First off, we need Garon for insurance incase Theo was to get hurt. Fichaud is in the AHL for a reason and so is Damphousse, they are depth goalies in the system until kids like Michaud and when Halak or Puurula come over. There is no interest in the Habs mangement to have them as a #2 on the habs team.

2ndly, Garon hasn not proven or played enough to bring an offesive player or players to our team. he is a good goalie, but he is still unproven in the eyes of NHL management higher ups.

You don't trade an asset you need yourself.

The Theodore-Garon tandem is probably the best tandem of netminders we have had together in Montreal since Roy-Hayward in the 80's. They were Jennings trophy winners (best GAA) many times and Hayward could have been #1 on many teams but he got his 25-30 games and respected and liked his role which Garon will probably get next season. When Hayward left the Habs his success wasn't as great, I would fear the same fate for an inexperienced Garon.
