Detroit and Montreal 

Post#1 » by Mr Swagtastic » Tue May 29, 2007 12:00 am

Detroit trades: Robert Lang (3 years $9 million)

Montreal trades: Sergei Samsonov

Why for Montreal: They move Sergei out of the East and out of Canada, he's been a distraction for the Habs as of late and causing them to loose focus. Lang provides a solid 2nd line C and vetern exp and grit. He's good for 20-40 each season as well.

Thoughts?

I'd pass on Samsonov. He's overpayed and lacks motivation. Better off with Lang.

Wow I thought it would be the other way around. Detroit knows how to get the most out of their Euro players though and playing with Datsyuk might bring Sergei back into a 25+ goal scorer

Yea, not a big fan XBL. Lang still plays well and Samsonov sure didnt do anything in Montreal. I stick with Robby

ok thanks guys for the response's. Just curious what would it take to get Sergei to Detroit that would be fair value for both teams?

I think Samsonov can still be a effective goal scorer and is very quick. Detroit loves guys like that he would be a good fit imho with Draper and Cleary who are both good defenders.

Honestly, as a Habs fan I'd do this in a heartbeat. Samsonov did nothing but create a distraction in Mtl this past year.

Samsonov definitely needs a change of scenery, but he's already played a boring/defensive/trapping style team in Montreal, the last thing he needs is to go to a MORE boring/defensive/trapping style team in Detroit.

He's an offensive player, he'll thrive on an offensive oriented team (Nashville, Buffalo, Ottawa, etc).

I'd rather have Samsonov, just because hes younger and I think he just needs a change of scenery
