    Hudon: An undersized scoring forward that can't score and is a weak skater. Do you think we're missing Victor Rask?

    Lindgren: This is not a solution to our goalkeeping problem. We need a proven league-average starter, not another spec.

    2020 2nd: C'mon. You're trying to trade for our best power forward with your castaways and can't even make the pick for this year?

    As a Habs fan, I usually find this comment very annoying but I have to admit, I've seen the Hudon, Lindgren & a 2nd package offered up by fellow Habs fans quite a few times over the last couple of weeks.

    Habs fans need to realize Hudon will end up on waivers and has no value

    This person is correct.

    Hudon has one point over his last 16 games played. That is not very much for an offensive player.

    He is waiver fodder to get Weise up. I just see Hudon being given some decent ice time over the next week or so to see if any teams would throw a late pick or their own meddling prospect for him.

    Oh Jesus Christ.

    We had to gut out incessant proposals including Scherbak - “young scorer” that just can’t “crack the logjam in Montreal” - and now it appears we’ve graduated to Hudon.

    When the hell will you guys learn? Better yet, when will it stop?

    EVERY fanbase is guilty of overrating their young fringe-NHLers. Especially if they have an offensive bent to their game or are a former 1st or 2nd round pick.

    On their own boards? Sure.

    Shoving those nothing players down everyone else’s throats on a near-daily basis? Definitely not.

    Also Hudon has actually proven he can score at the NHL level. His value in a trade right now is probably close to non-existent but someone would certainly pick him up from waivers.

    Some waiver fodder and a 2020 2nd, where do I sign?

    Hurricanes could be buyers or sellers at Trade Deadline, GM says
    Canes would rather keep Ferland as their own rental than deal him for a terrible return.

    Yeah - I'm quoting the many, many Habs fans that used that line in an attempt to foist Scherbak on other organizations. Shamelessly dishonest, and now we're seeing the same garbage with Hudon.

    Rinse and repeat.

    not every prospect is gonna pan out, that's not just a montreal thing. My bigger problem is that a lot of our fan base when they look at a prospect who is not living up to expectations ( like say a "young scorer" who doesnt score) they immediately invent a fairy tale about other attributes they bring to the table to offset their core deficiencies.

    like hudon must be good defensively because if he wasnt, there is no reason to keep him.

    and here we are.

    ha! this made me laugh, but to be fair, i think that ryder+halak was worth way more than Hudon and Lingren. Ryder had a few 30-goal seasons under his belt, Halak was a solid 1b-2a goalie.. whereas the other two are unproven

    Selling Ferland for a total dog **** return like the one in the OP definitely would move the attendance needle... negatively.
