I would do this.. so bad trade.
I don't think it's a terrible trade, but it seems like a trade that a contending team would make. This isn't that team - IMO, this organization doesn't seem to know that this team just isn't built to go deep in the playoffs, and that's too bad.

If you enter the draft with less picks, you're less likely to get good players out of that draft. That's pretty simple. If we're giving up a few more picks without getting any back until the 2011 draft, we could very well have nothing more than some fringe NHLers out of those 2 drafts. Not what's good for long-term success.
I'll just counter quickly we'll likely be getting a few assets for one of Hammer/ Spacek because there is no way we let Pleks walk for nothing, we need Cap space bad and Spacek/ Hammer are writing there tickets out of here right now because we can probably rely on subban making the jump next year. With Gill/Gorges/OByrne/Markov all locked up and Spacek/Hammer possibilities to go Subban could make the jump very easily and could start in a very limited role on the 3rd pairing if need be

But the big question is what number will he wear? I know all have been waiting for this answer, because it is such huge news.
Are you ready?

Are you really ready?

Here's the answer:

How the heck is Picard a bust?

He's a former third round pick.

He's 24 years old.

He has 184 NHL games under his belt already.

He has 15 points in 45 games this season. He's averaging roughly 19 minutes of ice time a game (it's not like he's getting really low No. 6 D numbers).

That does not add up to "a bust". Not even remotely close.

Ottawa gave up two pretty good assets in order to get Cullen. They gave up significantly more to get Cullen than what we gave up for Moore.


To be frank, I feel vindicated over my earlier defenses of the Moore deal.


NHL GMs simply do not value 2nd round picks as highly as a lot of people on these boards do, and these two most recent NHL trades pretty much proves it. Now, you can say that the NHL GMs are all crazy for thinking that way about 2nd round picks, but signaling out Gauthier is silly to me. He's not approaching 2nd round picks much differently than other NHL GMs are.


Overpriced but talented quality players are more tradeable than many people think they are (i.e. Gomez, Blake, Kotalik, Oduya, etc...).

And picks after the 1st round simply aren't as valued as highly as they are by most people here.

The key is that Ottawa has played 60 games and he's played in 45 of those. He's been a healthy scratch lately and deemed expendable.

Habs got a 4th rounder for a guy they would have lost on waivers (Chipchura)
so I feel REALLY good about getting a good faceoff man, good shudown man (two things we lacked... unless you want to continue playing Gomez 26 minutes and ask him to shut down the opposition instead of keeping him fresh and asking him to generate offense.) for "only" a 2nd round pick in 2011. That's in two drafts. We have a lot of time to get back a 2nd round pick.

He does have a point, and I'm not telling him or anyone else that they have to like this deal. I'm not even sure if 100% like this deal myself. I just feel it's way too early to be jumping to conclusions.

Okay people should start making the difference between talking about it, disagreeing with the move and TOTALLY FREAKING OUT BECAUSE OF IT.

I'm personnally not implying that we're a worst team, that this trade will definately set the Habs back by 10 years and so on.....still, Moore was just not on my wish list and I believe in top picks in a draft to build a team. Yes 2011 looks right now as a weak one.

Though as far as the analysis of a draft year, I don't know how accurate that is, but I found that on the net as far as 1999....Knowing how it turned out, not sure we can actually, say how a 2nd round pick was not needed in 2011.

Quote:
The 1999 NHL Entry Draft was held on June 26 at the FleetCenter in Boston, Massachusetts. According to Sports Illustrated and other sports news agencies, at the time the 1999 draft was considered one of the deepest in talent in years, headed by Patrik Stefan and the Sedin twins.[citation needed] However, the overall productivity and impact in the NHL has proved considerably lower compared to neighbouring drafts.[citation needed] The draft's best players include Buffalo's Ryan Miller who was selected in the fifth round, as well as Henrik Zetterberg who was selected 210th overall (eighth round). Zetterberg is the lowest NHL Draft pick to win the Conn Smythe Trophy.[1]

I think you know it's useless to tell people not to jump to conclusions around here.

