Paul Byron does not know if he will be ready for the next retreat


Today Paul Byron took part in the Dominique Ducharme golf tournament. He was the only player of the current edition to participate in the tournament of the one who was Claude Julien’s assistant and coach for almost a year.

Jeff Petry is said to have gone to great lengths to free himself, without success. #Joke

So that means the few guys who are in town for the summer haven’t gone. They don’t have to go, of course, but it proves that Paul Byron is a man of class.

So he spoke to the media and learned that # 41 may not be ready for the next retreat. He has not yet been able to start training again because his injury is not healing as expected.

Left hip surgery last summer and absent at the start of the season, in the end it was his right hip that prevented him from finishing the season correctly. And of course he hasn’t fully recovered yet.

He hopes he can be in for retirement, but he’s not sure. He wants to prove himself first.

The only priority for me is to play a game with my injury. –Paolo Byron

In all of this there is also the story of the contract that bothers him.

The # 41 knows his contract ($ 3.4 million per season) will expire at the end of the season and he wants to stay in Montreal. He never hid it in the past and still is.

Sure, I really like Montreal. I would like to stay here if possible, but I have to stay healthy and play a whole season. –Paolo Byron

He wants to be healthy to help the club, but also to fight for a place in the sun. We wish him, he who for so long has donated his body to the Canadian and hockey.

When you read it from Byron, it’s not exactly reassuring. The winger may not be able to play an entire season, which would hurt the Canadian on some levels.

Kent Hughes must not be satisfied (by the situation, not by Byron) as this summer he must take into account the 3.4 million dollars of the player on the mass. He can’t assume it won’t be there.

It’s the same for Carey Price. We are therefore speaking in full of $ 13.9 million of uncertainty, which partly explains why the CEO absolutely has to release his salary in the next few days.

Lot of

– It will be short.

– Nice picture.

– How with Carey Price, then?

– About the wolf.

– Notice to interested parties.

– A sensitive subject.
