I'd do that dea for the Habs. Unfortunately, Dallas is not run by morons.

Horrible trade for us. Arnott is a floater. I'm hoping we can get a lot more in return for Koivu, and a lot younger and cheaper too. Hossa will not be traded, he's been playing well. Just because he's not scoring is no excuse. Without him, that line fails.

Not likely. From both sides. I don't see Dallas picking up Koivu based on his size.

However, earlier in the pre-season I was hearing stuff about Gainey trying to get Morrow (his son-in-law). I can see something like Ward & a defenseman.

But overall... I don't think it'll happen.

Morrow is Carbonneau's son-in-law!!

I don't see the Habs trading Koivu, but I would absolutely love to see Arnott on the Habs.

A line of:
Ribeiro ----------- Arnott ----------- Zednik
would be amazing!

A lot of posters here feel that Ribeiro can't be moved to the wing but I feel differently. It won't really change his game all that much except for breaking out of the defensive zone. He'll be at the point as opposed to floating around deep in his own end. It may actually help him get an extra step on defenders with his speed somewhat better than it was. He is an extremely creative player so it really shouldn't affect his play too much.
Arnott is better on faceoffs (at this point anyhow) and has the size to go up against the bigger centers of the league.

C'mon,if we were 2-4 or 1-5 would we be putting Koivu in trade rumours or wondering when he would be back in the lineup to pick us up. Get real.

By the way... Dallas' best line thus far has been: Barnes-Arnott-Morrow

I doubt they'll trade two of those guys right now, let alone one.

The Stars would mess their pants if they were able to steal Koivu for a stiff like Arnott, gimme a break. Koivu is cheap for what he brings to the table and in the west, he'd be able to play his game more.

Wasn't Modano moved to the wing this year? I thought I heard that somewhere.

How about Perreault and Hossa for Morrow? Consider that we will save salary and get a top 2 line powerforward

Assuming that Turgeon/Arnott will be traded the above may make more sense

Exactly, I think this is the 3rd proposal including Koivu I`ve read in the last 2 days. Why do we all of a sudden want to deal our captain? I think in the long run were going to need Koivu, a top 6 of Zednik, Bulis, Ribiero, Perreault, Ryder etc etc isn`t going to cut it for the full season no matter how good were playing right now.

I don't expect the Habs to deal Hossa anytime soon... unless they're acquiring a pure offensive weapon. Just wouldn't make sense... he's too young and many have given up on him already. It does take some kids more than a season or two to break out. Give the kid time... his brother always said he was beaten one-on-one by Marcel... let's way for that side to break out.
