Rumor on Saku Koivu! / News On José Théodore
There is a rumor running in Montreal right now that Canadiens GM Bob Gainey is looking for a centerman in the unrestricted free agent market.
Yvon Pedneault, a well known journalist on the french version of TSN is saying that Bob Gainey is backing off in signing Saku Koivu for the next few years. Despite his talent, heart and courage they don’t think he can stay healthy for a long enough period after all his injuries and disease since the start of his career. Koivu will be an unrestricted free agent next year and they don’t want to buy his free agency in singing him to a long term contract.
The Habs are looking for a big talented centerman to size up their team and there’s a lot of talent available right now in the unrestricted free agents list.

I was on St. Laurent tonight and I bumped into Jose Theodore. He said that yes he will be returning to the Montreal Canadiens and that he did vote in favor of the CBA in todays vote. So that is one player that you won’t have to worry about during the free agency period.
GO HABS GO!
