He had offers to go play in the Euro leagues, but I assume maybe Gainey offered to trade him where he might have a better shot at an nhl spot or the trade made him think he should stick around.

Back in the 60's and early 70's if you were a Habs fan in Ontario you quite often had to listen to road team coverage. i.e. WBZ Boston, KMOX St Louis, WGR Detroit, WGN Chicago, KDKA Pittsburgh, WCAU Philly, etc

When Chuck Lefley played with the Habs back in the early 70's I was listening to the Chicago coverage. I had to laugh when they kept referring to Montreal fwd Chuck Le Flay. Took a while to figure out who that guy was

Why did we trade Locke?

Corey Locke is on the road to stardom. We didn't give this guy enough time. I always thought he was going to be good.

He's having an awesome season this year and to top it off, the guy scores 4 goals at the allstar game and adds 1 assist.

Why oh why did Gainey lose his patience with Locke? He could be future captain material in the NHL. This guy is a pure scorer, just fantastic hands, great finish..

Gainey

All we get in return is Belle..
Gainey needs to wake up and stop making terrible trades:
1. JN for Ribeiro
2. Locke for Belle

GTFO GAINEY!

Locke has 17 g and 30 assists in 44 games.. He's over a PPG...

Me too.
Like like what Dagenais and Perezhogin are doing overseas.
I am sick of the team I want a team built like the Leafs.

Burke has added such a great piece to the puzzle in Brad May when will Gainey get a legend like that.

It's fans like you we don't need.. There's no problem critiquing moves. That's what a forum is for.


and for the record.. yes this thread was a joke.

If done over a trade where a career minor leaguer is a "future star" you should walk away now.

You are severly over rating Locke, if he was such a star he would have been in the NHL already and would have been in high demand around the NHL...dude, sorry but your way off here.

SAW THIS WAS A JOKE, MODS CAN WE PLEASE GET RID OF THIS CRAP ALREADY?

Please stop making stupid thread people!

Okay you can critique moves that make sense critiquing. If he had those point totals in the NHL you'd have a damn good point. But that made no sense and you had a poor argument. If you wanted to stop being a Habs fan because of a Locke for Belle trade, then you're the one we don't need.

As a Senators fan who watched Corey Locke play throughout his entire 67s career, I love the guy. He was one of my absolute favourite players ever, his skill level and heart were awesome. But I also never expected him to make the NHL as anything but perhaps a a powerplay specialist on a poor team, but even that would be a bit surprising. It's not his size but his skating that I knew would and has held him back. To say he's on the road to stardom (presumably in the NHL) is kind of ridiculous. I am one of his biggest fans, but that would beyond shock me.

Corey Locke

I suppose when Locke was a prospect for us many of us wanted him to do well.

Sometimes things do no work out as you would want them to.

The Management and Bob Gainey (Legendary) are not infallible, they are human, and like all humans, errors can and will be made.

It may be premature to assess the situation as you did, and pass very harsh judgment on Bob Gainey using just 2 of his trades.

While those 2 trades may not seems favourable for us in your eyes, you may not be seeing the bigger picture. What is your assessment of all the other trades that Bob Gainey has done?

As fans it is easy for us to pass judgment from the outside looking in. Bob Gainey has an envious amount of credentials and experience that we can not even begin to imagine. Furthermore he enjoys a wealth of inside knowledge that we hardly ever get access to. Scout reports....,many conversations with people on the inside and the players themselves etc.

I am not questioning Locke's character but pure on ice hockey skills is not the only thing a GM or an organization looks at when completely evaluating a player and his value to your team. It is easy to look at player's x and y statistics and think wow what a point producing machine but there far more to look into that just point production...

In summary...one needs to really look at the BIGGER picture before passing harsh judgment.

For the record.

I think that perhaps many of us would have preferred BETTER return for Ribeiro...general consensus was at the time we were in need of defence....Ninnima in his prime...on top of his game and in form was not a bad player...too bad we mostly saw the worst of him.
Also it is not news but Ribeiro's character constantly was frowned upon by the habs brass itself.

Insofar as Locke for Belle is concerned, I can see why you think it is a win for the wild. However a 5 foot 9 point machine in Junior/AHL is easier to find than a speedy defenceman drafed in the first round. From what I read when Belle has some qualities, like many prospects...aspiring to be NHL players he has to put the tools together...weed out the bad and develop the good...

Locke = 5'9", 168. Nuff said.

The AHL you can get away being a defensive liability. Not in the NHL.
