    When De La Rose & Deslauriers return from injury which forward will be bumped? MTL will have too many players on the roster and someone requires to be sent down or traded, will it be Scherbak and ... ? This will be hard as sending down any of these players will require waivers. Interesting to hear your thoughts.

    Amongst Sherback, Plekanec, Hudon, Peca and the injured players, the likeliest to be sent down are Sherback and DLR (in that order) and the least likely would be Hudon and Peca.

    I don't think anyone else is at risk, unless an irresistible offer is made via trade.

    Honestly, as much as I want him to succeed, we should be shopping Scherbak around now. I don’t see him cracking our lineup any time soon.

    DLR is also expendable for me. All three (DLo as well) really, but I’d guess Scherbak would be easiest to move between the 3.

    DLo isn't getting waived before at least playing a few games.

    Peca really hasn't impressed at all.

    I agree, though he did score on a breakaway in the scrimmage when the whole other team went for a change.

    I would not sacrifice DLR or Scherbak for him.

    With his salary and term, $1.3M x 2 years, I think it unlikely he gets picked up on waivers, when he has been mostly a career AHLer and quite small to boot (some teams seem to value size).

    In all likelyhood, we'll get other injuries before we get to that point.

    I disagree. He’s better than De La Rose. Peca skates and has grit.

    He has shorter legs, but he does not get from point A to point B faster than DLR. Jacob is one of our fastest skaters, and he has size and forechecks effectively with it.

    He’s definitely faster than DLR, not sure what you’re talking about. Taller does not mean faster. DLR is soft and slow with the puck. He’s not NHL material. Peca is a perfect 4th line player at the NHL level.

    He's only average 10 minutes a game, I would give him more time.

    I don’t want to lose DLR and Scherbak.

    Don’t really care for Peca and Plekanec.

    I’m guessing Scherbak will be traded though.

    Not that we're wishing anyone harm but somehow, teams always manage to find someone with a timely ailment to place on IR.

    I think they are going to send Kotkaniemi to Finland or Laval. That'll buy them some time. Then it looks like Plekanec would be next in line. Unless they can conjure up injuries for another month or so.

    Scherbak probably. After that tough call maybe Kotka gets sent to Laval.

    We should trade Pleks. See if Chicago still wants him.

    FWIW, Bergevin was on AC last week.

    And one of the topics was what will he do with Scherbak.

    He said that he would be reticent to waive him as he has skills and size and that he had an inkling that there are teams who would want to take a chance on a such a young player. He also said that he'd hate to see the player bloom somewhere else on account of giving up on him too soon.

    While I don't value anything Bergevin says, I believe that this indicates that they're either going to wait on him or try to trade him, but not outright waive him. They're going to look for some other way.

    Scherbak is probably going to be traded for depth players or a 5th.

    First rounders last ten years:
    Kotkaniemi - top3 pick
    Poehling - unknown
    Sergachev - traded for a 40-50 points winger
    Juulsen - just breaking through, hasn't produced a lick
    Scherbak - bust
    McCarron - bust
    Galchenyuk - 50ish point player
    Beaulieu - just about done in the NHL, ~20 point d-man who is bad at d
    Tinordi - bust in NHL, 10 point d-man who is bad in general
    Louis Leblanc - bust in NHL, headcase

    For fun, the ten years before:
    Pacioretty - great NHLer
    McDonagh - great NHLer (overrated by many)
    Fischer - mega bust
    Price - fantastic NHLer
    Chipchura - pseudo-bust/grinder
    Higgins - average NHLer
    Perezhogin - bust
    Komisarek - average NHLer
    Hossaa - bust
    Rainsey - average NHLer

    Sending Ouellet down would be the smartest thing for the moment.

    HF Habs: no one wants to sign in Montreal because of our bush league management.
