News broke this morning, that the Habs are seriously looking to trade for a quality forward. (Renaud Lavoie of RDS) Names being thrown around from the Canadiens are Scott Gomez and Andrei Kostitsyn and from Phoenix, Ray Whitney and Kyle Turris. I’d been refreshing my twitter page every 5 seconds, anticipating the announce of the big trade. Then, after about an hour and a half, the big trade had finally been announced:

To Phoenix:

Brock Trotter

7th round draft pick

To Montreal:

Garret Stafford

Petteri Nokelainen


Not cool media… Not cool. Got me hyped for next to nothing. Although I’m a little peeved to see Trotter go, I liked what I saw out of him in the presseason.

Here, I’ll restore all that wasted anticipation with this cliff-hanger: Some say this deal is a setup deal and that they’d expect to see more of the Habs on the trade front.

If another deal is made I’ll report it here.
