Trade rumour: Dallas scouts in Montreal

Or so says Yvon Pedneault. In a story he wrote a couple days ago he claimed Dallas Stars scout Dave Taylor had been seen at the last four Montreal Canadiens games. Curious why he never mentioned that when he was pumping his Tanguay rumour? Anyway, a quick look at both rosters and it's obvious both teams have the same needs. Scoring goals. Brenden Morrow or the right-handed Philippe Boucher would certainly be of interest to Bob Gainey since both are known for their aggressive play and scoring ability but Dallas would be foolish to part with either of them.

Even though the owners of the two clubs are partners in owning Liverpool of the English Premier League there just isn't a good fit to make the hockey clubs trading partners.
