Which would make a lot more sense for the Canadiens, considering there was backlash about them passing over Giroux, and JvR was not nearly as proven of a commodity following 2010 as he was after 2011.
Montreal was looked upon as a group of midgets though. Which was also one of the reason they lost against us, even though Halak played like a god against us aswell. I don't think JVR was concidered a bust before his playoffround against Boston in 2011. After all, I remember him scoring some freaky goal against Boston in 2010.

But you're right, if it indeed was Giroux they wanted, I wouldn't have done that trade either...

I did enjoy many of the brick jokes btw, keep it up!
