Montreal Trades Marco Scandella To St. Louis

MONTREAL - The Canadiens announced on Tuesday that they've acquired a second-round pick in 2020 and a conditional fourth-round pick in 2021 from the St. Louis Blues in exchange for defenseman Marco Scandella.

Scandella, 29, was acquired by the Canadiens from Buffalo on January 2 in return for a fourth-round pick in 2020. The Montreal native played 20 games for the Habs, recording three points (1G, 2A).

The 6-foot-3, 212-pound rearguard is a veteran of 569 NHL contests with the Minnesota Wild, Sabres, and Canadiens. He has 136 career points (42G, 94A) over 10 seasons in the League.

Scandella was Minnesota's second-round pick (55th overall) in 2008.

Missing The Playoffs Again In Montreal

from Jack Todd at the Montreal Gazette,

In truth, any hope the Canadiens had of a miracle resurgence was gutted when captain Shea Weber went down. The team took the news like a Mike Tyson uppercut to the solar plexus. Faced with a crucial week, they lost all four games, their season effectively over by Valentine’s Day.

To the bitter end, this will go down as a team that was less than the sum of its parts, for reasons that remain less than clear. Fairly or unfairly, blame has already been apportioned to head coach Claude Julien and GM Marc Bergevin. The fans want blood on the carpet and they want it now, to the point where some want Bergevin fired immediately, with the trade deadline a week away.

The suggestion is ludicrous, but it leads to a strange truth underlying this lost season, which is the team seems to be worse despite a series of strong moves made by Bergevin over the past couple of years, deals that brought in Domi, Tomas Tatar, Armia and young Nick Suzuki, who has merely been the Canadiens best skater over the past month.

Bergevin simply doesn’t lose significant trades — yet his team is about to miss the playoffs for the third consecutive season and fourth time in five years and that is, as his critics are quick to point out, unacceptable — especially in Montreal.
