Gainey could have set-up a TB dynasty.

This must have been right before the Gomez move in June 2009.

Would've been by far the worst trade of all-time for the Habs.

I say we dodged more than a bullet here. We dodged a freakin nuke.

That would be worse than the Gomez trade

With that report about the Lecavalier package, it looks more and more like the Canadiens didn't really dislike McDonagh...they just really were desperate for a "first line" centre. Unfortunately, they thought Gomez was one.

Per Jeff Marek's twitter.

He better be exaggerating.

Surely, BG couldn't have been that stupid (no disrespect intended). My god that would have been awful. I was always under the impression Gorges, Plekanec and Higgins were involved?

I think the two owners were split on the matter and one of them vetoed the trade

I call BS! Lawton is a well documented narcissist! Trying to glorify himself. No way Gainey makes that deal, despite what people think of him

Yeah that was rumor, and not because we were getting robbed. It was because TB was not in a position to be dealing a franchise icon or something.

Back in 2009:

Subban was ''just a prospect''...you know, like how many people here want to now deal Beaulieu for Pominville, as an example.

Pacioretty was a 1st year pro who had struggled scoring goals in the NHL and AHL.

Price had a rocky 2nd half of his 2nd season.

Be careful what you wish for folks.

Plekanec, Higgins, Gorges, Subban and a 1st (or 2) was the rumor in January 2009. Gainey even said at the end of that season that it was ''disgraceful'' for those players to read their names in trade rumors.

http://www.tsn.ca/columnists/bob_mckenzie/?id=262987

Quote:
What the deal might end up being is anybody's guess, but sources in Montreal say the actual offer the Canadiens have put on the table for Lecavalier does NOT include defenceman Mike Komisarek, nor is it likely to, but would see Tomas Plekanec, Chris Higgins, prospect P.K. Subban, Josh Gorges and a package of draft picks including more than one first-round pick going to Tampa.
This ridiculous package had to have been in the summer of 2009 before the Gomez trade.

Praise Bob Gainey for not going through with the deal. One of the best GMs this franchise has ever had.
