Hard no from MTL.
We don’t ne another small forward, especially at the expense of a big forward.
We don’t need another LHD. We have Edmundson, Romanov, Guehle, Harris, Norlinder, Struble, Fairbrother, Xjekac…
It just doesn’t fit team needs (cap relief, RHD prospects, size & skill at forward)

If nobody gives him the right deal, he could change his mind about playing in MTL. On a one year deal, he knows he’ll see the net, and he knows that he’ll get moved at the deadline and can control his own destiny. Plus, he can get a good deal in Montreal, and knows that the Habs will retain 50% at the deadline, making him available as an insurance plan to every team in the league.
Signs 5M$ deal, with 4M$ being bonus money at signing. By trade deadline day, there will be less than 50k$ in actual salary to pay, and he’ll only add a little less than 400k$ in cap hit to a team.
With those kinds of numbers, every playoff bound team would love to have him.
1: I don’t think Kulak has that much value. Alone, he gets you a mid-late round pick. With that logic, I doubt Poehling and a pick gets you those 2 pieces.
2: O’Rourke, who I’m sure is a fine prospect, would end up being “another” left shot dman in our system, to go along with Romanov, Guehle, Norlinder, Harris, Fairbrother, Struble…
