All the way home I listened to speculation on TSN 690 about the possibility of Max Pacioretty getting traded, with the question being, for whom?
Or is it just idle gossip on a slow news day in Montreal, aside from all the ice and snow.
I don’t want Max traded. Streaky or not, he’s a big power forward who can find the back of the net.
How many others on our team can we say the same of? And how many are out there who are similar?
What, we’re going to get even smaller? If Marc Bergevin trades Max for a little guy, I’m moving to Tibet to find the true meaning of life.
Okay, I can be swayed. I’ll take either David Backes or Alex Pietrangelo for Max.
There was also talk that he and Michel Therrien don’t see eye to eye. Twenty guys on those ’70s Habs teams didn’t see eye to eye with Scotty Bowman either.
There’s probably a thousand examples. It’s part of nature. Working for the man.
Again, I don’t want Max traded.
And congratulations to him and his wife Katia for their new baby boy, Lorenzo. May Lorenzo grow up in Montreal. At least during the winter.
