How about a blockbuster trade with Philly to land Gagne and Carter!
The Habs would have to offer up the likes of Souray, Kostitsyn, Price and three 1st round picks. Perhaps a little more is needed, but Zednik has little value after a poor season but still has talent..... Ribeiro is only worth a draft pick or marginal prospect......Bonk is overpaid!
And then watch him play softer than Ribeiro to make sure that he gets his full pay.
Please, say what you want about Lindros, but I don't think he'd embarrass himself on the ice. I'm not a big fan of him as a person, but as a hockey player he does try when he plays. He'd probably make more from the insurance settlement if his career ended due to injury than he would by reaching the bonus.
