We get size and skill in the middle and a franchise defenseman, we call up Chipchura and D'Agostini to fill in the gaps. We also get an instant leadership boost.
The only problem would be Bouwmeester's contract ending next year. The habs could negociate re-signing him for a similar price for the coming years.
note: I don't necessarily want to get rid of these specific players, don't start a flame war. I know alot of people will think I'm crazy, but I think this moves adresses the core problems of leadership and defense.
Horton has not been very impressive so far. Maybe playing in Montreal would light a fire under him but he is a bit of an underachiever.
I'd like to know what the asking price is...but I'm sure Florida is not looking to move Horton after having just traded Jokinen.
