Latest Montreal Canadiens Trade Rumors
01 Sep 2014 17:04:30
WSH: Weiss, 2nd
CGY: Backlund, Brodie, 1st
EDM: Eller, Fucale, Scherbak, 1st
No way mtl gives all that for yakupov and cbj would want more for johansen
The top 2 r decent offers, the bottom one I awful
01 Sep 2014 17:59:45
1. seems good, maybe rather a 3rd, but it's fine
2. Good start, considering the CAL pick is most likely a top 8 pick, maybe add another low pick/prospect
3. I think it's a bit too much for Yakupov.
01 Sep 2014 15:37:26
instead of always writing about tradin our best and most valuable centre why don't we just trade desharnais (less value) but then give PLekanec good wingers and hell have 60 plus points not to mention actually score 20 goals every year.
Desharnais - Monrteal
Stewart _ Bufallo
Desharnais + REway - montreal
Semin - carolina
As a Habs fan, I WISH!! But teams want Plekanec because of his versatility and Desharnais relies on his wingers to do everything.
31 Aug 2014 23:53:02
Montreal will ruin tokarski if they play him in the AHL again and no one wants budaj so this is the solution, also he won't be part of a kane trade because montreal has barely any cap and they will need to give up galchenyuk, which bergevin will NOT do! he's our future centre!
01 Sep 2014 04:24:37
i don't see how another year in the AHL would "ruin" tokarski.
Value seems fair IMO but I have a hard time seeing wpg moving high picks at the moment.
No one in Montreal wants to keep Budaj, but every other team would prefer you to keep him. Easier competition.
Tokarski lands a 2nd no one bats an eye Reimer lands a 2nd everybody looses their mind
Reimer is worth a late 2nd.
It's when leafs fans start up with the "late 1st" talk that people (rightfully) bat an eye/"loooose their mind"
1 When did a leaf fan start up with the late first talk.this is propaganda chirp
2 Reimer career stats 26 years
140games 914save% 11 shutouts
Corey Crawford career stats 29 years
211games 914save% 10 shutouts
Dustin tokarski career stats 24 years
10 games 902save% 1 shutout
3 good post, both teams get something they want.i think it's a third round pick from Winnipeg.
31 Aug 2014 16:19:41
Montreal trades Plekanec and 2015 2nd to Washington for Karl Alzner
WSH gets center depth after Grabo left, Pleks plays 200 foot game which Trotz will love and MTL gets a left handed Top 4 DFD to play with a puck moving Gilbert.
Caps already have center depth, especially with Kuznetsov entering his first full season. Alzner leaving would create a huge gap in their defense that can't be filled by a prospect. This would be a very bad deal for Washington.
I think the caps want to compete and could use a proven center too play in their top 9 but that's not enough for Washington to move Alzner IMO
31 Aug 2014 15:18:45
Montreal:daniel and henrik sedin and zach kassian
Vancouver:plekanec,sekac and gallagher
It is fair for both teams?
31 Aug 2014 18:54:35
Regardless of whether its fair, there is something called the salary cap.
MON is ~ 2.5 under the cap, but this trade gives them ~9m additional cap hit, so they'd be more than 6 mil over the cap.
It helps when you think about what you post before you post it
No from Van. Gallagher is the only player out of those 3 that Vancouver would need.
Habs don't need that cap trouble
Habs don't have the cap space and they have a no trade clause.
Not only is the value miles off but it makes no sense why this was even a proposition.
01 Sep 2014 00:24:48
not even close really
henrik > plecky
daniel >>>>> sekac
gallagher > kassian but its nowhere near enough to makeup the difference
Rather keep Plekanec and Sekac and Gallagher because the only player that interests me is Kassian and he's not going to be near as good as Sekac and Gallagher. Sedins are too old and have a bad cap hit.
31 Aug 2014 01:19:19
WIN: Plekanec, Hudon, Reway, 4th
31 Aug 2014 06:39:57
@HockeyGodsGift: That's what I meant.
