Gordie Howe coming to Montreal for signing?

Hockey/Inside Out said he would be coming on march 24th, and more news would be announced, but nothing else has been publicized. Can someone please give me more info including price? Thanks.

Edit: he's coming for an autograph session. Have to clarify for the smarta** posts below.

He's a bit old but he'd be better than Campoli (even if he's not a def)

Howe couldn't play in today's game. he would get suspended in the first five minutes with his dirty elbows.

We better not overpay, PG will probably sign him to a 7 year 6 mill deal that will screw us for life.

Finally, a big, no-nonsense wingman to play with Pleks

It may interest you to know that Gordie Howe DID play several games at defense. It occurred many years ago (of course), when Ned Harkness was coach of the Red Wings. Look it up. here's another bit of trivia for you: He used a flat-bladed stick and although he was a right wing with a right-handed shot he occasionally switched hands and shot left to get a better angle.

Some of you are crazy if you think we actually have a chance of signing a proven UFA like Howe. Howe is a guy who wants to win, he's gonna go somewhere where he thinks he has a shot.

Ask Ted Lindsey Howe's former friend and team member What he thinks of Gordie.Ted's answer will be very short.Ted has spoken to Gordie once in the last 40 yrs.

Well to be fair with the smartasses, your title is kinda misleading and troll-friendly...
