    He’s a busted flush though. Trade him for 40 cents on the dollar

    Yes, soon to be 24. If you insisting he should be part of our young core who grows together I agree. However, Like I said, I would trade him because I don't see him re-signing with us and I hate that 3 year deal.

    I don't agree. He's not a bust and he's going through a rough stretch as a young player. I say trade him but only if the return was right.

    Yes it is, unless you dig into my posting history and discover that I’ve been a Galchenyuk backer for years.

    I want him traded for his own sake more than anything. The politics in Montreal will ensure we’ll never see the best of him.

    Knowing what we know today.... Where does Galchenyuk get taken? Top 5 or top 10?

    Yes, Correct again. Drouin is signed from age 22-27 while Galchenyuk is signed from age 23-25

    Haven't heard any news lately. I suspect he will start skating in a week or two and return to the AHL for a few games in the new year. I doubt we put him straight onto our Habs roster and we would want him to gain his confidence back again.

    I'd take him first and hire a decent coach.

    I doubt you would take him 1st knowing what we know today, even if you had a chance to hire Babcock.

    What is it do we know actually?

    That he is a great talent , already scored 30 in one season.

    I wish we would have let him play and learn center form the get go though

    I still take him before the Defensemen you named

    He has hit 30 goals, but there are a bunch of problems with his game. Those defenceman go ahead of him every time and it’s not even close. Reilly or Lindholm next to a Shea Weber would fill a huge need for us and be much more important then a guy whose been labelled a winger here. You also have a guy like Parayko who id drop Weber for in a second. You are more then entitled to feel the way you do. I personally would make a strong argument for a few others. I have Galchenyuk hovering in and around 10th overall that year. 8 of the top 10 picks in that draft were defenders so I’m not surprised we’ve seen so many good defenders come out of it.

    Nah.. It was the right move at the time. Players had tuned him out especially Price.

    I feel Bergevin could've had the same fate this season had they lost 9 or 10 games in a row.

    Who's in and who's out when our forwards are healthy? Where do we put Byron, DLR, Scherbak, or even McCarron if he plays better and pushes for a spot? Good problems to have but I'm curious to see how this plays out.

    Where do Byron, DLR, Scherbak, McCarron fit?
    Galchenyuk / Drouin / Lehkonen
    Patch / Danault / Shaw
    Hudon / Pleky / Gallagher
    Deslauriers / Froese / Carr

    Lets say we trade Patch and Pleky for futures ... Where do you put Scherbak and McCarron?
    Galchenyuk / Drouin / Lehkonen
    Hudon / Danault / Gallagher
    Byron / DLR / Shaw
    Deslauriers / Froese / Carr

    We certainly don't have top end talent but we have solid depth. Decisions are going to have to be made here with our current roster and projected roster for next year.
