Canadiens send three players qualifying offers

+

The day before free agency has been busy for the Canadiens with rumors of a Josh Gorges trade, Daniel Briere being swapped for P.A. Parenteau and sending out qualifying offers to players. Two of the offers are no surprise with P.K. Subban and Lars Eller both receiving offers. The third player is Joonas Nattinen who spent all of 95 seconds on the ice in the NHL thanks to Therrien's coaching. Nattinen being qualified is strange due to the fact he signed a contract with MODO of the Swedish league recently. Robert Czarnik, Peter Delmas and fan favorite Ryan White were not qualified by the Canadiens.

Looks like Bergevin is learning from his past contract signings and it's paying off huge for the Habs. Veteran defencemen Francis Bouillon will not be offered a contract according to Richard Labbe. Bouillon will hit the UFA market tomorrow and will likely sign with a team needing a depth defencemen.

5 undrafted players invited to Habs camp

According to Stephane Leroux of RDS, the Canaiens have invited the following five undrafted players from the QMJHL to their development camp: Marc-Olivier Crevier-Morin, Alexandre Goulet, Bokondji Imama, Philippe Gadoury, and Matthew Highmore. Perhaps the most interesting is Goulet, who was ranked 65th among North American skaters prior to the draft. We'll have to keep an eye out to see if any of these five players can make noise at camp.

According to Bob McKenzie, Bergevin is attempting to trade longtime Hab and assistant captain Josh Gorges, which could move enough salary for the Habs to land a big fish in the UFA market.

Some teams will definitely be in trouble (Boston, Chicago, Philadelphia). However the Habs shouldn't be in bad shape.
