Rumor: Red Wings Aquire Mathieu Dandenault from Montreal Canadiens for

Don't shoot the messenger. Apparently this was just reported on Team 990 in Montreal. I don't see why this deal is necessary. Does he even fit in under the cap? Maybe his contract is pro-rated since he is a UFA next year.

ETA: The mods at HF closed the thread temporarily. It said it was reported as a trade though, not just chatter. I still have trouble believing it. Also, I noticed my title doesn't fit on the board. Note that I did include a question mark at the end. I am not trying to mislead anyone.

I was under the impression the Wings had room to fit a guy in with somewhere like $3M into their current cap situation? I'll wait and see with this one...

It would be nice to see Dandenault come home where he belongs.

You can never trust the Montreal media. We'll see what happens.

haha true. In other news, Jacque Demers was in tears over the news of Mathieu's departure. More on this massive story at 2am.

The mods over at HF are pretty uptight. Closing down a trade rumor thread in the trade rumor section? That's pretty weak. I bet we will know more about this rumored trade at 2 am.

He belongs here... :rolleyes: right :thumbdown::thumbdown::thumbdown:

Well, he would be better than Meech, who has shown he isn't NHL ready and he would be faster than Chelios. He would fit in as the 6th D-man.

1.725M cap hit annually...

Well that wouldn't be much prorated.

I am going through this in my head and I just can't come to a definite conclusion. The information seems to have been reported too specifically and straight forward to be BS, but I just don't see how we could have gotten another Meech/Lebda without giving up a Meech/Lebda. Maybe one will be waived. I guess if it were between the three of them going into the playoffs I'd take Dandy, but Kenny better not even dream of resigning him if this is true. With Lidstrom, Rafalski, Kronwall, Stuart, Lilja, Meech, Lebda, and Chelios already, and Jon Ericsson in the AHL, Dandenault has no place on this team moving forward. None.

It would be strange to see the Wings make a move this early.

I don't mind Dandenault but I hope this isn't it...

If this is true, the Wings will have to trade off of the roster if they want to make anymore moves.

This is exactly the kind of move I expected if something were to happen and I'm fine with it if it's true. He'll put pressure on anyone playing in the 5-6 pairing, brings some good experience, and he'll probably be happy and hungry returning to a consistently great team with a legit shot at the Cup. Plus, it already will feel like home to him. I really see no downside to this if it's true. It's highly unlikely they'd pull off something much bigger than this anyways so I don't know why people would be that upset over it.
