Habs Trying To Acquire Brad Boyes

Recommended Posts

It seems that Bob Gainey is trying to get Brad Boyes into la sainte flannelle

here's a link

<link removed; others forums do not count as a source>

So the rumored trade is

to Mtl

Brad Boyes

possibly another asset

to St-L

SK74

MaxPac

1st rd 2010

Boyes is under contract for this season and 2 more at 4mil per. He's had 40+ and 30+ goal seasons, he's 6'0'' 195lbs R handed C/RW

This works under our cap this season and may need tweeking to fit it in for the next 2.....

but....

My question is, do you do this?

Imagine the top 6 lineup

Camm - Gomez - Gionta

AK - Pleks - Boyes

If Gainey can pull this off it will easily be his best move yet.Do it.

Yep, for certain... However, why would St. Louis make this trade? St. Louis, last season, showed that they might be ready to start getting back into the post-season on a regular basis, so why deal one of your best (maybe THE best) forward you have?

I would make that deal in a second.

I doubt it will happen, though. :(

To answer your question absolutely YES !!! However, my question is, why would St. Louis even think of trading Boyes, they have a very good team that is winning and are not in need of cap dollars. This is a strange rumor.

There doesn't happen to be a viable source for this rumor?

But playing along I'd be okay I guess if SK74 is still demanding a trade. Couldn't they send us a little something else since we appear to be throwing our future away. A D-man prospect or how about a top 4 D-man? :lol: How about a top 6 D-man? Okay then, just Boyes. :huh:

Boyes is a quality player in his prime. You wanna get, you have to give. A deal, like what's presented above, is entirely fair for someone like Boyes. And quite frankly, Sergei K. has zero value now anyway. Boyes could score us 30 goals and 40 assists under the right circumstances. Maybe even better if he had a great year. Giving up a 1st rounder, Max Pacioretty, and Sergei K. for that would be the easiest deal in the world if I was G.M.

That's always scary.

I would suggest that they may be more interested in getting the K-Bros together (which would be alright by me btw) for Brad Boyes... and dollarwise it works better for both teams IMO... and there would be no need to lose a Pacioretty.

The source is just some guy they call DT "Deep Throught"

But really, this is just for fun.

If this is real though, I would do this deal. It hurts to give up young talent like Patches but you have to give to get.

Why would the Blues do this? Could be cash reasons, could be he quietly asked for a trade, could be the GM is on crack (I'd like the 3rd reason so we could offer up some crack and a smoked meat sandwich instead of Patches).

:lol:

i'd be pretty jazzed to get a player like boyes but, as it stands, i have no clue what happens to our team next season cap-wise let alone with an additional $4mil salary.

would we have to go through sweeping changes all over again?!

With A.Kostitsyn' 3.25 million +Sergei off the books I see no real problem.

bigsby, I'm disappointed in you. There is a generic answer to solve the cap problem - trade Hamrlik for a bag of pucks. :lol:

Because St. Louis wouldn't be interested in aquiring Roman Hamrlik. :rolleyes: None of this makes sense... Brad Boyes is, more than likely, not going to be traded. It's fun to imagine that he WOULD be traded, but it seems highly unlikely.

I was being sarcastic

Is there not a better source for this story? No offense at all to the site that the OP linked, but until I see it on multiple sites (RDS, TSN, etc.) I'm not believing it...

I put this in for fun and as a "What would you do" kind of thing. Besides, its alot more credible than anything from eklund!!!!

Folks, when a rumor comes from another message board, and starts off "member of another site, got this from a different site" Its not legit.

Say what you will about Eklund (trust me, most of the moderating team here doesnt like him any more than you) but he does have a 'real' site with some fairly credible writers, which is why we've allowed his rumors to be posted here.

If we allow every post from other message boards, we'd have about 100,000,000 rumors to sift through.

Closed.

And thats why it deserves to go into the existing thread: "If i were Gm" ;)
