Hard to say. Again, it's not in our philosophy to do so. It's fun to have a 21-year old superstar, but some people might argue that 4 1st rounders would/could make us a better, deeper team (If you think about it we could give the equivalent of Max Pac, Price, Kostitsyn and another 1st rounder). I understand the 4 picks could be Chipchura's, Fischer's, etc. But, being very confident in their scouting team, it's a risk the Habs never take.

The other option would be to sign Richards, but I wouldn't throw big money at him.
It's not a vendetta, but he hates rushing young players, Desharnais isn't ready for #2 C action IMO. Eller maybe, but I'd rather still have him on the 3rd line for another year.

Price was 5th overall and Akost was 10th.

With Stamkos, we shouldn't finish any less than 20th.

But Pacioretty was 22nd, and PK Subban was 43rd. I don't usually overrate draft picks like most people on HF, but 4 first rounders seems a bit too much; it's not the type of deal PG would do. And what if, God forbids, Stamkos gets a serious injury?

Stamkos can score but he was brutal in the play-offs. Youre handcuffing yourself in terms of the first round and salary with him. I wouldn't do it.

I would do it if we sign in the lower compensation tier (1st, 2nd and 3rd round picks), but tampa would just match it. Four 1sts is excessive.

I woudln't do it either, the salary could screw up your cap and you can't expect to draft many impact players with no first round pick for 4 years. People don't seem to realize it's a team game, it can be easy to shut down 1 player.

The problem with acquiring Stamkos isn't the 4 picks, its the cap hit that you would have to make to get Tampa not to match it. Even if you front loaded the contract, with the new ownership, they would likely see it as an investment and match it.

He was a 21 year old in his first playoffs. I think he'll get used to it. Guys that score 50 goals don't come along often. I'd give up 4 1sts any day. It's still just talk, it's almost 0% that he leaves Tampa.

Not to mention the cap hit you would have to make to get Stamkos to sign it in preference to other offers in the first place.

It's 4 1st AND $8m+ per for years to come. I wouldnt do that for Crosby or Ovy to be honest.

For players like Crosby/Ovechkin/Stamkos, I would do it without any hesitation. With these type of players, you will draft low anyway. Also, our drafting sucked in the 1st round.

Tampa would snap match $8m. They'd probably even match $10 fairly quickly. You need to get above $10 for them to not match. They'll never be a cap ceiling team, so being overpaid by a couple million won't hurt them like it would most other teams.

For Stamkos, I'll do the maximum (12 years/ 12 millions per). Sure he will be overpaid, but it is worth it. Salary ca say hi, but we can fit him in our line up and we are definitely a contender.

That would ruin this team for 12 years.

Without a goalie like Price, you'd never have a chance at a cup anyway.

With out draft picks you run a serious risk of depleting your farm stock and running your entire organization into the ground. If the player you get gets injured a la Neely, Lindros, kariya etc then you've destroyed your team for a generation. Look what trading Roy did for us without having lost 4 1st.

Those players are tempting but not worth it IMO.

If they'll never be a top cap spending team then how can they afford 2 $10m players and fill out the rest of the roster with NHLers and still be comparative? They can't so they can't match a $10M offer.

They'd find a way to dump Vinny. It wouldn't be that hard. Actually looking at his contract, if Eller doesn't start to develop, in a year or two, we should trade for him.

Over $70M over 10 years for a 25 goal scorer? I'll pass.
I don't know if you're being glib about being able to trade that kind of a contract for a player as damaged and washed up as Vinny now is JUST when it's about to start.

Serious injuries? They happened to Maurice Richard, Gordie Howe, Bobby Orr, and dozens of other superstars. No one is immune. If you're insecure, then fill your roster with inconsequential players who can easily be replaced,

In a couple of years, it won't be $70m for a 25 goal scorer, it'll be like 7 years for like 25 million. I didn't do the math but picking up the end of his contract is value for your dollar.

Do the math, it's not that attractive. Add to that his past injuries and I can't see him being attractive.
