He should just combine the #5 and #7 and take Gill's 75

Good luck Hal, I'm sure you'll get further in the PO than we will. Let's see if our PK falls apart or if the guys learned something watching, he'll be missed that's for sure, especially in the room. Too much Kaberle and Ccccccccccccccccampoli, scares me.

PG actually might know a thing or two about bargaining, that's some good trading. Mini-Boomer might not be like his grandpa, but the name sure fits. #55, it should be or someone in marketing is sleeping on the job.

From Hockey's future: http://www.hockeysfuture.com/prospect/blake_geoffrion

Geoffrion is an excellent two-way forward that combines of size, power and energy. He thrives on the physical side of the game and can often be found delivering some very solid checks. Geoffrion is an outstanding skater with good agility, and power in his strides. He possesses very good hockey sense and on-ice vision. He utilizes his 6’2 frame quite effectively, particularly along the boards and in one-on-one situations. He is sound defensively as well. He’ll drive to the net hard and shown a willingness to go into the difficult areas to make the play. Geoffrion possesses a very hard shot and can get pucks to the net.

I know he has struggled this year, but I believe he will slot nicely into our 3rd line in the near future

yeah, I think people really need to calm down on Geoffrion. Hes 24 and only has 9 pts in 20 games in the ahl this year. Probably a future third liner if he ever earns a solid nhl spot.

Geoffrion is a solid addition. He is a guy with size that will use it and can chip in the odd goal. He may never be a top 6 guy but could be a high end 3rd line guy that is solid both ways and strong in 1 on 1 situations. He was a scorer in college at Wisconsin with 40 GP 28-22-50 but so far has only shown flashes in the pros.

He didnt bring alot on the ice besides the PK but was huge in the room, so he will be really missed.

@CanadiensMTL: Canadiens acquire B. Geoffrion, R. Slaney, and 2nd round pick in 2012 from NSH for H. Gill and a con 5th round pick in '13

Awesome?
Those that say we can't get a first rounder for Kostitsyn have to be eating crow pretty soon. A 2nd and Geoffrion for Gill - Kostitsyn definitely fetch a first

The way I see it:

Gill for a 2nd round pick
Geoffrion & Slaney for a 5th (maybe)

That's a very good deal but i wouldn't expect anything from Slaney and Geoffrion. Blake turned 24 two weeks ago and is still having trouble sticking in the NHL. Sure, he has Boom Boom's name but that won't win you games.

If Geoffrion turns into a good NHLer then this trade goes from very good to excellent.

Love the trade and perhaps the best news is that we are not going to try and make a playoff push.

WE ARE SELLERS!!!!

Geoffrion was close to his grandfather, and was the last person "Boom Boom" spoke to before his death in 2006. Geoffrion wears #5 in his honor, while his teammates have nicknamed him "Boomer", after his grandfather.
This guy will get MASSIVE chills walking through habs dressing room and arena.

He can't take 57. That belongs to Gomez.

The good thing is...Geoffrion is very much a low risk high return...he probably isn't as good as the player that scored a hat trick and had like 6 points in 8 games to start his career, but he is probably better than his play this year. With the conditionnal pick we get basically 11 months to decide if he is an NHLer, if not we make sure he plays less than 40 games and keep our 5th.

i'm not saying he'll become a superstar but have you even bothered looking at his career path?

this is only his second professional season ahl/nhl. He chose to finish playing in college first.

lets give him a chance to develop.

Also making me happy is the fact that with Geoffrion able to play in the NHL now, and the flurry of depth ahl acquisition, seems clear that there is a big "for sale" sign on our UFA forwards, which is what we need to do. (Especially in this sellers' market !)

Next 10 days should be interresting ! Go PG !!!

Very nice trade, I wonder where the haters are right now. Geoffrion is a wildcard but you never know.

Best part about this trade was seeing Nashville and not seeing A. KOSTITSYN's name in the same sentence.

And people on the mainboard said the Habs wouldn't get a 2nd back for Gill.. Well guess what?

Sad to see Gill go but very nice trade for the Habs..
