Tremendous idea!

I just got an tremendous idea. Let's make a trade with Montreal.


To EDM:
Carey Price
Hal Gill
2010 3rd Rounder

TO MON:
Jeff Drouin-Deslauriers
Marc-Antoine Pouliot
Jean-Francois Jacques
Alex Plante
2010 2nd Rounder (From NAS)

In this way Montreal gets 4 players with french/canadian names that can help them in the future. And we got a potential franchaise goalie going forward with and an overpaid Stanley Cup winning defensive defensman.

Thoughts?

I hate the Habs but even I would feel sorry for them if they traded Price for that.

I could definitly consider that trade. I think that trade could benefit both parties, some worries though. Montreal are already a small team, but if Cogs and POS could get back on track this would really be a good deal.

There was a truth said about the fact that people in Quebec love their french named players, even if their name is the only thing french about them.

So M ace wants to ship out of Edmonton all the french Canadian players, and there is not even a tiny tinge of racism there?

Maybe all the black players in the league can be moved to the southern states. . .

Coming from Montreal, Price will have to be an overpayment. I'd consider someone like Schneider from Vancouver or Bernier from the Kings.

The idea was that maybe Price would be easier to take of Montreal's hands if we put a proposal that they couldn't say no to. So I put every french/canadian name that we have in the organisation in a proposal. And based on the fact that the Montreal fans are very high on players with french names this was the case. The same as when they aquired Benoit Poulit, it was like they have gotten Wayne Gretzky himself or that they always want to have Vincént Lecávaliér from Tampa. Believe me I really have no racism in me god d***. It is like kicking my teeth in when you say that..

Don't worry about it.

As much as some whiny groups WANT it to be, the French/English dynamic in Canada is nothing like the Black/White dynamic in the US.

Your proposal is fine, and anyone with a half-a-brain understood what you were going for.

Would MTL have any interest in taking Souray back?

I do not like the deal but this is not racism, all this says is Montreal likes French players and we all know this is true so don't say it is not and they might be interested. So a proposal to send them some players that they might be interested in how is this racism. I wish people would understand what racism really is and stop throwing it around when someone speaks about a specific group.

Thanks man!Because I'm from Sweden I don't know so much about how it is in the North America, more than what is seen on the news and what I read in papers. But I know about racism because we have had a lot of that in Sweden.

And one thing for sure is that I'm not a racist.

A few points:
  • even though Price has been a bit of a disappointment he's still going to fetch a lot more than what you're offering
  • Mtl are intrigued by FC players but not the ones you listed (OK, maybe JDD a bit)
  • Tambo's mancrush on Khabby precludes him from making a deal like this

Maybe you're right, but i know the fans a screaming after Price during every game and the fans are screaming after finding FC players. And still Gainey's shadow is on the organisation, I would believe that nothing is impossible.

Price is valuable, he isn't going for a bunch of ****** players no matter how many there are. Quality for quality. If you want Price Smid is coming back to Montreal.

And since french isn't a race do you guys mean bigotry?

Alright let's make a new proposal not involving only FC players:

To EDM:
Price
Subban
4th rounder

To MON:
JDD
Smid
Cogliano
O'Sullivan

Thoughts!
