No regardless of how **** those players are on the habs. Our first is not on the table unless it's for a player definitely higher than vanek's caliber. (No disrespect to Buffalo fans, i love vanek). Our organization needs a change of direction, and Vanek will not provide that. Sorry. (also, if its to ninja-pick galchenyuk, keep dreaming)

I'd be hesitant to take that deal for Vanek straight up depending on where your pick ends up. With our first in there, not a chance in hell.

Not a chance from the Habs. The way our pick looks like it'll end up we lose this deal big time.

I like the draft pick, but not any if the other pieces. An additional 3 million going to Buffalo while giving the best player (AINEC).

You guys know that Buffalo will be picking around 6 most likely, right? That's an insane price for Buffalo to pay to move up a few spots.

Well, since all of those players from the Habs suck, the trade would be Vanek and Buffalo's 1st for Montreal's 1st. LOL. Wow, great deal for Buffalo. How bout they thrown in Miller, Myers, and the rest of their draft too, just for the hell of it?

Markov's one of the best D in the league when he's healthy, wait until he's back before judging him.
Leblanc is 21, way too soon to judge him.
Bourque isn't that great, but he is a 20-goal scorer.

Rather draft a potential franchise centre than acquire a 1st line winger. Consider we have Pacioretty, Cole, Bourque, Gionta for the foreseeable future and Leblanc(Though, in the trade) and Gallagher in the pipeline we have a ton of winger depth (granted, none as skilled as Vanek Pacioretty being the closest) we need a centre.

I'm sure Sabres don't want to trade Vanek unless it's for an upgrade.

Once he's healthy we better hurry up and judge him before the Tim Connolly of D men gets hurt again.

Tim Connolly isn't even in the same league as Markov.. maybe Lafontaine would be a better analogy

Markov has no value at all to Buffalo. I'd take Ehrhoff everyday of the week over Markov given cap hit, age, and past injury problems.

Buffalo has no need for the other pieces, and won't move up in the draft at the cost of Vanek.

I don't blame you. On the other hand if we get to draft Grigorenko with our pick as a Hab i wouldn't do the trade either. We need a big center over Vanek.

Well I'm glad it seems like everyone agrees, this trade doesn't do much for either team. No offense, other than Price, there is no other player from the Habs I would want. I mean, they have some nice players, but none that are elite level talent in the NHL (except Price).

Whatever, i wouldn't want Ehrhoff if i could have a healthy Markov. and if he isn't healthy he's not going anywhere.

Vanek only moves in a deal for a center that other teams deem as untouchable.

Just like how Kassian and Hodgson were untouchable before Monday.

So Grigorenko wouldn't be an untouchable type C?

Nothing against Vanek but if we don't have a big C for him, his talent would be wasted here like floaterelli's was..

It's simple:

ELC vs. Cap Hit = ELC every time with our roster

No, he wouldn't. He's not Crosby or Lemieux, a prospect so can't-miss that the team drafting the player wouldn't even consider the offer.

I would not deal Vanek to same division unless it would be massive overpayment and clearly this isn't.
