Yeah, per other Habs fans I wouldn't even consider the OP trade from the Montreal perspective. Actually, I wouldn't even give up a single 2nd rounder for Gagne, let alone two of them. While the Habs do "need" a winger, there are internal options, free agents, and so on at the "Gagne level" that could have been considered, and no need to trade picks.

But on the Bourque/Gagne sidebar, I'd be all over trading Bourque for Gagne. They're both imperfect fits to our need, or at least heavily risk-laden ones, but Gagne has waaaaay less term remaining, so I'd very cheerfully cash out 3 years of commitment to that imperfect fit by taking Gagne instead.
