I'd like to have Gionta back, but with a $60 million cap a possibility, and being close to the cap after re signing Zajac, and Clarkson if we can, I don't think we can afford him. If he was in his last year though that would be awesome. I'd expect Montreal would want a forward in a deal for him though. A forward not named Tedenby either.
Gionta is pretty important to the team, I don't see Habs trading him. If you include the playoffs he has scored 77 goals in 200 games with the Habs, that is about 30 goals a season. And with the Habs need of guys that score, moving Gionta might not be wise. Pls the guy is pure clutch, Cammy got all the credit in the 2010 playoffs, but Gionta had 9 goals in 19 games himself.
