The deadline has come and gone and the Canadiens have officially confirmed that they will complete only one move today, the deal that saw Huet go to the Caps for a 2nd round draft pick in 2009. I’m disapointed about Hossa going to Pittsburgh but glad at the same time that we didn’t overpay for a rental. I’m a little confused by the Huet deal; we put 20 year old Price is as our number one while trading Huet for nothing better than a bag of pucks? Let’s hope Price is able to come up big and Halak is solid behind him.
So, no impact player (no player at all, I guess) and one less goaltender. I’m a little bummed but I’m looking forward to seeing what Carey Price does with his newfound number one status. For all the Habs fans hoping for a blockbuster: don’t lose faith! We have a strong team with some excellent talent and we currently sit only four points out of first place in the Eastern Conference – we don’t need Hossa!
