Thank you for your input sir. Much appreciated.
Habs won't trade Caufield.... 100% sure.
Agree, the return would have to be lucrative for this to happen
If the Habs do trade Caufield, will RDS still follow every one of his games?
Anything can happen. As long as MB's job is not under pressure I'm fairly comfortable he won't trade him.
If he is in danger idk
Bergevin has been in danger for several years now and has stuck to his guns. What's very interesting is he started to trend much better when Dudley left and Timmins was named assistant GM.
Does that coincides with the end of the 207-2018 season? I feel like there was a big change in asset management after that disastrous season and after Molson reiterated his trust in Bergevin. I did not follow enough to know if there was more managerial movement but since then I don't think he's traded a single pick away and instead accumulated picks?
Yes, Dudley left for the Canes in May of 2018. I think Timmins is helping out Bergevin a lot and maybe Molson forced him too. Who knows. All I know is the timing fits.... Bergevin started to trend much better after Dudley left.
Look at this video on draft day... Bergevin asking Timmins his opinion a lot! Other fans have noticed this as well.
Ok bergevin will never trade Caufield, he got a diamond in the rough and the last thing he will do is trade the future to save his job. You might not like the guy but you have to give him credit that he never traded a young prospect for a rental.
Truuuue, it was also weird that Molson gave the impression a new GM was in town with "a new plan", like MB was not even there the couple years prior.
I'm just here wanting to accumulate draft picks so we can have a rotating wheel of kids to try in Laval and Montreal and create a cycle of assets coming in and out of the teams continuously.
It's the draft. He'd be stupid not to. And Bergevin has said that he wants to be the one to make decisions, but listens to everyone around him.
Just above 1 PPG and the only player with a minus +/- in the top 40 NCAA scorers.
But then again, I have no idea what rookies usually produce in the NCAA.
his team is bad. Alex Turcotte is a minus nine.
If Montreal trade Caufield i’m no longer a Habs fan. I haven’t been exited a prospect in foreve. He’s a can’t miss prospect to me.
I still remember Noble6 saying he’d no longer be a Habs fan if they traded Galchenyuk and yet ...
We won't trade him so you are safe. If we trade him, we don't know who's coming the other way?
Who is "we"? You're not a member of the Habs management team.
Why do you go there? What's the point? We means the Habs obviously. Stick to the hockey conversation going on please. This is your weekly reminder
Caufield is far from being untouchable. It always depends on who's being offered right? I'd trade him for the right piece with no remorse and Bergevin would do so as well if it meant keeping his job. I have to wonder if he didn't already try those scenarios.
He has stated over and over that he's not mortgaging the future for his job security. He said last year he was offered a prominent player at the deadline for the number one pick. He hung on to it and look at what it got him.
There has been no panic trades, besides he wins most of his trade.
They just need to stay the course and if one thing needs to change it's to have more patience with our good prospects.
Look at Fluery. One full year in the AHL and he is slowly coming along looking so solid out there.
He's having the best 18 year old season in the NCAA I can remember a Hab prospect having outside of Primeau as it's hard to compare forwards and goalies but what Primeau did was just insane. What Caufield is doing is great.
He currently leads the NCAA in points for U-19 players,

If it gets us Lafreniere (in a package deal) then it would be hard to be upset.
Sergachev is a great skater, but at times makes bonehead decisions on the ice.... lacks natural hockey instincts.
Caufield is small, great skater, hard to knock off the puck... tremendous NATURAL goalscorer!!!
I don't think Molson would let Bergevin trade Caufield. Remember that he went to watch one of his games in person earlier this season. When was the last time an owner went to watch a NCAA game of a freshman they just drafted? I think he has high hopes for him.
why do you gotta do a man dirty like that runner
and to be fair, I said I would take an extended break from following the team, which i did, if they did that, and made that notorious statement the summer after he put up 30 goals.
I like him, but I think Bergevin won't hesitate to trade him to try to save his own ass. The Bergevin era has been an utter disaster, but I think the worst is yet to come.
