Initial Reaction: Great! We got another defenseman, maybe this one will help the porous defense.
Current Assessment: Christian Ehrhoff for Rob Scuderi was a trash for trash move. Ehrhoff had 2 assists in 8 games for the Blackhawks. The Blackhawks also had to retain $1.13 million of Scuderi’s salary in the deal.
Current Assessment: Stan Bowman went for it with trading for both Weise and Fleischmann. He was not thinking about the next season. But the move was a bust, as both players were not good in a Blackhawks uniform.
Weise played in 15 regular-season games with 1 assist. In four playoff games, he had 1 goal against the Blues. Fleischmann was a tad bit better than Weise. He had 4 goals and 1 assists in 19 games. In the playoffs, he did not have any points.
Both players were not retained by the Blackhawks. Danault thus far has 10 goals and 11 assists for the Canadiens in 58 games.
