Please dont shoot the messanger ...I am just asking .....i am wondering if the timing wouldnt be perfect for a blockbuster trade....??
I dont know ...its a gambling , will Subban improve or has he reached his peak ??
Could we get an impact player for the playoffs if we include Subban in a package ????
Small History Lesson:
In 1969, the Bruis had 4 goalies in their system. Two NHL goalies, one in the minors, and one in college getting his law degree.
The expansion draft was coming and Harry Sinden and Milt Schmidt had decisions to make. They choose to keep Gerry Cheevers and Eddie Johnson, they exposed the kid in minors to the draft, and they "TRADED" the right to the kid getting his law degree.
1970: Cheevers and Johnson win the cup
1971: The kid graduates from Cornell and after 6 games in the minors get the call from Montreal and beats the Bruins in 7 games. His name Ken Dryden
1972 Cheevers anmd Johnson win the Cup. Cheevers, Sanderson, Pie McKenize bolt to the WHA
1973 & 1974 The expansion Philadelphia Flyers lead by a goalie they got from the Bruins in the 1969 exansion draft win back to back cups, the goalie's name Bernie Parent.
Stanley, if you don't mind I don't want to live thru that experience again...........
