While the Canadiens already boasted a healthy mix of veterans and youngsters, Molson is pleased with general manager Marc Bergevin's moves this offseason to address the team's needs.

"Marc filled every hole that he said he was going to fill, so I think that's really exciting," Molson said. "I'm really excited about this year coming up."

He added, "We have a team that should make the playoffs, I can tell you that. And I think the team and the organization and the fans would be extremely disappointed if we didn't. I think we've gotten to the point where we can. So, with that in mind, it would be disappointing if we didn't."

Bergevin has been the league's busiest executive this offseason. He traded for and subsequently signed forward Josh Anderson to a long-term deal, inked one of the top free agents in Tyler Toffoli, and handed out extensions to key players like Brendan Gallagher and Jeff Petry.

His decision to play in the BCHL, a league known primarily for preparing players for U.S. colleges, is also important to the Canadiens.
