Major news on Rem Pitlick: we know why he was traded and Kent Hughes deserves respect

It's not for nothing that Kent Hughes is appreciated throughout the NHL. He's a perfect gentleman with his players for many reasons.

In fact, when the time is right and there's room to sign players, Hughes and Martin St-Louis will lure them to Montreal, there's no doubt about it. For the time being, there are too many players and a good succession to train.

Renaud Lavoie had some good news for us about Rem Pitlick. The latter was traded in the major three-team transaction that sent Erik Karlsson to Pittsburgh and Jeff Petry to Montreal.

"According to Renaud Lavoie's information, Pitlick had indeed recently requested a trade."



Pitlick would have been a surplus forward with the CH, but think again if you think he can't help another lineup. Even though the Habs have been a bottom-of-the-table team for the past two years, there are youngsters growing and Pitlick simply didn't have a future with the club. Rem will certainly be able to help an aspiring team on the 4th line.

Kent Hughes' wish came true. Add to that the fact that he warns players when they're on the market, like Joel Edmundson, for example.
