Lapierre shouldn't have been traded, but when he was, the return was god awful, and the ducks quickly showed just how bad they fleeced us by getting a 3rd round pick a month later for a guy who did nothing but play poorly while with them.
Gauthier made a bad decision AND got fleeced...
this has the potential to be a nightmare.
Campoli, as useless as he's been, and as much as I have no issue at all with him being traded, is EXACTLY the kind of guy that should have been moved no sooner than a week before the deadline.
if he got a 4th now, I bet he could have got a 3rd, or even a desperate 2nd (from a top contending team who missed out on the D upgrades they were targeting but desperate to add that veteran D for the playoff run) right at the deadline.
you don't move a UFA-to-be for a paltry return a month out of the deadline... Gauthier is clueless.
Molson needs to step in before we end up with another Gomez/Kaberle/Lapierre type deal.
I agree with you but lets play devil's advocate and say Campoli gets injured again close to deadline, we get nothing in return. With the Habs string of bad luck, its a very possible situation