Kunitz > Plekanec
Bennett > Reway
2015 1st >>> Hudon, 4th
No way this is enough.
Plek and a 2nd maybe
30 Aug 2014 19:03:16
Mtl: bournvial, moen, trunev
Col: talbot, mitchell, 3rd
30 Aug 2014 17:55:11
tomas plekanec, micheal bournival, Zach fucale to pitts for pascal dupuis, Brandon sutter and Tristan jarry
helps solve Pittsburgh cap trouble and Crosby doesn't have to play against plekanec anymore which he hates.habs are deep at center and can improve their right wing position yes sutter can also play right wing.
Pittsburgh wins that's big time, habs say no
What about adding a first from Pittsburgh and a 2nd from montreal
dupuis,sutter,jarry 1st 2015 to montreal for plekanec,bournival,fucale 2nd 2015
30 Aug 2014 16:36:17
Ha no from BUF
Lol I don't like the odds of this trade happening
Why would you want Gorges back if you just traded him? Also we get rid of Emelin our defense are a bunch of guys that don't hit except for Subban. Also Emelin can score occasionaly wheras Gorges never does. The only reason your probably saying this is because u want Gorges to be captain.
31 Aug 2014 00:46:49
you do realize MTL just traded goges to BUF, right?
30 Aug 2014 16:18:43
Sj T mcginn, 3rd
30 Aug 2014 15:52:30
Read an article on this. Found it very intriguing. What if the Boston Bruins decided to trade Zdeno Chara? He's aging, but wouldn't get a bigger return for him then right now. They are trying to clear some cap space, which would be accomplished with this deal. Plus they could easily upgrade their top-six forwards with trading him. Now IMO I don't think Boston will trade him as long as they are a cup contender. BUT if the right deal came along, I think they would consider.
That deal would probably look like.
Top-six right winger, top 4 defender, 1st round pick. (Depending on value, could add a decent prospect or other pick)
So which teams would be interested?
Not as many as you'd think but, I believe Los Angeles, New York Rangers, Montreal, Tampa Bay, and Detroit would be most interested.
Keep in mind, the Bruins might want to get younger, clear cap space, and possibly deal a defender that is slowing down.
The potential trades:
BOS: Zucarello, Girardi, 1st 2017
BOS: Palat, Carle, 1st 2015, 2nd 2016
I'm having a hard time placing value. Ignore the fact that you don't think Chara will get traded, just give your 2 cents on what they would get in return? Thanks for reading
I agree boston should trade him he is totally slowing down.but if they did, which they won't cause they are not smart enough. they would trade him to a western team.
Tough one. I just can't see them moving him.chara for yakupov lol
30 Aug 2014 17:24:46
Boy, I don't know where to start in saying how bad that is for every team not named Boston.
First of all, why the hell would LA be interested? They (and maybe STL) have the best D corps in the NHL.
Second, Chara is already declining, he's 37 and has one, MAYBE two good seasons left. Sure, he's still a very good dmen, but he isn't worth all that.
NYR: Girardi isn't much worse, but way younger and has a way better contract, which makes his trade value AT LEAST even to Chara's, rather higher. Still add Zuccarallo and a 1st? No thanks.
TB: WHY? TB has just added Stralman and Garrison to their D, their fine with it now, no need.
Besides that, value is so far off.
Carle may be a bit overpayed, but he's a solid top 4 guy. Palat was a calder finalist and is IMO untouchable for TB, I'm pretty sure he is a future Selke nominee, if not winner. Plus a 1st in the McDavid draft and another 2nd? that's insane.
I'm pretty sure most people disagree on what I'll say now, but i'm pretty sure Yzerman wouldn't trade Palat straight up for Chara.
Think 10-15 more years of a promising young forward, with great two way play VS 1 or MAX 2 years of an already declining Dmen, that TB doesn't really need.
30 Aug 2014 17:27:43
To answer your question:
Tbh I think Chara could fetch a good-paid top 4 dmen (for the cap, if other team is close to cap, too) and a prospect/mid pick.
