So if this happens, should he not be signed to a 2 year entry level? Or maybe they wait untill after his birthday, at the end of June, to sign him to a one year entry level (as reported)?

That's not how it works, Johansson is considered a 24 year old, if he signs now or after turning 24 next month, so he can only sign a 1 year deal.

So, we don't sign him.. Someone else does and he ends up the next Zetterberg. Then you start a thread about how Gainey misses out on signing good young players in Europe.

And it's 1 million with bonuses which doesn't count against the cap if he doesn't make the team. Chill.

So it goes by what age he'll turn/be that season?

Indeed, I hope Gainey finally starts negotiating with our UFAs and signs Kovalev to a long-term deal with a NMC.

...

I agree with whomever said he'll probably be another Lathi, but it doesn't cost us one thing to sign him to a two-level entry deal and invite him to camp. Look at it this way: drafting him in the 7th round would have been more of an investment than signing him to his current contract, there's absolutely no reason to complain about it.

Indeed. Because Savard, Krejci, Bergeron and Yelle are much bigger players.

The teams that realize you can have an effective 4th line of "Kostopoulos" kind of guys at 0,7M/year instead of 1M/year will be those winning year-in year-out before too long.

It doesnt seems huge, but that's already 1M$ save for better use if the entire 4th line makes 0,7M (or so).

1M$ better spend on a player of Beauchemin caliber instead of Morris (total guess). Or a Savard instead of a Lang (another guess).

Every single dollar counts and makes a difference.

From what I gather, a player like Johansson will not be making the team as a fourth liner. If he makes the club, it'd be in a more substantial role.

A free prospect why not? Probably a new Salmelainen but only time will tell.

I can't find him in 09. On Farjestad I only find a "Martin Johansson" who is a grinder at 21 years of age and he's a left winger.

EDIT: Found him on Frolunda.

On the PC version, neither Mikael Johansson exists.

Well there's no official links from any of the Habs media outlets, but I checked with someone I know and he confirmed that he's been signed.

And if he ends up a steal - great! But this is a depth move, nothing more.
I would think this was a move for Hamilton, depth among the forwards unless he has a geat camp or we lose most of our UFA's as we could have a poor looking roster next year so some free depth sounds good.

Johansson himself confirms that he has in fact signed in this article.

It is a rookie contract in force. It is a two-way contract for a year.

In any event, I'm talking about Montreal--not Detroit. Montreal is not Detroit. Why are you assuming they are the same organization?
