Canadiens brass moving forward after Pacioretty trade

Canadiens Trade Max Pacioretty To Vegas As Rebuild Continues In Montreal

Marc Bergevin and the Canadiens traded team captain Max Pacioretty to the Golden Knights in exchange for veteran winger Tomas Tatar, top prospect Nick Suzuki and a 2019 second-round draft pick which originally belonged to the Blue Jackets.

The Canadiens got Tomas Tatar, prospect Nick Suzuki and a second-round pick for Pacioretty, who topped 30 goals and 60 points in each of the previous four seasons prior to slumping to 17 goals and 37 points in 64 games past year. He is in the final year of a six-year, $27 million contract extension he signed with the Habs in 2012 that has a $4.5 million AAV.

What Happened Last Year: The 33-year-old Bergeron battled groin issues early and a fractured foot late in the season, and missed 18 games with his assorted injuries throughout the regular season.

McCarron, the Canadiens' first-round pick (25th overall) at the 2013 NHL Draft played 54 games last season with the Rocket, posting 7-17-24 totals and 121 penalty minutes. Tatar signed a four-year, $21.2 million contract with Detroit in 2017 that has a $5.3 million AAV.

The Golden Knights added him in a late move before the trade deadline in the hopes that he'd add more of an offensive punch for their postseason run. "Here we are today, the morning after", Molson said. Selected 13th overall in 2017 by the Golden Knights, Suzuki can play both on the wing and at centre.

China's exports, imports slowed sharply in August
But 2018 Chinese imports through July were up almost 9 per cent over the same period of 2017, according to US Census Bureau data. Last year, a New York University student who worked undercover in an iPhone factory reported that he made $450 per month .

Officer Opens Wrong Door; a Tragedy Results
The officer, who was not publicly identified by authorities, then opened fire on the man who resided there, police said . The officer has not been identified, and she is being placed on administrative leave as the investigation is conducted.

He has played in 427 regular season National Hockey League games with Detroit and Vegas, contributing to a total of 228 points with 119 goals and 109 assists. Tatar is usually good for 20 goals per season, and the real centerpiece of the trade for Montreal is Suzuki. I will not go into details.

With Pacioretty getting shipped out on the eve of camp, it sure looks like the misery and the losses are going to continue this season unless banged up Carey Price puts up one of the best goaltending seasons of all-time. "But I see progress for our team, and I'm convinced we're going in the right direction".

"It's definitely not the way we wanted things to turn out". "We're aware that previous year he played a lot on the wing, but he played at centre too. It just wasn't working out". Discussions were ongoing with Pacioretty and when the trade request came in, the Canadiens started to actively pursue it.

"There are all kinds of buzz words around re-tooling and rebuilding". Bergevin remained mute on Pacioretty's future as the summer wore on, while the frsutrated captain spoke often publicly about his situation in limbo and his detiorating relationship with the club. The likely candidates are veterans Shea Weber and Brendan Gallagher, though the organization has not indicated when it will make that decision.

On the back end, Xavier Ouellet was given a one-year, $700,000 contract and Simon Despres was offered a try out.
