Habs set on trading Gorges, Briere

The Montreal Canadiens appear poised to trade veteran defenseman Josh Gorges and forward Daniel Briere in an attempt to clear up extra salary cap space.

Gorges, 29, was almost traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs, but the native of Kamloops, B.C., nixed the trade.

Gorges, who first found out the Habs were trying to move him on Saturday, can list up to 15 teams he will not accept a trade to and Toronto is on that list.

"I'm in shock," Gorges told RDS, adding that he expects to be moved.

While Gorges has revised his list and shorted his no-trade list, it's unknown if Toronto is off that list.

Gorges registered one goal and 13 assists for 14 points in 66 games with the Canadiens this past season.

In 560 career NHL regular-season games with the San Jose Sharks and Habs, Gorges has accumulated 14 goals and 84 assists for 98 points.

Briere, meanwhile, is expected to be traded in the near future, TFP has learned.

The Habs have been trying to move him, and could complete a deal as early as today.
