Any picks the Habs give up aren't going to be in the top twenty and the defenceman they get should make the picks even later in each round. The Habs need only make an offer sheet to the player whose team has Salary Cap issues, other teams like NYR's and Edmonton have done this successfully. Why not the Habs finally using the doors that are left open to them?
Gretzky was traded only because the owner was a greedy *****.
As for offer sheet, can't see the teams not matching any offer, except one that will cripple us with Gomez v2.0 . For example, unless you offer more than 7-8 millions to Pietrangelo on a 7-year deal, I don't see the Blues not matching, they'll make the space. Even a budget strapped Nashville team defended themselves vs the Flyers offer sheet.
On subject, this year is the year we see what Fucale is made of, with the departure of Fournier and probably Mackinnon/Drouin and others.
