We will see what happens but it strikes me as a move made between two teams in panic mode, one of which is unwilling to fire it's coach and GM

Montreal would love to unload a lot of their garbage on the Blue Jackets.

Scott Gomez (@$7.3m with 2 yrs left) might be the most overpaid and useless player in hockey. Michael Cammalleri (@$6m with 2yrs left) plays as soft as a baby's bottom and hasn't been producing. Brian Gianta (another $5/6 m player) has shown very little this season. He is the Captain and moving him would definitely be an eye-raiser.

Montreal would love to move any or all of these guys. Forwards with some value to the Blue Jackets with whom Montreal might part would be Andrei Kostitsyn and David Desharnais (a pint-sized former Cincinnati Cyclone).

The Canadiens are not going to move Subban-he's their future potential defensive gem. However, they'd love to give you Kaberle (softee making $4m with 2yrs left) or Campoli or Gill.

Any movement between the two teams will probably be nothing more than "If you take my problems, then I'll take yours". However, given how poorly both of these teams have performed this season, it's possible that a real blockbuster involving "untouchables" could occur. Both GMs are in desperation modes to hold on to their jobs, so a possible trade could go far beyond a simple garbage out/garbage in transaction.

One Jacket who would likely be part of any major deal would be the "Wiz". His run with Montreal wasn't all that bad and the fans seem to idealize his tenure there.

Remember that the Jackets have no cap room when looking at all of those players you would like to dump off.

I could see a shake up trade between MTL and Columbus. Perhaps...

Gorges pending UFA
Weber

for

Vermette
one of Clitsome/Johnson/Martinek

So two of the worst teams in the NHL are willing to be trade partners? Let me see if I understand:

If two teams are willing to trade each other's garbage, what will the other team get? Garbage in return.

No reason to get excited

I'm not buying it. Terrible trading partners, unless we're unloading for picks. (or Subban, and that ain't gonna happen)

Care to explain? Vermette is overpaid and useless on this team. If we get Gorges and throw a nice number at him, he might stay. Not to mention we get rid of dead weight in Clitsome/Johnson/Martinek. Plus we have a shot at a possible pretty good dman who has a cannon. But obviously we shouldnt do this because....?

This guy was debunked on the mains over a year ago. Rumors are worthless when they come from anonymous sources.

While I do agree with your statement, but if you give your sources out on a public site like this, soon you wont be getting any nuggets.

I remember when Doug Weight was being traded to Columbus right after the Christmas trading break.

Vermette is not useless he is better the third line center than Letestu or especially Brassard and he can play a wing. He can play PK, when it needs PP too, he can win FO, only right use this playerGeorges is UFA where is written that he would resign?

I would trade Brassard he is useless!!! He can play a center - a playmaker. He isnt good in the defesne as the number Vermette-Letestu, he cannot play a wing... only in the TOP 6 wher we have better centers only our coach must find courage to stay Johansen there.

Yeah. I've got a pretty good theory about snarky internet personalities and overcompensation. But it's just a theory and I'm sure you wouldn't be interested.

I don't understand how Columbus and Montreal could be trade partners for a deal of any significance at all.

Lee, agreed. The Habs are up against the cap, so it would have to be money for money. And the "money" they'd like to get rid of is not appealing, even to the worst team in the league (at least I hope so.)

Yep at 3.75 million making backward passes to no one and completely not scoring all while only playing on the 3rd line. Yep, useless.

It really is sad looking at the scoring on this team. The +/- is atrocious! Jake has 2 less points then Nash.

So would a trade between these two clubs be like rearranging deck chairs between two Titanics?
