    He's very likely to get traded, we have a lot of depth on our wings and playing him in our bottom 6 doesn't make much sense. He hasn't been waived because he'd definitely get claimed but with guys coming back from IR we'll have to move someone.

    Looking for a young Dman in return (pref LHD) who's in a similar situation as Scherbak (change of scenery to get more play time). Anyone like that available?

    Scherbak for Honka & 6th. Fair deal, benefits both teams. Kinda.

    I like Honka but our problem is that we have too many players in the NHL (when our injured players are healthy) and that we're gonna have to send down a player that'll pass throught waivers.


    Honka has to go throught waivers so I don't see the point of doing that trade. I'd preder a younger player (2015 draft maybe) that doesn't need waivers.

    Just tossing a few names (Roy, Greer, Carlsson, Carrier...I don't know)

    Don't see him being traded and it would be a bad move at this point. You don't give up a young guy like him with his talent before you have given him a serious shot at showing what he can do.

    Trolling is not becoming.

    I hope Scherbak does not get liquidated. Habs need to see him play a full NHL season or close to it first. His value is not much at this stage but it's not terrible. He is just unproven and needs maturity.

    NHL Stats last year: 6 pts and 4 goals in 26 games

    AHL Stats last year: 30 pts and 7 goals in 26 games.

    Giving up on Scherbak at this stage is stupid cause the Habs really don't know how good or bad he is. We need a larger NHL sample size.

    I get what you're saying. Sadly, we have players who are performing better right now.

    He surely didnt seem like he improved during training camp. Same defensive brain farts,lazy back check and very questionable puck decisions.

    I mean, its not like the competition is any easier in regular season play. So doubt he can outplay anyone on the roster right now.

    As a former 1st rounder, he's not worth a 1st round pick anymore for sure.

    With de la Rose healthy again, they will be forced to trade one or both of them in the coming days or risk losing them on waivers. Hence, the trade value of Sherbak isn't great - 3rd rounder at best or a similar prospect that doesn't need to go through waivers to be sent down.

    Honka is the same age as Scherbak (teams have the same waiver concerns with him). Montreal has bodies on D, but not the same depth. They currently have two healthy RHD. I also don't really see why they'd be afraid to waive one of Alzner/Benn/Ouellett. Don't see much chance of Oullett being claimed and Alzner being claimed would be a blessing for Montreal.

    Or just waive a worthless player like Alzner instead.

    If all you can get for Scherbak is a 3rd, I’d much rather keep him.

    Is there a team out there that is ready to give Scherbak a full year at the NHL level? If not, he'll go through waivers and the cost paid to get him will have been for nothing.

    Given the parity in the league and time of the year (everyone is aiming for the playoffs in October), I'm not sure there are many teams out there who could afford the gamble.

    I think there are quite a fews teams that would do it and it's not that big a gamble based on last year. So the guy's preseason wasn't that great. Big deal. He's got size, speed and talent and that would be appreciated by most teams. Heck, he'd look decent on the Leafs third line and on any line in Arizona.

    I cant see how its stupid to study the market for a late boomer prospect. If we didnt wait so long in the past, maybe we could get something for guy like McCarron, Fucale, Lernout.... Nobody would touch them anymore even on waivers.

    For me Scherbak has proven absolutly nothing and if we can grab a value like a Kevin Hayes with him, I woudl be all over it.

    This organisation took too much theses years and this should be added on Bergevin bad moves.

    Kevin Hayes? Lol you see what people are offering for him right? His value has dropped well below getting a Kevin Hayes. As a previous Canuck fan suggested I’d be open to a pouliot for scherbak swap or mdz.

    Scherbak + Ryder + Halak could bring MTL the high-end player they need.

    You know...
    What exactly should be added on Bergevin's bad moves? The fact that he tried to draft some picks and let them bloom into NHL players rather then trading them? In that case every GM should have a bad move... Hindsight is 20/20 here.

    Also good luck getting Kevin Hayes for Scherbak.

    They took Lindell off the table for Nylander, sooooo you're not going to have a good time.

    The Habs are supposedly rebuilding. Why are they trying to trade a prospect?
