Good trade for Montreal. Gives them a better defenseman, while getting rid of a contract.

2 AHL-bound depth LD for 1, maybe Habs clearing a contract spot? Maybe just the usual change of scenery for each?

Kulak played 71 games in the NHL last year.. he might be able to crack into Montreals roster

Old teammate of Gallagher's for the Vancouver Giants. Both from Edmonton initially.

More solid asset management by Bergevin.

2 AHL dmen for a solid 3rd pairing NHL dman.

Crazy that many people said it was a fair deal. Trades like these is what makes Bergevin, Bergevin. Making those depth trades which always turns into a massive win for MTL. He's the true bargain-bin GM.

Looking at this trade 2 years later and it's stunning that we could turn two AHLers into the solid defenseman that Kulak has become.

Little did I know just how much better than Valiev & Taormina he would be.

You’d have to ask Flames fans, but I’m pretty sure things turned sour between Kulak and the Flames during arbitration which I think played a factor in both side’s willingness to part ways.
