Montreal Canadiens links:

- Contract extension talks for P.K. Subban and Raphael Diaz have begun according to Renaud Lavoie. The meeting of the minds between super-agent Don Meehan and Marc Bergevin are seen as preliminary. Subban is expected to receive one of the richest contracts in Montreal Canadiens history.

- Brendan Prust resumed practice, albeit with a no-contact jersey. Alexei Emelin is expected to play this weekend.

- Montreal's newly appointed mayor defended his critical tweets regarding David Desharnais. In true Coderre fashion he was unapologetic.

- David Desharnais was yet again relegated to the press-box. The often maligned forward predictably tops the list of popular buyout candidates over at capgeek.

- Marc Bergevin attended the GM meetings in Toronto, and weighed in on the subjects at hand (French)

- Carey Price did all he could to book his ticket to Sochi. With Team Canada head honcho Steve Yzerman in attendance last night Price stole the show.

- Max Pacioretty's stanchion injury may have saved Alex Killorn's face.
