More Trade Rumors

Dave Pagnotta of The Fourth Period says the Habs are the center of more trade rumors. Urgent needs, according to Pagnotta, are a top-six forward and help for the D corps.

While it’s certainly reasonable to assume that Gauthier wants to upgrade the team’s absolutely pitiful blue line, he’d have to shed salary to make it work under the cap. As for top-six forwards, don’t we already have a logjam at that position? Between Gomez, Cammalleri, the Kostitsyns, Plekanec, Pouliot, and Gionta, we already have more than enough scoring punch upfront. If, however, we could acquire a big, physical top-six forward capable of playing effective hockey below the hash marks…

Stop me, I’m dreaming.
