I guess Kotkaniemi and Suzuki made Bitten expendable. Montreal really shoring up their depth dmen. Not sure I would've made this move, but must be part of a quick rebuild plan.

Yeah at first I was shocked they traded Bitten but I think you're right. The new guys made him expendable...everyone loves the shiny new toys right?

not a bad return for a defenseman that just cleared waivers, but still like the deal for Montreal.


As much as I don't regard Bergevin as a very good GM, nevertheless, they're building a decent volume of youth.


NHL ready projects like Reilly, Ouellet and Olofsson among their young blueliners (worthwhile young guys to audition imo) - added to Mete and Juulsen - some reasons to be optimistic.


Liked the acquisition of Armia as well - and a Tatar with something to prove could be a great pickup.

Kotkaniemi, Danault, Lekhonen, Hudon, Peca....not a fan of the Sergachev or Galchenyuk deals, but at least they have Domi to show for it.  Drouin needs to improve.


Fun, energetic team to watch, with some good young players.
