Really would not hold my breath. Remember the habs and oilers deal that woke him up in the middle of the night and was suppose to happen really soon? What happened to that? I don`t want us trading any goalie right now. They`re the only thing right with this team.

I don`t know who edmonton has that would fit those two molds you described. I don`t think they have a big center in their team right now or in their system. As for young top4, they have guys like Gilbert and Grebeshkov. Gilbert is the closest to the Phaneuf mold offensively.

And I wouldn't move either. Basically, we have nothing really valuable to give that I would want to part with so I hope we don't make any trades just to shake things up like Calgary is doing. If we can get a guy like Jack Johnson, I seriously hope it doesn't damage our future.

According to Pierre McGuire on the Team 1200 (Ottawa) a couple of days ago, Mueller is having issues with even wanting to play hockey anymore (burnt out), which is why Phoenix is trying to unload him.

I wouldnt want to go anywhere near that problem.

But in hindsight you could probably get him for nothing; and playing in front 21,000 fans every night might inspire him to get him playing to his potential again.

I think that return is awful. Bob would be castrated on the public place for taking an offer like that. Price alone is worth Brule & Edmonton's first.

I disagree, I'm all for trading Price, not for just a 1st, and Brule is just a throw-in we don't need.

Not that I'm looking to trade Price. But in fairness, the Oiler's 1st could end up being a 1st overall pick. That IMO would be hard to say no too.

Seriously though. He just turned 23, already has over 200 NHL games under his belt, and is already posting an over 0.5 PPG season on the worst team in the league. Don't think he's the type of player Montreal should target, necessarily, but definitely not a "throw in".

Do you think you could get a goalie of Price's caliber with that first? If not than I don't think it's worth it, regardless of what kind of first it is.

And we need him because??? We have many similar players on the roster right now. I don't see what Brule brings to the team without actually dumping one of the similar player and Sergei isn't the same kind of player at all. When AK & Cama comes back you play Brule on the third line with Lapierre, seriously?

No, which is why I would hesitate making the move. It does give us a good chance to grab a potential star forward/defenseman though. Which is why for me, it wouldn't be an easy decision.

i think i would do this. i wonder if the oilers would though. i mean, is price worth hall fowler or seguin? i dont know if this could even get done without brule.

Edmonton's first is the biggest prize in the NHL right now, no question. If we can get that pick in any package deal, including Halak or Price, I think we would be foolish not to pull the trigger. We end up with a top goalie (Price or Halak) and a future star forward. The only way to pry that pick loose is with Price, there's no doubt about that.

Why do we have to trade Price or our first?

We could either move for a solid Center like Jordan Staal or Jeff Carter at the expense of Plekanec+ or we could dump off Hamrlik/Spacek for some cap space or we could get some solid bangers for the 3rd/4th line players like Moreau and Artuykhin.

Why would the Oilers give up the 1st. Unless you've got Vincent Lecavalier, there is no way that Oilers would be stupid enough to give up their first pick.

Just so you guys know ... There is a transcript on TSN with Dreger where he says there is nothing going on in Montreal now in terms of trades and that GMs around the NHL are very curious about what Gainey will do with the Habs at trade deadline day, specifically with Plekanec.

Considering where we are in the standings that makes a lot more sense

But this the Eklund thread, you are not allowed to make sense in here and specially using sources other than Eklund. jk

Any reason you replied to my post? Because it has nothing to do with anything I said.

We're talking about the first or second overall here... I'd pull the trigger in a microsecond if I were Bob.

Can Hall or Seguin stop pucks in the net?

I don't think it matters whether it's 1st or 2nd overall. If this trade means giving up assets we can't possibly replace then I don't think Gainey should pull that trigger, unless he gets a decent backup goalie in return or if there's another move for a goalie in the works. Otherwise we're down to Halak + Desjardins in nets. That means we are tanking and couldn't care less about 1st or 2nd overall since we'd get a pretty good pick to begin with.

Well, that's an educated assessment. What if trading Price brings in a player we couldn't otherwise acquire? Hopefully you see that it works both ways (meaning swapping a player you don't think we can replace for a player I don't think we could otherwise acquire, or vice versa).

Anyway, I don't think Gainey should try to trade Price (or Halak), and we already have at least 3 threads talking about this point anyways. This thread is already developing as we all knew it would, with very little discussion of actual Eklund rumours.
