    Too bad. Hard to trade a guy to a playoff team when he can't put on a skate.

    At least next year he'll be a year older and have a year less on that sweet, sweet offer sheet he signed.

    His salary gets cut in half next year.

    He will now be a $6M defenceman with a $7.8M caphit instead of a $12M defenceman with a $7.8M caphit.

    Much easier to move.

    This.

    He will become wayyyyyyyy more attractive, especially to budget teams.

    This is why you don't play injured players, ever. When an injury doesn't heal properly, or heals improperly, it becomes career threatening.

    Agreed. No need bringing him back to finish out this ****show and failure of a season. Anyway MB needs this Weber injury as his go to excuse for why the Habs had such an awful season during his end of season press conference. You all know that's what's likely gonna happen especially if they shut Weber down for the rest of the season.

    We save a million on Petry, Drouin, and Shaw, while Price goes from $7M to $15M.

    The only players that will make more next season than last season are Price, Deslauriers, and Gallagher.

    Salary wise Molson will save money unless Bergevin signs someone to a stupid deal.

    First, I do hope Weber fully recovers and not have any lingering effects both on and off-ice. I’m sure if a skate hurts, boots and shoes are probably no walks in the park.

    From a hockey operations perspective, forget the idea of trading him for anyone’s playoff push.

    I was so angry when I found out he was pretty much injured immediately and kept playing.

    Had they just sat him then he'd be 100% right now. Instead he probably made it worse. Not his fault though. He's just a player and he's going to want to play. 100% the team doctors.

    Come on down 32 year old Paul Stastny. Probably the best UFA center on the market this summer so a desperate MB could likely overpay for him.

    Great call

    he was never meant to be a hab in the first place, i honestly get the impression he hates it here where as his trade counter-part...for all intense and purposes....absolutely loved it...

    Folks a quick reminder to leave the PK talk for the out of town thread. Threadbans are going to be applied liberally here.

    Insurance paying Weber + cap space = losing int he first round. I think he'll be satisfied with this season.

    Could the injury to Chez be what saves Bergevin?
