Even if the Habs managed to pick up quality goaltending and soon, why place a one-dimensional goal scorer on a team that's not built around an offense-first system?
Well, speaking strictly about my proposal within this thread -> Kessel + 1st + cond. 2nd I don't think that is a terrible deal. Kessel's not just a one-dimensional goal scorer, he's one of the best in the game and still young like Carey as you mentioned. Then We get either a top 15 pick in the draft or a first plus a second which allows us to go nuts in the 2013 draft with 2 1sts and 4 2nds. But yes that would also hinge on us getting some immediate help between the pipes, maybe throw in Reimer if you don'd mind?
