If you're living in Montreal you're probably still digging out from a major snow storm, the first of this winter season. But yesterday wasn't the first storm for the Habs this season.
As the dust settles on the Cammalleri-Bourque trade both teams start to settle into their new realities. While neither currently occupy a playoff spot, the Flames are only a three points out.
The Habs? Nine.
Doable, but highly unlikely. What's more likely is that we'll see more movement from GM Pierre Gauthier over the next 45 days or so, leading up to the trade deadline.
The trade aside, there is still hockey to be played and the Habs face the surprising Sens tonight in Montreal. This is the first of a rare weekend back-to-back for the Habs, as they take on the even hotter Rangers on Sunday.
Tough weekend and one in which I don't expect more than one point in the standings. But you never know!
