MONTREAL - With the trade deadline looming, Canadiens GM Bob Gainey has kept his cards close to his chest saying only that his intent is to try to land an "impact player." However, sources close to Gainey have indicated that the Canadiens are "very close" to completing a trade that would bring LeBron James to Montreal.

In return, the Cleveland Cavaliers would receive season tickets, the Gazette's Pat Hickey and a life-size poster of Michael Ryder.

James' name has surfaced numerous times in Internet trade rumours, however, never has it been stated that he would change cities, teams and even sport.

The trade might prove to be a risky move for the Canadiens as it is unclear at this point if James will learn to skate in time for the playoffs.
