Duchene would be a good fit, but costs too much if Sakic stays

Don't see MTL accepting that. Here's what I think:

MTL Receives:
Giroux

PHI Receives:
Talented prospect, Bealieu, and a 1st round pick.

Suggestions on whom that prospect should be?

any of you Giroux people ever heard of the cap?

Giroux is at what 8.25M? How is MTL gonna get him, and resign guys like Radu? Someone like Pleky would have to be going back in such a deal, otherwise it would never work out

Galchenyuk won't need to be signed by MTL if he's part of the deal.

I said that more so based on this:
Quoting: DarylthePony

MTL Receives:
Giroux
PHI Receives:
Talented prospect, Bealieu, and a 1st round pick.


That makes the habs take on 8.25M without sending any cap back. One of Galchenyuk or Pleky or something who takes a toll of that cap has to go for something to work out

I really like Claude Giroux. I think he's one of the best 2-way centermen in the league. Having said that, you don't tie up 8.25M in cap space to that kind of center. You tie up 8+M$ in guys like Malkin, Crosby, Toews, Kane... Not Giroux.

Winning cup teams have two things going for them: they have solid deep rosters, and they have no bad contracts on there team.

Giroux is overpaid by atleast 1.5M for what he does.

Same with RNH. A guy getting 6M$ to be a 3C? We have one of them... Don't need another...
