While Jaroslav Halak being traded to the Blues was the major story yesterday, the majority of Habs and Hockey fans focused their attention on only half of the deal. Yes, Jaroslav Halak was the spark that ignited the Habs’ playoff run, and yes it is sad to see him go, but I think we’re focusing on the wrong side of the coin. What about Lars Eller and Ian Schultz? Everyone is so caught up in the fact that we traded Halak that nobody has even said a word about the two stallions we’ve received as compensation for the thoroughbred we sent packing.
It’s a good thing you checked in on Habs Laughs today, because we know all there is to know about Lars Eller and Ian Schultz.
