Samsonov for sure has not been performing to the expections he was suppose to, and going goaless for so long is definitly not helping his cause. But then again, the entire 2nd line has been an engima for a while. Plekanec just doesn't seem ready, and it really looks like Kovalev's knee is getting to him more then he is letting on.
I wouldn't say Aebisher is on the trade block yet, although I'm sure that is one of the pieces Gainey wouldn't mind moving, the other being one of our defenceman (the obvious choice being Ninnimaa, but he is also the hardest to move).
But we ain't doing that bad yet, and if any trades coming they will becoming in the New Year at the earliest.]]>
