Jordan Staal or Alex Galchenyuk

For the first time on L'antichambre Gaston said something that made me think. He said that we could have traded for J. Staal which would have fixed this teams center position for the next 10 years!!

Basically he said that our first is higher than carolina's.
Lars Eller = Brandon Sutter
Yannick Weber = Brian Dumoulin except that Weber actually has NHL experience so we should have won this deal no problem. What do you guys think? Who would you choose?

Also, Galchenyuk and Teuvo Teravainen where 1st and 2nd on Trevor Timmins' list. I wonder where Yakupov ranked on his list?

So what you're saying is that it's not actually "Staal or Galchenyuk" it's "Staal minus Eller and Weber or Galchenyuk". Right?

What Gaston haven't said is that Staal is one year away from being a UFA and words is that he wanted to play with his brother. We wouldn't have had any guarantee of him signing an extension with us. We couldn't managed to take that chance. The price was to high.

There's also no guaranty the Pens would have taken our package over Carolina's one. Sutter is a better player than Eller and he also fits better on the Pens line-up.

Of course. What Gaston is saying is that we had a better offer than carolina if we were to go after Staal.

Staal might fix the center position for 10 years, but Galchenyuk might fix the center position for 20.

That wasn't the choice.

It was the number 1 guy on our list (Galchenyuk) + + for Jordan Staal (with an unkown contractual status going forward)

For Staal to bolt one year later to Carolina. Great idea.

What we need is a real first line center, what J.Stall isnt and what Galchenyuk has the potential to be..

J.Stall is a very good second line center at best, what we already have in Plekanec!

Galchenyuk came for free, J. Stall might never be a reliable #1 center (nor Galchenyuk) and the price was pretty high : a young promising d-men, 8th overall pick, and a young established 2 ways center that could en up being as good as Jordan. There is no way i wanted the Habs to do that.

If Staal signed a long term contract before the trade, I think long and hard. But as it stands, not a chance. Carolina can take that chance because if Eric. MTL has nothing to assume he wouldn't leave after the season to become a UFA.

I would have also wanted their 1st rounder back since our package would have been better - and I doubt Pittsburgh would have liked that.

Can someone email Gaston and explain Staal wouldn't sign a 10 yr deal in Pittsburgh , then why would he sign 10 years in MONTREAL?


He would have been in Montreal 1 year , then left town!

Montreal would have gave up a 3rd overall and a bunch more for 82 games of Staal?


Gaston , time to wake up !

The reason Staal refused to sign the extension in Pittsburgh was because he apparently wanted to play with one of his brothers. That means he had one more year left and then was likely to sign either in Carolina or NY.
That's why Pittsburgh moved him to Carolina. So he would have solved our center issue for one season, not 10. After that he'd likely go join one of his bro.

And I'll take Galchenyuk+Eller+Weber over Staal.

Galchenyuk to me....he is younger, cheaper and first line center. Staal is more 2nd line center, maybe borderline 1st line center

Well maybe Bergevin could have traded for Mark Staal beforehand. Mark's not as expensive as Eric... That Galchenyuk+Eller+Weber for Jordan S. doesn't seem so stupid anymore buddy.

Of course not. I think most of the young swedes are absolutely great. It's just that people tend to overrate FEL and SEL.
