Update: Nothing tickles Habs’ fancy

• BILINGUAL AUDIO: Pierre Gauthier

Habs didn’t have much room to move: Hickey
Idle trade-day GM Gauthier prepared to live with what he’s got: Stubbs
Much ado about nothing: Fisher

Canadiens general manager Pierre Gauthier, VP hockey operations Julien BriseBois and head coach Jacques Martin spent the day in Boston working the phones, as much as they did, but didn’t see anything worth moving on as the NHL’s trade deadline came and went.

Gauthier told the Montreal media by teleconference just now that the message he sends to his club is that any success the team is to achieve this season will come from within, a refrain heard last season when Gauthier’s predecessor, Bob Gainey, didn’t make any moves on deadline day.

Gauthier maintained that his two young goalies, Carey Price and Jaroslav Halak, are keys to the team’s success this season. He added that he’s satisfied with the talks he’s had thus far to keep Tomas Plekanec with the organization beyond this year.

Apologies for the quality of the audio, which was less than superior at source.
