HERE IS WHERE THE
confusion comes in. Montreal has been offensively challenged. Its main weaknesses have been goal-scoring and size up front. Its weakest position has been center. It is trading a player with good size who scored 30 goals in 2015-16 while playing center. In exchange, the Habs receive a smaller player who is basically a winger who scored only five goals in 82 games when the opposition had a goalie in the net. Arizona scored even less than Montreal. Its weakest position is also center. The Coyotes trade their third-leading scorer, a young player with energy, in exchange for a player who could not play center regularly for a weak offensive team. The reality is that neither team addressed its major needs by completing this trade. Is it any wonder that fans are confused?
