Montreal got better with that trade. Sergachev played, what, four games? Huge unknown at this point, certainly not ready to replace someone in the top four. This team needs scoring.
But they also need a center. This it's a short term move from a GM who won't be around much longer if he doesn't do something *now*. He has no qualms about mortgaging the future because if he doesn't, he won't be around to have to make the payments. Clearly the wrong move for the franchise but a move that Bergevin had to make. Big gamble. More gambles to come. Could be a huge fail.
What happens if Price gets hurt? Lottery pick. What if Danault has a sophomore slump? Markov blows out his knee? Weber plays the whole season like the second half? Radulov leaves and Kovie sucks?
Hey, I don't have all the answers. In life, to be honest, I've failed as much as I have succeeded. But I love my wife. I love my life. And I wish you my kind of success.
