Canadiens will have to make a decision on Danault
Canadiens GM Marc Bergevin may not be able able to meet Danault’s long-term demands.
“It’s certain that Phillip’s an important player for us and it’s also certain that we’ll see what happens next season. But we also have some depth. We have Ryan Poehling, who’s a centre, and Jake Evans, who’s a centre. At the end of the day, on that side of things, I think we’ll be in good position. But again, we’re happy, we’re proud, but we’ll see what the year brings. There’s decisions to make on every level.”
No internal salary cap for the Bruins and a depth option for their blue line
Jimmy Murphy of Boston Hockey Now: So far the Boston Bruins are working on the assumption that there won’t be an internal salary cap.
“There have not been any conversations with Mr. Jacobs or Charlie Jacobs regarding restrictions on hockey-related spending. They continue to give the hockey management full support.”
Defenseman John Moore could be moved if the Bruins have a move in mind. The Bruins have been exploring different options.
One option according to a couple of sources is former Montreal Canadiens defenseman Karl Alzner. The Canadiens bought out the final two years of the 32-year olds contract.
