1) Why do they want Halak? Raycroft was pretty good while Luongo was out, and can be a decent back up when Luongo needs a break for a game or two.

2) Why would we trade Plekanec? He's been one of, if not, the best player for the Canadiens so far this year. I wouldn't want to trade him yet. However, if Gainey senses that Plekanec won't want to resign, or if his value his so high that we won't be able to afford him by the deadline, then maybe we should trade him (if we're not in playoff contention by the deadline).

Right now, I don't believe it, for the reasons I just stated.

rumors? More like "made up bs". It's not a rumor if it's based on absolutely nothing except whatever will get him the most hits to his site.

Personally, I don't know where he gets his information. It could be his dog, it could be a players agent, it could be from reading posts here on HF.

All I know is I would switch places with him in a heart beat, as he seems to be doing pretty well with his website.

That's the wrong question. The initial rumor is, as the title states, that the Canucks want Pleks and Halak. We have no idea what Gainey may have been asking about. In my opinion this whole rumor is probably based on an inquiry Gainey may have made trying to fill a hole. If those are the players that the Canucks threw out for compensation then it had better be a damn good one.

Most of the posters criticizing the rumor because it's Pleks and Halak are looking at it wrong. A lot of the comments are being made that it must be false if because Bob wouldn't trade one of our top scorers right now when in fact the rumor is entirely one sided from Vancouver's point of view. There is no mention that Bob offered those players and therefore no reason to declare it false on that basis.

I can see the Canucks wanting Plekanec but wanting Halak is absolutely ridiculous.

Raycroft is playing well in his back up role outside of a crap effort from him and the team in St. Louis. They also have an outstanding young goalie in Schneider waiting in the wings.

Question.....Why does everyone on this board want to make a trade every week? For God sake we just saw most of our old players go in the off-season, now we should trade all the new guys as well!!!!

Actually, that's what I was thinking to myself as I was reading this all.

Seriously, if people hate the crap that he puts up and don't believe any of the BS he's writing, why the hell are you going to his website? You provide him the traffic he wants but doesn't deserve, and in doing that, you make him a very happy man and are basically telling him "Good job Ek, keep up the great work".

The only Top 2 D I can think of is Bieksa.

So we get Bieksa for Pleks and Halak?

So essentially we are swapping our #1 point producer atm, and our solid starter (Whom needs a #1 spot to continue his career), for a #2 D in Bieksa?

Sounds like a very lopsided move, lateral even, we gain nothing from this.

IMO the habs are desperate for a top line forward with either size or impact ability. Thats what we need, thats what we've always needed and until we get a high draft pick or impact player to compliment cammalleri, thats what we will continue to need.
