If the Sabres make Pominville available what would you be willing to give that is a fair trade ?

You could always try drachmas, shekels or dong.

Nothing. Is he an improvement over any current hab? At 5.3 mil cap hit, I don't think so.

I'd give Pominville a polite thanks but no thanks.

Over Bourque, Ryder and Gionta at least.

I would likely give a package like this Bourque (roster player) + 2nd and an interesting prospect (Ellis maybe ?)

For Pominville? That would be a mistake. The Habs need Bourque's style of play. Pominville is just a slightly better version of Ryder.

Depending on what the Sabres want, i'd be interested in Pominville

Really not, that's just too lateral and at an increase of 1.3 mil in cap hit. Bourque is fine or at least was fine under Therrien + Pominville plays on the right not the left. We'd just be creating a hole for not a lot, plus having to sacrifice a prospect we still haven't seen in the majors. That's just wrong.

Edit: The point is he's not enough of an improvement to mess up with the team's lineup. Now do the same exercise for Vanek and I'd be listening. Bourque for Vanek as a base would sound ok, but Bourque is concussed so...

It would be awesome for the habs to land C. Stewart especially going into the POs.

With our depth at center, i would be willing to part with Eller...Possible?

I think STL still thinks highly of him, and since he's starting to come into his own, it would be an attractive asset. Stewart is also only 2 years older than Eller.

Seems like our center depth takes a hit with this deal. Stewart is a great player, when motivated, but who does he bump on the wings?

With Bourque, Diaz and Prust returning, MB doesn't NEED to make any moves at all. Least of all any deal that would chip away at our center depth (the 2nd most important thing after defensive depth).

If someone wants to float us a bottom-6er or a big, vet D-man for a limited return, then fine. Otherwise, I think we're looking at it, boys... and that's fine by me!

I'm just throwing it outhere, to see you guys opinion. This isn't a rumor.

Would you do:

Kassian

?

I think getting John Erskine and one of Matt Hendricks or Jay Beagle would be good for the playoffs.
I think Weber, Armstrong, 3rd and prospect would get it done.

Pacioretty-Desharnais-Gallagher
Bourque-Plekanec-Ryder
Galchenyuk-Eller-Gionta
Prust-Hendricks/Beagle-Moen
White

Subban-Gorges
Markov-Emelin
Erskine-Diaz
Bouillon

We should look at both WSH and PHI as potential trade targets. They both have bottom6ers and depth players that could be useful. If any deal goes down, it will more then likely be a small one. Would love to get Talbot but I think we'd have to overpay.

I wouldn't do Eller for Kassian. Kassian hasn't produced without the Sedin's doing the work.

Clowe for Montreal's second and Danny Kristo.

Gives you a big body and net presence with all kinds of grit.

Bourque - Plekanec - Gionta
Pacioretty - Desharnais - Gallagher
Clowe - Galchenyuk - Ryder
Prust - Eller - Moen
Ex - White, Armstrong

Why is everybody so quick to throw Kristo in all of the trades when he is arguably our best current prospect not already playing pro?

I'd do it personally, but it probably wouldn't please most on both sides. Not that I think it's a bad proposal, it's just a proposal that relies too much on current trends as opposed to the potential of both players who are young enough to warrant high potential value.

Because some people think the habs will not sign Kristo.

Oooof mate are you sure that is wise? Perhaps when Clowe was in his prime and not a rental that might have been halfway decent it covered a need...

Exactly........I can hardly wait to see Danny Kristo in a Habs uni.

What? I don't think anybody thinks that. Or shouldn't. Signing Kristo is a no-brainer, it will be done. But that said, he's not big, and I don't know how different he projects to be from our "prototype prospect". We have a bunch of skilled or smart but not big forwards, and I don't think Kristo has shown himself to be a "special prospect" really. But he might just have a little more trade value than Leblanc or Bournival or Hudon or Bozon or Collberg, say. Or he might not. But either way, I can see him being somewhat expendable if a team likes him.

Yeah I don't know why would they think that, I'm just reporting what I read. Maybe they think that because he isn't sign right now it's a sign?

Edit: it was in an earlier post in this thread or the tradecenter thread...

No he's not. He's playing as an overager in a weaker league (based on his skills that is). Stats are deceiving when you do that. He should have been in the AHL this season.

Personally I leave the offense alone, maybe add a better 4th line player than Ryan White. We already have Colby Armstrong/Brenden Prust/Travis Moen so the pieces are in place. We'll get Rene Bourque back soon and Rapheal Diaz. What we are weak on is defense, we need another puck moving defenseman. Tomas Kaberle is finished.

I like our forwards, we have some depth.

Bourque-Plekanec-Gionta
Pacioretty-Desharnais-Gallagher
Galchenyuk-Eller-Ryder
Moen-Prust-Armstrong/White

Might be worth adding a 4th line grinder like Eric Nystrom. 6'1" 210lbs plays with heart and would be better than White. Probably cost us like a 5th or 6th round pick.

Markov-Emelin
Subban-Gorges
Boullion-Diaz
Weber/Kaberle

We could add someone like Jordan Leopold who's in his final year of his contract, solid puck moving defenseman. He's 6'1" around 200lbs, maybe Yannick Weber for Leopold.

We don't need a big trade, we got good chemistry, just need to add some pieces before going into the playoffs.

We don't need to trade,Mike Boivin from Minnesota and Dekeyser from Western Michigan can be signed as Free Agents from College.Sutr from UNO is available the behemoth that NYR's and Flyers are pursuing 6'8" -235 lbs and growing.
