As a Habs fan, I do think that Montreal wins the deal.

That said, I understand (but don't necessarily agree with) the Habs fans who say they wouldn't do the deal. Montreal has a pretty good group of young scoring foward prospects and not so many defensemen. Trading away Komisarek would only exacerbate that. I suppose that Montreal could then turn around and trade one of their foward prospects for a young defenseman/defense prospect, but I'm not sure it's worth it.

That said, I like Gaborik a lot, and if such a deal could be swung, I'd probably do it and then worry about the young defensemen problem later. But like I said, I can certainly understand others not wanting to do that.
