I agree...and if Brisebois isn't done and playing good hockey with the Habs at 37 years old, Schneider can do the same for sure.

I'm all for it because I think it's the cheapest option. We wouldn't have to give up anything big...probably a prospect and a mid round pick. That's perfect! He wouldn't make miracles with us, but we don't need that anyways. He would give us more depth, more experience, and a real option for our PP.

Now, if the Lecavalier rumor is true, it's another story! But with the price tag of Vinny, there's some good chance that we'll not see him in a Habs uniform this season.

Have you seen his stats from the past few season? He still have gas in the tank...he's just playing for one of the worst team of the NHL.

Schneider would be an excellent option IF:

he wasnt making 5.7 million
had played well all year
there wasnt better and younger options on the market

since none of these qualify, ill pass.

Kypreos also thought Sundin was a lock to sign with his beloved Rangers.

Considering Havelid is 35, has 11 points and is +7 (play the same minutes - 21 per game) doesn't help your case.

Why do people even care about his salary when he's a UFA at the end of the season?!?!?!?

Why do people even care about his salary when we're at the halfway point of the season?!?!?!?!

How many people have actually seen him play this season?!

What a crazy day....So let me get this straight Kypreos is saying that Gainey is now going to deal Higgins for Schneider? Does Kypreos honestly think Gainey would trade Higgins for a UFA to be over the Hill Schneider? Anyway I thought Higgins was part of the package for Vinny? If Gainey trades Higgins for Schneider he deserves a swift kick to the groin area...

Kovalchuk is -13, would you take him?

Two years ago, Koivu was -21..Kovalev -19.
Last Season, Schneider was +22 on a good team, the Ducks. This year, on a team 5pts away from last place in East which also makes them the 3rd worst team in the League.
There's no reason to believe he wouldn't be much more useful on a strong/successful team.
I think he'd do pretty well with Hamrlik, but his cap hit is simply too much.

The +/- is not one you should base your opinion on. So many factors can flaw that Stat.

all mckenzie said is that the habs are talking with the bolts about vinny. McKenzie threw some names out there that are speculated to be involved.

At this point, there is no deal done and we dont even know if vinny wants to leave.

He had a chance to stay in Pittsburg and have Crosby or Malkin as his center. My guess he would have bolted Montreal for Detroit as well. For the short time he was in Pittsburg I'm not sure how much more he contributed than Christianson or Armstrong would have brought to a playoff run. I'm not a fan of giving up a load of good assets for a rental unless you're really, really sure that player is the missing link. Cheap character guys like Recchi at the deadline seem just as effective.

actually that's not true, because in La Presse this morning it has been confirmed the names of the players are real and waiting for Vinny's ok.

I listen to nothing that Kypreos says with any type of seriousness. I think he is the worst hockey commentator on Sportsnet, TSN or the Score. This is the same guy that when the topic of the Senators was being discussed said that if the Sens are having a hard time moving Spezza via trade, put him on waivers and he'd be more appealing to take at half the salary. Riiiiight. Put an elite centre on waivers...get nothing in return...AND pay half of his salary, I think he hit his head on the ice a little harder than most think in that final fight.

I doubt he pulled it right out of his butt though. Kypreos may be a moron but he does have a few sources that have come through for him in the past.

He would be a low-risk high-reward kind of deal. He wouldn't cost very much and could significantly help us.

The worst case scenario is that we wasted a 2nd or 3rd rd draft pick. If this was the only deal left on the table at the deadline, I would hope BG pulls the trigger.

I don't trust montreal media. They get excited and apparently everything's a done deal waiting confirmation, forget it.

Why not for schneider? We'd obviously have to throw money back at them though. Dandenault and a 3rd or something for schneider, they can say what they want, but few teams are gonna break the bank for stats like that, but for us, it's different. He has shown he can be an excellent complementary player on a team, so why not? The trade value is low but salary cap related it's still a decent hit, even halfway through the year. I haven't crunched the #s nor intend to, but I'm sure its possible to fit vinny and schneider, somehow.

to be fair i think La Presse is more reserved in their rumors compared to the JDM.
