  1. If Gally goes on LITR How about Armeia for Palmeiri with NJ  Retaining some salary.    Also Mete for Gubranson with Ottawa retainking some salary.  Gally comes back for playoffs and  we still have a scoring RW in Palmeirit and Gubranson will slot in nicely on right side with Romanov.   Stil should have cap room to manager roster comfortably. 

  2. How about the Habs trade Kulak to Ottawa for Gubranson.  Ottawa retains difference in salary to make Cap work.  Habs could add a third if necessary to get it done.  Gubranson would pair on the right side with Romanov.

    Time will tell but this kid has the hands and we have some better centers right now to pass to him with our more forward thinking coaching I think this kid will fir right in. he has grown into each level he has played at and he seems to have the fire to get it done I am pretty pumped to see him here same as I was for Suzuki we have done some good drafting recently.

    Well most likely he will be staying put so if that is the case hopefully he comes in and lights it up for us.

    What if you could do say... Price + Caufield + 1st  for Eichel?


     ( i know it wouldnt happen because there's no way Price waives his NMC to go to Barfalo but just for fun)... 



    I would do it but Price has a no move and no way he will go to Buffalo.

    I'm not thinking it'll take years. His center, Jack Hughes started in the NHL right away. Auston Matthews went right into the NHL after his draft year.  CC has had 2 years to develop his skill set. He's going to be with the Habs, this year! MMW's. For more pertinent CC info please go to the CC thread. Lots of interesting reads there.

    Maybe So.  Or could be like Filip Zadeno (  supposed can't miss Sniper ) , Higher Draft pick than CC (6 in  2018 ) lit up the Q and World Juniors. Still under development.

    Well, there have been a few soft, sniper type players in the NHL over the years. Michel Bossy, Pierre Larouche, maybe Patrick Kane, Jouny Gaudrea, even Guy Lafleur, Alex Debrincat and others. I'm not saying CC will be like these players, but in the right environement, CC can be a success. I don't think we have anyone as good a shooter as CC. Put CC on the PP or 3 on 3..........

    Ok Fair Enough.  No question the Kid is a great Prospect but he is a Prospect and it could be years before he develops into a good Pro.   If you have to include him as a corner piece in a deal to get Eichel I think they should do it.

    Not giving up Caufield. No way. No how. I 'll gamble on his potential to be an NHL sniper.

    Well he certainly has a big time release and shot.  Really small though and when he stepped up in competition ( twice at World Juniors ) he looked kinda ordinary. The question  is whether or not in the Pro Ranks if he will go to the net .  Tough to score conistently at the highest levels if you are going to hang on the perimeter.   Honestly I haven't seen him play enough to know if has any of Brengan Gallaghers kind of toughness. He will need at least some of it. 

  8. Crosby is too old. Eichel is a 24 year old franchise type center.  Only a few in the whole league.  Habs haven't  had a center as good in forever. Tatar and Danault will be UFA's and Byron is overpaid by aboout 2 Million per year.  Prospects and Draft Picks are always a gamble. Forget Eichel performance this year. Burffalo is a mess.

    I'd do it but everyone here is convinced caufield is 50 goal scorer 

    Well maybe but 50 goal scorers are rare and given his small stature he may end up being more of a situational type guy.  

  10. How about the Habs send Byron , Danault and Tatar  ( To make the Cap work )  and Caufield, Guhle and a First to Buffalo for Eichel,  Habs new first line would be Toffoli, Eichel, Gallagher.  Burffalo gets some nice pieces to begin rebuild.
