Perezhogin officially gone.

He signs in Russia for 1.7 million per year.

Meehan confirmed it.

Well, open up a roster spot for someone more deserving.

Man, this hurts. I don't think that Perez was ever going to be a big scoring threat but he was valuable as a two-way forward. Now with Bonk, Perez and likely Johnson gone, our third line will have to be completely rebuilt.

If there's a reason why Russian teams are going bankrupt, this is it. Good Luck to Perezhogin in the future. He obviously didn't want to play in the NHL.

We can knock on the guy all we want, but fact of the matter is that this move makes sense for him.

Why would he risk going back to a team whose coach has lost faith in him?

The NHL doesn't have the same significance to a European as it does to a Canadian. We have to understand that. If the guy can play closer to home and make more money, who are we to judge that decision?

(I'll use this as another opportunity to take a jab at Carbo: if he had utilized his assets properly and understood that he had the players to play a more offensive Sabres-like style, maybe Perezhogin would have been able to make his niche by now...it's too bad)

I hope Carbonneau doesn't screw up Kostitsyn's confidence too.

Man is it tough to play in Montreal...

I like Guy Carbonneau, but this is starting to eerily remind me of the Mario Tremblay regime where any players he didn't like were shipped off for basically nothing. It was that era that lead to our decade long and counting slump.

Perezhogin has major talent. Guy doesn't like talent, he likes lunch pail guys with limited talent because he loves himself. The truth is a team full of Guy Carbonneaus will work hard but they won't be fun to watch and they won't win either.

Sorry to see you go Alex. Bob, be careful how much power you allow Guy to have...

You really think that is what's gonna happen?

Anyway, I won't miss him that much. I've always questioned what he brought to the team and I was constantly told how "great" he was suppose to be. This will just open up a spot for a youngster or an UFA.

I was worried about Andrei having a tough time finding his place on the team for a while too. But there were some encouraging signs that Carbo is doing a decent job with AK from the past season. Although there were a number of occassions when various decisions made by Carbo seemed to me to be unusual/wrong/confusing/frustrating, I have to give him credit for a couple of things he did with Andrei. The game in Nashville, Kost made a bad turnover and I was expecting him to be benched for the period but Carbo put him back out there on the 1st line. Also, in the last game when we needed a goal, wasn't Kost on the ice then too? Regardless of what happened earlier in the season as far as AK and Carbo are concerned, the coach showed some confidence in a young player towards the end and the young player kept his end of the deal and played well and produced. While there are several things I'm curious to see if Carbo does differently next year, so far (at least since his latest callup) I'm impressed by how he has handled AK.

On the topic at hand though, it's a shame to see Pez go now. We never saw the best out of him with the Habs and it's a shame. Various reasons why that is but I won't go into them. There is still a fair amount of un-tapped potential in him but maybe with the opportunities at hand it would be tougher for him to reach that potential where he has been the past 2 years. I do hope he does well for himself back in Russia and finds his game and plays to the ability he believes he can. Hopefully I'll get to see him some more on the international scene in the near future. Good luck Pez

People that think this is about asset mismanagement need to look at only one thing. In the first half, and for a good portion of last year too, AP was taking a lot of lazy penalties. Stick infractions, hooking, holding, obstruction, etc. He wasn't getting the message. His penalty minutes dropped this year only when his icetime was taken away from him.

I'm disappointed things haven't worked out. He is a talented player. He's not an elite player though, and should be replaceable.

I liked Perezhogin and though he could become a very good offensive player with time.
At least, he is replaceable!

Wow. Huge over-rating. The guy NEVER achieved in any league what you wrote. Ever. He was an ok player, something we have tons of.

Not a big loss. But not surprised: he didn't have the coyones to stay.

We've seen hundreds of prospects and suspects go by this organisation over the last 40 years. He's now a suspect. Another one. Who cares. Bring me players who want to play here instead of close to his mommy.

Do the Habs retain his NHL rights or he become an UFA?

Perez is skilled and I can't blame him taking the cash, especially considering he was never put in the proper offensive role on the team and would not make near this next season.

I know I am in the minority but I am disappointed to see him go.

They retain the rights until he was supposed to be UFA but someone who knows the CBA better could help you more precisely.

Not a big deal. We have others guys to fill the void. He would never get 1.7M from Gainey.

We have guys who can fill the role but I'm a bit disapointed with this, was hoping to get Perezhogin back.

by, replaceable one. You were useful this season and showed flashes of creativity, but in the end you chickened out and went home to a lesser league.

good ridence and don't let the door hit you on the way out.

looks like we have a good spot for Kost now for sure

And a few others....
