We gave up cap space so that's something..

Hopefully this is the Mara the Habs will be getting:

If he plays the way he played for New York after being traded, he can be useful..

Can we get that 91 guy back as well. Number 11 is terrible.

Random trade at a random time. I... don't really know what else to say.

I think we have some of the best personalities on D

PK Subban, flashy, cocky, outgoing etc

Gill, the stand-up comic

Spacek, close to a mascot we can find

Mara, Beard man

Hamrlik, connected

Markov, so boring he's entertaining

So they give up a pick for a guy they didn't think was good enough to re-sign last off season??? Wow. I guess they really must have missed his -16 piss poor play last year, and wanted the guy back. I've been saying they needed a depth dman, but why not get a guy who you didn't already witness suck in your uniform. Things that make you go hmmm.

We actually gained cap space for the moment.

Nash's NHL salary is 900K, sending him down and bringing in Mara saves 150K.

I don't think he "sucked" but heading into the year we had about 7 guys infront of him. Guys got injured, things changed. Plus hes cheap. Even if this is the only move PG makes its still not as if its horrible. I'd rather just stand pat anyways. Even though its so damn underwhelming lol.

Oh, he definitely sucked. He's not better than Alex Henry who would have cost them nothing to bring up. I get that this isn't a big move, and the 5th is not much, and obviously it won't cripple the franchise, but it's the type of nonsensical move that drives me crazy.

Give a little more and get someone who you didn't let go or stand pat.

Dallas Dave seemed to have called this move earlier tonight..

Hey Guys

I'm hearing rumors that Anaheim will anounce a minor trade with Montreal as soon as their game with Washington is over tonight.

Paul Mara is headed back to Montreal for a late round pick. Not sure what round though.

Why deal for Festerling when he's not even good enough to step in with all these injuries. Then you deal for Mara.

People are funny on this board. This is a MINOR move. A 5th rounder in 2012 is nothing. Mara is a guy who can drop the gloves when things get hairy, can play the power play if necessary and is better better than Picard or Henry who a lot of people wanted to call up for the Boston game. ITS A GOOD MOVE.

Just for the tease, the OP should change the title to: Habs traded with the Ducks, acquires ex-Habs!
