Great minds think alike Tuggy
I'm not sure we'll play teams outside our division more than twice.

Not too many interesting D available and I think we need to add some depth. Who d'you want?



Why aren't we in on Derek Roy? He would fit in perfectly!!!

I don't mind Talbot, but given his production(10 points in 35 games), cap hit(1.75 mil x 3 years) and the Flyers conundrum with the cap, the price better not be high.

Plus, if we get him you have him Prust and Moen at 6+ mil on the 4th line. If you add him and trade Moen you lose another big player for a much smaller one...

Ryder 6'1" 198lbs vs Briere 5'8" 175lbs
Moen 6'2" 220lbs vs Talbot 5'11" 185lbs

They probably want one who can actually play in the defensive zone.

Unless something falls in their lap, I don't believe the Habs will be that active today. Briere was their main move

That's a good thing...in a way...don't want them throwing crazy money and term at Horton Clarkson Clowe etc

BUT there are still 3-4 moves needed.

Lebrun says Briere was the Habs main move and likely won't be active. The dream of a Desharnais - Briere - Gionta line still lives.

DLC are also reporting that the Habs might claim Arron Asham from waivers.

Now that's something I would like as well. But he'll be packaged for Bobby Ryan or something.

Maybe Meszaros?

Ya, take that with a grain of salt. Those people are clueless

Anyways that said I would be against swapping Talbot for Moen if the Flyers are interested

So I guess those were literally Bergevin's balls in the air, aimed toward the fans.

They have plenty of those guys already so it's a non issue. They can use DD like the Habs did in 2011-12.

Maybe so, but O'byrne would add depth and maybe buy Tinordi more AHL time to play big minutes and develop. Lots of other options, Peckham Fistric Komisarek etc

I can see the Habs adding a gritty 4th liner type today.

Not surprising, I'm expecting a 3rd or 4th liner and a bottom D pairing. That's about it. There is also no one I'd want them spending on

I don't think Clarkson and Clowe will live up to their contracts and Iginla and Alfreddson are not what we need

As long as the sellouts continue, they're happy.

Meh, it seems pretty obvious to me that any other big moves are going to have to come from a trade. Our roster is pretty packed to the gills right now. I'd like to see us add a depth fourth liner (Nystrom, Hendricks, Gordon) and some tougher depth on D (Murray, Fistric, Zanon) but nobody should be expecting Clowe/Clarkson/Jagr/Iginla...there just isn't room.

If we are going to trade DD or Gionta, it makes sense to see which teams will be desperate after striking out in free agency, so don't expect them to be moved for at least another week, if at all.

Rick Springhetti ‏@Rick1042 4m My impression are that the Habs are done with FA but have some fires going on the trade front. Deals may go down after FA period settles.
