    Armia is a nice add...taking care of the future (JK) is quite smart...

    That would make sense. I’m for it if the Habs can bank at least a first and a top prospect line Thomas from St. Louis.

    I really don’t know much about him. His numbers are underwhelming.

    Does anyone know if he’s a fast skater? Seems to be the theme. They’re looking to push the pace.

    Oh wait, Armia is Finnish? I see the reasoning. Let’s make Kotkaniemi comfy. Sigh.

    Not sure about skating but he is a big body. Doesn’t play heavy from what I’ve noticed but he doesn’t mind digging in corners or behind the net.

    Friedman was right...the hush hush rebuild is on

    Powerful skater, not much of a passer but has good hands - just hasn’t been able to adjust to smaller NA ice surface

    Also I don’t think I’d bother buying Mason out. Has to be done by today, might be better off just letting him suck or maybe get it going again under Waite and try to flip him later around deadline time

    His hands does look smooth and he looks good in front of net. Maybe a decent guy to try in front on the PP.

    A penalty killer that scores shg. I see what the Habs like about him. Another plumber.

    Nice move , I would of forced Chevy for a second rounder but this ok .

    Forget the UFA market 2 more salary dump pick ups like this is better ....more picks ....more prospects ......1-2 year term deals

    Shouldn’t we get more in return for helping Jets with over 4M cap relief ?

    That’s why I don’t like it. Help the Jets sign Stastny by taking on a bad contract for two garbage picks and a third line winger. Because we don’t have enough of those in the pipeline.

    A 7th next year and a 4th in 2020 is garbage. Chips to move up a few slots at best.

    Oh no its a great deal, cannot you read?? Makes no sense to me. Does not help us at all but fills up the cap space.
