What if Russia team "x" offers 8-9 years?

Gainey also said recently that he will be exploring long term deals more and he didn't say no to questions surrounding the signing of Mike Richards, I think theres a growing sense in the organization that some career-term contract are the way to go to keep the team together for a long time. Plekanec, AK and Komisarek comes to mind, Higgins less so.

Russian teams have the money to throw around some decent sized contracts, but I have serious doubts that any of them have the backing to throw like 30-40 million at a guy like Kostitsyn. Especially when you consider the salary cap they have to operate under in the KHL now.

Komisarek for a career term contract. Underline it.

Gainey said he would contact UFAs in the next two weeks: Streit, Smolinski, Ryder and Brisebois.
Other than Streit (and MAYBE Smolinski), I hope "contact" means telling them that they won't be offered contracts.

Quote:
About Streit: Mark has given a specific contribution to the team this year. He has done a lot of points in PP. Question is to evaluate if we have enough space in salary cap. Author of the article goes on to say that Mark would probably accept to have a lower salary if he wants to stay with the Habs. Also as of Monday, Pat Brisson had no communication from Montreal.
Translation: We're not over-paying for a one dimensional PP specialist. I'd give it 50/50 he returns... he'd be OK at 2.5-3M a season but anything beyond that is too much. He could get a lot more than that on the open market, so it's really just a question if he wants to stay or not.


As usual BG is bang on with everything else. Bring on the off-season baby!
