Canadiens Acquire Nicolas Deslauriers For Zack Redmond

Recommended Posts

Interesting.  Lets hope Deslauriers is the answer to CJ's need for a physical prescence (meaning we wont sign a goon like chris neil as some media outlets have suggested).  He's got decent-to-average skills for a grinder - although id rather have kept our 4th line skilled.   That said we probably had no room for Redmond (especially with Juulsen likely getting close)  so it is what it is. 

I presume this means the end of Martinsen...

This is in theory a nothing trade of two minor leaguers. Hopefully, we don't ever have to rely on the likes of Deslauriers or Redmond to play on our roster because it's trouble if we do. If the plan is to use him as a veteran minor leaguer, then fine. But in no way is he an asset we should be counting on to do something for our NHL team nor do I wish to see him take away ice time in the AHL from players we're developing.
