"They were depressing times last year, but I had a good summer, spent time with Vali and things got better. When I have her with me, everything else in the world kind of goes away. To have her for (2 1/2 weeks at) the start of the season was a lot of motivation for me. I seem to play my best when she's around."
In that case, expect a productive December. Souray will have Valentina with him for 10 days next month. He's hoping to pick her up in New York on Dec. 7, when the Canadiens play the Islanders on Long Island.
"If it works out, she'll fly back to Montreal on our charter," he said. "But I'll have to change my flight routine a bit. Her mom would kill me if she went home and started talking about poker."
