Geoff Molson Satisfied With The Moves The Montreal Canadiens Made

from Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette,

After finishing with the best record in the Atlantic Division last season, the Canadiens underwent some significant changes during the off-season.

Three of the top-six defenceman are gone and so is winger Alex Radulov, while the newcomers include Jonathan Drouin, who is being counted on to provide a needed boost on offence.

It will take a while to properly assess the changes, but team president Geoff Molson said he’s satisfied with general manager Marc Bergevin’s off-season machinations.

“I think Marc did a nice job with his signings and some of his transactions,” Molson said Thursday as he participated in the unveiling of Place Bell in Laval. “Obviously, losing a player like (Andrei) Markov after playing his full career with the Montreal Canadiens, it’s disappointing to see because he really is a true Montreal Canadien at heart. But I think he made his decision and he’s moving on and we’re going to overcome that loss. But we’re grateful for everything he gave to us.”

“Bergy managed not to trade our best player for a significant, long-term downgrade, didn’t he? Of course I’m happy”, said Molson while dodging a question about the long-term potential outcome of the Drouin trade.
