Montreal Canadiens' general manager Marc Bergevin held a press conference this morning.

The GM took the blame for his team's terrible record since losing starting goaltender and last year's NHL map, Carey Price. Since Price's injury, the Canadiens are 4-17 in their last 21 games.

Bergevin made two important announcement; Michel Therrien and the coaching staff will stay until the end of the year and Carey Price's rehab is taking longer than expected.

"It's been a hard time for all of us, but I believe in Michel Therrien and his coaching staff. Nobody is going anywhere."

"It's been slower than we expected. At least 3 more weeks''

Montreal's general manager also claimed that he wasn't willing to jeopardize the organization's future with a trade just to shake things up this season.

This terrible slide in the standings could be a blessing for the Montreal Canadiens. Finishing the season without a playoffs appearance would mean that Montreal would get a great position in the upcoming draft and could draft a player that would fill a need in the Habs' lineup.
