Canadiens claim Traverse off of waivers

Montreal claimed him from San Jose on waivers. I wonder if the injury to Souray is more serious than originally thought.

    Wow…. I'm a big habs fan but wtf is going on?  Patrick Traverse? This guy used to make my heart stop beating everytime he touched the puck a couple years ago… Crap

    I 'm pretty sure he was known as the HABS pylon back in his days with us
    poor HUET
    I know we needed a defenseman but not him , who cares how much im sure there was better at equal to or less of a price

    Montreal will miss the playoffs,…….period. With the exception of koivu and ryder, the habs are a team built out of "maybe i'll play tonight,…..if i feel like it" players. Samsonov was a waste of a signing,….dont the habs already have like 5 sergei samsonov's on the team??! Huet will turn out to be a flop and Kovalev will fall to the ice in pain on a nightly basis after someone skates to close to him.

    Great just Great.

    Nothing like having Reverse back in our lineup I swear I did a happy dance in the office when I found out that we had finally gotten rid of this piece of work and now he's back..maybe they claimed him to play in Hamilton but I have a feeling we'll see this gem in the top six on opening night.

    The times are bad when even Jason Wooley won't sign with you.

    The Habs will still challenge for a playoff spot don't get me wrong and I still love them but it makes me cringe to see Patrick Traverse back in the fold..why don't we just make Michel Terrien the coach again?

    Your an idiot, get off the computer, try to get a girlfriend, move out of your parents basement, and pull your head out of your ass.  Leafs are garbage and so is their new goalie and management.

    San Jose fans had their prayers answered. if only the habs could claim belak off waivers.

  10. CedrickRozon says:

    Heck, I'd rather have Belak!!!

    say goodbye to the playoffs,… with Traverse in the lineup, our Goals Against just went up 50 or so…

    I'M a habs fan but wow i dont know why but i agree soo much, except we are making it to the playoffs and Huet is no flop buddy!!

    I was hoping to see more of Jancevski to be honest.  I liked how he has played, and for a big man we moves pretty decently.  Additionally, at the age of 25 he still has can become a legit NHL defencman.

    Either way, I have some good and bad news:  Souray is back, but Traverse is playing in the NHL (at least according to the Montreal Gazette). 

    Apparently, Traverse will be our #7 D-man until either Cote or Bouillion recover, while Souray's injury is not serious and he will be back on opening night.  However, I still hope to see Jancevski in the final pre-season game…put both Traverse and Jancevski in, and lets see how they both play.  While I understand the coaches desire to have experience across their blueline, Traverse is a band-aid at best and Jancevski has potential.
