Maxime Crépeau

TAM, DP, GA, and all that nonsensical alphabet soup of silly rules. Why do Canadians still support MLS? Crepeau should be signed like any other player in the world w/o some funky letters attached. Jesus Goddamn Fucking Christ, or I guess Canadians say Tabernak!

Is this tweet from the same guy who said Smits was coming to Montreal a couple weeks back??

Smits like John Smits? (And that must have been 4 years ago)

If you want to say Simon Thomas? This is the guy who shut down Thomas to the Impact. 

And, I think he only went with it publicly because Harjournalist tweeted the information before and it was the same info he had. 

You have 2 journalists covering both teams involved confirming the trade, I think that it's safe to say that the deal will happen.

Martineau is a solid journalist. Any journalist will get some information wrong sometimes because of the nature of working with sources but Martineau is probably the most reliable journalist in Montreal for being the first guy to report things that will subsequently happen.

The two have very different styles (and obviously Har covers more women's football stuff); I've found both to be very reliable and trustworthy. Both hardworking.

Going with what MDS suggested earlier, I'm guessing that one more domestic keeper will join this group, so the club gets to free up an international spot for an outfield position (I don't believe Marinovic was on a green card while in Vancouver).

Confirmed. But it looks like he will be battling MacMath for the starting spot. MacMath was one of the better young goalies in the league a couple years back before he got stuck behind Tim Howard in Colorado. On paper now it looks like Crepeau will be #2 in Vancouver.

Hope he tries to battle for the #1 spot in Vancouver more than he did in Montreal.

I'm sure they told him he'll have a chance at winning that #1 spot, the whole point of him leaving Montreal was to get a shot at being an MLS #1

Well he was traded, it’s not like they had to convince him.

He was traded because he went to the Impact and demanded to be in order to compete for a #1 spot.
