Habs will give you Tomas Tatar + Anaheim's 4th this year + Chicago's 3rd in 2021 for Peeke + Carlsson & 1st this draft

No sale sir, the trade ends up being a 1st for Tatar, who is not worth a 1st round pick that we need, and you get players we developed for your marginal draft picks.
It has to be a lot more than that coming from the Habs for what you want.

Didn't see the game, did see the score. Great win, though you have to feel for Officer Bob losing again in his former precinct.

I tend to agree about your point, let the offers come to to the CBJ. Sadly, the big problem is that we need offense, and the top players possibly on the block are in the Metro, and I'm not real happy about sending young guys to a team we will see 4 times a year for the next 10 years in this blood feud of a division.

I also would not mind a rental, if he is the right rental and there is some kind of decent chance we can resign him.

Um . . . NO ! We're not giving up our 1st this draft. Plus, you're not getting two defensemen for what you're giving up.

I agree TT - Jarmo should be buying this year, but no rentals. I don't believe there's anyone on the current list of suspects that can really give us a charge.
Use the D surplus, plus some extra O men - Anderson, Milano, maybe even Wennberg, to get a top-6 forward with term; or maybe some picks in the top-3 rounds.

Tatar could easily land the Habs a 1st round pick + all by himself

So you want a 1st and 2 NHL ready defenseman for Tatar and a 2 middle picks? No way. That package could get you Nylander from Toronto.

Game had a playoff feel to it, both sides not being afraid to lay the weight around, that being said, injury and lack of a 2c behind Dubois is what's hurting this team right now...

TT had a blog about that last week and you posters from Calgary said " . . . no way . . ." we're trading Goudreau. Now he's available . . . ?? Considering your position in the standings, I'd be surprised if you trade him at the TDL. Maybe this summer.
I'd be open to discussing a trade - top-4 D (not Jones or Werenski), + Milano + prospect.

Lesser players will and have gotten more as rentals, delusional? You have your head shoved straight up your ass if you believe otherwise

And he was traded for a 1st, 2nd and 3rd 20 months ago and he's put up back to back career seasons since....

I don't think the unanimous opinion was no way we're trading JG as much as it was no way we're giving him away. He is having a down year but he is still an explosive offensive player with a cap friendly contract. If the Flames miss the playoffs there will be very few untouchables in CGY and there will be teams that will make strong offers for JG.

Unless the Jackets can attract some UFA's they will have to trade to inject some offence in that line-up. The Jackets will also have to pay up next year to sign Dubois, Anderson & 2 goalies so I don't see them throwing big money at top UFA'S.

There will be many teams interested in JG (2 x 6.75m) if he becomes available this summer.

How about Voracek coming back to Columbus. He’s got some years on the contract and puts up points

Enjoy the pick if you can get it. It won't be the CBJ's 1st round pick.

Quick question: If he has value for the CBJ why would Philly trade him to a team in their division? Maybe you are valuing him a little too high?
