How important can your time really be if you're on this site discussing rebuilding the Habs?

I would do Pleks for Roy straight up.

Roy is a lot better offensively. Plus he has 1 year left at 5mil and Plek is signed until the end of eternity (2015-2016). This would give us some money freed up for the long run.

I have always wanted to trade Plekanec. I know he is a popular player and has been a good producer for us. But I don't want him as a building-block long term. So I'll take the freed up space if the Sabres would.

Maybe because every single one of them has a French name and is not francophone.
We already have R. Bourque and N. Beaulieu.
D. Roy is a francophone from Ottawa.
D. Paille is a francophone from Welland.

I know I know, they're not real francophones and not quite up to Quebecois standards.

"Plekachu" haters complain about the size of our Cs but want to play a 1-2 combo of Roy and Desharnais.

Some fans threathned to commit suicide over the trade of ECHL goalie New Bruinswick native Crédrik Desjardins, so I don't think they would mind ''fake'' francophones.

He's got an NTC. How often we have to say it?

I live in Buffalo. Believe me people, you guys don't want anything to do with Roy. He gets his points but isn't very good in the locker room. He's constantly downtown, even when they have a game the next day.

I'm sure with a summer of rest he should be back to pre 2011-2012 form.
The issue isn't if Roy is better. He is(for now and maybe in the future too). The real issue is DD makes nothing. You can add another top 6 forward or a bottom 6 center like Chris Kelly for that money which DD+Kelly makes us better than Roy alone.

I like Roy, no doubt about it. The guy would be an extra tool for us going forward. I just don't want to give up future for it.

Look, if they take kaberle+2nd or something stupid, by all means, load up on offensive power but no way do I want to trade our first, eller, DD, Plekanec or any core piece. Sorry. Roy is good and all but unless it's a real buy low deal, I don't want any part of it right now.

Seems like you would fit perfectly on the habs.

To be completely honest, I wouldn't absolutely hate Roy if I didn't hear that he was a drama queen similar to Cammy. I'd take him so long as the offer wasn't crazy but I would not trade DD, Patches, or Eller for him. And definitely not my 1st rounder in 2012.

As for the people suggesting with move DD+++ for Roy??.....

Call me crazy but right now I'd take Desharnais over Roy even with the option for a 1 for 1 trade.

Roy has looked bad for a while now. I know he's coming back from injury but you'd want him to show something, which he's not. Signing a guy because he was once a PPG player is a Gomez-esque move - without the horrible contract, but Gomez was far more productive the year before we signed him.

He plays for an offense that is even worse than ours, and you have Sabres fans coming on the board questioning his attitude.

Desharnais on the other hand is a guaranteed bargain for at least another year.

I agree that we're better off just staying with what we have. I see no reason at all to invest in another patchwork fix. Why even consider making these kinds of moves right now?

Actually Derek Roy is not a francophone. His french is awful.

Also, this move makes perfect sense. An injury prone, small, weakling offensive centre who is the biggest diver in the NHL and is forever on the cusp of breaking out but never does.

I agree with you. I don't expect the habs to blow up the team, not until these contracts expire anyway, but if we're gonna retool, get a proper fix. Not Derek Roy.

Dregs must have mis-quoted it! It has to be Patrick Roy not Derek Roy. Why would the Habs want another small, tempemental, expensive forward? This makes no sense at all. Derek Roy is having a worse year than Desharnais, given his chemistry with Pacioretty no way can take Roy over him.

It will be about like 7 year contract offer to Price....in a few hours all end up being false.

Derek Roy is a big strong kid that could really ignite the habs.

Maybe this proposal:

Habs 1st+Larry Eller+Yannick Weber

FOR

Derek Roy+Tyler Myers

I'd listen but they need to take Salary back. We can't fit this under the cap. Myers would be a great addition to our core. There's no garuantee that our pick will end up as good as either of these guys so it's obviously not as bad as it looks but Myers needs a strong finish for me to consider this. 7 year deal, i hope his first 2 seasons weren't a fluke.

See, usually when there are stupid trade rumors, you just easily forget it and understand that it makes no sense.....but not with Gauthier in charge. Scared everytime I hear something like that.
