Lecavalier was not someone the Habs were trying desperately to "land". The situation suddenly and unexpectedly came up, some overtures were made, the Bolts fumbled the file a few times, and it's over.

The target to land was Sundin.

Plan B was Robert Lang.

He's big.

He plays in the middle.

He grins a lot.

His nickname could even be Malcolm.

We don't need another guy in the middle.

As for the D, which is our real need:
Kaberle would be a decent puck mover at a high-middling salary; Kubina might be more of a shooter and harder hitter, though more expensive.

I would send a very good prospect or two for either of them, a bit less quality for Kubina.

Any ideas?
