Montreal Canadiens vs. Florida Panthers
Is there anything else to say? If they can’t beat Florida, well…..
Gauthier made a minor trade on the weekend. Brock Trotter and a 7th rounder for Petteri Nokelainen and Garrett Stafford from the Phoenix Coyotes.
I think this was a mercy trade for Brock. It had become painfully obvious that there just wasn’t a spot available for a player of his ilk. Small, offensively gifted forward. Sound familiar?
In return, the Canadiens receive a bottom six grinder in Nokelainen and a defensemen who should be well known to anyone who has followed the Bulldogs in recent years. Remember when Parezhogin almost decapitated a defensemen and received a 1 year suspension? Yep. That was the guy.
Was this a setup trade for things to come? I don’t think so. Gauthier doesn’t seem like the type to panic. Give it a week. Things will be ok. Go breathe into a paper bag or something.
