Gainey IS still looking!

I found this on CJAD web site TODAY!

Canadiens GM Bob Gainey hasn’t given up on upgrading his team through free agency. Gainey confirming to CJAD’s Abe Hefter that although the Habs lost out on the Brendan Shanahan sweepstakes, he believes there’s talent remaining out there that could help the Canadiens, up front. Gainey, at the Martin Lapointe Arena to watch the prospects take to the ice, says it became pretty clear that unrestricted free agent economics would prevent the Canadiens from signing more than one player.

Petr Sykora??? Show the real link…

Quote: “tsn.ca reports that the rumors circulating between the habs and Petr Sykora are intensifying, and that he might end up being a hab next season. Sykora is a solid 20 goal, 50 point scorer, and he should come in handy as a replacement of the no-longer Montreal Canadien, Jan Bulis.
Rumors are also starting to come up when the name of Sergei Samsonov is mentioned. He would be a perfect fit as a left-winger on that montreal 2nd line, but it seems as though the Detroit Red Wings are also interested.”
