Habs in on Robidas

Meh, we could be targeting worst players, but... does that mean he takes Emelin roster spot?
And what would we do with 9 D-Men anyways?

Jee 02-24-2013 09:37 PM

Good, we clearly have no depth on D and Robidas would fix that.

Watsatheo 02-24-2013 09:39 PM

Of course, Bergevin's first roster trade move will be acquiring another undersized D. :sarcasm:

Kenny Powders 02-24-2013 09:39 PM

I love Emelin and all but if we can get Robidas, I'll gladly let him take Emelin spot.

Kriss E 02-24-2013 09:39 PM

Why would we even be interested in this guy?

Only to then say we need a bigger physical D.

JayKing 02-24-2013 09:41 PM

If he takes Kaberle's spot, I wouldn't be mad. Depth is important, especially for us.

I think there are more relevant things to do than replace a 4M backup D-Men by a 3.3M backup D-Men.

I mean... if we get Robidas, there's no way that's to act as a 7th D-Men, and frankly, that probably means he takes the spot of Emelin, because I can't see any other possibility.

But why going for a 5'11 D-Men, exactly?

Upgrade Robidas for Bouillon - I'd be so down.

Bullsmith 02-24-2013 09:47 PM

Well that makes it a lock. Garrioch says Cole out, Ek says Robidas in. Put that together, it's a done deal.

Robidas isn't taking Bouillon's place.

Kobe Armstrong 02-24-2013 09:50 PM

By taking emelins spot you mean on the starting lineup in terms of top-4 right? Emelin would still be in the starting lineup I'm guessing. I would assume bouillon would not play over emelin, or am I mistaken? I'd be quite mad to see Emelin a healthy scratch.

Robidas would take the roster spot of either Subban, Emelin or Diaz. Bouillon has absolutely nothing to do with this.

Kenny Powders 02-24-2013 09:56 PM

Odd man out is Emelin if we get a Defenceman sadly.

Bouillon is playing better than him.

Not only that, but Bouillon is playing LD.

Flashback to 12 years ago, Robidas was traded because... he was terrible at LD when he was stuck playing there. It destroyed its confidence.

Bringing Robidas back to take the place of ANY LD would be pure idiocy.

I shouldn't have to explain what Subban, Diaz and Emelin have in common.

We don't have the cap space to accomodate him.

Weber would had to be dealt and Kaberle too if possible.

Who would be out of the line up then ? Robidas is a rightie. Emelin would had to be moved back to left...

Not a necessary move if it's true.

I thought Dallas was in dire need of d-men. Eklund is also writing that 3 other teams are looking at him, Ottawa being one of them, which is making sense.

No, you shouldn't, but you should also have to defend how stupid you sound including him as just another right side dman.

zzoo 02-24-2013 10:04 PM

Is Robidas better than Bouillon ? better than Emelin ?

Peter Stastny.

Captain Smurf 02-24-2013 10:05 PM

If the price isn't exorbitantly high, I'd be down for bringing him back.

OneSharpMarble 02-24-2013 10:07 PM

So what would we do with Kaberle and Emelin?

maybe you should read properly before you post. You don't get it at all. He never said that subban should be replaced all he said is that he can only play the RD and those three guys are our RD.
