I really think we should keep him, having two great goalies in the payoffs is the way to go. Just wondering what everyone else thinks.

Well of course, it would involve giving up him, and much more, like Higgins, prospects, picks etc.

I would only trade Halak in a package for an impact player or straight up for a quality young player with potential.

My choice would be to keep him, but that's a boring answer so I voted for the 'Top 4 Defenseman' option.

If Gainey can pick up a veteran #4 at the deadline or sooner, it upgrades the defense severely, especially in case of injury. No longer will Hamrlik have to play a defensive role to cover the youthful mistakes of O'Byrne or the occasional blunders of Brisebois. Give him a guy like Brad Stuart or Karlis Skrastins and all of a sudden Guy can use Hammer in either way he sees fit: either let him pick his offensive game up by jumping into the rush, or play a similar role with the added defenseman to form an experienced shutdown pair.

The team has scoring, the team has center depth, and the team has farm depth. Enforcing is not a problem, nor is 4th liner depth. Goaltending depth would be a minor problem, but if Halak is traded to bring in that 4th defenseman, then it's upon Bob to flip an asset to bring in a veteran backup that can hold the fort if Price misses a game or two. Our biggest hole, in my opinion, is a stopgap in the case of injury to one of our top-two pairing defensemen. If one gets injured with that #4 present, then it's a matter of the players moving up a slot and at worst, it becomes a situation where the team has a strong top3 and an inexperienced bottom 3.

Why trade him?

I don't think he has a lot of value... at least, his value on the market doesn't match his skills, I think.

NOTHINK!


How many times will I have to explain it, right now, our depth is the following:

Price
Halak
Denis
Desjardin

Which is pretty solid

now if we remove Halah from the depth Chart we have this:

Price
Denis
Desjardin
Lacasse

And now imagine if Price Gets Hurt, it gives us a depth Chart of:

Denis
Dejardins
Lacasse
Mayers



NO FREAKING WAY

Unless a proposal comes along that makes an absurd amount of sense, I feel a lot more secure knowing we have Halak behind Price especially given the options that follow.

:teaaaaaaaaaaaaaaach:
That last scenario should be enough to scare the **** out of any sane G.M. , I predict Halak will be re-signed as an RFA by Gainey when Halak reaches that point in his career and then moved at some point thereafter .

Funny thing is, he completely demolished the word "basically" and you had to point out the 1 character typo. he made in "nothing".

For this year, a top 4 D no question. We really really need one to make a bigger push in the playoffs.

Longer term, we still need that center but thats nothing new.
