Proposal: Montreal and Minnesota

OK So I'm watching all these crazy picks going left right and center so I figured why not throw my 2 cents in.

Minnesota Trades: Nick Schultz

Montreal Trades: David Fischer +3rd Round

Why? Because David adds more grit and size to their Roster. Nick Schultz brings a top 4 defender pairing 6ft that can put a few points on the board, has speed and is NHL ready.

Never said this trade was the blockbuster everyone is looking for but its something I threw together so I didn't feel so left out

Cheers!

he has size. Never said he had skill. I specifically said he adds grit and size.

At that point I would keep Fischer , I still have faith that in 3-4 years he's gonna be a good player for us . I like Schultz but I think the Habs can afford to gamble in Fischer's case

Nick Shultz doesn't provide grit for Minnesota?

No thanks from a MTL P.O.V

I'll take a tall defencemen who has the potential to fill out, who can skate, has offensive instincts and is good defensively.

I don't see Minnesota's motivation to do this. They just signed him to a six year deal in February.

What he said. What's the incentive for Minnesota here? They're dying for an extra 3rd? At the cost of putting a hole in their blueline for a couple years?

Mtl is really deep in defensive prospects that they can do whatever they want wth Fischer. I'm sure they wouldn't mind trading him if the right deal came along but you still have to figure that as a 1st round draft pick he still has alot of upside. They can easily afford to let him take his time in developing into a useful member of our team or until such time as he has some trade value.

He has zero worth because he is a project prospect...needs work, but has the potential to be good.

Guys like these get developped within organisations over several year.

Let's face it with all the Ds we have as far as prospects we could have let this one go. I mean not picking Giroulx when the Flyers picked him just after us has to be some kind of joke.

Now, but when the pick was made, good D prospects was something lacking in the organization, while skilled forwards was not.

Exactly. Schultz is a solid young proven NHL defenseman. How the heck do they justify trading him for some kind of project prospect and a relatively meaningless draft pick? It's a total non-starter from a Wild pov, and would be a total steal for the Habs if it wasn't.

You thought correct. Fischer and gritty don't belong in the same sentence. Although he has improved his physical game, it's gone from none to some. He's actually good along the boards but in the crease is where he struggles. I hope that when he fills out his frame, he adds a good deal of strength, as imo as somone that used to work in a gym, getting a lot stronger gives you confidence (or so it did for me) so the hope would be that if he gets bigger and stronger, it will help him in the crease, move forwards and be less fun to play against, although I really don't think the physical brand of hockey will ever be a big part of Fischer's game. Imo for Fischer his best asset is his puck moving and smart defensive zone play.
