Roman Polak to Montreal

What would it take from Montreal to get this guy in Montreal?

He would add size and toughness on Montreal's back end.

Subban-Gorges
Polak-Diaz
Markov-Emelin
Bouillon

That would be a very solid defense for next year.

I'd prefer a Greek Ukrainian to be a honest.

More than you'd be willing to give up for him.
We have no interest in trade Polak; it would take an irresistible offer to make us bite.

We pretty much have our defense squared away but we lack depth on the right side after Petro/Shatt/Polak. Just looking at team needs, we are good on defense, goal tending and wings which leaves a center spot. We have Backes/Berglund but we need a first line guy who can put up points to go with them. The reason I listed all this is because the only asset that would fit the description is Galchenyuk and you certainly arent going to trade him for a something based around Roman Polak. His actual value is probably a mid/late first but the only way trading him for draft picks makes the blues better is if someone completely overpays which you also most likely aren't willing to do. A long explanation for me pretty much saying sorry I dont think it will work.

I thought that with Pietro, Shattenkirk, JayBo, Jackman, Russell and Cole that Polak could be available.

Can you give an offer that you would accept? Realistically.

There isn't a realistic one.

We only have 3 NHL RH defensemen. We have extra LH with Cole or Russell possibly being available. Pietrangelo, Shattenkirk and Polak are our only RH NHL guys. The Blues main weakness is #1 center. I just don't see anyone trading a #1 center for Polak so there is pretty much no reason for us to trade him.

Why would we trade him without filling a need?

We can give a 2nd line centre(Desharnais+pick/prospect) or Eller if you add.

There isn't much of an incentive for us to mess with our defense. When it comes to centres, it looks like we'll be signing Jori Lehterä for next season, so there is no point unless we are getting someone that is an upgrade over what we currently have.

Fair enough. No need to trade since we dont have the players to fill a need.

He's the highest forward we've drafted in 20+ years and he's doing fairly well for himself.

I wouldn't be willing to move Polak for him, but he's a good player that the Blues fans invested themselves into while he was here.

Unfortunately many of them do. I never was that high on him.
