Continue here.

Please remember rumors must come from credible media sources or else they can't be posted. Thanks

Trade deadline frenzy comes only one time a year. It's so much fun to hear rumor and to speculate on it. Please, let us use credible and "non-credible" rumor. It's a fun time of the year.

im very interested in seeing whether that Leblanc + a 2nd rumor is gonna happen. thats definitely something thats plausible, and it would help the Habs to get Clowe in the lineup. Come on MB doooo itttt

Anyway all I'll say in response is that you just have to look at past deadlines to find players who shouldn't have gotten the returns they did. Who thought we'd get a 2nd and a decent prospect for Hal Gill? Who saw Gaustad getting a 1st?

All it takes is one GM who desperately wants to fill a need, and boom...there's your overpayment.

Leblanc + Nashville 2rd pick vs Clowe

I'm a huge fan of Leblanc.. But if its what takes...

This looks like the Rivet trade all over again.

I really don't want bergevin to be that desperate guy

seriously someone WILL give them a 1st and a youngster, so let's not even bother he's not worth wasting our time

Well except maybe Crim.

Yeah, talk to him

If we sign Clowe to an extension after this year I'd definitely do it, with Gallagher's emergence and Collberg/Kristo there isn't really much room for Leblanc anymore in our system.

He's had an off-year offensively but Clowe brings tons of intangibles that this team needs.

I don't doubt it either. Even if he's not scoring goals, Clowe has the kind of skill set that GMs fall in love with.

Agree.

Mods, you don't actually take this board seriously, do you?

Dumb penalties, perimeter play, laksidasical approach to gameplay etc?

For 1-2 months of Clowe? Id rather keep my 2nd pick, unless Clowe agrees to extend contract which is doubtful.

In a vacuum, we would seriously consider it. Have a feeling Bruins will counter with Koko though. Either way, it's a good offer.

Conditional pick is probably what ends up happening again.

Example:

Clowe for Leblanc + conditional 1st (1st if he re-signs, 2nd if he doesnt) like we did with Murray.

Wouldn't be horrible especially...

A-if Clow goes back to being a 50 point calibre guy here
B-we can sign him before July 1st at a reasonable price(3 years 12.5-13 mil or therebouts)

That being said I would prefer trading Weber or another "B" prospect other than LeBlanc. I think he is better than he's shown this year and will bounce back next year. Yes he isn't indispensable for us, but I think he has more value than somebody else who we may be able to move(Pateryn? Quailer?).

We're not giving a first rounder for a guy who has 0 goal this year.

I'd be fine with Leblanc + our 2nd.

Why not just wait till July 1st and send Prust and MB to his home in NF with a sweater and his name on it

You would sign Clowe for 3 years at 13 million but not at 2 years/6.5 million?

It would be devastating to find out that our rookie GM is stupid enough to pick this guy up. Really.

I was thinking he was 34 or 35...he is only 30, so I think a rebound to 08-09 to 11-12 form(76 GP 20.5-33.5-54 95 PIMs) is pretty likely and this year is just an aberration.

Why do you even bother going over there to post? Maybe 5-10% of them could actually have a conversation with you without retorting to childish antics (y u so mad is quite childish)

Anyways, I hope the habs don't make any trades regarding our youth. We are missing a few more pieces that can really make us a contender. Unless management is giving up on a player like Leblanc, he may well turn around and be our shutdown C that can score. Who knows at this point after an injury plagued year.

Clowe is not the answer, especially if we have to give up considerable assets. I would much rather see what our first 3 picks turn out to be, than have Clowe for 20 games.
