Latest Montreal Canadiens Trade Rumors

21 Aug 2014 15:59:24
With 7 players (Myers, McCormick, Gionta, Hodgson, Ennis, Moulson & Gorges) signed for the next 3 to 5 years, and Pysyk, Ristolainen, Girgensons & Ullmark not among the 8 future Sabres in the ESPN top 100 NHL prospects it makes players as Stafford, Stewart, Foligno, Enroth, Weber & Mitchell very expendable and should be traded as soon as possible for picks, prospects, players or future considerations. IMO Murray should sign Dustin Penner, Devin Setoguchi, Andrei Loktionov, Jamie McBain & Raphael Diaz, as place holders until the kids are ready (at the trading deadline maybe they also could be moved for future assests).
MTL needs: One top six forward, one top four defencemen, three more defencemen.
Stewart (retain 50%) and Weber to MTL for 2nd & 3rd 2015
BOS needs: One top line forward, backup goaltender.
Stafford (retain 50%), Jhonas Enroth to BOS for 2nd & 3rd 2015
TML needs: Three top nine forwards, depth forwards, one top pair defenceman
Foligno, Flynn & Mitchell to TML for 2nd 2016 and 3rd 2015 and maybe David Clarkson for cap relief
I welcome constructive feedback if you believe this to be unbelievable.

I heard that the Canadiens were talking to Chicago about sharp so I made this trade.

MTL: Galchenyuk, 2nd, 3rd, (in 2015)

CHI: Sharp, 2nd, (in 2016)

plgg48


Puts the Habs pretty far over the cap, but as a Chicago native I'd be pretty happy with that trade.

Montreal would NEVER trade chucky

habsfan4life


Galchenyuk is untouchable

Cd1


I wouldn't trade Galchenyuk straight up for Sharp, let alone adding picks. He is much younger and has the promise of being a #1 centre.

kgrave


It's clear Montreal fans think Galchenyuk is going to be a monster. Thing is, Sharp is already a monster and you have to pay big for players like that.

So I get it, you (the person sitting at the computer) would not trade Galchenyuk for Sharp, but I guarantee Chicago would be asking for him in a trade, and if not you're trading someone else with high upside.

What would it take to get Jordan Subban to MTL?

If a deal was to go down I could see it happening like this.

MTL- J.Subban

VAN-M.Ellis 5th round pick

habsfan76


20 Aug 2014 03:50:15
Take away the 5 round pick

habsfan4life


More than he is worth.montreal would have to overpay

Drgonzo


Why would vancouver do this? Ellis looks like a career ahler, if j Subban has half the talent pk has he will be a regular in the nhl. Vancouver declines.

I doubt montreal would be willing to give up 5 prospects

Habfan2


That's a lot for Kane. A lot of nothing.the draft picks have some value and plekanec has a couple descent years left but those prospects kinda suck and Winnipeg wants talent not bodies

Mr_enlightened


Gallagher is untouchable right now. The aim is to get another scoring winger, not lose one.

Lol ^this is terrible. Kevin Hayes is a free agent dude. It takes a special kind of person to make this post and not know he is ufa. The Florida deal is descent I suppose.I think Washington gm mushroom slaps you for asking for 1 and 3 round picks, not even close dude

Mr_enlightened


Personally, I would love the idea of the habs having the hayes brothers together, two big, power forwards together on the same team, let alone the same line. however, kevin is a FA and I think to trade for jimmy would cost maybe someone else other than bourque, maybe thomas, nygren and a late pick. other than that I wish as a habs fan this could happen

piccante1


Jimmy Hayes is a 4th liner with 3rd line potential just like Dale Weise. No way he's going for a goal scoring right wing prospect in Thomas. Maybe just Bourque and a late pick.

You would have to give up more than Bournival in all of those trades

Charles Xavier


It doesn't clear out roster room when you bring in another player.

JF12


If you want to clear up roster room why bring back another roster player?

Drownedfish


17 Aug 2014 01:47:36
If its to clear up roster room then why is it 1 for 1?

x karlsson x 65


Drew Shore is better than bournival, in my opinion. The Mcginn trade seems equal but SJ doesn't need bournival.
And bournival is better than Belesky
but Anaheim doesn't want to give up Belesky.

To NSH- David Desharnais
To MTL - Gabriel Bourque, Mike Ribiero, 2016 2nd

NYItradeNYI


Desharnais is worth Ribiero OR Bourque, not both, and definitely not both and a pick. He's on a line with Pacioretty, how could he not better than he is?

