Big no for me. 

Im not opposed to trading Domi but Im not trading him + our first rounder (unless we go deep &  it ends up being 30th) for anything less than a #1 LHD.

Gaudreau is good - very good - would  easily be our most talented forward but he would get ridden hard by Julien. Ive watched him a lot over the years out here and he's not a very good defender. He's also tiny - like 5'9 or something - which is offset in calgary but here would be yet another smallish forward. I know Domi's no giant but he's solid - probably 30lbs heavier than Johnny Hockey.  He's also almost 2 years older than Domi which is something to consider at least (he's still relatively young though). 


I know it seems odd since we're talking about a guy who nearly broke 100 points a year ago but I dont think he'd be a great fit on our team & im certainly not trading away a package that could likely get us a true #1LD and solve a lot more problems than JG ever could.

Just my 2¢ though.

I saw on another site a post suggesting that the Habs should trade Domi + 2020 1st (lottery protected) + 2020 3rd (Montreal) for Jonny Gaudreau. Was wondering how everyone here would feel if this trade happened both if we win the Play in or if we lost.

Definite No.  Way too much.  & we get even smaller!

Definite no on that trade. Sending Domi some where might work. 

Say Domi, Alzner and Weal for Malkin. Really believe Malkin would be great in Montreal. Pittsburg looks ready to make that kind of move.

Im pretty sure Pittsburgh could still get more for Malkin, despite his age. I think you could possibly make that deal work if you threw in a top prospect or pick though.

Still, id rather take Domi (and possibly package him with someone like Mete) and flip for a high end young LD.

I actually would like to keep Domi. We just need to keep him with offensive players he can play off of. Also if he's okay at be utilized on the wing that works aslo.

I dont mind keeping him - there's honestly no player on this roster that i really want to dump - but when you look at our positional strength, LW and C are the positions we're strongest at right now.

We have good players at every position but some (LD, RW) are missing higher end players.  If one of those guys can get us an equal or better player at a position we're weaker at then I think you take that deal.  

Not sure its likely - and id probably be more inclined to move Drouin vs. Domi but I do think its something id at least be looking at if i was GM.

no player?

I'm still getting rid of Drouin. Very overated, and consistently disappears.

Improvement by substraction.

Pittsburgh might be willing to move Malkin, but... Alzner and Weal??? Lol why in the world would Pittsburgh want either of them? And don’t get me wrong, I like Weal. They might have some interest in Domi, but the other pieces would have to be way juicier than Alzner and Weal. Domi, Poehling, JK and a 1st, maybe. 
Not that I would make that trade, but I’m sure they’d want a lot.

Also, nothing to do with Johnny Hockey, and not sure if Domi would be of interest in this deal or not, but... What do you think the ask would be for Anthony Mantha from Detroit? Think Yzerman would have any interest in Domi? Lol doubt he’d be interested in Drouin. But I would love to see Mantha in a Hab sweater!

I would do it. Throw in a second, maybe a defenceman.  We get bigger with a true forward coming back? Make it happen!

Yes. There's no player on the roster id dump.  I'll happily trade many players if there was an actual return but im not dumping them for nothing, even Drouin.

I assume Alzner would be to offset part of the salary.

I think the time to get Mantha has passed.  A couple of years ago he was apparently not in favour but he's had a good stretch & I dont see them moving him.  I like the thinking though - and RW is definitely a place we could stand to get better.

I hear that they would like to get a top 6 center. If they viewed Domi as a #2, coupled with a top prospect defenceman, maybe a Mete or Juulsen, plus a 2nd rounder in this years' draft, could be a starting point.  Detroit has many glaring holes to fill. They would at least be filling one on 'D'.

But do you think they'd give up Mantha to do it? Im not so sure. 

Would definitely be interested if they did.


That said, I wouldnt get rid of both Domi and Drouin. One or the other.

Yes.  One or the other. Montreal has deveral depth pieces as well as several  draft picks. Of course, if Stevie Y. deems Mantha as an untouchable, this is all moot.
