    McKenzie | O’Reilly would be absolute godsend to Canadiens

    What would the package be if money's going back? Shaw? Alzner? + one of Mete/Poehling?

    Considering the way this org has treated him, I wouldn't hate that deal provided that's the entire deal.

    Good replacement for Pleks. You'd need both O'Reilly and Chucky on the team, imo. The Habs may not have the horses to get him.

    Well in that case though if they do plan on trading Galchenyuk then they need to be comfortable in keeping Pacioretty. But that' my opinion. can't afford to trade both, as much as we suck down the middle we don't have that many offensive weapons on the wings out there.

    If they cannot sign Tavares as a UFA, ROR is the second best solution. Yes, they will have to pay a hefty price to get him.

    But that price could be Patches or Galchenyuk + ????

    On the other hand, if Habs can sign Tavares and trade for ROR. that would be awesome. Danault would automatically become the 3rd line centerman, one of the best in the league. That would be a very, very good center line.

    On the wings, Habs would still have Galchy or Patches, Drouin, Gally, Lehkonen, Scherback, Byron, Hudon... And why not sign another UFA like Neil, Perron or JVR ?

    D-corp needs help too....

    No, but he's not your typical cliches hockey player who has no interests outside of hockey. Kinda of like Subban to be honest.

    Its kind of crazy how the stars never seem aligned for the habs to land a center...

    the exact type of center they need could be available - but he plays in the division
    they're awful one year, draft player deemed to be the top eligible center (Galchenyuk) in his draft - he ends up not being a center
    They're awful this year, have a top 4 pick - there's no center projected to be in the top 10 this year.

    Cruel

    How come teams like Anaheim, TB and Nashvile (to name a few) can find gems later on in the first round and subsequent rounds ?

    oo boy absolute his the word ! I really like Peohling but if we are more realist, he is more a Derek Stepan, Jordan Staal, Travis Zajac than ROR

    Why can't all teams find gems later in the first round and subsequent rounds? It would be nice, but I don't see the point in holding the Habs to impossible standards. Yes, Bergevin has failed to address the C position, but expecting him to find a gem C in the later rounds of the draft is unfair.

    Anyway, if we can somehow parlay Pacioretty into ROR, we should do it. He would fix a number of holes, but ROR is not going to singlehandedly change our fortunes. He would have a similar impact as prime Plekanec and we never won much with him as our 1b/#2 centre.

    Honestly they should have acquired him back when he was traded the first time. He has always been a perfect fit for the dinosaur defense first coaches that we exclusively hire. He's a very well rounded player, an actual center, and has high level offense too. He was a no brainer before and is a no brainer now but Bergevin doesn't even know he exists because he is unaware of any center players existing.
