Read on another board, that BG may be looking at Keith Yandle from Phoenix...good puck mover...the price could be Latendresse. A rumour from another board, maybe speculation, don't shoot the messenger...
I'm pretty sure Gainey wouldn't trade Latendresse for Yandle.
Yandle's not bad, he'd be worth at least as much as Latendresse is, I think.
Yeah. I think we'd actually win that trade straight up. My issue with it is the redundancies of it. We're acquiring an asset of which we already have several (being a mobile left handed pass-first defenseman without a shot) while giving up an asset of the type we have few (Lats being a big-bodied, good forechecking forward who can crash the crease). Add to it that Yandle isn't a huge presence on the PP (at least, not for Phoenix) and I don't see the point.
It doesn't make any sense. To me, at least.
edit: And we can add to the above that Yandle is on a cold streak (9 games without a point), while Latendresse is very effective at the moment.

Eklund said he heard from several sources that the Wild are really trying to pull off a major deal tonight before midnight and that it may involve the Habs, i also read from someone else there that Gaborik was pulled off the ice because of some "discomfort"
If we trade for Gaborik, I will never watch another Habs game EVER!!!!
Gaborik might never play another season in the NHL for all we know at this point. He may have surgery and never completely recover from it....so why bother with him at all.
I'd say If there is a deal made between Montreal and Minnesota, it will be the Habs getting a top 4 defencemen in return for Higgins and some prospects.....but since everything out of Eklunds mouth is pure bull****....I'm not going to even think about it.
When Eklund gets even 1 deal right, then I might consider listening to what he has to say, but he hasn't gotten one right in 4 years!!!
I am not sure, but I don't think Eklund has EVER gotten any Habs news right...he leaks stuff, but it never seems to come to fruition...as many have said before, if he wants traffic on his site, he posts Habs news, and there goes the neighborhood...
