23 Jun 2017 21:46:20
Dream on bud the first trade is horrible basically ahl players and a low pick in the worst draft for a young 30 goals center😂😂😂😂.

23 Jun 2017 21:51:53
Troy Brouwer and ahl players for hamonic😂😂😂😂 Troy Brouwer has 3 years left at 4.5 mill and he had like 15 points last year a team won't take his contract for even a low 1st round.

23 Jun 2017 21:46:42
Actually all the trades are horrible.

23 Jun 2017 18:20:40
Apparently Devils really want galchenyuk and there is a MTL source that said that Galchenyuk is in play for the 1st Overall pick and that there will be a trade something in the like of.....

Montreal trade: Galchenyuk,2017 1st(#26),2017 2nd, De la rose

Devils trade 1st overall

23 Jun 2017 19:08:56
Sounds like a lot for MTL but would help with their cap problem and signing price.

23 Jun 2017 19:12:30
As much as i think that would help and be nice, Habs won't get the 1st overall.

23 Jun 2017 21:35:39
That's a firm no from NJ it would take a huge over payment like- Top Prospect/ Young top 6 Forward, U23 top 4 Dman and 1st

Example- Kyle Connor, Jacob Trouba, Connor Hellybuck and 24th ovr

NJ- 1st overall

This is what it would take and it's not worth it 1st overall picks don't get traded.

23 Jun 2017 17:40:25
CLB: Ryan Murray, 2nd round pick

MON: Galchenyuk

23 Jun 2017 17:49:48
Big No from MTL.

23 Jun 2017 16:43:48
At the draft:

Mtl sends Chucky and a 1st to Chi

Chicago sends Anisimov and Hjalmarrson.

23 Jun 2017 17:13:06
No from MTL we don't want old players with bad contracts.

23 Jun 2017 20:48:59
Hjalmarsson got traded.

23 Jun 2017 09:34:03
Trade #1
• H.Fleury
• T.Teravainen
• 12th Overall
• A.Galchenyuk

Trade #2
• N.Hanifin
• R.McKeown
• 3rd round pick
• M.Duchene

Trade #3
• 2nd round pick
St Louis:
• N.Yakupov

Trade #4
• J.Staal
• A.Saarela
• S.Bennett
• T.Brouwer

Sign Oduya, Shattenkirk

Aho - Duchene - Lindholm
Skinner - Galchenyuk - Yakupov
Nordstrom - Bennett - Stempniak
McClement - Ryan - Brouwer

Slavin - Faulk
Oduya - Shattenkirk
Van Riemsdyk - Pesce

23 Jun 2017 12:48:30
No way from Carolina
Yakupov barely got a third last time - not worth a second
Contract based Calgary says yes, but I don't know enough about Saarela.

23 Jun 2017 12:51:41
First trade is absolutely terrible, second one is even worse, alone hanifin is an overpayment for duchene and you even add another d-prospect and a third? `
Third one would work an the last one I don't know if calgary would part ways with bennett for Staal.

23 Jun 2017 13:29:34
Hannifin isn't going anywhere and if he was, one for one for another similar age superstar in the making of a different need ( D for F)

23 Jun 2017 16:09:36
Lol you just disassembled their whole team what.

23 Jun 2017 06:00:55
Apparently new jersey is a front runner for galchenyuk so heres what i think makes sense

Mtl galchenyuk lindgren, 25th ovr pick

Njd: henrique, 1st ovr pick, j. moore.

23 Jun 2017 06:58:36
No way. Galchenyuk and 25th probably won't get you #1. Don't know much about lindgren, but I can guarantee John Moore and Henrique aren't going the other way for him. Devils laugh. If Devils want a good forward who may never reach his potential of being a #1 centre, they can just pick Nolan Patrick and hope he's better. Not to mention have him for dirt cheap salary wise. Not pay galchenyuk an insane amount above what he's worth because after trading the top pick for an RFA, he holds all the leverage. This is habs dreaming. If Devils were willing to part with those three pieces in one deal, 20 teams would blow this offer out of the water.

23 Jun 2017 06:59:02
That's way too much from Devils even coming from habs fan. Easy no from Devils.

23 Jun 2017 04:53:26
OTT: Brassard
MTL: Galchenyuk

23 Jun 2017 04:59:14
I wouldn't do this trade because I think that Chucky's value is higher than brassard's, but I feel that Bergevin would accept that trade.

