Jeff Petry On Montreal

from MontrealCanadiens.com,

“It was my first experience on a winning team. This team has a good core group, which will play into my decision. I’m comfortable in the environment here, and as the younger talent develops, it will only get better,” underlined Petry, who spent close to five seasons with the Oilers before joining the Canadiens. “Everything here was first class. Montreal will definitely have strong considerations.”

While Petry’s play down the stretch obviously caught the eye of his GM, it surely also caught the attention of every other GM league-wide, making the five-year NHL veteran a hot commodity should he test the free agency pool.

Luckily for Habs fans, however, the lobbying campaign may very well end up playing out close to home.

“My wife loves Montreal. There’s so much more going on here than in Edmonton. Everything as a whole has been great here. Ultimately, she’s the boss,” cracked Petry.
