There's a reason Halak got the starting job over Price in the playoffs. He's just straight up better, and he proved his worth and i don't think this was a very smart move by the Habs. It would have been a better idea to move Price.

Eller was a first round pick in 2007, nice size, good numbers.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

hockeydb went down as well but eller had 29 points in 49 games as a 19 year old in the SEL, then came to the states and had 57 points in 70 games as a 20 year old in the AHL. that looks like a second-line forward to me.

I wonder if they put a call into the Flyers to see about Carter, Giroux or Van Reimsdyke?

What a steal for St. Louis a #1 goalie for 2 prospects??? Halak will command some $ and probably get it, but St. Louis has been stocking up on picks and will get replacement for these traded players next week. Montreal has away of destroying prospects.

Montreal will probably not make the playoffs with Price in net.

Maybe there was a bad phone connection, and Gainey really said "Laraque." :evil:

No one will know who really won this trade for a few years but for the here and now it looks like the Blues made out big time.

Yeah I mean getting any one of those would beat out this package. Eller's a good prospect, one of their top 5 but the other guy I don't think is regarded that high. Did they just not call the Flyers?

According to McKenzie, the Flyers Sharks and Bolts were bidding as well. All three you named have more value than Halak however.

Here are the stats for Schultz

Looks like he has grinder written all over him if he ever makes the show.

"Jay Pandolfo's last game at Boston University was against the Wolverines," Madden said. "My job was to cover his line. Jay had scored something like 30 goals in 30 games that season. And that was his 31st game. Guess what happened?"

"We always joke about it now," Madden said. "Jay tells me: 'You shut me down that game and you've been shutting me down ever since. The only problem is, now you're playing with me. ' "

Yes, but the Flyers are deep enough on offense, and the common wisdom there is that a lack of quality goaltending is keeping them from winning the cup.

Maybe it could have been Halak and a 2nd/1st round pick for Carter.

Well this move will almost certainly aid in the Cryers "not" getting Price now. ALot of speculation around Philly has been they will trade for Price, since the thought was that the Habs would certainly keep Halak. I guess MOntreal isnt ready to give up on Price yet since he is still very young.

But I am glad the Flyers wont get him either... Add with Leighton being a free agent now they really will have to make a move for a goalie...

the flyers cannot afford halak and they would never give up carter for him.

congratulations st. louis, you just got the chance to pay a guy based on 20 games.

Buy low, sell high...

I'm guessing the first call Chris Mason will receive midnight July 1st will be from Voorhees. The second call will be from Arlington, Virginia.

Sure but its better than paying Chris Mason the 3.75 he was asking for.

Really the Blues picked up a guy who should be their starter for a marginal prospect in Schultz, and a good prospect in Eller. Looking at the blues depth chart up front Eller was probably looked at as expendable if the right deal came around. Today it did.

Wait a minute. Is Halak a UFA or RFA?

i agree that eller is expendable and that st. louis certainly has good reason to make this deal. i would just rather gamble on a josh harding or someone like that. that player may not have been available but there's usually some goaltending lurking out there for cheap.
