Samsonov clears waivers and then clears the air with Gainey, Carbonneau

The Russian winger, a major disappointment this season, says he's looking forward to staying on with the Montreal Canadiens after meeting with head coach Guy Carbonneau and GM Bob Gainey.

On Tuesday, the Canadiens placed Samsonov on waivers after the US$3.525-million winger said they should trade him if they're not going to play him. He was scratched a second consecutive time for Tuesday night's 2-1 loss to Carolina.

Samsonov, who will also earn $3.525 million next season, has only seven goals and 15 assists in 52 games this season.
