He's a RFA, probable 3rd liner, and what did they give up to make this magical thing happen

I mean I'm kinda ambivalent about a move like this as long as they actually didn't give up value

I'm frightened to see what's going back the other way. Hopefully Gomez but I'm not getting my hopes up.

If Komisarek leaves for free agency, they will need a d-man. Rozy? Maybe even Girardi?

I saw this and nearly s**t myself. I've wanted this guy for years. He's got real potential to be a legit goal scorer.

I fear what's going the other way. I've proposed Girardi last year to Montreal fans and they weren't opposed to the idea.

You guys are gonna love him. Just hope it's not Gomez.

Dubinsky please.

Since Komisarek ain't signing with us... maybe Rosival?

He's been a pretty consistent 20+ goal scorer at this level and plays both sides of the puck. Depending on the cost, this could be a smart move.

A 2nd line of Higgins - Dubi - Callahan could be very nice.

I'll wait for some additional confirmation before I sticky this.

Why would they trade Dubinsky for Higgins? would be a weird trade

Higgins is a good player. He's a perfect linemate for Callahan. I'll reserve further judgement until I see what is going back to Poutineland.

in 07-08 it looks like 25 out of his 52 points were power play

hmmm...first impressions are good...just need to find out what we gave up!
