<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Campabee</b></div><div>I didn't mean to make it sound as if Dubois was bad defensively. I only meant compared to Danault he was average to good. But that is because Danault is elite.

With regards to Suzuki you are absolutely right he is still just a prospect who had a good rookie season. Both Suzuki and PLD have great potential the issue is, from a Habs standpoint it doesn't make sense to give up Suzuki for Dubois. Especially seeing as Dubois has been around 3 years and hasn't put up more than 61 points. That could absolutely change quickly but until it does his trade value is a 2nd line center with POTENTIAL 1st line ceiling. So basically Danault + Norlinder for value then add a 1st for potential ceiling. That certainly doesn't mean that the Habs are going to give up Danault + KK +++ for Dubois and if the deal starts with Suzuki it makes no sense as he is a potential Bergeron type player. IMO there really isn't a fit between Montreal and Columbus for PLD. KK could potentially be a similar player and Suzuki could potentially be a Bergeron type of player. Therefore there is really no need to make the trade in the first place.</div></div>

I agree, the idea of the post was to make fun of all the garbage PLD things on the site. However, if Habs were to do this, I wouldn't be angry. The potential value of a trade for a top 6 player should always outweigh the known quantity (Dubois in this case). Which means having to give up a guy who could be a star in KK.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Ryminister_27</b></div><div>I guess you can't read you're own writing too. You said:

"Now why would Montreal ADD Suzuki when they can just wait 1 or 2 years for him to TURN INTO PLD or better for nothing? Seriously."

That's literally you saying that you thought I said Montreal would have to ADD Suzuki and that you though Suzuki would turn into PLD.

Suzuki will be a solid 2C. PLD has to potential to become a dominate 1C that plays in all situations and can be physically dominant. He'll always be way more valuable than Suzuki. Take off your Habs bias glasses and see that. It's not hard.</div></div>

Dubois is ideally a 2C at this point. He's pretty overrated on this website. He could be a solid 1C very soon but not yet.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Campabee</b></div><div>I don't care what you THOUGHT I meant, I knew you wanted to swap Suzuki and KK. Suzuki already plays in many of the same situations that PLD does. He already dominated when playing against Crosby and Malkin. He will be a top line center in 1-2 years these are all facts. PDL has been around the league for 3 years already and has not shown that he is much more than Philip Danault with slightly more offense and way less defense.</div></div>

Suzuki has also been overrated thus far. His regular season doesn't put him in top 5, maybe 10, rookies (although it was an excellent rookie class). He absolutely helped shut down Pittsburgh and was great against Philly so that did show his real potential as a Patrice Bergeron type. PLD is still growing so it can't be held against him that he's "just" Danault to this point. Dubois isn't as bad defensively as you seem to think and experience always brings better defense over time.
