Gainey interested by Horton & Sharp

http://www.thefourthperiod.com/news/mtl091204.html

I'd rather see Horton than Sharp, even if he's a good player, he's older than Horton, and Horton is bigger than him.

The size isn't really an issue. Horton is bigger, but he doesn't use his size anymore than Sharp.

The age is also kind of a non-issue since both are in UFA contracts (at the end of their terms, both are a UFA).

Horton has 1-more year on his contract than Sharp.

Neither play centre right now and both have similar (if not the same) FO%.

Both players are 1 for 5 in the shootout.

Both players are within 2 seconds in Production Rate (points per minutes played).

Both play just over 1-minute on the PK. Horton has about 1-minute more per game on the PP.

Basically, I'd say the trade off is 1-year/age (Horton) versus leadership (Sharp).

Would be nice but at what cost.

I think we need to stop trading players and start concentrating on developing within.

I'd like Sharp more than Horton. Halak and D'Ago?

I don't know. Markov/Price will need new contracts soon enough, and we'd give some important assets to get those guys back.

I we're out of the picture by the trade deadline and/or the negociations with Plekanec don't look good, I wouldn't mind Plekanec + "Carle/Maxwell/other 2nd tier prospect" for either.

Do not want Horton, would not trade really anything for him he is not what this team needs. What they need is a big centre who uses his size.

I would like to have Versteeg in Mtl.

Right handed
Slick Hands
Very comfortable with medias
Would love the Mtl pressure

He would be a great fit on the team and obviously Chicago wont be able to sign him

The team couldn't use a big body with skill?

I would trade AK for Horton anyday.

I'd rather try getting Ladd from Chicago, he will come a lot cheaper than both these guys.

Getting Barker and Sharp would be a really great x-mas gift

If the Habs are after Horton,then it's pretty safe to think Plekanec would be on his way out

You sure he would come that cheap?I mean the Hawks traded Ruutu to Carolina to get him,not sure we wouldn't give something good,they would probably want Sergei in return

Habs have about 3m to spend next season with BGL & Mara prolly gone, but Plekanec & Price are due raises that will soak up most of that. Habs may or may not re-sign Metro, I guess depends on what kind of money he wants, but he's a pretty valuable part of the team at the moment so it would be tough to see him walk.

I guess Sharp or Horton are possible, but it would most likely involve one of Plekanec or Kostitsyn going the other way, Plekanec doesn't seem likely given his recent play and importance as a top 2 line C. I don't think Chicago would want Andrei since they'd be trading Sharp for salary relief, so only a trade with Florida seems to have any chance.

Would be sweet, but then we'd have a plethora of d.

Pretty silly for Gainey to be looking for help-now players when his team is a seller.

Ruutu was injured all the time when they traded him, Ladds's a RFA and will likely need a raise this summer something Chicago won't be able to afford. He'll be a lot easier to acquire than Sharp.

Ladd's raise still won't be as much as what Sharp or even Versteeg for that matter is making,+the return might even be better for the Hawks if they move a Sharp or Versteeg

As term of proposal for Horton, I could see something like:

Andreï Kostitsyn, Sergei Kostitsyn and Yannick Weber for Nathan Horton and Shawn Matthias.

Weber played for De Boerer with Kitchener...

Nathan Horton is a center and a right winger
