    If you get to 10, then you're going to get a shot at a player like Dobson, Boqvist, Veleno, or so on... to get up to 7 would give you a shot at someone like Bouchard, Hughes, Wahlstrom, or Kotkaniemi. The question I'll ask if whether that second group of players is really head and shoulders above the first group. I definitely like that Hughes and Kotkaniemi, but I think there's enough discrepancy of opinion that it's not a guarantee they're clearly seen as better.

    The other name that I'll throw out who's starting to interest me is Rasmus Kupari, another Finnish center who's got a ton of skill... good shot, good playmaker (albeit maybe not as good as JK), and maybe a better skater than JK. He's not viewed as highly, and a lot of people think Florida or Columbus would grab him if he falls to the middle of the round. But he's a guy where, if you can trade into the 10-14 range you'd likely have a good chance at getting. He needs work, but from what I've seen/read, maybe he's got an outside shot at becoming a #1 center.

    I would rather  be proactive and go get the players you want . A few years ago I wanted Montreal to trade up to get Anthony Mantha  .

  2. I wonder if a trade for Edmonton's 10th pick could be done . Then flip that pick with one of the second rounders to move up to 5th to 7th pick . Then Montreal could come away with both Zadina and Kotkaniemi or Bouchard .

    Another thing the habs have lacked is in the goal scorers department .With Zadina setting there at three  ,you take him. If you can get another pick at 10th,11th,or 12th ,there are a couple of good centers in that area I like Veleno,Hayton,Dellandrea,or Mcleod .With the second round picks ,i would hope montreal is looking at guys like Neol,Groulx McIsaac,Beaudin,Drury,Sutter,Fortier,Bouchard and O'reilly.

  4. Max is from the New York area, so lets make a deal with the Islanders . Max to the islanders for Kieffer Bellows,Anthony Beauvillier,and one of these defenseman Johnny Boychuk or Ryan Puluck.If you have to add Jodie Benn to get it done ,do it.Give up a 2nd round pick to Winnipeg for Nic Petan . Now in the of season trade Price , Weber and Andrew Shaw to Edmonton for Jesse Puljujarvi,Leon Draisaitl,Darnell Nurse and Cam Talbot.If you have to add a 2nd round pick to sweeten the deal do it.

    Scout updates:

    - Edm and Chi each have two scouts at our game tonight. Dal has one.

    - Habs have another scout at the Leafs/Sens game tonight. That's 3 games in about a week where we've been scouting Toronto. Wonder if there's something to it, and you've got to think they need help on the back end. Who do we have who's going to be a boon to them? Weber. Petry could also be a fit, but a guy I'd hope MB would be less willing to trade (unless he's also dealing everyone else). And if he's trading someone like Benn or Alzner or Schlemko to Toronto, we're probably not getting a roster player back, so it wouldn't help us to scout their NHL roster so often. Gotta feel like this is a Weber for someone deal that's being looked into. Gotta feel like it's Nylander who would be the key guy we're looking at too. My ask would be Weber for Nylander, Liljegren, and a 2nd round pick.

    If we could get this for Weber ,what could we get for Max P.?
