I can't imagine Timmins would announce he was stepping down the day before a draft. I imagine this is more of a re-stating of the drafting philosophy and expectations.

They just had their final brain storming session at his Ottawa home and probably is addressing the media to let them know they are ready and prepared for the draft and that they will be drafting the best player available and if a scenario arises for them to move up the draft they will look into it.

Just a briefing, nothing more.

This would come from Gainey, and we would already know of it as well through the NHL.

If it's something huge, it would have to be Bob announcing it.

Just seems odd to hold a presser, unless there was something to announce. Especially when we are picking 25th. Don't remember us making one last year.

Probably just trying to fill a bunch of media requests at one time. I'm sure he's in pretty high demand right now and it would surely save a lot of time to do all his interviews at one time, then get back to work.

It's not like it's a huge press conference. It's a small "point de presse". This is an event in which the organisation talks a little bit about the draft. The habs even called it "their annual press point" for the draft. It's nothing huge...

BTW, it's 4PM, why does ckac has Bergeron coming on air next??? ***!
