Depth move.

He's gonna play up-until Diaz's return.

I would have hope for a bigger trade, though... We are in position to win the stanley cup, we have cap space, we have draft picks + prospects as tradebait and i don't know if we're gonna be that good next season.

If that 5th rounder is a playmaking center who leads the league in assists and ridiculous shootout moves, I'm going to be very upset. I don't mean the player drafted with it. I mean the draft pick itself. I think we're pretty safe.

And that Gorges has a good value around the league. Maybe they plan to trade Gorges in the summer ?
Then we should move Josh now...
Should get 7 firsts

Without a doubt...
Did Halpern?
Did Ryder?
We want to see him in action like yesterday...

Rather than gorges, I think a more appropriate comparison is a more refined Greg pateryn

Yeah well....except for maybe O'Brien, these guys suck.

O'Byrne? Come on we got a guy who is supposedly solid defensively, sound positionnally and could even get some offensive upside and you're saying you would rather have a pylon that has no clue what to do with the puck just because they hit and fight?

Well let's just agree to disagree then

Oh come on, we got Drewiske for god sakes we shouldn't believe at all that he is any better than the guys I named. At 28 years old he has only 126 games played in the NHL I wish to see you argue what make you believe he is any better than the guys I named.

Obviously I was talking more about the return not turning out at all to be what we wanted. Not talking about what we gave.

Carbo said that it was tough to see him play this year because he played about 4-5min a game. Drew averaged just under 15min this year, over 20games.
It surprises me the lack of research and knowledge these guys have. I mean, those guys are paid to talk about the Habs and NHL, yet a simple fan on these boards can know more than these clowns in about a 2min research.
It's so freaking pathetic.

Had no clue who the guy is but it's a positive sign when you see that fans of his former team and some of his former teammates (i.e. Blake Geoffrion) have nothing but good things to say about him.

Good depth move by Montreal according to the NHL Live broadcaster.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F57nUW2N89I

Although he is not a big hitter for someone his size, good to hear that at least he is not soft, is steady, plays hard and is the type of player willing to do anything to help his team. Fits in the teams' philosophy quite well in my opinion, hence why Bergevin acquired him. Should do fine in the role of a #6 or 7.

Well of course we'll wait amd see how he pans out. Maybe he sucks, maybe he doesn't but the guys you named DO suck so it's not like the bar is really high.

Kings fans have nothing but good things to say about him while Avs fans all agree that O'Byrne is really bad so how's that for starters?

Everything I have read about this guy so far just makes me think of Gorges. Having a second Gorges on the team is not something to complain about.

Just to add some points about Whiskey, I follow him very closely because he's one of my favorite underrated underdog-type players.

Whiskey lost his spot when we traded for Ellerby, not because he deserved to be benched but we needed to see what we had in our new player in Keaton. However when Martinez went down, Whiskey stepped back in.

Started to notice game to game that his ice time kept increasing along with his specialty team minutes. The goal in st. louis that he scored was when he was paired with doughty on the first pp unit. When he stepped in for martinez, he was immediately taking the first PK along w/ scuderi. Lets you know he's valued as a shutdown guy.

His ice time climbed from about 11 minutes to about 18 minutes and was playing his best hockey til Martinez came back from injury and he was scratched again. There was a major debate on our boards that the kings should have benched Ellerby who has been underwhelming. I was really bummed that Whiskey was benched again... even though it seemed like he was earning the coaches trust quickly in all situations. I just don't get how why you rather scratch Davis logging 18 minutes rather than ellerby who was logging 11. But, i'm not the coach and I guess we're really trying to get ellerby to learn the system and the conference. Big mistake on the kings part especially when we lost Greene and Mitchell, Wiskey provides more of what those injured guys have.
Ah well, you guys have him now and i'm hoping he gets to play.

Something that you'll notice about DD44 is how much he actually takes the puck down low offensively. He's not afraid to pinch and be a part of the offensive cycle down low. Not saying he's a loose cannon by any means, he's smart about it and doesn't hesitate, which makes it easier for his teammates to cover for him at the point. But the dude is good at keeping a cycle going.
Other characteristics:
--His shots rarely get blocked
--good first pass
--he's getting nastier in front of the net from year to year, started his nhl career timid, though now he's taken a page from greene and is BECOMING more and more physical.. by no means is he a bruiser, him being a team player i just think he was afraid of picking up minor penalties, he's slowly but surely finding that balance.
--speed is average for a defenseman.
--serviceable in all situations. There's no WOW factor to Drewiske, but this guy totally gets the subtleties of being a solid NHL defenseman.

BEST of luck to DD44, please play him, you won't regret it...I think he'll come out and be timid, but it doesn't take him much time to adapt and contribute. Good luck to you guys, i'm now rooting for you in the east.

I have a sneaky feeling that in 10 days we are going to be wondering how this guy was kept in the press box so much during his career.

Not one Colorado fan has anything nearly as positive to say about O'Byrne. But SEVERAL Kings fans have echoed these sentiments on the boards, with not a single killjoy surfacing yet.

It's encouraging that maybe the Habs' pro scouting group knows what they are doing (they were already right about Ryder and Halpern!!).

cheap, good stay at home dman, can move the puck. I can't see where it is a bad trade. Seriously who give a **** about toughness anyway? The Habs are second in the East, they beat the Bruins... Clowe would have been a good add, but even if the team would stay like that, i would be ok about it, plus Bourque will be back, and let's hope Diaz soon.

I like this trade.

Obviously ATM he is going to be the 7th D when (if) Diaz comes back. However, it is good that they have Drewiske to put some pressure on the top 6 D in practice too, a bit of competition never hurt no one. On a final note, I would've liked to see more of Beaulieu.

Love it!! (genius move since we keep all of our important Draft Picks and we add a big/tall dman who can end up being a bigger version of Gorges...love it!).

Welcome to Montreal, Whiskey!! (all the best of luck and health).


2013 Draft Picks:
1st Rnd
2nd Rnd Pick
2nd Rnd Pick
2nd Rnd Pick
3rd Rnd Pick
3rd Rnd Pick

4th Rnd Pick
6th Rnd Pick? (do we still have it?)
7th Rnd Pick? (does it even go this far anymore?!)
