IMO I wouldnt even give Eller straight up for Roy.
we'd be stupid to not give up Eller straight up for Roy. We'd be ripping off Buffalo pretty bad. His size scares me, but if we are content with having somebody like Desharnais in the lineup we could replace him with Roy.

Loss for words.

/rose-colored glasses
Eller for 1.5m or Roy for 4m, easy decision for me to make. Plus Roy's teammates hate him.

More small guys are on the way like Gallaghar anyway.
I don't see whats wrong with what I said. Plekanec is a good player, only normal I'd miss him. I never said I wouldn't do the deal though.

We would obviously like Getzlaf, but Getzlaf would probably not agree to an extension with us, so it would be pointless to trade for him.

The only Roy comes to Montreal is if Plekanec or Gomez gets moved. I've read Chicago was interested in Plekanec.

Would Chicago give up a 1st - Stalberg and Bickell for Plekanec and Gill

Hmmmmm...... a 5'8" player, with a cap hit of $4Mil/Year, who's down in production after having surgery from a pretty bad knee injury.... Sounds like the perfect fit. Nothing like getting smaller down the middle......

I was OK with Bourque. We got a prospect and 2nd round pick. But no more guys pushing 30 or over to help us make 9th place. Let's build around the youth.

Umumm.... You're joking right?

This isn't poker.... You don't want 3 of a kind (midgets)

Eller.... Upside
ROy...Downside

If youre serious, get yourself into a rehab program

C'mon we have to rebuild instead of giving up promising young guys for a super soft 6' center who never shows up in April (according to Sabres fans).

Getzlaf is the type of C that we need not Roy. Wake up people!

I'd be looking at dave bolland from chicago. Watching him come back from injury to wreak havoc on vancouver during the playoffs convinced me.

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.
His french is just as good as Luc Gélinas' english!

We do. But the price is going to be steep. Subban+Patches+prospect/picks package should get us Getzlaf.

Roy played good last night but overall I'd rather have Deshairnais. Low contract, harder worker don't cause dressing room any trouble

How is Gauthier a clown? For inheriting Gainey's mess?

Those contemplating trading Eller or even Eller +1st for Derek ****ing Roy must be related to Houle.

Roy is a nice player... but absolutely not what this team needs.

Not nearly enough of an upgrade over Pleks/DD to be worth trading any asset of value for.


Eller + 1st is beyond absurd...

Didn't Dreger in one of his recent articles say that there is nothing more on the Roy front? He said habs kicked the tires, but it looks like it stopped there.

Edit: Actually all he said was that he heard that the habs MIGHT be interested.

It's the same that blame the GM for bad moves. Holy hypocrites.
