Habs Acquire Joel Edmundson

I think he can play with Petry and move Kulak down to the third pair, where he’ll be a lot better. Mete isn’t an NHL player.

glad to see the Habs trying to spend $$

Spend it on better players , big time squeeze coming to players , teams are capped out and budgets are slashed

I would of used my cap space to take on salary for picks and prospects

Too much for a 5/6 D , those should be 1-2 mil

I am all in favour of not resigning Mete and dumping our depth trash but if all he is is a 3rd pair guy , why bother

Players will be starving in November for jobs
That's why I'm happy Carolina traded Edmundson before they got tempted to re-sign him. He's fine in a depth role, but that's just too much money for that kind of player. Montreal has the room under the Cap to spend $3-4 mil on a 6th D ... I guess.

Too much money for a lower pairing Dman. These are the guys you constantly need coming through your system and you trade them away or let them walk when they get too expensive.

What? We gave up a 5th round lotto ticket for first dibs on signing a 3rd pairing guy in a depressed UFA market?

I would have kept the lotto and taken my chances on finding a 6th d-man in the open market

He better not sign him to heavy dollars and term. MB is blinded by D. He is awful at evaluating them which is funny because he was one.

Is it out of the realm of possibility that Jets would want Chariot as part of a potential package?

maybe. All I know is that every time MB makes a useless trade, half this board (occasionally myself) starts speculating that the deal must be the precursor to a bigger move. But that never happens. Will be happy to be proven wrong.