Chirp


Impossible that ribiero comes to mtl after his problems this year. MB would never let a guy like this in mtl

Cd1


^Desharnais went 5 games with 7 points without Pacioretty playing. He may not be a #1 center but he definatley is a good 2nd line C.

Habfan2


Well I guess we should value him based on a selective 5 games, huh? Gimme a break. He's not worth a package like that at all.

14 Aug 2014 22:14:37
Montreal: Tomas Plekanec

Vancouver: Radim Vrabata and 3rd round pick

Canucks get someone to replace Kesler except for the physicality and habs get a rw.

habsfan22


15 Aug 2014 00:34:11
you do realize vrbata just signed in VAN less than 2 months ago, right?

Shankar


Wake up dude. Vrbata just signed with Vancouver.free agents will not sign with a team if players sign multi year deals and get traded before playing 1 game with that team.

Drgonzo


Vancouver just signed him and if bergevin wanted vrbata he could have signed him on july 1st

Cd1


Sign and trades rarely happen, Vrbata hasn't played a single game for the Canucks . the Habs could have just signed him as a UFA.

ATH Hockey


You know because newly signed UFAS get traded in the same off-season they sign with a new team.

-ovies hero


Habs pass. If they wanted him that bad to give up Plekanec then they would of signed him

Habfan2


Ok guys we don't need 7 of you commenting the same thing

Drownedfish


^
Posts on this site are updated, what, twice a day? No one knew there was another person posting the same thing. But the fact that they all posted the same thing is a testament to how dumb the idea was to begin with.

Chirp


For some reason I feel like chirp is an automated computer

Jordiebenn


I just want somebody that can be a good rw.

habsfan22


Joffrey lupul for Tomas plekanec might help both teams. Which team adds in you're opinions and who?

Drgonzo


Neither team because that trade will never happen with the Habs-Leafs Rivalry.

habsfan22


Yeah drgonzo the value is fair but neither team would do this

Cd1


@habsfan22 Leafs had a deal worked out with Montreal for gorges about a month ago. Gorges didn't want to go to toronto.

Drgonzo


Ok cd 1 why not?

Drgonzo


@jordiebenn
Is it because I don't post absolute nonsensical garbage at every turn? I guess I don't fit in with a lot of folks on this site now do I?

Chirp


No its because you said Posts on this site are updates every, what twice a day, and you sounded like one

Jordiebenn


Yeah so y would pleky want to go to a losing team? @Drgonzo

habsfan22


That question is stupid habsfan22. You don't know whether plekanec wants to play in toronto so how could drgonzo answer that. Also it's the offseason leafs and habs have the same record and both teams should be competitive this year

Mr_enlightened


That doesn't make sense habsfan22.montreal traded grabovski to toronto a couple years ago.sure Montreal would rather trade plekanec elsewhere but they will take the best deal they can get.i can't speak for Tomas plekanec about whether he wants to play in toronto but neither can you. And I never said he wanted to come here but if he likes playing in Montreal I think he'd like playing in toronto. Similar environment and less French.

Drgonzo


French people are ok in my books lol I just don't like hearing them speak French that's all I meant by that.

Drgonzo


Lupol is oft injured and too fragile.
I guess that is one way to open up a roster spot!

That would put montreal over cap and I don't want to get rid of thrower he is going to be a tank in the nhl

Habfan2


Why would Mtl do this? They have plenty of 3rd and 4th liners.
Mtl had Higgins before and grew tired of his act.

bcampoli


Higgins and Hansen are good 3rd liners but I doubt Mtl gives up thrower he looks like a good prospect.

potential 1st line fits for montreal

mtl: bourque, pateryn, nygren, 3rd
det: abdelkader, 6th

mtl: plekanec,tokarski,2nd
was: M.johansson, volapatti

mtl: bourque, nygren, moen, hudon, 3rd
SJ: wingels, mcginn, sheppard, torres

a player of each deal who can play with DD and Pac, plus some extra depth from the other teams in every deal

thoughts?

Abdelkader isn't 1st line material.

habsfan22


Funny that you say that.

None of the players acquired are first line material.

Sabers are going for a big draft this year trying to get a lot of prospects

BUF: Myers, Mitchell, 4th

MTL: 1st, Toakarski, 4th

HabsFanThatIsNotBiased


Myers and a 5th for Galchenyuk and Beaulieu.

steamer


It would take more than Myers and a 5th to land Galchenyuk not to mention Beaulieu

Charles Xavier


IMO the 1st trade is close but BUF does not need a GK, here is a counter for fairly similar talent: BUF trades Tyler Myers & Torrey Mitchell to MTL for 1st & Jacob De La Rose
The 2nd trade really favors the SBR, does this even it a bit? Tyler Myers, Brycen Martin & Eric Cornel for Alex Galchenyuk, Nathan Beaulieu & 4th

habs4ever


^ maybe from Montreal's perspective, but Buffalo is convinced this guy is the second coming of Chara.

