We need a big trade to land a first line player... And not just a rental. You can't tell me that trading chips like Perezhogin, Chipchura, Price/Halak, Ryder, and a high draft pick can't somehow be packaged in some combination to land an impact player who isn't in his 30's yet.
Montreal needs 3 first line forwards........cause right now, Kouivu, Kovy, Higgins and the like are no better then 2nd liners on most teams.
