Calvin deHaan is your guy
He has the same amount of PTS then Edmundson while playing for the team with the most goals in the league and Edmundson is #1 in the league in +-
Very hard to provide good arguments why Graves would be better than Romanov and Chariot so Habs don't really have any reasons to acquire this guy.
Could see Montreal taking a flyer on Hall.
Typo, meant to write "NOT"
He's NOT better
He's a RFA, and no, Montour isn't better than the guy we have at LHD in Edmundson, CHiarot and Romanov. So again, why waste picks on a futur UFA that doesn't make us better? unless the d-man can step on the 1st pairing with Weber and fits the core (25ish), not worth it.
Honestly I'm kinda getting this feeling as well.
He has the talent to be a gamebreaker something the Habs are missing at the forward position.
I suppose you need to ask the question:
What would a trade do to their situation?
Is it wise to play for today when tomorrow looks not so great. Weber and Price are looming issues that cannot be ignored.
Hall has been slowed with chronic knee issues the last few years. He drives the play with speed and skating. Might be a better option than another DMan. Depending on the BUF ask, they want a 1st which is too high.
Would the Canadiens have any interest in Ryan Murray?
The cap space frees up the ability to acquire him, Devils may be willing to retain a bit to make it work, but they still have Kulikov/Vatanen who they may plan to trade with retention
Devils would probably be just looking for a pick and maybe a warm body on defense to finish out the year.
i am surprised they are not in on hall, i think they should as they have a lot of picks, but i think bergevin is a sneaky guy he probably is fishing around buffalo looking for scrubbs.....
Hows Murray's Skating now a days? I know he has been injured a lot has it affected him in any ways?
$3.75MM?? BargainBin will get 3-4 players for that price, give us all your depth
You assume EJ will waive his NMC. Why would he unless he is ok being possibly moved? This is a business and he wanted that clause but Avs fans just assume he will waive it so Sakic can protect Toews. Would you do that for a co-worker?
I guess you didn't read the whole thread, but it's either EJ waives or he gets bought out. The Avs' ownership aren't going to balk at having to pay for EJ's buyout like Anaheim did.
Plus, it's a lot different situation, Sakic is a player's GM and there's been multiple quotes about how much they trust Joe and his leadership. There is zero reason for Seattle to select EJ who is overpaid, 32 yrs of age, and has played 4 games this season, especially in a flat cap world. EJ has played the majority of his career on the Avalanche and has been one of the leaders in the locker room and loves the team.
If he wants to stay on the Avs, he'll waive his NMC. If he doesn't he gets traded or bought out Sakic can also trade him to 19 teams in the league, EJ doesn't hold all the cards like many believe he does.
I know Columbus needs a center, but if I'm Bergevin, i'm offering Caulfield for Laine as the center piece
Oh, Hell No!!...Habs have enough enigmas, don't need Laine to float alongside Johnny Drou Drou...it's LD help that the Habs need most, so I wouldn't be shocked to see Dunn (and probably a Hoffman or somesuch) for picks and Lehkonen (although I'd much rather see Byron's wasted contract go the other way)...
Duncan Keith would bring this all together...!
In on Hall, dump Drouin at the same time.
What is Getzlaf doing these days?
habs aren't contenders, they're a playoff team but a major dark horse. Bergevin shouldn't be going crazy imo. Maybe a dman...
they have lots of picks and there have been rumours he may be dangling norlinder, but i just don't see it.
they need to wait for kotkaniemi, suzuki and caufield to mature
Want no part of Laine. Semin is the right comparison. He'll have the same value as Galchenyuk does now within 4 years.
Devils have 3 ufa defenseman (Murray, Kulikov, Vatanen). Habs could be interested in acquiring one of them
Murray could be a target.
