    I was expecting like 2 million. Did I missed something?

    First they're willing to pay Jake Allen's full salary to be a backup, now this for a 3rd pair guy?

    Well I'd say he fit with the other defenceman winning around 3,5 M in the league

    Some of them are better (Sanheim, Zadorov, Montour, Hamonic, Nurse, Butcher, Dillon) some of them are worse (Hainsey, Gudbransson, Scandella, Johnson, Gudas). If he can be as good as Chiarot, Braun, Dillon it's a decent enough deal.

    On top of that it take him long to go after Manson picking up for a teammate

    Hopefully this didn't set the market for similar caliber of players (DeMelo, Gudas ect ect).
    If so, probably better of just forking up a bit more cash for guys like Brodie, Tanev ect ect.
    Better value IMO

    His salary is on par with other #4/#5 Ds around the league. People are just overreacting because A) It's the Habs. B) People here are batshit insane about advanced stats.

    Good deal imo. The defense is pretty much set for the next few years now. Bergevin locked down good goaltending for next year.

    I expect with the remaining 10mill in cap he will upgrade the offense now. Also still have to decide on Domi. If dealt it’ll be interesting on a return as the main thing most Habs fans on here were stating upgrade on the LD. Edmundson signing kind of eliminates that.

    I’m really interested in what Bergevin will be up to. Allen and Edmundson signings are great starts and just with those two moves the Habs have started the climb now in the right direction. Which at the mid season point most Habs fans felt there was literally no direction for the team as they were sellers at the deadline. I really think the playoffs showed Bergevin a lot more of the team and the youth. It’s not even October 9th(Free Agency) yet and he’s got me excited for about the future and next season which hasn’t been the case for a bit.

    Finished top 50 in defense scoring, is big and physical, I love the signing.

    Yeah, Edmundson is not too old and he has been a decent soldier in the past when playing in a proper role and a proper system, so I can see him being worth the contract if things go well.

    But even in that best case scenario he's still a weak puck mover and play maker, things that Habs are sorely missing on the blueline.

    MB when us Habs fans begged you to spend to the cap this year it’s not really what we had in mind

    300% upgrade over having Ouellet in the line up but we still have nobody to score goals or with size on the wings and no PMD besides Petry

    As it sits right now I could see the pairs being
    Chariot Weber
    Kulak Petry
    Edmundson Romanov

    romanov has a knack for blowing guys up coming over the blue line . Will need a bit of protection for the young lad when the retaliation starts . An upgrade for a left shot power play quarterback will remove kulak from this group . Perhaps from a team desperate to unload a bit of salary .

    If he gets claimed then it’s no harm no foul. Get a solid year out of him and don’t lose anyone else to expansion. We’ll see how the year goes

    Scandella is significantly better at hockey than Joel Edmundson is.

    I disagree, they are pretty much on the same level... Scandella was looking like a good number 5 in Buffalo and MTL. Thats's it.

    The Taylor Hall wishes die here. Not after they spend almost $8M combined on a backup goalie and #5D.

    I wanna say one year to long, but I guess that helped lower the hit. Good for MB for being active and doing what he can to improve his team

    His time on ice drops by two full minutes in the playoffs? Concerning.

    I don’t like it, but at the same time I am relieved. I feared a worse contract when MB traded for his rights.

    Let's be honest, it was never gonna happen. Better this than missing on top UFAs and floating cap space as a result again for the Habs.

    A passable #5 is all Eddy is.
