Getzlaff was an absolute beast in his prime, made for the playoffs. Talented, tough, strong and mean. However he is now 35 and his production has fallen significantly, kind of like Weber.   He likely wouldn't be cheap and I am not sure he would be the answer at this stage in his career but he and Perry might have fun playing together again. A 25-30 year old Getzlaff would fill a huge hole but they are hard to find. 

If this is still true after already getting Stall, MB should be fired TODAY. How old of a lineup do we want, when the rest of the league is trying to get younger??  We should have drafted Getzlaf- he was my choice when he was playing junior hockey in Calgary. This is like us going after a washed up Denis Savard. Sure let’s get Getzlaf, Stall be two of our top 4 centres. Hike we are at it let’s get Suter, so he can partner up with Weber???  Maybe we can also get Parise (my brother’s choice) for Drouin while we ar at it! I’m a Drouin critic, but i sin want to be moving assets for old men - and if they assets are lazy asses!

Well, obviously he'd be acquired to play center.

The PK trade will never make sense.  You can keep Weber and price together until they are 50.  That is not going to change the fact that it was a horrible trade and a colossal mistake:  we lost the tr

Man we really blow that 03' draft. 

Agreed. But 2021 is not the time to correct past mistakes!!!

You got that right!!  We took Kostitsyn at 10, Anaheim took Getzlaff at 19 and Perry at 28. What a huge draft for Anaheim. A lot of teams blew it. To get a franchise center at 19 doesn't happen often.

Don't forget we also took Urquhart in the 2nd over Bergeron and/or  Weber.  My god for the last 17 year's we could of had Getzlaf and bergeron 1 and  2 as our centers. 😡

Better late than never 🤜

So you’re saying that in 2021 you want a team that has Weber, Stall, Getzlaf, Perry and other players from the 2003 draft?? Why don’t we bring Vanak back too and trade for Parise.

Savard was not the reason we won the cup. Had we held on to Chelios and others after the cup win we were poised to be a contender for years.  Savard was behind the bench in our cup win!

Don't forget Jeff Carter, Dustin Brown, Brent Seabrook, Zach Parise, Brent Burns, Ryan Kessler, Mike Richards, Loui Eriksson, Patrice Bergeron, Shea Weber, Corey Crawford, David backed, Jimmy Howard ... and even, in their own way, Brian Boyle, Eric Fehr, Mark Stuart, Patrick Eaves ...

 

In those first two rounds the Habs got AK, Cory Urquhart and Maxim Lapierre

 

Miserable, miserable memories

The 2003 draft produced more quality in the 1st 2 rounds than maybe any draft ever,  Bergeron at 45, Weber at 49 but the Habs and other teams struck out.

Because no one likes to talk about rumours in the rumour thread, everything seems to go off-topic in a hurry.

Has that account got a trade right in the last three years?  Or ever?  The guy is just a Montreal fan pretending to be an insider.

I am guessing it's not Miro Heiskanen. 

Surely not. But I doubt they would let Lindell go, either.
