from Pierre Durocher of Sun Media,
“Twice last season I asked the Flames to trade me, and Montreal was on my wish list both times,” he said, vowing to carve a permanent niche for himself in his home province.
“I’m 28 and this is my ninth NHL season, so I’m very happy to be here.”
Tanguay acknowledges he ran into trouble last year in Calgary with a meagre production of 58 points (18 goals, 40 assists), down from 78 and 81 points tallies during his two previous seasons.
Coach Mike Keenan used him on a defensive line with Craig Conroy and Owen Nolan which did not please him at all.
“I thought they traded for me from Colorado because I could generate offence,” Tanguay said with a bitter smile.
