I think the best thing for them is to do a multi player deal, cause the team really needs a change. they need a lot more then just one for one swap. Or Perron for one player plus prospect. If they want to be respectable NOW they need to do a multi player move, change it up. If they want to throw in the towel, hope for MCD draft, and rebuild AGIAN, then sure trade away Perron for a roster player plus picks/prospects. If it's the 2nd scenario, Habs would be able to offer something good. But if it's the multi player deal type....MTL doesn't need to bring in 2-3 new players....or remove 2-3 players from this 1st place team.

Well management seems to like to reward their AHL players when they need a call up. I can see him given a short look. Sure Beau wouldn't be happy. Thing is, we already have 7 dmen with the team. 2 would have to get hurt before the team calls up a Dman.

Junior hockey is a looooooonnnnnggg way from NHL. Years have past by, and if he was a "star" in CHL he obviously didn't have enough in him to translate to AHL and NHL. Not to knock the kid. As a 2nd rounder, he is probably a NHLer. But he's a bottom guy, there won't be any "hanging on to our hats" if he's on the ice when PK is.

Tomi... you understand that a team can only have 23 players on their roster at a time, right? You also understand the concept of cap management, right? That's why these guys get sent down and called up. The team also is trying to be fair to players. Then calling up guys like Bowman and Tangradi is also about rewarding them for their hard work in AHL, and giving them a shot in NHL again. They signed Bowman as a UFA, they prob told him he'd get at least one call up. All this up and down, is a good thing. It's what teams with smart management do.

To me a 3rd liner needs to have at least 10 goals in him a season. I don't think Tangradi has that in him. I see him as a common 4th liner. Doesn't mean he isn't a NHler, just that he needs to become a real good 4th liner so that teams will resign him or he will keep moving around ahl/nhl. He is sort of like White. Can help a team if they need that role and he plays that role well. IF not, move on to the many other 4th liners waiting for a turn.

wish they would be so desperate. They had Gilbert there before and let him go. Can't imagine they want him back.

Wow, Mr Gilette probably wishes he still owned it now!! But altho a great owner for fans, I think MR Molson is also very passionate....plus has passion to make lots of money and knows a championship is the way to do that! they made a profit of $127.2M last year. Guess he doesn't really care if I can't watch the games on RDS across Canada anymore!
- Comment on Canadiens given two days off; Nathan Beaulieu sent to Hamilton (2014-11-24 13:51:40)
adam...maybe Lets not forget that both Beau and Tin are RFAs. If they had made the team out of camp, and where doing well as rookies....their contracts demands would be higher. But at this point...they were "given every chance" and didn't succeed so we will now low ball our offer. As RFA on bridge contracts they weren't going to be able to ask for a lot. But still there is a diff between still being in AHL or being a regular in NHL come the summer when contract talk start. Yet at end of day, I do believe MB was hoping they would be ready and I am sure never thought he'd have to go get 2 more Dmen so early in the season.

Repost...cause I'm lazy to retype my thought... Habs are a decent team. And like ALL teams in the NHL…if you don’t put out the effort needed, you will lose. (and a few times maybe still win cause of your goalie or lucky bounce etc). But lack of effort, lack of sticking with your system will cause you to lose a lot more then win in the NHL. Habs are no different. When they work hard, they get good results. When they get outworked, they will lose (minus the few exceptions at the start of the year). YEs our PP has to get going, but to me our biggest need is still on D. Right now we have 7 Dmen with the team. Individually I like them all, but as a unit there is something missing. Whether its that we need to find someone who can play with PK so that Markov can lead another pairing. Whether its the actual system. I don’t know. But something is missing. The duos still are not set in stone and it’s not cause all 7 deserve to play so Habs keep rotating players. It’s that outside of PK/Mark the other duos are just all lacking. It’s like frwd lines, the players have to click and have chemistry. We aren’t seeing that in our D pairings. And I think it’s the actual players that aren’t suitable for each other, as oppose to them not being “good” dmen individually.
