Didn't he say the Habs would make a trade in 48 hours a few days ago and we acquired Sopel?
Throw in his other calls like the McCabe deal and all the NBA trades...this guy sounds legit.
In full he said Habs would make TWO trades within 72 hours (Sunday night is the deadline) He said one small and one big. The Sopel trade was about 24 hours in, so that's trade #1. Now there are 24 hours left in his trade window.
Yes and they also have Duchene who is taking a similar, if not better, path. They are clearly rebuilding around 2 players...Erik Johnson and Matt Duchene. They are not in a financial position to have over 20 million committed to 3 players and there isnt a chance Duchene or Johnson moves. Which leaves Stastny the odd man out.
How is it clear that they are building around two players exclusively?
And how are they not in a financial position to have over 20 million committed to 3 players? The salary floor would make such a thing entirely plausible.
Ummm, hell no. It's Statsny, he isn't worth anything near all that. Very good player sure.
Statsny is 25 years old is better offensively than Plekanec,but not as good defensively.
With Statsny Plekanec as our 1-2 punch for the next 3 years minimum would put us in a place we haven't been in a while. We'd have two scoring lines instantly as both Statsny and Plekanec don't need wingers to set up their own scoring chances. The proposals a little much, but having Statsny on our team would bring us to a whole new level.
