    It will cost more than a late 1st to dump $12 mil of dead cap and return the far better player and a high pick in the Arizona deal.

    All deals are massively slanted in Montreal's favour.

    Bruins already have enough left shooting defenseman who can’t clear the puck.

    Not in box, not with a fox
    Not in house, not with a mouse
    No Sean Monahan Sam I am.

    The Avs don’t trade 1st for UFA’s
    The Avs don’t trade for players that don’t fit their profile
    Nobody trades anything of substance for a guy who never plays a full season.
    I beg MTL fans get a new obsession.

    “I hope Colorado gives US” - not a fan huh?
    For the sake of argument where would COL play Monahan? Obviously not 1C. Not 3C Colton centering Wood and LOC has been arguably COL’s best line. RyJo has been just fine at 2C with 9 goals. He doesn’t skate well enough to play on the wing with MacKinnon and COL has plenty of wingers. Throw in COL mgmt has traded exactly one 1st when they miscalculated the goalie market in the off season, and all you have is a one fan base who’s team took a cap dump 18 months ago and has gotten a guy who when he plays is good but he always seems to be hurt. COL just isn’t trading a 1st for a guy like that.

    Monahan started out hot but has come back to Earth lately. I think the Habs should (1) move him ASAP so there is no risk of him getting hurt, and (2) be willing to settle for something like a 2nd or even a 3rd and a decent prospect.

    It was a tongue in cheek answer to your not so lengthy post. I actually got a chuckle out of it.

    Habs fan here and I love your enthusiasm. That said, can you advise what type of weed you smoke that makes you think the Oilers would trade a top pair d-man who can QB the power play in return for a backup goalie and a 3rd pair de-man who might be in the minors if on a stronger team?

    Doesn't matter... Bouchard is in his early 20's, he'll improve his defense, no team would trade him, other assets + a 1st rounder for a backup goalie and 3rd pair d-man no matter how hard you would try to sell the "Bouchard is a lousy d-man" argument.

    Does everybody in montreal have an obsession with SM, I mean there's some definite masochism up there but why do they think it's the same in Denver? Avs decline!
