Since Pouliot has been set on a line with Darche and Halpern, there is clearly a need for a top-6 winger. Gomez and Gionta need a winger. Pyatt, Moen and Lapierre are not the anwser. Martin dosen't seem to incline to play Eller there either.
So would a call-up be the solution? The O'Byrne trade opens up that possibility. Could this be a chance for Pacioretty, Palushaj, White or Desharnais to be called-up?
Personnaly, I think it would be a good time to try out Pacioretty on one of the top-2 lines. If not, maybe Palushaj.
Obyrne should have been packaged ie : with picks, rights of ramo and prospects like desharnais and weber (the ones doing well the organisation seems to snub) ... pretty sure the return would have been better than grabbing satan, even for nothing. you haven't given up anything if you never intended to play weber and desharnais in montreal like it seems to be the case.
