I usually agree with Chickenfoot but this time I think it is a fair trade.
I believe that Hart is going to be a very good player.
He was rushed into the NHL before he was ready and could be a top goalie if the Habs bring him along slowly.

Ya think so ChickenFoot? If Hart is available, I'd be in on this. I was gonna suggest at the draft Florida's 1st, straight up for Hart.

I appreciate you both Island Jet and Sosa…plus, it’s way more interesting to share a different take then just agree like sheep?.

I respect both of your opinions and you may well be right. I definitely am not a fan of this trade, because I just don’t believe in Hart. But you may well be right.

For me, I look at the youth Montreal has. There is a really good group of kids 24 and younger, from the D to the Forwards, the one ingredient missing is a Goalie. Im not sold on Montembeault being this guy, and have given up on Primeau. I'm not sure about the other young guys in the system.
I know Hart was one of the most hyped up Goalies to come from the WHL since, well maybe Price. I haven't seen alot of him, I know he's had some really good moments as well as some really bad ones. I am hoping ( if he became a Canadien) that he can grow with the team and become the potential backbone in net that will be needed to one day compete for the Cup, if all goes well, say 5 years?
ChickenFoot, what are your concerns with Hart? Like I said, I haven't seen alot from him.

Well stated Sosa. I don’t like his game, consistency, and like you I feel like he’s overhyped. Would he have what it takes to survive playing in a Canadian market? I feel like we know who Hart is, so he’s not the prospect I’m looking for in net. That’s my two cents anyway. Good discussion fellas?.

I wonder about the Panthers and Spencer Knight.
Goalies like Knight are typically untouchable, but Fla have Bob for another 3 yrs @ 10m per after this season (not trading him without significant retention), and Knight just signed an extension, 3 yrs @ 4.5m/ yr.
14.5m is a lot for a goalie tandem, and they have another pretty good goalie prospect in Guzda. That and Knight has spent most of this season in the Player Assistance Program.
One wonders if Zito might feel like moving on from Knight, and using him as a trade chip to shore up their d, which hasn’t been the same without Weegar. They don’t have much else to trade, and would likely be in on Parayko, Edmundson, or someone else if they had something to offer.
Certainly, the hope is Knight recovers, and when/ if he does, a number of teams (Mtl, Tor, Edm, among others) would probably make offers, were he available.
Zito has been very aggressive the past few seasons, and to sit still this deadline must’ve been exceedingly painful for him.

People can overcome substance abuse, but they are especially risky targets when it comes to trades.

I wish the best for the young man, but I’d be looking elsewhere.

I didn't realize Knight was in the Program. I do hope the kid can overcome this.
Montreal would not be a good place for him to resurrect his career. To much media, to many outside distractions ( not that Miami doesn't have those as well) .
Also, with the youth on Montreal, this could also be a bad thing for Knight. I know when I was in my 20's, and had a little money ( which these guys always do) . Was fun getting the boys together and off to the club or whatever. ( I don't know this guy, so I dont know what he likes to do obviously)

Burner89, im deffenitley not against this, as Knight is one of the best young goalies in the game, however just think there are better places for him in regards to his issues than Montreal.

@Chickenfoot, Sosa
Points taken.

Montreal has incredible pressure so playing in that market the player will have to have their mental health in order. Those mentioned are fine goaltenders but they would be better to find a tandem that has at least one young guy. They should not go for recycling from the herd of guys that move around.

My suggestion is keep Allen as the vet or trade for Jarry or even Lindgren then find a second year or third year guy like Toronto has in Woll. Only don’t go after Woll because he will be in the NHL next year. I am a leaf fan. It is important to the League to have the Habs back in the playoffs.
