Maybe all the black players in the league can be moved to the southern states. . .
I don't know about shipping the black players down south, but mabey we can ship all the hyper sensitive posters down there. I feel like I'm on the Calgary boards.

I think they demand either Gagner or maybe Penner.

Nevertheless, some teams do play favorites. I don't know if you noticed, but Sutter has a thing for players from Alberta and Saskatchewan - hell, at one point a few years ago the Flames had 7-8 players from Edmonton alone.

NJ and NYR have long had an unusually high number of Americans on their teams. And the Habs have made no secret that they have a soft spot for FC players. This stuff does happen. I think it would kind of naive to say it doesn't.

Subban? He is as valuable to us as Eberle is to you, NOT A CHANCE.

JDD has next to zero value for us, O'sullivan has next to zero value to anyone and cogliano is another small forward that we have a dozen of. If we are taking Penner you are taking a big contract back simple as that.

To Edm
Price

To Montreal
Smid
Edm 2nd 2011

or

To Edm
Price
Spacek

To Montreal
Penner

You're getting closer. You're not getting Subban too though. I'm not sure how much they value Pacioretty.

You would be forced to take a bad contract back too. Hamrlik maybe? Taking back Laraque as well might get you closer too, since I'm sure MTL plans on buying him out this summer.

Once again though, the whole proposal is moot because: Steve <3 Nikolai.

I'd go for Halak as we could get him for less, I really think he is the better goalie of the two.

I think we'll need a defencemen that is ready to step in immiadentley in return for Smid. Spacek is to soft in his own end I think.

How'bout:

To EDM:
Price
Gill
2010 3rd Rounder

To MON:
Smid
O'Sullivan
2011 2nd Rounder

Thoughts?

I find it hard to believe Smid and a 2nd is enough.

Yeah, francophone garbage is STLL garbage even to Montreal fans/management... They love and know their hockey more than their language and politics, don't forget that...

Subban is Montreal's Eberle. I don't think he's going anywhere unless its in a package for the first overall.

Would love to get Price, but there's 28 other teams that probably would, too. As much as he's struggled, and as much strain as there seems to be between him and MTL fans/media, he's still a very valuable commodity, and the Habs aren't moving him unless its for a big time deal.

Also, I doubt Montreal would have much interest in Cogliano. Their team is almost as small as our's. . .they don't need another smurf anymore than we do.

I think Smid and Penner would be a starting point for Price? Maybe some ancilliary picks/contract dumps would have to be worked out, as well.

I know we got Bulin but I think a tandem of Bulin and Price would be good.

The same as when they aquired Benoit Poulit, it was like they have gotten Wayne Gretzky himself or that they always want to have Vincént Lecávaliér from Tampa. Believe me I really have no racism in me god d***. It is like kicking my teeth in when you say that..
Nope it's true you are a racist

I don't necessarily disagree with that, but all you have to do is listen to Tambo to see that he thinks the Oilers are solid in net with Khabby as the starter and JDD/JD as the backup. I have no idea why he thinks this, but he does.

I don't get banned, I'm charming like a squirrel, you sir need to learn to relax and take a joke.

What does MF mean?

I don't see us pursuing Price
