    Some Blues fans think Tarasenko's trade value is Kotkaniemi, Brook, 1st, +++++. They made reference to us asking for Thomas and a 1st for Patch and think it's the same. Apparently Thomas is a #1C in the making.

    Thomas is closer to Suzuki than to Kotkaniemi. (when the Pacio trade was made)

    Gord Miller really needs to finally lay off the Kotkaniemi would've been better off playing in Finland this season instead of with the Habs in his opinion. Every time he's on TSN690 with Melnick lately it's the same stuff from him about Kotkaniemi and where "he" thinks he should be playing this season. I'd say he's done pretty darn well in his role with the Habs this season and the Habs have been handling him quite well IMO.

    Gord Miller also called Hemsky an "elite" goal scorer last year after the Habs signed him so I now take anything he says with a huge grain of salt.

    Gord Miller is inbred, look at his chin.

    Gord is just simple minded, not one development plan is one size fits all. KK is a quick learner and thrives under pressure which makes for a different development scenario than someone like Galchenyuk who was less willing to learn all aspects of the game

    Gord Miller is a bad analyst. I couldn’t give less of a **** about his opinion. The fact that he thinks Kotka should be playing in Finland is an embarrassment. That’s a freezing cold take.

    From what I have read, the kid’s defensive statistics are incredible... not only for his age of 18 years old. Sure he needs to physically mature, but seriously, he is taking care of his assignments while a 3rd liner, and provides highlight assists and goals with his point production. My posts about staying in Finland were based on the disbelief that we would develop him properly in the NHL. So far? I am happy to be wrong.

    He doesn't want to admit he was wrong so he just keeps driving the same point home even though it doesn't make any sense.

    I would pay a 1st and a solid prospect + for Tarasenko. He's a beast and still has many good years left in him. That being said the prospect wouldn't be Kotkaniemi he's way too valuable to this franchise.

    Suzuki + 1st + Hudon/B prospect would be the max I'd pay for Tarasenko.

    No way. Suzuki has too much going for him and hasn’t played a game as a pro. I think, again, the power of a winning attitude in the farm is just as important as development. They go hand in hand IMO.

    Tarasenko would score 40 with Kotka and just turned 27 , I would do that deal any day of the week. Weber and Price not getting any younger and having an elite sniper like Tarasenko would make this town go crazy.

    All fans will be saying "What Powerplay problems?".

    This kid very much is the next Kopitar / Barkov and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. He’s going to be a real good one!

    Link ?

    I don't know, I doubt Blues fans are saying it, more likely one guy. Every board has that guy.

    Upcoming team Finland will look great if they can go in 2022:

    Aho - Barkov - Rantanen
    Laine - Kotkaniemi - Kakko

    Would be nice to see Kotka centering some truly elite players. Something tells me it's not often we will get to see it in a Habs jersey , hopefully I'm wrong...

    That was a nice goal but the way the defender played it was super soft. Nice imitation of a pylon.
