You missed the point of the rumor, the rumor (and it's just that a rumor) is that the Habs have contacted the Mooseheads to let them know they aren't getting their 20 year old defensemen back.

The Mooseheads (owned by ex Hab Bobby Smith) can start looking for another overager if they know Villeneuve wont be back. I'm sure they would be grateful to know as soon as possible since the team is off to a slow start as well.

Who knows if it's true or not, we'll find out soon enough. If it is, don't expect Villeneuve back in the Q.
