I really love Theodore but, I could be tempted to trade him if the right offer came up.

The Habs won't be a legitimate contender before at least another 3 to 4 years and thats a big "if" as long as they can get bigger at the forward positons and quick. There is nothing huge in term of size on the farm as their best prospects are on the small side. Drafting big forwards will only provide results in 5 to 6 years and even then the odds are so low.

We need to get bigger now and trading Theo could be the solution.

My proposal is:

Ottawa Theodore + Perreault + Dackell + 1st 2005 + Cash
Montreal Lalime + Spezza + Fischer + 1st and 2nd 2004


Reasonning

Lalime will help groom Garon to become a solid number one in 2 to 3 years

Spezza is the big center the habs need and Perreault is the face off specialist a contending team, such as Sens, need in the playoffs.

Ottawa would need a PK specialist for the playoffs. In the absence of Fischer this year, Ottawa's PK has been very weak.

Fischer is a power forward to be. He as been injured all year. His timing will be off when he gets back. Will it be there come playoff time.

Sens are said to be offering there draft picks. If they win the cup, it will be the 30th pick. (Theo can certainly lead them there)

Canadians' pick in 2005 should be mid range because of weaknesses in nets.

I do realize that Theo's value is not this high but a team wanting the cup this year might just be willing to over pay. This is the only way I trade Theo.

I would get Philly and Ottawa in a bidding war. I can see Philly feelling very uneasy if the Sens get a hold of Theo. They might want to over pay even more.

What do you think.
