    Default We Have another Trade: Martinsen for Baun

    Habs acquire Kyle Baun. He is the grandson of Bobby Baun.

    This alleviates the AHL vet issue.

    The Habs are now one vet over, they will have to scratch one vet each AHL game... at least until Jerabek is called up (European games count to vet status).

    Baun scored 40+ points in the AHL last year, while I still believe Martinsen is pure shit.

    The Andrighetto trade is not looking too good so far

    Martinsen is no big loss but yeah, trading Andrighetto for him seems silly.

    Even for the playoffs, Andrighetto would have been fore useful than Martinsen. Scoring goals was a bigger issue than size.

    Hell, playing Hudon would have been more usefull than any one of Ott/Martinsen/McCarron/Mitchell. And not just this year either. We need scoring and had some in the minors with Hudon yet we loaded up on plugs.
    Elite goaltending will hide a lot of a bad team's flaws and make them look a lot better than they truly are. That's why Carey Price is the single most important player to his team in the NHL.

    Julien will probably ask for these neanderthal types at the deadline

    I'm sure he's the one pushing for Neil right now.

    Again not sure andrighetto makes our current team as a winger and would have been on waivers anyway

    That would have depended on his camp

    He would be better than Hemsky I presume.

    Defensively? Nope, not even close.

    Hemsky has become a good defensive player since going to Dallas, a key reason he can play in our bottom six and Andrighetto couldn't stay in the lineup.

    Andrighetto has to be the most overrated cast off in years. I don't see what everybody thinks is so great.

    No one does but when you pick up crap like Andreas Martinsen for him...

    I expect a bunch of Martinsen's and Ott's at this deadline as will. Probably end up trading someone like Carr for them.

    I think that title still belongs to Jiri Sekac but the same reaction happened with DSP. Again, it was mostly the return that annoyed people (Stefan Matteau and Martinsen in each case), not the departed player. He finished last year strong but let's wait and see on how he does this year but no matter what he does, it's already better than what Martinsen did for us.