I don't mind this deal, it adds a little more depth and we need that. Obviously, if that's the only move done this year though, I have to wonder just how important it's actually going to be.
A lot of people underestimate our team though.

Plek-Gomez-Gionta-Cammy-A.Kost-S.Kost-Pouliot, seriously, if we can remain healthy we have a very good one-two punch to hopefully go into POs with. What's important, is to have a solid 3rd and 4th line that will be able to furfill their roles.

If our goalies perform as well as they have so far this year, I think we could surprise some teams going down the stretch and into the POs.
If Martin could adapt his system to his players, I'm happy with our team. Every time we play a more offensively aggressive game, we perform much better.

We have the ingredients of a good team, we just need to stay healthy and execute the proper system.

First mistake by Gauthier for sure. Moore is a guy you sign for nothing in the summer.

Why wasnt a search done for a GM ?

The biggest issue facing us is drafting 5-10 overall and then the Price or Halak trade
before the deadline. I had every confidence Gainey would screw that up like the
disastrous Gomez deal. I am wondering now about Gauthier.

This GM likely just gave up 35-40 overall pick in 2011 for an add-on cut of the Maple Leafs. Leafs GM acquires a horse like Phaneuf while we get their cuts for 2nd rounders. Cripes !

As an aside, was at the game on Saturday against Pittsburgh. Halak started, big cheers. They announced Price dressed as backup, entire building booed him.
They hate him in Montreal.

This isn't the summer so you can't go out and sign Moore, he belonged to Florida...and he wasn't fixing our need for a 3rd line center on their team.

For all the negative talk on here about the Gomez deal, he's been a very good player for us this year. We are stronger at center than last year with Gomez and a rejuvenated Pleks, adding Moore could allow those 2 to play more exclusively in offensive situations.

Phaneuf does play like a horse, the only problem is hockey is played by humans and horses have very poor decision making on ice

It looks like Gauthier is prepping the team for a shot at the playoffs. To help accomplish this, we needed to strengthen our bottom 6. Now Moore probably wouldn't have been my first choice. But the bottom line is, our bottom 6 is stronger after this trade, than it was before.

He acn kill penalities and get a lot of taht off Plekanec's plate, freeing him up for a more offensive role. Same for key faceoffs, he can take some stress off Gomez and Pleks there also. Metro is not big enough or good enough defensively to play that role.

Ottawa 2010 2nd round + Picard is 2 times better than our 2011 2nd round...

Moore >>> Maxwell => our bottom 6 is better.

In one day Gauthier improved two areas that most posters in here consider as our main woes in 2009-10:

(1) A lack of puck moving D – bonus: he is right handed! PK Subban up... though it's probably just a precautionary (Markov and Gorges) measure.

(2) Poor contribution of our lines 3 and 4. Moore is a great FO man and he will be able to shoulder the workload on PK: we don't want to overuse Plekanec – almost 5 minutes of PK duties against WAS and one of the busiest (8th) forwards in the league in terms of PK TOI:



According to ckac.com, Martin is contemplating the following 3rd line:

Travis Moen - Dominic Moore - Maxim Lapierre

Imo it could be a very solid and reliable 3rd line.


Matt Cullen is worth Alexandre Picard and a second-round draft pick in 2010 so I am not sure if a second round pick in 2011 is too steep for Moore.

One thing is sure: Moore >>> Maxwell and we are, right now, in the midst of a tight playoffs race.

THIS

I think it comes down to psychological issues for a lot of fans.

Since a lot of the more moronic and pathetic fans tend to be losers who live vicariously through the team, they want the team to reflect their desperate fantasies. I'm sure a lot of these people are also 6/49 players, and to them the draft parallels their lottery playing, where every draft pick represents a chance to escape their miserable situation, pick the next Zetterberg in the 7th round. This completely in willful ignorance of the actual odds of finding decent NHLers, let alone allstars deep in the draft (even past the 1st round). NHL GMs know the actual value of draft picks, fans (especially HF internet fanatics) add a large emotional premium to this value.

