Dear Habs Fans (re: the trade)

Thank you.

You're welcome.

As of right now, I can't imagine either party is too bummed about this deal.

Pouliot 11 GP 6-1-7
Latendresse 24 GP 13-6-19

And I suppose it's possible that both players regress to the kind of play that got them in hot water before.

To wit:

Pouliot with Minnesota this season: 14 GP 2-2-4
Latendresse with Montreal this season: 23 GP 2-1-3

But, and if I have to say this, we're not going to shove twenty cameras in Gui's face every time he goes two games without a goal.

Not that you shouldn't do that to Benoit. By all means, scrutinize every hair on both of his testicles. That's what makes you Montreal.

But, let's just chalk this one up to mutual benefit, eh?
