Why do that deal right now? The Habs can do that deal at the draft or in the summer...

The Oilers look to be gunning for the top pick in this years draft and the Habs still have playoff aspirations...Halak helps the Habs in regards to a playoff push and getting a 2nd round pick isn't much help right now...Trading for Halak probably hurts the Oilers chances for the top pick this year..He as stolen games for the Habs and he would probably do the same for the Oilers...

If a 2nd round pick is all Gainey can get for Halak he is better off waiting until after the season instead of doing it right now IMO...
