Your source sounds like a bum, I wouldn't put much stock into it.

Look for a big draft swap, with Montreal leveraging Calgary's 2nd plus two roster players for a high 1st-round pick.

Desharnais + Kristo + Diaz + #25 + #36 (Calgary's pick anyways)

for

#6 + #67


Calgary get's a late 1st, their 2nd rounder back, a 2C, 2RW, 3/4 PMD...and they're all young...

For the record, of course I'd like Lecavalier, but not for more than 5 millions, and then one of Pleks or DD has to go. Or Gionto, but then you still have a logjam at C.
Move DD to the wing.

I doubt Calgary will trade a #6, though I wouldn't mind that trade (Diaz would be a painful loss, IMO).

Columbus has two 1st-round picks higher than ours, at #14 and #19. Targeting their #14 would be affordable for both clubs.

The best thing about this draft? We have four picks before Boston has their first! That's a concrete way to overtake them.

Not necessarily hating on the idea of looking to trade Price (although I wouldn't) but you have to be able to answer this.
Halak is avaialble. And, while he auditioned as a forward, I hear Raphael can also play net.

If Sabres were able to move from 21st to 14th with a 44th pick, we can certainly move from 25th to 15-16th with a 36th pick.

I personally don't have much faith in any of these 'rumour mongers', however you never know right? My thoughts at first was Letang as well, however after re-reading his quote, do you think he means Stanley Cup parade?...

also, VL's career has been on a spiral downhill for the last 4 years.. he was bought out. why would we want him? Unless it's to get rid of DD, I am against it. and even if it gets rid of DD... still against it.

Being bought out means nothing, he just wasn't deserving of his 7.8 million $ salary plus the term was way too long. I would gladly take him at 4-5 million per year on a shorter term, something like 2-3 years.

In Hindsight: DD, Diaz and Kristo would all be picked in 2nd round plus there are NHL'rs (most likely Kristo will be one).

Would you trade 25 + 36 and say 44 + 45 + 46 for a 6th?
Better be sure you get a player who will become top-3 in a year or two.

Because with 5 second round picks, you are bound to get 2 NHL'rs that would be top-9.

It's more the fact that his totals in everything was declining. since 2008 he played 1 complete season. He has been a - player every year since 2006/2007, his totals are sliding and he's not going to be playing with Stamkos or St Louis on the PP/5/5 (which yes, i know he didn't do much of this year)... To me, it's not worth it. However, that's me.

Sweet, after that trade Calgary would have enough spare parts to have 2 ****** teams!

Obviously the d needs help but that could be a solid forward line up. Could use bigger grit on the 4th line but still not bad.
Where is Emelin in your master plan....get rid of either Bouillon or Diaz and put Emelin in there FFS.

Eklund with a new post on his blog saying the Habs are the hottest team in the Letang race. If true it will probably cost us Beaulieu and our first round pick. Hopefully it isn't..

Maybe, but how often has Eklund's habs stuff ever come true.

Don't believe for a second MB would even consider a second $7M offensive defenseman. PK is all round and we have a surplus of PMDs. Need a Savard or Langway clone.

I wouldn't mind it if the price wasn't crazy high and if we can flip Markov for a steady big dman. Scudari's rights?

Without Hamrlik, Spacek, Gill, etc. the team really needs a sage, experienced Dman to tutor all the youthful D. Plus I have to believe that without Markov, Emelin would not flourish. We need Markov four at least another year.

Or Larry Robinson as Asst. Coach.

Since day ONE, Bergevin has preached you build for success through the draft. All year he stressed this point over and over.

Now because the biggest rumor mongering (read lying SOB) on the web feeds some baseless tripe, everyone thinks Bergevin will trade all of his assets on one player?

Very. Highly. Unlikely.

He stood pat at the deadline, not giving up assets for short term help. His philosophy hasn't changed overnight.

In no way do we need Subban Markov and Letang. One has to go. We would still need size and grit. Sure Emelin has learned quite a big from marky but Emelin is 27! I am sure he can figure things out with the D coach or even on his own. It's not like he's an 18 yr old.

If Letang comes, Markov has to go. Maybe Markov to move up in the draft?
