Always a bridesmaid…

So the Habs came up short on Vinny. The sweepstakes are over. Now, news that they are after Daniel Briere, who many see as a consolation prize. My prediction? He doesn't sign in Montreal either. Jagr? Nope. Why? Because for Montreal, the old adage is true: always a bridesmaid, never a bride... ...except if you count the acquisition of Christian Thomas from the Rangers earlier...

Here's video of last night's goal (00:16 mark)... ...why not recall him? I dare someone...

Who could be trade bait?

Acting GM Jeff Gorton is on record as saying the Rangers plan to be aggressive on the trade market to try to improve the club by the April 3rd trade deadline.  Marian Gaborik is obviously the biggest name being floated in rumors, but it’s difficult to find a good fit and it’s probably more likely than not that Gabby finishes the season with the Blueshirts.  That said, it...