THEGR81


I think Murray would make the Galchenyuk trade. Among Reinhart, Gregorenko and Galchenyuk it would give the SBR three centers to choice for their top 2 and give SBR 3 Russians on their team. Finally, Nathan Beaulieu could take Myers spot on defense.

habs4ever


He could be better than chara seeing as how Myers is a strong skater.buffalo should keep him.

Here we go Ottawa need to accept This since they don't got a center who can play 1 line!so
Ottawa: bobby ryan
Montreal: desharnais and wild 2 rounder
It may seem unfair but its no secret ryan won't resign to Ottawa so they get something in exchange + gatineau fans are going to be happy since is french

Montrealfinest


12 Aug 2014 20:27:27
how do you know ryan isn't resigning in ottawa? they have about 10 months still to come up with a deal

Shankar


You won't be seeing Ryan in a habs jersey for that garbage.

steamer


Desharnais is not a 1st line center. I would much rather keep ottawas centers as turria zibanejad legwand and smith.

Ct


Turris is miles better than dd

Jordiebenn


So ritchie, nosenen, silferberg for desharnais and a second. yup fair

Jordiebenn


Turris is already better than Deharnias and Zibanejab and Lazar are going to be better than him as well. And Ryan will go for a little bit less than what Spezza not this garbage

Charles Xavier


Turris is better than Desharnais

Leafs17


LOL! I see MontrealsWorst is still at it with his ridiculously one-sided and awful trades. Even if Ryan leaves Ottawa, any other team in the league would offer up much better than that.

Chirp


13 Aug 2014 01:29:09
HOLY SH*T! SHUT UP, JUST SHUT UP!
1. Ryan said he loves playing in Ottawa and is positive on resigning with Ottawa
2. We already have Turris, Legwand, Zibanejad, Lazar, Smith and they're all better than DD.
3. Turris had more points then DD and Legwand had 1 point less than DD. So no, no we don't need a top center
So instead of posting stupid trades like this, go watch 1 hockey game and you'll realize how stupid this post was.

DA BOSS8


Desharnais will be in the khl in 3 years

Mr_enlightened


So Versteeg and a 2nd should work just fine for Patches then. Or Bailey and a 2nd since the Isles have space right? there's always anger created when you post these lopsided trades. Too much anger and hate. No one posts realistic rumors all the time bud, but try and ask what you would want from the Canadiens if you were the other teams GM/owner. Legitimate possibilities are always more fun to discuss with our brethren.

HockeyGodsGift


Well said hockeygodsgift.@daboss bobby ryan will not be the first athlete to say he loves it there, plans to resign and then sign with another team.

Drgonzo


Deharnais never has and never will be a first line center.

JF12


Montrealfinest IF Ryan had to go don't you think that AT LEAST 10 OTHER TEAMS WOULD HAVE BETTER OFFERS THAN YOU. Oh yeah forgot u don't think.

MTL trade David Desharnais (retain 50%) to PHI for Vincent Lecavalier & Robert Hagg

habs4ever


Desharnais has a decent contract but Lecavilalier on the other hand has a aweful contract. You would have to retain 50% of Lecavilalier's contract for this to work but even the Montreal would decline

Habfan2


No chance! Especially with the retained salary. That would push Mtl way over the cap. I'd take DD over Vinny. Vinny is getting old.

Wheelin n Dealin


Plekanec for Lecavalier is fair

Draisaitl_94


Interesting

Charles Xavier


Vinny is over the hill. It was between Mtl and Philly and Mtl went only to 3 years at 4M.
Philly gave him a stupid ridiculous contract. Now they cannot give Vinny away even if they are willing to retain half the contract.
Vinny had a 1M bonus due July 1st. Philly paid him. You think he would be easier to move? Nope. No one wants him.

Montreal trades Plekanec, Nyrgen, 1st and 3rd in '15 to Edmonton for Yakupov and 2nd in '15 or '16

Value of the players:

Plekanec is the 2C Edmonton has been searching for. Plays a complete game. Plays powerplay, kills penalties, brings veteran leadership though quietly and more through his play and actions than words. His contract comes up soon and Edmonton could potentially sign him for under 5 million per using him as 2C until Draisaitl is ready for that job and become the 3C giving Edmonton more than solid depth down the middle.