Or a very good D prospect like (not saying PIT needs him or whatever, just an example) Maatta and a 5th or so
Wow draisaitl you're becoming more of a douche. How bout you give you're opinion on charas value rather than telling everyone their wrong.thats easy and of no use. So tell us what's fair value for chara oh wise one
30 Aug 2014 19:25:12
those packages you're putting together would be for a 30 year old chara, not a 37 year old one. he's worth nowhere near that and last year really showed some signs of declining.
Idk about all that. Tampa got 2 firsts along with Callahan for (then) 37 year old St. Louis. Not saying it's believable, but something similar happened only half a year ago.
Boston needs to just give him lless minutes.
I agree, why would a team trade away youth and picks for 1 or 2 years from an aging, albeit good dman? I don't see it happening. His career will almost certainly end in boston
Chara has a lot of value and he's still a very effective player. Every team that wants to compete this year would be interested to some degree in trading for big z. Correct me if I'm wrong but he would still be better than 4 too 7 dmen on any team. He finally slowed down a touch, but he is still a beast.
Coyotes get chara
Bruins get connor Murphy,Lucas lessio,4th rd pick if big z wanted to play there
Chara isn't worth much at all now. He looks slow.
31 Aug 2014 06:43:42
@drgonzo: As you see, I did just that.
How about YOU giving an assessment here or elsewhere instead of only always saying that I am a douche or whatever?
I'm at least talking hockey. You're talking me, lol.
31 Aug 2014 06:48:15
Shankar ist exactly right, that's for a 30yr old Chara.
The St.Louis comparison is a bit wrong IMO, Marty did show no signs at all of slowing down, he scored 4 goals vs SJ, won the Art Ross a year ago and averaged like 1.1 PPG the last 5 years.
Plus, the Rangers knew that Callahan would prolly leave either way in FA since they couldn't agree on a new contract.
Also, Callahan is not old at 29, but oldER than Palat at 23, who hasn't reached his full potential yet, so that's a difference, too.
Plus Rangers were/are in a desperate win-now-mode, which TB isnt. At least not desperate, since we got SY.
Everyone here is wrong chara is worth nowhere near these deals but if they find the right team and add in other players like kelly plus prospects and maybe 1st or 2nd pick they could get a top 4 d man plus top six right winger to a team that's going for the cup this year
I gave my opinion on the post.i then gave my opinion on you being a douche after reading you're comment.clearly I'm not the only one who has a problem with you based on the amount of clicks as we'll as hockeygodsgift and mrenlightened and others both telling you to shut up and post an idea if you're so smart rather than just dumping on peoples ideas.
01 Sep 2014 18:07:22
Lol, you three have a problem with me because you don't like that I keep telling people they overvalue their players (especially TOR and MON), but it's just the truth.
And 90% of the time, I get more agree's than disagrees, which is pretty good, considering this site is super TOR and MON heavy, lol.
29 Aug 2014 14:25:52
Montreal: Tomas Plekanec
Minnesota: Charlie Coyle
What do you think about the values?
Minnesota would probably block Montreals number
29 Aug 2014 21:24:27
MON adds, clearly
28 Aug 2014 23:06:24
The montreal canadiens have reportedly offered matt kassian a one year-two way deal, other teams also have shown interest.
Honest question. how many people think that if gallant had'nt 1 punch ko'ed him last year he would already be signed?
Why would he sign with a team he hates?
Nova x 65
Well hab. Gallant is a freaking beast so I don't blame kassian
@nova65 if you have to ask.
Why would he sign with a team he hates. are you really that dumb? let's just say he does hate montreal which I doubt he does.he would sign there for the same reason 99% of players sign with a team.MONEY!!
