This trade proposal would have made more sense about 1 month ago, as the Canadiens were considered as one of the softest teams in the league, if not the softest. Gainey made some clever moves, though, picking up Steve Begin and Darren Langdon at the waiver draft. Both were injured, though, so Habs fans didn't get to realize yet we don't need agitators anymore. When both guys will be added to the line up, it will perhaps make the Habs a scarier team for opponants. I don't mind dealing one of our PK specialists (Dackell, Sundstrom and Juneau), but only if we get fair value in return, and if we get something we are in need of -- agitagors not being one of our current lacks.

Unless the Canadiens management feels Barnaby is a big improvement over Begin, and decides sending him with the Hamilton Bulldogs in the AHL, I can't see this sort of deal happen, by any means.
