Getting Grier and Bondra on a deal centered around a 1st rounder is something I'd do without blinking.
our rebuilding is nowwhere near the end... the senators are done rebuilding, the lightning are almost done, the habs have 3-5 years left.

adding grier and Bondra adds payroll, not leadership for our prospects. Hossa looses his roster spot, and Grier is not a cornerstone of a franchise

don't get me wrong i would love to have both those players, but not at the expense of what could be the habs highest 1st since Terry frekin' Ryan. Plus Bondra doesn't want to live in Montreal
