Dandenault to Montreal?

According to rds.ca, TSN's French affiliate, Mathieu Dandenault is interested in joining the Montreal Canadiens. It's not much of a surprise to me. Dandenault was born in Sherbrooke, Quebec, and played in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League from 1993-1996 with his hometown Sherbrooke Faucons. Montreal is about 90 miles from Sherbrooke, and GM Bob Gainey is looking for a replacement for longtime Hab defenseman Patrice Brisebois. Also, Gainey is making serious offers on the market to solidify the Canadiens as a competitive team: one report is that Mike Modano might sign a three-year, $7.5 million with the Habs. That all makes me worried that Dandenault, our two-way threat, could be gone.

I'd really hate to lose Dandenault. He's not a superstar and doesn't do much spectacular stuff but he is versatile and is very valuable in this new NHL. The Wings need to fight to keep him.

I agree. The Wings were horribly slow footed on D last year, and Dandenault is easily their fastest defenseman. Actually, after Draper and Maltby, the fastest player. And he always upgrades his game during the playoffs. The Wings REALLY need to find a way to keep him.
