Canadiens GM Marc Bergevin likes players with character. Players that bring that something, that je ne sais quoi to a hockey game.
Once onboard, Bergevin quickly signed players like Brandon Prust, Francis Bouillon and Colby Armstrong. Plus, he re-signed Travis Moen.
And he discovered players already on the roster who have plenty of character too. Guys like Ryan White, Rene Bourque, Max Pacioretty and captain Brian Gionta. He also found two ripe, rookie players mature beyond their age and inexperience in Alex Galchenyuk and Brendan Gallagher.