23 Jun 2017 05:21:54
😂😂😂😂😂funny hell no from mtl.

23 Jun 2017 05:23:05
Bergevin wants multiple peices for Galchenyuk.

23 Jun 2017 05:24:03

23 Jun 2017 05:31:38
What would Sens be adding, cause that isn't enough. And with Radulov probably pricing himself outta Montreal, they might wanna hang onto Galchenyuk. jus let him and Drouin try to have some chemistry. 2 young players with a ton of skill. could be a great 1 2 punch.

23 Jun 2017 07:30:13
Bergevin will be fired on the spot if he takes this deal.

24 Jun 2017 12:35:53
I'm not a Habs fan and I am sure the Habs wouldn't do this trade.

23 Jun 2017 01:28:26
💭 So Colomus blue jackets have an amazing offence and defence but they need to free some cap space and I feel like they would trade Ryan Murray and wouldn't really want any players in return because they have a lot of prospects and also they need to sign a few players so....

Montreal trades: 2017 1st, Zack fucale

CBJ trade: Ryan murray

CBJ get a good prospect goalie which they don't have and also a 2017 1st that they lost in the expansion and Montreal get a Top 4 D which doesn't take much room.

23 Jun 2017 05:10:46
So you say Columbus is stacked. Which means they don't really need to clear cap because they don't need to bring anything in. Then propose a cap dumping deal that doesn't actually dump any cap?

23 Jun 2017 05:33:00
That would he great for Habs, don't think Columbus wanta Fucale. I don't think he's going to be an NHLer, probably will play in Europe soon IMO.

23 Jun 2017 07:00:27
Would even add a 2nd or 3rd if the t say no to that.

23 Jun 2017 07:02:50
@JBs32 they have a lot of good defenceman and Murray is wasted as a 3rd pairing defenceman and also 3 mill is a lot to pay for a 3rd pairing D they could use that money to sign their RFA's.

23 Jun 2017 13:46:37
And another dreamland for Alikhan.

23 Jun 2017 00:41:13
Based on a Bob McKenzie Tweet
"More likely than not EDM Trades Ederle and MIN trades a D-Man"

NYI - Jordan Ederle, Greg Chase, 22nd and 84th Overall
EDM - Travis Hamonic, Anthony Beauviller, 46th and 77th Overall

MTL - Marco Scandella (15% Retained)
MIN - Zachary Fucale


NYI - New York recently traded their first off to ensure that Vegas takes Grabovski, so if Oilers put that first in their basically moving down to keep Grabovski. Also Eberle/ Duchene talks have been heating up with Snow so we know Snow is interested. And as for Chase, he's basically a place holder for Beauviller in the AHL. He has promise putting up point for game numbers playing first line with McDavid on pre season. Also has potential to be the next Frederick Gaudreau if you will (unexpected breakout star)

EDM - Edmonton finally gets Hamonic who've they have been in trade discussions to get him since last season. Plus Beauviller who Edmonton has as well expressed interest in, which in turn in prospect wise takes over the 1st round pick's value. And now Edmonton has 2 2nd's and has 2 3rd's which they moved up with one of them. They can either acquire a lower first or keep those picks. And Edmonton isn't in dire need of 1st round prospects for that matter

MIN - Trading Scandella was basically set in stone. With Brodin being the only possible option, Spurgeon being a no and Dumba too early in career. And to get someone like Fucale may be a risk but it can be worth it. Fucale who has been starting in the ECHL needs a fresh start, and to take a former second round draft pick off Montreal hands when his value is at an all time low is ideal for Minnesota. With a fresh start with Iowa Wild next season, he can be backing up Dubynk or even challenging for the starter role within the next year or so.

MTL - Montreal just Lot 2 defence off their top 6 plus a possible top 6 for next season in Sergachev, so they are in need for another defenceman. And it seems Bergevin has been busy on the phone so if they acquire Scandella (with cap retained) he can easily slot in where Beaulieu or Emelin was. And for trading Fucale, there is Charlie Lindgren that at the moment has more value, but for Montreal to trade off an ECHL starter shouldn't be a harm for them.

