[Proposal] VAN-MTL


KB3RK17

Recommended Posts

Canucks acquire: F Devante Smith-Pelly

Canadiens acquire: F Brandon Prust, 2015 VAN 4th

Lineup when healthy:

Sedin-Sedin-Hansen

Burrows-Sutter-Vrbata

Baerstchi-Horvat-Etem

Dorsett-McCann-Smith-Pelly

Virtanen

Cracknell

Edler-Tanev

Hamhuis-Hutton

Sbisa-Biega

Bartkowski

Weber

Miller

Markstrom

Why Vancouver does it: We add size, grit and youth while moving a veteran on an expiring contract.

Why Montreal does it: They bring back Prust, who loves it in Montreal and is a guy who is great in the room. 

Lastly, both players may benefit from a change in scenery.

I can see why Vancouver does this, can't see why Montreal does it.  They have a lot of bottom 6 forwards, but giving up a young player with size like that for a few months of UFA Prust and a 4th seems low.

Montreal needs a glue player to boost the confidence in the locker room. And Prust is absolutely loved there and will re-sign.

Montreal traded Prust because they knew he was done.  He wasn't much better there last season than he's been here this season
