The Canadiens have traded Ben Maxwell and a fourth-round draft pick to Atlanta for veteran defenceman Brent Sopel and forward Nigel Dawes.
It wasn’t long ago that a TV broadcast featured a special on Sopel and his wife and how difficult it is for a player to be away from home so often and to be traded from time to time. Now it’s Montreal. Don’t worry, Sopel family; if you’ve ever dreamed about being in the hockey market to end all markets, it’s now about to take place.
Welcome Brent and Nigel. May you fit in nicely.
