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.
agree with everything, except saying that Hainsey is a prospect that will *definitely* make the NHL one day... he could.. definitely has the potential... but I don't think he's at that level where he's a sure thing to make the NHL yet.
