If your poll was meant to ask which Right D-man could be traded, then you forgot Brisebois. Here are some reasons why each D-man could be traded:

Komisarek - Could be traded because management is either crazy, or about to trade him for a GREAT player.

Rivet - Not a fan-favorite, especially amongst francophones, he has not been playing up to expectations this season, despite a good improvement in the past couple of games. However, Habs seem to want to keep him because he somehow is a part of future plans... or is he?

Brisebois - He is playing great (but not 4 m$ great) this year, and his value has increased dramatically over last year. Which could be interesting, seeing as how last year he was still worth Tverdovsky, according to NJ. Of course, if Habs want to obtain something good in return, they will have to eat up some salary.

Quintal - In his last year in Montréal, probably. Will management try to trade him for a pick to a cup contender or young playoff team looking for a fairly solid veteran leader on D? Or will they wait until the end of the year and simply not renew his contract?

The question is not simply who will get traded, but rather when? I personally would like to see Komisaurus in the line-up every game. I would prefer to see Quintal leave, and hope to see Hainsey win back the 3rd spot on left D before the end of the season. Maybe a Quintal trade could have Rivet regaining some confidence?

Markov - Brisebois..........Markov - Rivet
Souray - Komisarek..OR...Souray - Komisarek
Hainsey - Rivet..............Hainsey - Brisebois
