Quite honestly, I do not mind letting him play out his contract - it is only for this season. Hamrlik has been a good soldier for Montreal, and was one of Gainey's better UFA signings over the years.......
Point is that while dealing him at the deadline makes sense IF we're out of a playoff spot and a team feels they're one Hamrlik away to bolster their D, it's a moot point and won't do a whole lot for us. More than half of a season done, the guy is UFA after this year, we're not going to have more than a pick, and I'm not talking about 1st round....and we are talking about 2011.....unless Gauthier aims at 2012 and predicts it would be a much better one.
