I think Tampa wins this one in the long-term. Now they have enough cap space to sign Palat, Johnson, Sustr, and possibly another decent defenseman. And they have a guy like Sergachev who's gonna bolster that blue line for the future.

Palat was always staying. I honestly hope I'm dreaming right now. It should have been Johnson going...

Yea, but think long-term. Drouin would have been great to keep but he will demand more pay than Johnson. Also, Tampa has Brayden Point who is developing nicely so with Drouin gone they can afford giving Point a big contract and adding him to their core.

Yeah, I'm surprised it wasn't Johnson. MTL needs centers and Point can easily replace Johnson as the 2C.

Montreal just got a lot better offensively, but Sergachev is A+ prospect.

Definitely a major trade. Granted, Drouin is a lot younger than Gomez was at the time of his trade, but the last major trade involving a Habs prospect defenseman was Ryan McDonough. Didn't work out well for Montreal. Does that mean Chucky is gone?

What this trade has done
Killorn has gotten his ass saved
Kucherov will get paid as much as he wants
Vladdy will hang around
Garrison might survive for another year
We can sign a big name FA
We lost a special player with potential to be elite

Point is much better than Johnny. It would have been fine to keep Drouin because when Point's contract is up, Stralman and Coburn's would be expiring. Coburn would leave and Stralman's pay would drop.

Why couldn't we send Garrison and received Chucky somehow? It would have been a lot less painful.

And now we have Killorn as a top 6 fwd. Cirelli, Raddysh and Howden better develop quickly

Chucky for Duchense now? Can't imagine they'd keep Galchenyuk at this point

You don’t build a team through free agency or trades, you build it through the draft. And you need to be patient with these guys ...


... says the man who trades away an amazing drafted defenseman after only giving him a 4 game NHL trial. squinty smile

At least I get to watch Drouin doing stupid challenges and games on the MTL youtube channel where Gallagher laughs every 5 seconds

They most certainly need Galchenyuk, he's their center. Maybe Gallagher or Pacioretty gets traded now, but I doubt. Probably Byron.

This habs fan is ecstatic. Can't wait to watch Drouin wearing our colours next year. Exactly the type of offensive force we needed.

Open season on Montreal prospects and picks. Bergevin must be feeling the heat to win now.

He'll pick up a center next and a D-man to play with Weber or Petry. Both likely on the wrong side of 30.

I was hoping that none of our young forwards would be moved, bit if someone had to go, I was hoping it'd be Johnson. Sad Face.
