For 4 years I’m not either
We can Dump Weise , Peca , Trade players like Byron Shaw and Petry
Let Reilly , Benn , Hudon , Armia UFA
Cap is not an issue.
Elder coming here reminds me of Hamrlik coming later in his career. I don't know if it would turn out as good though.
I thought thats what they signed Lindgren for, there are more important areas to focus on mainly our embarrassing left d lineup.
Lindgren can handle the back up duties, left D needs addressing
They don't trust Lindgren. We need an NHL caliber Backup not an other Niemi
Ok but left d is still a more pressing matter regardless
The team squeaks into the playoffs with a competent backup goalie last season. Not saying it’s the most important position to fill, but clearly a big need. They don’t want to work Carey that much if they want him playing a similar level by the end of his contract.
You just sign a UFA no need for a trade for a backup.
If you can get a decent piece to go with Reimer and give them Weise, I’d say you do it. He’s a decent goalie and can easily play 25 games.
Are the Habs really in position to pay their backup 3.4M for the next two seasons?
Maybe if Florida retains salary (which I doubt), but I'd probably roll with Lindgren or look elsewhere.
Backup goalie is an issue but I don't think Reimer fits capwise.
I agree, Weise isn't worth it. Only way I take Reiner is if we trade up.
You can just as easily say the team squeaks into the playoffs with an offensive LD or a sniper on the power play. Offensive LD and snipers are harder to get than back up goalies therefore I would prioritize the skater.
Reimer was terri-bad in the games we played against Florida. As soon as i saw his name on the gamesheet, i knew we'd win. I don't want to see him in MTL. At least with Lindgren, there's the possibility he'll be good.
You want Subban?
Malcolm for McNiven and Lernout.
No. He won't. He's got a ten cent head and his fear of physical play makes him rush decisions and panic. They should stay far, far, far away from Jake Gardiner.
Any team that allows Jake Gardiner to eat up 20 minutes or more of ice time has a lousy defence.
We're that team with the lousy defense...
I agree with you but backup goalie is way easier to fix so there’s no reason not to.
Crazy to think that the Jets went into the PO with 3 more points than the habs as today, lost Trouba and might lose Elhers.
If they can get McElhinney and flip him kn a year or two when primeau is ready be cool. Gives depth in case Price goes down long term.
I'd be ok with something like 13 + Reimer for 15 + Weise.
Different pieces can be evened out on either side but I think it's a decent deal.
We'd have 3.4 million to swallow for the next year but it expires in the offseason before our big necessary signing summer (Danault, Poehling, Kotkaniemi, etc etc)
Vancouver would be a perfect fit for Alzner him being from there on top of that
Send him along with a draft pick!!
Anyone that wants Alzner is a "perfect fit" for him. I can't see why anyone would want to, though. We're not in cap trouble, no point in giving up any assets to move him just yet unless we have to.
It would take our 1st round pick though,.....and probably more.
