Anyway I don't have any fear in Montreal signing Krejci or Kessel to offer sheets. First Montreal has a hard time signing any free agents to start with and offer sheets are like free agents they have a choice of which ones to accept and not accept, do you think these guys want to play in Montreal?

Chiarelli is smart enough to do what he did with Wideman last year if he canít sign Kessel or Krejci before July 1st and thatís take the players to arbitration. Players going to arbitration are not allowed to sign offer sheets and the team gets an extra 20 something days to sign these players before arbitration even happens. Last year we signed Wideman before arbitration so it was a nice strategy.

Did you think Chara would have left a powerfull Ottawa team for a crappy Boston couple of years ago?

If the Bruins offer say 4 million to Kessel and an offer sheet comes in for him at 6 million you really think he and his agent won't accept it because it's Montreal?
