Well, when you look back at the history of the Montreal Canadiens’ transactions, one of them that was just a simple, unimportant deal at the time could end up bringing the CH a lot of money if all goes according to plan.
I’m talking about the deal that sent Tomas Plekanec to the Toronto Maple Leafs in the 2017-2018 season.
From Tomáš Plekanec with the Toronto Maple Leafs to Mats Naslund with the Boston Bruins, we take a look back at ten longtime members of the Montreal Canadiens that looked really weird wearing different jerseys.

It’s important to note that such a transaction between rivals (Canadiens-Leafs) is rather rare.
Seeing Plekanec in a Leafs jersey was actually very odd to observe, as Marc Dumont noted in his article featuring a top-10 list of CH alumni on whom a jersey other than the CH’s made them look very odd.
A rather banal return when analyzed today, considering that Jacob Olofsson was a prospect who never broke through, and Kerby Rychel didn’t last long in the CH organization, playing just four games (one goal and one assist) with the CH and 16 games (eight goals and four assists) in the AHL with the Laval Rocket.
Valiev also didn’t last long with the CH, playing two games with the Tricolore and five games with the Rocket, collecting one goal and two assists.
You’ll certainly remember Kulak, who played four seasons with the Habs from 2018 to 2022.
That’s why Kulak was traded to the Edmonton Oilers at the 2022 trade deadline.
Currently, Hutson is seen by many as the Tricolore’s top prospect, as well as a future NHL elite defenseman.
Hutson’s development is going very well, and if all continues to go well, Hutson will be seen as one of the steals of the 2022 draft.
The American defenseman could very well become the Canadiens’ best defenseman within a few years.
