Bergevin not going to add anything else. Habs management will evaluate Galchenyuk together, including coaching staff. Gally will make the Habs if they believe he can A. contribute enough in the NHL and B. if it will benefit Galchenyuk and not hinder him. Thus, its all up to Galchenyuk to show he is both NHL ready and mature enough to deal with ups and downs of the NHL.

Therrien stressed same things he did before lockout. Basically, that the Habs will focus on being hard on the puck (probably both forecheck and backcheck) and that they will not just sit back and trap. I like this idea, but the only problem I have with it is how many injuries will probably occur. We dont have THAT much depth. Third and fourth lines will be pivotal to the success of the team.

Therrien also said that because every team has same time frame to prepare team there are no excuses. He stated that the team will be ready for the first game.

Molson stated that he was satisfied with the outcome of the lockout and that the loss of hockey was so huge because its so intertwined with the culture of Montreal.

Molson said he thought Bettman "did as best as he could given he had to satisfy big markets, medium markets and small markets."
What a pointless press conference !!! Habs management didn't give us any answers.
Bergevin could not answer questions about contracts because he didn't read the new CBA, Ok fine so why not wait 2 more days before doing the press conference. Molson don't want to tell what he will do to thanks the fan He should start by abolishing the fees they are charging to fans who are on the waiting list to have season tickets that would be a good way to thank loyalty. People are waiting 10 years to have those. Therrien saying about his system that he want to play tough Good system.

I could have predicted that.

The PC is mostly to get in front of the media instead of having 40 interviews with the same questions...get the heat out of the way("fans" questions) and move on.

Excellent move.

Will this also apply to 19 and 20 year-olds?

They say it is an account on your future season tickets but if for any reason one year you don't pay the account fee you are out he list and they don't reimburse previous account you did up to to that day. So you can pay for 10 years and never have season tickets if you move somewhere else say L.A. and you want to be out of the list you won't be reimburse.

Brisebois has the big brother coach role doesn't he? I wonder if he could take Galchy in.

Hockey is so big in Montreal that people are still willing to wait and pay. Season tickets are a family heirloom.

Serious note: Woulden't be surprised if he moved in with Josh Gorges. Seems like the kind of thing Gorges would accept doing. In fact, IIRC, he did it with Gallagher recently.

After all, we all know that Gorges is a great leader ever since his days as Captain of the Kelowna Rockets

Alex Sr said in this article a few months ago that the family would move to Montreal once he made the team anyway:

Good. We could use a man with the Soviet experience in Quebec's developmental hockey system.

If Brisebois is the "big brother coach" don t you think he would be on the road a lot visiting our prospects outside of Montreal? Wouldn't it be best to have someone at home in Montreal to watch over him?

Now that the presser is over, I think we can take the various discussions (Galchenyuk, Gomez, tickets) to their appropriate threads.
