Alexander Radulov bolts Montreal for 5-year deal with Stars

04 July 2017

"Alexander is a dynamic playmaker with top-end speed and skill", general manager Jim Nill said. He played on a $5.75 million, one-year deal and was looking for a long-term agreement this time around.

"I talked to doctors in Europe and they were very positive". That is why I am also confident of being able to bounce back and play at the same level as before.

Rosters were cut from 34 per league to 32 under the new labour deal, and online voting determines the last spot on each roster. He is coming off a three-year, $17.25 million contract signed ahead of the 2014-15 season. He goes down and so does the team. He could help any contender. "Physically, he's in great shape". He said he had matured and credited his new son with helping. I have to discuss it further with the coach.

"We want to bring (Radulov) back but not on his terms". Ilya Kovalchuk has been exploring a return to the NHL, but there's no evidence that's going to happen next season.

"It's their right and I respect that", Bergevin said.

The 30-year-old talked about his hunger and desire to not only win, but also to get into the playoffs. The Red Wings bolstered their blue line Saturday by signing two-time Stanley Cup winner Trevor Daley to a $9.5 million, three-year contract. Either way, the Capitals still need to confront some things. They owned the 20th best power play and the worst penalty kill in the league last year, hitting record-low numbers when compared to their performance over recent years.

Trade market July has become a popular time for significant trades because teams have more cap space to maneuver than at the deadline. His scoring production has certainly faded a little and he's injury prone: two reasons that teams had to be careful about signing the veteran forward.

Vegas has already flipped defensemen - Marc Methot to Dallas, Trevor van Riemsdyk to Carolina, Alexei Emelin to Nashville and David Schlemko to Montreal - and acquired center Marcus Kruger from Chicago.

The Dallas Stars are known to be pursuing Radulov.

Hanzal will basically serve as a booster for all of the Dallas Stars' weak areas this past year. "I'm really, really happy to be a part of it".

"You could always try to manage, we have young guys", Bergevin added.

In a sign of the generational change, the All-Stars with the most selections are Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw with eight and St. Louis catcher Yadier Molina with seven. Edmonton also has to sign restricted free agent forward Leon Draisaitl this summer, and that won't come cheap. The Predators did not offer him a contract extension after that.
