Desrosier could be a last resort for Moncton if they don't have a goalie lined up. He could probably be had for cheap too..

Roussy hasn't been the same player since suffering his shoulder injury. I'm not sure if he's playing injured or what but he seems to shy away from being physical which is what got him into this league in the first place. He was a #6/#7 guy in Moncton and probably wanted out if he was going to be sitting in the stands. I think this trade was to make room for a defender that Moncton will acquire tomorrow, or at least I'm hoping. Considering it's Gatineau's 3rd 2013 , I think it's a great return as it will likely be one of the first picks in the third round.
He wasn't happy in Rimouski in general, was a lot of little things, that just added up. Not just the low ice time, and not really given a fair opportunity this season. He's already ecstatic to be going to Shawi, wish him the best of luck.

It's a good trade for both parties, Rimouski was never going to use him this season at least, but Shawi got a steal.
