The Montreal Canadiens roster is pretty much set for training camp like many teams across the NHL.
However there remains the chance to add some veteran players and give them the chance to making the team by signing them to a PTO.
We've already heard general manager Marc Bergevin shut down the idea of doing that with Andrei Markov.
Another veteran the Canadiens have been attached to is Jason Pominville.
He would be a good veteran presence for the younger players and his agent has publicly stated he has interest in joining the Canadiens.
However the feeling of interest isn't mutual.
Bergevin revealed to reporters at Monday's golf tournament that he won't be signing Pominville to a contract or PTO. The Habs' GM added he's more interested in giving the young prospects like Ryan Poehling and Nick Suzuki a chance to make the team.
Jason Pominville won’t be at @CanadiensMTL camp on a PTO. Management wants to make sure the young players will have a fair chance during camp.
