Edmonton | Montreal



----- Edmonton | Montreal-----

To Edmonton

Carey Price
1st (13-17th Overall)


To Montreal

Dustin Penner
2nd (31st Overall)


Salary is very close, can probably be made post-olympics, if not maybe a salary dump like Paul Mara could be added.

IMO both players have very similar questions, are they the real deal? Can they maintain consistency?

Both have shown flashes of being exceptional players, & IMO both players fill holes in each others line-ups.

I believe this trade also makes sense because Penner is a player entering his prime, and the Canadiens are certainly not rebuilding. Price is still young, and despite his struggles, could be an anchor for the future.

Oh god no. NO no no no.

Habs say no to any offer the Oiler fans make because they are just plain terrible.

Habs and Oilers are not trade partners. Penner still hasn't proven to be worth his salary. Lets wait to see what his point totals are by seasons end.

This must be a typo. You mean the Canadiens get the 1st...right?

I'd just like to say that I really like the way you format your proposals.

How close they are in terms of value and team needs is another story, but they always look nice.

Apparently Montreal does this to help Edmonton rebuild to a respectable team where UFA's might actually play there....

The Salary really isn't close. Penner makes $4.25M, Price's cap hit (not salary) is $2.2M. Montreal also cannot afford to take on another significant salary at forward unless it's a center. I wouldn't mind getting Penner, but he makes too much and has 8 points since Christmas.

The trade doesn't work because it can't be made, regardless of the value.

I wouldn't do it straight up let alone add a 1st for a 2nd rounder.

I don't know how you can say Price is worth more than Penner.

Penner is a very rare bird given his skills and size. As I stated, he is entering his prime, is having a career season on the worst team in the NHL.

Perhaps remove the picks.

I meant salary is close as far as the Canadiens being able to pick up the salary.

If Penner is such a rare bird why don't you hold onto him instead of pawning him onto the Habs?

I would like to keep Price and do not want another overpaid forward.

Where would he play? Cammalleri and Pouliot have the top 2 line LW spots locked up. He's certainly not worth Price given our needs.

Price is worth more than Penner?! You habs fans are ridiculous.. he's almost lost his job to Halak and he is extremely inconsistent.. he's simply a headcase.

Penner makes $4.25M/year and we have nowhere to put him if a trade was actually made. Hence, he's not worth Price because we'd trade an asset the Oilers obviously sorely need, for one we don't.

You Oilers fans are ridiculous. See? I can generalize too.

Yes he is.

Halak going on a hot streak dosen't mean Price lost his job...

Inconsistent? Ya he is just like every other player in the league under 23-24.

Headcase Do you know him personally? how do you know he's a headcase?

This would be like Montreal offering A.kostitsyn for your first pick. would you do it?

No. Just no. We have no idea what that first will be. Could be our standard mid-round pick or we could fall apart and have a top 10 pick.

If he's simply a head case then why do you want him?

TO put it into perspective Penner is inconsistent and overpaid. Why do we take on his contract when we have to re-sign Plekanec in the off-season. Pleks is far more important to the Habs than Penner would ever be.

Face it - the Oil are not good trade partners. There is nothing (other than your 1st round pick) that remotely interests me on the Oilers roster.

No. Price is getting traded unless there is your 1st pick involved.

I don't think it's right to give up on 22 year old goalies. You guys are all acting like he is a complete bust. Penner is good but he's overpaid and not worth Price. I wouldn't trade a 1st rounder for Penner either.

It was a Habs fan proposing that.
