I hope Pacioretty is untouchable unless it is for Malkin, Ovechkin or Crosby.

I think he said Smolinski was good last season, but Lang brings a lot more offense.

The reporter asked what move he was most proud of and he said it was signing Carbo and praised about his leadership, etc.

Please keep paraphrasing guys, I can't tune in to the press-conference unfortunately.

lol! Anything about getting Ryder back and packaging him with Halak and a 2nd for the flavour of the week?

I'm more confused than I was before that PC. No negos with the UFAs yet, young guns are not safe, planning at least for the next 2 years but thinking about the next three months. I feel safe with Bob at the wheels, but his thoughts are never clear.

No no, he just can't pronounce plafond ''salarial'' (salary cap in french) and always calls it the plafond ''céréal'' for some reason, the cereal cap.

Andie B is on the team 990, she says she asked Gainey today which UFAs were his priority to re-sign and Gainey did mention Komisarek despite being reluctant to answer. She also says that Gainey added it's not a hard policy to not negotiate in season.

Honestly, the french version of Gainey's PC are never clear since it's not his 1st language, so are you guys surprised it sounded mixed up a bit? l always look to his english version (which I would bet would be on Habs I/O later) for the real scoop.

Good. This team doesn't need one. Some small upgrades, IMO, will suffice.

Is there really a possibility of us losing Mike at the end of this season?
