    I dont think you should judge s player based on his brother.  Thats how you get Marcel Hossa, Valeri Bure, Jordan Subban, Jared Staal, Matt Strome, etc... etc... 


    Lets hope Florian is a late bloomer, but you cant simply say he will be because his brother was.

    Maybe Arber is the Valeri and Florian is Pavel... 😁

    As expected, this is merely a move to allow the youngsters to stay up and keep developing over the possibility of opening up a spot to add someone else.  (It also makes it a bit easier to try to avoid LTIR for Price - this move alone doesn't make it happen but there's a path to doing so now.)

    What difference does it make if Price is not placed on ltir?

    Lots of buyouts this year, including some big names like Wheeler and Duchene. I assume this is good news for contenders who can sign them on the cheap.


    Or sign with us, then traded at deadline for picks/young prospects?

    With Arizona going way off the board to get Simashev, it's pretty clear that Reinbacher wasn't going to be there if they traded down.  Evidently, they preferred foregoing the extra compensation of a trade down (if one was still there, I suspect it was) and someone they felt was a lesser player.


    I don't mind the pick.  To me, he's the piece that perfectly completes Montreal's defensive puzzle.  On the right side, Barron is more of a second-pairing guy and Mailloux's defensive struggles might limit him to a third-pairing spot.  Reinbacher is a future 20+ minute top-pairing piece that can log tough minutes shorthanded and at five-on-five.  (I went with 20 as an ATOI as I'm not sure he fits as a primary PP option with the current prospect pool.)  Those players are hard to come by.


    Some quick scouting reports: https://www.habsworld.net/2023/06/habs-select-david-reinbacher-5th-overall/

    The NL League is very strong. Lots of former khl-stars went there after Russias war. Getting 22 points as an 18-yearold very good numbers. I just wanted one of the remaining forwards so much. 😁

    Looks like PLD is going to LA depends on contact extension 

    Good to get that distraction out of the way before the draft. Once again we are used by a player to increase his salary.

    So much for wants to play for the habs...

  6. Thanks for the great discussion all! This site is the best.

    I agree that its not a good trade because we dont really need to unload Gallagher yet.

    If we really needed that capspace in a hurry I think it would cost alot though.

    If we buy out gallagher in two years how long and how much will we pay?

    Farrell was near the bottom in playing time against Finland as well though.  He went from starting on the third line in that game to the fourth line today.

    Saw an interview in swedish news. He had an exam from harvard he had to do while in the wc. He said it feels great to have the exam finished so he could focus more on the hockey.

    Who was the last Russian prospect at this level who refused to come over because his Russian team offered him a new contract?  There really isn't one... so I'm not going to put much weight on that possibility. 

    Putin not allowing hockey players to go to the NHL?  Yeah, I don't think that's likely either. 

    Who knows, maybe the war is over in less than 3 years and he is allowed to go to nhl earlier.
