Something is really going on. Probably Beaulieu.
I'm really starting to think that the Habs are after Hjalmarsson. Would make a lot of sense

I think AK46 wanted to come back to the NHL but his KHL team didn't let him leave because it was only an NHL tryout. If it was a contract offer, I think he would've been released from his KHL team.

Just speculation though.

I wish we could flip Gorges with Hjalmarsson. All in all, the contract is way better and Hjalmarsson would definitely be our clear #3 d-man.

I wouldn't be surprised if Chicago is looking at Desharnais.

Leopold to StL for a 2nd and conditional 5th... I've been hoping for a dman, but man are they getting big returns. If Leopold and Murray get 2nds, Smid must be worth a 1st. At this point I hope the Habs stand pat.

Gauthier has been in MTL many times this year, it's pretty clear this is ''home arena'' for his scouting. I wouldn't read anything into it.

The connections are there. We have Bergevin , they have Gauthier. Both man knows players from the other side since they were with that organization before.

True but he was also scouting Hamilton apparently. That change things a bit. Doesn't mean anything will happen but it wouldn't surprise me if the Habs and Hawks had preliminary trade talks.

Habs and Hawks? Both should be buyers so I don't get what kind of trade could happen between the 2. I wouldn't mind Boilig for the 4th line and Bickell for the 3rd, but Chiacago has no reason to give him up.

Gauthier is just a scout. You can pretty much connections with every team in the NHL if you go as far as making one through scouts+management.

Really, it means nothing. Scouts scout teams, that's their job, doesn't mean anything is brewing.

Also, we're both in positions to buy not sell, so it doesn't make any sense.

Unless you're 4 days away from the trade deadline and you're the best team in the league, than it CLEARLY means something is going on.

If the Hawks offer Teravainen ( whom Bergevin and Timmins were really high on) for Desharnais, do you do the trade?

Gauthier is headscout. There might be some guys left on this team that he's in love with, he's the one who drafted Nate.

Might be exactly like you said, but I don't know, sometimes just need for need swaps happens, even while respective teams are in good shape. What would help, if anything would happen, is that they're in different conferences. But who knows...

Renaud Lavoie just said there's a San Jose scout at the game tonight, and that Boyle and Clowe (fluke season, or finished ? I don't know, we really need that kind of player) might be on their way out. Of course, just words, but hey, wednesday everything will be finished til draft day, better have fun while it lasts

Not this season.. but in the off-season, yeah, I'd do it.

That trade heads up is very tempting but I'm not sure that I would.

If you look at the standings, if we secure our 2nd seed, there's no reason to think we wouldn't be able to reach the ECF.
With a bit of luck, we might even have an easy passage to the CF. If all the top 4 seeds win, we get to face the weakest team because the SE division is so weak.

So unless there's another trade made to bring us depth, not sure I do this.

I'm not sure why you say it doesn't mean anything that Gauthier is at the Habs game. The ONLY reason he'd be there is to scout for trade purposes. The only way we'd play the Hawks is in the finals.

Given Bergevin came from the Hawks and is familiar with all their players and same for Ghost, how can it mean anything else days away from the trade deadline.

He could be here to scout the Rangers.

He could be here to scout UFA's this summer on both teams.

2 problems with Gaborik is finding room for next year while upgrading the D and the pieces going back. It's not going to be cheap and Louis Leblanc probably isn't going to cut it.
