Trade Deadline Speculation

Around this point of the season, hockey fans start to wonder what their favourite team is going to look like as it heads into the playoffs, or if the playoffs aren't a realistic possibility, what their team will look like in October. A lot of this speculation has to do with the imminence of the "trade deadline" and rightly so as front offices are deciding whether or not they are "buyers" or "sellers", "tinkerers" or "mad scientists". This year our beloved Canadiens are almost certainly out of the playoff picture and they have already placed themselves in the "sellers" camp by trading Hal Gill for Blake Geoffrion and a pick. We do not yet know if management will try to "blow up" the team or if it will simply look to get rid of the contracts that are easiest to get rid of and pick up whatever scraps of prospect talent or draft picks that play-off bound teams deem expendable.

I thought it would be interesting for the HEOTP community to have a place where we could speculate wildly or reasonably about what PG and friends may do as 'Deadline Day" approaches. The idea is that if you hear of a rumour, wish to create one, or would like to speculate on what may happen this month, put it here in the comment section of this post and let the rest of us comment, tweak, constructively criticise, fidget and dream too. Hopefully the real "Deadline Day" will be of the "Cocoa Beach Fantasy" variety and not "Nightmare on Coronation Street", but I'm sure we'll come up with scenarios which would fit in both.

Speculate away!
