<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Maroons1972</b></div><div>When you say it's not true... You base yourself on what stats?
Both players arrived in the league in 2013 and until 2018 they both played on different teams with Lindholm stats not coming close to Monahan stats
Then in 2018-2019 they were both for the flames and even if it was close, Monahan still had better stats.
Its only in 2019-2020 that Lindholm finally passed Monahan and we know at that point he was starting to be slowed and still managed to do better in the playoffs
Then it was downhill for Monahan which explains how the habs got him for free and a first pick.

Now that he is healthy, even with 2nd and 3rd line duties with no help on the wings he is doing better than Lindholm.

I'm not saying that Monahan will be a superstar but if Lindholm brought a 1st, a 3rd, Kuzmenko and 2 prospect including a top D, The habs should've had slightly more.
I understand it's luck and Monahan could've been injured again and we would've got nothing.
Hopefully he will help the Jets for a good push even if this means a bad pick for the habs</div></div>

I agree with everything you said but I don't think Kuzmenko was much of an asset. Maybe he will be built back up by the Flames but Calgary did the Canucks a massive favour by freeing 5.5M off their books in 2024-25. The Lindholm return is very close to the Monahan return as neither Canucks prospect that were moved are more than a B prospect, if that.

Monahan has done more with less talent around him, I agree. Not sure if the fit is perfect in Winnipeg by playing him with speedsters but that goes to show you again that the market was white hot for Monahan, fit didn't matter, he was the 2nd best option out there, which was the entire point that was made by most Habs fans here when it comes to scarcity and why this outcome was so obvious despite the negative, toxic posters spewing their BS left, right and centre.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Byrr</b></div><div>As of right now, it is highly unlikely Monahan gets a 1st.</div></div>

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Howie</b></div><div>Monahan isn't getting what you think. Lindholm was the top asset and got a 1st a cap dump and a good 3rd round d and bad one. To dump say it's the good 3rd dman that means. Lindholm got 1st a bad 3rd round dman and a cond 4th. Monahan ain't getting a first lol if you actually take the time to look at it</div></div>

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Oilers_29</b></div><div>Monahan and savard aren’t gonna return 1sts</div></div>

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Joblow</b></div><div>I like how the Drouin and Lehkonen narrative have change over a short spend of time. Bipolar fan who doesn’t watch other game then their team. That what it look like 👍</div></div>

It will be the same after this TDL. Monahan got traded for a 1st...?.. we..uh..thats..cause..Gms are dumb..lol..haha

Right because this isn't supposed to be a simulation taking into account the real life factors in trade which include the market tendencies. I swear some here think they are trading the players in real life and are on their teams payroll. The delusion goes DEEP!

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Andy_Dick</b></div><div>Hes played every single game this year with big minutes. I'd be less worried at 29 years of age and hes missed a lot of time in the last 3 years which means his body has been able to recuperate much like Gary Roberts that retired at 30 and came back with a venegance. He's not a physical player but a very smart player with an active stick. To me he's the type of add that is a perfect compliment to elite talent.

He plays with plugs at 5on5 yet his producing not just points but fantastic relative metrics. 13th in stick checks in the defensive zone, best winning faceoffs % on the pk in the league, he does so many little things so well and that go unnoticed because he isnt a speedster but know more as the meme, BORING SEAN MONAHAN

I still dont move Monahan unless its 1st round pick plus. Pageau, Statsny, Copp all got more return than this and Monahan is more affordable with a bigger market share. The scarcity dynamic is also crazy this year when Lindholm price is so huge and Monahan has outperformed him statistically.</div></div>


Another trade deadline. Another year where nothing is learned from previous deadlines. The market sets the price.
Rinse, repeat.
95% of the forum gets it wrong and badly. Not just wrong but unironically thinking they know better while being wrong in every way. My favourite part of delusion.

Says random guy on the internet with zero evidence. Same as Chiarot and Lehkonen in 2022, huh?!?
It's called opportunity cost. There are very few sellers with desirable assets. Supply/demand. And it only takes one team to offer the right price. Whether you believe 1sts are worth McDavid prices or Goodrow prices. It doesnt matter because some GMs will offer a Tanner Jeannot return. It takes one team not 31 other teams to make 1 offer.
That is simple.

