I think the only way Gainey trades Halak is if he gets top dollar for him, otherwise, keep him as a cheap back up. It would be dumb to trade him just because we have 2 good young goalies.

You can't really say Halak is a "back up goalie", he is just starting his career and has not had prior chances at #1. Smith got Dallas Richards so obviously Halak could have good trade value at one point.
CORRECTION: the package contained Smith AND Jokinen AND Halpern for Richards AND Holmqvist

so basicly its Smith for Holmqvist
Jokinen+Halpern for Richards

So Basicly they just swapped young goalies

Ah and Denis never played in playoffs FYI
