PHOENIX -- Are the Montreal Canadiens and the Edmonton Oilers a trade match?

Maybe so. Montreal GM Bob Gainey told reporters after practice yesterday he's looking for a defenceman who can play 18-22 minutes a game, which is a commodity Oilers GM Kevin Lowe has an abundance of since acquiring Dick Tarnstrom and Jaroslav Spacek Thursday.

Lowe needs a starting goaltender, and Gainey has Jose Theodore, as well as Cristobal Huet and highly regarded farmhand Yann Danis in the AHL with Hamilton.
