Maybe I'm a minority here but I'd rather have Sundstrom than Barnaby.

As someone pointed out above we have Begin to fill that particular role. While Barnaby is better in trouble making, the problem with him is he does it little too often. I'd rather have solid hitter with size on my team, than a small guy that yaps and does 'creative' stickwork. If there is any truth to the rumors, he hasnt been exactly a great team player or locker room personality either.

Sunny is little younger. He would be doing more offensively if Habs didnt prefer their youth, playing Hossa and Ryder on offensive lines. While hes not doing much offensively as 4th liner - he could still step up for injury replacement. Another reason to keep him around is because Habs may need players to replace Juneau and/or Dackell next year.

And why should Canadiens help Rangers (or the other way)? They will propably end up fighting for the same playoffs spot anyways. If they absolutely HAVE to ship him out, let it be western team offering the highest pick for him.
