It's on Canadiens Official Twitter as well. 1 year contract. Seems fair enough. He earned it with his play last year. Whether he's a bottom 6 guy or a spare forward remains to be seen.

Edit: 1 year, $700K per Renaud Lavoie

700K is incredible value for a guy who had 26 pts in 59 games, which projects to 36 pts on a full season.

I know a guy who earned over 7 million for that type of output...

No brainer to bring him back, good utility player in the bottom 6. Not the most skilled guy but works his tail off, brings some size and goes to the net...plus a good attitude and positive influence on the young guys.

Since his callup last year...88 GP 17-19-36(0.41 PPGM) playing an average of 11 minutes a night. That's well above average production for 4th line minutes(on average).

Gill, Kosty and Darche all back for one more year. Darche got (and deserved) a raise but it still cheap, the others didn't. Hardly earth-shattering, but these are good signings.

I like the move, BUT it does eat up a roster spot. Between Darche and Kostitsyn, the odds of seeing Pouliot back have likely diminished. And/Or the odds of us being players on guys like Cody McCormick or Maxime Talbot as some wanted in the line-up thread have all but disappeared.

Darche put up similar PPG to Gomez last year - I wouldn't call him a 12-13th forward.

guy can easily pot 15 goals for 700K.

Were paying Laraque 500K for eating vegetable & running marathons.

Why are you comparing him or anybody else to Gomez?? Why are you even reminding me of Gomez this early in the morning?

Happy with this signing. The guy is a class act and costs peanuts for what he brings to this team. I'd rather have Darche be a 13th forward then one of our young players in Hamilton...but he'll probably play full time as he's capable of potting 10-15 goals and 30 points.

Because the Gomez comparable is very flattering .

This guy needs to stay in the organization after his playing career. Class act.

I just hope they don't plan to make him play on the 1st two lines and on the PP.

If he can be our 12th/13th forward and stay there, I'm fine with that.

I'm glad I'm not the only one in Montreal who sees the tremendous amount of value this guy brings to our team. He isn't a perfect player but he'll do anything the coach asks of him and works damn hard. I had him pegged at 700k in my proposal too, he earned it imo

I don't mind him on the 2nd PP, he brings size in front of the net and decent hands enough to finish. How is that a bad thing?

Darche is a good warrior for us and he gives it all but if we have to rely on him again to play on the PP, it will be because of our lack of depth and offense. It would not be the end of the world if he was on the 2nd PP but I would rather have someone with better offensive skills ... and with the same will.

It would mean that some players failed if he gets PP time before Camy, Pleky, AK, Gionta, Gomez, MaxPac, Eller and DD...

Good, I like Darche and that's a pretty good contract for us. I was sure it would be much closer to 1 million per season. Good job Gauthier
