Afternoon Update

Few interesting rumours involving Montreal I want to talk about. First, Jose Theodore wants a long term deal that could cost Montreal some money. This could add to the Theodore for Luongo rumours. The second rumour is a blockbuster. According to a CBC radio station out of Newfoundland, Tampa Bay has traded Brad Richards to Montreal in exchange for Micheal Ryder, Ron Hainsey and a 3rd Round Pick in 2006. The deal is expected to be announced Monday. Right now this is just a rumour, hopefully we will find more on it for tonights update, as well as the Toronto/Detroit rumoured trade. I have also learned that Ryan Smyth will not be traded.
