Rentals are rarelly worth it and our depth is good enough IMO. I would look into cheap fix for a tougher defenseman but that's it!

We are likely to have a better chance in the future. Patience, our core is still young and will be much better once our current rookies&prospects become good/great NHLers.

Agreed we have a great future on the backend maybe missing a few pieces on offense but an overall great future

Realisticly...

1st, Beaulieu, Bourque.

Buffalo wouldn't go cheap on him that's for sure.

I don't want to give up any 2nd rounders either but come on. If we give up a pick and a couple mid level prospects, it's hardly going to cripple our future.

We have a surplus of picks and solid mid level prospects. We can TOTALLY afford to part with some especially if it's going to get us a really solid piece.

Is Clowe that piece? Opinion really seems to differ but I'm sure this season is a bit of an aberration for him.

The only thing is I really can't see Boston wanting to lose out on him. Especially to us. If we get Clowe, Boston's still tougher than us but not by much. If they get Clowe they become a HELL of a lot tougher.

You have to imagine that Clowe isn't going for just a 3rd rounder. I hope we can get him dirt cheap but I really doubt it. Especially if he's most likely going to sign with whoever he gets traded to.

I'd be willing to slightly overpay for him. As long as it's done creatively and we're not giving up anyone/anything real key.

I'd rather deal current prospects in our system that we know can be replaced like Leblanc than potential future home runs knowing Timmins.

absolutely agree 100%. If we can do that then I'd be thrilled. Especially in this draft and TT's knack for finding elite/borderline elite talent in the 2nd.

Like giving them LL, Nygren and Holland/Pateryn, or Ellis would be in my opinion perfect. Three real solid prospects who have varying degrees of possibly being really good yet don't really hurt our depth.

San Jose wins because they're closer to being NHL ready than picks would be? Maybe?

Pominville's great but that's a pretty crazy overpayment.

Travis Moen and our 2nd rnd pick if that's not enough than.

Travis Moen, the 3rd we got from Dallas and Louis Leblanc.

Rather not give up Moen. I know Clowe's siginificantly better but it would still feel like a bit of a sideways move. Moen to me at his worst is reliable but can be very effective and is really solid in the playoffs. Can't be a coincidence that he's playing better now that Halpern's with him.

He might not hit and fight as much as we like but he can force a draw with some tough customers and can make the odd power forward type move to the net.

I might get flamed for this but I'd sooner move Gionta for Clowe than Moen. Too bad he wears the C and it won't happen. I don't hate Gio but I just think replacing him on that line with someone with size would make a huge difference. Whether it be Clowe or Bourque. Either of those guys making space for Pleks and Ryder would be amazing.

What I think the Habs should do is trade for a bottom paring d-man and a player with a bit of size on the bottom line. Add depth players without giving up some of our better prospects.

Then we would get stuck with his ridiculous contract, but I know you we're being sarcastic I hope.

It depends on who's available. Claiming Halpern on waivers was serendipitous and it didn't cost the Habs anything in exchange. With all those 2013 second and third round picks plus the 2012 crop they already harvested the Habs are in a favorable trading position. Bergevin has a grip on the situation.The Bruins seem to be more in need of a trade for scorers.

imo we never should of parted ways, P Gauthier could of afford a little less than Columbus and I think he would of stayed. Right now he'd be in Bouillon's spot and we would be even much more serious contenders.

There are ways to go for it this year without sacrificing the future. You never know the the future holds. A responsible run can be achieved, but the loser mentality must stop. We have a very competitive team this year and a couple of key additions can put us over the edge.

If we still had Wiz we wouldn't have Galchenyuk, Collberg and probably the rest of our crazy 2012 draft sweepstakes.

You are probably right but the east looks pretty weak this year with pitts, us, boston and maybe the sens, you play the game for the playoffs I think if you feel you have any chance you should go for it. Plus if all our rookies turn out to be good it's not like we will be able to sign them all a few years down the road anyways with the cap and all.

If we had someone with four years left on a >5 million dollar per year cap it playing on the third pairing the main thing he'd be contending for would be a compliance buy out...

I don't know how Dustin Byfuglien is playing this year, but if he is anything like he was the year he played for the Hawks, I think a big D who can also spend time in front of the net during PPs, or man the point, would be more what the Habs need. I think we need a really strong D with PP strengths, and who can clear the crease, and is not a defensive liability. Rare, I'm sure, but maybe for Leblanc and Webber/Pateryn, and a pick if it is necessary.

Bergervin probably knows if he would be a good fit.

Just an idea! I don't really watch the NHL enough to have an educated opinion, though ...

I don't know what you're talking about Wisniewski plays top minutes in Columbus, he would easily be playing as much as Markov with the habs.
