Canadiens have "another priority", then Tanguay

Tanguay's agent said he met with Gainey and was told the Canadiens have another priority currently, and then they can talk about Alex Tanguay. Says there hasn't been any indication if the Canadiens are interested in retaining him, or anything.

Komisarek? Kovalev? Koivu? New owner? New coaching staff? A trade?

It's slightly interesting during the slow season anyway!

Better not be the ownership ****. It'd suck so much if it screws with hockey affairs.

Doesn't mean there's only 1 other priority. However, I doubt it has to do with ownership otherwise we'd still have no coach.

My guess is it's Komi

That seems kind of weird. I can't imagine Tanguay being pleased with hearing "sorry, we have another priority. When we settle that we'll talk to you." Hopefully its concerning ownership, because if Gainey is talking about another player then that is kind of a slap in the face to Tanguay.

Well the positive news is that Tanguay is still interested to play for the Habs

It's sounds like a rather undiplomatic slant when they write it like that. I have a hard time believing that Gainey himself would be quite so undiplomatic. I hope Tanguay doesn't take it with the same slant; I'd like to see him back for a full, healthy season. (And many more beyond).

I doubt it's ownership. If it is, everybody can just go **** themselves.

Either the team doesn't want Tanguay back or they plan on taking on a lot of salary soon (whether through trade or re-signings) and don't want to commit to him if it ties their hands.

That they haven't even discussed their intentions with his agent yet makes me think they aren't interested in bringing him back. I can't imagine Gainey is so busy in dealing with the other free agents he can't talk to Tanguay.

I'm sure Gainey can do more than one thing at a time so I doubt it's another player signing. If it is, then it's definitely a slap in the face to Tanguay.

It has to be the ownership issue, which I hope gets settled in the next 24 hours.

Can't see it being anything else but Komisarek or the ownership situation...Komisarek is the #1 UFA priority in terms of the Habs current UFA's to be.

I wouldn't believe everything that an agent says. Maybe just a little ploy to drum up some support for his client.

Gainey was always polite and respectful with his players. I really do not see him telling to Alex Tanguay "Sorry, but we think this other player is more important to sign so we're talk to you after him".

Most likely it was "We want to talk but we'll wait till the sale is done. Then we will talk will everyone".

Didn't Jacques Martin have meetings with all of the staff this week about their future. So isn't it possible that Gainey is waiting for Martin to suggest what he wants to do with the team, More defenseman, more forwards. Etc. does anyone else think that this could be it?
