I'm good with these moves. Got a Gallagher-type right handed shooter, 5'11, 179lbs 24 years old. Now we don't look so weak on the right wing.

Was told the Fowler for the 9th was practically done earlier. I expect that to be announced soon.

So dumb. Trade a bottom 6 for 2 second round picks in future drafts, acquire a bottom 6 for this year's two lower second round picks. Shaw is going to be more expensive than Eller when he signs. Very, very dumb.

And it's been reported he wants 4.5 million

Hopefully the this isn't Bergevin's solution to our top 6 problem. The cost that we'll be paying him appears to be.

Emelin and Desharnais - on notice.

I don't expect anyone will take DD, I would expect him to be bought out this weekend, unless MB can talk someone into taking his contract.

If the Fowler for Montreal's 9th does happen. Emelin will be gone before the season starts.

So, assuming the picks cancel out, we basically trade Eller for a homophobic, young bottom-6 FW with a ton of jam, playing a hard, agitating style that has proven successful in the playoffs.

IF the contract is within reason, that seems like a solid move. We've got no shortage of bottom-6 C, so I doubt we'll miss L'il Baby Lars very much. We just got harder to play against. We also addressed a weakness that I identified a little while back, namely the dearth of Cup rings/experience.

I'm just going to take a moment to say this is why I though Dubois could go ahead of Galchenyuk in the other thread.

According to that write up, would is be reasonable to believe Shaw would be getting $3.75-$4 per and that is fair? Eller was getting $3.5 so this only increases our cap by $500k
