Top 6 Forward is named GIONTA.
It's not because there's injuries that we have to go out and get anybody.
Patience, Gionta will be back.
Should we trade Halak after because we need a top 2 D with Hammer out?..
We're not going to trade Halak nor Price. We need both and if we keep allowing 50shots a game, we ABSOLUTELY need both.
Also, if you trade Halak or Price, we still need a decent veteran back up. There's no way neither one will fetch us a top 6 Forward + Decent Veteran back up. They are still unproven.
If Halak keeps playing as he has, his value will just increase and since he's a RFA we'll still be able to trade him next summer if needed.
Also, having both Goalies as RFA might help negotiate with them as we'll for sure have a solid Plan B.
If Price asks for the motherload, we can trade him, get a decent return and sign Halak to a more reasonable contract.
It baffles me though to see how anybody here or in the media talking about trading either one.
Our most effective players so far this year have been Plek-Price-Halak. Trading any of them would make us weaker.
Price has a poor performance, Halak steps in and steals the show.
Price gets the net after a weaker Halak performance, he bounces back beautifully.
We will trade one either at the deadline if we can get a return that would make our team instantly better. If not, it'll go to the summer.
