I hate people making such statements...

If LA asks for a first rounder, then Bergevin says no. Thus, no chance to Montreal. Simple as that.

Ya, hard to get on MB when..

A. You don't actually know if the rumor was true to begin with.

B. You don't know what the real asking price was.

First rounder is a no go for a team that says they are the same path that they started with at the beginning of last year, and that's building through the draft.

Yeah and now we've got a guy who is exactly what this team needs, would be a Prust for many years when we compete and we aren't in on it for god knows what reason, watch it he moves for peanuts. Why can't we afford to move a 2nd+ our prospect pool is littered with 2nd round talent but we are missing a guy like Clifford

Shouldn't we see what he's traded for before crapping on MB?

I've never crapped on MB before, but its getting ridiculous the amount of love he's gotten here.... He hasn't really done much, the Prust singing and going big in the draft was his only really good moves. He's signing Desharnais and moen to ridiculous contracts, signed another small player who's aging in Briere and refused to give PK a long term deal last year that will cost us around 2M+ more on the cap now... We gotta build through the draft absolutely but if you guys actually pay attention to our prospect pool the only real guys were missing is gritty bottom 6 players (Crisp and DLR is all we have) Clifford upgrades this team now and would be a huge part of the bottom 6 in the future when we are contenders... But no lets not give up 1 godly pick for a guy we need

no, the rule is that if a player does not sign with montreal, it's because the GM decided not to sign him, not that the player chose not to sign with montreal.

UFAs have no right to chose where they sign.

He's not a UFA his RFA rights are up for trade and I didn't blame MB for not signing anyone...

Rumor was shot down. Let's create a Clifford thread, but since this one is so far off topic we can shut it down, too.
