The important thing here is to drop DD somewhere with his salary ...

Per 98,5fm (Martin McGuire), Bergevin was accompanied by four scouts in EDM & VAN

Doesn't say much, but maybe the changes could happen sooner than we think.

I wouldn't mind seeing him grab Asham off of waivers at this point.

Girardi would be a good target if the Rangers keep on losing in the next few games... But they might want to hold on to him until the trade deadline to pump up his value, and at that point Emelin and Murray should be back...

To the one person suggesting trading Pacioretty or Gorges + Beaulieu/2nd for Girardi though...

At this point, the only roster forwards I'd move are DD and Briere. I don't see MB moving Briere, and I dont see any teams taking DD.

Could Desharnais end up in Dallas? He really has a hard time to produce this year... not only that, we have enough centers for a couple of years (Galchy, Eller, Plekanec, Brière, Prust, White, Bournival, Dumont, etc.).

In Dallas, the only center that produces is Tyler Seguin. Could Erik Cole need his buddy from Montreal and vice-versa?

Maybe Montreal would take Trevor Daley, Goligoski or Ryan Whitney in exchange. Now, I don't exactly know what the conditions of this trade would be, but could that be a good base? Montreal could add actually!

Thank you!

I think a #2 D to play with Subban would jump us up a few notches. It's a glaring hole right now, one of the few glaring holes on this team. He needs to be a physical, safe, steady player who can play on the penalty kill. Someone like Hamhuis (I know he's struggling right now though). Maybe Coburn, Edler types. Just throwing names out.

LD - Subban
Markov - Emelin
Gorges - Diaz

Bouillon/Tinordi/Beaulieu

is pretty good. Good enough possibly to do well in the playoffs.

Friedman mentioned in his 30 thoughts today that Bergevin was shopping for a d-man but elected to give Tinordi and Beaulieu more ice-time instead

Because we're short of fourth liners?

I could definitely see Despres being moved, looks like Bortuzzo has passed him on their depth chart plus Pit have so many young dmen.

If the Habs do make a move and give up any assets, hopefully it will be for a player on the rise, draft picks for fill in guys like Sopel, Mara etc. are wastes of assets, imo.

If Després comes Leblanc goes in that deal.

Even when Emelin will be back , we need another top 4. MB should target a big strong muscular guy. We have enough kids , we need man now. Someone who can look at our small and more fragile players and tell them everything gonna be alright. When your season is in shambles , the pression can be very ruff and nothing boost your confidence more than a manly hug from a confident big guy.

Despres would be a fun acquisition. I remember how I got laughed at last year when I proposed a trade centered around Jason demers and David Desharnais.


Yeah... anybody not doing that trade now?

Speculation about what the Habs might be doing begins at approx. 06:17 of the tape.

McGuire talks about the 4 scouts the Habs brought with them to Edmonton and Calgary as well as all of the Habs' front office hockey personnel. He's speculating that the Habs are trying to project how to slot Tinordi, Beaulieu and Bournival throughout the year, in what he terms as a transition year.

If you trade for Bogosian, Beaulieu or Tinordi is probably part of the package.

ESPN radio said Marc Staal is available. Then again ESPN is American what do they know about hockey.

I could see Leblanc being moved, he has fallen down the depth chart. Pens will probably want draft pick(s) if they make a move. Could depend whether they keep Maata past 9 games.

Probably looking at where the young players are at this point and where they can fit the rest of the year...sort of like an extended training camp. Parros, Murray and Emelin will be back in the next 3 or 6 weeks so they have to know where the kids are before then.

Demers makes little sense for the Habs, another puck mover.

Yeah, that's what I gathered. The 4 scouts in attendance wasn't the biggie, but the fact that all of the Habs front office hockey people were there with them, which is always great fodder for speculation.

We can't even play Tinordi when we have 3 defensmens injured and we're talking about getting a D who's in the exact same place in his development?

Some of these proposals make no sence.

Did you watch the last few games with Tinordi? He's not sitting because there's not room. He's sitting because he has sucked.

I'd be more comfortable playing Despres over Tinordi. Not really the same place in their developmental curve. I'd also probably play him over Bouillon,drewiske, and Murray. You're not gonna get guys in their prime, too expensive and we don't have the assets for that just yet. And we don't need any more injury prone, over the hill vets. Trading replaceable depth to take a chance on youth is what the habs should be doing.
