well you can't expect us to have a significant trade every year at the deadline. And this only speaks of the last day. i would like to see a list of the deals we pulled of around the deadline (ie last 2 weeks)
I don't really care because personnaly, I don't want Gainey to be a buyer. Best scenario for me would be a swap of players: Habs give UFA D + veterant that is currently injuried for a UFA forward and a D that has no elbow injury.
Therefore, on a short term scale, things get even, but we are sure to rely on an additional D for next season in case negociations with Markov and/or Souray and/or Rivet aren't doing well.
