That's the thing though... the habs won't have any cap issues next season with gio still on the pay role. Not only that, but Gio is still a 25 goal scoring vet who can play at both ends. Not worth his contract, but by all means he is a valuable top 9 complimentary guy.

No reason for the habs to move him for futures when they are playing like a possible contender now, with him as captain.

People wanting to trade Gio for futures just don't like the fact that the habs have 3 tiny players in the top 6. But if Gio were gone and were replaced with futures, the team would suffer in the short term (pardon the pun).
