Howson has been talking to Philly. Columbus pretty much has nothing defensively that would interest us, Johansen won't be moved, Carter isn't coming back, so Nash is a logical target.

But we would never trade for Nash as long as Briere is here because of his ridiculous cap hit.

At the same time as Howson is talking to us, Gauthier has been a constant at our games. Danny Briere is from Montreal. He frequently goes back to Montreal. He has said numerous times that it is important to him that his kids learn french. His ex-wife is also from the Montreal area.

Sylvie and Danny have a joint custody agreement. If the entire family were to move to Montreal, there is absolutely no problem there.

Since Danny and Sylvie both seem to love Montreal, it seems like the most logical destination.
It wasn't for no reason that Briere chose Philadelphia over Montreal. French players here are put under a microscope. I was trying to find the quote from Briere at the time that the journalists would probably be going through his garbage. I'd be very surprised if Briere has even a passing interest in coming to the Canadiens.

Oh, and Pittsburgh should deal for Nash and put him on a line with Crosby and Staal.
