Eric Staal sees 'great opportunity' with Canadiens after trade by Sabres 🏒
Eric Staal said it feels surreal to be a member of the Montreal Canadiens, given that he's been a thorn in the side of his new team throughout his NHL career.
But the forward, who was traded to the Canadiens by the Buffalo Sabres on Friday for a third-round and a fifth-round pick in the 2021 NHL Draft, is thrilled with his new opportunity.
"This is the best atmosphere in the League by far and now to be joining the group and joining the whole city, being a Montreal Canadien, is pretty phenomenal. I'm excited," Staal said Sunday.
