    Why would they give up their top prospect?

    Well, Zherdev if definitely Columbus’ top graduate, so it seems to make sense : 1st draft pick for another 1st draft pick. What I don’t understand is why they would give up Sheldon Souray and get no D-man in return. If that’s what MacLean’s asking for Zherdev, it’s too much. I don’t see that trade, in it’s present state, happening at all.

    i think bob gainey would bw taken to the cleaners if he does this deal!!!! it’s a bad deal!!! don’t do it bob!! look for other moves/trades like m.st.louis for aebischer and sign arnott and kubina for just money then trade ribiero and zednik to the blues for draft picks next year! zherdev is over rated! he didn’t come alive until nash was healthy! we have these type of players already don’t need anymore! also gainey go get pronger from edmonton! we have more than toronto to give up!ex:higgins and souray this deal makes more sense!

    I haven’t seen that rumor reported anywhere else….but again, usually Gainey never shows his cards.

    Other Habs rumours from RDS:

    – Shannahan has the Habs on his “short list” of possible destination

    -Gainey is set to make an offer to Elias (He is asking close to the max = 8.8 mil), I assume at least 20 GM’s will be making a pitch at him….

    I am curious to see how much Elias will get, someone will be stupid enough to throw over 8 mil at him. I don’t see Gainey offering that much, probably around 6-6.5 mil but I doubt it will be enough to bring him to MTL.

    Shanny……..Well I see him either stay with the Wings or play a couple years with the Leafs, Shanny may have MTL on his short list but it doesn’t mean Gainey is interested, eventhough I really like Shanny.
