Bergevin wanted to make the Habs tougher after the 2013 playoff loss to the Ottawa Senators in which his team got physically outplayed. His quick fix was to trade for George Parros. It didn't work out so well.
Parros is simply not a fit on a team that wins with speed and skill. He leaves Montreal as an unrestricted free agent after playing in just 22 games and posting 85 penalty minutes.
His only role in Montreal was to fight. Weise, Prust and Travis Moen will drop the gloves in 2014-15. His departure does not affect the Canadiens roster.
Douglas Murray leaves Montreal after just one season. He finished a minus-12 in 53 games played.
He was in and out of the lineup all season, acting as the left-side defenseman on the third pairing when the Canadiens played a physical opponent.
The Habs will not miss his slow feet or his lack of offensive skill. His physical presence did come in handy against teams such as the Boston Bruins, however, and it will be up to guys such as Emelin and Jarred Tinordi to fill that void.
The 38-year-old Francis Bouillon is an unrestricted free agent whose time is likely up in Montreal. He appeared in 52 regular-season games and nine playoff games in 2013-14.
Bouillon was nothing more than a depth defenseman for the Habs, filling in holes on the back end when needed. Assuming the Canadiens don't sign anyone else this offseason, it'll be up to Tinordi, Beaulieu and perhaps Greg Pateryn to replace him.
Ryan White leaves the only team he has played for at the NHL level after five seasons. He's an unrestricted free agent and has yet to catch on with another squad.
White was in and out of the lineup for most of his NHL career. When he was on the ice, he played limited minutes as the fourth-line center but will mostly be remembered for taking questionable penalties.
