Rivals swap players
The Habs and Leafs hooked up for a trade today, albeit a rather minor one.
Tomas Kopecky (57)
Kevin Klein (59)
The Leafs wanted a forward for a d-man, and while we already have 7 d-men, this move helps us because we can now bring up Claude Giroux to replace Kopecky on the 4th line. We also get Klein who will likely be Top 4 on Nashville, paired with Hamhuis.
Kopecky is a 4th liner who could put up some points with Chicago this year so this is a pretty even trade in my mind. Thanks Rob for the deal.
