Hainsey
Dykhuis
Beachemin

That's 10 D (7 NHL and 3 AHL but NHL ready guys), and the proposed deal is Perreault for Gauthier that would give us another Dman and leaving us with Kilger whom I think is even less valuable to the Habs than Yannick. At least Yanny can score once in awhile and is very valuable in faceoffs. With Kilger you don't know what guy is going to show up, most of the time its the under achiever.

We need some top 2 line scoring for Ribs, Zed, Saku and Ryder to play with first.
When a team has an opportunity to pick up a decent physical defenseman, IMO you take that no matter where your greatest need is. If you trade only by needs you will miss out on a lot of good opportunities. If you feel it makes the team better, do the deal regardless of what position you are lacking at.
