I hope it's not Chucky. He's been so much valuable lately. Hottest player in the league right now.
I'm thinking it's Tomas Plekanec. I think Habs could get something of decent value in return for him. As for Markov, I think that with his age, I'm not sure a team would be willing to give the Habs an important player in return. Unless Markov is part of a package deal?
I'm obviously not thinking of galchenyuk, just throwing names. I still think the 2 pieces that need to be moved is Desharnais and Emelin, a combined 7.6M in cap space relief and plus gilbert being a free agent and all makes us over 10M in cap space. More could be added imo
It's Emelin. No move clause turns into limited. DD too. There was talk of him going at deadline... I think the writing is on the wall. Galchenyuk 1 C. McCarron 3 C. I see Plekanec or a new player will be 2 C. DD gone.
Too bad for the Habs. Probably could have used a 20 goal scorer this year!
This is like a Leafs fan thread, "lets trade this over-priced piece of trash for a good piece going forward."
Galchenyuk isn't going anywhere. And almost everyone else is over priced. Might be able to get something for Subban, but $9m/year is tough to swallow for an ultra talented but still very flawed player.
Probably have to eat salary on everyone else. And I think those "free" buyouts had an expiration date that has long since passed. Would have to use a regular buyout now, I believe.
But let's be honest, this team is going to compete for a playoff spot next year because they have the best goalie in the world. It's quite evident based on what happens when he's in the net and when he's not in the net. He should win MVP this year just as Peyton Manning should have won it the year he was out all year. You never know how valuable a guy is until he's gone. Stats alone don't bare that out.
