"It’s an honor to wear the Geoffrion name on the back and to be a part of this family and the tradition here in Montreal, Pressure comes along with that, but I’m my own player. I’ll just play as hard as I can." - Blake Geoffrion - New York Times March 1 2012

Either - I woud guess the former but he is largely unproven.

Well,,,he is 24,,,,but had a good stint with the Dogs, with 12 PTs. in 9 games. IMO, he had better show something in training camp, in order for him to stay with the big club.

We'll be very happy to have him back in Hamilton - I think this guy has good NHL potential though and you gotta love the backstory!

I have a feeling That Blake may stay in Hamilton this season as one of the veteran AHLers the Habs have at LW.Someone has to show these rookies what it entails to go to the Show.Blake can inspire as a third generation NHL player trying to carve his own niche with the Habs on the 3rd or 4th line soon.Also the Habs would gain a better draft choice due to the trade with Nashville.

Yup

Probably destined for Hamilton or a 4 th line call up ( injuries )

Agreed.

I don't know what PG was thinking acquiring BG. Nostalgic factor aside, I doubt PG would've made a play for him if his name wasn't Geffrion.

I don't see this kid breaking the top 6. With White, Moen, Prust, Eller, LL, Armstrong, Nokie, etc... he'll have a hard time breaking into the bottom 6 as well.

When packaged with a second round pick in exchange for Hal Gill I had and still have no problem with that deal.

No but I feel like I dont want to trade him because of the nostalgia, it was the first thing I thought when I saw him wow id like to get that guy and have him be a member of the Canadiens. Now theres no room for him seemingly unless he works hard in camp and wins that open roster spot on the 2nd/3rd line.

Getting a 2nd rounder, Geoffrion, and Slaney as a throw-in for the pylon Gill is an absolute steal.

<edit>

Nothing for nothing gets you nothing

The Habs gave up someone ( Gill ) who they had no intenion of re signing and at the present time all we have to show for it are " proispects ".

I wouldn't exactly call it a steal ..........yet .

We gave up nothing for something. Out of Dalthon Thrower, Blake Geoffrion, and Robert Slaney, you have to think at least 1 of them will be a valuable NHLer or fetch us something in a trade. ;)

I would much rather have 3 prospects than one 37 year old gill for a full 2011-12 season.

I loved Gill but it was a smart move to make and the return was way higher than I thought it'd be

Absolutely

It's better to get something and hope that what you get turns out to eb a serviceable player rather than take the BG route and lose the player for nothing

All I said was , " I wouldn't call it a steal .........yet "

Steals are Cammilieri for Bourque , Spacek for Kaberle, McDon??? for Gomez ........lol

By the same logic I wouldn't call the Cammalleri for Bourque trade a steal yet, as the jury's still out on both the 2nd rounder in 2013 and Patrick Holland. Besides, Bourque can still be a valuable player for us - in theory at least. Not that I'm expecting much from him but the chance is still there.

Spacek for Kaberle isn't exactly what I'd call a steal either, they got rid of Kaberle's salary and that's it. We didn't give up anything of great value and if they weren't forced to operate under a self-imposed Cap, the trade would've probably never happened.

McDonagh+ for Gomez+ was a steal for sure though, just like Niinimaa for Ribeiro or Boyd for Kostitsyn...
