Meanwhile, Canadiens agree to 1-year contract with Ales Hemsky
Even though Alexander Radulov took 48 hours into NHL free agency to find a home, it was very much worth the wait.
Radulov on Monday became the richest player in a restrained market by signing a $31.25 million US, five-year deal with the Dallas Stars. The 30-year-old Russian winger left the Canadiens for a contract that’s worth almost $5 million more than Kevin Shattenkirk’s with the New York Rangers and ties Karl Alzner’s with Montreal for the longest signed by an unrestricted free agent this off-season.
