On a related note, a random draw will occur from people who respond in this thread to play forward for Laval.

Nice upgrade. Weal is versatile and has plenty of speed. He can also kill penalties. Low risk move, MBs specialty. Wont miss Chaput or whatever his name is.

Weal's a nice depth addition but I wonder if he actually cracks the regular lineup (4th line RW) or is a healthy scratch for the most part.

Both former 3rd round picks from the 2010 draft. Weal at 70th overall and Chaput at 89th. I'm fine with there having been a market for a return on Chaput. Small win.

Right handed faceoff specialist, was nearly 60% in Philly. Good pairing with Thompson on 4th line. Will drive people crazy, relentless.

Weal is much better than Chaput.  I like this trade a lot. 

 

He could be a long-term fourth line C solution. 

 

Very good defensively.

I had a feeling he was kaput.

Weird. Same agent. Both probably whispered they’d like a change of scenery to the agent. And he said, “Done”.

Agree... he brings a lot more speed as well.

I see him playing the wing however this year.

As the only RH faceoff guy on the team, and with close to 60% on the season... he'll take a lot of draws on his side of the ice.

Is it a bad sign that he got dumped by two different teams this season?

Chaput has been dumped by two teams in 12 months as well..... His previous team let him walk after not making a qualifying offer, and now the Habs are trading him. 

 

Its the nature of players at that end of the lineup, especially ufa's to be.

Technically, three teams in 12 months.  Vancouver traded him to Chicago at the draft, then the Blackhawks opted not to qualify him.

Weal probably have to calm down with all the pun use in this thread at some point guys

This trade turned out to be an exemplary example of Bergevin wealing and dealing.
