Canadiens' pipeline filling up with young talent

  Canadiens' pipeline filling up with young talent As the Canadiens head into a pivotal off-season after a surprise showing in the NHL’s Return to Play tournament, we look at the top 10 prospects in the organization ahead of the NHL Entry Draft on Oct. 6-7 and free agency, which begins on Oct. 9. ALEXANDER ROMANOV AGE : 20 POSITION : Left defence HEIGHT/WEIGHT : 5-foot-11, 185 pounds DRAFT/SIGNING DETAILS : Second-round selection, No. 38 overall, in 2018. Signed a three-year, entry-level contract in June 2020. THE SKINNY : A virtual unknown when the Canadiens drafted him, Romanov was the top defenceman at the 2018 world junior tournament and was named to the all-star team in 2019 when he helped Russia win a silver medal.

Josh Anderson agreed to a seven-year, .5 million contract with the Montreal Canadiens on Thursday. I couldn' t be happier," Anderson said Friday. "In my situation, it was a no-brainer to sign an I'm just looking forward to getting started and meeting everybody once I get the chance to get

The Canadiens signed a big left-winger as the free agent market opened Friday, but his name is Brandon Baddock and not Taylor Hall.

The coronavirus and a flat salary cap took a lot of the frenzy out of free agency. There was an abundance of one-year contracts and award winners like Hall and defenceman Alex Pietrangelo were still looking for deals as the sun set on Day 1.

Bands have been placed in the Hockey Hall of Fame because new bands with room for more champion inscriptions were needed when the Cup ran out of space. Only twice since 1893 has the Stanley Cup not been awarded — in 1919, when an influenza outbreak caused the series to end after five games, and in 2005, when the NHL season was canceled because of a lockout.

General manager Marc Bergevin said the Canadiens showed interest in Hall and, when asked to access the chances of landing the former Hart Trophy winner, he said “until the player signs somewhere else, there’s always a possibility.”

Of course, Bergevin would face a major challenge if Hall did agree to come to Montreal. After signing newcomer Josh Anderson to a seven-year, US$38.5-million contract, and restricted free-agent defenceman Victor Mete for $735,000, the Canadiens have only about $3.9 million in cap space and Bergevin wants to keep $2 million for a rainy day.

In a league that values certainty, the Anderson contract was a win-win for the player and the team. Bergevin has been looking for a power forward since he arrived in Montreal and the 26-year-old Anderson fits that description, The contract avoids unrestricted free agency — Anderson was in a position to become s UFA next year — and covers what should be the most productive years of Anderson’s career.

The five best moments from the Canadiens' 2019-2020 season

  The five best moments from the Canadiens' 2019-2020 season In every season, good or bad, there are memorable moments that stay with fans or media. And in a year such as this, where the Canadiens played amid a global pandemic, they will have moments they won’t soon forget. But even before they reached the Toronto bubble, the Canadiens provided some fun moments for those watching from home or in the stands. It wasn’t all doom and gloom, even if it likely would’ve ended that way had the NHL not put the Habs in their expanded postseason. We already told you this season for the bleu-blanc-rouge wasn’t a complete writeoff . But now, we’ve pinpointed five of the best moments. 5.

Anderson, who said he would have been willing to gamble on himself with a one-year deal with an eye toward signing a long-term  extension in Montreal next year, gets the security of a long-term deal.

“I’m absolutely thrilled to be in Montreal for the next seven years,” Anderson said in a conference call.  “In my situation it was a no-brainer to sign an extension because I think they’re on the right path with so many key pieces. I want to be a part of that.”

A shoulder injury limited Anderson to 26 games last season, but he said he’s 100 per cent healthy after undergoing surgery.

“I’ve never been more confident,” Anderson said. “I’m healthy, I know what I  bring to the table. I know what I’ve done in this league. I’m not going to be less physical. I’m still going to play my game.”

The 6-foot-3, 222-pounder said he’s come a long way since he was overlooked in the OHL draft and he likes to prove people wrong.

“You have to go out there and prove yourself,” Anderson said. “I was thankful to play (junior hockey) in  London where I was taught to play the right way under Dale Hunter and Mark Hunter, who formed me into the player I am now.”

Anderson said he wasn’t concerned abut the pressure that comes with playing in Montreal

“You have to thrive under pressure, you can’t hide from it,” Anderson said. “If you’re being held accountable night in and night out and playing the right way and being a consistent hockey player, you’re going to do well.

The Canadiens made a pitch for forward Wayne Simmonds on Friday, but he opted to sign a one-year deal with  the Toronto Maple Leafs for $1.5 million.

“We talked to him and expressed our interest, but he decided that he wanted to play in Toronto, which is his hometown,” said Bergevin, who confirmed that Montreal offered Simmonds more money.

In addition to Mete, Bergevin re-signed restricted free agent Xavier Ouellet to a two-year, two-way contract. His NHL salary is $725,000 the first year and $750,000 the second year. He’ll earn $425,000 in the AHL. Baddock, a career minor-leaguer, signed a two-way deal.




Stu on Sports: Remembering a day Canadiens fans would like to forget .
Wednesday marked the 25th anniversary of a day Canadiens fans would probably like to forget. On Oct. 21, 1995 — four days after firing general manager Serge Savard and head coach Jacques Demers — Canadiens president Ronald Corey hired Réjean Houle and Mario Tremblay to take their spots after the team got off to an 0-5-0 start to the season. Corey also fired assistant GM André Boudrias and top scout Carol Vadnais, while hiring Yvan Cournoyer as an assistant coach . Houle and Tremblay, who had no experience in either position, were both signed to three-year contracts.
