You don't trade your best player, period. You certainly don't trade him when you think your back is against the wall. It's the perfect time for an experienced GM to rip you off.
The mistakes of the franchise over the last decade has been overpayments on contracts. And poor trades for all of the wrong reasons.

The Habs have been reduced to signing scrubs like Mara to help with a playoff run. And when Wisniewski was signed, the Habs had to let him go...............................because.......... .......of all of the overinflated contracts that kept the Habs from signing him to a long term contract.

The hand that was dealt by Gainey and Gauthier is a difficult one with undersized players making too much money.
