Gilman would find a way

Really? O'Reilly 33rd overall and Merrill 38th (many think it was a steal) overall + another young center. And don't the Avs have ine of the worst defenses right now?

Nothing to do with value but I dont think the habs would part with gorges. He is captain material. Prospects and picks would be what the habs offer IMO

Personally I wouldn't deal Gorges for RoR straight up let alone add to it.

Yeah, a lot of people think they're somewhat recently drafted 1st rounders that aren't improving still have value and that no one else knows yet.

Which is why the Avs haven't signed him yet.

If Merrill was a steal at 38th and has not played a single game in the NHL what does that make O'Reilly who was 33rd and just had a 55 point season while leading the league in takeaways?

The Devils have a logjam on defense right now and Merrill wants to play for his college. Not saying O'Reilly isn't awesome but why does that make Merrill useless? I mean maybe the Devils have to add but worst proposal ever?

Merrill's hardly impressed me at the NCAA level. Pass.

I didn't say it made Merrill useless or that it was the worst proposal ever. I'm merely trying to say don't center a deal around the two. especially when you're trying to make up the difference with Josefson.

Oilers offersheet ROR would be pretty awesome
a team that can afford to lose a high pick and adding a two way C like him to the top 6 would be pretty amazing

It was the other guy who said worst proposal ever. I didn't mean to imply it was you. But fair enough for the rest.

And with Montreal's glut of 2 way centers and Gorge's role with the team it would have to be ROR +. So no deal there.

RoR + Hejda for Georges + Eller?

RoR definitely holds more value then Georges now, but MTL needs that Defensive guy on there back end. Hejda can replace Georges, and Eller replaces Ror.

Because (unfortunately) there are only so many roster spots.

Slightly off topic: but is there a franchise that over values their players more than New Jersey does?
