Minnesota doesn't seem to need defense depth. They seem to have more than an ample supply. Stoner is good in his role, and the Habs could use a player like him. Whereas the team would have no need/room for Kassian. But anyway, it's too much potential for the Habs to give up for the solid role player in Stoner. Pass.

No, we need to keep that grit and there's no reason to trade for depth on the blueline at the moment.

Wild can't flip both of those guys after snagging them away from UFA status :.

Did I miss the boat or something? I thought Montreal was still very high on Palushaj.

montreal should be, but habs board isn't. it's the "lulz y he no score 30 on the fourth line with blunden and nokelainen/gomez" he sux

he's done in the AHL, time for him to get some proper icetime with non-blackhole talent-sucking linemates and see what he can do

I don't think either team does this deal. Stoner and Kassian are insurance for Granlund (and to a lesser extente parise)

Stoenr, Kassian, Konpoka and Powe make up a group of 4 guys who will punch your face in if you touch our stars.

Wild don't trade either of the guys they just signed contracts to this offseason.

No thank you. We need our grit and both Stoner and Kassian provide a lot of it.

Agreed. These are our top guys for grit (with Clutter). Much needed.

Big no thanks from the Wild. The Wild like that they can now mix it up against any team.

Kassian, Konopka, Clutterbuck, Stoner, Powe, Scandella, Mitchell, and Falk can be as physical as any team in the league.

I thought Weber was supposed to be a very good, up-and-coming offensive defenseman for the Habs. Did something happen?

Mostly what happened is that Markov came back, Subban was better, and then they traded for Kaberle. Oh yeah, and Diaz showed up out of nowhere and was also at least as good as Weber. Then Weber became a bit redundant in the mix. He has had moments of goodness and lesser moments, pretty much as one might want to expect from a young non-stud defense prospect, so standard fan impatience is a part of the equation, but more than anything else his perceived redundancy puts him in almost every Habs fan's trade proposals on this board.

I'm interested in the players Montreal is offering, but Minnesota can't get rid of our two most physically punishing players.

I'd love Stoner, but not at that price.

Palushaj still has top-6 potential, IMO. Diaz can easily become a Top-4 defenseman. Weber... well he's a wildcard - it depends which version of Weber shows up for the games.

Not happening since Ortmeyer is now a FA.
