    Default Habs acquire Nate Thompson from Kings

    + Arizona's fifth-round pick for Calgary's fourth-round pick.

    Our new fourth-line center.

    Kings apparently preferred the 4th instead of Hudon

    Might be Chicago's fifth instead of Arizona's, but they're only two spots apart right now.

    The Habs need to make another move prior to 5pm/et to open up a roster spot for Thompson.

    Someone else needs to go. Roster was at 23 before the trade. I expect Chaput to be sent down? Or Hudon out for a pick?

    Don't play until Thursday, so wouldn't be surprised if Mete was "sent down" until they figure it out.

    At least he's an NHL caliber player who can win draws.

    4rth line is shaping up into what Julien likes, size and grit
    Go Habs Go!

    Bob McKenzie:
    Thompson will help MTL on PK, faceoffs and depth. Great teammate. Speed is average — one pro scout wondered how he would fare in track meet game like Saturday’s MTL-TOR tilt.

    Hopefully fare better than the fourth line the other night. They lost us the game

    A 4th line with dlo and this new guy would be garbage.

    Once Byron’s back and assuming no more injuries, DLo will be eating lots of hot dogs in the press box

    Eric Engels:
    Whichever player is being waived by the Canadiens tomorrow has already been filed with the league as a non-roster player. So no paper transaction required to make room for Thompson.

    Decent? Maybe but need more than that vs TBay and Leafs

    Exactly. But strange to see Mr. Glass is Half Full so down on this acquisition. He's better than Chaput (I hope) and we're talking 4th line duties.
