If that offer was on the table and Gainey didn't take it I'd demand his resignation!
Barker is a serious dman and would definately fit that role. Also, just imagine the line up once Markov comes back, sick!
I think he was alluding to the fact that Chicago will have some issues keeping their rfa's at season's end and might be willing to move a player for less than market value. Also, due to the immense expectations to win the cup this year, putting all your eggs in Huet's basket might be a major pitfall. After today's game I would agree. He's a typical flash in the pan montreal goaltender. How many of them have we seen? Garon, Hackett, Theodore.