Untouchables..

Xhekaj isnt being traded.
Going to the game last night and seeing the jerseys. I was just reinforced in my belief that he's a solution not a scapegoat or means to an end going forward.

I truly doubt Hughes pulls off a Bergevin power move ala Subban. This team needs fan favourites otherwise tickets sales will plummet eventually even with a waiting list because this team aint close to competing for a playoff spot and the fan base will become apathetic much like the Buffalo Sabres whom have half a building, a lot of nights!
That Sabres team is soft as butter, they got manhandled by the Ducks after coming home watching the game last night at the Bell Centre.
The Sabres are absolutely a heartless group that got outshot 19-2 in the 2nd period vs an AHL caliber Ducks roster with a rookies leading the way at center, on defence in Zellweger and Carlsson.

<a href="https://sabrenoise.com/posts/buffalo-sabres-nhls-dysfunctional-team-loss-ducks-01hmwy7jbbev" rel="nofollow noreferrer noopener" target="_blank">DO NOT BECOME THE SABRES AT ALL COSTS.</a>

Struble is simply the perfect bottom pair D, same as Kovacevic.
There is no rush to trade either as their pedigree wont allow them to seek much return. Both are physical, needed presences that can take the load of guys like Guhle, Reinbacher playing pk.

That leaves Barron, Harris as the clear trade chips. Barron offense and pedigree along with handiness makes him attractive but he hasnt fit on a team looking for a identity and with Guhle playing the right side, he's become redundant with Mailloux's physical potential being greater than Barron and you have the rock solid options of Guhle/Reinbacher on the right not to mention the Russians coming around 2026.

Savard's leadership right now is needed. You don't deal him unless a team targets him with a big offer. That offer is bigger than a late 1st.
I'm talking at least the same the Bolts paid with a 1st plus 3rd but preferably an B+ prospect. He's only making 3.5M for top pair shutdown D that blocks everything in sight. His blocks blow every defender in the league away per game and he's contributing offensively at a better rate than ever higher than guys like a RHD such as Liljegren in Toronto whos suppose to be this great puck mover in transition according to Leafs fans.

Evans simply has zero offense and can probably be had for less. Edmonton would probably offer a 4th, let's say.

Dvorak despite the broken narrative he's a cap dump here BUT with a year of term @4.45M with strong center play with a flair for offense on the PP in the bumper and young enough to contribute, will easily be in demand. The Hawks signed an older Jason Dickinson to a long term contract at the same AAV so Hawks fans and other trolls can get bent with that current cap reality.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Garak</b></div><div>I will give you a list of MTL players that are cap dumps and will cost something to move:
Dvorak
Anderson
Gallagher
Armia

Asking for a return on these players is gonna be a very hard ask, and any GM that actually pays for them is likely a fool.</div></div>

First off, Armia wont be retained, they have 1 retention spot left, the opportunity cost alone is worth more than a 4th, the tiniest amount of research would have shown you as well as the cap hit of the retention is more than the buy out at 800k and then 1.2M AAV the next two years. He will be bought out at worse.

Secondly. calling Anderson a cap dump is non sensical irrational hate without any context. Why even bring him up? He's not in this ACGM..The Hawks have as many players as MTL that you could consider a cap dump with recent signings including Jason Dickinson. I wonder why he's not a cap dump in your eyes, maybe because the cost is relative to the team's flexibility but that would mean you need to take off your homer blinders.

Thirdly, every single person knows Gallagher has a bad contract, a truly awful one same as Brent Seabrook back in the day. Neither Seabrook or Gallagher are relative to this ACGM. Deal with it!

Lastly, Dvorak isnt a cap dump as a faceoff specialist with a year of term left at 4.45M, little worth, maybe but by all means continue whining about Mrazek needing a 3rd round pick instead of a 4th as if that will change the fortunes of a toxic mess of an organization.
