Gainey should have done a trade when we were winning. Because we knew there were problems in the team but they kept sweaping it under the carpet because we were winning. Big mystake. I can just see in a few months from now looking back saying:"he should have gotten that second centerman" back then.
I think the Habs will make a move... although I don't feel a major trade is warranted, I think Gainey will do something. Being from Philly, I have been hearing some talk about Gainey possibly interested in Forsberg. The Flyers and Habs have been trading partners on many occassions... and with Clarke back with the Flyers and consulting Holmgren, perhaps and deal could go down. Gainey and Clarke are friends I believe. Forsberg would be great on the Habs if he could stay healthy down the stretch.
Given the earliness of the deadline, the paucity of clearly defined "seller" teams by that deadline, and hence the likely ridiculously-high prices that any "dealine rental" style players might therefore cost in the midst of a bidding war, I would be surprised if the Habs made any trades at all the rest of the way. I'm definitely okay with that. What I'd really like to see though would be at least one new contract plunked down a la Koivu last season. Markov being the most likely candidate, presumably.
