We Have A Trade To Announce

Recommended Posts

The Montreal Canadiens trade Zach Redmond to Buffalo for Left Wing Nicolas Deslauriers. 

A litle more grit in the AHL and helps with the pro rules.

Minor trade but seems fine to me. deslaures has been in the NHL for 4 years, so if he plays for Laval he should bring something to the table

I speculated the other day that Deslauriers could be someone they look at.  Redmond wasn't going to have much of an impact this season with Montreal and I don't think Deslauriers will either.

 

The biggest thing here is that at basically the last possible second, the #20 streak lives on.  Players who have that number only last one year.  Redmond's second season would have started tonight with the start of the NHL campaign (which reminds me, I better go start the general NHL thread) but the 'curse' lives on.

Geez, was O'Byrne more than a year (I think so), or do we have to go all the way back to Zednik to find a multi-season #20?

O'Byrne was with the Habs for a few years but he only switched to #20 for 2009-10.  Three games into 2010-11, he was dealt to Colorado.  So technically, he lasted just over a year with #20.

It was less than a year.  He didn't switch to #20 on opening night in 2009-10.

 

He switched to #20 during the 100th anniversary game in December, when he gave the number 3 up so Emile Bouchard could have it retired before that game.

I stand corrected.  So yeah, it has been a while since someone has lasted more than a year with that number in Montreal.

I like all these little moves that Bergy does. Solid asset management. Deslauriers>>Martinsen. Marty just can't skate. He looks like Douglas Murray out there at wing. Nicely done!

In order (I think): Redmond, Bartley, Malhotra, Vanek, Armstrong, Wisniewski, Leach, Lang, O'Byrne, Smolinski, Johnson, Zednik. 

 

Let it be known that if you want out of Montreal you change your jersey # to 20.

That's some catalogue! I sure liked the Wiz. Lang was great too before he went down to that stupid injury, which started the catastrophic collapse of Gainey Rebuild 1.0.

 

Smoke and Mike Johnson were smart players near the end of the string - I liked them too, respected their contributions.

 

Zednik, now there are some painful memories...memories of a time when we thought he and Jan frigging Bulis could be top-6 FWs on a quality team. Oy. :unsure:

I thought Martinsen was a very good skater. 
 

Unfortunately that (and being large) were his only skills.  No hands, no awareness, not good offensively or defensively, didn't win enough battles for his size, no shot, no passing.

Ya, not too sure where the Doug Murray reference comes from