23 Jun 2017 01:05:24
Lol that Minnesota trade is brutal that's a huge yes from Montreal but never going to happen.

23 Jun 2017 01:24:50
I feel you put in way too much effort in this and the trade already happened lol that sucks.

23 Jun 2017 01:52:17
Well, clearly not. At least on the EDM/ NYI one.

23 Jun 2017 20:41:10
This is probably the dumbest thing I've ever seen posted on this site. Eberle was already traded and that's a huge overpayments and ohh my is that ever a brutal deal for Minnesota wow just wow Fucal is barely good enough to play in the AHL.

22 Jun 2017 18:49:07

Vegas trades:David Schlemko

Montreal trades: 2019 5th

Amazing trade for Montreal

22 Jun 2017 19:48:01
Yup great pick up.

22 Jun 2017 21:40:56
Amazing trade? Nah. Trade with good upside for Montreal? Sure. I think it's decent but nothing to write home about. Relax bud lol.

22 Jun 2017 18:47:58
To Vegas: 5th round pick in 2019
To Montreal: David Schlemko

Montreal lost: Subban, Bealieau, Sergachev and Emelin and gain Weber and Schlemko.
Still not sold on the Canadiens' defence.

22 Jun 2017 18:51:08
Schlemko is an uograde on Emelin though.

Man i hate emelin so much. Good to see his rat *** gone to LV.

22 Jun 2017 19:34:49
Emelin sucks wouldn't say he's a loss.

22 Jun 2017 18:19:20
This is a rumour that I saw on a TSN and not a trade that I suggested.

Montreal trades: Glachenyuk, 2017 1st

Minnesota trades: Jonas Brodin , Joel Erikseen Ek

22 Jun 2017 18:42:04
I would make it simple - Galchenyuk for Scandella. Maybe small plus from the Wild.

22 Jun 2017 18:44:48
That's definitely interesting but idk can't see minny doing that.

22 Jun 2017 18:50:51
Galchenyuk for Scandella 😂😂😂😂😂 is that a joke Scandella is 27 and not even a top pairing D and will only get worst Galchenyuk is 23 and will only get better.

22 Jun 2017 18:55:36
Maybe a small plus😂 Kovinator how are you so clueless.

22 Jun 2017 19:39:31
Alikhan you are incredibly overrating chuck he is a good middle six winger. I like the 1st deal tho.

22 Jun 2017 19:51:01
@ Nylander You're right I kind of am not going to lie but he's worth wayyyy more than Scandella to be completely honest.

22 Jun 2017 19:59:21
From what I read, Minny isn't sold on Galchenyuk and they are very high on Brodin. Much more likely Scandella or Dumba go than Brodin.

22 Jun 2017 02:55:17
Montreal: galchenyuk

Nashville: fabbro, 2nd rounder

Could this happen?

22 Jun 2017 04:49:48
nope add like 2 first.

22 Jun 2017 07:53:35
I didn't mean it literally.

21 Jun 2017 20:14:00
I don't post trades very often so I thought it would be fun to come up with a scenario I find interesting and unlikely. ( I came up with this before Tuch was traded to Vegas) .

MTL: Galchenyuk, Pick #25, #50, #52

LV: Dumba, Pick #6

Followed up by.

MTL: Dumba, Pick #6

DAL: Pick #3

Montreal drafts Miro Heiskanen.

I know these trades aren't great or possible but hey I thought the idea was worth sharing.

21 Jun 2017 22:43:21
Big overpayment & underpayment. No from minny on both

21 Jun 2017 22:50:30
LV is taking Haula from Minny.

21 Jun 2017 23:21:22
Horrible so basically we trade Galchenyuk, 1st, 2nd, 3rd for #3 pick 😂😂😂😂.

22 Jun 2017 14:19:26
This is so bad all around. Made my head hurt a little. Lol.

22 Jun 2017 16:59:29
So Chucky, a 1st and two 2nds for 3rd overall? I'd be disappointed with thay.

22 Jun 2017 20:47:48
So you gave up Chucky, #25,50,and 52 for Heiskanen. Seems like a lot for the 3rd pick. Might ask for something else from Dallas.

21 Jun 2017 06:44:06
Montreal Canadiens Plans 2017/ 18

1st Round Pick + Prospect to Vegas to take Plekanec.

Galchenyuk to NYI for Hamonic.

McCarron + Davidson to ARI for Richardson.

