The Montreal Canadiens brought balance to their defense in the first hour of unrestricted free agency Tuesday.

Moments after trading defenseman Josh Gorges to the Buffalo Sabres, the Canadiens signed unrestricted free agent defenseman Tom Gilbert to a two-year contract reportedly worth $2.8 million per season and then resigned defenseman Mike Weaver to a one-year contract worth a reported $1.75 million.

As right-handed defensemen, Gilbert and Weaver fill a need on a team that had P.K. Subban as the only right-handed shooter on the back end.

The Montreal Canadiens wasted no time filling the hole left by the trade of center Daniel Briere one day prior by signing center Manny Malhotra to a one-year contract reportedly worth $850,000 on Tuesday.

The signing was reported by TSN minutes after the free-agent market opened at noon ET.

"I spoke with a few teams that showed some interest, a lot of teams in different stages of their growing process," Malhotra told TSN. "But based on the chat I had with [general manager] Marc Bergevin and then coach [Michel] Therrien, the role they saw me in, where they saw the future of their team going and obviously Montreal being the market it is -- you get chills as an opposing player going into that building -- it's going to be a pretty special feeling putting on the red, white and blue."

Playing for the Pittsburgh Penguins alongside two former Hart Trophy winners in Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin, left wing James Neal was not looked upon to be a leader or to carry the load offensively.

The Nashville Predators, who acquired Neal on Friday at the NHL Draft in exchange for forwards Patric Hornqvist and Nick Spaling, will count upon Neal for each of those qualities.

He said he is embracing the challenge.

"To have an opportunity to be a leader and to be the guy is something I've always wanted to be and tried to be as a young player coming into the League," Neal said during a conference call Monday. "I feel like I'm at that stage of my game where I'm willing to take care of that responsibility and drive with it. I'm excited for the challenge. It's going to be fun. When you play this game and you want to be the best, high expectations come with that and you want those expectations."

Roster changes, draft have Sabres focused on future

Monday, 06.30.2014 / 4:29 PM / NHL Insider

Joe Yerdon - Correspondent

BUFFALO -- The Buffalo Sabres' busy weekend at the 2014 NHL Draft signaled the unofficial start of the organization's rebuild.

The Sabres made nine picks at the draft highlighted by the selection of Kootenay Ice center Sam Reinhart with the No. 2 pick in the first round and Barrie Colts left wing Brendan Lemieux, the first pick of the second round. Those picks, as well as trades last season that subtracted Thomas Vanek, Matt Moulson, Ryan Miller, and Steve Ott from the roster and the compliance buyouts used on forward Ville Leino and defenseman Christian Ehrhoff means the team is being built virtually from the ground up.

"Last year was a tough year," Sabres general manager Tim Murray said. "Quite frankly, if you want me to sit here and go through player by player what I thought, it can't be pretty, right? The team was not very good. That's gone for me. This is a new beginning. This is my first full year. This is Teddy's [Nolan, coach] first full year.

"There was so much change last year. This is where we start off and try to lay down the right lessons. Are we going to be way better? I'm not saying that at all, but things will be way better. Expectations, how you play the game, how you carry yourself as a pro; those things have to get better."

Quote of the Day

I got a chance to play a thousand games and that's pretty special to me. To get a thousand [points], it's a great accomplishment. I'm not going to hide my feelings, I'm proud of that. To do it on a win, do it on a goal, I think it makes it special.
