To me, this sounds like sidestepping the issue. Doesn't sound like the plan is to keep him. But things can change. Maybe they let him go and try for a different free agent??
Does anybody know the answer to this?
If you let a UFA walk, does the team receive a compensantory pick??
All that sounds like is Gainey talking in circles to avoid the question. That's typical Gainey.
I would agree with whoever stated that Kovalev resigning with the Habs depends on circumstances: how he plays down the stretch and in the playoffs, what the looks of the CBA are, etcetera.
