Preparing for a trade or call up?


Registered Member
There's been a lot of speculation over the last few days that the Habs and Oilers have been in talks of trading a few players who were picked in the first round.

So today, the Habs have sent Drayson Bowman back to Hamilton (Called him up yesterday. That was more than likely a call up to earn him a couple dollars toward his guaranteed money).
Two days ago they sent Tinordi down but today they called him back up today.
On top of that today, the Habs have place Rene Bourque on waivers. If he clears, he will go to Hamilton and his 3.3M Cap hit will turn in to 2.4M cap. That's if he clears, which many hope he does [not].

Now - you have to ponder if this waiver was so they can rid themselves of Rene Bourque to free up come cap space for an eventual trade or if freeing up the 950,000 would clear enough space to bring up a player from Hamilton. A Tangradi or Andrighetto. My money would be on Andrighetto if it is for a call up.

So - Impending trade or call up?
