The Vachon trade isn't as bad as it looks in isolation, I mean it's not like the Habs didn't have a stud goalie in Dryden, where was Vachon going to play?

I don't get how the Turgeon trade merely comes in at number 9. That was such a franchise crippling move. Trading away an elite center scoring center and a selke-caliber center for a 3rd line grinder was just such a joke of a trade.

The Blues became instant contenders and we became an instant joke.

I'm sure there tons of negotiations.

Just like how the Cammelleri trade negotiations just happened to culminate 24 hours after his comments and during the intermission of a game he was playing in, for a player who was currently suspended.

Even with Dryden should have got more for Vachon.

The McDonagh-for-Gomez trade should rank higher IMO.

Not only is McDonagh a world class defenseman who will be in the running for future Norris Trophies, but the fact that Montreal took back Gomez is a disgrace in itself.

Looking at it today, McDonagh and Subban could potentially form the BEST defense tandem in the NHL, even ahead of Keith-Seabrook. And swap McDonagh from the Rangers to the Canadiens today and there's a good chance we're watching a Kings-Habs repeat of the 1992-93 Cup Finals.

How was Gomez in the league at 12 years old? Think you might have a typo. The trade took place on June 30, 2009.

I'm probably like a few other people on here and expected Le Trade to be at the top of the list, but the Chelios/Savard trade did bring up some good points.
