The Montreal Canadiens and general manager Marc Bergevin have really worked hard this offseason to give the team some more character. 

Amongst Bergevin's moves we find the Max Domi trade which brought over forward Josh Anderson from Columbus. 

Some people didn't understand why the Canadiens had to add a draft pick into the deal or why the signed him to a seven year deal. 

However for those familiar with him, it all makes perfect sense because he's a rare breed in today's NHL. 

Blue Jackets' head coach John Tortorella wasn't too happy about losing him. 

“Josh loved it here, and the guys loved him, too. There was a nice thing going on with him. This happens with all teams. But losing him … I’m not going to say it’s going to bury this hockey team. I’m not going to say that. You know how I feel about Josh. I wish that kid nothing but the best. He can be one hell of a hockey player.”

Sounds like Anderson was set to be a key part of the team going forward.
