The Canadiens made some key acquisitions at the trade deadline, and although some feel they gave up too much in the form of draft picks, the team will get a short term boost that could help them emerge from a relatively open Eastern Conference.

“I think it’s great for our players first of all and our coaching staff, the way they’ve done. So I’m proud of them, and [Monday] we brought help.” – GM Marc Bergevin

The most significant addition was defenseman Jeff Petry, which further bolsters Montreal’s league leading defense. It appears Marc Bergevin and the Montreal brass believe that defense and a solid goalie like Carey Price is the right formula for a Stanley Cup run.

However, not all Oddsmakers think alike, because 888sport still has Pittsburgh as (+375) to win the Eastern Conference, while Montreal is (+525).
