I really LOVE this trade... man.. it took me almost 1 hour to settle down!
Balej is a middle size forward with skill and speed. We have AK, Higgins, Perezhogin, Hossa ahead of him in our prospect chart. Plekenac has the same potential as Balej. If all of them makes the team then certain Balej is expendable now and in future. We have too many prospect in the same mood.
Putting Kovalev with Koivu is going to be amazing!!!! When was the last time Habs is a buyer before the trading deadline? BOB GAINEY is GOD!
The only thing missing is a top 6 player with grit. While Kovalev is not a powerforward of any kind, he is 6"2 and he made the team a lot bigger upfront. For the price - Balej + a mid 2nd rounder it's an excellent deal!
THANK YOU GAINEY!
