Didn't read the OP. So this is a Kypreos rumour, that explains it.

Well as a Leaf fan, I'm not surprised you don't know what a smart GM actually is.

I have mixed feelings about the possibility of seeing Schneider in a Habs' uniform to finish the season. He had a great year last year but he's truly struggling this season. Is it due to the fact that he's playing on an awful team or is it that age is finally catching up to him? His cap hit is his cap hit. We'd only be going after one player anyway so at the end of the season, it's irrelevant if we use it all or not.

Obviously there are better options out there like Kaberle and Bouwmeester, but Havelid is definitely alot cheaper(both salary wise and in his potential return), a UFA, and is a solid player. I have heard rave reviews about his shot blocking, which is a HUGE focal point of Carbonneau's defensive scheme. I have to admit, him playing in smaller markets like Atlanta and Anahiem, and him also being a late bloomer somewhat IIRC, I haven't been able to get a total feel for the type of game he plays. But he is definitely very intruiging IMO as a potential trading target for Montreal near or at the deadline.

Could you share some more qualities he displays and what kind of player he is?

Well, not exactly "free"... Now he's roughly half-price.

Schneider would help the power play a bit, but be a detriment in almost every other way. There's also the matter of cap space. And why would the Habs move Higgins for a 39yr old UFA? Try again, Kipper.

***** it. Schneider is not an offensive defenseman anymore.

Rather stay with the actual team than getting Schneider.

Breezer can do the job.

This is a hope that Montreal trades higgins for a washed up d-man. The Canadien fans weren't willing to give up Higgins for a all-star d-man(Kaberle). I hope you overpay to the max.

hey maybe the nhl scouts of the habs really sucks and thinks schneider is still good, higgins for schneidder would be a ribeiro -ninimma part II.. but i think gainey learned from that

i wish we could get jay boumeester at the deadline, tho the asking price will be high, the habs can afford it and they really need help at D.

To add some fuel...

Atlanta picked up depth D Brett Skinner yesterday.

Funny enough Schneider missed the morning skate for Atlanta this morning.

Something in the works or is it all coincidence?

The Thrashers official site blogger says that Schneider's allowed to have optional practices whenever he needs them.

Still, Atlanta is preparing to move him. There's no way on earth they resign him for next season, and there's no way on earth that they make the playoffs.

And Higgins is out of service now...

Silent leader type, never takes a shift off, has had a huge impact on Toby Enstrom, has consistently led the team (and top 10 in the league) in blocked shots since he has been here, comfortable with the puck, has a decent slapper but shoots for rebounds/deflections instead of trying to paint the corners... Also I've only seen Toby have to face 1 or 2 odd-man rushes in his career and I'm pretty sure it was when the pairings got shuffled.

In summary,

Offense: 6/10
Defense: 8/10
Endurance/Durability: 9/10

Honestly the guy is probably one of the best kept secrets in the southeast simply for how consistent he is. He's like a smaller Volchenkov with more offensive ability.
