    To be fair, Ferraro also said that he hasn't followed McCarron much, although he hears that's he been developping quite nicely

    I'll keep repeating, Benoit Poulliot, Benoit Poulliot. JD may very well be a stud one day but right now he is a project and a question mark. I would not trade either Beau or Big Mac straight up for a project.

    Not saying that BP hasn't developed into a legit NHL player. But he is not one you would trade a Top 4 D for. JD is not yet even a NHL player and who knows what he ends up.

    To be honest, I'm not a huge Ferraro fan, I think a lot of his scouting info comes out of his ass, especially this year at the WJC I felt like he was off.

    So you admit that the Habs have to overpay and the Habs are not well equipped as other teams to overpay, yet you want the GM to go ahead and make the move, because we want a big trade irregardless that we get fleeced or makes us weaker in the medium to long term....

    Beaulieu isn't a top 4 D yet either. His numbers are ok, not great.

    The Habs need McCarron and Beaulieu more than Drouin...much more. That's not taking the pick into consideration.

    Scherbak, Juulsen and a pick is the most we should do

    Brian Wilde is milking every second of the Drouin drama, but it's what we all want I guess...

    Exactly - no chance in hell we will get Drouin. They don't want Beaulieu and we aren't trading Galchenyuk.

    Agreed...and once a foolish trade would go through and not pan out he would be the first to criticize it :help:

    It "looks" like giving too much solely based on the fact that we love to dream that Big Mac will become a great player. But honnestly, in reality, it isn't such a crazy package, while I don't say I would do it.

    If Big Mac becomes a third liner and Drouin develops well, then you should go with Drouin.

    The pick, well we don't know the rank of it, so it's tough to say, but drafts are crapshoots.

    Beaulieu? Again, we love to dream about his potential, while in reality, it is still up in the air if he will be anything else than a Mathieu Dandenault or a Patrice Brisebois. After all, he has yet to reach the 20 points mark and is certainly not a god defensively nor an example of consistency of dedication.

    A young and supremely skilled 20 years old who's available, it doesn't happen often. So yeah, we should objectively think of what Big Mac and Beau will REALLY become (instead of dreaming) before stating that package is ridiculous.

    Now it's true we should do the same exercise regarding Drouin.

    Thing is, Wilde isn't a rumourmonger. 99% of his tweets are factual and his opinion. He rarely if at all dives into rumours. I think there is actually something that can happen here. And he's also not exactly putting his own secret conversation with McGuire & Ferraro, it was on a radio station, so he's just reporting what the "insiders" and "analysts" say on the radio stations.

    Well...
    Stamkos signed at 7yrs/30 millions total and Drouin for Subban and Galchenyuk?

    I MIGHT think about it.

    But of course Stamkos's price is probably closer to 70 millions total than 30, so obviously, not happening.
