Worst trade by the Habs in a long long while there. What the hell were they thinking anyway?
But then, maybe you're wrong. Maybe the guy who was potting goals like crazy for weeks until he injured his wrist again is the real Pouliot. Maybe it's Latendresse who will return back to form next year. But then, why speculate when you can simply call it the "worst trade by the Habs in a long long while there" (Ribeiro was way worst, just for a start) and say that "He has been an AHL-caliber player his entire career. And the Habs knew this". There's nothing like grandiose dramatic statements to make it sound like you know what you're talking about.
