These are interesting times in Montreal. The news that Brendan Gallagher has signed a massive, six year extension to his contract with the Canadiens signals a potential complete strategy turnaround on the part of general manager Marc Bergevin.
Gallagher is the first – and so far only – player of any note on the squad to move directly from his entry-level contract to such a long term commitment. The deal is believed to average out at around $3.75 million a season. The rationale for Gallagher accepting the deal is cut and dried, but what the move says about the Canadiens’ plans going forwards has got pundits scratching their heads. Does this signal a change of tack?

As this year’s NHL draft draws closer all eyes are on Canada who have five teams in the running for a first pick. This year however, the Montreal Canadiens great form means they are some distance away from a first pick, and unless something dramatic changes between now and the 27th of June they won’t get any closer to a lottery win.
