As for Ranford, I'd lay off his quote in the article. Maybe he didn't quite say the right thing, but with his numbers, I'm sure he'll get multiple invites. Don't blame him for thinking Montreal isn't the best fit. There's a huge logjam on the wings in Hamilton, and a team need is for size, not a 5'10" winger, so he may not see an opportunity for himself here.
I would say size on the wings is a very low priority for the Canadiens.
With Cole, Paccioretty, Bourque, Prust, Moen, Armstrong and possibly Eller, they are quite bulky on the wings.
