Renaud Lavoie indicated yesterday that all details concerning schedules/camp etc.. should be released today. Could this be the way it will be done ?

Finally some activity! Looking forward to it. I don't expect anything earth-shattering, but I'm happy nonetheless we're hearing the staff and owners talk about the upcoming season.

They can't use compliance buyouts yet, though. I guess they could use a good ol' regular buyout for him though.

There would be riots for those tickets. Not to mention scalpers getting some and selling them.

There were only certain times when you could even use the good ol' regular buyouts, though... the two weeks before July 1st and then later if you had an arbitration settlement. Both of those windows came and went before the last CBA expired. There probably isn't any reopening at all, even of the old fashioned buyout type, prior to this new season.

(And there needn't be, teams are being allowed to go ahead at the $70.2M cap max that was there at the end of last season, so they ought to have planned their rosters and executed their old-fashioned buyouts last summer based on that).

I hope he won't go overboard with the hyperbole but again, he can't come out and say "Ehhhh, we're ******".

I hope Molson will have some restrain on the hype and respect his fanbase's intelligence. His arena will be full no matter.

Teams cant talk to players yet, so I assume no deals can be done.

This will be a welcome back meeting.
Molson will once again state he will spare NO expense to get the Habs back to the top ( buy outs + top spending caps ) and a carte blanche to MB to do any deal on earth. MT to get full power to rule the team as he sees fit.
Habs still need time to fix the sinking ship. not just plug the holes but to rebuild from the hull up. Timmons must get the Habs brand new engines MB needs 6 months to fix the contracts + money problems. MT needs 6 months to fix the on-ice effort every night.

Sounds about right. Let's just forward this to the media and cancel the useless press conference this afternoon.

That the Canadiens have acquired Sean Kuraly from the San Jose Sharks to play center with Alex Galchenyuk in the 4th line like in the WJC. Woooohooooo!

-Habs cant talk to Subban yet so dont expect a signing

-Buyouts only start this summer so dont expect Gomez to get bought out

Molson will apologize to all fans for the Lockout,Marc Bergevin will answer the 100 journalists who will ask about subban's contract and Michel Therrien will be asked if Galchenyuk will start the season in Montreal.

Still exited that we're finally talking about Hockey and our Habs

Actually it's been confirmed that agents and GMs can talk but no contracts can be signed yet.

Change in policy as of this morning from league source. GMs are permitted to talk to agents on terms but not sign until ratified.

Drouin is probably going top 3 now... ok maybe top 4.

Probably just to talk about the schedule/camp. We got a memo at work from M. Molson talking about when we will get our season ticket etc. Will let you know if they send the calendar to the business first!
