Montreal has re-signed skilled forward Alex Kovalev. The deal is over 4 years at 4.5 million a year.
The general consensus was Kovalev probably wouldn’t return to the tricolore, rumours had him going to familiar Pittsburgh. Having just signed Sergei Gonchar for 25 million, maybe they couldn’t afford him.
The reason is irrelevant, Kovalev is a dangerously skilled offensive threat and brings much needed offense.
Bob Gainey got out of bed and did some work this morning, let’s hope there’s more to come.
