Habs Yemelin/Emelin talk and other links

The potential signing of Alexei Yemelin, by the Montreal Canadiens, has certainly sparked some interest on possibilities on the Habs blueline next season. Now keep in mind, it is merely a potential signing although both Marc De Foy and Bob McKenzie seem to think that the signing is just a formality.

Nothing is in concrete yet as Habs GM Pierre Gauthier will not be allowed to negotiate with agent Don Meehan until after the World Championships.The interesting clause, rumored to be in the deal, is a free ticket back to the KHL, if the Canadiens opted to demote him to the Hamilton Bulldogs. For all we know, this could end up as a dead end.

Meehan has declined comment, according to a report from CJAD. The agent also represents Andrei Markov and Andrei Kostitsyn, who are pending unrestricted free agent and restricted free agents respectively.

Eric Engels feels the possible signing could mean the end for Roman Hamrlik in Montreal.

A Winning Habit sees Andrei Markov as a good mentor for Yemelin.

Clearly there is no God as Jack Edwards gets a contract extension to call Boston Bruins games.

From earlier in the week, Steve Simmons on Hockey's coat of many colours. And no, he doesn't mean Don Cherry.

Quick shout out to Kamal Panesar of HabsAddict and a regular on TheTeam990's Sunday Shinny program. Kamal and his wife are expecting their first child in June. Kamal might use the early morning feedings as a jump-start on the rest of the Habs bloggers in the wee hours of the morning. Just a suggestion KP.
