More On The Habs/Oilers Trade Talks

I just got off the phone with McGuire, and I got more news on the Habs/Oilers talks. Again, McGuire says this is all depending on how the Sundin saga plays out, that's what he's been hearing. He said if Sundin signs with the Habs, this trade could go down. Meaning it is probably a centerman leaving MTL. He told me the Habs are definitely after Ales Hemsky. In return the Oilers are asking for a young player, I have heard the name of Plekanec thrown out there, hence why its depending on Sundin as the Habs would need another centerman. McGuire does not think Plekanec will be leaving, he says the Habs want to roll three scoring lines. He thinks the return would be Higgins. This is the trade he gave me..

To MTL: Ales Hemsky
Denis Grebeshkov

To EDM: Chris Higgins
Roster Player
P.K. Subban

Take it for what it's worth but this came from McGuire..I will post more as i hear it.

Why would Edmonton trade Hemskey , what a stupid trade for both teams. Higgins is captain material in Montreal and Hemskey is there top line in Edmonton, makes no sense.

McGuire is in the same boat as Eklund. Both interested spectators hoping for a chance to break some real story. Reminds of you of the kids who aren't tall enough to ride the big roller coaster with their friends.

Yeah, I just got off the phone with Duthie, he said McGuire hit his head last night and his memory is gone haywire. He thinks it's April 1st again and is attempting to play April fools jokes on everyone...sorry man

I don't think that trading wingers will really help the habs cause really. Sure Hemsky will likely put up more points than Higgs, but does anyone think that BG is ONLY concerned with stats and numbers. Me neither...Just look at what Higgins brings to the table...tireless work ethic, non-stop motor, very quick and has been part of the core of this team. He leads by example and with such qualities, you hang on to players like that. I strongly doubt/hope that Higgins goes...

This is more rumor fueld by hockey buzz.

Why would they trade Higgings he is a natural center.

all these angry people posting comments here are only upset because they've been blind followers of eklund for such a long time and they get nothing from him but b.s., which makes them feel even dumber than they are. then they come to this site, see a real rumour, from a real source, that actually makes sense.
