CBJ, Montreal trade imminent
 
Saw this on twitter. Anyone else seeing this out there in the hockey world. After holiday freeze.

Lol i just posted about this in the Rebuild thread about this. I saw it too.

I have to think it is for Brassard or Vermette they love their Frenchies.
I hope it is Vermette.

edit it wont happen until the freeze ends which im not sure when that is.

Link? We better not be trading Brassard...kid finally had a few good games in a row...

CapnCornelius 12-23-2011 02:24 PM

Well, the Francophone fanbase is ticked that their coach is an English speaker. I can think of a likely candidate who can speak the mother tongue to their heart's delight.

And, as with all Francophones, it has been rumored for a long time.

What we get back will be interesting. My guess is a pick or some sort of minor prospect. Think Letestu or Nikitin.

Which means we'll never have a better chance to get rid of him.

If this trade happens the return will tell us the direction of the franchise. Hopefully we go into blow it up mode.

Id like a different GM to do that though.

Mathradio 12-23-2011 02:26 PM

Hopefully it doesn't involve Montreal's 2nd or 1st-rounder.

Not very, is my guess. Any time someone purposely mispells "Insider" you can bet they aren't a real Insider. Much like the old "NSider".

Don't know how reliable this guy is, but found it quite intriguing.

*EDIT*

Must have been typing this when it was posted above. Sorry about the repeat.

If it doesn't involve neither he Habs' 1st or 2nd, nor ours, I can live with that.

Why Habs first is shaping up to be top 10 maybe top 5.

Two Top 5 picks surely we cant even mess that up.

Yes, that's the only reason you trade players, because they are busts. Not because they don't fit into your team or because they could get you something you need more.

Face facts--Brassard is not capable of two-way play. With Johansen and Carter as the top 2 centers going forward, he's no longer a necessity for this team and he's salarythat can be cut.

Being a center, he has trade value. Being a former lottery pick who is young, a team like the Habs may think he has even more value.

Gagnefan924 12-23-2011 02:34 PM

I have no idea where these two teams would even start. There are so many RFAs and UFAs on MTL its kind of difficult to start even a proposal.

No desire to trade him though, because I do think he is an awesome backup plan if Johansen/Carter get hurt. That said, we need to get a Kyle Turris like deal or its a complete waste of the year we sucked and another high draft pick that goes out the window for nothing.

THIS!!!

But I dont think Brassard will be in the trade because Canadiens have Plekanec, Deshnairs who has played better than Brassard. I really dont know who can be in the trade because our problems are similar... . We will see whether it is right and if yes who.

CBJBrassard16 12-23-2011 02:44 PM

Brassard for Subban

:sarcasm:

That's an expensive backup plan. And there are going to be other options soon with guys like Jenner and Tynan.

Trade targets in Montreal though aren't exactly impressive outside of draft picks. A guy like Gorges would be great...but no way they trade him and he's a UFA at year end. Nothing in Hamilton really entices me outside of perhaps their goalie down there, but with Budaj as the current backup, if I'm Montreal, I don't trade the guy in the AHL because he'll be playing soon enough. A trade would the Habs to me smells of a salary dump for a pick, but maybe I'll be proven wrong.

While I like Subban I think he would fit in to well into Nationwide Country Club.
