    Bjustad is not a 2nd line center. His production is on par with Danault and he'll be 26 this summer. You may be thinking Borgstrom.

    If I were you I'd ask Bergevin to refund you the money you paid to go take his seminar Marc Bergevin Reveals His Secrets: How to Build A Stanley Cup Winner In 10 Easy Years. Was it presented by Evenko?

    Bjustad is not a 2nd line center. You wanna pull a mini Drouin trade?

    Bergevin said PK wasn't getting traded and he was trained by Tallon.

    Lol at Danault being equal to Bjustad:laugh:. Sure, like a 6"6 center with still untapped potential is better than an overrated 3rd liner. Please people, i like Danault, but don't tell me you wouldn't want Bujstsad centering your second line.

    I've proposed this trade a few times.

    Gives the Habs a good future piece and a center (now playing wing, i know) who could bump Danault down to the 3rd line where he belongs. He fills a vacancy. A little untapped potential there with Bjugstad ... being on wing and having injuries in the past. Decent cap hit, big body, right handed shot.

    Bjugstad is a 3rd liner just like Danault. No need to trade for him when Danault can fit that bill just fine imo.

    Learn to read. I didn't say he was equal to Danault. I said his production was on par to Danault. He'll be 26 this summer and Florida didn't want to use him as a 3rd line center. You want to use him as a 2nd line center. Marc is that you? Floating trade balloons again?

    Seems to me Florida isn't interested in Pacioretty.

    Yes, i would, as would 95% of the gm's in the league. It's easy for Florida to "demote" him to bottom six status when you have Barkov and Trocheck (even Huberdeau if necessary) as your other options at C. Is he a saviour - no, but beggars can't be choosy. I truly believe he is on the verge of a major breakout after years of battling injuries and inconsistency.

    Probably the same folks telling you Bjugstad could never play C are the same ones who argued Brayden Schenn could never play C either last year around this time.

    We know Bergevin wants to trade more than half his team and I really think he's got many dance partners this year that are really disappointed with their team and are looking to shake things up.

    Buffalo - AGAIN
    Edmonton - AGAIN
    Arizona - AGAIN
    Carolina - very disappointed and looking to shake things up (tons of Ds)
    St-Louis - openly said they are moving players
    Detroit
    Ottawa
    Calgary
    Washington if they're out quickly in the playoffs again.

    All of these teams have needs and some of our players would fit in nicely. And all of these teams have players that would fit in here.

    Does Bergevin have the dance moves?

    And apparently, we should have never traded for Couterier either since he had 34 points last year -almost the same as Danault.

    How can a guy that’s played 6 NHL seasons still have “untapped potential”?

    I think Bjugstad is a good player, but saying a soon to be 26 year old with over 350 games has untapped potential but a comparable guy that's half a year younger and under 200 games is an overrated 3rd liner is ... weird.

    Absent any deeper analysis, comparing comments on Bjugstad to comments on Schenn is like comparing comments on Bjugstad to comments on Drouin or Alzner or anyone else that is from another organization.

    Injuries and playing time have hampered his progress - he's 26, not 36.

    As do I. Hell, i'd like to get Dubois out of Columbus, but it ain't happening.

    All i'm saying is if the only thing we can get is him (at a realistic price), i will never be convinced not to take it simply because we already have Danault.

    Plus, he,s a big boy and, apart from exceptions, they usually take more time to develop.

    Andrew Gross of Newsday looked at some of Tavares' likely landing spots and he scratches Montreal off the list because of the media situation.
    This season, the Montreal media really went too far with divorce rumours of Carey Price, constant trade rumours regarding Max Pacioretty and basically making it extremely difficult for the players to ever dig themselves out of the whole they got into.

    They'd better have a good back up plan.

    I'd like to know why the author thinks NYR is out of the mix. This is my prediction, outside of him staying put.
