I don't know who or how, but going into next season if the centre issue has not been settled then it's already a failure in my books.

I give a pass to Gainey and crew on trade day because they were smart enough to realize this team isn't good enough to be one rental away from a Cup run. No use in wasting important assets on maybe an extra round of playoffs.

The only name of interest out there was Jokinen. We didn't get him, oh well. It would have been nice. That being said, this team cannot go another year without a premiere forward, and more importantly a premiere center. How long has it been since Montreal has actually had an offensive superstar? We were ready to hand the key to the city to Kovalev last year because he put up a PPG... How sad is that?
