Last night on Sportsnet Connected, there was a Sources Say segment where John Shannon mentioned specifically that Dale Tallon was asking for 2 #1's each for Stephen Weiss and Bryan McCabe. Now I realize that what you ask for and what you get are 2 different things, but Weiss hasn't even played in the playoffs. I don't know how to add the link, sorry.

L.A is dangling Schenn .... I wonder if we couldn't put something together that may fit their needs. A.K , Gomez etc...

Apparently they are close to making a deal with Edmonton for Hemsky.

I think it would take Plekanec to get Schenn out of LA.

Well, I consider Pleks to be quite a bit more of a player than Hemsky, so it would be interesting.

I heard those names for Richards, anyways don't think they would move those guys for Plekanec or Gomez and Plekanec shouldn't be going anywhere, we need him

In 5 years, I have never, ever seen Eklund get a habs "rumor" right. Ever.

How he is still considered legit is beyond me. It just doesn't make sense. I feel like I'm taking crazy pills.

Is there a reason as to why we allow him to be posted and not others? This is not a bashing post, I really want to know why we allow this guy to be posted.

Who knows, but this question is better off being posed to an admin or Buffaloed himself. This thread is for discussing rumors only.

Schenn and Simmonds if being dangled for a top player will not be for Richards as Lombardi wants a player under contract or a RFA pending contract, he isn't parting with that talent for a rental in the same conference that is for sure.

In reality it should only take AK, Eller, and our first this year or next to get Schenn and Simmonds.

I don't know why anyone who give a lot to get Richards... the guy's a UFA and has a concussion... he might miss several weeks with that type of injury.

Schenn is a stud... it's going to take an established star player to get him.

AK < Simmonds
Eller =/< Schenn

+ 1st wouldn't be enough.

In fairness to Eklund, not many rumours in the past 5 years involving the Habs have ever been right.

As for your question, I don't have an answer for that as we (mods) don't really have a say in who is considered "legit" and who isn't.

So until this situation is changed, if ever. He's considered legit, and there really is nothing we as posters can do about it.

Too bad Cammy didn't work out in LA or I'd be up for packaging him in exchange for Simmonds and Schenn.

In reality you're wrong.

AK has limited value. Eller also has limited value. And our first is likely in the teens of a weak draft.

Schenn alone is probably "worth" that package, but LA wouldn't bite since they'd get better offers elsewhere.

OMG the french media trashes him every game and the little followers go bahahaha !
AK has probably more pure talent than any player in the Habs lineup

How many years have we been hearing that? At some point he needed to put down the Shish-Taouks and display that talent consistently, but that ship has sailed.

You can have all the hockey talent in the world, but having the hockey sense of a mule will pretty much limit you to 40-45 points a year.

Cause I really need to two guys on RDS to tell how bad Kostitsyn is. He could have all the talent in the world, he should trade some for some heart. Guys with that much talent don't miss open nets
