Ah yes, the annual CKAC UFA wet dream. They will get nobody. Not after this last week, that's for sure.

Dupuis is about to resign. Guerin is the annual CKAC choice and he never agreed to a trade here or listened to an offer when he was free so why would that change. Briere's agent Pat Brisson has gone on CKAC and said he has councelled all his players to stay out of montreal until their last contract because they could earn more elsewhere and not have their careers destroyed by the pressure (on the air with Villeneuve a couple weeks back, then when he hung up, Villeneuve called him a quebec hater). Don Meehan is Drury's agent (and sheldon's ) and was quoted in the Toronto star yesterday (in regards to the kovalev mess) that he has advised all his players that Montreal was not an optimal environment (in other words, stay away) for next year. Chris Phillips will not come here unless they overpay. Montreal is getting nobody. They will get what they got this year, the last remaining UFA who wasn't wanted anywhere and they will still have to overpay. Why? Taxes, French, Press and bad team.
Yikes...if all this is true that doesn't exactly make me feel confident in getting some UFA's to save us next year.

Looks like the kids are going to have to be alright...
