Just easier to @ all of you.

Perrault is simply there because:

- Teams rarely ever make trades for high priced players without some cap coming out.
- The french factor looks good on MB and the franco fan base.
- Losing Domi means needing a live body that has experience to at least help replace his time on the roster.
- Habs have oodles of cap space so adding 4M Perreault for one single year is not a big deal.
- If he plays well but habs don't make the playoffs, they get another player to flip at the TDL for a pick. (See Scandella)
- Plays all forward positions. Habs could always use depth. Or is playing Weise acceptable to you?
- Also if I trade Domi i want him out of conference and WPG makes a lot of sense for them and us.

I don't like Perreault. I don't want Perreault. The only reason he is here is that he checks all the boxes of the Habs.

I prefer this trade to Philly for Ghost and Ratcliffe becuase Domi on the Flyers is going to haunt the Habs for a long time and Habs need to build for the future. Adding Ghost means they want to try and be good now which I DONT want them to think. IMO.

I don't want to do what MB wants because that means failing lol so Im giving my interpretation of what would happen if I could whisper in his ear my advice. :awesome

I agree, If the goal is try and get Ghost, I would prefer to trade Drouin. That is a better comparable. Domi should bring back a much better package than Ghost IMO.</div></div>

I could see Perreault becoming (maybe to a lesser extent) a version of Tatar. A change of scenery with a different role can really help players find their game.

And like you say, a 1-year commitment is a none issue. Very low risk. Worst case, you get rid of him before the 2021/22 season

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>exo2769</b></div><div>Ooo Dang. I knew you were going to put me on the spot. <strong>It's a different mind set at the draft than now. At the TDL...players are placed as a higher priority than picks. At the Draft...picks are placed at a higher priority than players</strong>. I'd probably throw a curveball at Dorion.

IF the Hawks get the #7...which remains to be seen now that they won't be stopping the puck from going in the net as often...

The NYI 1st I think is a given. no? Maybe we just assume that's part of it?

Shane Pinto is a UND guy and Bowman loves those guys. Toews/Schmaltz/Drake/etc... He's a year older and playing well. Stan might be able to sell than to the fan base in CHI. Pinto might see OTT draft 2 wingers in the top 7? Maybe he's the guy that stays another year to see how things go and he's the one than does the 4 and out? You know better than I do how many top tier forward prospects OTT already has. I'd at least pitch this to Dorion.

Then I'd probably toss in Shaw's LTIR (assuming he's retired and truly LTIR) contract... Seems like an acceptable Melnyk piece.

Maybe the OTT 2nd??? IDK</div></div>

Never thought of it that way, but very true ^ ^ ^

I really like Pinto. Especially after his world's junior. Definitely not untouchable especially considering the surplus of prospects Ottawa has.

So you're saying a mid-late 1st, an early 2nd and a good prospect (honestly, it can be anyone except for Batherson, Brannstrom, Norris, JBD or Formenton). Lol seems like I'm listing all our prospects but I'm really not hahahah.... for a contract (Shaw) and a top 10 pick.

I think I'd be ok with that. Both sides could justify the trade to fans.
