as far as gainey speculations have to go i feel almost 100% sure he's going to make a minor trade to address our teams weakness of physicality we've been manhandled too often, and it most certainly is costing us games.

Yeah, what's with that 2nd PP unit? Even with the existing Roster, surely a better combo can be put together for 2 PP lines...or maybe not??

Boy, Gainey is sure hard to read. I wouldn't bet on whether he will make a trade or not. There are just to many pros and cons for each scenario...

Here's an idea....

Why don't we call up Ron Hainsey and see what he can do??

Because Hainsey hasn't played NHL caliber hockey when he was called up. I understand your obsession with the youth movement, and trust me, I'm all for it too, but you have to do it right, and that is by letting players mature in the minors, and then let them play when they are ready.

I don't think Gainey would trade for a veteran defenseman, because our habs are not Cup contenders yet, and loading up for a playoff run would make no sense for the team. I can see him however, acquiring a heavy hitting defenseman under 30. Denis Gauthier is one I am thinking of, but I think the asking price will be high. We should NOT compromise our future in a trade. If Gauthier can come at the price of Perreault, like was reported this year, I think BG should and will do it.

If we could get Gonchar like NY got Jagr for the price they paid, I would most certainly go for it. Gonchar is an elite player that would certainly help the team on defence and offence. Whether it's Gonchar or not, a trade is going to happen.

If by that you mean a player off the roster, who do you suggest to trade for Gonchar? We have no one to trade that wouldn't cause a significant gap. Well there is always Brisebois, but there is no way the Caps would do that.

Garon has no value for Washington, they already have Charpentier and Ouellet (or is it ouellette?)

2 things to remember:

Gonchar isn't signed to an insane long term deal making 11 million per year.

Gonchar isn't a coach killer like Jagr is.


No way Gonchar goes for only an Anson Carter. He'll command a huge ransom in prospects and picks.

In addition to reports indicating the Montreal Canadiens are looking for a big winger, the latest has the Habs searching for defensive help.
With All-Star defenseman Sheldon Souray out for at least a month, the Montreal Gazette suggests general manager Bob Gainey could be shopping for a blueliner.

Bringing in an experienced defenseman would send a message to the players that the Canadiens are determined to do what it takes to win, says the Gazette.



According to the newspaper, the Canadiens would be looking for a top-two defenseman, but there aren’t many of those around. The Canadiens will be searching in a pool that includes Chicago’s Bryan Berard, Columbus’ Luke Richardson, Washington’s Sergei Gonchar and Carolina’s Sean Hill, a former Hab.

thats from TFP

and i also heard that huselius has asked for a trade and i think we should go after him and take out dagenais and put him with ribero and zednick...that would be great

Hainsey played NHL caliber hockey , he's only have made rookies mistake . It takes time to develop D-Mans just look at Souray & Markov .

you're wrong about him ; he's doing to fancy play , is playing a risky game and is not good to fight for the puck along the bord.to be good in the offensive part of the game don't mean everything about his play

That was kind of the entire point of my post, but thanks for agreeing with me. All I was saying is Hainsey is not ready yet, and we should call him up when he is ready.
