Speaking of Craigs

Canadiens General Manager Bob Gainey showed he has the poker face of a champion by trading longtime (and hard-working) Hab defenceman Craig Rivet.

Hopefully Bob still has something in his cards that will give us a forward who can score goals.

Meanwhile, the blogosphere is starting to react.

Some are doing it philosophically:

We who follow the Habs have known for a while that Craig Rivet might be traded, and there had already been considerable debate amongst fans about the value of that decision. It was a difficult, wrenching discussion, since it almost completely centered on the concept of ‘intangibles’.

Others not so much:

LATENDRESS RYDER AND HIGGINS SUCK. HEATLEY IS THE MAN. […] GO SENS GO

Meanwhile, the media in California seem to think this is a good deal for them too.
