"I indicated Thursday that one of the needs we had identified for our team was to acquire a center to add depth in the middle and complete our group of centermen consisting of Saku Koivu, Tomas Plekanec, Maxim Lapierre and Kyle Chipchura. The opportunity presented itself over the last few hours when the Flyers placed Glen Metropolit on waivers. Glen is a seasoned veteran who played very well against us in last year's playoffs against the Bruins. We are very pleased to have him on our roster," indicated General Manager Bob Gainey.
I don't think today was my most solid game that I've had, some rebounds here and there. I know there's a lot of work to do, not every game is going to go as good as these last few. I've just got to make sure I keep working and keep trying to get better.
