To the best of my understanding, an asset signed at a reasonable rate has a higher potential return in a trade than simply the rights to a player at an unknown rate.
Why would Team X trading for him not be able to sign him to the same contract as the Habs? I can't recall a RFA being signed and traded right away, it's usually the other way around.

Wasn't he the Hamilton guy that went to play for the KHL?

I didn't see anything on capgeek yet, so I'll wait to see if he is indeed signed to a one way, I'd be very suprised and confused if that's the case.

I guess I'd flip it around and ask why a team would give up asset(s) (picks or players) without knowing how much it's going to cost to sign a player? It's not like any other team can approach an RFA for negotiations; all they can do is make an offer sheet (and likely ruffle feathers in the process). Once a player is signed, his "value" or "worth" is defined, and it's much easier for any interested team to take that and assess what they're willing to give up in return, and they're not left with the uncertainty of how their own negotiations will go afterwards. And, of course, signing him ensures retention of that asset in the mean time.

It's not exactly rocket science, but I'm not saying it points to him being traded, either. It just gives PG more flexibility in his options if that's the road he decides to take. Besides, you'll likely never see anyone willing to give up assets for rights to a bottom-tier player; you only see that kind of thing when things like negotiation rights to players like Sundin are involved.

I was thinking of the exact same line. At the moment, Pouliot might be considered 3rd line material but other than size, Trotter might be a better fit there.

I would think Pouls would skate circles around Trotter.

Maybe you are right, Pouls has potential...

However, at present Trotter has a contract with us and Pouls does not, along with the cloud of uncertainty of not returning enveloping the mtl fanbase

I haven't seen anywhere that shows we have signed Trotter.

Yet, how's that translation of the Dynamo site not reliable? I mean he is a playoff macho isn't he?

Yeah I don't understand why his KHL club's website isn't more reliable than Hindle's twitter.

Edit: cue the "in Soviet Russian" jokes

Trotter definately is leaving Dinamo for NA. He had clause in his two-year deal, that allowed him to leave if he gets offered one-way deal from NHL team. Official site of Dinamo states, that Trotter asked for a permission to leave and club granted it even though they could of refused as the Habs contract offer is two-way.

I don't know who Steven Hindle is, but he probably doesn't know anything about this signing. How can Trotter use NHL as a negotiating tool, when he was under written contract for another year?
