He was also 34 when he got traded. In the end, Detroit made the right move; they went with Osgood, who ended up being better than Vernon.
Montreal, on the other hand, traded away Halak, who will be miles ahead of Carey Price for the next 8-10 years & Montreal will be hurting for it.
So since you can see into the future
What are the winning 6/49 numbers for the next month?
