If both Price and Halak aren't signed, Gainey could use one againt the other while negociating deals for them. If he trades Halak and Price isn't signed, Price's agent can ask for more money considering they don't have a suitable replacement in the organization and would have to spend assets or additional money to secure one.

So unless Gainey get's a remarkable deal for Halak, I don't think he will trade him before the deadline. It's not like he has to anyways as Halak and Price are RFA's.
You and NHLCrazy are gonna be blowing minds with all this proper logic today. If both of your posts were on my Facebook page, I would certainly be clicking: "Arrr... this be pleasin' to me eye."
