Makes $3.9 mil annually. Just resigned with MTL for 6 years last season. The Pens need to solidify their D-corps. Right fit for Pittsburgh? What would MTL want back?
Question ... do you just pull a name out without seeing their value to their own team? Georges is the top defensemen there; a pretty decent cap hit and isn't going anywhere. Not trying to start anything. I like him as a player, but its very evident he isn't going anywhere unless Crosby or Malkin or Neal are heading back. We don't have anything Montreal wants absent those players.
Why not try someone who could be on the move, not someone there is little to no chance that he is on the move?
Right now the Habs basically have nobody who could come in and replace him and the role he brings. Really can't see a viable trade with the pens. Now if the habs are out of it at the deadline, a trade for young guys or close to NHLers might work.
not being dealt. heart and soul guy who loves playing here - just signed long deal. leading nhl shot-blocker. young. i wish teams would stop offering young D back. habs are LOADED @ D. ellis, beaulieu, tinordi, subban etc...
if he were dealt it would be for a quality forward. habs may have to add but it would be for an established winger with size who can score
