I think Canucks GM, Mike Gillis, is probably primed to make a panic trade. Zack Kassian would be a pretty good fit for the Habs. He's only 22 and besides Dale Weise, the Canadiens don't have any RWs with size in the Parent Club or in Hamilton.

So based on your analysis, are you saying The Habs need to resign Brian Gionta? Since you believe he is still a capable top-6 player and plays against the other teams top players?

This game and in particular, this road trip will be a good measuring stick for the Habs. GM Bergevin has been rumoured to be after a scoring winger for a while now and tonight's game showed you why, they are a one-line team. Outside of the DD line, none of the other unit's are contributing consistent offense. Captain Gionta kind of flies below the radar among the HIO regulars but he gets 17-19mins nightly and has yet only produced 12goals. He may not even get 20. Fortunately this is his final year of his us$5mill contract. For a guy counted on to contribute offense, he's been a disappointment. The third line with Eller and Bourque has been together for more than a month and they simply have no chemistry. Outside of Saturday's Leafs game when Weise was moved up to play with them, that line has not worked out. I'm probably in the minority here, but I really believe this team isn't that far off from being among the top echelon. Get some secondary scoring and with Price in the nets they could surprise in the playoffs. Its not like the King's dominated the game.

In a grinding game like tonight is where you see the value of Murray.

I disagree. A tool is useful.

Eller and Bourque on the 3rd line have all the chemistry of a divorced couple
