Pierre Gauthier and Bob Gainey should be fired for making this move. At least I would have if I was the owner, terrible move for the Habs and one they will regret forever. Price is terrible. They better have received a great return package in the deal.

Either they're really, really dumb for trading a guy who was awesome in the playoffs, or they're smart enough to know that the butterfly and gigantic pads have diluted the position to the point where goalies are a dime a dozen (check out who was between the pipes for this year's Finals) and trade while his value is at its highest.

Flip a coin.

Wait for the details before crucifying. Halak probably asked for more than his position (seems) to warrant.

Selling high on a guy who played wayyyy above his head in the playoffs?

I really have no idea, since I barely paid attention to the playoffs after the Devils were eliminated, but I would guess that's what you are getting at.

I'm with you, and I have been saying to everyone that the Habs should not give in to Walsh and his ridiculous contract demands that you know were coming. Canadiens don't want to be just another team stuck with a goalie making 5+ million after one good year or playoff run.

Didn't see that coming. Maybe Blues will be in the playoffs next season now :evil:

Who do you think Habs are getting? Oshie? Backes?

MTL made the smart choice moving him while his stock was high. He's no better or worse than a bunch of other goalies out there. Eller is probably more valuable straight up

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.
