Alexander Radulov was skating alongside Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn at practice on Sunday.
Well, we knew that was coming. New coach Ken Hitchcock has to make a decision as to whether Radulov is a fit with his two superstars. If he is, then Radulov becomes a very valuable fantasy commodity. Keep an eye on this situation going forward. Sep 17 - 10:58 AM

Although Stars coach Ken Hitchcock hasn't decided on any lines for the 2017-18 campaign, he likes the idea of pairing up recently signed Alexander Radulov with Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn.

"I've coached against Radulov both in the NHL and internationally, and he brings an intensity to the game," Hitchcock said. "You notice him and you have to account for him. Now, put Jamie Benn on the other wing, and you have the same thing. You know he's there, and you know you have to account for him. Same with Seguin. I just think they will all feed off of each other if that's the line we come up with." That would be a very strong line and a great opportunity for Radulov to do significantly better than in 2016-17 when he had 18 goals and 54 points in 76 games with Montreal. The Stars would still have Jason Spezza to lead the second line in that scenario, so even with such a strong first unit, the Stars would have some offensive depth too. That being said, it would be surprising if Dallas at least occasionally tries a more balanced approached, say with Benn and Seguin on the top line and Spezza and Radulov on the second.

Alexander Radulov has signed a five-year, $31.25 million contract with the Dallas Stars.

That works out to a $6.25 million annual cap hit for Radulov. He had 18 goals and 54 points in 76 games with Montreal in his return to the NHL last season, but he has the potential to do better going forward. This also gives the Stars two very strong forward lines between Radulov, Jamie Benn, Jason Spezza, and Tyler Seguin. Now they just need to hope that their defense along with newly signed goaltender Ben Bishop can live up to their end of the bargain.

It seems that Montreal GM Marc Bergevin has made his final offer to Alexander Radulov.

"There's no more negotiations," Bergevin said. It's believed that Radulov's options at this point have been narrowed to signing with either Montreal or Dallas or a return to the KHL. Radulov had 18 goals and 54 points in 76 contests in 2016-17.
Jul 3 - 4:35 AM

It looks as if unrestricted free agent Alexander Radulov has narrowed his choices to the Canadiens and the Stars.

He has allegedly received multiple-year offers from both and is weighing his options. Wherever Radulov goes, he will be playing with a Benn. Jamie in Dallas or Jordie in Montreal. Stay tuned for further updates.
Jul 2 - 10:00 AM

Alexander Radulov has reportedly heard from 10-11 teams prior to the opening of free agency on Saturday.

Radulov isn't planning to visit any other cities at this time. Montreal is still in the mix to keep him, but there is interest from other squads.
Jun 27 - 6:09 PM

Alexander Radulov reportedly asked the Montreal Canadiens for a six-year, $42 million contract.

Radulov might be making a demand like that just so that he has something to go down from, but it would be shocking if Montreal actually agreed to a contract in that ballpark. Radulov will turn 31 years old in July and while his return to the NHL this season was largely success, his 18 goals and 54 points in 76 contests weren't exactly star numbers.
Jun 22 - 5:10 PM

The Montreal Canadiens are looking to sign Alex Radulov to a new contract before he becomes an unrestricted free agent on July 1.

Radulov has expressed a desire to remain with the Canadiens, but it remains to be seen if the Habs want to commit to him long term. Early reports suggested Radulov wanted a seven-year deal, which GM Marc Bergevin is understandably reluctant to give him. He would probably feel more comfortable giving Radulov a deal in the three-year range, but that would likely come at a significant cap hit. With Carey Price needing a contract extension it might be tough for Bergevin to get Radulov back in the fold.
Jun 10 - 4:33 PM

Canadiens GM Marc Bergevin would like to re-sign Alexander Radulov.

Montreal took a chance on Radulov when they inked him to a one-year, $5.75 million contract and that move paid off nicely. He had 18 goals and 54 points in 76 contests during the regular season and another seven points in six playoff games. He's likely to demand a long-term contract after proving himself in the one-year trial and he'll probably get it, if not from Montreal then another team.
Apr 24 - 6:32 PM

Alexander Radulov has decided against playing for Team Russia in the 2017 World Championships.

Radulov is set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer, so it makes sense for him to avoid the tournament. Had he gone and gotten injured then that would significantly impact his earning potential. Radulov figures to secure a sizable contract after scoring 18 goals and 54 points in 76 games with Montreal in 2016-17.
Apr 24 - 12:41 PM

Alexander Radulov registered an assist in Montreal's 3-1 loss to the New York Rangers in Game 6 on Saturday.

That ended the Canadiens' playoff run, but Radulov looked good in the series with two goals and seven points in six games. This season marked his return to the NHL for the first time since his brief stint with the Predators in 2012. Unlike his 2012 return attempt, his 2016-17 campaign was a success. He only signed a one-year deal with Montreal, so he's eligible to become an unrestricted free agent this summer and he's likely to command a long-term contract.
Apr 23 - 10:16 AM

Alexander Radulov continued right where he left off in Game 2 with a goal and an assist on Sunday to lift the Habs to a 3-1 win.

Radulov, who now has two goals and five points in three playoff games, helped the Habs gain a 3-0 advantage at Madison Square Garden and eventually earn a 2-1 lead in the first round series. Radulov has 17 points in 20 career playoff games.
Apr 16 - 10:07 PM

Alexander Radulov scored the game-winning goal in Friday's 4-3 OT win over the New York Rangers.

The Canadiens found themselves down 3-2 late in the third period, but Tomas Plekanec was able to tie the game with just 17 seconds remaining (Radulov picked up the primary assist on the goal). In the extra frame, Radulov went to the net and poked the puck by Henrik Lundqvist to give Montreal the win. Radulov also registered an assist on Jeff Petry's goal in the first period. The Russian forward finished the game with three points, a plus-2 rating, four penalty minutes and six shots on goal in 23:20 of ice time. The series will now head to New York tied 1-1. Game 3 will be played on Sunday night.
Apr 14 - 11:01 PM

Alexander Radulov will not suit up in Saturday's game against the Detroit Red Wings.

The Canadiens will opt to rest most of their key players in tonight's meaningless regular season finale. Radulov finishes his first year back in the NHL with 18 goals and 54 points in 76 games. He's scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season.
Apr 8 - 10:07 AM

Alexander Radulov registered an assist in Wednesday's 2-1 loss to Buffalo.

He has generated three goals and three assists during a five-game point streak. Radulov, who has 54 points in 75 games, is heating up just in time for the playoffs.
