Anybody who thinks you can ice pretty much the same team that finished 15th and compete is ****ing ********.
You need to remember a few things. What does Montreal have to give to obtain a decent return. Nobody wants Gomez, he is worthless and useless with a superstar front loaded type contract.
Also nobody wanted to sign Campoli in the summer. Why would they need him now. He has been brutal all season long.
Kaberle was traded 3 months later after Carolina signed him to that awful contract. He has offered around the league back then. Why would teams rush to obtain his services now?
Plekanec has a lengthy contract and no team will take a chance on him right now. He is having a bad season.
Moen and Gionta are injured and hard to trade. I think they were foolish of keeping Moen around. Even for a seventh pick, I would have pulled the trigger on that deal.
The only players that have value are the ones that play well. Are you willing to sacrifice a Subban, DD or Price in a trade?
