Was there some funny business in this trade?

This seems a little fishy.

It certainly looks like there was something fishing going on with the trade that sent Montreal Canadiens prospect Jarred Tinordi to the Arizona Coyotes, coincidently the same trade many felt was a direct attempt by the National Hockey League to screw John Scott out of the all-Star game.

The general public learned on Wednesday that Tinordi had been busted under the NHL's drug testing policy, and as a result was the recipient of a 20 game suspension for performance enhancing drugs, but now some new details about this positive test may indicate the Coyotes got a raw deal here.

The Coyotes, like the general public learned of the positive teat only just yesterday according to a report from Coyotes insider Sarah McLellan, but did the Montreal Canadiens know about the positive test, or at least the possibility of a positive result, when making the trade? Many felt the Habs made a bad deal but what if general manager Marc Bergevin knew something was up?

According to a report from TSN's Sean Coleman Bergevin did know something was up, and made the following statement about the trade.

"I have some reason I can’t really tell you why but if I could you could probably understand," said Bergevin of why he made the deal.

Whatever the truth is here, we will probably never get a real answer.
