I like this..

Ryan Russell won't amount to anything so I'd rather get a 4th liner

Talent Analysis

Blunden has the size that scouts drool over and he isn’t shy about using his frame to bang and crash in the corners. He hasn’t shown the hands yet to be a big scorer, but he may be a late bloomer in that regard and as long as he is willing to go hard to the net and play in the trenches he will get his share of points.

Blunden's not a fighter per say...he can be a physical 4th liner, alot like Ryan White but bigger.

I don't understand habs fans sometimes...if a player is big, he's got to be able to fight like Chris Nilan, or else he's useless.

I couldn't careless less about fighting ability...IMO, fighting is on the verge of being abolished (or sanctionable at the very least) anyways

I have a soft spot for Kovalev and I would not mind a 3rd line of AK46-Eller-Kovalev. Right now there's no third player on that line who fits, and Kovalev is still a 40 point forward with a good balance of goals and assists.

Last year he had 16 goals and 34 points in 74 games, playing a reduced role. He would be a good complement to the third line, and he could fit in on the 2nd line for 20 games or 30 games once the inevitable multiple simultaneous injuries happen.

Right now, if there's one injury, the third line becomes Moen-Eller-Darche, this will be damaging to Eller's development. Since injuries tend to come in groups, Eller is probably going to play games with Moen, Darche, etc regardless of whether or not we sign Kovalev, but at least he'll play fewer such games.

Kovalev is garbage...he can't skate anymore, is predictable and is only effective in space. Solely as a PP guy, he'll get his points, but otherwise he's completely useless at even strength.

He rarely shoots anymore because it takes him forever to get his shot off.

Let it go Habs fans...

My problem with Blunden, purely from junior many years ago, was more that he lacked the feu-de-belly thing that a good banger needs. He's more like Moen that way, IMHO. Moen is pretty no-nonsense and consistent, but doesn't go nuts. Blunden is like that, save maybe lacking the consistency. Or was. Or that was my past impression of him, anyway, for whatever it is worth. No idea how or if he has evolved since.

White has the feu-de-belly AFAIC.

Yeah, agreed...but I think injuries have kind of derailed his pro career and he's had trouble finding his niche.

At least in Montreal, he'll be able to stand out a bit more because the Habs have so few players in the organization who plays a robust style.

Really, he could easily win a job at camp if he shows up with the right attitude.

Did they actually call the trade, or did they say something like "something may happen soon or possibly it might not happen"?
