Report: Hossa to Habs

Atlanta Thrashers right wing Marian Hossa is heading to the Montreal Canadiens before the NHL trade deadline, an executive within the league said Monday night.
With Mats Sundin declining to waive his no-trade clause, Hossa's the marquee forward on the block, and I'd be surprised to see him moved until right before the deadline, and after a furious bidding war.

The rumours I've seen on this deal have Chris Higgins and/or Michael Ryder going the other way.

I'm going to wait for more official confirmation before offering more.

Gainey's already said he won't deal a core player. I don't know how Higgins, a 25 year old assistant captain who is signed to a very good contract, could be suddenly deemed expendible.

It's gotta be Ryder and some Bulldogs, not Higgins. I wouldn't trade Higgins for Hossa straight up... and Gainey better not, either.
