Since he's not taking faceoffs, no he isn't. His offense is also fairly limited compared to guys like Bolland.

You're way out to lunch.

While I'd like to think Moen would get us a 1st I just don't see it happening. That being said, we gave away a 2nd for Moore who doesn't bring as much as Moen...

The only 1st rounders we can get are those from top ranked teamss given to how low a pick they are and how close they are to being a 2nd rounder.

I like the guy but if we could get a good prospect or draft pick we should definitely move him.

At the same time the price needs to be reasonable. If re-signing Moen costs 2 mil per year for 3 years, probably not worth it.

I would do it in a heart beat. Price is a good goalie with great size but he's gonna command way too much money for what he's worth and it's not like he's been close to winning anything. And there are about 20 goalies that have been playing better hockey than him so far this yr. Championships can be won without great goalies (see Detroit). Also, Montreal always seems to find goalies that play extraordinarily well here so I'm not overly worried about finding a replacement.

well he is making 1.5 this year, having a carer year. Signed 3 years with us. Why wouldn't he want a deal with more or less 3 years and since he is having a career year he will ask for more money, probably around 2 per year

Agreed. As long as they find out what his price is before they move him.

Moen might be better in the PK departement but these guys are younger and this can be learned. You don't keep someone for the penalty kill.

Moen needs to get another scoring streak going to up his value a bit.

Man your crazy, what in the hell would the habs do with a guy at 6'5'', the home team dressing room at the bell center is only built for smurfs. LoL

Sounds good to me, where do i sign !!

I'm with you on that, i'd do a trade for price to better the team!! It not like price is tearing it up! He's been average at best, sometimes great and sometimes soft, works out to be average. it's gotten to the point where you really don't know what game he's bringing anymore, not only a game , but what period is he going to play great or poorly in. In other words, not dependable.
One game, winner take all, must be 10 other goalies out there i would pick before taking price as my starter,

hope he plays well at the ASG

He's better in every department. Younger isn't an argument in their favour to replace what he does if you ask them to. White is a rookie and Blunden a borderline NHler. If he wants to stay at 1.75 million a season, that's a fair deal, and they should keep him because he's a good role player. I wouldn't overpay him to keep him, but I'd make sure I knew what he wanted before I moved him.

If we trade Moen, a player that i really like, it needs to be for a younger "moen" type of player. For example, if we trade him to LA, i want Clifford. If we trade him to the Blues, i want Ryan Reaves, etc.

'Cause if we trade Moen, we need somebody that can drop the glove from time to time even if White is coming back.

There are a couple of teams out there who are going to make the playoffs but their PKs suck. Chicago and San Jose to name two. I'd try to extract a huge price from them for a Moen/gill combo which will improve their penalty kill greatly.

Love Moen, but he is definitely or most coveted trade piece. Gotta sell high (for once).

If we get the right offer, we need to part ways with Moen. He's worth alot more to certain other teams than he is to us right now.

Bolland isn't a role player, cripes he's a CORE player!

Since when do role player have to be the faceoff guy? MAB and Gill are role players and they never take them...Thornton either...

You don't need a "Moen type" coming back if you trade him...take the best value(picks and/or prospects). We have White and Blunden and we can go after Prust or somebody similar in July.

For the right price he is available. Get Vancouvers 1st and sign him in the offseason.

When he signed he was a UFA, re-signing him we would get a home town discount.
When re-signing a player you can't just look at 1 year...he is on pace for 15-16 goals but the last 2 years he got 19 and 16 points. Still don't think he is worth 2 mil.

I've never heard about a player traded at the trade deadline and signing with his old team the next summer. Has this ever happened?

Agree completely. Reaves is a beast in the size/toughness dept... Clifford less so but maybe the better player.

Good thinking tho ...

So that's why Moen is "hurt"? He's been traded.

Best time to trade Moen IMO. He's been very good this year but it's a contract year. Meh about the previous years he's been with us.
