What are both those teams’ worst contracts? Because that’s what we’d have to take in return.

A quick swim by Cap Friendly shows me we’d probably have to take Shea Weber from the Habs. Is he even playing?

Even if he isn't, wouldn't he instantly still be our 2nd or 3rd best defenseman?

So Weber is outscoring Benn so far this season. And his point pace last year wasn't far off Benn's.

According to sources in contact with Stars management, the Stars have indeed been contacted by two teams regarding the structure of a Jamie Benn trade, the Carolina Hurricanes and the Montreal Canadiens.


The reddit soyboys think this is a bad thing.


Hopefully it's true.
Montreal is desperate to add a "big name" forward.

Karl Alzner is Montreal's worst contract player.

Way too much. He's the Habs 1st D-men and their captain, Bergevin can now legitimately claim the win in the blockbuster trade Weber-Subban. No way he will let him go.

Too bad it didn't take Benn and drop him in Ottawa.

I guess my question is, if they really can't fully figure out what is wrong with him, how can he have a rehab program?

Benn dressed up in Waldo is pretty accurate I'd say.

19. One scout who has seen Dallas a few times: “The way they grind you, they are built for the playoffs. That’s why they gave St. Louis so much trouble. The problem is, you have to get there. The regular season is not like that.”

Oh, but according to the majority of Stars fans on the internet, Nill has done a GREAT job putting together this roster.....

To some degree, I think Montgomery's system is ill-suited to the players Nill has put together. Which is bad management on Nill's part. But even factoring in aging curves and natural slowdowns, it doesn't make sense that guys like Pavelski (who's been a consistent 60-point minimum player for like a decade) or Seguin just completely lose all offensive talent.

I suppose it’s possible that Monty is a really dynamic coach and is just playing super Hitchball because he knows he doesn’t have the horses to play a better system.

Yeah right.

There’s no way we’ve scored 25 goals this season.

He didn’t say anything groundbreaking. He really just summarized the last five seasons.

It would be reasonable to think a roster filled with fairly offensive players, Klingberg, Heiskenen, Seguin, Benn, Radulov and Pavelski could score more than 2 goals per game.

It's strange to take the position that coaching is the main problem and needs to be changed immediately while also putting conditions on who can make the hiring decision.

I say that because, if Nill is the only one Bob accepts as being qualified to hire a coach, what do you do when Nill refuses to make a coaching change? As stubborn as Nill is with decisions, I doubt Nill is even considering firing Monty.
