Halak traded to Blues

Rate this topic

65 posts in this topic

wow...after all he did, couldn't afford him or what? didn't see this coming.

Remember, he asked for a trade at one point in the season.

Plus, he was reportedly pissed off that the Habs took his starting job away as soon as they could in the playoffs when he faltered a little against Washington.

Could simply be a case of Halak telling them he wasn't going to sign with them.

Solid goaltending with every Central team now. Well, that team in Chicago in my mind still has a problem but they have that one trophy too.

He's an RFA this year. Both he and Price are set to be RFA's, so Montreal had a decision to make.

Habs get Lars Eller & Ian Schultz.

Seriously - who are these 2 guys?...I've never heard of them.

Eller was a 2007 1st round pick...don't know much about Schultz other than he is the younger (shorter) brother of Jeff Schultz.

Are these high-end prospects? They better be if they came in for Halak... I'm shocked they chose Price over him. How much is potential worth when your playoff MVP has to be traded to allow it to develop further?

Only because he wanted to be a starter. Habs should of kept him over Price imo. He outplayed Price pretty much every time he played, but then again who knows what went on behind the scenes.

Two decent prospects for Halak, congrats Montreal, I'd be very surprised if you make the playoffs with Price as the starter all season.

Not exactly. Eller projects to be a good top-six forward with good two-way play.

Schultz is a power-forward, so his offensive development will determine if he becomes a top-six forward or a third/forth-line grinder.

There has to be something going on here. Halak must have not wanted to stay in Montreal and maybe someone in the Blues organization (and probably other teams) knew this. Montreal didn't have much to bargain with if Halak had made it clear he wasn't going to re-sign with them. On the bright side, my Price jersey isn't out of date... for now.

Price had little trading value right now. They would've got basically nothing out of him. He still has great potential though and fits for the Canadiens mould. Halak is obviously the better goalie at the moment, but the trade has other factors as well.

This is kinda funny seeing how all the Habs fans were going crazy for Halak thinking he was the second coming of Roy or something. At least we get to watch another season of Montreal taunting and booing Price.
