Time to move the deadbeats

After watching every Habs game so far this year, I know Guy can not be happy with his line up and hopefully is asking Bob to change it. Watching Samsonov do nothing game after game after game is pissing me off and hopefully Guy also. Two teams that I think we could swing deals with are St.Louis and Vancouver. With Legace out and Tkachuk probably walking at the end of the season offer Samsonov, Aebischer, Murray and maybe throw in a guy like J. Gleed for Tkachuk and J. Mayers. We save $1.1 mill in salary. And then offer Niinamaa, Ryder & Plecanek to Vancouver (who I thing are ready to make a shake up and need a D-man) for B. Morrison & M. Cooke. We save $400,000 in salary and at the end of the day we look like this:

Koivu, Higgins, Latendresse
Morrison, Tkachuk, Kovalev
Bonk. Perezhogin, Johnson
Begin, Cooke, Mayers

this would give us two good scoring lines and two very good defensive lines that could also contribute with some goals.

Our D would stay the same with Striet as our 7,th man & Cote as depth.
Huet & Danis in nets which moves Desjardins up to Hamilton to share time with Halak.
