It would be far better for us to wait until Getzlaff and Perry are free agents and try to get one of them for our retool.

Of course, if the Winnipeg GM DID lose his mind and ask for our 1st and 2nd in 2013 for Kane, I would throw in Kristo and Thrower just to make sure he didn't wake up before the ink
Bergevin and Cheveldayoff worked together in Chicago,so it's not a stretch for them to come to some kind of trade that's good for both parties.Trading away the Habs 1st and a 2nd pick for 2013 without knowing his draft position isn't a move Bergevin is going to approve though.As you say signing Perry would be a great move when he becomes a UFA next summer.The problem could be the salary cap in that move and until the Agreement is reached GM's won't be signing any huge deals or any deals for that matter so trades are definitely on hold for now.
