Thanks for dropping a couple of names to emphasize your point. I figured this was just the classic "dump Higgins" mentality we've seen a lot of lately. However, these players make some sense. However, I doubt that either of those trades would go down.

I highly doubt that the Kings would move Jack Johnson as he's a big piece of thier future. The Kings would need to rob us blind to give up on him.

I would rather not see the Habs trade Higgins straight up for Barker. I have seen a ton of the Hawks this year and Barker has offensive promise, but really needs to work on his defensive game. Besides, the Hawks would want a center in return, as that's where their need is. Higgins is terrible at center and the Habs can't afford to give up a centre without getting one back right now (unless that center is Chipchura).
