We told you about it before yesterday's game, head coach Martin St-Louis made a nice gesture and allowed two veterans, very appreciated in the dressing room, to play the last game of the season.

Mathieu Perreault and Chris Wideman were in uniform to participate in the party, replacing Laurent Dauphin and William Lagesson in the lineup.

Now that the season is over (and even before the game), Wideman and Perreault made sure to send a clear message to Montreal fans and officials: they want to be back with the Habs next year and they love playing hockey for Montreal.

Wideman added that he has developed some great friendships and really wants to help the kids.


As for Mathieu Perreault, he wants to come back to the city next year. It is his greatest wish: to stay with the CH.

Both see themselves in Montreal next season.

Otherwise, Perreault has already discussed another option with his wife, that of pursuing his career in Europe.

"I haven't played my last hockey game," he said.

The message is out. So Kent Hughes and Jeff Gorton have two veterans here, who really want to sign new contracts (at minimum wage) in Montreal and are willing to accept their roles.
