Montreal retains 20% of the cap hit.

This looks like a cap move. Davidson is a left handed defence, strictly for depth I would say.

 

Precursor to another trade where they need money.

Worth noting, Davidson is signed beyond this season with a cap hit of $1.425 million so this adds to the payroll for next year.

You would think something else is coming if they took on another cap hit.

Two straight days of adding d-men signed beyond this season certainly is interesting, isn't it?  (To be fair, Pateryn had another year as well...)

Wow.. The Benn trade was a small win, this is a big win for MB.

Bye-bye Emelin. Or N8.

Another lefty? Now 6 of our 8 d-men shoot left. Kinda strange.

 

Must need the cash available to make another move.

The deal frees up a pro-rated $1.375 million in cap space.  I'll get to updating the cap sheet shortly.

I'm thinking another trade is coming involving one of MTL's defencemen.  With Davidson and Benn coming in, does that mean Beaulieu's on his way out?  The next 15 hours will be interesting.

I have a lot of respect for wee Davey but his time has been done for a while. So long DD best of luck.

So MB finally was able to move him. Huh

Finally did a cap dump.

 

I truly believe Bergevin was dragging his feet on this for years now. Now DD's value was so low he had no choice. And now had to add to the Habs cap to do it. Though it won't be that big of a deal.

Some Edmonton people thought Davidson would be who they lost in the expansion draft - maybe the Habs feel the same way about Vegas liking him and aren't worried about the hit for next season?

They certainly stocked up on D that could be taken by Vegas for cheap. If Vegas even wants a D from Montreal.

 

Far too early to say who Vegas will take aside from someone good from Minnesota.

Davidson was a good defensive d last year, but turned to shit this year. 

Maybe they can fix him.

If not, he's cheap press box fodder, and we cleared cap space to get a forward tomorrow. 

Bet you Beaulieu is gone tomorrow.

Not the deal I was expecting for Desharnais, however...

You just might be right. Although MB does love stock piling defensemen so I wouldn't be surprised either way

Thanks for the services rendered Davey! Good luck in Edmonton.

 

With 8 d-men (6 of which are lefties) My guess is that something is gonna happen tomorrow!
