Habs Add A Defenceman

Montreal signed Marc-Andre Bergeron today to help shore up the hurting blueline.

This is a guy with a wicked shot, is a good, rushing defenceman, but has in the past been dealt a few times for lower draft picks. He was also unsigned after having a good year in Minnesota last season. What does all this mean?

He’s also not big but we’re used to that.

More on Mr. Bergeron right here.

And here.

  1. There you go, now we know who Mtl could pick up and although it did not cost us any prospects it does potentially push Weber and et al not just into the back seat but out the car door. You have to wonder about this guy being in his prime but unable to find a team throughout the summer. On the bright side he is French and therefore will be the one to take us to the promised land.

  2. I like it. Cheap, short, improves our depth and addresses our immediate need for a puck carrying PP specialist.
    With 2 Dmen out, Weber or someone else from Hamilton will still be needed in Montreal. The extra competition for ice-time will be good as long as no one throws a Sergei tantrum.

  3. He’s was a good Defenceman in his prime, but he’s not the kind we’re looking for.

    We’ll just have to wait and see if the move was a home run, or a strike out.

  4. I just wonder why teams didn’t want him, he remained unsigned, and he was being traded for third round draft picks.
