GOMEZ & GIONTA NOT GETTING HELP

Oct 19th, 2010 | By

For the second year in a row, Scott Gomez and Brian Gionta are being asked to do it alone. Five games into the season, Canadiens coach Jacques Martin has tried Benoit Pouliot, Mathieu Darche, Travis Moen and even Andrei Kostitsyn on their line. In training camp, rookie Lars Eller played with them. So now it’s Tom Pyatt’s turn. At least that’s the indication from today’s practice.



LOOKING AHEAD-The Canadiens Roster Long-Term

Sep 6th, 2010 | By

Did you know the Canadiens have seven players with no-trade clauses in their contracts including Andrei Markov and Roman Hamrlik, both of whom will be unrestricted free agents at the end of this season? The trade restrictions on the two defensemen ends on February first, 2011, meaning the Canadiens can make a deal for them at the trade deadline if they wish. At the end of the coming season, Canadiens general manager Pierre Gauthier will have to deal with five unrestricted and eight restricted free agents. He will have just over twenty-five million dollars to sign thirteen players with defensemen Markov and Josh Gorges the top priorities.
And indication of the hockey world in the salary cap era, the Canadiens presently are committed to only four contracts two years from now, Gomez, Cammalleri, Gionta and Plekanec. And they are committed to only one contract, Plekanec, in the 2014-2015 season.
