John Erskine to MTL

I think MTL needs to get bigger on defence. Erskine could be a really good fit with the habs.

He's big and strong (6ft 4inch 215lb) can clear the front of the net, block shots, hit and not scared of a fight.

He's 32 years old.. and still has 2 years left after this year is done to he's contract ( just under 2m cap hit)


So caps fan is he avaible? and what kind of return are you looking for??

also, how is he defensively? The games I've seen he seems pretty solid but i don't get to see him play on a regular basis.

I'm hoping that a 3rd round pick in this years draft could get it done?? fair??

I'd see him costing a 1st... I mean, the Caps seem to like him, he has a leadership role, they re-signed him to a nice deal, they moved other guys out... I don't see him as "available", therefore. Obviously would be a fit for the Habs... but if you had to "overpay" to the degree it would probably take, I don't see it as being remotely worth it. Habs will have to find their toughness elsewhere, IMHO.

This is the best and most hes ever played for the caps. I dont understand why he was scratched for what seems like three years.
