Peter Popovic was signed and joined the team, while Saku Koivu was drafted.

No, the exact date was December 6th, 1995.

This got me to thinking
perhaps more relevant was who signed or was traded in the summer of '92?
So i had a quick look and this is what I came up with

MARCH 1992
Montreal Canadiens traded Petr Svoboda to Buffalo for Kevin Haller.

JUNE 1992
Montreal Canadiens traded J.C.Bergeron to Tampa Bay for Fredderic Chabot.

JULY 1992
Montreal Canadiens signed Donald Brashear as a free agent.

August 1992
Montreal Canadiens traded Shayne Corson, Brent Gilchrist and Vladimir Vujtek to Edmonton for Vincent Damphousse and Oilers' 4th round pick in 1993 Entry Draft.

Montreal Canadiens traded Russ Courtnall to Minnesota for Brian Bellows.

Well we were eliminated in the first round in '94 and we missed the playoffs in '95. We were about middle of the pack when Roy left. So we were totally mediocre then as well. Though we're much better off with Roy, he had a ton of help in Colorado.

The Damphousse and Bellows trades made them significantly better. Without those two trades, I doubt the Habs would've won.

Keane, who was also our Captain at the time, was also included and we got back 1 decent player.
So we traded 1 decent player for another decent player and traded a legend for crap.
This was undeniably the turning point period.
As long as we had #33 we could always be considered a contender at some level, when he left, so did that contender status.
To say different is just plain ignorance.

The Muller for Richer trade the year before wasn't too shabby either

Popovic was probably my least favourite Habs player ever, that guy was just god awful. He would make the biggest brain farts on the ice.

Didn't hold a candle to Patrick Traverse, by far the worst D-man in our storied history.

I'll always remember Kevin Haller for getting a 4 or 5 minute high-sticking penalty for opening the stiches of a guy who was already cut and him coming out the box and going towards the referee. I thought it was in the playoffs versus Buffalo, but I want to say Boston?

Was Brashear part of the cup run? I remember him later on with the habs, I think his first goal scored went off his head.

Damphousse trade was robbery, I'll always remember that Les Canadiens cover with him holding the sainte-catherine street sign.

Bellows came in and scored 40 goals, what more can you say.

Let's not forget Denis Savard was shipped off to Tampa for.... nothing. I think Bellows hung around a few more years then got shipped off to Tampa for... Marc Bureau?

Carbonneau played one more year for Montreal as well, but they brought in Ronny Wilson in the summer of 1993 to "help". Lebeau got turfed for Ron Tugnutt, but that might have been in 1994 as well.

But I thought he was the reason we eliminated the Caps? Don't tell me people around here exaggerate.

Yeah, the Damphousse trade was the key I think. Obviously, that was and always will be Patrick Roy's Cup, but Damphousse led the team in scoring in both the playoffs and regular season that year.

They had to give up a fan favorite winger, a veteran grinder, and a prospect, but it was obviously worth it.

Yeah the Damphousse and Bellows trades were obviously what took us to the next level.

Courtnall was putting up good numbers, but wasn't necessarily considered to be much of a playoff guy. Corson had his troubles but was always one of my favorites. I remember Gilchrist being a pretty versatile guy and gave us nice production on the 2nd and 3rd lines. But we got two very good 1st liners in return.

Funny though...if HFboards existed back then i wonder what the reaction would have been to trading Vujtek? He was pretty highly touted at the time but ended up being a bust.

Or how about our amazing "Swede connection" of Patrik Carnback & Patric Kjellberg (who actually had a few decent seasons with Nashville)?

Soooo many busts from around that era. Brent Bilodeau, Lindsay Vallis...ugh.

Europe wasn't on the map back then really, it was just starting. Bowman took a huge chance at the time with Jagr. He scouted him personally and pushed him hard in Pittsburgh. And Euro players had not adjusted to NHL style hockey, were not playing in Canadian juniors...etc.

I didn't realize he played 5 games for Pittsburgh in 2002-03. He also played 3 games for the Thrashers back in 99-00.
