  • Met with Donny Mehan in Toronto for PK yesterday. When asked about PK Getting traded, Bergevin cut the question and said "No no no, I don't even think about PK getting traded. Won't happen
  • Said that Gomez wasn't a distraction, was all done for the Habs future and the fact that they need capspace next year. Won't play in Europe cause they are sending him home so he doesn't get injured, which would make it unable to buyout his contract next year
You can burry the first $900k of a contract in the minors, but everything over that counts. So they're essentially assigning him to the minors but not playing him there.
