Carey Price is in position to retire as a member of the Canadiens, after the team announced Sunday that he will receive an eight-year extension beginning in 2018-19. And he's far from the only high-paid, upper-echelon goalie to fall into this category. "It would be on the terms of the Montreal Canadiens in the short term and the long term".
"There's already opportunity next season to be a serious threat, " Alzner said. "I had an opportunity to get a chance to get over that hump with a new club, so I took that".
"They obviously were two big parts of our team last season and I really hope we can find a way to put them back in the lineup for us", Price said.
Markov and Radulov are two of the most attractive unrestricted free agents who remain available, two players who would provide offense to any team that signed them.
"Giving one player a big amount makes things a little more hard", Bergevin admitted Sunday after announcing the deal. The 27-year-old forward cashed in on his season, signing a $9.45 million, three-year deal with the Canucks.
Price was entering the final year of his deal with Montreal, which will pay him $7 million. The Canucks spent less than a $1 million a year to add depth with center Alexander Burmistrov and defenseman Patrick Wiercioch.
Finally, Morrow will join Montreal's blue line on a one-year deal, returning to free agency in the summer of 2018 in a move unique compared to the other two signings. To put it into perspective, the Habs now have $53 million in cap space tied up to 14 players for the 2018-19 season, when the $4 million salary jump will take place. Kuznetsov had 19 goals and 59 points last season, giving him 53 goals and 182 points in 261 National Hockey League games.
