I guess they could move Galchenyuk but then it'd be the Subban trade 2.0 where they have to trade him for an older aging centre.
We have no idea who is available. Montreal has lots of trade chips to offer. You're just speculating the worst case scenarios. For all we know Duchene is a Hab next month.

Yeah, there will be growing pains, but I think he played center before. Obviously not at the NHL level. I think he'll adjust quite nicely.

Habs traded their best prospect. If they need Duchene, the best they could offer would be:

Duchene

For

Fucale
Juulsen
McCarron
2017 - 1st Round

Still not sure if this is enough. I believe the NYI, Preds, Canes and maybe CBJ are still better offers.

McNiven might be their best prospect now.

Fucale and McCarron are not highly regarded prospects any longer, and Juulsen is not a centerpiece to any trade involving Duchene.

Unless Galchenyuk is coming back, any idea of a trade with Montreal is dead. (I am of course excluding other players that Montreal would not trade and that Colorado would likely not want due to age or salary - Price, Weber, Pacioretty)

It's not even in the realm of possibly trading for Duchene. This is something I'd expect for Duchene at the trade deadline with pending UFA status in 2019.

I still can't believe they traded for another Winger (undersized too) for Sergachev instead of their primary need for Centres. Galy being included still might not be of interest, an under performing soft Centre that would struggle more against the bigger Forwards in the Western Conference. Anyways, the Habs might not trade him since they need Forwards.

Agree the chance to add Duchene to their roster is likely dead...

Are trades now frozen until after the Expansion Draft?
