Shea Weber didn't have to turn far to get the lowdown on Montreal upon learning he had been traded to the Canadiens.
Standing immediately next to Weber was good friend and former Canadiens defenseman Josh Gorges, who was staring at his phone in disbelief. The two had just finished a boating excursion with their sons in Kelowna, British Columbia, and left their phones in the car when the blockbuster trade that sent P.K. Subban to Nashville was completed on June 29.
"We parked the boat and grabbed our phones and both were blown up by calls and messages," recalled Gorges, who now plays for the Sabres. "It was kind of comical, to be honest with you."
