Unfortunately, that didn’t shake out that well in reality, as he eventually had a falling out with the Habs. Montreal ended up sending him to Dallas, where he turned things around a bit with the Stars. That process only continued when that same team traded him to the Washington Capitals, where he’s surprisingly become the team’s leading scorer.
