On Hockey Night in Canada, it was mentioned that Radulov is hoping for a six-year deal. According to a report on last night’s news segment on Hockey Night in Canada’s primetime broadcast, Montreal Canadiens winger Alexander Radulov is hoping to sign a lengthy deal once his one-year pact comes to a close, perhaps for six years at around $4.5 to $5 million per year. Nick Kypreos offered the alternative option of a three-year contract, which would still give Radulov the chance to get another contract at its conclusion, but that would increase the dollar figur

This story was first published on Feb. 22, 2009, in the Montreal Gazette. “A record crowd of 15,780 fans jammed the Forum on Saturday night to pay tribute to Maurice (The Rocket) Richard.” Gazette, Monday, Feb. 19, 1951 The Montreal Canadiens have always aimed to do it in style – and not just when actually playing hockey. The team’s current centennial celebrations, including yesterday’s Jersey Game against the Ottawa Senators, are part of a long tradition. The club was less than half its present age when, in 1951, its star right-winger, Maurice Richard, was honoured with a gala at centre ice of the old Forum on Atwater Ave. The Detroit Red Wings, practically out of sight in first place, were here to play, and the Habs were struggling to stay ahead of Boston for the fourth and last playoff spot. But if Montreal was having a so-so season, the Rocket was not. He wa

Friedman: Canadiens weren’t only team in pursuit of Claude Julien

The Montreal Canadiens were not the only team in pursuit of head coach Claude Julien, according to Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman. “It was well known that the Boston Bruins had been asked by several teams to have permission to talk to Claude Julien,” Friedman said Saturday on Hockey Night in Canada’s Headlines segment. “One of the reasons Montreal had to move quickly was because there was at least one other team that was in negotiations with (him).” Julien was fired by the Bruins on Feb. 7 and a week later replaced Michel Therrien as coach of the Canadiens. Friedman said he didn’t think the mystery team was the expansion Vegas Golden Knights, but rather “somebody who has a coach right now. That’s one of the reasons Julien did so well financially.” Julien signed a five-yea

If the Montreal Canadiens want to keep Alexander Radulov beyond this season, they may have to consider a long-term deal. The right-winger is currently on a one-year, $5.75-million contract and is looking to “hit a home run” in his impending free agency, said Sportsnet’s Nick Kypreos during Hockey Night in Canada’s Headlines segment on Saturday. “Long term. That’s what Radulov wants,” said Kypreos. “This is his window of opportunity to get a long-term deal.” Radulov is enjoying a remarkable return to the NHL after his most recent stint in the KHL, scoring 14 goals and 42 points over 57 games this season. He’s plus-six, has 15 power-play points and projects to be the top available free agent this coming off-season.

Ron & Don: Claude Julien will get the Canadiens’ season back on track

Date: 2017-02-19

One week after the Boston Bruins fired head coach Claude Julien after he spent 10 seasons with the club, he was hired by the Montreal Canadiens, a team he coached from 2002-2006 in his first NHL head coaching job. In the process, the Canadiens had to fire Michel Therrien, who had been with the team since 2012. The Habs had been struggling with just seven wins in their last 19 games under Therrien and GM Marc Bergevin decided it was time for a change. On Coach’s Corner Saturday night, Don Cherry shared his opinion on the change, believing Julien is the man to get the Habs’ season back on track. “A lot of people say ‘how could the Boston Bruins let him go?” Cherry said. “Claude was a good warrior 10 years there, won the Stanley Cup, how could they say no?” Cherry pointed out tha
