From The Montreal Gazette:

General manager Bob Gainey said he’ll sit back and wait for a few weeks before starting to put together his master plan for the 2009-10 edition of the Canadiens.

With 10 players eligible to become unrestricted free agents and a couple of key restricted free agents, Gainey has a full plate leading up to the July 1 free-agency deadline.

The good news is that Gainey has some flexibility because the team has a cap hit of a mere $23.5 million committed for next season. The bad news is that Gainey has a lot of high-priced spots to fill.
