Bergsfors Completes NBCSports Endorsement

Another year, another successful endorsement completed by Hab superstar Nik Bergsfors. Again with NBC Sports, the goal of 51 assists was met earlier this week in the midst of a current 12-game point streak. The completion yet again secures Montreal as one of the league's top-5 teams financially, though the top-3 of Carolina, Chicago, and Nashville have pulled away significantly.

Montreal's revenue per game sits behind only Nashville and Vancouver, and their average attendance behind only Vancouver.

All those fans could be seeing another star in the lineup in short order, as the league today announced their dates for the rental trade period, opening this Friday. GM Walsh will surely again seek to upgrade his team with an expiring player from another team, and other than in net, the upgrade could potentially come in at any position.

"We will be knocking on doors this week, for sure. All in, again" said Walsh.

Montreal currently sits atop the East, as they have all season, with a near insurmountable lead in their own division of 15 points. Such a cushion has allowed for constant line experimentation, though they currently appear to have settled on two configurations, one with Guillaume Latendresse on the top line and Michael Dal Colle double shifted at the bottom of the lineup, or vice versa.

Other than a constant rotation of futility on the powerplay, the rest of Montreal's lines have been rather locked all season.

So where will fresh blood work in? Last year, Montreal did not go in to the playoffs with newcomer Dal Colle on the top line, they upgraded at the trade deadline. This would lead one to believe the same play might be made with Brendan Shinnimin, who has been the #1C much of the year, but may find himself down in the lineup come playoff time.

The Habs are always happy to have a loaded defense, so that possibility exists as well.
