    De Haan strikes me as another Alzner.

    Yep, however I think this will be his last contract if he accepts. They have a lot of draft picks and only a limited # of allowed contracts.

    They can save face if they trade him for another AHLer, with hometown appeal. Like maybe Dominic Turgeon? Send McCarron back to Michigan.

    First Tavares has to sign, then remaining teams will bid for Stastny. Habs will be busy here. Then guys like Roussel are next priority. Plekanec maybe last resort.

    6, 67, and 31 requires lots of cap dollars in return. We will never be a floor team

    Being an awful team doesn’t guarantee anything...you can still be competitive while rebuilding.

    You trade your vets and pick up salary in the process . The mission is to pick up 1-3 year term players that teams want to dump , and we get the prospects/picks / or young players in return.

    By the time we improve with our own youth those contracts are off the books.

    Competitive while rebuilding sounds like a lot of useless points gathered when trying to tank.

    Not if you want a top 5 pick. It's one thing if you have smart asset management, but when you don't and you aren't getting high draft picks you can forget rebuild. You are basically doing what every other middling team is doing and what we've been doing for 25 years. How many stanley cup finals has that led to recently, 0/3/5/8 ? Guess which one.

    Is a top-5 pick an absolute must though? Had the Habs drafted Theodore (2013), Point (2014), Aho (2015) at their given draft positions in round 1-3. How much improved would the team be?

    It’s more important to be competent at recognizing talent than draft position. Lots of top-5 non-1st overall picks flounder.

    Take on expiring contracts. MB doesn't have the vision or knowledge to do a rebuild properly.
