What about Gionta?

I think he'd be more effective offensively away from Pleks who faces all the tough assignments. Gio's not up for that at this stage of his career. He's not as bad of a performer as some people on here seem to think. Unfortunately, he's being asked to play top line minutes and he's not a top line performer.
For me he's the new Brisebois. Breezer was asked to be our #1 guy when really he should've been a #3. Gio's being asked to be our #1 RW when really he should be on the 3rd line providing depth offense and contributing to the PK.
I don't see the Habs buying him out, and no way do the Habs ask him for a trade option in-season. I can see MB sitting down with him after the season and saying something about how the Canadiens would like to move forward with their young players etc etc. Then trying to move him at the draft if Gio cooperates and names some places he'd like to go.
