Briere, 26 in October, $1.6M
future consideration Boulton, 27, $.55M


Komisarek, 21, $1.13M

Why the Sabres do this deal: get a RD, and have Comrie who can replace Briere. Dumping Boulton's contract in favor of Peters.

Why the Habs do this deal: get a frontline offensive player who is young, cheap and French-Canadian. Boulton gives some size.
Horrible, horrible trade for the Habs.

Try to consider both teams needs and wants when putting together a proposal. The last thing the Habs need is another midget center (need i remind you that the Habs currently have Koivu, Perreault, Ribeiro and Juneau down the middle, with Chris Higgins being our best C prospect and he isn't exactly a giant either). A team would have to overpay BIG TIME to get Mike Komisarek out of Montreal.
