So who's reporting this potential deal with the habs? Is it a legit possibility? Im a big fan of beaulieu, I'd love to get him. Good potential 2-way guy who I think is ready to play in the NHL.

For an overpayment. He's the only physical defenseman aside from Subban Montreal has.

You're undervaluing Silfvergberg, IMO.

Its closer to Couturier + Cousins + 1st.

Couturier > Silfvergberg
Cousins < Noesen
1st = 1st

That's not a price I would have wanted the Flyers to pay.

Would someone explain to me how Clarkson can get paid more than Hartnell and Simmonds...?

Homer signs Emery for 1.65m and Lecavalier for 4.5m and people still insist he's the worst GM when it comes to contracts, meanwhile TOR and NJD sign these two guys for more.

I would not want to give to Gagne as he might only be here for one year, and I would not want to take it away from someone.

Just realized, Lightning signed Filpulla.

Nice acquisition. I guess, they will be a great team to watch.

Agreed. Ottawa didn't acquire him for a two year run.

So many rumors on the Montreal board about Coburn+Talbot being discussed. New name to come up, Gionta.

Silfverberg doesn't have the potential or the ability to have as big an impact as Couturier. He'll be a nice complimentray piece that can play on the wing on the second or third line. He's younger than Read, but I doubt he goes on to be that much better of an offensive player than Read.

Noesen is a better prospect than Cousins. I'm starting to think Cousins is at least 2-3 seasons away from cracking an NHL roster. Noesen might step in on Anaheim's roster this year. He's much closer to Laughton in terms of value.

I wouldn't have given up that package for Ryan either. I was just taking a shot at the crazy returns that Anaheim fans thought he would garner.

Danny Dube apparently said on RIS (french TV) that Gionta would be part of the deal to Philadelphia (my guess is for cap reasons, $5M off the books next year).

Also, Marc Bergevin pushed his press conference back from 4PM to 4:45PM.

Nothing concrete, but fun to speculate some more.

How in the world could we take on Gionta's contract? That's crazy talk.

I posted a source from a radio station in Quebec earlier in this thread. That appears to be the genesis of the discussion.

(98.5 - Sports) - The Montreal Canadiens now trying to get hold of the attacker Maxime Talbot of the Philadelphia Flyers. Several players could be involved in this exchange with the Philadelphia team, the defender Braydon Coburn.


The Flyers are obliged to reduce their wage bill and the Canadian is strongly interested in Talbot, recognized for its passion Quebecers and desire to win.


Talbot scored 152 points in 504 NHL games. He also won the Stanley Cup in Pittsburgh. He is under contract for another three years, it affects an average of $ 1.75 million per season.

I'm so damned happy we didn't get Ryan. Now there's a move that wouldn't have made sense.
