    Obviously the target would be Ryan Getzlaf...who got 3 years left at $8.25 million ...6 foot 5 center.

    What the trade would be? i dunno...

    Was there any rumors with the Sharks & Sens?

    Most of the rumors right now are just propaganda and last ditch efforts to prove some points.

    The Ducks aren’t trading away Getzlaf even in a shake up, and if they were, it would cost us an arm and a leg, which is why Bergevin keeps failing to get one mixed in with trading away the assets that could potentially land one.

    The problem is we have no assets to offer. We squandered them on wingers. Or position of strength is winger, the least valuable position. For example if I was a GM I wouldn't trade a first line centre for a first line winger. I could just play my centre on the wing if I needed to and still have that depth to cover any injuries to the starting centres. Why would I hand cuff myself? We don't have the assets to aquire a proper top line centre, they rarely go to free agency and when they do they never come to Montreal. The only way to get one..... The draft.

    I'm gonna be drunk AF before that happens.

    There's no one left that I truly like other than Scherbak. I'm hoping to have someone new with this pick but TkaSuck isn't the guy

    You were a former goalie. If he bounces back, you should be able to appreciate him.

    Exactly. Draft Kotkaniemi and then use the 4 second round picks to get 2 more centers and 2 left PMDs.

    NO WINGERS OR RIGHT SIDE DEFENSE. we are stacked. :facepalm: you just know Bergie wants more wingers.

    You're not getting a center of this caliber for an offer like that. Stastny is not getting younger, he will go for longer term on his last contract in the NHL. Expecting 6 years in between 6 to 7.5 million (Best center available after Tavares, could get extra money for that). He was really good with the Jets especially in the playoffs.

    No chance he gets 6 years.

    Alzner at 29 years old got 5 years
    Shattenkirk at 28 got 4 years
    Okposo at 28 got 7 years
    Lucic at 28 got 7 years
    Radulov at 31 got 6 years
    Hanzal at 30 got 3 years

    Statsny would be 39 at the end of his contract if he signs for 6 years. None of the ufas above come close to that.

    Also, last summer Alzner was the only ufa to get over 4 years. So it seems gms have become wary of giving long-term contract to ufas

    I expect Statsny to get 4 years, but I would offer him more money to make it 3 years.

    Do the Ducks do Getzlaf and a 2nd or a prospect, for 3rd overall if they decide to rebuild? We keep Pacioretty and add more pieces and we go into win right now mode...? Seems like a Bergie move...

    At least we could get some excitement next season, and maybe by some miracle Price will get a cup in Montreal and we wouldn't have pissed away his career.

    Bergevin never does things the right way, and until he's gone there is no point in being hopeful for anything he says or does.

    Mediocre? I think you mean bad. Mediocre is my greatest fear.

    Expect the unexpected... It's not my fault, this isn't Playstation. Carey needs to be better.

    It's a good point, but I can still see him getting atleast 5. He's a centerman posting good numbers and coming off a really good playoff performance.

    I do agree with you, 3-4 years would the best case scenario.

    Stastny would start his 6th year at 37 years old.
    Year 1 : 32
    Year 2: 33
    Year 3: 34
    Year 4: 35
    Year 5: 36
    Year 6: 37

    So he might get 6 years in a market like this. But i see the salary going lower.
    There's always that desperate GM out there and sadly, he's in MTL.
