    as much as non-habfans are underrating him, I think Eller's in the deal + a couple of our 2nds + maybe a beaulieu or Ellis. I think Palushaj caught Aves attention :laugh:

    I would love RoR in a habs jersey too. But the asking price is too much! Not only he's asking for a 4.5-5mil a year, we would have to give up a top-9 player and a prospect too.

    Only way to pull this off if MB can somehow trade kaberle+prospect to colorado. But I dont see it happening really.

    Stand corrected on the draft status but his 6' 205 lbs and the way he plays is exactly what Montreal needs.

    Guys do you really think

    Desharnais
    Plekanec
    Galchenyuk
    Eller

    Is better then

    Plekanec
    ROR
    Galchenyuk
    Eller

    Especially in a seven game playoff series vs Boston or Toronto where the regular season rules go out the window?

    and I think Tinordi is an untouchable prospect right now. he's exactly what we need going forward - even more than O'Reilly right now.
    We have 0 what Tinordi brings in the system - maybe emelin a little

    It's Beaulieu AND the 1st though. Too rich for my blood. And the standings are too tight to be so certain that the pick is surely going to be in the 20's. Maybe if you can get top 15 protection on that pick I'd be more open to it.

    Plekanec does a lot of what ROR does anyway - and Eller is certainly coming along in that 2-way C role - I don't see the need to go bonkers for ROR. Especially when he wants 4M+ it seems.

    I can't wait until he gets lit up again and they go back to calling him an AHL goalie. Thankfully they play Tampa tomorrow so maybe it'll happen then.

    No, but Desharnais won't get us ROR without throwing in some nice prospects, and this is for an unsigned guy demanding big money, the exact same situation that cost Subban to miss a few weeks of hockey.

    I don't get why this talk is here and not the trade section anyway, ROR is a very nice player but complimenting the team doesn't mean he's forcing his way to play in Montreal.
     
  14. We just won a game with a shutout. And not a low-tier team; the #3 in the east!

    Why are we talking of trading DD for RoR, while there are already FOUR OTHER THREADS that could hold the same discussion?!?!

    I would not make that deal either

    Tinordi for me is gold......
    I would sacrifice Eller but with a second not a first and Morgan Ellis or Beaulieu

    I consider having a guy who can bring the same type of intangibles as Plekanec more of a luxury than a redundancy for the team. It would give us the ability to grind out series the same way that Phoenix did last year in the playoffs but the difference is that our team is a LOT better than theirs. I'd rather have Plekanec, ROR, Eller and Gally than Hanzal, Vermette & Gordon as center depth.

    I don't even see why people want to trade our C's. We FINALLY have some depth at C.. let's keep it for awhile. :laugh: ... It's not like we have anything in the minors outside Bournival who view as good two way centre, but a 3rd line guy.

    IMO, our biggest weakness is a Top-4 defenseman. We have a solid Top-4 with Subban, Markov, Diaz, and Gorges .. but one more Top-4 guy would be excellent.

    I know I proposed Eller for Polak but that's just because of MT's use of him - but I think if he keeps playing like this, it'll be hard to keep ignoring him. I wouldn't make a trade (ala ROR) just to keep Eller in the same position. If I traded a C, it would be to upgrade out Top-4 .

    We're all getting way off topic though. Let's reel it in!

    Guys, we have a trade proposal thread. Care to discuss trading for RoR there?

    Back on topic, I'm really impressed with this team's defensive play. really forcing teams to take low percentage shots. I'm struggling to think of complaints about any of our defenseman (within reason).

    Great effort again MT has these guys going! Great to see...Budaj has looked solid and deserves credit as many people crap on him, but he was had solid seasons and is a very good back up. This team has surpassed my expectations and besides one very bad beating. This season has been amazing it appears that the team has committed into a system and every one is playing there role like a well oiled machine! GO HABS GO

    Solid win, I only saw the last 10 mins of the third but that was worth it. I don't know the last time we got a goal like Pacioretty scored. :yo:

    happy for budaj and also feel less anxiety now knowing that he can give us a chance to win. the guys rallied around him and good team support.

    i like seeing eller with more skilled players and that he's getting more quality time. he had some good shifts and seemed to be controlling the play, and protecting the puck very well.

    its the pp that's gone a bit stagnant, we had a hard bringing it in cleanly and setting up. credit the canes with their pressure.

    let's keep the momentum rolling. he have a busy week.
