Montreal would be below .500 right now if it wasnt for Souray and Huet .... But im tired of some Mtl fans and other people around on the board not putting/giving any value to montreal players that they deserve.
Example: Ryder is useless, one-dimensional player....it makes no sense. Ask GMs around the league and they would love to have a Ryder type player in their lineup. You need goalscorer, and he has improved his game this year a lot more, i know he still has the tendency to shoot more than pass...but he will improve....at 2.2m$ he is worth it....
And for Souray...oh he is a liability defensively ..blah blah.... the guy is playing his best hockey rightnow. but some would say oh, its mostly on the PP ... so what, in today's nhl, special teams can win u games or lose u games.... and Souray is winning it for us. What abt McCabe....he is as bad as Souray defensively but his value is still intact,if not increasing. Then, some say he is a UFA, he doesnt have that much value....why hasnt Doan's value changed ? he is a Ufa as well, but people want top players in return for him...same for Nagy, Symth....The same should be applied to Souray.
People make it sound like Mtl players have NO VALUE and its no fluke that we are 4th in the East.
The reason i say Souray should be traded is because he could command 6m$ a year and mtl cant pay him that much...and he is moslty to give a discount to teams near Cali so that he can be with his daughter.
So either u let him walk at the end of the season or u package him for a 2nd line center.
Edmonton is desperate for a D-man, and Souray will fit good there, or SJ .... they would love to have him and likelyhood of him signing with them are high...very high.
What abt Souray for Horcoff.....
then we can try to trade Samsonov and/or prospect/pick for a D-man....Brewer, maybe!!
