When will people learn?

First and foremost hockey is a business, a Money business!

UFA's walk because they do not re-sign, granted, however, teams do not get rid of them at the deadline if they are in a playoff drive.
Would the habs have made an estimated 20 million dollars in this year's playoffs if Plekanec had been dealt? I doubt they would have gone as far, so no as long as you have a chance you go for it.
Now ask the Molsons what they would have preferred in the case of pleks - the money or a pick/prospect.
The answer in my humble opinion is an easy one.

Same applies to Souray and others, so give it up its getting old and you're not seeing the game for what it really is, a money business
