Montreal and Calgary swap

To Calgary: Yannick Weber

To Montreal: Cory Sarich

Flames get a nice young puck moving defenseman with a great shot who is caught behind too many similar types in Montreal.

Habs get a physical right handed defenseman that will give them some size and muscle on the back end.

MTL has a lot of defenseman better than Sarich and Weber, like 9-10 of them.

If they are going to move Weber it would be for a pick or a forward piece.

I don't see the point of swapping our pressbox player.

? Weber is 8th in Montreal. Although not sure that's any different than 7th. The Habs need to move Kaberle for a pick (if at all possible - may not be), but they also still need another D around if that happens. That would be Weber. But if you could trade him for a different type of defenseman like Sarich, it would probably make sense.

Weber/Sarich is ok with me. I'd like to see Weber get a chance somewhere too. As long as it doesn't leave us short - a trade for a pick would leave us short. A trade for Sarich would fit pretty well.

I'd pass, I would rather a pick for Sarich and we don't need anymore offensive defensemen.

Pass, would rather move Sarich for a 2nd+ at the deadline. Puck moving defensemen isn't exactly something the Flames are lacking at the moment with Wideman, Bouwmeester, Giordano and Brodie.

St-Denis, Kaberle, Tinordi, Beaulieu and Ellis can all do what Weber does or better IMO.

Heh, well in terms of sitting in the pressbox, undoubtedly. But I don't think we want them sitting in the pressbox, most of them. On the ice, Weber is better than all but (arguably) Kaberle. In the pressbox, he, Kaberle, and St-Denis are all essentially equivalent. On their paycheques, Weber and St-Denis have a big advantage over Kaberle.

It all adds up to Weber being a reasonable #7 if/when Kaberle could be moved. St-Denis is his only real competition. But a team won't have every D-man healthy all season long either, so there will be ample room for both of them to get chances at some point, be it on the ice or in the pressbox. Meanwhile the prospects have to keep playing every game and getting better icetime in Hamilton.

Status quo is fine until something changes, see how our guys hold up and how the marketplace evolves. Doesn't sound like Calgary would be a fit for Weber.

They can't. Not that type of player.

Don't need either on the blue line right now, so if you are going to be in the press box, I would rather the 850K cap hit rather the 2 million one.

Cap/Habs don't need another D.

I'd do Kaberle for Sarich though. lol
