Alright let's look at this one with another point of view,
Montreal let go a player that slowly became a cancer inside this team. He stated it was at center or nowhere and Montreal answered by putting him in the 4C chair, on that day you knew Domi would be out of Montreal before the season starts.
To me the odds of him either, signing a contract he doesn't deserve (7M$/5 years) or going into arbitration, getting his one year deal and get the hell out of there next year are pretty high and that's where I understand the move from Montreal because they won't be overpaying for a 3LW. Montreal gets their version of Tom Wilson (Hopefully now fully healed) for a guy that didn't fit the plans and a third rounder.
Domi has scored plenty of point in Montreal but with Tortorella he'll see quickly enough that gliding on the ice doesn't go unseen in Columbus, in his second year he basically did so every single game showing his switch of attitude. In the end he better be the happy Domi otherwise Columbus will hate his inconsistency and the way he just glides everywhere like it's only a preseason game.
Can't talk much about Anderson but clearly many GMs thought he could be back to his old form and I still trust the process because I've been wrong too many times with Berge trades. I'll resist the urge to take a stand and will wait at the very least until I see the contracts being signed.
