Darks Days in Montreal as Jaroslav Halak Traded to the St. Louis Blues for spare parts – Cornwall Ontario – June 17, 2010

Cornwall ON – In what many Habs fans will consider one of the darkest day in the teams history Jaroslav Halak was traded for spare parts to the St.Louis Blues (Lars Eller and Ian Schultz).   John Davidson is going to be grinning awfully wide as he swills some single malt on this deal as he didn’t even have to throw in a draft pick.

He gets a young goalie who has now proved himself at every level of play including deep into the play offs for a lithe Centre from Denmark with no North American history and a spare part, and not an exciting one at that.

Yes Halak was Arbitration bound, but surely Pierre Gauthier could have done better than this?   The team clearly showed it had little interest in playing in front of Carey Price in the last two season.  With the departing of heir apparent Guy Boucher and no Bob Gainey to blame this isn’t happy time in Hab land.
