    I think Galchenyuk could thrive in a situation where he's not the sole driver of a line. He's never had the opportunity to play with a playmaker (Radulov briefly) and I think e would flourish.

    That said, his defensive awareness and general hockey iq is not great and I can see why CLB would keep Dubois. Also, Torts would eat him alive.

    Does anyone look at cap space?

    Then you don't know what debate means.

    I doubt CBus would be interested. Best bet is probably with the Islanders.

    Don't think the Jackets would do this deal. PLD has too much future potential to trade for a player who is trending down.

    If the Jackets want to boost their skill quotient even more, sure. However, there are too many red flags with Galchenyuk at the moment.

    I think it would make sense for Columbus as they are contender now and Galchenyuk is already ''there'' even if he needs confidence back. Mtl seems to start a french rebuild and PLD would make sense for them.

    As for the cap space, i would be interrested, as a habs fan, in taking Johnson's or Duby's contract to even it out. What piece would you need us to add to make it works?

    If you want Dubois you need to start with more than Galchenyuk as a centerpiece or be willing to add a lot of young right now value, not futures. I honestly don't see any way to make the money work. Columbus can't send Dubinsky because they are already thin at center ice. Jack Johnson doesn't help because his contract is expiring. Columbus may not want picks because their window is open. Columbus isn't looking for defense or wings. Can you send a real top 6 C on an ELC? If not, these teams aren't good trading partners.

    Galchenyuk is a super nice player, both I think the Jackets pass

    Galchenyuk is 23, PLD won't turn 20 until next June

    Dubois has really filled out. I was able to see him play Tuesday in Raleigh. The kid is built like a tank....
    I'm really exciting to watch him play for years to come in Columbus.

    This is a trade that would make more sense for Montreal because it favors Montreal.

    I don't think Columbus does this, at least not yet. They were really high on PLD on draft day and think he could be a 1C in the future. Why trade a possible future 1C for a guy who isn't as good at C as he is on the wing?

    This doesnt make sense at all for CLB if Galchenyuk cant play C.

    Also, neither of Dubi or Johnson are cap dumps, and wont be treated as such from CBJs persecptive.

    Commitment and good two way play is something Galchenyuk is lacking at the moment it seems. His confidence seems shattered. Entirely possible that Galchenyuk turns out to be the better player in the end, but at this point I just can't see how Cbus takes the risk in a ~lateral trade moving Dubois, not even with some added value. Most of the GM:s should know the situation so the value for Gally is not that good at the moment.
