I don't mind overpaying a guy like Radulov by a million or so if it comes down to it. You don't lose one of the few legitimate 1st line forward this team has over "crumbs". We've overpaid, and still overpay, role players for years. You get rid of them before getting rid of Radulov.

I think I'd be comfortable with a contract up to 4 years. 5 years if you need to. Beyond that, he'd need to give us a pretty good discount I believe. 6 years is a pretty big commitment for a soon to be 31 years old player.
exactly. I'm surprised why some people would be more or less okay with losing him. We still need to add even WITH Radulov.

I also think he's better than his stats. The guy's clearly been the catalyst for our offence. Patches was having a career year mainly because of him. Galchenyuk was in the top 5 in scoring due to him. He creates so much.

Pacioretty has 5 consecutive seasons (excluding lockout) with 60+ points

His best season was 67 points (37 Goals) in 14-15 playing with Desharnais and Gallagher/Parenteau/Weise. He also had about 10 games with Plekanec and another 10 games with Galchenyuk.

In the middle of these seasons was the lockout year where he had a pace of 72 points.

So with the lockout pace, he has 6 consecutive years of 60+ points.

Now saying that Pacioretty is having a career year mainly because of him would be the same as saying he had a career year in 2014-15 with Desharnais. In 2014-15, DD had 48 points. He is now on pace for 68 points and 37 goals: 1 point more than 2014-15. Career year: maybe by a tiny bit. Because of Radulov: that is another story.
His performance improved when he played with Radulov but it could also have been because his injury was no longer bothering him.

As for Galchenyuk, he did produced pretty well with Pacioretty and Gallagher toward the end of the season last year. He also had his best production playing with the same players at the beginning of the season.

For now, Gallagher is paid 3.75M and has scored 47 points (24G) in 14-15.
He also had a pace 29.4 goals and 32.49 assists last year (62 points).
Radulov will not reach 55 points this season while taking Gallagher's spot on the first PP.

I am all for signing Radulov but anything over 6M and 3-4 years would be too much.
Let's see how Radulov and Gallagher perform in PO.

SCap is reality of GMs.
Give Radulov 6MX3 years and then tell me how much you will pay Pacioretty in two years after 8 years of 30+ goals and 60+ points (9 if you look at lockout pace).
8M X 5 years?
9M X 5 years?

We have plenty of wingers:
  • Radulov - 5.75M;
  • Pacioretty - 4.5M;
  • Shaw - 3.9M;
  • Gallagher - 3.75M;
  • Galchenyuk - 2.8M;
  • Byron - 1.167M;
  • Lehkonen - .925;
That is 7 players. Radulov (100K per point) is a better deal than Shaw (pace of 36 points - 108K per point) and that's about it. Bolded players are good deals. Galchenyuk (pace of 62 points) should also be bolded but we don't know his salary next year.

Galchenyuk scoring 30G-30A as a first center would be much better than Radulov: more goals and more points.
If he could only either win FO or be better in defense.

We don't want to loose him.

Pay him according to market as a UFA.
If he performs better then we have a good deal.
If he performs lower (he is 30) then we have a less good deal.
He will not get 7M as a UFA with the numbers he has.

I do not expect collapse from him a la Plekanec but I am pretty sure his ceiling is around 20G-40A-60 points.

Of course, with Tavares as a center, he could produce as much as 65-70 points but Pacioretty would score 45 goals and get 75-80 points.

We could also see Galchenyuk improve to ppg.
In this case, we could deal with 42%-45% FO like Malkin (43.1%), Scheifele (43.4%), Kuznetsov (43.3%), McDavid (43.4%), Eichel (39.6%), Couture (40%)).
Compare to these players, on FO, AG is not so bad but Couture already has a 65 and a 67 points season and Kuznetsov a 77 points season.
With Galchenyuk in center getting 43% in FO, better defense and .9 ppg we would be in Business. He maybe bad in FO but it took 5 years for Hanzal to reach 50%. Now he is a FO specialist at 55%.
Alex is better in PP FO btw (46%): there is hope.

I wouldn't do that. Be another Plekanec type contract.

Are we going to pay Radulov 9M?

His cap-hit is already 5.75M... We don't need a substantial amount of money to re-sign him. It's about Bergevin's willingness to commit a certain amount of years to the guy.

If they do give him 5 years, I hope it's either at the same salary as now or a little less.

If they sign him at 4 years or less, then I'm okay with his cap hit going up. But I don't want it surpasses 7M.

One reason I think Radulov will be re-signed is that Price seems to really like and appreciate this guy. And with MB doing what he can to make the team competitive enough to keep Price in Montreal, extending Radulov could be one of those elements.

Really liked his interview after the game.

Was passing off the credit to his teammates (mentioned Price's big save in OT), kept saying how he wants to make the fans happy and then blamed himself for 2 penalties in the second and credited the PK for saving him.

Craziest part of his pass to Plekanec was he wasn't even looking at him when he passed it, was looking back at the point and put it right back on Plek's tape.

Yea, in his interview with Renaud Lavoie after the game, he thanked his teammates for killing his two bad penalties and he owes them.

This team is nothing without The Great Godulov!

Give him 10 years, I don't care!!

Absolute spectacular performance...that's what a Playoff Warrior looks like!

5 points in 3 games tied with Crosby for 2nd best scorer in the playoffs!

We are not worthy

The 7 year thing is for other teams.

Still, you sign that guy for a 5-6 years deal. And it seems the money will have to be there.

IMO Habs best forward. Despite media and fans getting on him after Game 1 and first part of Game 2, you can see he was creating a ton of chances. Really hope they re-sign him. Really might be the x-factor that differentiate past playoffs where the normal Habs top 6ers disappear/

Radulov is not only talented, he is hella strong to protect the puck like that and score a one-handed goal.

I **** all over him and Captain Invisible after the first game.

I was wrong. Completely one thousand percent wrong about Radulov.

I apologize and own my mistake.

Captain Invisible has been his usual playoff self however.

the cost to re-sign him is clearly going up. Just hope they find a way to re-sign him as we don't have anything to come close to replacing him.

If he hits free agency, even the Habs can only give him 7 years. They can only give him 8 if he is re-signed while under contract. But as a UFA, he doesn't belong to any team, even the one he played for. So no matter where he goes, including re-signing with Montreal, he can't get more than 7 years.
