We have a truly stunning rumor to report although we have to state that at this time it is merely a rumor.
We have just heard on 91.9 Sports that Montreal Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin is reportedly in talks with the Philadelphia Flyers to bring Claude Giroux to the Montreal Canadiens.
Needless to say this is by far the most shocking trade rumor of the entire season and a trade of this magnitude would absolutely set the world on fire in the Montreal hockey community.
This rumor has not yet been corroborated by any other source but just last Friday former NHLer George Laraque predicted on big move on the horizon from the Canadiens on those very same airwaves and this may be what he was referring to, although that is pure speculation on my part.
Definitely more to come on this story, stay tuned.
Update: The audio of this segment can be heard here although the commentary is entirely in French as this is a French-language broadcast from the Montreal area.
