Woo-boy. If anyone needed a reason to hate the Montreal Canadiens even more, Mark Bergevin just gave them a big one in the acquisition perma-pain-in-the-butt Steve Ott from the Detroit Red Wings.
In return, the Red Wings will receive a sixth round draft pick in 2018.
Ott joins a team that already has Brendan Gallagher and Andrew Shaw in its lineup. Perhaps they’ve just formed a French-Canadian version of the Axis of Evil or ‘Axe de Mal,’ if you will.
If only they could acquire one more uber-agitator then Montreal could claim to have all four horsemen of the hockey-pocalypse.
(Calm down Canadiens fans. Jokes.)
