i guess there is no market in today's uncertain hockey future..
come BG go get something for dirt cheap!!!! i think we can part with a second round pick here and there...that seems to be all teams want

what are you waiting for ?
Bondra is pretty much done. He may be able to help Ottawa this year, but Montreal will only be able to contend for the Cup in about three years. By then Bondra will probably have turned to dust. Gainey's shopping list is limited to guys who will still be able to help the team down the road. It would be counter-productive to waste assets on guys who won't be around when we'll need them the most. That 2nd rounder is worth more to the Habs than some old beat-up vet this year.
