I would rather wait until we have a new CBA in place before answering.

Not true. Finances are no different than last year when we spent to the cap.

it would be easier for me to trade Subban if i could have a somewhat guarantee he would come back with the team as UFA summer 2016.

and a funny thing about Gomez: Montreal somewhat struggle when he is not in the lineup.

Gomez will crack 50 points playing with the Devils if he is bought out by the Habs and Lou picks him up.

Whether you take on Gomez or not shouldn't lower Subban's value in a trade. Because if you take on Gomez he will only have one year left on his contract at an actual salary of 4.5 mill with a cap hit 7.3 mill which is great for teams looking to save cash or meet the cap floor.
So in fact its the Habs doing the other teams favours if they trade Gomez to them. Now that we have that out of the way; if we are generous enough to trade you Gomez, what would you want for Larsson?

Devils have too much defense and not enough skilled forwards.

The solution is not more defense + Scott Gomez of all players.
Regardless, I don't think any offer could be assembled that wouldn't be brutal for the Habs in return.

I don't see a starting point here.

Larsson is not on the block i'd give you Tallinder, Merrill, Teddy, and a First for Subban, Plekanec, Gomez, 2nd, and first in 2014.

Id rather just keep Gomez for the remainder of his contract than giving up part of our core in Pleks and Subban for a couple of grinders and a prospect like Merril that projects to be a 3-4 dman at best. Also that pick in 2014 will be a high one if we replace pleks and Subban with Tallinder and Tedenby. So no thanks from a Habs pov.

sure brah


Merrill’s maturity has come into to question at times in his young career, but he has the multi-purpose skill set to eventually evolve into a top-pairing defenseman that can play in all situations. He has 40-50 point upside. Ryan Suter is a good comparable at the NHL level. Merrill will return to the Wolverines this fall for his junior season.

-Terrible for the Habs
-Doesn't solve Devils defensive logjam, only makes it worse
-Merrill shouldn't be given up on
-We shouldn't be giving up a first in the year we host the draft

(Just to sneak a little homerism in here... Tallinder isn't a fringe player by any means)

Subban isn't on the block any more than Larsson so I don't see how that is relevant. For your actual proposal, it could not get any worse for the Habs. Not only do we trade our top defenseman AND our top center, we also trade a first and second round pick so we won't even get the reward for being the worst team in the league.

Subban will never be involved in a trade along with Gomez. You're trying to apply a discount which won't work, a low risk high reward one at that because Gomez had success with NJ in the past and is coming off the books with a low 'real' salary.

Subban is not on the block i'd give you (lots of garbage) for Larsson, Zajac, (cap dump), 2nd and first in 2014.

No way. I wouldn't complain too much if we signed Gomez if there was an amnesty buyout which Montreal would definitely use on him easily. As long as we signed him for cheap, and nothing too long term. Give him a year to see how he is, and decide the next Summer if he gets maybe a two year.

I'd like to have Gionta back, but with a $60 million cap a possibility, and being close to the cap after re signing Zajac, and Clarkson if we can, I don't think we can afford him. If he was in his last year though that would be awesome. I'd expect Montreal would want a forward in a deal for him though. A forward not named Tedenby either.

I doubt it. His abilities have decreased at a Janne Niinimaa-like pace.

Congratulations, this may be the worst proposal on HF. Good lord, the Habs are absolutely decimated.

To the actual point of this thread, loose as it may be. Montreal is not going to essentially give up Subban just to rid themselves of Gomez. In fact, he isn't going to be traded.

I bet there are very few teams that would be willing to give up what it would take to get Subban. I doubt the devils are one of them.

look, Gomez last year missed half the season and we had one of our worst season in history.

Any other fans are aware of the positive impact he have on our lineup?

i am all aware, he is overpay, i am all aware it would be greater to have almost any other 7 000 000$+ player (or 2 x 3 500 000$) than him on the lineup.

I would gladly put him on waiver and replace him by UFA.

But we have to give him some credit. if he was a 2 000 000$ player, he would be useful to any team.

I wouldn't accept any linkage between Gomez and Subban being moved, anyway. If you want Gomez, fine anybody can have him, of course. If you don't, no worries, Habs are better off just waiting to see what the new CBA brings in terms of being able to get rid of him, or just riding out the year left on his deal. In an extreme case of a new CBA arriving that doesn't allow an out on Gomez and brings the cap down to the point where Gomez's cap hit is unmanageable for the team - well then that's a scenario where he could start to have negative value to us. But an awful lot of teams will be trapped if that happens, and the market will be flooded with better options than Gomez for any teams which still have space to add (and NJ probably won't be one of those). There isn't any point in making a move based on such an unlikely scenario happening. Cross that rickety bridge if it ever comes up.

As for Subban... I would want Larsson+. So far Larsson hasn't matched Subban, but of course Larsson's very young and there's every reason to think he will one day, he's a fantastic young player. But Subban is getting better too, and I really like the energy and character he brings to the team. He's a great personality to have around. The "+" would have to carry very significant value to me as well to make up for that. But I know Devils fans will say "no thanks" at the Larsson threshold already, so no point in going there.

Gionta is pretty important to the team, I don't see Habs trading him. If you include the playoffs he has scored 77 goals in 200 games with the Habs, that is about 30 goals a season. And with the Habs need of guys that score, moving Gionta might not be wise. Pls the guy is pure clutch, Cammy got all the credit in the 2010 playoffs, but Gionta had 9 goals in 19 games himself.
