Vancouver and Montreal are up to something… No really good leaks yet as to the exact players, but something is in the works.
Yesterday was a very busy day for the two. Steve Tambellini of the Canucks and Bob Gainey of the Canadiens met at the Manitoba Moose-Hamilton Bulldogs game (the clubs respective farm teams) and at the Canucks-Flames games there were a total of 8 (count them… 8!) Montreal scouts in attendance. Both these have been confirmed (radio for source… sorry, no link).

Canada just won gold, 5-0 over the ‘dominant’, ‘powerhouse’ Russians. The win didn’t surprise me. Canada’s strong, gritty play didn’t surprise me. It was all the doubting that people did of Canada that confused me. Watching the tournament, a couple of people on this board should be very excited about who is coming up from the minors.

In light of Patrick Elias’ return General Manager Lou Lamoriello is facing cap issues so he has decided to put future hall of famer Alexander Mogilny on waivers
In a somewhat surprising move, the Montreal Canadiens sent down young prospect Alexander Perezhogin to Hamilton, and called back fowards Andrei Kostitsyn, Jonathan Ferland and defenseman Jean-Philippe Côté, leading everybody to believe that something’s about to happen in Montreal…
After seeing highlights of the 4-1 loss against the St- Louis Blues, I think it’s inevitable that a change is needed for Vancouver. Either they need better defence, better offence or better goaltending.
