They may be. I can see why. ...but if they're unwilling to trade Hall, Eberle, RNH and MacT wants to make some moves, Perron may be tradeable. Other than that it's Gagner and Yak that I can see as movable pieces. I've no interest in Gagner and Yakupov isn't the high on my list either.
I know Williams is the feel good story, and Doughty would have been the "he's probably the best player in the world at his position" story, but Gaborik deserved the Conn Smythe. He was something else in these playoffs.
You can't give the Conn Smythe to a trade deadline acquisition! That would just drive future prices through the roof!
Reporter: "Weisse says you had something to say to him in the handshake line..."
"That stays on the ice, if he wants to be a baby and make it public that's his business...."
Reporter: "The Canadiens have said that there has been some lack of respect..."
"Lack of respect? What? A goal celebration?" "I don't know what to say about that." "I don't have any comment about that."
"I don't have anything to say about that."
So, he has plenty to say in the handshake line... the freaking handshake line!!! ...to a player that tossed everything that he had to say/give right back in his face, but has nothing to say afterwords. Loves to dish it out, but can't take it.
I don't think you change a damn thing. I think Babcock needs to remind the boys that Game 1 went our way and if we play our game, Game 3 could go the same way. Don't rock the boat. Don't make costly mistakes. Play Game 1 again.
