I am probably the only one who is not overly excited about this trade. I kinda expected this trade today or tomorrow seeing that none got called up with the Sunsdtrom injury, so I knew a trade was cooking and honestly I was expecting Kovalev, O’Neill or Smyth. Kovalev will play great with Saks and Zed and will get Montreal deep in the playoffs, a hell of a line. However I dislike trading our most exciting, hardworking prospect. I would have preferred Pleks instead. We have Perez who will become Kovalev in a couple of years. Anyway wish Balej good luck, he will become a great player, something that Montreal didn’t have for a long time, and that will haunt Gainey big time…and btw highly paid super stars don’t do well in Montreal (see press and boo birds)….suddenly started to like the Rags!
