    smart move by Halak.  montreal could either lose him for nothing or for a draft pick.  he could leave for europe even if he is traded.

    What an idiot, 15 games does not make you a superstar, and demanding a trade only lowers your value. Way to go Halak, you dipshit. You would have gotten your chance again with the big club, but you and your moron agent weren’t smart enough to realize that. Thank God Gainey resigned Danis!

    RSL has no salary restrictions, so these rookies can get plenty more that the 850K league max. montreal and russians….

    First of all the media is not a source to confirm rumors.
    Second why would he leave for only 150 000 more than working here and to lose the trust of NHL GM's?

    I say punish him by, sending him to Toronto for Sundin.

    Cheap tactic.

    I lost all respect for Halak. He is simply trying to force Montreal’s hand in dealing him…at a lesser value now. Bravo.

    He saw Perezhogin and Emelin do it…so why not him? He plays 16 games and thinks he’s a #1 goalie in the NHL? Yeah right. Halak is too small at 5’11” and he needs to polish up his style to play regularly in the NHL.

    Gainey needs to trade him and get something in return…maybe a 2nd rounder or some mid-level prospect.

    Halak isnt making what his NHL contract states. Hes in the AHL, so hes only making somewhere around 50k this year. He could be making close to a million in russia. Also, hes been practically branded at best the back up in montreal with Price running with it. Im sure Halak just wants the opportunity to be a #1 somewhere.

    Halak probably stands a better chance of getting laid.
