La Presse: Pavel Valentenko montre de belles promesses


    Habster’s take:

    Pavel Valentenko is the real deal, Habs fans!!! It sounds like Mr. Valentenko is adapting rather well to the North American lifestyle and the english/french language to boot!!!!! If he can play anywhere near the level that Anton Volchenkov plays then the Habs have another player (Komisarek also comes to mind) they’ve been coveting for years: big hitting, tough defenseman who will clear the net area.
