That trade is Gainey's legacy in Montreal.
Higgins has made solid contribution as a third line LW on a Stanley Cup contender.
Without that trade this theoretically could be the our lineup today:
Patches ---- DD--- Cole
Bourque. --- Pleky--- Gionta
Moen ---- White ---- Prust
Higgins also had good chemistry with Pleky when started in Hamilton together.
Subban --- McDo
Gainey/Gauthier era = Rejean Houle era
Both Gionta and Camalleri credited Gomez for enticing them to sign here. We'll never know how big of a factor he played in those signings, but we can't say with certainty that they would have signed here had we not acquired him.
The biggest loss in that trade is McDonagh, he'd be our best D.
