Negotiations must not have gone as hoped with netminder Jaroslav Halak, as GM Pierre Gauthier shipped the RFA to the Blues for to young prospects.

Habs fans will surely be shocked and angry at the unforeseen developments, but by all appearances Gauthier has managed to gain for the organization a pair of worthy youngsters aged 19 and 20, who could help the team in the short term and cost little in the process.

Coming to Montreal in return are prospects Lars Eller and Ian Schultz.

Eller scored 2 goals in seven NHL games last season with St.Louis playing mainly with the AHL Peoria Rivermen in 2009-10, where he finished second in team scoring with 18-39-57 numbers.

Schultz was a Blues 2rd round pick in 2008. In 70 games last season with the WHL Calgary Hitmen he scored 24 goals and 31 assists in 70 games. In 23 playoff games, Schultz had 8-7-15 numbers, while helping Calgary to the WHL title. At 6' 3'', he is more noteworthy for his size. During the season Schultz had 150 penalty minutes.
