Arguably the 3 best of all time.
We should try to get that from them by sending Weber over.
Trade Weber?? Why?
That's been a major issue for how long now? Credit to the leafs, they stole Andersen for cheap.
Yeah, Blues should be kicking themselves over that one. I liked Andersen a lot when he was Anaheim. Lots of teams are looking for quality starting goalies & when the Leafs decided they weren't tanking anymore & wanted a good goalie they went out and got one.
Blues should look at Bobrovsky in Columbus, but it's not an easy solve.
To possibly get Hughes.
Would you prefer having Weber or Hughes? To me it's well worth the risk.
This team has new exciting bits, but we are very far from being serious contenders. It's like people forget how much talent you need to actually have a legit shot at the cup. We have a few players performing very nicely, which is good enough for us to barely be a PO bubble team, and people loose their minds.
Realistically speaking, if all goes well, you're looking at the Habs possibly contending in 3 years. Weber will be 35+ then. He is 33 now and still good, we should take advantage of that by moving him while he's still worth a lot.
If we can get a lotto pick for him...no question in my mind you pull the plug.
I'd trade Petry before trading Weber. Petry, Danault, and Byron can fetch us some decent returns this year or next. Tatar I'd consider moving too if he goes through a big dry spell (and therefore confirms he's gonna be a streaky player with limited reliability). Hudon should be moved before his value plummets.
I don't support tanking but gunning for Hughes and Lafreniere by strategically selling off good but not core players should be plan.
Bobrovsky looks awful this year and like Price, will be looking for a big payday. I wouldn’t go anywhere near him.
Petry and Danault should be traded for sure. Byron isn't going anywhere after that contract extension. I wanted to trade Tatar before, but man I'd rather keep him and play him with Kotkaniemi instead. Is another 1st really worth it when we have nobody else that's good to play with Kotkaniemi? Of course if we get a valid replacement then I'm all for trading him.
I think Byron is ripe for getting traded next year. Tatar I'd like to keep if he's gonna be a 60-80 guy but I really doubt that that's the real Tatar. If he's gonna be streaky come February I'd rather trade him then, or trade him next year too.
This year Petry and Danault have got to move. Maybe we can get two new 1sts + some prospects. Maybe Schlemmer can play consistently and show off his alleged skills and then we can move him for a 2nd or something.
There's going to be an arms race this year in the NHL for the playoffs, scoring is up and so is hope. That means it'll be a seller's market. I wish we had kept Pleks or traded him.
Im guessing he is amongst those that still miss PK 3 years later
I would be shocked if Danault was traded.
It could be both true that a) many fans aren't over losing the best Habs player in decades and b) many fans want to rebuild and that means wanting to trade Weber while he has value
Why is that? If Domi persists and Kotkaniemi keeps up his pace Danault would be relegated to bottom6 and is therefore expendable.
Cool to live in your dreamland. Ill take Weber over PK ten times over and ao would most GMs and team Canada. Thats very telling. Oh yeah his teammates actually like him. Best player in decades ?
He's young, Bergevin acquired him, and he's local.
Team Canada took Chris Kunitz over Claude Giroux too
Do you see MB saying something like "Poehling made Danault expendable"
We'd probably move Domi to the wing before that ever happens.
I thought this logic applies to Price only and nobody else?
That said, I would seriously consider Bob if I were a contending team looking for a starter and have absolutely no elite prospects in the system, but agree his asking price is going to be high. My guess is ~12% of the cap.
What does this even mean in relation to Weber??
The post that was being replied to used Team Canada's 2014 selections as an argument to prefer Weber over Subban. So the post that you're replying to is saying that that particular argument is weak, and in fact it is.
It was an invalid argument in 2014, and is even more invalid today since the 2014 selections can be considered to be defunct.
Weber might be a preferable asset for the Habs than Subban, but not because Team Canada preferred him back in 2014.
The people who make the "Weber was picked for team Canada" argument are the kind of people you meet at a party, get stuck in a conversation with, and they say stupid **** such as this and you just put on a fake smile and nod, silently praying that someone will come and take you away from this ****ing dolt that you hope you never have to see again.
He was picked cause he’s good, very good.....that’s where that conversation ends.
On another note, if you find yourself in that predicament again, fake an incoming call, look at your phone, and say “I gotta take this”......walk away and begin a blind conversation with an empty phone.
That should take care of that
You underestimate how oblivious some people are to the fact that I have no interest in talking to them.
