    I believe I was the first poster to suggest packing Emelin and DD. That was about two months ago! Do they still give out gold stars? In rock we trust, it's rock or bust.

    Don't these nights usually turn into horror shows? When was the last time that the Bell Centre had a buck a beer night? In rock we trust, it's rock or bust.

    Oz - I think the problem here is that we are looking at this from a Montreal perspective. Let's be Colorado for a few minutes. We can't re-sign ROR. He has another year left on his contract. IF we could trade him at the deadline, the bidding war would be quite limited due to circumstance. That basically means he gets moved this summer. Colorado has to do that in order to maximize the asset. Considering ROR's age, extra contract year and potential, the Avs will want a young roster winger, a young roster Dman and another asset that is long range. If I'm Joe Sakic, I'm looking at Beaulieu, Gallagher and either a 1st round pick or top end prospect. If Montreal won't part with Gallagher, then I'm taking Sekac but you'll have to up the ante on the third asset (Hudon/Scherbak). In rock we trust, it's rock or bust.

    Ozmodiar - I can't reply to your post down below. Trading DD, Emelin and Ghetto for ROR does not clear 8M in salary cap space. ROR = 6M Emelin + DD = 7.6 Difference = 1.6 Subtract Tinordi's salary to replace Emelin 600,000 Saved cap space = 1M (Andrighetto's salary doesn't count as he is in Hamilton). In terms of re-signing ROR after next year, IF you think ROR is a true building block, then Montreal's main players are basically set in stone moving forward into the next five years. They are Price, Galchenyuk, O'Reilly, MaxPac, and Subban. They will all eventually be north of 7M. 5 players will equal 40M. That doesn't leave much leverage or cap space to improve the D. Two and half years from now you would only be able to count (presently) on two decent defensemen - Subban and Beaulieu. Some might say Tinordi but right now he's nothing more than a prospect. I totally get trading for ROR for the next year and half of service. But Colorado knows they have to get this deal right. It won't be in the same league as Seguin but it will be a loss. They don't need DD, Emelin is a train wreck and Ghetto is an undersized prospect with a 50/50 chance of becoming a pro. Some other team is going to top that deal. In rock we trust, it's rock or bust.

    St Louis going to want a two year deal at 6M a season. I'll pass. Rangers got beat on that deal unless they win the Cup (last year) or this year. In rock we trust, it's rock or bust.

    I get it now. That deal is crazy in my eyes. ROR is going to demand 6.5-7.0M for eight years. I'll pass. As bad as Emelin can be, I don't think Weaver is better and Tinordi is better suited to trying to make the club next October where he gets the full benefit of training camp and exhibition games. Does the team really want to give Glencross 25M/5 years? In rock we trust, it's rock or bust.

    Who is ROR? Who replaces Emelin on defense? In rock we trust, it's rock or bust.

    Sadly, the owner of the site is quite ill and can no longer maintain his site. That is why I thought it might be prudent for TSN to buy it. It would generate a lot of visits and hits as well as helping out this fellow with his medical costs. In rock we trust, it's rock or bust.
