Bergevin not going to add anything else. Habs management will evaluate Galchenyuk together, including coaching staff. Gally will make the Habs if they believe he can A. contribute enough in the NHL and B. if it will benefit Galchenyuk and not hinder him. Thus, its all up to Galchenyuk to show he is both NHL ready and mature enough to deal with ups and downs of the NHL.

Therrien stressed same things he did before lockout. Basically, that the Habs will focus on being hard on the puck (probably both forecheck and backcheck) and that they will not just sit back and trap. I like this idea, but the only problem I have with it is how many injuries will probably occur. We dont have THAT much depth. Third and fourth lines will be pivotal to the success of the team.

Therrien also said that because every team has same time frame to prepare team there are no excuses. He stated that the team will be ready for the first game.

Molson stated that he was satisfied with the outcome of the lockout and that the loss of hockey was so huge because its so intertwined with the culture of Montreal.

Molson said he thought Bettman "did as best as he could given he had to satisfy big markets, medium markets and small markets."
What a pointless press conference !!! Habs management didn't give us any answers.
Bergevin could not answer questions about contracts because he didn't read the new CBA, Ok fine so why not wait 2 more days before doing the press conference. Molson don't want to tell what he will do to thanks the fan He should start by abolishing the fees they are charging to fans who are on the waiting list to have season tickets that would be a good way to thank loyalty. People are waiting 10 years to have those. Therrien saying about his system that he want to play tough Good system.
