    Surprised VGK are sending Suzuki to Montreal, but it's certainly a trade that improves them significantly short term.

    They need centers, don't they?

    Montreal is like a high school girl who thinks she can get 1/2 pregnant.

    Not a bad deal for either side.

    Agreed. Very fair, though it kind of sucks that VGK gave up Suzuki. I'm assuming extension talks are already in the works for Pacioretty.
    Collectively, though you can't really think about it like this, VGK gave up a first, two seconds, a third, and Suzuki for Patches, taking into consideration the trade with DET that landed them Tatar.

    I always though Suzuki was a wing. Works out better for Montreal.

    Still, Habs messed this one up. Although the return is "solid", they should have moved him a year ago and gotten almost twice as much.

    I know, like I said above I’m a bit surprised they moved him.
    I was asking who Alive was saying needed centers, Vegas or Habs.

    Agreed.
    Marchessault/Karlsson/Pacioretty is very solid, or they can move guys around to set up two goal scoring lines. Statsny could be a great foil for Pacioretty.
    Habs get a cracking C prospect, and Kotkaniemi/Suzuki can be a strong 1-2 punch in not to long. Add in a 2nd and I think they’ve done well with a guy who’s been out the door for months.

    This was a Good trade by VGK. Max has given VGK depth at center which is what they needed and MB (Marc Bergevin) should be fired but won't happen because Geoff Moulson doesn't care about the state of the Canadiens

    That’s not a bad deal at all for both sides. Brings him to what 33 or 34 years old.

    He’s a LW.
    And it’s not a bad trade by the Canadiens imo.
