Pierre Macguire - Habs heavily pursuing a forward in the Western Conference

According to Pierre's daily set on the TEAM 1200 this morning he said that Montreal is trying to move up in the draft, but claims the asking price for a top 5 pick would be Komisarek.

As well Pierre claims that Montreal is heavily pursuing a forward in the Western Conference but he cant say who it is due a confidentiality agreement he has with his source.

Let the speculation begin as to who the forward is and the old Marleau to Montreal rumour to start up again.

I wouldn't give Komisarek away, even if we could replace him by Luke Schenn, who I think will become the upgrade version of Mike.

As for the forward in West, I have no idea...there's so many! If we do trade for someone, we will probably lose our first round pick, and it would be way less exiting to watch the draft on Friday, but oh well...haha

The only way I would move Komisarek is if Gainey thinks he cannot get him resigned. If it does go down hopefully, a three team blockbluster type deal which would bring us Marleau and a top 5 pick. Atlanta may be willing to move their pick if Filatov goes to LA(just my speculation). Heard they are looking for immediate help. Doughty or Bogosian may be able to play next season and could be better than Komi in a few seasons

I wouldn't trade Higgins straight up for Marleau...for what he makes(over 6 mil) and his production, you can get a guy on the UFA market and keep Halak Higgins and the pick.

Habs cannot trade Komi if they are serious about going to the promised land next season. Moving up in the draft will not produce an impact in the coming season, and trading Komi+ for Marleau will not happen. SJ made their choice when they fired Wilson, they're keeping Marleau.

.....and that is followed by Gainey saying thank you and hanging up the phone.

I'm wondering if Bob is after Havlat.

Marleau, Gaborik are also potential targets

Trading Komisarek really doesn't make any sense and I'd assume Gainey feels that way. It does scare me a little that he is a UFA after next season but I really want Gainey to lock him up long term (6-7 years). IMO Komisarek is our future captain once Saku retires.

As for Western Conference forwards...Gaborik is definitely #1 on my list but he would be very expensive in a trade (and rightfully so).

He has to be, he's the perfect captain material.

I'm wondering if Rights to Ryder+Halak+2nd is superior to Ryder+Halak and a 2nd...

Marleau!!!! Let's start a thread about him too!

Are there many Western teams having problems keeping impact players to stay under the cap?

So let's make a list of Centers that could be interesting to get that may be available in the west:

LA: Cammaleri
SJ: Marleau
EDM: Stoll, Hemsky
COL: Sakic/Forsberg ??
CAL: Langkow ?

these are the Centers i can think of that could be available

now a forward...that's a different story

but as we all know, Gainey has the ability to make moves none of us preudict and always surprise us. But in the end, turn out to be fairly good for the team in the long run.

And as usual, if it happens, it'll be totally out of left field.

as for the Komisarek thing (v. Schenn I guess), in french, we have a saying: Un tiens vaut mieux que deux tu l'auras.

Could be Frolov too. We all jump on big names like Marleau but Macquire could be misleading us a little also. Maybe to add goals lost if Higgins is traded to move up in top 5. Sounds more like it.

Komisarek is not worth a top 10 pick if he is not already signed to a reasonable long-term deal. Guys like Foote, Smith, Hatcher, all get these giant contracts when they've had a good season or two, but they rarely are able to maintain that type of game and the contracts end up being burdens. Teams in the top 10 should hold onto their picks and have some time to buoild loyalty with their players. Its really unfortunate that the free agency age is as low as 27 because it means that a guy like Komisarek can end up a free agent when he is finally paying dividends to the team that drafted and developed him.
