Found August 22, 2013 on Kukla's Korner:
It's hot and sunny, so this will be short and sweet: good move. Bergevin gets a veteran defenceman to help bridge the period that Alexei Emelin will miss while recovering from surgery, one who can move the puck a little bit and is good positionally. He's also very intelligent, and has a very successful patent, but that's a story for another day. Back to summer, but only two weeks until the action begins. Should the Habs make another addition, a veteran forward would make sense. With Murray in tow, eight defencemen are on one way contracts, and the back end is shored up. Once again, well done, M. Bergevin. To everyone else, enjoy the last days of non-hockey weather!
