Gainey in the driver's seat

With Brewer signing today long term today, and Zhitnik just being dealt for Braydon Coburn who by the way is going to be a real good one. Gainey holds all the cards when it comes to D-men. With Rivet, Souray, Markov and to a much lesser extent Ninnima, im sure Bob’s phone is ringing off the hook. Now look at what Philly got for Zhitnik, a very very good prospect. Anaheim got a 1st round pick for Shane O’brien (who I never heard of). Souray and Rivet’s stock just went way up, I think Gainey may not have a choice but to move both of them. With Anaheim moving a D-man they must be looking to add a better one, could it be Souray ??? If it is, I want Ryan Getzlaf in return.

Souray,Perezoghin
To Anaheim
Getzlaf

Rumours floating around is that San Jose is looking more towards Rivet rather that Souray. So if Zhitnik is worth a top level prospect, Rivet is worth as much or more.

Rivet, Ryder
To San Jose
Bernier, Bell

Samsonov
To Chicago
Aucoin

Higgins-Koivu-Kovalev
Bell-Getzlaf-Bernier
Pleckanec-Bonk-Johnson
Latendresse-Lapierre-Begin

Komisarek-Markov
Streit-Aucoin
Dandenault-Bouillion

If Bob moves Souray, he has to go pick up Aucoin to replace his big shot.
