Trevor Timmins speaks from experience
Trevor Timmins admits there was uncertainty surrounding his future with the Montreal Canadiens after Marc Bergevin was hired to take over as general manager of club during the off season. However Timmins feels Bergevin put that to rest as soon as he came in.
"It's great to have stability and to move forward with this great franchise, " said Timmins from the Czech Republic where he has been taking in the Ivan Hlinka Tournament.
Yesterday the Canadiens announced they had extended Timmins' contract as he prepares to go into season number 11 with the organization.
"I left Ottawa to come here to help the team win a Stanley Cup. That goal hasn't been accomplished yet. I'm looking forward to helping meet that goal."
Timmins has received rave reviews for the work the Canadiens did going into the June Draft, and the players they came away with: including first-round pick Alex Galchenyuk.
"I just hope all these people are right.," said Timmins with a chuckle "I'm extremely happy today. If we're this happy in five years from now, we'll look back and say that was one heck of a draft."
