Breaking News, Mike Cammalleri has been traded to the Calgary Flames. The news was broken on Twitter.

Mike Cammalleri had some very interesting words about his teammates and the way the Montreal Canadiens have conducted themselves so far this season.

However, it looks like he has already been traded out of Montreal. He later came out and tried to explain that he was misquoted but the damage may have already been done.

The following tweet was sent out by Louis Jean of Sportsnet.

Cammalleri hasn't exactly played like himself this season. So far, Cammalleri has nine goals and 13 assists for 22 points. He has a $6 million cap hit until the 2014-15 season.



Here is what the total trade comprises.


This trade may have killed all Jarome Iginla trade talk for the time being. Cammalleri could have been brought in to help improve the Iginla line.

The Canadiens have not played well as a whole so this Cammalleri trade could be the start of some major changes.

Rene Bourque is an interesting piece as he could fit better in Montreal.
