With the recent injuries on the canadiens blueline of Francis Boullion who status for the start of the Montreal Canadiens’ training camp next month is still up in the air and Mark Striet.
Tsn.ca and The Montreal Gazette report that Montreals Francis Bouillon experienced pain in his knee last week when he started skating and will fly to Vail, Colorado, to be examined by a doctor.
Also reported defenceman Mark Streit is suffering from tendinitis in his knees, which may be the result of too much time on the stationary bike.
According to tsn.ca the Habs may have some trouble on the blueline to start the season as Francis Boullion, as reported earlier, will fly to Colorado to possibly have knee surgery after he experienced pain in his knee when he started skating.
The Canadiens appear to be finished retooling their roster, after signing UFA Sergei Samsonov and trading Mike Johnson during the offseason.
According to RDS.CA (http://www.rds.ca/canadien/chroniques/209629.html) Francis Buillon is leaving for Colorado tommorow to have his left knee examined.
According to a Montreal radio station called the Team 990 and also reported by rumoursnhl.blogspot.com the San Jose Sharks and Montreal Canadiens may complete a deal soon. Here’s the proposed trade
The Habs roster, assuming that noone does better or worse this season, is upgraded 37 points. Now, assuming that people are going to improve over last season, due to chemistry and maturity, Montreal will be a major contender for the cup this year. Just imagine how many games those 37 points could have swayed in the Habs favour last season.
According to a the Team990 radio station in Montreal, the Habs apparently offered Alexander Perezhogin, Andrei Markov and a 1st round pick to San Jose for center Patrick Marleau.
Ok….this is only my second post, and for my first I forgot to mention some of my thoughts and there were a few comments left that encompassed the things I left out. This time I will try to be more selective with my thoughts.
Now that Daniel Briere is a 5 million man seems like he is now all a sudden on the market. Montreal, Los Angeles and Atlanta are among the teams in the mix. Could it be that a possible trade can be made by Bob to aquire the speedy foward.
Here’s some good promising news for Habs fans. No it’s not some big signing or wild trade rumour. According to a report on Sprotsnet.ca, the independant scouting service “The Red Line Report”, rated the Habs #2, behind only Chicago as having done the best at the ’06 draft.
Ladies and Gents, the dust has settled for the Habs this off-season. With the exception of Ryder who will be signed within the next 2 weeks, one way or another, the roster is set. Assuming that Gainey does not pull off a trade involving Abby anytime soon, which could involve multiple players, these are the Montreal Canadiens we will see opening night.
