Bob Gainey

There is one way to measure the impact thus far Bob has had on the Habs. It should be obvious that under his watch the team has significantly improved. Bob took over the team in may 2003, and has only had 2 working seasons with which to place his mark. One only has to look at what he inherited compared to what he has today.

Souray Requested to be TRADED!!!

Sources say on the Team 990 Sports Rage, Gabriel Morency more specifically, that Souray wants out of Montreal. Also Gainey has agreed to grant this request from the D-man. One particular reason for this request is obviously for Souray getting closer to his daughter who lives in L.A. with his ex-wife. Detroit for now would be a most logical destination maybe in a package deal with Abby. Never say Never with Gainey!

Samsonov a Hab !!

Bob Gainey was busy today as he made 4 moves which I believe will improve the club substantially. TSN.ca reports that Gainey has signed UFA Sergei Samsonov, re-signed RFA David Abeisher, Picked up Mike Johnson from Phoenix and dealt Zednik to Washington.

Habs Rant

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. And with plenty of wiggle room left within the salary cap, there’s money to spend — for the right player, added the GM.

RDS.ca: Gainey still shopping

According to RDS.ca (http://www.rds.ca/canadien/chroniques/208305.html) this afternoon, Gainey is not done shopping in the free agency. Gainey told the press he was still looking for an offensive player.

Gainey IS still looking!

I found this on CJAD web site TODAY!

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.”

Habs looling for Samsonov

TheFourthPeriod report that the Habs are looking for Samsonov along with the Red Wings.

Why? No idea! Samsonov is not a huge guy like Bertuzzi or Shanahan.

Take it for what it worth…

Lindros to Habs?

Acording to Detroit Sports Radio, Gainey is now focusing on bringing in Eric Lindros to Montreal, after being spurned by Shannahan. — I don’t know about this one, but that’s what they said.
