Golden Knights sign Pacioretty to four-year, $28 million extension

Golden Knights sign Pacioretty to four-year, $28 million extension

The soap opera surrounding the Canadiens' captain ended shortly after 1 a.m. when the team announced Pacioretty had been traded to the Vegas Golden Knights.

Costa Poulos, a 67-year-old private chauffeur, said he doesn't believe the deal - in which the Canadiens obtained forwards Tomas Tatar and Nick Suzuki and a second-round pick in 2019 from the Vegas Golden Knights - will make much difference.

The Habs made the announcement just after midnight Monday.

"When the request was made to look at making a trade, we started to actively go after that". "Today we're starting off with two new players arriving, we're preparing for a good training camp and a good start to the season, and there won't be any distractions to deal with".

"I'm not going to deny it, you guys; he didn't perform up to par in Vegas", said Bergevin.

"That's a fact, yes", said Bergevin, who added that Vegas was given permission before the trade to discuss an extension with Pacioretty. He will be an unrestricted free agent after next season at the end of a six-year, $27 million deal.

Canadiens sign McCarron: The Canadiens announced Monday morning that they've agreed to terms with forward Michael McCarron on a one-year, two-way contract that will pay him US$874,125 in the National Hockey League and $70,000 with the AHL's Laval Rocket.

"There's no question that Marc has made an effort - especially this summer - to become younger, faster and build a pipeline of players that are going to allow us to be successful over the longer term", shared Molson. "Last season, he asked for a trade".

Given Stastny's passing prowess, there's a logical connection between him and Pacioretty - one of the best shooters in the National Hockey League. He was named captain in 2015. "He's a cerebral player, he thinks the game well". I wish him all the best. "We're turning the page. It just wasn't working out".

In Tatar, the Canadiens got themselves a former second-round pick (2009) who has shown plenty of skill, though he's yet to capitalize on all his potential.

The Attack GM said he didn't want to jump the gun with any decisions Monday regarding the future of his junior club in relation to the Suzuki trade, and the possibility Owen Sound could play out the string in 2018-19 without their leading scorer from a year ago.

"It's something we really had to have", Bergevin said. Bergevin calls him "the key piece" in the transaction.

But the weight of the trade for Vegas goes beyond the two players and pick, as the entire scope of the swap has seen the Golden Knights essentially give up an additional three draft choices in the process. "And we'd like to see Tatar come in and score 20 or 25 goals like he normally does". The big thing for No. 37 is managing his workload during the regular season to get the best out of him, and then avoiding the injuries that have begun to nag at him over the last couple of years. "They want to win and as a player you couldn't be more happy to be in an organization that wants to win right now".

"There are all kinds of buzz words around re-tooling and rebuilding".

Pacioretty's departure also means the Canadiens have no captain.

Jamil Lessard, a businessman in his 40s, said the trade was a good move for the future of the team. Regardless of who's wearing the "C" - if we even have a "C" - for us as a group, it will be important for us to have internal competition and accountability.
