IN – P.A. Parenteau, Tom Gilbert, Jiri Sekac, Manny Malhotra

OUT- Daniel Briere, Brian Gionta, Thomas Vanek, George Parros, Josh Gorges, Francis Bouillon, Douglas Murray

The Habs got better up front with Parenteau replacing the inconsistent play Vanek gave them in his short term.  Sekac is a question mark as to what the free agent signing will be able to contribute, but Malhotra gives them a guy on the lower lines that is a consumate leader.
