2. Habs will be a good team but not built for the playoffs, according to the ex BJ GM, who I don't put any faith in because he is a bad GM.
3. Don Lever says Grabovski needs a lot of work because lacking skill without the puck. They don't think he can be Leafs 2nd line centre.
4. Tanguay is soft (lacking mental toughness) and if he was better, he'd still be in Calgary. They stressed that only 1 goal in 13 playoff games and barely mentioned the 8 assists as well.
5. Gainey didn't want the Sundin circus to continue into the pre-season and Lang is just a temporary fix for their need for a RH shot. Gainey may still persue him.
Kypreos also said he doesn't think the acquistion of Robert Lang meant that the Canadiens were done with their pursuit of Mats Sundin, and, in fact, when asked where they thought Sundin would end up (and all thought he would play rather then retire) Mike Brophy said Montreal.
