If you decide to open a new thread to discuss Eklund rumours, it will be closed or deleted. We are not going to merge a bunch of threads into this one.

We are also going to keep this thread as a non-sticky for now. If it becomes a hassle, we will change it in the future.


Here are some guidelines.

1. Check to see if the rumour has already been posted in this thread. This will help cut down on rumours being posted several different times.
2. Do not quote the whole rumour.
3. Provide a link.


If you don't like Eklund, ignore this thread or stay out of it. Any negative comments towards Eklund will result in you receiving a warning or infraction.

How about...

To MTL:
Bernier + Stoll

To LAK:
Price + ** mid pick or prospect (Maxwell) }

Which would give us:

Eller - Gomez - Gionta
Cammalleri - Plekanec - AK
Pouliot - Stoll - Boyd
Moen - Pyatt - Lapierre
Darche - White

Stoll is a RH center that plays physical.

Still, is Bernier ready for the big show? Are that confident in Auld?

I like it.

Then they can call me up if they need a goalie. I'll give it a shout. I usually play forward in my beer league but I've filled in between the pipes 2-3 times.

I could see a Price/Niemi trade making sense for both sides, assuming Chicago is willing to throw in a top prospect to make it work. I think Price's attitude and style will fit much better in Chicago than it ever will in Montreal. Sr. Bowman seems to really believe in the kid so that has to help if there are any trade talks between the two sides.

If Niemi is going to cost Chicago too much coin it could be one of their better options if Montreal is interested.


Niemi is an ugly goalie, poor rebound control and not technically sound. He is big, that is it.

At least Price is big, young and skilled.

No thanks to Niemi.

For 1 of the few times, I sure hope none of these trade rumors involving Price are true... I wanna keep him badly in Montreal...This guy is gonna give us great hockey for years to come.

I would take Niemi . And i am sure that Price is a good goalie its just that he hasnt proven that he can handle the pressure of playing in MTL . But then again if he can handle the pressure of being number 1 in Montreal and perform he will be a much better goalie then Niemi . Because the only reason he was good is because of his great defense .

Eklund for Niemi? really? you guys are buying this bs? The only way Price is leaving is if we get a top goalie back, and a top prospect back. No way this happens. And if its not a top prospect then its a top 6 forward capable of 70-80 points.

Completely agree. Niemi is a rebound machine and has less upside than Price imo. I don't care for the opinion that he got the Hawks to the Cup, Leighton got the Flyers to the finals too but noone thinks he's the 2nd coming. Really good teams don't need lights out goaltending to win. Add to that, he'll also be more expensive and you start to wonder why on earth this deal makes any sense!?

Matts Sundin to Montreal e5


I believe a deal could get done between Montreal and another team but I don't think the deal would includ price. I do beleive the reason we didnt announced Price's signature yet is because he's the last 1 to get signed in our RFA and that Gauthier wants to keep room in case a deal or a signature happens to then sign Price depending on how much money I have left. Something in the lines of either a 3-4 year deal at 3-3.2M/per or a 1-2 year deal at 2.5/per depending on the cap space left. If I was in Gauthiers place thats how I'd manage that. Price is not going anywhere, he's not on arbitration nor a UFA and we're still in July(well for 2 days at least hehe)

The other thing that makes me believe won't go anywhere is past 2 years we had the Halak/Price debate. You traded away 1 of them. Logic is you keep the other 1.

Many RFAs are not signed yet. It's a total normal situation. Y rush a contract signing when you know that at the end of the day something will come to agreement between both parties.

I wouldn't want Niemi. He'll be the next Huet or Thomas.

Everyone who has been discussing a trade involving Price has wanted both a goalie and a top prospect coming back the other way.

I wouldn't trade Price straight up for any of the goalies mentioned but if the other side is willing to throw in something decent, I'm willing to consider it. Even Eklund is claiming the rumours he's been hearing have us getting both a goalie and a top 6 forward.

Chicago and Philly didnt make the Finals because of their goalies, but because of their depth and size

Which explains why goalies don't have much trade value nowadays

*Revised*:To add to the speculation and rumors about the possibility of trading Carey Price, how does this trade sound for both teams?

to Los Angeles Kings: Carey Price(3.5m?), Andrei Kostitsyn(3.25m), Roman Hamrlik(5.5m), Max Pacioretty(.875m) ~ 13.125m
to Montreal Canadiens: Jonathan Bernier(.843m), Jack Johnson(1.425m), Wayne Simmonds(.822m), Ryan Smyth(6.25m) ~9.34m

I'd seriously consider it.

Oh no doubt lol I mean that deal would be pretty epic, A 1st line winger, potential top pairing Dman, and a starting 1B goalie I'd say for A franchise Goalie, a streaky 30 goal russian, and a prospect. I'd be shocked if that ever happened. LA would be stupid to offer that up. Especially when they have Bernier already.

Montreal would make that deal so fast, no doubt but... LA just sits there with their face... inside their palm. They get fleeced, and badly too.

From what I read from Bowman, he doesn't seem intent on trading Niemi in those 48 hours.

Anyway, if he ever wanted to take a lick at getting Price and including Niemi in a trade, I'd tell him it's Pleks for Toews added or he can go talk to some other team. And I don't think that Bowman in his right mind would ever do that trade. Anything else, I wouldn't be interested.

Patrick Sharp really interests me, I think he would be a great fit for the team the way it is built.
