Heatley to Montreal (Should we be interested?)

Think about it.

We have 4,654,024 cap space (http://www.thehockeygm.com/mtl.html)

Trade Plecks (2.75mill), a prospect (D'Agostini, Maxwell or Chipchura) and a 1st round draft...

you can even throw in Metropolitt and save 1 Mil for a free agent D (Bouillon maybe?)


Ottawa would be getting a hell of a deal... Montreal would be a contender...

There are two reasons this doesnt work
1 - Ottawa's a divisional rival. Trading us their star isn't an option
2- we have much less cap tha that (around 2 million)

You think Pleks, (D'ago, maxwell or Chips), a first and a throw in waiver pick up in Metro is a "hell of a deal" for one of the best snipers in all of hockey? Ottawa would be insane to make that deal to a division rival.

Trades of that calibre within the division are almost impossible to make.

Would Ottawa do it? No. Would I want Heatley? Yes. No question about it.

Heatley-Gomez-Gionta
Andrei-Cam-Latendresse
Sergei-Lapierre-Moen
Stewart-Chipchura-Laraque

No **** I'd want him. It ain't gonna happen though so this discussion is moot.

Mind you, if lang is offered a tryout and makes the team, cam can stay wing too and the line-up is even more insane but like I said, it's fantasy at this point. We'd have to overpay more than others because we are a division rival.

Come on a trade for Heatley would probably have to be something like Andrei Kostitsyn, Sergei Kostitsyn, Tomas Plekanec and then something else with no cap hit (1st round pick, PK Subban, Webber, etc).

How about Heatley for a 1st round pick + The Olympic Stadium ? It would fit well in Ottawa and it's not like we still need it.

Why do you guys even want Heatley?

Consider defense, or leadership in the locker room, etc...it's pretty clear Dany Heatley has an issue with playing defense in Ottawa...how would he even work under a D-heavy system like Martin's?

You guys really dig dekes and finesse over everything else...

Not going to argue that its a fair deal (its obviously not, the sens get ripped). But what do you expect to get for Heatley? Teams aren't exactly lining up making offers for the guy.

Sure he's a 40-50 goal scorer in his prime. But he's putting the sens in a tough situation by demanding a trade.

The eventual return for Heatley is going to be A LOT less then what Sens fans expect (or think) they should get. I guarantee it. You better get used to the idea of a package made up of players like Plekanec and average-prospects for Heatley (Maybe it will be a bit better then the proposed trade, but its not far off).

If I'm wrong, I'm wrong. But I doubt it. So I think you are the one that needs to "keep dreaming"

It's already been talked about but we just don't have the cap space first off, Ottawa won't trade there superstar to a team in the same conference let alone the same division. The package we'd have to give something like A Kostitsyn, Subban, etc etc may do nothing more than handcuff us in the future. Think of the lightning and the big contracts given to there top 3...because of Lecavalier, StLouis, Richards they lost there number 1 goalie and defenseman to the numbers game.

Because he is one of the best goal scorers in the game.

I understand everyone else's critique of my proposal. But yours is just weird, angry and confusing.

There's nothing wrong with the title of this thread. The only thing I do see that is wrong is the amount of salary cap we have left. I was under the impression that we had just over 2 million left.
