  1. According to one well placed source at least, the Habs have been discussing a "Big buy that would rival the newsworthiness of the PK Subban trade. A deal that would be aimed at separating them from the rest of the pack in the East."


    Source - latest article from Eklund on HockeyBuzz, take it for what it's worth.

    A full point stronger? 



    Apparently, which is actually pretty interesting. 


    I used this tool to try and throw some other trades together and all of the outcomes were surprisingly realistic. Obviously, there are some other not so tangible factors that this tool probably doesn't account for (trade deadline, trade blocks, team desperateness, rebuilds, etc. 


    Fun to play with, though.

    Yup. I wouldn't mind Cody Eakin, but he's a 3rd line player in my opinion. Jason Spezza could be a 2nd line center, but he's drastically overpaid for his age. I'd of course gladly welcome Seguin or Benn, but I don't think we'll ever get one of those two. I'd stay away from Sharp, Roussel, and Hudler.

    To me, we're better off looking for a deal with a team like the Oilers or Avs or Canes or Canucks, someone who isn't really going to be close to winning soon. I'm much more interested in Duchene, RNH, Skinner, etc. than anyone the Stars will be making available. As I've noted before, I also really like the thought of adding Couturier, but Philly's going to want something back in return. I really think MB's best play here is to move Emelin. His value has never been higher, we don't really have the option of protecting him in the expansion draft (I'd go Weber, Petry, Beaulieu over him), and he is one guy who could bring value back here who we could afford to lose (I'm ok going Beaulieu, Markov, Barberio down the left side).

    In your opinion, which one of those teams is in dire need of someone like Emelin?
