Jaroslav Halak Traded to St. Louis Blues
I don't normally update for this type of thing, but it seemed to come out of the woodwork.
Per TSN's Bob McKenzie, the Montreal Canadiens have traded the brick wall of a goaltender that beat the Penguins, Jaroslav Halak, to the St. Louis Blues for compensation yet to be determined. It's not a total surprise that Halak was traded, but the news popped out of nowhere.
Montreal Candiens fans should start rioting....NOW!
Edit: The players heading to Montreal are C Lars Eller and winger Ian Schultz. SHOCKED that St. Louis didn't even have to give up a roster player for Halak. Eller was the 13th pick in 2007, while Ian Schultz is a Matt Cooke type. What a deal for St. Louis.
