HABS: David Aebischer + draft pick for Martin St. Louis ???
According to several reports including the Team 990 in Montreal and La Presse, the Montreal Canadiens are about to pull the trigger on a deal that would send G David Aebischer and a 2nd round draft pick to Tampa Bay for speedy scorer Martin St. Louis.
WHAT DO YOU THIS OF THIS DEAL? GOOD? BAD?
It definately fills in some of the HABS needs for additional scoring, and as many have found out, in the new NHL, size does not matter, therefore St. Louis’s speedy and grit could be a very good acquisition for the HABS. Although his salary would have to be taken into consideration and would somewhat limit the free agents Gainey could go after.
(This trade would also mean the end for Richard Zednik, who could be packaged with other worthless baggage -Ribeiro- for a D-Man or a Big center?)
