Yeah right, NYR got a crazy return for an underperforming player on a large contract.
lol people don't understand CBJ is DESPERATE to win. Good for them if Gaborik pans out and performs and produces on the score-sheet. Still reeks of desperation, and happy MTL is staying cool. Trade-deadline is there for desperate teams and teams who have spare assets to overpay. MTL has neither.
I ain't even mad if we don't do any trade.
It's not like we're in a rush.
We've got a great young core who has a lot to learn yet.
I'd rather we become the next franchise who will be at the top for a long time with plenty of good prospects than a one time shot.
And Johan Larsson has first line potential, Matt Hackett has starting goalie potential. Buffalo ahd no need for Pominville right now and their rebuilding plan will like take a couple of years. Great deal for Buffalo.