Hopefully the guys who went all jihad yesterday have the humility to cram it for a while. I doubt it tho, they'll probably just head to the nearest halak vs price thread.

I don't believe in cherry picking great players from the 2nd round as I don't think its an accurate portrayal of what you'll get. So let's take a look at Montreal's 2nd rounders from 2007-2000

07- Subban (too soon to say)
06- Maxwell, Carle (too soon to say)
05- Latendresse (good player)
04 - none (Yemelin in 3rd round)
03- Lapierre, Urquhart (1 good player, 1 bust)
02- Linhart (bust)
01- Milroy (bust)
00- none

Our drafting is much better than most teams. Most of the guys up there are good players or are prospects who could be good. I don't think a few months (or a few years for that matter) of Dominic Moore is worth this kind of player.

I don't think it's much stronger, if at all. Moore is a marginal player who's been on waivers once already in his career. And he's 29, its not like there's some kind of unfulfilled promise here.

And if our plan is to try for short term gains via a rental player, why not go after somebody better. There's got to be a better rental player available for a 2nd round pick.

Moore isn't really great defensively either. He's a hardworking scrub. He's not Carbo or Skrudland.

Go look at the list that I provided that shows what our typical 2nd round picks look like. We are well above average in this area and when we trade away picks we mitigate the one area of strength that we do have over other teams.

We don't have to wait until that 2nd round player is drafted and retires to make a value judgement on this.

Based on what we know about Moore and the value that we've gotten out of 2nd round picks in the past, this is a bad trade.

No, it's not the end of the world if it's just an isolated move. My worry is that it's the start of a trend because really... this move didn't make a whole lot of sense for us.

2011 is supposed to be a crappy draft. Maybe Gauthier doesn't believe it will be like a typical year.

Maybe. I hadn't heard that it was crappy though. Are we looking at another 1996?

Some of the things Moore brings:

- Excellent on faceoffs, winning 55.8%
- Can play both center and wing
- Lots of energy
- Excellent skater
- very decent defensively
- can contribute some secondary scoring
- only 7 giveaways and 27 takeaways this year
- can be used to kill penalties

There have a number of reports stating that it's a very weak draft. Look for a post in the original Moore thread... Someone put some quotes in there.

I have a feeling we'll get some picks back at the deadline. I think either Metropolit or Lapierre will be traded.

I hope the second rounders are as bad as the 1999 draft(the worst in a while).

29. Michal Sivek - Washington Capitals
30. Luke Sellars - Atlanta Thrashers
31. Charlie Stephens - Washington Capitals
32. Michael Ryan - Dallas Stars
33. Jonas Andersson - Nashville Predators
34. Ross Lupaschuk - Washington Capitals
35. Milan Bartovic - Buffalo Sabres
36. Alexei Semenov - Edmonton Oilers
37. Nolan Yonkman - Washington Capitals

I hate this trade. Even though we are technically in 6th place, we really are in 9th place and we shouldn't be giving up assets at this point imo. To me, the trade screams I want to put my stamp on the team and make a push for the playoffs so I don't look like a failure in my first year.

However this year has been a write off largely due to injuries. It was also a bonding / chemistry year imo. We have a new core and I don't expect them to do miracles in year 1, but I love how this team has persevered through the injuries and find a way to stay in the hunt.

I hate giving up assets for a bottom 6 player when all year long, we complained about needing a top 6 player. And for just a little more than the 2nd round pic that we gave up, we could have had a top 6 player in Ponikarovsky.

This is kind of like if instead of putting Higgins into Gomez trade, we put a 2nd rounder instead...

Except this version of Higgins is a good centreman, and maybe not a party animal.

if this guy works out as a 3rd line centre..maybe we could get him for 1 million next year and let Metro go.

As much as I like Metro, the 3rd line has not been very effective, and he is not a great centre (his big strength is stick skills around net).
