Habs announce the trade, Max Domi for Alex Galchenyuk straight up.
lol, wow

Adam Gretz @AGretz

Galchenyuk is only a year older than Domi and 19-goals, 50 points is a disappointing year for him.

Max Domi had 18 goals...

... In 141 games over the past two years.

I don't know, man.
like, unless Galchenyuk has some Hoffman-esque baggage, wtf

Galchenyuk + Sergachev + Subban for Domi + Drouin + Weber doesn't really look so great.

Part of this deal will be an extension for Domi, to be worked out over the next few days

Serious question: Does anyone, anywhere whose last name isn't Bergevin or Molson think that Bergevin isn't the worst GM in the league? Canucks fans, Edmonton fans, take your Bennings and your Chirallis and shove them up your ass, they aren't even close. Not even ****ing close anymore. Jesus H jumped up Christ on a chariot driven sidecar what the ****ing ****. Someone post the "Stop he's already dead" scene from that Simpon's episode.

****ing Bergevin has absolutely ****ed the Habs for years, literally years.

I like this move by the Habs it makes them tougher! Who cares about goals and points and wins. Now trade Max Pac for Lucic haaha.

Regardless of how much of the nonsense we hear is true or not, it completely tanks Hoffman and Karlson's trade value. One or both has to be moved and everyone knows it. Ottawa should get Bergevin on the phone, he'd probably overpay for Hoffman and say to himself "I'll just turn him into a center!!!"
I mean, it's definitely tanked Hoffman's trade value but I don't really understand why people think it'll do the same to Karlsson's.

1) It doesn't really matter that teams know the Sens will be trading Karlsson. That's already pretty obvious since they were allegedly minutes away from trading him at the deadline. It's sort of been understood that Karlsson and Melnyk simply can't co-exist anymore and since Melnyk doesn't look to be going anywhere any time soon, Erik will be packing his bags.

2) He's still Erik ****ing Karlsson. I'd bet there will be at least a dozen--maybe more--teams interested in acquiring him. That's more than enough to build a market. The thought of trading him makes me borderline suicidal but we'll get a decent package for him.

3) Some people have said: Why would any team trade for him when they could just sign him in free-agency a year from now? Look, this is a guy who has already sustained two career-threatening injuries to his lower body. He's also already divorced ($$$). I don't think for one second he'd risk playing next season without a contract extension. I think if any halfway competitive/stable team acquires him and offers him like $10M AAV for 8 years, he snap signs. I'm convinced the Rangers will make a strong push for him.


also lol bergevin oh no baby what is you doin

IIRC un Lucic's 30 goal season he had like seven ENGs. Lol at 4/9 though. Lol Bergevin.

Agree that Karlsson's trade value shouldn't be hurt. It was obvious they were gonna trade him once he turned down extension offers. Maybe this killed the last 0.1% chance of him signing but that's it. And as long as there's a bidding war, it doesn't matter anyway.

(Unless GMs around the league now view Karlsson as soft because he let himself be harassed. Can't entirely rule that out in this league.)

I'm sure most of you have read both of these by now. Still pretty powerful. Hits way too close to home for me at times, but must read.

Friedman saying that Dorian dropped his ask on Hoffman before that story broke, hoping to dump him before the news came out. other GMs confirmed MAD. lol it never ends with them.

sure $3.15m is a lot, because max domi scored fewer goals per 60 minutes in all situations than zac rinaldo this year, but at least his 5v5 CF% was ......... worse?

All of this. I love the Habs, but this moron, and the morons that preceded him, have gutted this team like a fish.

Hard to even feel anger anymore at these kind of moves, just expect these [ or worse. ] Tsn Montreal should be lit next week.

GM´s staying on top of things before the main event

Quote:
“I anticipate making our picks. Certainly, we would move up if the right deal were there and we’d look at moving back if the right deal were there, too,” Hextall said during a conference call this week. “It’s really hard to project or predict. I don’t even know in my own mind what might come our way, but I know something will at some point.”

everyone saying that Zadina is gonna fall out of the t5, which is awesome, assuming that jackass Benning doesn't trade #7

also Quinn Hughes maybe dropping bc he skipped the combine after playing in the Worlds

one time!

Most of what I've heard is Zadina may drop slightly due to Koetkiniemi moving up and some teams looking for D. I would be shocked if he fell out of the top 5.

Hughes will be the second D drafted, and can't see how he gets past 6th at absolute worst. No one cares about him skipping the combine.
