If Corey Crawford is their way of showing JT they’re serious about building a team, then they deserve what happens to them.

This is a ridiculous rumor. Where would he play? They have 3 left wingers already.

Here's your Montreal update!

No worries Ek, I got this...

5 moves the Habs will make this off season

5. Trade Byron, Mccarron and the 56th pick to Chicago for the 27th pick and draft Akil Thomas, Ty Dellandrea or Ryan McLeod

4. Sign Calvin de Haan

3. Trade Jordie Benn and David Schlemko to any team looking for bottom pairing D on low cap hits and short term, maybe grab a couple late picks in the process

2. Draft Filip Zadina 3rd overall

1. Sign John Tavares

Let's play devil's advocate for moment... The only way this is truly a win with picking up Crawford would be if CHI was dumb enough to take Ladd back.

Regardless, the Islanders were still one of the highest scoring teams in the league; they don't need more. They need a goalie upgrade and to tweak their defense. Crawford is not the goalie he was and this would be a limp-in.

Quotes aren’t working, so Rinosaur, that ^ is probably one of the most uninformed posts I’ve seen on HB.

The team’s collapse this season is exactly synonymous with the fact that Crawford missed most of it.

As soon as he went down, the team sank faster than the Titanic. He was playing as good as he ever has this season prior to injury, and he’s one of the few goalies in the NHL that actually performs and can be called upon in the post-season.

He’s absolutely an elite goalie, and his value to the organization and team-friendly contract only reinforces how important he is to the Hawks.

Unless there is something with Corey Crawford's Injury we don't know . Chicago would be crazy to trade him. He has being there MVP for a few years now. And look at the nose dive they took when he got injured this year.

With a healthy Crawford we would have made the playoffs this year, but most certainly another first round exit at best. I'm not sure they make any big moves this summer (with the core) since it looks like "the whole team had an off year." If it was another first round exit from the playoffs it may have been a different story.

Crawford is so underrated outside of Chicago

JVR makes zero sense, they need centers and dmen. Anders Lee is a younger version of JVR

I think Goaltending should be the #1 priority then tweaks to the defense . You really don't need any centers unless JT decides to leave.

Goaltending, defense, and coaching fixes are needed. JVR is a nice player but is not needed on the Isles. I like Crawford as a goalie, but the Isles need a younger goalie.

Carolina will go Zadina to pair with Necas from last years 1st.
Habs will go with Brady bc they are too scared to draft another highly skilled OHL Russian player who missed time with an injury.
Sens will (frank) it up by taking a dman like Boqvist or Bouchard

Then a talent like Svechnikov will be wasted on the Yotes

they should, but that combo of Zadina and Necas who destroyed the WJC together, that might be too tempting to pass up
