Montreal needs some grit in the top 6 not as a rental and not an older player we are willing to pay anyone for this

A guy who can score, hit and isn't a defensive liability

Anyone is available to add except:
Galchenyuk
Price
Subban
Patches
Tinordi
Gallagher
Prust

Apart from that ask for a reasonable combination of whoever you want for the player that fits the need

Why would Prust be untouchable but Beaulieu movable

Habs are not in a position to move their top specs right now.

Prust fills the need and it's not just moving them for a run its strengthen a very weak position

Montreal will not be moving Beaulieu + for a PF. Our offense looks fine as is for now and we can always reassess in the offseason. Montreal is in no position in the long run to be moving our top prospect not in the NHL.

I'd like to see Montreal get Couturier? Where he is struggling to score, Philly may not be patience enough to develop him.

Maybe Leblanc? Reduces the sting of losing him as they get a center prospect

Problem is that he's a center... A position we are already stacked in who's place does he take?

It looks like Couturier is the new Lecavalier. I do not understand why our fanbase like him so much while we already have good centers in Eller/Galchenyuk/Plekanec.

I'd give up Beaulieau and Leblanc for Couturier easily, but generally speaking, I think Couturier is overrated and not worth most of the proposals that Flyers fans offer.

This is ridiculous. Couturier is easily the most overrated player on these boards. He's suffering from a sophmore slump of a season and has yet to show any offensive potential. He had just one good series against the Pens and that is all he has accomplished.

If his last name was Smith, not one Habs fan would be interested in him. given the fact that we are set down the middle, why would we overpay for a player that we do not need???

I agree completely but he is an upgrade on Eller and we can potentially move Eller for a good winger

Did you not watch last night's game? To use Therien's words "Eller was phenomenal"! Eller is a better player than Couts right now. That's not to say that Couts will eventually surpass him, but there is no need for Couturier. None at all...

Why move Eller? He's finally starting to show serious ability.

DD is cheap and will likely remain cheap. Why not play out this season and see whats available in the offseason? Last i checked we were doing pretty good in the standings!

If we move Beaulieu I would be surprise if it for couts ... My gess is that if he leave it will be for a good winger !!

There not many good puck mover like Beaulieu that our close to be ready for the nhl ! I'm pretty sure a team like Colorado would love him or even Edmonton or Philly or St. Louis just to name a few !!

Beaulieu as size , grit , high IQ and put up point ... I wouldn't move him unless we get something we can't refuse !!

Bealieu and Tinordi are the future of our blueline. Markov only has one or two good years left. If anything we should look at trading Diaz once he returns and re-establishes himself.

I think we should keep Eller to. A coupla simple grit pick-ups for the play-offs would be nice. Then will sign Clarkson and Smid in the off-season.

I'm happy with the team they have goign forward if they can get healthy before the playoffs.

However, if Tinordi can't bring a mean streak to the bottom pairing I'd be interested in finding a defensive defenseman to kill penalties and provide some grit.

I like it going forward to. The depth is impressive. If Price plays up to his potential in the play-offs, I think we could surprise.

what you mean there's no room at center for Coots?
Coots is obviously going to take Pleky's place.. and IF EVER
he doesn't why can't he play winger until Pleky or DD gets traded?
Sorry if you maybe don't agree with this but Cooter would be a lot more usefull
then Pleky or DD at center. maybe not this year but starting the next and the rest
to come he will. Trust me if Bergevin could get Coots for Beaulieu and Leblanc
you can be sure that either Pleky or DD is getting traded..
who wouldn't make Cooter play over Pleky and DD. Especially when your missing
size and brute talent up front at Center?
this year yea maybe Pleky and DD will be more effective than Cooter.
but if we talk for the future(starting next year) Cooter will be more effective.
He's 20 years old. can you imagine what our top 3 at center will be?
Chucky, Cooter, Eller, Dumont.
tell me that isn't going to be better than
DD, Pleky, Chucky and Eller...

For what we need, there is no reason to move Beaulieu.

We could probably move Kristo and Leblanc with a 1st to get Clowe, Murray, Petrecki and a 2nd. Clowe and Murray are the exact pieces we need for our Cup run.

We do not need Couturier. Not now, not ever. Eller is already better, Galchenyuk is better, Plekanec is better, DD is better. Right NOW. Will Couturier get better? Yes. Will he be better soon enough to make the difference we need this season? No. As was posted by someone else, if Couturier were called Smith or Krivachuk we would not be having this asinine discussion.

If you want to move Beaulieu + to the Flyers, aim for Simmonds. At least that way we get something we need for this and future seasons. We do NOT NEED Couturier. We need to get a couple of pieces so we can win the Cup this year...and be ready to make continual runs at trying to win it in the future. We should not be giving up what it would cost to get a center when we are well stocked at that position.

what in the world are you blathering about? Habs are going to break the bank for Sean Couturier and his 7 pts and -10?
with desharnais, plekanecs, white, eller and galchenyuk all playing very well for a 1st place team and we're living in the future?
ALL 5 of those centers are 30 or under 30, 26, 24, 23 and 19.

and how do you know he'd make that trade? leblanc was playing well before his sprained ankle and Beaulieu is the habs best offensive Dman prospect - and like couturier, both are 1st rounders too.

I like couturier but can we stop talking about him like he's the second coming of Christ - on a team that's doing well right now and already has lots of nice young players?
