Pax is on maybe the best value-for-dollar contract in the NHL. Yeah, trade him immediately. Great call.

After reading this page I find it baffling that so many people think the Habs need another centre. They have too many centres as it is. Galchenyuk has to play centre next year. It is the next step for his development. Where the Habs are lacking is on the wing, the right side in particular.

trading a 40 goal scorer on a sweet deal for a prospect that hasn't played a game in the NHL?

Wrong. The quantity of average centres does not show strength, it just shows that they are below average at the most important forward position. If DD is your number one centre, you better be an ECHL team.

First of all DD has proven that he is lot more than an ECHL centre. He is a legitimate top 6. Obviously he is not a true number 1 centre but he is not the long term answer for a number 1 centre anyways. They are in the process of grooming the future number one centre who of course is Alex Galchenyuk. If he moves to centre next year, which in my opinion he absolutely should, it creates a log jam down the middle. That's not to say that if an opportunity arises to upgrade the centre position you don't look at it. You should always look to upgrade every position. But when you look at the make up of the forwards, the Habs are more likely to trade away a centre than acquire another one.

Ekblad would take years to get into the NHL?

Wow...

Again, Ekblad isn't going to take years to develop.

If that Toronto offer is real;

Kadri has 94 points in his last 126 games.
Pacioretty has 99 points in his last 117 games.

I'm not saying Kadri is worth Pacioretty, but the difference isn't Phanuef + 8th overall.

PS. I wouldn't trade for Ekbald either. He's going to be great, but not worth the price-tag.

To the original point, trading Pacioretty on the cusp of his prime and with one of the best contracts in the league makes absolutely no sense.

While I would be hesitant to trade Pacioretty, I would consider moving him and other assets to Pittsburgh for Malkin.

Not true. Tons of people agree that at some point, DD will need to be a winger IF he stays a Hab. And a guy like Plekanec could be a great asset in a trade. Which means only Galchenyuk and Eller as the C's of this team in the top 9.

I don't trade Pacioretty. But if you have to start consider it, I agree....you involve him in a package with PROVEN NHL'ers.

If I'm trading up to get a top 5 pick, it's for Dal Colle, Draisaitl, or Reinhart. I wouldn't be interested in losing what we would have to give up for Ekblad.

lol Pacioretty makes less than Gionta. We are rebuilding but not to that extreme. Pacioretty is still young and there is still many years left in his contract. Don't involve him in any trade ever.

terrible value for montreal, production/goal scoring wise pacioretty is one of the most valuable players in the nhl. were aiming to win with our current core, why would we trade our only top 6 LW?

Pacioretty hits 45 goals next year, will this quiet the crowd who continually criticize him?

I don't want to trade him. But I'm not sure why any of our players would be untouchable. You wouldn't even listen if a GM calls you?

The only way the Habs do that deal is if Pacioretty no longer wants to be a Hab. This move makes no sense for the team. We're a team on the cusp of being a contender that needs to improve scoring. Not gonna trade the teams top scorer for the potential of a future top pairing dman.

Obviously if someone offered Malkin we'd trade him, but the point is that Pacioretty should only be traded for a massive overpayment and we shouldn't actively be trying to trade him.

Yeah, let's continue making trade proposals to send our best (and still improving) winger to another team. You guys are ridiculous.

Also, you are not getting the number 1 pick for Max.
