Semin handed chance to shine for Canadiens

There weren’t many teams in the NHL falling over themselves to sign Alexander Semin on the back of a disappointing few years, and the Montreal Canadiens were able to pick up the Russian veteran on a one-year deal worth $1.1 million. This time next year, the Canadiens will be looking back at either an amazing piece of business or a relatively inexpensive mistake, but Semin does arrive in Montreal with an impressive C.V. in the league. Semin was available for a budget price after the Carolina Hurricanes bought him out of the final three years of his $7 million-a-year contract with the franchise, ending a three-year spell with the team that has failed to live up to the hype that surrounded his move from Washington in 2012.

Bergovin spinning the wheel with Canadiens contracts

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?
