The Montreal Canadiens swapped young left wingers with the Arizona Coyotes over the weekend. The Coyotes received former third overall pick Alex Galchenyuk and the Canadiens got Max Domi in return.
Canadiens fans took to Twitter over the weekend to voice their displeasure, some fans want Bergevin fired and some fans have a pretty good sense of humour about the trade.

Can’t wait for all the #habs fanboys to see the ‘positive’ in this trade.
This should be hilarious.
Let me guess: Galchenyuk had ‘attitude’ problems’ – team is better off w/out him.

tell me how you manage to trade subban, sergachev and galchenyuk in 3 CONSECUTIVE years and manage to keep your job. bergevin’s made this team the laughing stock of the league, time to smarten up and get better management.

How the hell did Bergevin manage to trade Subban, Sergachev, and Galchenyuk without getting a centre back? 😂

Let’s put it straight for Bergevin. From trading Subban for Weber. From giving Alzner a 5 year deal. From giving Price 10.5M a year. From giving Andrew Shaw a 6 year deal. From trading Galchenyuk for Max Domi. Yup, he’s not my GM. Thank god. 😂

No actually, it’s really hard to understand.
number 1 team need: 1st line center
number 1 player asset to trade: Galchenyuk
anndddd Bergevin trades him for a middle 6 winger… https://t.co/1VgrFW2pb0

Maybe Galchenyuk will be better at center than centre

Subban, Eller, Sergachev, Markov and now Galchenyuk are all gone. Marc Bergevin made his mark in this team and singlehandedly ruined this team and destroyed any further interest I had. What an absolute joke. Bergevin should be ashamed and #Habs fans should be embarrassed.

Galchenyuk + Sergachev + Subban for Domi + Drouin + Weber doesn’t really look so great.

If Alex Galchenyuk succeeds at C in Arizona, there will be a which hunt for Marc Bergevin in Montreal. Even more so then there is now.

Don’t fall in love, folks. Never fall in love. #Galchenyuk

With the NHL Entry Draft this weekend and the free agent market opening up the weekend after that, things are going to get a lot more interesting for the Habs this summer. Mr. Bergevin may want to stay off of social media for a while.