Martinsen to STL for Yakupov

Sign Marchessault. (4mil x 4yrs)
Sign Hanzal. (4mil x 2yrs)

Pacioretty - Marchessault - Drouin
Lekhonen - Hanzal - Gallagher
Yakupov - Richardson - Shaw
Byron - Danault - Mitchell

Emelin - Weber
Markov - Hamonic
Benn - Petry

21 Jun 2017 07:18:30
You're horrible.

Hamonic > Galchenyuk
McCarron + Davidson> Richardson
Yakupov > Martinsen.

Lol. Marchessault as a first line center is hilarious
Emelin playing top 2 is even funnier.

21 Jun 2017 12:53:25
Isnt Marchessault still under contract?

21 Jun 2017 15:02:31
Yes marchesesult has another year left #1. he's coming off a 30 goal year and exposed to Vegas. If Habs want him, they will have to trade Vegas for him. But do you think it's smart to trade for a 26 year old guy, and extend him 4 years, with one good year and his value at an all time high? Kinda seems like setting yourself up for dissapointment. 5'9 170 pound waiver wire a year ago isn't the solution to montreals #1 centre problems lol.

21 Jun 2017 15:22:39
I don't get why people undervalue Galchenyuk so much lol last year he was so overrated on this site

21 Jun 2017 17:06:45
Galchenyuk>Hamonic chill whoever says Hamonic>Galchenyuk has a problem.

21 Jun 2017 17:06:57
But all the trades were a joke.

21 Jun 2017 19:47:39
1st round pick + a prospect, really. The Habs can't afford to trade more prospects.

21 Jun 2017 23:08:36
enough with these dumb montreal rumours nobody wants these montreal players.

21 Jun 2017 05:19:07
mtl buyout emelin

offer hudon and 2nd pick so vegas take plekanec

habs trade galchenyuk and a first to vegas for staal ouellet and marchessault

habs sign alzner 5year 30M
sign radulov 4 year 24M
sign markov 2 year 6 M



21 Jun 2017 05:27:46
No thanks.

21 Jun 2017 05:57:57

21 Jun 2017 02:16:15
Well this is my first time on the NHL rumours site

So Montreal made a trade for them to hopefully get Carey price to re-sign in the future.

To HABS: DROUIN + conditional 6th

To LIGHTNING: SERGACHEV + conditional 2nd

My problem with this is that the HABS did not fix their centre problems, in my opinion they could've have went for Matt Duchene because he's a centre that they need and considering that the Avs need D , SERGACHEV could've been in a deal for Duchene. It would've fix HABS centre problem and getting the Avs a grade A d prospect they need. I like DROUIN but I don't think his attitude fits the team


21 Jun 2017 02:38:58
Joe Salic was asking for like sergachev, 1st and beaulieu which is crazy tbh.

21 Jun 2017 02:51:23
Me too he's an amazing player but I'm pretty sure we aren't going to see some off ice issues.

21 Jun 2017 03:53:33
A little late durr.

21 Jun 2017 03:54:54
Duchene attitude is just as much a question mark as drouins.

21 Jun 2017 04:41:07
Drouins fine. Just a kid that got some bad advice. Players loved him. Fit in very well with the team and stellar once he stopped listening to his parents and came back. I don't think youll have any issues with him at all he's been all class since returning.

21 Jun 2017 15:21:26
Welcome to Armchair GM gong show.
I personally like the Drouin trade, over a trade for Duchene. I jus don't see Duchene as being all that great. I believe he is the most overrated on this site since last season when we were all talking about another Av, Tyson Barrie. and i'm not sold that Duchene is a center?

Sometimes he's a winger, sometimes a center, gets 41 points. anyway, He would however be an upgrade over what we have atm.
As for Drouins attitude, time will tell if that was jus a one time incident. I think in Montreal he could really flourish. he wanted to be the guy, well now he's going to get his chance.

There are a lot of expectations on this kid. not sure if totally fair, jus hope he can handle it . I seen one article that kinda compared him to Guy Lafleur. I had to laugh at that. us Habs fans are sometimes right out to lunch. lol

Hope ya enjoy the site. don't take to anything personal, and just have fun. Youll learn who is legit and who the trolls are really fast.

21 Jun 2017 01:57:44
MTL: Anisimov

CHI: 2nd 2017, 3rd 2017

Not sure of Anisimovs value but maybe they get him at a cheap cost since chicagos cap problems.

