That is why I would wish Gainey would try to make moves to acquire two of those pieces. One soon and the other... say around June 23rd?

And that is what the ever rebuilding Flames teams thought would happen, or the Florida Panthers, or Edmonton who continually has remained a marginal team because of having to trade veteran top players. The difference is, they have to because of money, Montreal doesn't.

So you want Montreal to get a "future" first line player in the likes of Nash, Heatley and Kovalchuk. As you know every team in the league is trying to unload these types of players, and willing to give up the first overall pick to boot.
