Montreal Canadiens Links

  • The Habs landed one of the biggest names on the board yesterday, acquiring defenseman Jeff Petry from the Edmonton Oilers for a surprisingly minimal return. Petry should excel in Montreal, expecting to fit into the teams top four. [TSN]
  • Jonathan Willis of the Edmonton Journal believes that the Canadiens did very well with the aforementioned deal, exposing the Oilers' managerial incompetence in the process. [Edmonton Journal]
  • The Habs also landed two forwards in separate deals with the Buffalo Sabres: Brian Flynn and hometown boy Torrey Mitchell[RDS]
  • Mitchell was beyond stoked about joining his favourite team growing up. [TSN]
  • Led by general manager Marc Bergevin, the Canadiens had a very solid trade deadline. Bergevin showed great patience and perspective by not sacrificing any critical pieces of the team's future, while not giving up anyone off the roster. [Sportsnet]
  • As per usual, Bergevin refused to deviate from his plan; comprehending where his team is now, as well as where they're going. [TVA]
  • Pierre McGuire joined the guys over at Montreal 690 to discuss the day, saying that Bergevin and the Habs did "fantastic". [TSN 690]
  • The Canadiens joined the likes of the Anaheim Ducks and the New York Rangers as clear trade deadline winners. [CBS Eye On Hockey]
  • Lost in yesterday's chaotic day, P.K. Subban was named the NHL's second star of the week. The star defenseman had a goal and five assists for six points last week. To nobody's surprise, Ottawa Senators goalie Andrew Hammond was named first star, while Pittsburgh Penguins stud Evgeni Malkin was named third star. [NHL]

Around the League and Elsewhere

  • Looking to catch up on every trade from yesterday's deadline? SB Nation has you covered. [SB Nation]
  • Despite all the movement and excitement over the past few weeks, Chris Johnson says there is no clear cut Stanley Cup favourite. [Sportsnet]
  • Some very bad news for the Calgary Flames. Captain and star defenseman Mark Giordano is done for the season with a torn bicep; undoubtedly a huge blow to their playoff hopes. [Matchsticks & Gasoline]
  • As expected, the New York Rangers inked forward Mats Zuccarello to a 4-year, $18 million contract extension. [Blueshirt Banter]
  • This is simply awesome. Jordan Leopold's 11-year-old daughter wrote a letter to the Columbus Blue Jackets asking for them to bring her father home to Minnesota. They granted her wish, sending Leopold to the Wild for Justin Falk and a fifth round draft pick yesterday. [Puck Daddy]
  • And lastly, TSN caused quite a stir during yesterday's deadline coverage. An inappropriate Tweet appeared on screen insinuating a situation between Toronto Maple Leafs forward Joffrey Lupul and captain Dion Phaneuf's wife Elisha Cuthbert. Lupul was less than pleased about it. [Globe]
