioretty's stock is way higher than Weber's, we should trade him before the stink season while it's still near the green with most teams
    MB needs to get fired for Weber to get moved
    Price would waive his NTC, our GM is just too much of a wimp to admit that his master plan has epically failed

    Maroon expected to sign with Blues. maybe NJD are a nice landing spot for Pacs..


    Max to Jersey for Jesper Boqvist, Yegor Yakovlev, and a 2nd round pick (becomes a first if Pacs signs an extension)

    somebody NHL-ready in the return needs to happen

    Here's hoping he's able to come back like Markov did and be productive for, let's see...SEVEN (or is it eight) more years? Yikes. Markov made it 5 before the Habs kicked him to the curb.


    Nashville won the trade the day it was made, Weber has maybe 2 years of good (not great) hockey left, and that is not factoring in his ability to stay injury free.

    I think that Vejdemo, Olofsson or Ikonen will make DLR expendable in a year or so. DLR has been with the CH long enough to show he has peaked. I hope we can trade him for a 2nd round pick (we got two for Eller).

    And somewhere Lars Eller is laughing with a Stanley Cup ring and a Stanley Cup GWG, DLR was never projected to be more than a 3rd or 4th liner

    pretty clear the plan is to wait for Kotkaniemi, Poehling, and the rest of the centres in the system.


    If Max is traded, i expect a young prospect, and it might not even be a centre.  With all the centres the Habs drafted, I could see them going for a LHD.


    The prospects still beg the question, who will be the #1 C?


    Max’s value might be higher as a trade deadline addition for a pushing team (heres to hoping he has 20+ in the back of the net by then). I would be disappointed if the trade didnt involve offence. Prospects make sense but I think MB would be seling Paciorettys stock short without landing a NHL ready asset in return.

    A player like ROR is perfect for a Claude Julien system. 


    What he is today is what Tomas Plekanec was in his prime, minus the penalties. 


    I guess ROR was wishful thinking, 


    now that the dominoes have fallen, who are the remaining candidates beyond Spezza and an outside chance on Trochek in a trade?

    We do not have the assets for Huberdeau or Trochek


    We are not a contender now, nor will we be for a long time. Add Tavares and we wouldn't be much better than the Islanders he had left.


    his name is Carey Price! add Pac? send Luongo Trochek Huberdeau back thats a KO for bergevin on the rebuild.

    ROR: Realistic acquisition

    Toews: Bowman will not trade him

    Trochek: Florida is stupid but not that stupid, he won't be traded



    This is why trying to get a top six centre is a waste of time right now. Develop one.

    ROR= 2nd line CTR
    Toews=1st line CTR
    Trochek, we have the assets to make this trade happen, if huberdeau is involved it might work.

    Development doesn't solve the problem which has been black and white for years, we might not be a contender by the time the 1A CTR pans

    Still opportunity to showcase Niemi for a trade. I expect Lindgren will start Monday regardless.


    The only team that may be slightly interested in hopes of rekindling his prior success is Chicago. Otherwise it's a pretty stale market for depth goaltenders.

    The point is moot.  The future is with Lindgren. Julien should alternate between him and Niemi because not doing so will waste the opportunity to give Lindgren more NHL experience. 

    Lindgren shouldn't be part of the tank, why ruin confidence in a broken system? You may be 5% of the forum that doesn't want this team to finish horribly in the standings at this point...I am in the 95% that wants just short of a firesale + MB gone + Geoff Molson stepping down. Niemi should start 90% of games til the end of the season.

    Vezina candidate after the Habs are done with him.

    I must admit, the Habs are notorious for giving up goals to NHL newcomers and wins to goalies that nobody knew of until they were in the program.

    According to daily face-off, Georgiev is 12-11-2 with a .908 SV% Hartford (AHL)

    I've always said, if you don't get the value today, you hold him to the summer, or even into next season to get that value

    Regression happens even with snipers, his value could potentially fall further, then what?  He might be 2nd line at best material by next season, Bergevin needs to pull the trigger at the deadline if the yield is right. 

  13. I think based on the fact that this will be the 3rd meeting in 3 weeks, the Habs got a good shot for redemption as the underdog at home tonight. Predicting a 5-3 win over the poo bears. Anything can happen when rivalry teams meet, and Carey Price's Saturday night record is pretty stellar despite the downtick in performance.
