The Montreal Canadiens pulled some voodoo magic off on Tuesday afternoon shipping newly acquired Dman Marco Scandella to the defending Stanley Cup Champion St Louis Blues for a second-round draft pick in 2020 and a conditional fourth-round pick in 2021.
The Canadiens only gave up a fourth-round pick for Scandella a month ago( LOL THAT’S SO BUFFALO) and flipped him into at least a two round upgrade. That is a recipe for success. Look for the Habs to consider doing the same with Ilya Kovalchuk who has ruled so hard since signing there.
The St Louis Blues fill a void left by the scary incident involving Jay Boumeester last week. The great news is Jay Bo is on the road to recovery.
