The Canadiens played and lost to the Boston Bruins last night, but that isn't the big news.
The bombshell that was dropped, if you haven't heard by now, is that Habs forward Michael Cammalleri was traded DURING the game. Yes, you read that right. He was traded between the second and third periods and pulled from the ice, destined for the hotel.
I, personally, have never seen or heard of something like this happening before.
But considering how surreal most of this season has been for the Canadiens, I think this move is just more of the same.
I'll post my analysis of the trade shortly but suffice it to say that I think Habs GM Pierre Gauthier is just getting started.
