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...
I didn't say WHEN, I want to get some picks for the draft. Habs are missing the playoffs this year IMO but I would like a good shot at maybe a player like Neidereiter in the draft.

If we end up with edmontons 2nd and our 1st falls around 14th/15th maybe that will be enough to trade for a top 10 and have a shot at the kid.

I like this trade because we just have to replace the first letter of Halaks name, thus saving money on a new jersy.
