    Habs have an excess of wingers and we're lacking a good defensive/puck moving presence on the blue line, anyone good available?

    Could also take a lower value defensive LHD (still has to be young and have good upside) plus a winger for Drouin.

    Sergachev is a forward, not a dman ;)

    What's the point of this? Drouin is producing, and the Habs are winning.

    To make our team better by trading a position of strength for a position of weakness.

    Why is it a joke? I've been following Sergachev since 1 year before his draft year, he can't play D and has very low defensive iq. He has no d-zone awareness, he just stands there like a pylon and stares at the puck. He plays on his heels not his toes.

    Petition your GM to see if you can create a package for Gardiner.

    He turns the puck over quite a bit.

    What are examples of defensive PMD? Seems a bit contradictory...

    Like, maybe just build a puck passing robot that sits like a pylon near the goal but whips any puck it touches to a teammate.

    Stylistically players like Brodin, Lindholm etc. Not asking for these guys specifically, they're just examples of good/mobile defensive dmen.

    Could even be a defensively responsible small dman, someone like Spurgeon (he's an RHD tho).

    Any interest in Yegor Rykov+Buchnevich?
    Rykov is looking like a potential top 4 PMD, doing good in the KHL right now
    Buchnevich could use a change of scenery

    Forsling has no value and Saad wasn't good last season and he's getting healthy scratched this year, why would we do this?

    Gonna have to pass, not enough quality to make the swap.

    Spurgeon is not going to MTL for Drouin. Be happy you got Reilly from us, and leave it at that.
