Bergevin gets busy

So if the top three teams in the East this year are Boston, Pittsburgh and Montreal, they have thus far acquired Jagr, Morrow, Iginla - and Drewiske.

Who is Davis Drewiske? He's a competent depth defenceman who came out of the University of Wisconsin, and provides the Canadiens with insurance on the back end going into the playoffs. Sure, it's not a sexy move, but it's a pragmatic one.

Is Bergevin done? I'm still curious why Rick Dudley has been scouting Winnipeg so much of late. Perhaps they're after a name that hasn't been front and centre? They could still use a physical defenceman, and primarily another scoring winger.

This team deserves some reinforcements after the effort they've put in to date. Let's see what M. Bergevin comes through with.

About The Upper Canadien

The Upper Canadien is your one stop shop for all things Montreal Canadiens. Since the summer of 2010, I've been providing Habs related news, notes, and most importantly, opinions. As a blogger, I don't believe it's my job to report the news, it's my privilege to comment on it. You may disagree with what I suggest. In fact, you most likely will. But that's the great part about blogging: it spurs opinion, comment and engages all involved. I've really enjoyed all the debate and commentary from readers thus far and I encourage everyone to respond with ideas on lineups, trades, logos, sweaters, mascots, whatever. The Upper Canadien is a conversation for all hockey fanatics.

I've come to Kukla's Korner with four years of campus radio and three years of sportswriting from my time at Mount Allison University on Canada's East coast. Not only do I not have any professional journalistic training, after five years in the corporate world, I've spent much of the past two years completing an MBA. Business by day, hockey by night, I'm a Canadiens fan through and through. I hope you enjoy reading as much as I do writing.
