Our buddy has Penner to the Habs E4. Sorry but I don't see it. Habs have no need of top 6 wingers, Clifford is a different matter!

Oh, Eklund. At least we're not getting Penner. Unless it's Penner for Gomez, somehow.

One Trick Pony 11-05-2011 04:50 PM

So what, e4 means that the teams are discussing now?

One is a Kings fan on Eklund's forum, the other is a habs blogger on Eklund's site :sarcasm:

Seriously I can't see us doing this move unless Spacek/Gomez were going back the other way and even then it isn't like Spacek = Komisarek.

It's funny e4 usually means it's close to happening, e5 meaning all but finalized :laugh:

In the same breath he says he's surprised and acts like it won't happen.

sheed36 11-05-2011 04:59 PM

Even though there's a zero chance of it happening but if the deal was Gomez for Penner I'd be all for it.. Put Penner on the 3rd line with Eller and AK and bump Moen to the 4th with Noke and Darche.. That would be a solid line up.

DogsFan* 11-05-2011 05:02 PM

Eklund couldn't be more wrong. Penner is the exact opposite of what we need

Then LA guiltlessly buries Gomez in the minors, is freed up the 4mil for Penner and lands a big name next season :laugh:

If we could get Penner for Gomez at this point I'd do it. We don't need another center and Gomez is becoming the odd man out. I never imagined DD and Eller would play this well. If we can get rid of Gomer at this point it needs to be considered.

Would you guys spend a 1st in a deep draft to get rid of Gomer if something decent came back?

Maxpac 11-05-2011 05:17 PM

Weber, Darche and 3rd round pick for Clifford?

Isn't Penner in the final year of his deal and set to become a UFA?

habitue* 11-05-2011 05:25 PM

Kopitar - Richards- Stoll -

Where do you fit Gomez in that center line ?


Calgary and the Isles are the two only teams that need a top-two center...

True. Didn't also realize Penner was a pending UFA.

Honestly I wouldn't want him then if we can't dump Gomez for him :laugh:

habsrule22 11-05-2011 05:48 PM

only way this happens is by a three way deal. Team A - ships players-pick to LA. LA ships Penner to Habs and Habs ships Gomez to Team A.

RE-HABS 11-05-2011 05:59 PM

With Markov coming back soon, and with Campoli maybe a month away I could see a Spacek and Penner swap maybe?

LA needs more depth on D, and both are UFA's. Penner with AK and Eller on a 3rd line would give the Habs 3 scoring lines, I know we kind of have that now, but Moen to Penner...I give the edge to Penner easily in the offensive department.

One Trick Pony 11-05-2011 05:59 PM

Is it me or the Habs are ALWAYS on the receiving end of these rumours. You never see one of our players rumoured to go anywhere. It is always Player X to Montreal... More clicks I guess?

You're right... It never dawned on me, but now that I pay attention, I don't remember reading such a rumor on his website ever.

Steve Shutt 11-05-2011 06:37 PM

Back in Feb the Oilers traded Penner to the Kings for prospect Colten Teubert, a first round pick and a conditional pick. If Montreal could acquire him for Gomez and turn around and unload him as a playoff rental in a few months we'd be in good shape IMO

Note: Teubert was selected 13th overall in the 2009 entry draft by the Kings and represented Canada at the world junior championships.
The conditional = either a second or third round pick in 2012, a pick that will be determined by how far Los Angeles goes in the playoffs this season.

It was the playoffs last year. Edmonton get a 3rd round pick 12. The Kings shipped their second round pick 12 to Philly in the Richards deal.

CrazyShea 11-05-2011 11:05 PM

Why would the kings need/want another center? Stoll richards and kopitar seriously will not happen

overlords 11-05-2011 11:21 PM

Only rumours I've heard recently about LA and Habs have been about getting Stoll, not giving them another center.

letmetinkaboutitNO.

We already lost McDo and Higgs for him, I should think that's enough.

Trade him for a 3rd round pick, if we get lucky. No need to throw anything else in.

I would be very happy to get Stoll... but that would necessitate Gomez being moved elsewhere (or burried in Hamilton.


a bit strange the silence on Gomez's injury & the lack of info about his return (unless I've missed it). Didn't seem like anything that serious, and a bit weird that there hasn't been more info...


could it be that the team has told him he's AHL bound when he gets healthy (unless they trade him first) :naughty:

highly unlikely, of course, but if PG did manage to move Gomez, and then find a reasonable deal for Stoll... not sure what LAK would be looking for in return.

Stoll for Palushaj + 3rd/4th?
Stoll for Spacek + 3rd/4th?

i'd do anything in that value-range going the other way.

Stoll's a UFA-to-be who is off to a slow start and not exactly a bargain @3.6M, but he's strong, RH C, hits and is very good in faceoff circle. Perfect complement to Pleks-Eller

RC51 11-06-2011 05:42 AM

Penner? well he is big and we have asked to be bigger.
He scores about what AK does.
Sure if we can dump Gomez for Penner it's great but I might ask would we do A.Kostitsyn for Penner?

We know Andrei won't be a hab next year anyway.

habshound247 11-06-2011 06:09 AM

Penner is too enigmatic. IF LA is shopping him after just trading for him at last season's trade deadline, it speaks volumes on him as a player. I can understand when you are losing every night in Edmonton last year that it wasn't a lot of fun, but LA was pretty good last year and if he has burnt his bridge there already...no thanks.
