The funny part is Alzner's rights seem to be the center piece.

I'd definately do it with Alzner coming back.

P.S. I just don't see the Caps doing that, you'd think they'd ask for Tinordi and not a redundant piece like Weber.

The only negative I see is we'd probably have to move Gorges to be able to sign Alzner.

Nope, Semin was, by far, the best Caps player in that series.

Anyone know if this guy has ever broken any trades or signings?

I doubt it, we'd more likely just move Spacek and sign some cheap UFA dman.

Which I would also do.

I feel that Semin, Alzner and whatever returns Gorges garners > Weber, Kostitsyn, Gorges, 1st.

Then again, we could just swap Semin for a lesser priced player.

Semin in Montreal? Yeah... No. I would be surprised if he's even on the radar.

That trade has as much chance of happening as Gomez scoring 40 goals this year.

Redundant piece? weber is worth nearly as much as Alzner, the only reason we'd include him for Alzner is we have a ton of PMD's in the pipeline.

I'd much rather see that happen. Though it would probably be a little easier to move Gorges.

I'm a fan of all three players (Kostitsyn/Weber/Gorges), but I would do it as well. As Em Ancien mentioned though, I'd hope PG would try and move Spacek instead of Gorges.

I can't see McPhee falling for that, but it makes me drool.

Anyone "source" that goes in that level of detail proves that they're less than a "non-credible source" and more of a total fake that blows hot stuff out of some place.

I don't think you know what redundant means.

And Alzner is worth more than Weber, that's not even up for debate.

And that's why it's in this thread, so discuss the topic

Only on the Habs board is Weber worth as much as Alzner.

Get a reality check and go on the main board and see what Alzner and Weber fetch, willing to bet Alzner fetches a lot more.

Agreed.

A defensive core of Markov, Subban, Emelin, Gorges, Alzner and Gill would make me very happy, along with a formidable top 9 forward group that includes Semin.

One can dream.

Combining the rumors, our team would look like this:

Semin-Statsny-Gionta
Cammalleri-Plekanec-Cole
Maxpac-Eller-DD
Moen-White/Engqvist-Blunden/White?

Markov-Yemelin
Alzner-Subban
Gill-Spacek

Price
Budaj

Probably missing a few guys.




Won't get my hopes up though.

Alzner is good and i would want him on the Habs but i'm not sold on Semin injury prone player with tons of skills but we already had that in Kovalev not sure i want another like that. If we put the Name Tinordi instead of Weber i could very well see Mchpee pulling the trigger because Kostitsyn can be a pretty good top 6 with the right linemates.

I like Alzner but Semin is a big mystery and certainly not a Martin type player that guy would be crushed by martin for not backchecking.

Semin >>>>> Kovalev

not even in the same league. Semin would be a instant fan favorite in MTL

Semin has been somewhat injury prone, but he's no Gaborik. His lowest GP in his 5 NHL seasons has been 62. As for Kovalev, he has many faults, but health is not one of them - he has been a horse throughout his career.

edit: he's got 99 problems but his health ain't one

Yeah if we make that trade we find ourself in the same position than the Caps with Alzner, well a bit better position, but still not enough money to sign him.
