There wasn't any need to pull this trade now. Players get traded for a lot more at the deadline. We should of waited for a month.
Maybe cammy was a persona non grata in the dressing room anymore. He certainly was not contributing AT ALL. ZERO.

You are going to be called a fool, an idiot, stupid for posting this or some other nice comment.

There is a HUGE portion of our fan base that would praise Gauthier if he traded for a bag of ****, even if that bag of **** was dropped on those fan's head in the middle of a game.

Gauthier traded a sinus infection for a bad case of Hemorrhoids. To some, that means we wont be sneezing any longer so its fantastic.

Thanks for the reality check that the Gauthier fans are overlooking.

We don't need contribution now. We need to tank and wait 1 month. We all agree we won't make the playoffs so waiting a month isn't a big deal.

To the person that said Kaberle is a good move ..LMFAO!!!

Of course. The organisation did this with Latendresse, Leblanc, Subban, Eller and Price after all.

That claim of yours has no basis on reality.

Unbelievable.
But how long did you really want to wait? His stock was dropping by the game, any one with a half a brain could see that. Imo, Calgary was THE team to trade with, because they're one of the few teams as desperate as us to turn their franchise around. Just because we were able to trade Cammy doesn't mean that a lot of other teams would have traded for him. Sure there could be GM's out there who'll now say, "Oh i didn't know about that, i would have offered something." But how much really? Who wants to take on a 6m a year guy who's struggling and hasn't played very well for quite a while now? You can play the what if game all you want, but at the end of the day we improved our team, there's no doubt about it, imo.

Uh, have you checked the NHL standings lately?

At 3.3M$, I'd say it's fair especially compared to Cammaleri's 6M$.
if he was playing for the habs, it would be:

80 GP - 14 G
73 GP - 14 G
58 GP - 11 G

Offense dies in Montreal. Bourque brings nothing ..oh he's big ..BIG DEAL! he's not tough, he doesn't use it and he's freaking lazy!

He's signed until 2015!! Why COULDN'T WE WAIT 1 MORE MONTH!

For once, I gotta agree with you.

Wait for the trade deadline and you can get a whole lot more for Cammalleri.

We got a better Moen out of this, a scrub prospect, and a 2nd rounder for next year. I'm not impressed.

So upset with this trade.

Fine get rid of Cammalleri because you recoginize that this team is not going to go anywhere. Get young players or draft pics. That makes sense if you are a fan of this team.

If you are Pierre Gauthier and trying to save your job bring in a 30 year old french player with a 5 year contract to try to save your ass. Its pathetic. It makes sense for Mr. Gauthier's personal situation but makes no sense for the Montreal Canadiens.

At this point I think William "Boots" Delbagio would be a better owner than Geoff Molson. How could you be so stupid as to let a lame duck GM trade away a core player for a 30 year old with a five year contract.

Are we going to win a cup with Rene Bourque? No. But we will win enough to miss a top draft pick.

I hate Pierre Gauthier and more so Geoff Molson for letting this farce go on as long as it has.

You are thinking like a reactionary, just like Gauthier.

Do you realize how many more games have to be played by every team between now and February 27?

Hockey is a contact sport. I think that it is safe to say that there will be several teams between now and February 27 that are in playoff contention who will have an injury to one of their scoring forwards. And an offensive minded player like Cammy would be just what a team needs for that playoff push.

All a competent GM has to do is look at the situation here in Montreal. Everyone on this team is underperforming. JM had them playing a stifling offensive game that hurt our goal scoring. Next, JM was fired and replaced with an interim Anglo speaking coach in the middle of a **** storm.

A forward looking GM would look at the upside of Michael Cammalleri and what he WILL bring to his new team and NOT at his lack of production in the upside down world of Montreal Canadiens this season.

Think people. Cammy's price would have gone way up on February 26 compared to what we got today.......which is nothing that will help this team to improve in the short run or in the future.

The GM is responsible for the personnel moves he makes. You can't just look at the standing and put all the blame on 1 guy. But I won't respond to you further, since I'm well aware of the fact you're a troll.

THIS is what I've been saying. Bourque has 27 goals in each of his last 2 seasons in CALGARY! He would have gotten half of that here.

Cammy will play well in Calgary. I'm certain of it.

Bourque is not french and he's as much a salary dump as he's a filler to be honest. No playoff team has the cap space to take on Cammalleri's 6m.

Furthermore we got a 2nd round pick and a prospect, its something.

I'm not upset to see Cam go... but...

Bourque has motivation problems. Cammy works his ass off in the summer, and was clutch in the playoffs.

If Bourque can come in and lay some bodies out... hey I'm happy.

I'm happier if Bourque can land us another 2rd round pick + at the deadline.

You can look at the moves that Gauthier made in the offseason. You can also look at the moves that Gauthier DID NOT make in the offseason.

This team is woefully lacking on offense, defense and is the softest team in the League.

If pointing that out to you makes me a troll, then by God I am a troll. At least I have the honesty to state that this is one of the worst Montreal Canadiens teams that I have seen in a long long time. And it is all due to the "1 guy" who makes the decisions on who plays here and who coaches here.

No dont respond to me and enjoy the next several seasons of Montreal Canadiens ineptitude. And blame that on the "trolls".

Powerforward? Tough as nails?? Speaks french ?? From Quebec??

Everything you said is not true about Bourque.

When someone is 6'2, it doesn't neessarly means he's phyiscal or tough. He's more like Latendresse than Cole
