from E.J. Hradek of ESPN,
The Canadiens’ summer moves, and there have been several of them, seem like a wash to me. Still, I think they’ll be a little better than the 90-point, non-playoff team they were last season because of their group of goaltenders….
The Canadiens added veteran center Bryan Smolinski and 28-year-old role player Tom Kostopoulos. The team also signed 6-foot-2, 196-pound Janne Lahti, 24, from the Finnish League. Those three players will have a chance to replace ex-Habs Radek Bonk, Mike Johnson and Alexander Perezhogin.
Gainey and Co. wanted to make a bigger splash during the summer. It didn’t happen. Still, I think their goaltending depth gives them a chance to exceed expectations in the new season.
