One thing you can always expect from sports is that you never know what’s going to happen, or when it’s going to happen.

Just as Habs fans were tucking themselves into bed, or already fast asleep, Marc Bergevin pulls the trigger. Canadians star forward Max Pacioretty will be pack his bags and head to Vegas as the long awaited deal for his services finally took shape.

The return – Tomas Tatar, Nick Suzuki, and a 2019 2nd round pick.



While many hockey fans were catching some Z’s when the deal was announced, others were awake to react to a deal that is sure to rock the hockey world over the next 24 hours as people realize it’s happened.



Very mixed reaction from two shocked fan bases. The kicker of this deal is that the best player, Pacioretty, has just one year left on his contract. Whether the sizable return was worth it for George McPhee and the Golden Knights remains to be seen…
