Permanent Trade Proposal Thread in Habs & Hockey Talk Posted July 3, 2013 You don't trade your captain. Let him run out his contract. Last thing I want is the 90s again where the team had zero leadership because we kept trading it. Especially since despite people putting their hands to their ears and shouting when it's said, Gionta is still one of our best forwards. Desharnais sounds like he fits the bill though. You seem to get too consumed with the crazy opinions of others. They could be 12 years old on their mother's computer. I agree with you though. MB probably won't trade the captain. And he's even less likely to trade DD. First off, nobody wants him and that contract. And secondly, he'll get another chance to prove himself.
