I would love to get a 2nd rounder for Gionta and then bring in Perry or Clarkson to replace Gionta. Another step in the right direction in building a difficult to play against team.
I agree. NO WAY is our captain traded while we are this successful. NO WAY. if that is to be done it will be during off season. I still doubt that will happen. I don't think the demand for him is high.
