At the end of February, Kent Hughes made a trade to get rid of an unpopular player among Habs fans. He sent Evgeny Dadonov to the Dallas Stars and received in return Denis Gurianov, another mysterious Russian player.

Furthermore, the Canadiens retained half of Dadonov's salary on their payroll. Although Gurianov had a good start with the team, he quickly fell back into his old habits and was barely visible in the last few games of the regular season.

It seems increasingly unlikely that the Canadiens will make a qualifying offer to Gurianov, as he will become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season.

Meanwhile, Dadonov is experiencing a real resurgence with the Dallas Stars. At 33 years old, he has already scored three goals in just four playoff games. The Stars are currently tied 2-2 with the Minnesota Wild in their first round series.


Former Canadiens player, Evgeny Dadonov, also managed to collect 15 points, including three goals, in 23 games with the Dallas Stars.

Although playing for a competitive team in search of great honors may have contributed to his performances, the question remains: did the Montreal Canadiens get robbed in this trade? While some may think so, it is difficult to make a definitive judgment without considering all the factors at play.
