In this instance, I'm sure they just notified the agent or whatever is the official procedure. No need to bring him to Montreal. He was a scratch often in Hamilton so it's not like this was a shock.

When Gainey decided not to re-sign Koivu, I'm sure they had a 1-1 conversation, but releasing a bust prospect shouldn't require much sentiment.
