Janne Niinimaa on the block, Habs moving ?

Janne Niinimaa is rumored to be on the trading block since he is unable to get a point with the Islanders yet.

The 30 years old defenseman just make 2.4M this year.

The Habs since the beginning of the pre-season is searching for an offensive defenseman. Niinimaa, who was a Bob Gainey target two years ago, is rumored to come to the Habs after the game of saturday night many sources claim.

The Habs are a bit disappointed with the play of Sheldon Souray and a new blueliner on the powerplay could possibly help the Habs to relief all the attention on Sheldon shoulders. Rivet has also be mentionned due to his overpaid contract.
