I remember after the first Recchi trade, Bob Clarke said that "to get something, you have to give something".

I believe that Garon still has lots of potential, but he needs experience. He will not get the starting job in Montreal because of Theo's contract, so he becomes expendable, and as other posters mentioned, even before Theo becomes old,we have solid prospects on the way..

Gainey identified a need, and did something about it, unlike past GM's that would trade what little size we had away. I'm happy that Garon will get his chance which he would not have had in MTL.
