No one was surprised when Tyler Toffoli
left Montreal this afternoon for Calgary. Rumors had been swirling that the forward was in the Flames' sights. The only thing left to do was to find out how the marriage would be consummated.
It is now done!
If you were under a rock this afternoon or at the dentist like yours truly, here is what the CH received in return for Tyler Toffoli
: Tyler Pitlick
, currently injured and an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season, Emil Heineman
whose talent you can see here
and 1st and 5th round picks.
But as you probably already know, in Montreal, rumors refuse to die!
This is where Sportsnet reporter Eric Engels comes in!
According to him, the Flames are still interested in Canadiens players. National Hockey Now tipster Jimmy Murphy mentions that prospect Matt Coronato, the 13th player selected in the 2021 amateur draft, could be involved!
If so, the player or package offered in return must be significant.
In our eyes, Josh Anderson
and Ben Chiarot
are the only suspects that would allow this kind of return.
What do you think? Do you agree with our assessment?
