It doesn't seem like Lombardi has any designs on moving him (that's not to say he couldn't be had if the right deal came along).
And right now, he's the number 1 centre barring any more moves (moves which many anticipate will happen). As for who he'll be playing with, that's anyone's guess. If he does wind up on the top line, he could be playing with Frolov and Cammy or Brown, the three players with the most experience who would be the logical choices to fill out the remaining two slots on the #1 unit.
SOURAY DENIES TRADE RUMOURS. MONTREAL GAZETTE: Dave Stubbs reports Canadiens defenseman Sheldon Souray is denying reports that he's requested a trade. "These 'confirmed' reports about me asking for a trade?" Souray said yesterday. "I've never seen (Canadiens general manager) Bob Gainey confirm them, and I've not been called, nor has my agent, to confirm them." Souray professed his love of playing in Montreal and said he hopes to be a part of the club's long-term plans. Spector's Note: If Souray does depart Montreal, it'll be because the team couldn't re-sign him, not because of family issues.
