Montreal’s Stance On Andrei Markov & Alexander Radulov

from Joanie Godin, translated by Shauna Denis of canadiens.com,

In the opening days of free agency, the deals that haven't been made are drawing as much attention as the ones that already done.

Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin met the media in Brossard on Sunday a day after the market officially opened for business, having stocked the cupboards with a few new assets a day prior. But if two current UFAs who previously called Montreal home want to return to the fold in 2017-18, they'll need to make some concessions, according to the Habs' boss.

Given the current salary cap situation, Bergevin stressed that he isn't able to keep both Russian stars in the lineup together on their terms.

"It wouldn't be possible to give them both what they're asking for," said Bergevin.

But if his veteran blue-liner and shifty sniper dipped their expectations?

"There would be a possibility [in that case], yes," he confirmed.
