Cammy. He played horribly this year, but bourque CANNOT turn it on like Cammy can in the playoffs. Cammy was clutch in the post season.

I am a HUGE Cammalleri fan.

Cammy has more talent (offensively)


BUT....he is one-dimentional.


Bourque adds size and grit, a little bit of dirty and another forward that likes to go to the net. Him with Max Pac and Cole, and at times with AK we have 4 top 6 forwards with size. Eller is rounding into a 2nd line C. If we can draft Grigorenko or Galchenyuk, we will have a very good top 6.

Getting the 2nd on top of the cap savings AND a player that will likely be someone who will score more goals in a Habs uni than Cammy would have we end up winners

I like Bourque for his price. He doesn't play smart and he's streaky but he's a multidimensional player who hasn't lost all his grit like the accusations say. You give him a purpose and he will get his hands dirty.

Cammalleri has a far higher ceiling but this was an excellent trade IMO. These are the type of players we need, guys who can skate and have an nasty streak.

Ummm, pretty sure that if you're going to use drawing UFA's as a 'point' Bourque gets the advantage costing $3m less per year.

If getting a UFA is important, I'd rather have an extra $3m to spend than be able to sell the point that he would play on the same team as "Cammalleri".

I'm pretty sure Cammy's reputation around the league as a primadonna does not make him a power to draw UFAs.

Bourque.

Cammy has been a non factor for too long, and continues to be with the flames.

Bourque size and talent (he has too) can help, even if he he's not playing his A game everytime.

Both very hum-hah players at the moment. I think Bourque will be good in the longer term though. He's faster and bigger than Cammalleri. Not as good of a shot though.

It is funny how the trade was initially panned by most, and now not so much.

Yep...He hit the brakes and stood in front of the net, Cammalleri would have been on the perimeter or come in slowly as a trailer waiting for a one timer. Bourque went hard at the net forcing the opposing D to backup on the play.

Lucky bounce but he stopped in front of the net and won the loose puck

Cammy is the best player in that trade. Bourque is exactly like Kostitsyn.

If we were for getting bigger I would have traded about any of our other small players to get him but Cammy had the best upside offensively in all the team. You don't trade that because of a bad season.

First, last year was not a good season either, except playoffs. Cammy as not been what we had hoped for.

The best player theory is garbage in a cap world, time to move into the 21st century. And I don't even agree with him beeing the best player. All that guy as is a great shot, but brings nothing else. BTW, he as been as bad with Calgary so far.

Cammy had no friends and was very dislike in the dressing room, you don't keep that in a locker room no matter what.

Honestly, I don't get why some people can't understand basic simple facts of life

A pouting, overpriced, high octane 29 ½ years old smurf that will give you 25 goals or a big, 30 years old, 25 goals scorer who is not afraid to go in the heavy circulation?

Add a 2nd round pick + a prospect + 3M$ in cap space coming our way... though choice!

Our best player was Gionta last year. (if we exclude Price)

This year it's Cole.

Kostitsyn has been a better player than Cammy on both ends since the 2010 playoffs. I'd take another Kostitsyn over Cammalleri right now easily.

I like Bourque because he is the style of player the habs need. He has size, speed and goes to the dirty zone , He takes nights off but so does just about every other NHL player. Cammy is very talented and a great playoff performer but one dimensional.

Bang on...a great shot, but that's it...he has been really soft since his shoulder seperation vs the Sabres...

This was a good trade, based on our needs...Bourque will score some dirty goals...

Towards Cammalleri's end here, I think everyone had grown tired of his effortless games and his ineffectiveness in helping the team win. I think most of us would be happier without him, regardless of what the alternative is.

Another vote for René Bourque. This guy has a huge presence in front of the net, exactly what Cammelleri was not able to do.
