If we sign a new UFA, I see us going after a character player to replace guys like Sundstrom or Bulis. Not a big name.
Because the 2 aforementionned players will not be snipers next season. Perezhogin whiffed on an easy one timer, he's still got to prove himself as a goal scorer. As for the rookie, well...he'll be a rookie.
Montreal needs one offensive forward, a big one. Bob knows this but he's not going to tell the press about it. Not his style.
