Please keep in mind I was not the one who placed Bourque into a trade, I was simply tampering with other trade offers beng made to explain Montreal's perspective. I could be wrong, and apologize if I am, but I believe it was either a Ducks fan who asked for Bourque, or, at the very least, was willing to include Bourque in a deal. I am simpy trying to clarify that Bourque is not a bag of pucks player due to one bad season.
Ya I noticed that I can't read after I posted but I cant edit so I was just hoping you wouldnt see my post
No worries, mate. No harm, no foul. It is good to be seeing eye-to-eye with you on something...
I understand ducks fans having mixed feels. Don't blame them whatsoever. I guess it depends on direction of course. I'd assume with Plekanec, Getzlaf, Perry, Ryan, etc... all hovering around their prime age, it makes sense from my perspective. I mean, if you look at it that way, seems like a no brainer...especially since they have big name UFAs next year and being competitive+having a backup in pleks makes sense.
That being said, maybe they'll take the patient approach or go younger but less proven. Who knows. It's not up to me to decide but I find the fit near perfect. I mean, sure if plekanec was 27 and not 29, it would be even better, but realistically speaking, it's pretty fair.
As for the hybrid proposals. I really don't want Cogliano and we don't really need another D.
To sweeten the deal, the best I could really offer is:
6th overall+36th overall
A little bump in selection, maybe even do it another time in later round but doing Plek+ doesn't make sense to me.
As a Habs fan, I would be ok with this. I am not singing it as the greatest of deals, but I am comfortable with it if that is what the deal has to be. I still think I would rather some of the Chicago offers, though...

That deal is a lot closer to what I think would need to go down, However I would want to see who columbus picks. If Murray will be there at #4 i dont want to make the deal. That being said #6 will still most likely still leave us the oportunity to pick Rienhart.
I know topdog is a Habs fan and he proosed the deal, but Cogliano is an absolute non-starter. He is not worth anything at all in a trade with Montreal. We have too many Cogliano types. He has to be removed and replaced with another asset. Seriously, he is of no value to Montreal as he would simply be blocking the development of a player like LeBlanc/Geoffrion/Kristo/prospect. Cogliano is too small for what we need and not skilled enough to overcome his lack of size. We do not need another player eating cap money for no good reason.
