    Interesting you say they've beaten the creativity out of his game- something I've seen discussed here the last few days. I've never been to a Bulldogs game, but word was that when Guy Boucher was coaching there, Subban took advantage of the 1-3-1 system and put up a lot of points.

    Went over to EOTP to take a quick glance around. Enjoyed this bit about Beaulieu being sent down: "For Beaulieu though, it makes less sense. Since the beginning of November, Beaulieu has been by far the biggest possession driver on the Canadiens, and actually leads the entire team in Corsi for percentage, meaning while he's on the ice the Canadiens have a higher percentage of shot attempts than at any other time. He's been doing that without getting an offensive zone push, but he's been undone by poor on-ice shooting percentage, and a single high profile giveaway that ended up in the back of his net, a giveaway that was a perfect pass to Dale Weise, that just happened to hop over his stick."

    A few paragraphs from Spector's Hockey (continuing our trade DD talk): EDMONTON JOURNAL: Jim Matheson runs down a list of possible trade targets for the struggling Oilers. Goalie options include San Jose’s Antti Niemi and Minnesota’s Josh Harding. Center options include St. Louis’ Patrik Berglund, Philadelphia’s Brayden Schenn and Vincent Lecavalier, Montreal’s Lars Eller and Detroit’s Stephen Weiss. Matheson also believes Jordan Eberle would be part of any trade talk with the St. Louis Blues. He also wondered if the Montreal Canadiens would part with center David Desharnais in exchange for Perron. SPECTOR’S NOTE: Yep, it’s all Oilers all the time right now in the rumor mill. There seems a sense a trade could go down at any time, but of course it’s also possible this could drag on for days or weeks. Of the Oilers who could be dealt, Perron is the most obvious choice, but his concussion history affects his trade value. It could help if they package him with Petry or one of their prospect defensemen. [...] The Canadiens have moved Galchenyuk back to left wing so they don’t seem keen to part with Desharnais or Eller.

    Just think of it as that dessert nobody likes to eat on its own, but when surrounded by all sorts of other great or marginally better desserts, it starts to look OK. Throw in some lies about where it comes from, and Bingo, people may try it and start liking it.... Maybe even defend it on dessert recipe websites

    As was already discussed and probably posted earlier (from Spectors Hockey) : RDS.CA: cited the Edmonton Journal reporting a rumor several weeks ago of Perron being offered to the Montreal Canadiens in exchange for center Lars Eller. SPECTOR’S NOTE: Changes are likely coming for the Oilers, either via trade or coaching change. If the Oilers aren’t willing to part with a core player then Perron is probably the best trade chip they’ve got, but he’s not going to land a top-line center. At best, he might fetch a decent second-line center. I believe it would be a big mistake for the Canadiens to part with Eller for Perron. Still, if the Canadiens are willing to do that deal then by all means the Oilers should go for it. Eller has second-line potential and is better qualified than the promising but in-over-his-head Leon Draisaitl. I don’t doubt the Oilers have interest in Berglund but I don’t see the Blues taking Perron back. The Sharks won’t part with Niemi until after Alex Stalock has returned from minor knee surgery and has some games under his belt.
