- He's familiar with a lot of our players, including proven chemestry with Plecks
- Proven playoff performer
- He's a UFA at years end
- The cost of getting him in a trade would likely be very low (probably only a mid round pick)
- He really can't be worse than Kostitsyn or Gomez right now

I realize you can make an equally long list of his shortcomings but I've said it before, I'll say it again: this is the definition of a low risk, high reward move.

If Kovalev comes back motivated for a playoff run, than we're laughing.

You know it has at least been discussed.

If Ottawa will take something like a 4th or a 5th, we'd be crazy not to make that trade.
Very interesting points. Also remember the fact that the current Plekanec is a better player than the Pleks who centered him in the past.
That entire Senators team is in shambles, everyone's playing below expectations and probably without confidence. Low risk high reward indeed. Give him one last shot with the Habs? Why not? And I'm sure many of would bust out our old Kovalev t-shirts.

Eklund

* There has been some talk the Habs and Phoenix are discussing a deal which could land Scott Gomez in Arizona. It's early on, but it's possible.

I can't see Stewart been available, if colorado trade him they are crazy IMO,well unless it's big time overpaymen, but I can't see habs giving Eller, Tinordi, leblanc ++.

lol I mentioned in the Gomez vs. Desharnais thread on the main board that Scott would fit well in Phoenix. Their constant speed and forecheck combined with their need for a playmaking centre makes it seem like a perfect fit. But I wouldn't want to go in the playoffs with Desharnais as the #2 option after Plekanec.

True

Martin Hanzal perhaps

I wonder, does the Habs brass really think they have the pieces to win a cup this year with the core they have?

To me I think they are missing too many pieces to make too much of a drastic change. With Markov and Gorges out you are missing a 1A and a 2A defenseman. We can deal with Gomez being subpar if those two are in, but think about it really, what are we going to give away to get the pieces we need? The Habs management isn't going to mortgage the future on a team that is missing it's top all-around, and top shut-down defenseman.

Be patient people, the best is yet to come. This is not the year to seek help at the deadline. We've already made our moves early in the year with the Wiz, Lapierre, and O'Byrne.

I for one, really hope Gauthier does absolutely nothing. The team will sink or swim with what we have. Cammy will be back soon, as will Darche. Gill it may be a bit longer, but Picard has filled in ok over these last games, however against teams like Calgary and Vancouver coming up I do admit I am more concerned. That being said, here's hoping Gill will make his way back sooner than later.

If Gauthier is not looking for a rental player than this is all hogwash, however I do believe this year is wayyyy to risky to go for a rental player. Gauthier isnt stupid anyone he acquires at this years deadline will be with the habbies for awhile if it costs a significant return.

Im hoping for Thorburn + Penner would be ideal.

Thorburn for a late pick
Penner for Akost + 1st


Pacioretty - Plekanec - Gionta
Penner - Desharnais - Cammalleri
Pouliot - Gomez - White
Moen - Halpern - Thorburn

Markov - Gorges
Wizniewski - Spacek
Subban - Gill

ex: Weber, pyatt

But I think they really need their centers, especially an experienced one that is better (on paper at least) than Eric Belanger... wouldn't mind Doan or Jovanovski though

There were rumours last year that the Habs were interested in Kyle Turris...

Still, IF Gomez (and that's a big IF) was to be traded to Phoenix of all places, major salary would have to head back to Montreal as they're not the richest team. JovoCop is a pending UFA...

If this is true, I'd be the happiest guy around !

I also don't like the idea of going in the playoffs with DD as our no2 centre (even if I think he could manage, he's still not proven at all), but you don't pass on the opportunity to get rid of Gomez.

I'd try to get Arnott as a backup plan...

I honestly would target Hanzal. Call me crazy, and yes maybe I am but I'd package Gomez and try to acquire Hanzal who hasn't done much for Phoenix and is coming up on his 5th year in the NHL. He is 23, 6'5 2 way center with alot of offensive skill, back when he was being drafted he was called a game breaker, that could change the flow of a game with either a big hit, solid defensive play, or flashing his offense.

Having been a lack luster result for the Coyotes, and them being Buyers I'd offer them Gomez, and a pick, maybe a prospect depending on how open they are to the idea.

Think of it, A 6'5 2-way player with speed and potential on a team with one of the best 2-way players in the game? (Plekanec).

Cammalleri-Plekanec-Hanzal
Pouliot-DD-Patches/Eller


Hanzal would be a huge acquisition for both the immediate and distant future for Montreal, and we could properly groom him into a capable 70-80 point center. He has the skill set to be just that good, he just needs to put it together and watch a real 2 way forward at work.

Gomez, Kristo, and a pick for Hanzal, and I think they would be listening.

What is too good to be true? The dreams of one poster in HF, yes you are right.

Eklund only said Phoenix and the Habs were discussing Gomez, he didn't say Hanzal.

Gomez has a bit extra value to them because his cap hit is higher then his actual salary for the duration of his contract, thus they can get to the cap floor without actually spending the cap on salaries.
