[Trade] Red Wings trade Steve Ott to Canadiens for 6th-round pick

Recommended Posts

Poor, poor man's consolation prize for Hanzal?

Thought the Habs were in on getting the big guy.  Still, guys like Shaw, McCarron, Mitchell, Flynn, Gallagher and now Ott, plus Emelin, Weber, etc. makes for a collectively tough group.

Ott used to be my favourite pest, a few years ago. I am less sold on him tipping the scales as an effective player these days. 


That being said, definition role player. Presumably they think he fits the bottom line role left open by Desharnais much better than David did. And between him, Shaw, and Gallagher, they are truly cornering the market on pests. They can have one on the ice at all times!
