EKLUND: Habs interested in STAR player...

According to EKLUND the Habs are interested in a STAR forward and up and coming prospect, which would cost Montreal one of their top 2 Dmen in Markov or Komisarek.

If such a deal happens the Habs are then going to look at getting Kaberle or Morris....unless Niedermeyer is available which Montreal has contacted about as well in the rumor.

I'm guessing it is for Brad Richards, hence the STAR forward. But who is the prospect?

If anything this is opening Salary for a trade for the Stars, maybe Avery will be traded directly to the Rags for one of their Dmen or Gomez?

Who knows, maybe thats why Montreal gets a good prospect in return as well???

Don't shoot the messenger, lets have fun with this and assume the players and possible out comes.

If the Stars trade Richards, it's going to be for Markov, not for an impending UFA like Komisarek.

lol he's now simply resorting to "MTL interested in a star player".

Soon it'll be "MTL interested in an NHL player on an NHL team".

I think Eklund is secretly among us and he actually makes fun of himself like we do. Montreal wouldn't trade Markov. Besides we don't need a crazy expensive STAR center thats gonna cost us McDonagh, Pacioretty, Subban, our top defensemen, a couple of firsts, both the Kostitsyns or anything like that.

Come to think of it. Eklund probably means Habs are interested in a player from the STARs.

Richards+Niskanen to Habs (E0)

if it's gonna take markov to get Richards, then you might as well trade him to TB and get Vinny.

If we do trade Markov for a forward, then it better be more than Richards... Markov >>>> Richards. In fact, we have our Richards equivalent in Koivu, the guy is not what we need.

Markov is worth a lot more than Richards

since we are terrible lately on the back end, it makes sense to trade one of our top 3 d.

The mere fact that he thinks this would start with Markov or Komisarek should tip one off to the fact that this is complete fabrication.

Exactly.

Anyone can throw out the numerous rumours he does per day and land the odd one right.

I am a firm believer of trading players to help your team bit by bit, however Trading Major Players for other Major players and making a cup run? Well I don't see how butchering your team would help you out? It reminds me of Tampa Bay when they were rebuilding in the offseason by signing UFA after UFA. I would be happy if we got a few stars but I wouldn't be convinced that our 3-4 NEW star players are going to carry us to victory.

Until they get one, the Habs will always be interested in a STAR player....Eklund might as well leave that as a permanent headline.

Yes, because trading away our best d-man, who is also one of the best in the league makes a lot of sense...
