The swapping of Domi and Galchenyuk may prove beneficial for both.

The trade might prove beneficial for the HAbs but the Habs problems are more to do with inept management and ownership rather than the quality of the players,you could have the best player in the world but if he isnt used right his talents are wasted.

I wouldn't accept any salary to play for a Canadian team. Even 10% more isn't worth it at all to pay Canadian taxes and live in Canada. No thanks!
LOL!!! What??? I'd MUCH rather live in Montreal, Toronto or Vancouver than pretty much anywhere in the country if the right opportunities were available.

LOL @ the vibrant cities of Montreal and Toronto being "miserable icebergs."

Actually, San Jose is nicer than Montreal since I have a cousin there, which I regularly visit.

Better weather, better downtown core and cleaner/safer

Please tell me you're kidding. I'll give you the "better weather" (Montreal winters suck, I know) but DOWNTOWN? Have you ever been downtown Montreal? It has possibly the most vibrant downtown in North America outside of Manhattan. San Jose is nowhere NEAR Montreal's league.

Yes, I have. Downtown Montreal is just meh at best. Hang out at Mc Donald on St. Catherine in the evening. San Jose has much more attractive downtown with actual fun stuff taking place there. Hockey players rave downtown and the weather as the reason why they love playing in San Jose. Sharks are doing just great these days, making playoffs just about every year. Canadiens: not so much.

I do like Old Montreal and Plateau, though.

Hmm... I've seen that McDonald's before, never been there lol. I don't know... It's a pretty "happening" place with lots to do and see.

Also, one of my main draws to "downtown" Montreal is its layout, and how it pretty much seamlessly spills into Old Montreal to the South, and Plateau to the North, without interruption. No driving required, everything can be reached easily on foot due to how walkable and dense the entire place is. San Jose lacks that quite severely.

The official Montreal "downtown" boundaries are weird. in any other city, much more would be included in there, including the Gay Village and McGill.
