I don't have any names right now, because I don't know who's hot or not but it could be a good deal.
So you actually agree with me then.
I said Gainey probably wouldn't be trading Halak UNLESS he get's a top 6 winger in return, someone we need to plug a hole. Simply put, I don't think he'd deal Halak for a pick at THIS point but he might in the off season. A pick will only hurt us now while we are in a hunt for a playoff spot, thus it wouldn't make sense right now. Getting a player in return would make sense IF it was to fill a glaring void we currently have, if not then I think Gainey passes.
