Just moments ago it was announced that Bruno Gervais was traded to Tampa Bay for future considerations.
It's bittersweet for me, as the 2003 draft pick was one of my first interviews as a member of the Blog Box. He is known for his wild sense of humor and as a great guy in the locker room. Unfortunately, his defensive shortcomings and contract status (Restricted Free Agent) have made this the time for him to move on.
In Tampa Bay, Gervais will be reunited with former Islanders Nate Thompson, Dwayne Roloson, and Sean Bergenheim.
I wish him success with his new team. 'Bonne Chance!' to the Quebec native.
