He may have been a cancer but the kid has become one of the Preds best players. Montreal has nothing. Streit was another. Robidas and Beauchemin were lost through waivers. The team learned their lesson here at least. Ribeiro was given for free because he was a cancer. And so was Latendresse and on top of that Pouliot is gone too for free. Montreal should at least try to improve the team. If Anaheim bought, Montreal could of added a piece or two and get a proven NHL player. I hope Carle doesn't turn into another of those players mentioned above. Well for Mitera, my hopes are not too high. The team will let him walk once his contract is done and that is the problem.

The list goes on. Maxwell was traded for Sopel and Dawes. Dawes and Sopel are not coming back. Lapierre was traded for Festerling and Festerling was given for Mcyntire. Bye bye Mcytinre. Last season, Montreal lost Lapierre and Maxwell for nothing.
Dude those trades were not for nothing. Sopel was a regular D-man for us vs Boston and was part of a team that came within an overtime goal of knocking off the eventual champs. Did you watch the games? Do you remember Sopel? He was much needed help on the blueline. This is the NHL the game is to win. Not to mention the fact that keeping players who want out is bad karma....we used to do that all the time and it never led to anything good. It's important to move players that want out....keep the circulation flowing.
