    Would rather trade him since we have so many young wingers, but that’s a great deal.

    Agreed but we should trade Shaw right now even for a 7th rounder...

    This guy should be traded, not resigned. Makes no ****ing sense. Bergevin half-assing the rebuild like he half-assed the cup window.

    We still have lots of cap space, so maybe we could eat some of his contract to make it more enticing.

    I expected him to be traded this year but I'm happy with this.

    Could also look at it that if the habs trade him in the next year or 2 his value is worth more since he has years left on his contract

    Good for him. Cannot think of a more deserving player on the team.

    It's a speed game now and Byron is perfect for that type of play

    These wins in pre-season have gotten to his head. Can't say that I'm unhappy about this but I'm a tad disappointed by the lack of vision here.

    As long as there is no clauses, this deal should actually make Byron an even more attractive piece, so there’s that.

    Increases his trade value, if anything.

    Byron's certainly worth the $$$. Good deal for both sides.

    I know we want them to get younger. But they're also looking to get faster. And truth be told, not many in the entire NHL is as fast as Byron, even at his age. So this is a great signing in my book. He's 29, so this will bring him to 33 years old.

    But I feel this signature means that we'll hold off in trading him for at least one year, or two years logically. (Can't recall the last times a player was traded before his extension kicked in, or one year into it, esp for a blue collar guy like Byron)

    If Bergy trades him after he signed him to a 4 year deal, he's even more of an ******* then I thought. After calling Radulov a dog and disrespecting Subban, Markov and Pacioretty, imagine how many players would want to be here if he trades a guy again just after signing a long term deal.

    Once again Bergevin does not know anything about asset management....trade Byron get assets back then sign him......so he signs 31 year old Byron but will not sign the better player 31 year old Radulov.

    MTL is pretty set at LW for the next few years:

    Drouin
    Domi
    Tatar
    Hudon
    Byron
    Deslauriers

    We don't have alot of prospects coming on the LW positions so I'm fine with this signature.

    If we’re in the cellar and losing I’m sure Byron wouldn’t mind being traded to a contender.
