Unless the Habs are offered the world, unless management is very very certain that the locker-room wouldn't suffer, unless the team that we would not lose the great leadership we so clearly have now, you don't trade Gionta. Simple as that.
Besides, as some have already said, he had surgery on his shooting arm last year and did not play during the lockout, Gionta could very well return to the 25 goal-scoring Gionta again.
We should be concerned, but the goal should be to find ways to help the captain of the East-leading team return to form, instead of trying to find ways to run him out of town for goodness sakes. I suspect that the wise Therrien recognizes the former, that's why he put him in the shoot-out, to give him confidence.
Only sometimes does someone say something that makes sense on these boards.
Give Gionta a break. The guy is the captain, he is well balanced as a person. A good guy. Let him leave the team with dignity when the time comes.
He probably felt like **** after the shoot-out attempt. Don't **** on him more.
