Montreal-Philadelphia (proposal)

Montreal gets-Keith Primeau, Jeff Woywitka, and a mid-round pick

Philadelphia gets-Chris Higgins and Patrice Brisebois


Thoughts?

No point for the habs to trade Higgins......heck I would not even trade Higgins straight up for Primeau salary, and age wise. Higgins has a ton of upside and Montreal is building its team around young players anyways

How does this in any way shape or form benefit the Flyers?

Well...Primeau is an UFA after this season and Higgins and Woywitka are basically a wash. Brisebois for a mid round pick may not be out of the question...certainly not the worst Hab proposal put forth on these boards IMO. But, I have to agree that there isn't much immediate help in it for the Flyers.

Both teams get screwed for different reasons (obviously :clown: )

HABS

Higgins isn't going anywhere. He has all the qualities Montreal lacked for years (grit, 2-way game, work ethic, character) and is not more than a year away.

Habs have plenty of Ds. Woywitka could become a good 2-way Dman but nothing suggests he will be an upgrade over any of Markov, Souray, Hainsey, Komisarek or Rivet in a near future.

FLYERS

Brisebois on their D squad? Give me a break. It's one of the strongest in the league with the likes of Ottawa and Detroit. He would actually weaken it.

Primeau is their captain and an important checker. Might as well keep him while they still have a hope for the cup this year. Losing him would seriously compromise their chances.

VALUE

I think Higgins and Woywitka are close to a wash. Primeau however holds more value than Brisebois, but not much more for Montreal who are not a contender. It would be pointless to give anything of value for him as he will be a UFA in a year anyway. I'd do Brisebois for Primeau of course but why in hell would Philly do that? Not ridiculous value wise, but it is however if we talk about needs (a thing about 90% of the proposal makers here seem to avoid considering completely or only do so for one of the two teams involved).

Same response I give to any deal with bluechippers (or close to it) being dealt...


When was the last time you saw highly touted prospects being dealt in a deal for one another?
