new players thanks to the lockout?
 
I'm not sure if this has been discussed

but the two new players, Samsonov and Johnson might have landed in Montreal thanks to the lockout.

During the lockout, Samsonov played with Kovalev and Souray played with Johnson.

I could bet that Souray and Kovalev recommended these players to Gainey and he looked into it and decided it would be a good addition.

Well the way i see it... samsonov wouldn't be a ufa if it wasn't for the new CBA and Johnson would have cost more than a 4th round draft pick before the lock out so yeah i guess the lock out have something to do with those guys been here... :)

true
didnt think of it that way...

but what i meant was since there was a lockout, it gave an oppertunity for players to play with other linemates and that I think was a huge advantage which landed samsonov and johnson
