If Murray wanted to trade Lee, he would. He either doesn't want to, or has tried to no avail or hasn't gotten an offer that makes sense for the team.

    You also haven't taken into consideration future cap space (as I said with Phillips and Karlsson, and plenty other FA's that will be due raises while we are stuck with Savard's contract).

    And there's been no consideration for our goalie situation. And you also just assumed that Kovalev will walk and his $5M cap hit helps us... while at the same time you lose a top 6 winger. Where do you get a replacement?

    Also, the cap could go down any year, by any amount. And there may not be a season past this one for a while if there's a lockout.

    Murray's the GM and in charge because he has considered all these options and scenarios.
    not trying to attack you but chances are that the cap will likely go up rather then down, making room for players. i don't think murray will try to go concervative just to keep room for that possibility. also with kovalev leaving next year that's 5 mill in cap space, he'll probably be replaced with a younger player. i would agree that it would be tight fit to get savard in here but i made it work with the cap calculator.
    as far as re-signing leclaire, the goalie market right now is dictating that he'll get a drop in salary, even with a good year. if he want's that much of a raise then i'm sure we'll find other options to go with elliott.

    IMO phillips wil re-sign with longer term and shorter cap hit. also i doubt we re-sign ruutu(making room for younger player) or shannon, and kuba or campoli might be traded also.
    so there are many ways to make savard fit. i'd be more worried about his health then the (very friendly) cap hit.

    the way i'd imagine a trade going down would of been a combination or pick/ prospect and low paid roster player(they'd probably want some D since they're hurting in that departement(so campoli or lee might be options), then we'd either make more room by trading kuba.(if we can't find takers, and i doubt it, we can waive him, i know it's not murray's style)

    The Tampa Bay Lightning are on the verge of announcing a trade, according to Erik Erlendsson via Twitter.

    He's speculating it is an AHL transaction involving the Canadiens.

    Yeah, people were so excited, then it's an AHL contract. Everyone wants news of any kind. Ahhhhh!


    PS Am I wrong to say Boucher would know Montreal's AHL players/prospects pretty well?

    Yeah he should know them, but Montreal would too and wouldn't give up a player to him for free. And it's definitely a Norfolk deal according to Erlendsson

    Desjardins? Wow, I liked that guy, thought he might have a shot in the NHL when Auld's deal expired. Very surprised.

    Wasn't Ramo in the KHL (and not good in the AHL or NHL if you don't mind me saying).

    so apperently spector is saying the B's are still actively trying to trade marc savard. Sarcasm
    with 2 teams possible in this mix could we see the sens come thru? Naughty
    maybe a 3 way trade is possible?

    i'm not giving up till the b's are out of cap trouble BagoverHead

    A poster on another site is saying the Sens are up to something big that has an 80% chance of happening/that they're trying to accomplish before camp. He also says he's not just ****ing with us. Take it for what it's worth but it could be related to that Spector report.

    That guy is definitely legit, but I don't like "80%".

    That would certainly be something. I certainly wasn't expecting another move until March.
