Bob Gainey looking forward to be a buyer, instead of a seller, etc, etc.

The Montreal Canadiens, in desperate situation, are negotiating with western teams, like San Jose Sharks and Anheim Ducks, to sell Sheldon Souray to them for prospects, draft picks, and 1 centremen, according to http://spectorshockey.tripod.com/spectors_trade_rumours.html.

Nevertheless, Anaheim had rejected the offer to give out Bobby Ryan and 1 round draft picks to the Montreal, who are very frustrated, and now are trying to deal Sheldon with the Sharks.

The San Jose Sharks are offering Joe Pavelski and a first round pick.

What I Believe: I think that the offer San JOse has given to Montreal wont be helping the Habs either because since Sheldon is the number one goal scorer on that lowly team, and the 1 rounders would be terrifyingly too high, almost near the 2nd rounders.

What do you guys think??

    You know, I'd be thrilled if Souray could be dealt. That's mostly because I don't think the Habs are getting very far in the playoffs, and I'd think this might be good for Souray.

    It'd be great to see him make a run for the cup, and we'd be getting something instead of watching him walk away this summer. And if he IS traded, there's nothing saying he won't want to sign here this summer. He stated in an interview though he misses his daughter (she lives on the west coast) he enjoys playing in Montreal. Guess it depends on how much he wants.

    Now, if Souray is moved to either team, they are 5th and 6th in the standings right now, so either trade would bring in about the same value in regards to the draft pick. It's mostly based on the value of the prospects.
