Canadian pairs skaters Meagan Duhamel and Eric Radford went from elated to frustrated in the span of a few minutes.With time ticking down to the start of the regular season, Marc Bergevin needed to finally make those tough roster moves that he has been talking about since the start of camp. The first order of business for the Canadiens general manager was to pick a back-up goaltender. Bergevin decided to trade away his veteran backup Peter Budaj along with prospect Patrick Holland to the Winnipeg Jets. In return the Canadiens received forward Eric Tangradi who was assigned to the Hamilton Bulldogs, giving 25-year-old Dustin Tokarski the backup job. Tokarski had an impressive performance last spring when he replaced the injured Carey Price in the Eastern Conference Final against the New York Rangers. Bergevin called Price to let him know Budaj was no longer with the team. He was one of my best friends, it sucks but at the same time we have another guy who I am pretty good buddies with so it was going to be a lose-lose situation no matter what, Price said when asked about thee trade.dddddddddddd It was even harder to hear that his teammate from the past three seasons had been placed on waivers shortly after being acquired by the Jets. Price has faith that Budaj will eventually make it back to the NHL. Not long afterwards Bergevin announced that Francis Bouillon will not be offered a contract by the Canadiens. The veteran defenceman was invited to camp on a Professional Tryout basis, instead the team is giving their young defencemen like Jarred Tinordi and Nathan Beaulieu the opportunity to prove what they can do at the NHL level. I met with Tinordi and Beaulieu today and told them its really hard to make the NHL and its even harder to stay. They need to keep getting better, Bergevin told the media. The Canadiens still have to trim one more man from their roster and it will most likely be a forward as Bergevin is not a fan of going with six defencemen. The final decision needs to be made before Tuesday at 5pm et.
