The trade you're happy didn't worked out

Habs fan here,

Not sure if it's old news, but I personnally learned it this morning from our play-by-play guy on the radio. Seems that when Jacques Martin was the GM, 08-09 season, he concluded a deal that was final. The only thing needed was the Panthers president approval. Flyers had accepted it.

The deal was: Bouwmeester and Anderson for 3 players, 2 of which were Biron and....Claude Giroux. Martin went to the Pres who rejected it. Remember that was the year when both Bouwmeester and Anderson were to be UFA's....

Would have been great for Florida for once. Not sure how Bouwmeester would have develop under a Flyers system but that would have been an incredible loss for the Flyers....

When we say that sometimes, the best deals are the ones that do not happen....