Nygren is a offensive right handed D man with a bomb of a shot. He would be a power play specialist for an Edmonton team though revamped on d this off season don't have a big shot up top.

The 1st and 3rd in 15 would equal to another prospect going to Edmonton.

The idea of Yakupov and Galchenyuk playing together in it's self is enough to why Montreal would do this trade and why Edmonton would have the leverage in trade talks and why Montreal would have to over pay. Though a defensive liability Montreal plays a team game and can cover up for him like they do with DD.

Lines.
Montreal
Pacioretty- DD - Gallagher
Sekac- Galchneyuk- Yakupov
Bournival- Eller- Paranteu
Weise- Maholtra- Bourque

Edmonton

Hall- RNH- Eberle
Perron- Plekanec- Purcell
Pouliot- Gordon - Arcobello
Joensuu- Hendricks- Gazdic

Walleedj


You can't even compare Yakapovs defensive game to Desharnais' because they are no where close. Desharnais actually knows what to do when he's in their own end.

Habfan2


Yakupov for Del la Rose, Beaulieu and McCarron.

steamer


That sounds fair to me steamer

Charles Xavier


@ habsfan2 dd is a terrible defensive hockey player.end of debate.

Drgonzo


Hall, RNH, and Yak for Bourque.

Fair and done deal. Well as fair as other person suggestions in THIS stream.

Book it!

Mtl: moen(25% cap retain), 6th
Edm: hendricks

Hendricks had good stats with a struggling oilers team, and on a line with prust and weise, he should be a good energy guy to have on the fourth line

Then hopefully try and sign K.Hayes

Bottom six:
Bourque-Eller-Hayes
Prust-weise-hendricks

Thoughts??

piccante1


Since you asked, I think it's getting real old seeing guys no one wants like Moen and Budaj in every single Hab rumor. Even guys like Eller, DD and Plekanec who have value are in almost every Hab proposal. New material please! Try some originality.

HockeyGodsGift


What happens to Malholtra? He's better suited for 4th line minutes.

habsfan22


12 Aug 2014 16:08:28
You are right he would be a good addition to that line for Mtl.

But Hendriks is an important defensive 4th liner for the Oilers, there's no way they let him go for Moen + garb pick.

Wheelin n Dealin


I noticed you only outlined the benefits of this trade for the Habs and not the Oilers. I guess that's because it's not beneficial at all for the Oilers. Hendricks for Dubnyk was a steal and he is a solid part of the bottom-6 and the leadership on the oilers. They have no desire to make a trade for a cap hit and a late pick.

Chirp


HAH! No thanks Moen is going to the KHL or retires. Hendricks is could be an excellent 3rd/4th liner. I would have him on my team any day. Rather than Moen and a 6th.
The habs fan on this website are crazy.
So this makes sense to you:
Hendricks for a 6th round pick.
The only way Moen is going somewhere is to the KHL. BIG UNBELIEVABLE TRADE

Oilersblue1707


Khl says no thanks on Moen.moen plays beer league hockey.

Drgonzo


Maybe Moen does play in the beer league but he would know a lot of people there as most of Leaf and half the Oil already play there.

MTL: T. Plekanec, J. de la Rose, J. Tinordi, M. Nygren, 2nd rd 2015

for

CLB: B. Jenner, K. Rychel, D. Savard

Put Dubinsky at 1st LW and Plekanec at 2nd C, de la Rose is similar to what Jenner was as a prospect. Tinordi and Nygren are ready to play, huge LHD and an offensive RHD.

Why would the jackets do this? Jenner and Rychel fit their system perfectly and are likely going core pieces to that team for many years to come.

MTL: T. Plekanec, L. Eller, J. Tinordi

for

PHI: V. Lecavalier, S. Couturier, S. Morin

And MTL should try to sign K. Hayes from the Hawks at mid august and give him the 3rd RW spot left by Gionta.

Pacioretty-Desharnais-Parenteau
Galchenyuk-Lecavalier-Gallagher
Sekac-Couturier-Hayes
Prust-Malhotra-Weise

extra: Bournival-Bourque

DahL82


Plekanec>lecavalier
eller=couturier ( 3rd line C )
Tinordi> Morin

Just Bad.

Cd1


Couturier has more value than Eller

Nucker11


Couturier may have more value than Eller, but Plekanec and Tinordi have way more value than Lecavalier and Morin, and there's no point in the Habs doing this at all.

habsfan22


Plekenac may be the best player in this trade at the moment but Coturier has far and away the most upside of anybody in this trade followed by Morin. Flyers pass
