Report: The Habs have signed Alexander Radulov

New, comments

Apparently the Canadiens were willing to gamble and give the skilled forward a contract.

This is an interesting development. Last we heard Radulov didn't find someone willing to pay his asking price in the NHL.

There's no doubt about it, Radulov is a skilled player, but he does come with a risk. It's not his on-ice performance that has created waves in the past, but rather his off-ice behaviour.

We'll have to wait and see if the team confirms it, but if Yost is right the Canadiens just added a very interesting piece of the puzzle.
