While i was thinking about this trade before JUly 1st, I would not be surprised if it was Zednik going the other way. This is all of course assuming that Gainey would have an agreement with Arnott that he would sign and presumably for the rumored 3M a year for 3 years. This is a pure Gainey move, you eliminate a piece that you've been trying to get rid of and bring in one you want, but total will only cost you 1M.
THerefore you still have plenty of room for another scoring forward or a Dman.
Lots of flexibility. That would be genius. Go Gainey Go. Keep busy.
Go HABS GO
