7thplayer.com's Montreal Canadiens Off-Season Preview

In light of tonight's draft and part of our 30 teams in 30 days feature, we bring to you the Habs off-season preview:

Itís a look at the Canadiens past campaign as well as identifying team needs and priorities going into the summer. Most Habs fans probably already know this stuff and it is simply an overview of the situation.

We hope you enjoy!

Comments and feedback are always welcome!

By the way we will be live blogging in regards to the NHL draft tonight. Here is the link for those interested:

I see the team improving by benefits from within. I see Eller jumping up next year into a prominent player, Weber could blossom also. Desharnais could outscore Plekanec if given good chance

maybe a bit better flow in the writing (if you'd like some constructive critciism ) seemed kinda jumpy, otherwise good article

It's a good recap piece. Pretty rational on Gomez. Doesn't speculate much on what the Habs might do in the off-season, but I don't fault it for that -- that's such a crapshoot for a team that has plenty of cap space and no major holes.

But didn't Timmins pick Andrei Kostitsyn -- an European skater in the first round?

Gomez could also win the Ted Lindsay Award next year

Thanks for the feedback!

As for your second question, quoting the article:
'With the exception of Belorussian winger Andrei Kostitsyn, the head scout Trevor Timmins (joined the team in 2002) has never picked a European skater in the first round'