If Montreal can handle Hjalmarsson and Anisimovs contract and able to sign galchenyuk and radulov...

MTL: Hjalmarsson, Anisimov

CHI: 2nd 2017, 2nd 2018

Montreal does Chicago a favour and gets them out of the red.

21 Jun 2017 02:24:21
Dont think that will be in compliance with the cap. Unless we can somehow get rid of Plekanec contract . Even then would be a stretch
I also feel like Habs should hokd on to a few picks. cupboard is really bare, especially with Sergachev gone now . All the prospects are C to C+ prospects at best.

21 Jun 2017 02:44:49
first of all montreal would have to lose emilin and plekanec to absorb those deals which is going to cost them, secondly I wouldn't want anisimov beacuse the main problem for Montreal last year was their faceoff % and anisimov is averaging 45% and that's the main reason they wanna trade him, third of all they are both pretty old and would much rather see Radulov stay and if anisimov comes in they won't be able to sign Radulov.

21 Jun 2017 15:18:33
2nd one is brutal Montreal adds A lot.

20 Jun 2017 19:52:51
This is a stretch and a bit ridiculous, however. Montreal is in win now mode but has very few prospects in the cupboard. So this all happens after the expansion draft.

Mtl - Carey price, 2017 first round pick

Vegas - MAF, 2017 first (6th) and the next two lowest first rounders that they have from the side deals, Matt dumba

Helps habs recoup. Get a top pairing defense and yes a goalie down grade but still a legit keeper.

20 Jun 2017 19:59:32
MAF isn't worth a lot and if Montreal trades price they wouldn't want low draft picks they would want an elite 1st line center a high first and a future top 2 D prospect, Fleury, 2nd, 2nd.

20 Jun 2017 20:00:23
Also we don't need RHD.

20 Jun 2017 20:00:35
Why do knights do it?

20 Jun 2017 20:23:10
Ya if I'm Vegas honestly wouldn't do that.

20 Jun 2017 20:47:44
That's a lot for 1 year of Price from a team that's no where close to competing.

20 Jun 2017 21:44:13
Vegas needs the best goalie in the league over 3 first round picks?

20 Jun 2017 22:30:43
The thought of Price in a differnt uniform gives me panic attacks lol. Nope. not going to happen.

20 Jun 2017 22:36:06
Just so bad.

I get Minny will have a deal in place for Vegas to lay off Dumba or Scandella.
But this deal is just so bad.

20 Jun 2017 18:35:13
With Montreal Trading Sergachev for Drouin and trading Beaulieu as well (both being LHD) I wonder if the Blues would Part with Jake Walman Something like

MON- Galchenyuk + 2nd 2018

STL -Walman + 1st 27OA.

20 Jun 2017 18:52:42
I don't know anything about Walman.
Im going to say No, jus to the fact that this team is trying to win now and needs someone to step in immediately to help make this team a contender. i'm not even sure they make the playoffs at this point.

20 Jun 2017 19:01:49
However, there is a certain young Blues Dman we could negotiate a trade with involving Galchenyuk. maybe this will bring Tankie out of hiding. Lol.

20 Jun 2017 19:45:09
Montreal want more of an NHL ready defenceman and also galchenyuk is worth way more than a medium prospect and a really late 1st round on an horrible draft year.

20 Jun 2017 19:55:42
St. Louis trades: Vince dunn, tage Thompson, 1st

Montreal trades: galchenyuk, 2nd.

20 Jun 2017 20:44:34

Im sure STL will decline that counter proposal.

20 Jun 2017 20:52:47
Yeah you're right but Montreal will decline the first one.

20 Jun 2017 21:42:28
So who do you all think is on Montreal's radar. NHL ready, Top4 and available? Shattenkirk, ALZNER, ect.

20 Jun 2017 23:21:56
Im reading about Scandella. not sure what the price would be.
I hope not Shattenkirk. he's meh, not all that high on him. and will cost way to much.

21 Jun 2017 00:35:41
Scandella would be a good addition if Vegas picks him and we trade them like a 1st, 2nd for him and also make them pick Plekanec or something.

21 Jun 2017 02:12:52
Walman is young promising blue liner, real bright future for him. SHOuld be NHL ready, with all said he doesn't get Chucky yet. No from Habs.
