Hossa getting closer to Montreal?!?
Detailed article (in french)
Now, as explained in the article, this doesen’t necessarily mean a trade is imminent but it obviously mean that the trade talks are getting VERY serious.
Brunet also stated as an example a trade that fell through 2 years ago when the Habs ordered equipment for Nikolai Khabibulin and Adrian Aucoin (formerly of the Chicago BlackHawks) who were supposed to get dealt for José Théodore, Mike Ribeiro & Pierre Dagenais
No words on who exactly would be dealt for Hossa, but the names of forward Michael Ryder and defensemen Mark Streit along with a draft pick and/or a prospect were floating around apparently.
