I refuse to be brought in to the speculation game, about who Montreal might trade and trade for. I’m not Bob Gainey and I’m not Kreskin. So I don’t know, and you don’t either. None of us know what the Habs have in mind.
I don’t know if you’ve ever read Bleacher Report, which is a sports site that lets regular people become sports writers. It’s a site that covers all sports, written by dozens of staffers, so if you can’t get hired by a newspaper, you can always write for Bleacher Report.
Anyway, someone from Bleacher Report is now saying that Montreal is interested In Vincent Lecavalier, and Tampa Bay is interested in trading him. And the writer goes on to suggest that all the Canadiens have to do is part with Mike Komisarek, PK Subban, Tomas Plekanec, and Chris Higgins, or some combination thereof.
Maybe it’ll happen, maybe not. It’s only speculation.
They even started a poll which asked, “Will Lecavalier go to Montreal?” with 52.4% saying yes and 47.6% saying no.
Rumours abound, and not just at Bleacher Report. We hear everywhere about Toronto’s Tomas Kaberle heading to Montreal, about Alex Kovalev and Saku Koivu heading out, about Jaroslav Halak being part of a package, and about young quality Habsters like Sergei Kostitsyn being eyed by others.
I’m not going to get sucked into this. Whatever happens happens. If anything will happen at all. And I’m not crazy about the thought of losing PK Subban.
All I know is I don’t want the team disrupted. They’re doing fine.
And yes, Vincent Lecavalier would look good in a Habs uniform.
