Trade Deadline: So It Begins...

The trade deadline may only be three weeks away, but one team in the east has already launched itself into the frenzy.

The Montreal Canadiens have acquired defenseman Mathieu Schneider from the Atlanta Thrashers in exchange for draft picks.

Details are limited up to this point. But rumor has it that the Habs gave up second- and third-round draft picks for Schneider.

The move boosts the Canadiens questionable defensive line by adding a veteran presence. However, Schneider has certainly seen better days and is nearing the end of his career.