27 Aug 2014 22:35:29
Habs: Joffrey lupul,Cody franson,Peter holland
Leafs: Tomas plekanec,alexei emelin
Jvr bozak kessel
Booth kadri clarkson
Komarov plekanec frattin
Bodie santorelli winnik
Ex. Ashton kontiola
Cap works, I know booth sucks
Good post, value looks about right and tis might help both teams
28 Aug 2014 18:04:28
Ah. As mtl and leaf fans would both agree: I hate those players tho
No from Leafs
Nothing from habs please
Realistically trades between Leafs and Habs won't happen.
^ then explain MTL and TOR trying to work out a deal for Gorges
Josh gorges nixed a deal between Montreal and toronto this year.where did the leafs get grabovski from again
27 Aug 2014 17:27:30
This is to prove that Montreal canadiens players are not overvalued by everyone.
MTL: Bourque, 5th
LA: Doughty, 6th
Inconsistent winger with one good playoff run under his belt for a franchise defenseman. Maybe it works if they add a 6th.
MTL: Plekanec, 6th
COL: Mackinnon, 3rd
Solid 2C in plecky for a superstar sophomore player who could lead the nhl in points in a couple years.
MON: Budaj, 7th
Rather solid regular season backup goalie for a first overall pick.
With the value that some people on this site consider MTL players to be, I believe this could go through.
You didn't prove anything
27 Aug 2014 19:38:26
Finally! Someone with some hockey sense! I've been waiting a long time to see some trades that actually benefit both teams needs! Especially that Florida trade. Wonderful! Florida gets another back up goalie which they desperately need as well as a 7th round pick (sounds bad but some all stars have came late in the drafts so it's worth a shot). And they only had to give up the top prospect in the world this year. Honestly Florida stole that trade IMO.
None of you are being funny.
28 Aug 2014 04:39:47
Too much sarcasm for my liking. Next.
27 Aug 2014 06:33:04
CBJ: Bourque, Plekanec, Thrower, Nygren
MTL: rights to Johansen, Rychlel and 3
27 Aug 2014 12:39:07
Not even enough for johansen.
27 Aug 2014 16:57:46
yup, spare parts for a young star, top prospect and pick. seems about right.
If the habs want Johansen and Rychel they can start with Galchenyuk , Gallagher , Del la Rose , Fucale and a 1st 2015.
Take out johansen and the values about right
Johansen hasn't show any consistency to his game except for this year. Galchenyuk will probably be like Johansen this year.
If there is one habs fan with a clue please post something reasonable soon. This is embarrassing
27 Aug 2014 06:28:24
WIN: Please, Moen and Nygren
VAN: Bourque, 5
MTL: Higgins and Hansen
Terrible, you have overvalued Habs players.again.
Lol, are you saying please because you'd have to beg Winnipeg to say yes? They'd need to throw in much more. But either way, you should stop posting on this website.
Vancouver laughs at this trade proposal, Hansen and Higgins are both better players than bourque. Habs can keep your lazy pylon on your own team.
27 Aug 2014 02:23:11
SJ: P. Marleau, 4th rd 2015
MTL: T. Plekanec, R. Bourque, M. Nygren
Extra: Brown, Desjardins, Scott
Extra: Hannan, Nygren
It gives SJ a C that can take on any 1st line in the league and also a 60 points player. Bourque adds depth on the LW and maybe another or two great playoff performances. Nygren is said to be ready for NHL level.
MTL takes on a LW leader with still 70-75 points potentials seasons and gets the chance to put Galchenyuk at C with all the tools he needs to succed.
Not enough for Marleau
Pleks has a little value but bourque and nygren suck. Marleau had more points than any player on Montreal last season and he probably will again this season. Habs fans don't understand you have to give to get.
Anyone else noticing the trend of the exact same players being offeref in every hab proposal? Why not Beaulieu and a pick for Marleau?
27 Aug 2014 00:41:18
Apparently dustin penner may sign a tryout contract with the canadiens
They don't sign a tryout contract its a training camp invite that's it
Enjoy the 6' 1" 250lb oaf. Unless you have him playing with world class players he won't do anything.
