Trade Notes:

– The 57th and 117th selections were traded to Edmonton in exchange for Jeff Petry.

– Pick 147 was traded to Florida last year for Mike Weaver.

– Pick 131 was acquired from Colorado as part of the Daniel Briere – P-A Parenteau swap.

– Although the Habs acquired Anaheim’s conditional fifth round pick in exchange for Louis Leblanc, the conditions (15 NHL GP) were not met.  As a result, the Ducks keep the selection.
