Gainey Signs Cammalerri, Gionta

Mike Cammalerri (29)Bob Gainey signed two more big names for even bigger money tonight, grabbing UFAs Mike Cammalerri from the Calgary Flames and Brian Gionta from the New Jersey Devils. Cammalerri, a left-winger, had a very nice season with the Flames in 2008-2009 as the 5’9″ centre notched 39 goals and 43 assists, allowing him to command $30 million over five years from the Canadiens. The second signing (and likely rounding out our new top line with Gomez and Cammalerri) is Brian Gionta of the Devils, a right-winger who managed 20 goals and 40 assists last season.

It seems very likely at this point that Gomez, Cammalerri and Gionta will become our first line and it would seem that Koivu, Kovalev, Tanguay and Lang will not be returning.
