Thats for sure. But I think the important thing in this, is that it shows that BG is not affraid to got get players. And were not talking about 4th line players when you think of Bonk and Kovalev. So I think there is a good chance to see some great moves by BG during the off season!
Personally, I have the sense that Gainey has given up on Alex Kovalev and has another name in mind to sign for our top line. Demitra, Kariya, Recchi, Shanahan, Bondra, Hull, Palffy, Murray, Rolston, Deadmarsh, Selanne, Lindros??? Who knows?
Or maybe Gainey's just chilling out, confident that one of his great stable of rookies is strong enough to make an impact on one of the top lines. Kastsitsyn will be here along with our other favourites - Chipchura, Higgins, Plekanec, and Hossa.
Whatever happens, Gainey seems so calm and well organized that I can rest assured as a Habs fan that something good will come before too long.
