This is surprising. I thought Martin was a big fan of him. I never really understood the love, personally.

Natey won't be happy.

Mackee 06-27-2011 04:23 PM

Maybe they'll re-negotiate once he becomes a UFA (assuming they can)? Also quite surprised he wasn't qualified.

ECWHSWI 06-27-2011 04:23 PM

meh, not a huge fan of his but considering he wouldnt cost much, plays 100% every shift, never complain when in the press box... would have kept him as a 13th F.

but, but, but, ''Pyatt is an integral part of the team''; says BaseballCoach and MillerTime

:sarcasm:

Quarantesix 06-27-2011 04:24 PM

white and moen are better option on the 4th line

Bullsmith 06-27-2011 04:24 PM

Can't fault his work ethic, but he just couldn't contribute enough 5 on 5.

RoyBoyCoy 06-27-2011 04:24 PM

Surprised. I liked him. But to be realistic, this will have little impact on anything.

One Man Rock Band 06-27-2011 04:25 PM

Nice!! McDonagh and Valentenko for nothing. :)

I think Pyatt is a great fourth liner, but we have a pretty deep roster this year regardless.

Watch him go on to score 30-points this year on another team though like a lot of young players have went to be better when they leave. :(

Frankc 06-27-2011 04:25 PM

It's a surprise.

Even if he had really good defensive instinct aswel as good skating, his lack of offensive skills made him expendable. But I didn't think Habs were going to just let him walk away for nothing.

eddy 06-27-2011 04:25 PM

Fast and good on the PK but guys like him are a dime a dozen, hopefully they replace him with someone grittier that can do the same job.

Myron Gaines* 06-27-2011 04:26 PM

Pyatt's efficacy clearing the puck will be missed.

Jesse Pinkman 06-27-2011 04:26 PM

About time, hopefully that means they won't sign him comes July 1st. :handclap:

3 goals and 27 assists ?:)

Universe 06-27-2011 04:27 PM

A 24 year old penalty killer and we let him go? I wonder if he goes and plays with his brother?

DekeLikeYouMeanIt 06-27-2011 04:27 PM

Weird. He was on the cheap anyway. Hopefully this is the start of bringing in gritty bottom liners to play with White/Moen.

Good luck TP :handclap:

No one can call you a slacker.

Too bad we couldn't transplant you into AKost's body :)

Maybe in the future...

300 goals. ;)

Nah, but I don't see the sense in this. He would of been super cheap. He's a great #13 forward. Great PKer and probably the best player on the team at getting the puck out of our zone.

He's still pretty young too.

Makes me wonder really why the trade was ever done. Pyatt was always going to be little-no offense and great defense. It's what he's been his whole life. Gomez for Higgins, Valentenko, and McDonagh is an extreme overpayment. Even worse now without Pyatt.

Le depisteur 06-27-2011 04:33 PM

Anyone has news about Ryan White??? :dunno:

Hannibal 06-27-2011 04:38 PM

Happy to see Pyatt go! :)

Aurel Joliat 06-27-2011 04:39 PM

I guess he received an offer.

Awesome news for Pyatt ! A player like him doesn't belong in the NHL. The Canadiens will have a much better bottom 6 without him !

Sandvich 06-27-2011 04:40 PM

Wow i was expecting him to receive at least an offer.

He was awesome in PK.

Anyway we got Gomez

pine 06-27-2011 04:40 PM

His 2 goals and 5 assists will be sorely missed.

Redux91 06-27-2011 04:41 PM

makes me think gauthier will be gunning for wingers july 1st, and me likey

I guess they think White and Moen are better 4th liner ( i think they are too) the only way I will be mad that they let Pyatt go if it's Moen don't play on the 4th line next year because we will still lack offensive depth.

Gauthier need top sign a good top9 players he have no choice IMO
