Canadiens GM Marc Bergevin stays mum on plans to pursue Vincent Lecavalier

SHORT HILLS, N.J. - Montreal Canadiens GM Marc Bergevin isn't giving any hints about his plans when it comes to pursuing hometown star Vincent Lecavalier.

Lecavalier quickly became one of the league's more coveted free agents after the Tampa Bay Lightning bought out his contract on Thursday.

Bergevin says the possibility of signing Lecavalier depends on a variety of factors and it's too soon to say what he'll do.

For the moment, the GM says his focus is on the draft.

He says the Canadiens may try to move up from the 25th spot in the first round.

The Habs hold six picks among the first 86 selections.

Quote of the Day

Just the feel for the direction they were headed and what they're trying to do, it just felt that this is a really good thing for this organization. They've got the pieces. We can put something together and go on a run or two and be together for a while, and I'm really excited about that opportunity. The team we have here has an opportunity to win, and that's the most attractive thing.
