Montreal Canadiens General Manager Marc Bergevin held his traditional press conference to launch the team’s training camp. He has ambitious goals for this season: « Internally, we have extremely high goals. We’ve added elements to position our team well this year without sacrificing the future of the team. Corey Perry had a good playoff season, and what he did in the series with Dallas convinced us that he was a player who could help us win playoff rounds. It sends a strong message to the other teams and our players about our vision for this season. » But he admits that his team will be at a disadvantage when it comes to confrontations in the west: « It’s going to be harder than in the past due to the amount of travel out west, but our players can’t wait to get started! It’s going to be a very good division and I’m confident that our team will be ready for our opening game in Toronto. » Bergevin loves his team very much and has finished shopping, which means fans won’t see Pierre-Luc Dubois in a Blue-White-Red jersey this season unless there is a surprise. It’s going to be a very good division and I’m confident that our team will be ready for our opening game in Toronto.  » According to GM, Carey Price’s back-up could see more action this year: « Jake Allen could play more than expected due to the condensed schedule. Today it helps us a lot to have him. »

Impressed by his three prospects at the CMJ

Marc Bergevin is satisfied with the performance of Caufield, Guhle and Mysak at the World Junior Ice Hockey Championships. « Cole Caufield, his progression is good, he’s going back to Wisconsin to finish his college year. Kaiden Guhle: good size, good at cutting plays and good physique. The future is promising for our three youngsters at the World Junior Championship.  » (Caufield, Mysak and Guhle)

In wrapping up, he made an interesting statement about the trade deadline: « Unless there are changes, it will be difficult to complete transactions this season, especially with players based in the United States. »