Nova x 65
27 Aug 2014 17:37:01
Whatever its duster penner.
I think ryan Malone had more to offer than penner.
1.3 grams of blow is not that much.and he doesn't know where it came from,so Its not like he can get more.both Malone and penner suck.
Oilers will bring back Penner for 1 year 3.5 mil. Might as well with all the other ridiculous signings.
Penner would look good in a habs jersey. Lol
27 Aug 2014 00:38:45
To EDM: Plekanec
To Montreal: Nail Yakupov (3rd,4th if needed)
Edmonton gets their 2nd line center.
And Yakupov's position can be filled. Multiple of players in the AHL/depth can take Yakupov's 3rd line role. When Draisaitl gets ready. What will I do then you ask? Well, he is a center naturally. But we can try to teach him to play winger. OR, Plekanec to play wing.
Enough? Not Enough?
EDM: D. Perron
MTL: T. Plekanec
I would never trade away a first overall pick this early. Yakupov has the second most points in his draft year (to early to judge players) he's had an off season (sophomore slump) albeit a terrible plus minus but I wouldn't trade ovechkin away.
27 Aug 2014 08:05:12
More like 1st/2nd needed to be added by the Habs
To early to give up on Yakupov. Edmonton declines.
If Plekanec is religious,
does that make him a
I still can't see why people think Plekanec is so valuable. He won't be returning a first line player by himself, I guarantee it.
Plekanec is a solid #3 center. His value IMO is definitely closer to purcells then perrons.his name rings out so clueless people overvalue him.
26 Aug 2014 15:07:33
Winnipeg: E. Kane
Mon: Eller, Lehkonen, 1st
Wpg says blow me
Gallagher , Del la Rose and a 1st 2016. Then you might see Kane in a habs jersey.
I wouldn't trade a 1st round pick in that deal.
^ You'll never see Kane in a habs jersey.
26 Aug 2014 05:48:43
Moen to anybody for 6
Boyes is way better
Boyes is cheaper and is a more reliable offensive option. Makes no sense for FLorida.
Not enough for Boyes.
Only Lindy Ruff could take Brad Boyes and turn him into a non factor. Under Ruff, Boyes scored 13 goals in 86 games. I am so glad Ruff is gone. I cannot wait for Nolan to leave next. No way does Florida make that trade, Boyes is cheaper and better.
I think Montreal adds a 3rd
All habs fans put unbelievable trades on here cause they have all there players overrated
And all the people turning down the trades over value their own players.
25 Aug 2014 23:50:04
mtl: DD, moen
Phi: vinny(cap retain), rosehill, 3rd
Habs dump moens salary, get someone cheap to replace him
Get vinny with retainded cap and a pick
Vinny is no longer an nhl player. He should be a 1st line minor player.
You would need 50% retain to get mtl attention
25 Aug 2014 20:25:03
Going off a trade idea from below
Bourque and a 6th for Lecavalier 750, 000 retained and a 3rd
Only gets thought of as an idea if MTL can move Eller or DD beforehand, otherwise it makes logjam at center worse. (I get that)
25 Aug 2014 15:22:33
Evander Kane to Mtl for
Pâtéryn tokarski 1st Thomas and. A second
Bourque 1st 2nd andrighetto thrower for sharp
Pacioretty desharnais Sharp
Kane plekanec galchenyuk
Prust malhorta wiese
Extra: bournival sekac de la rose
Prob will never happen but it's good to dream
Those are actually realistic
The salary cap might disagree
Horrible for WPG
I still see both GM's saying no to the deals.
Less pieces more quality needs to come from MTL to Winnipeg they need immediate help, to Chicago who is in "cap trouble" they would like prospects and picks but for a aging winger it doesn't make sense from montreals standpoint!
26 Aug 2014 00:18:35
1. If Kane comes to Montreal he's playing off-wing on the first line.
2. The salary cap has a problem with this (._.)
3. Overpayment for both we're not giving up that many picks/prospects.
