Brisebois has carved out a 14-year career, won a Stanley Cup, and at times been very successful, either in scoring (back in the day when he was the only D-man on Montreal worthy of skating on the PP) and defense (in recent years, as in last season, a solid plus-player). The only knock against him is his ridiculous contract.

If Hainsey turns out to be "just another Brisebois" (without the serious overpayment) I would be quite happy. In fact I think Brisebois comes back to Montreal next year. At a reduced salary, of course.

As for the topic of the thread, there's no way Montreal can trade Hainsey. Unless and until they rebuild their defenseman depth. They have no prospects outside of Komisarek and Hainsey that will definitely make the NHL one day.
