If indeed we've travelled back in time to 2002 I would have thought I'd have more hair.

Robidas is the stars number 1 dman. If its a fairly low price then I would take him in a second. Anybody who thinks otherwise should just take a step back and think about it. Not sure but say if we did get Robidas...What about if we sat Boullion and moved Emelin to the other side? bad idea?

Well for me if a player wouldnt be replaced i dont insert is name in my post. that like me saying pittsburgh are getting a 3rd liner centerman so he should take the spot of either crosby , malkin, , joe vitale or b.sutter .

(Weber or Kaberle) + ??? for Robidas?

1. Gorges – Subban
2. Markov - Robidas
3. (Emelin/Bouillon) – Diaz
#7: Bouillon/Emelin

Robidas is, right now, a much better top4 D than Emelin.
Emelin looked better as a LD in 2011-12.
Robidas would look better than Bouillon on the point during the PP
Bouillon (or Emelin) is a better #7D than Kaberle

At first, mostly because of my wish for a bigger D squad, I was “Robidas... wtf!” but I must admit that our D squad would be better.

And Emelin is actually a LD, iirc. So while Emelin may lose his spot at RD, if a LD is placed/scratched, Emelin takes that spot and Robidas would take the RD spot left by him.

Isn't he 35 and fast declining? I'd still trade Bouillon and Kaberle for him though.

Would rather be targetting a big , physical dman who can fill the shut down role and punch in the odd face when needed.

Meaning those are the three potential roster spots for him, because he's RD, not that he'll actually take Subban's spot haha.

If we get a guy who can fight, I'd rather he be able to punch the good looking players as well.


Don't hate me.

There is no reason the Habs would be interested in Robidas at this point. This is pure and utter speculation with no logic or reasoning behind it.

Quite frankly, I think he just makes those rumors to get Habs fans talking and checking his site. Then again I think that's probably common knowledge around here... right?

Tinordi, a LD, is knocking at the door. And Robidas, a RD, only has one more year left at his contract. I don’t want Bergevin to go on a frantic buyer mode but if the deal is “Weber or Kaberle” + ??? for Robidas... why not!

Regarding the bolded part... Robidas is a better top 4 D than Emelin and the price would not be exorbitant. And yes, we all know it's Eklund!

Yea I guess you're right, I mean obviously he is an upgrade over some of our current defensemen in certain aspects. But I'm just pointing out that it really doesn't make sense that we would be looking to upgrade on defense right now, at least in my opinion!

I guess the whole point of Eklund is good-natured fantasy talk though, which I can admit is quite enjoyable at times.

lol. we're holding teams to under 25 shots a game, and maybe 4-5 decent chances to score.

leave the team as is...or trade some spare parts for drafts picks.

Just for the record: I am willing to wait for Tinordi (2013-14) and move on with our current D squad. As I mentioned, my first reaction was “Robidas... wtf!” then I switched to “Why not!”. Geeez... what a thorough analysis eh?!

Robidas

I would love to see him in a Hab jersey again!!
There better be some truth to this rumor or I'll be so pissed off!

Gorges-Subban
Markov-Diaz
Bouillon/Emelin-Robidas

(can't get Byfuglien 'cause the price is too pricey...Robidas is another great option...hopefully not too expensive)

Kaberle+Weber= only if you're going for a top 10 overall draft pick!!

Seriously our team is firing on all cylinders right now and the only roster move I would make is to get rid of Gionta. Don't touch the defense.

Robidas would have been an option before we got Bouillon now it's too late.

That's probably the thought process most people went through in this thread: "wtf? meh, I guess it could work!" After all, Robidas is pretty good! But I'm with you, I'm fine with moving forward with this defense squad as it is.

That he would be available in that situation is a reasonable guess. That the Habs would be interested is not.

EDIT: NEver mind, we mentioned in the blurb at the end. Makes no sense.

Yeah, nothing against Robidas. He's courageous and a smart player, but he's not exactly the best fit here. The core does need some interior presence to balance things out.

the team could have addressed this earlier had they not handcuffed themselves with kaberle's deal, and just let spacek's contract expire. Then they went out with less funds on the open market and got another gutsy but small frame in bouillon, rather than a bryan allen type. Its just another reason to hate that kaberle deal.
