Trade 1: Booth to MTL for Briere.

Briere is rumoured to be moved, this would be a perfect time to offer Booth to MTL for a straight swap. Similar salaries and It also saves us a buyout for Booth because Briere's contract expires at the end of the season.

Trade 2: Edler + Schroeder + Jensen to PHI for Simmonds + 2nd

-

Summary:

We added size, skill, experience and playoff clutchness. (if that's even a word lol)

Booth>Briere even including the contracts. Booth is productive this season.

That is a bit too much from us. Take out Jensen, their 2nd and make their pick lower so it looks like: Edler, Schroeder for Simmonds + 4th-6th round pick.

Not sure if PHI does it though since they have enough LDs (Coburn, Timonen, Gill, Grossman, Mezaros, Streit, Gustafsson).

Briere signed for 2 years. He still have another year left after this one, like booth.

Remove Jensen or replace Philly's 2nd by a first and you have a deal.

oh.... you're right D: damn it lol ok scrap the first trade. lol

Not that bad..there's the basis for something there. We'd have 4 extra bodies, so switch Dalpe for Jensen. Leave Jensen to develop more in Utica.

Edler, Schroeder, Dalpe. For: Simmonds, 2nd, conditional 2015 4th(if they qualify BOTH PO's). Worthwhile insurance for Philly.

Agree on Briere deal. They need size; we need a speedy PO-performing, vet-leader. Might still have to buy him out, this summer,(pending performance).

A Booth for Briere swap makes sense for both teams. Briere fits our needs for scoring in the playoffs (if we make them) and Booth gives Montreal a big bodied forward that thrived in the East. If he drops to us put a claim in for Adam Cracknell

Cracknell - Richardson - Kassian

At this moment Booth for Briere is intriguing... Montreal could use a boost of size and speed never hurts.

For us its a risk. Booth is playing better than Briere atm. And Kass / Booth is imposing physically. But where Richardson leads in work rate, he leaves Kass as the primary play maker. And Kass just does not handle the puck enough to make the line truly dangerous.. What would be exciting is Briere centering Booth and Kass!

People would hate this, but we have Hansen / Burrows as similar players. Briere is a cap drain for Montreal ATM. But bold moves march us forward; Here is an alternate proposal;

Burrows & Jensen (gives them a big wing prospect, they need size) for Briere and Beaulieu (gives us a PMD prospect). Salaries wash. Burrows waives NTC to go home, Briere to play!

Beaulieu is a beaut puck rushing PP QB prospect with pressure performance in his veins. He would look great with big body / big shot but otherwise steady stay at home Jason Garrison. Beaulieu put up 55 points in 65 playoff games with the QMJHL St John Sea Dogs over 4 years.That includes 16 play off and 45 reg season points totaling 61 as a 17 year old in junior. Plus two trips to the memorial cup.

Edler + Schroeder should be value sufficient for Simmonds, but add Alberts and take on Meszaros to further incent a deal, plus balance roster and number of contract issues, Very happy to take Edler for Voracek straight up as alternate...

Danny Hank Simmonds

Higgins Kesler Santorelli

Booth Briere Kassian Great role for Briere to extend his career

Sestito Richardson Hansen

Weise

Hamhuis Tanev

Beaulieu Garrison

Stanton Bieksa

Corrado, Meszaros

From Hockeys Future on Beaulieu, a 21 year old 6'3" D who had 31 points last year in the AHL;

Talent Analysis

As well as quarterback the play from the blue line, Beaulieu is a highly mobile defenseman, who carries the puck well and can make things happen on the rush. He is smart about limiting the amount of chances he takes. He is still developing physically. Beaulieu is equally adept shooting and distributing the puck.

Beaulieu projects into a top-three defenseman in the NHL within the next few years.

I don't think Montreal does this for a number of reasons.

First, based on his performance before his injury it appears that Burrows may be on the decline ( in a very big way). Add to that the fact that he's signed through the 2016-2017 season and he becomes a very risky aquisition. In addition A lot of people believe Burrows is a glorified 3rd liner who stats are a primarily a product of his time playing with the twins.

Montreal is looking to boost scoring, Briere hasn't fit into their system and are looking to cut ties and find someone who will help now. Burrows injury, his poor performance prior to the injury, and his long term contract are just too many negatives for him to be attractive to the Canadiens

Secondly. Montreal needs Beaulieu more than Jensen. Beaulieu is arguably a better prospect than Jensen (young big puck moving defencemen are more valuable than young wingers with size) Beaulieu is also much closer to being NHL ready.

In addition Montreal currently only has 3 defencemen signed for next season. The assumption is the will re-sign Subban, Markov, and Diaz. But that still leaves spots available for Tinordi and Beaulieu to step in to.

All in all this just isn't a deal that makes sense from Montreals side

Edler

Schroeder

1st

For

Briere

Gallagher

Sedins burrows

Gallagher kesler Santorelli

Booth briere kassian

Higgins Richardson Hansen

That is amazing

Both teams say no

Overpayment on Vancouvers part and they end up with a +35 contract with Briere

Trade doesn't address Montreal's need for more offence. Edler and Schroeder are both hurt and, even if healthy neither add more to the offence than Gallagher does on his own

Edler - NTC

Breire - NTC and wants to stay in the east due to family issues.

Montreal gets out of Briere and gets Burrows who will fit amazingly well into the speed and pressure game of the Habs. Nor could they expect Evander Kane for Briere (or for Beaulieu). Beaulieu, is also redundant once Markov, Diaz and Subban are signed. They have 3 if not 4 PMD's and Tinordi is big, mean and adds grunt. Just as this year, Tinordi will be the priority. Jensen add's futures in a key area the Habs need (size and scoring) to keep balance in the deal.

Burrows will increase their scoring right now. Have you not watched the Canucks the last 5 years?

Burrows was not scoring before his last injury. But thats vastly different than pooping the bed. Briere was something like minus ten, with zero points and 2 shots in a 2 week period. Burrows was in fact playing well in all facets of the game and generating legit chances; just was a bit thunderstruck. His history over the last 3 years is that whatever line he plays on wins, because he does all the hard slugging (fore-checking, puck battles, fight for position in front of the net. He still has the skills to dangle, pass and shoot with good players. Including the Sedin's, and he also has solid value defensively even when he does not score.

My opinion / estimation is that Burrows coming off injuries was just missing the game shape that offers explosiveness and endurance. His scoring will resume.

Burrows > Briere (for 2 years now, Briere obviously over his career) and Briere has a bad contract.

We would not trade a Canuck legend who works his arse off for an inferior player / contract. We do it because Briere has the potential to make us very deep up the middle. But straight up its bad value and a big risk, Briere possibly even negative value. Getting Beaulieu who is > than Jensen, also fills a key need for the Canuck, is 80% of the value in the deal for us.

Im sorry, but Burrows is a huge question mark. Yes I've watched him put up points with the Canucks., But he did it playing with the Sedins. Anson Carter lit it up playing with them too and he was a third liner at best. I think this is a terrible deal for Montreal. Montreal can get out of the Briere contract without taking on a player who appears to be on the downside of his career, and without giving up a blue chip prospect
