There are so many things wrong with this sentence.

Ok, so the pick it yet to be determined, but it will be a late 7th......If Montreal thinks he has trade value then give your head a shake, your lucky to get a pick for him....Nothing to do with talent, but hes a primmadonna, and until he proves otherwise, nobody will give much of anything for him......Most teams would prefer to give some 18 year old kid a shot at developing from the 7th round, then take on a guy who seemingly dosen`t have what it takes to be an NHL player.

I think Sergei to Pittsburgh for a late pick would be a good opportunity for all 3 parties involved(Pens,Habs,Sergei)

habs will qualify him and will trade him and it won't be for your 7th or some garbage. he still has a high ceiling if put in the right situation.
he will get dealt as part of a package or an equal young reclamation project or a 2nd or 3rd...habs got a 4th for chipchura

Not at all. Your team will be on the golf course in 2 games.....unless you are a Pens fan.

Sorry I doubt that will happen, he really hasn't proven anything with 1st/2nd line minutes.

Team like the Oilers or Hawks be wise to take a flyer on him for a 3rd round pick

According to the OP, Sergei isn't practicing with his team during a Cup run and the management/coaching staff is sick of him. I'd say that's a pretty strong indication that they'll shop him at the draft for a pick or not offer a tender and let him leave via free agency.

As for Pittsburgh, it would make a lot of sense to part with a lower pick to bring him in and keep his rights but I doubt Shero does it. He hasn't exactly been keen on bringing in guys with character issues and if Montreal doesn't tender Sergei he'll go to the KHL.

I don't see Montreal tendering an offer to Sergei. A team may offer him a tryout contract or a minor league contract, but most likely he will wind up playing for the khl next year. I get tired of seeing his name pop up in every trade thread made by a habs fan trying to get rid of him when he has no trade value (or maybe even negative trade value)

2nd or 3rd......don`t hold ur breath buddy..
No team will give anything decent for a primmadonna.

I completely agree he has a high ceiling, but until he proves he can carry himself like a pro, on and off the ice, he has no trade value.
The fact that MTL is giving the defending champs a run for their money and don`t want him anywhere near the team......that speaks volumes.

I`ll say it again, MTL would be lucky to get a late pick for his rights.

Columbus has a Russian kid, Filatov, who is difficult, but promising. Why not bundle them? You have to have a translator, anyway. Two projects aren't really a lot harder to deal with than one and you better your chances. Columbus has thier own issues and might move a player for him.

Yeah, but Chipchura seems to enjoy playing and works hard for whatever her gets. Sergei...not so much.

Thats how I see it. Chipchura fit right in on the Ducks and worked hard for them and does what his coach wants. Everything I read about Sergei or when I've watched the Habs screams unmotivated and lazy. just my opinion though.

Them and Steve Kariya, Sean Pronger, Brent Gretzky.

The worst part is the Canucks had three of these guys at one point.

where do people get their facts? by the 08 playoffs he was playing with higgins and koivu on habs first line and playing 1st line pp minutes with markov on D...
his attitude and sense of entitlement 'degraded' in the last year (like price, higgins etc) and his work ethic suffered. he IS a good player, he was Belarus's best player in the Olympics, and while you will laugh at that, it says a lot since most of their competition was the best in the NHL

um what did the habs get for grabovsky? should i remind you?
this kid is younger, bigger and potentially better.
habs also had problems with gabbo and seem to get some assets back for him

He'll be a UFA. I can't see any team giving up assets to take on SK.

I guess he's kind of in a similar situation to Grabovski, so i'm sure they can find a sucker (thanks Fletch, for nothing) somewhere to hand out a 2nd round pick for him.

SK and a 6th for Ryan Shannon and a 7th

I am trying my best not to be a homer but I would love for Ottawa to take a chance on this kid. Everyone seems to forget he is 23 and he still has upside. In Ottawa the influences around are far less than Montreal so it will be hopefully more focus on hockey. Shannon serves as a good 13th foward who fortunately is cheap.

If you consider SK's value I would say it is fair value on both sides unless a Montreal fan wants no part of Shannon for a 6th and would rather SK leave for nothing.

Just something to consider
